Gay Activist Appointed to Key Education Post

By Susan Brinkmann, OCDS Staff Writer The Obama Administration has appointed Kevin Jennings, the founder of the homosexual activist group GLSEN (Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network) to a position where he will be directly in charge of overseeing “safe school” programs for the nation’s public schools. According to a report by World Net Daily, Jennings was appointed by U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan to be the Assistant Deputy Secretary in the Office of Safe Schools. The appointment was posted with little fanfare on a government list of federal jobs. Jennings background with GLSEN makes this appointment particularly troubling. GLSEN actively promotes homosexual clubs in the nation’s public schools and is the driving force behind the annual “Day of Silence” celebration of homosexuality. Jennings, who worked to raise money for Obama’s presidential campaign, will now be in charge of working on “safe school” programs around the country.  The founder of the homosexual activist group GLSEN, which promotes homosexual clubs in high schools, middle schools and grade schools and is the driving force behind the annual "Day of Silence" celebration of homosexuality in many districts, has been handed a federal appointment where he will be responsible for overseeing "safety" in the nation's public schools. Linda Harvey of Mission America, an organization that educates people on anti-Christian trends in the nation, said it was a “tragedy” for an open homosexual to have been appointed to such a pivotal position. "In his own writings and books listed on the GLSEN Website . . . Kevin Jennings has given tacit nods of approval to sex between young teens and adults," Harvey told WND. " . . .(T)he writings and books, many of which I've read, and are incredibly graphic, and seem to normalize early teen same-sex sexual behaviors. It is unconscionable. This is educational malpractice and child corruption," she said.   Harvey said the appointment really is not surprising, given the pro-homosexual position adopted by Obama and Jennings' fund-raising for the Democrat. But she warned when "safe" is combined with "LGBT" as is happening at the federal agency, "What you have is the silencing of any conservative opinion. That's what they consider safety." © All Rights Reserved, Living His Life Abundantly/Women of Grace. Learn the facts about same-sex attraction.
