Heavenly Father, thank you for stirring the hearts of the people of Washington to fight to defend kids from inappropriate sex education.

Voters in Washington will get to decide whether to repeal a new law to implement controversial sex-ed programs in public schools statewide after residents gathered the requisite number of signatures to get the referendum on the November ballot.

Members of a group called Parents for Safe Schools delivered more than 266,000 signatures to the Washington secretary of state’s office on Wednesday, two times the minimum number of signatures required, according to The Spokesman-Review. For a referendum to appear on the November ballot, 129,811 signatures had to be submitted by June 10. After the state’s elections office verifies the authenticity of signatures on the petition, Referendum 90 will be added to the ballot.

Opponents of the sex-ed curriculum say that the materials and lessons feature sexually explicit content that’s not age-appropriate.

Among the titles listed under the approved fourth-grade sex-ed resources is the book, It’s Perfectly Normal, which features cartoon pictures of masturbation alongside explicit descriptions.

Lynn Meagher, a parent who’s campaigning against the sex-ed programs, said in an email to The Christian Post that she was encouraged by the success of their petition drive. While many aspects of the contested sex-ed curriculum are already in use in Seattle area schools, she said, what the referendum is contesting is the bill’s statewide mandate. She and other local activists are pushing for a subsequent move to change policy even further.

“It’s only the mandate that will be stopped if we win in November. This is why we need the initiative, which is now going to follow the referendum. The initiative will make school boards accountable to parents for this education, and make sex ed an opt-in program, rather than the empty promises that parents can opt-out, which for practical purposes is almost impossible,” she said.

“These [sex-ed] bills are being passed all over the country. As far as we know, this is the only state where parents have successfully fought back to stop the mandate. We are so grateful to God and to the people of this state.”

Meagher added that it was moving to see a signature from a woman who was 100 years old.

“We could never have done this, aside from the grace of God and the hard work of the people of Washington,” she reiterated.

The signature drive took place through a highly coordinated grassroots push during the state’s strict lockdown orders during the coronavirus pandemic.

“This is a watershed moment,” said Mindie Wirth, director of the signature drive, as the signatures were being delivered. “So many churches and so many organizations got behind this.”

The Washington Catholic Conference, which backed the effort, permitted petitions to be dropped off in parking lots provided that signature gatherers followed public health guidelines, such as wearing masks and gloves and sanitizing items such as pens.

In March, Informed Parents of Washington — a parents’ organization formed to resist the sex-ed bill — shared explicit content found on the Scarleteen website that was approved by the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction for 10th-grade students. A post from the website features a question from a self-described “deviant” who said he wants his sex partners to experiment with extreme violence beyond choking and asks for advice on how to convince people to participate.

Despite the controversies surrounding the sex-ed programs, Democrat legislators have defended it, saying it’s necessary to teach children about safe sex and safety measures.

“It’s about teaching kids to recognize and avoid things … instead of being victimized,” said Sen. Claire Wilson, D-Auburn, the bill’s sponsor, during the floor debate.

The bill mandating the new sex-ed programs statewide passed by a party-line vote in both chambers and was signed by Democrat Gov. Jay Inslee.

After the bill passed in March, state House Republican leader J.T. Wilcox and Senate Republican leader Mark Schoesler announced that they were forming a committee called Parents for Safe Schools to rally parents to overturn it through a referendum at the ballot box.

After the bill was passed, Wilcox said: “I am a father and a grandfather. These are young children. The youngest are still learning to tie their shoes. The state is going to take away parental rights and force a curriculum that is not age-appropriate. That is outrageous. Nothing we do in Olympia is more important than protecting our kids. We will fight this with every tool at our disposal.”

  1. The republicans need to make the lady who heads the education department in d.c.her last name is de Cos. Trump appointed her so she is not part of the deep state and would not be aware of this demoralizing trash to spoil our children’s minds.

  2. Lord, I thank you for these people who are willing to stand up for children and their rights. May God afford every opportunity for people across this station to stand up for those who cannot make their voice heard. May God also expose those who are cloaking evil in what they call “good”. God have your way in this effort.

  3. Lord,
    Give them syrenth, wisdom & every resource they need to fight for the children and protect them from an evil agenda in the schools. Help us mamas and daddies and grandpas & grandmas to do our part at home to train them up in the way they should us father…give us the grit to stand up for what is right. In the mighty name of Jesus, Amen

  4. It has been made clear to us on several topics that we as a nation are being deceived, & groomed using the guise of “Required systems” as a control key: this not only in the educational system, but family & criminal judicial systems. It’s a wrap around attack!!!

  5. Amen amen and amen! Thank you Jesus
    Am reminded of the old hymn:
    Rise up, oh men of God; be done with lesser things.
    Give heart and soul and mind and strength
    To serve the King of Kings.

    Thank you, Father, for those who have risen up. May the rising continue throughout this nation, and never cease going forward. Help us to be steadfast and fearless in Jesus’ name.
