School Board Rejects ‘LGBTQ History Month’
After a conservative sweep, the Miami-Dade school board stood for parental rights and biblical principles. This is an answer to our prayers!
From Breitbart. The Miami-Dade School Board overwhelmingly voted to reject recognizing October as “LGBTQ History Month.”
After listening to three hours of heated debate, the board voted 8-1 Wednesday evening to strike down the measure that would also have included teaching 12th graders about Supreme Court cases Obergefell v. Hodges (inventing the constitutional right to gay marriage) and Bostock v. Clayton County (adding a “sexual orientation” protection to Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964).
Last year, the board voted 7-1 in favor of defining October as “LGBTQ History Month,” something that did not include teaching about Obergefell or Bostock.
The lone vote in favor was school board member Lucia Baez Geller, who proffered the measure.
“There is an election year and the anti-LGBTQ+ rhetoric is a tool used by some to spread misinformation,” she said, according to the Miami Herald. “This is just plain disinformation.” …
Many who spoke against the measure were concerned that it was yet another instance of a school board attempting to indoctrinate children, with one pastor telling the Herald that it was a “Trojan horse.” Other opponents brought up parental rights and responsibilities in teaching their children about LGBTQ persons. …
The vote comes as the Miami-Dade County School Board flipped to conservative control on August 23 — though, new members are not set to take office until November. …
