On the “WallBuilders Live” radio program today, David Barton warned that LGBT rights activists are seeking to “evangelize” public school students in order to recruit them into homosexuality.
Reacting to reports that an elementary school in Maine had read “I Am Jazz,” a book about a transgender child, to young students, Barton warned that this was part of an effort by LGBT activists to evangelize young kids into thinking that they are gay.
“This is evangelism,” Barton said. “This is exactly how you evangelize. You raise questions. You give examples. You share stuff, you create relational stories. They’re doing evangelism for transgenders.”
“The simple answer goes back to a law book in 1814 is that folks like this, like homosexuals, they have to recruit kids,” he said. “That’s the only way they can keep their movement alive because adults don’t go there. You have to recruit kids. And so that’s why, back in 1814, they were explaining why we don’t allow homosexuality, why our laws are against that, because you’re evangelizing kids for that lifestyle.”
