Andrea Lafferty of the Traditional Values Coalition stopped by “Sandy Rios in the Morning” today to discuss the Fairfax County, Virginia, school board’s recent decision to approve a gender identity nondiscrimination measure. Lafferty, who in her last appearance on the show called for schools to ban transgender teachers altogether, lamented the vote’s passage, decrying the “crazed board members” who backed the change.
Rios, the director of governmental affairs at the American Family Association, told Lafferty that LGBT rights advocates have been “homosexualizing schools” for over two decades, warning that LGBT themes are “folded into the texts of almost every discipline.”
“Look at the polls showing how our kids feel about homosexuality, even Christian kids,” Rios continued. “Does anybody think that’s by accident? It’s because they are inundated with a steady flow — even in those nice, good schools that you think you have. Good teachers have been silenced and for the most part they have folded.”
She warned that parents only have two options: “You’ve either got to run for school board and cleanse your local governance of these kinds of people making these horrible decisions or you’ve got to pull your kids out of school. I don’t see another choice.”
“You are putting your children in such great danger now,” she said. “Danger because of the confusion, because of the temptation, because of the indoctrination. You’re not helpless to do something about it, but you will be.”
