School Children, White Infants Targeted for Woke Propaganda, ‘Porn Literacy’

Written by Dr. Everett Piper

[Last] week “A Message from the Gay Community” was posted on YouTube. It was delivered in song by the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus.

Here’s a smattering of the lyrics.

“You think we’re sinful. You think that we’ll corrupt your kids, if our agenda goes unchecked. Funny just this once, you’re correct.  

We’ll convert your children.  It happens bit by bit.  Quietly and subtly, and you will barely notice it.

Neil Steinberg’s Flawed Take on Critical Race Theory

Written by James E. McNally

Opposition to the teaching of a seriously flawed ideology known as critical race theory has drawn the ire of Chicago Sun-Times columnist Neil Steinberg. His column is riddled with almost as many flaws as the NY Times “1619 Project”, apparently championed by Steinberg, which inanely asserts that the American Revolution was conducted because the colonists feared that Great Britain was about to abolish slavery, a ridiculous charge (among many contained in the document) debunked by serious historians of various political persuasions.… Continue Reading

“We Should Not Be Ashamed of Our History” (Illinois Family Spotlight #257)

On this edition of Spotlight, the Reverend C.L. Bryant urges Americans to “push back and stand up against the tyranny that is encroaching upon our civil liberties.” Speaking with Monte Larrick, he stresses that individual freedom and our right to self-governance are in jeopardy. Rev. Bryant recounts his experience growing up in Shreveport, LA in the midst of the civil rights movement and contrasts it with the message that proponents of Critical Race Theory are touting today.… Continue Reading

The Mission of a Modern Christian School

Written by Trevor Grant Thomas

A quote that is sometimes mistakenly credited to C.S. Lewis declares, “Education without values, as useful as it is, seems rather to make man a more clever devil.” A clue that this was not uttered by Lewis is that it doesn’t quite capture the truth. As Lewis would well know, an education without values would be quite unlikely to be “useful.” What’s more, virtually all education incorporates some sort of values.… Continue Reading

Stopping Communism One School District At A Time

Written by Robert Knight

Once upon a time not so long ago, Loudoun County, Virginia, was the most conservative county in the Washington, D.C. metro area.

An exurb outside the Beltway with a high-tech corridor rivaling California’s Silicon Valley, plus the Washington Football team’s headquarters and Dulles Airport, Loudoun’s sprawling suburbia is supplanting farmland like super-charged kudzu.

The eastern part is home to more than 100 huge, gray “data centers,” through which more than 70 percent of the world’s Internet traffic flows. … Continue Reading

“Homeschooling, Anchors, and Salty Arrows” (Illinois Family Spotlight #255)

Featuring Kenna and Eliana Hartian and Jenna Smith, the offspring of IFA’s executive director David Smith and board member Richard Hartian, this treble of rollicking females conclude their guest appearance with a discussion about effective Christianity, the many benefits of homeschooling besides academics, the supremacy of the Word, and some public-home school comparisons.

SPOTLIGHT: Laurie Higgins on “The Transing of Public Schools”

Written by Benjamin Smith

On this edition of Spotlight, Laurie Higgins joins Jim Schneider, host of VCY America’s CrossTalk program, for a lively discussion of the ubiquitous indoctrination agenda in our nation’s government schools. Laurie’s experience as an educator and, for the past thirteen years, IFI’s cultural affairs writer has given her valuable insight on the small, subtle, incremental steps that have led public schools away from focusing on academic instruction to prioritizing social and sexual indoctrination.… Continue Reading

SPOTLIGHT: “Critical Grace Reality”

Written by Benjamin Smith

Ever wonder why most secularists seem perpetually angry? Is it possible they are attempting to be justified by works – dry bones trying to walk around all by themselves? This phenomenon is especially evident in Critical Race Theory (CRT), where people are either prompted to feel they are the chosen “race” or are told they are inherently evil and can only be “saved” by adhering to the “antiracist” law. There is no grace in CRT, only judgement and condemnation.… Continue Reading

“Critical Grace Reality” (Illinois Family Spotlight #250)

Ever wonder why most secularists seem perpetually angry? Consider the possibility that they are trying to be justified by works–dry bones trying to walk around all by themselves. This phenomena is especially evident in Critical Race Theory (CRT), where people are either prompted to feel like they are the chosen “race,” or are told that they are inherently evil and can only be saved by keeping the “antiracist” law. There is no grace in CRT, only judgement and condemnation.… Continue Reading

‘The 1619 Project’ and the Red Meat Project

Written by R. Emmett Tyrrell Jr.

According to the Washington Times — also known as the Good Times — last week, the Biden administration made plans “to offer grants for U.S. history classes that teach critical race theory and the ‘1619 Project,'” which is a confection of The New York Times. Both critical race theory and “The 1619 Project” are based on the fundamental insight that slavery is, according to the Washington Times, “the centerpiece of the American narrative.”… Continue Reading
