School closure give parents an opportunity to inoculate their children from the LGBT propaganda circulating in schools. Lockdown is bringing much hardship, but LGBT activists must be distraught at their lack of opportunity to promote ‘two mommies’ and ‘born in the wrong body’ Opportunities for ‘Mermaids’ and other transgender lobbyists, as well as ‘Drag Queen Story Hour’ have been much reduced, thank God.
School closures unnecessary
The first thing to say is that school closures were unnecessary, despite the BBC running interviews with parents who think it was very sensible. It is puzzling why the Government did not spell out loud and clear to us all that school children in general are the lowest risk group for even catching Covid-19, let alone becoming a serious case?
For example, a 16-year-old girl interviewed by the BBC about the cancellation of examinations let slip she had been self-isolating. ‘Oh really’, said the presenter, ‘Was that for corona virus?’ ‘Yes,’ replied the girl, ‘I had a bit of a cough and a temperature for a couple of days. Not very nice.’ That was it. For the under-tens in particular, there have been minuscule cases and not one death in that age-group worldwide, so far as we can ascertain.
However, explaining the lack of risk from Covid-19 might not have chimed well with Covid-19 Project Fear. In any case, it is probable teachers were more worried about themselves than about their charges. However, data from China shows the few children who have fallen sick appear to have caught the virus from adults, not from other children. Children are not transmitters. There was absolutely no need to close schools.
University College London
The media have reported on a study from University College London published in The Lancet.
The academics say ‘school closures have little impact on spread of coronavirus’. The ‘small benefits’ should be ‘weighed against profound economic and social costs’.
One of the research authors, Professor Russell Viner, said: ‘Data on the benefit of school closures in the coronavirus outbreak is limited, but what we know shows that their impact is likely to be only small.
‘Additionally, the costs of national school closures are high – children’s education is damaged and their mental health may suffer, family finances are affected.’
He said policy makers should ‘weigh up the possible harms and reopen schools at the earliest opportunity’ – and not necessarily wait until September if it can be done safely sooner.
School’s out for how long?
However, Education Secretary Gavin Williamson has there will be no imminent return and head teachers have described pressure for an early return as ‘irresponsible’. School’s out for May at least. Moreover, if you choose to keep your child off for the rest of this academic year, ministers have said there will be no penalties.
If school really is out for summer, the new RSE guidelines will take effect in September this year as children do return. We are losing valuable time to hold meetings and make parents aware. ‘Gay lessons’ are right at the heart of Government plans.
Recruit-proof Your Child
7 Steps to Recruit-proof Your Child is the title of a book by Scott Lively. It was published in 1998 but is still relevant, except there is obviously no reference to the horrors of transgenderism.
The seven steps are Get Serious, Take Authority, Inform Yourself, Strengthen Your Family, Improve Your Parenting Skills, Clean House, and Be Active in Your Community.
Under ‘Get Serious’ Dr Lively reminds us that ‘gays recruit’. But they need a social softening-up exercise first. That is where books like ‘And Tango Makes Three’ or ‘King and king’ or ‘Two Mommies’ come in, in primary school. Mention of homosexuals as ‘minorities’ or equating opposition to homosexuality with racism also works as a pre-grooming tool.
You also need to find out what the school is teaching your child in the are of Relationships and Sex Education and demand to see materials and curriculum details. Never regard teachers as benign on this subject.
In this chapter, Dr Lively reminds you that you have the authority to protect you child from homosexuality. Remember Protocol 1, Article 2: Right to education states:
‘In the exercise of any functions which it assumes in relation to education and to teaching, the State shall respect the right of parents to ensure such education and teaching is in conformity with their own religious and philosophical convictions.’
Don’t be intimidated by political correctness, don’t let gay activists claim any moral high ground, don’t go on the defensive, don’t use the language of the gays, never say you are ‘not homophobic’, don’t defer to ‘experts’ and don’t think activists will ever be reasonable.
The title of this chapter speaks for itself. A book like my own ‘Sexual Dead-End’ will inform you about the reality of the homosexual lifestyle. However, you must also get right into the word of God and be solid about how the Almighty has designed us and given us structures of society for our good.
No, homosexuality is not ‘normal’, no geneticist will agree that anyone is ‘born that way’ and for that matter no-one is ‘born in the wrong body’ either.
Strengthen Your Family
The Lord Jesus said: Mark 10:6 But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female. 7 For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife; 8 And they twain shall be one flesh: so then they are no more twain, but one flesh.
Even if you are for whatever reason a single parent, you are still part of a God-designed system in which a man and a women join together to become one flesh and by God’‘s grace produce children.
Strengthen your family by worshipping together. That means not just praying together, although this would be a good time to build a daily rhythm of prayer, but talking together, eating together and generally doing things together. Both parents are important in a child’s life, but as children move into puberty, a father’s influence on children becomes stronger. A daughter looks to him to see what a man is supposed to be like. He affirms her femininity. When he does things with his son, story-teller Robert Bly said: ‘something almost like food passes from the father to the son.’
The lockdown will provide us even more opportunities to do things with our children. You need also to shield your children from exposure to gay propaganda and gay characters in the media, especially on TV, and teach chastity and faithfulness.
Improve Your Parenting Skills
Improving parenting skills will start with our attitude and approach to our wife or husband. Children learn by example, so Scott Lively recommends you build an atmosphere of virtue and discipline in your own life. Always build up and encourage each other and your children, never belittle, always look for something to compliment. Recognise we are all different and there has never been anyone like you or your child in the whole history of the world.
You need also to set an example with your gender roles and embrace these as God-given. Make sure your children know acting as a man or as a woman, doing man things and woman things is not a social construct but reflects the complimentary way we have been made for each other.
Cleanliness may be next to Godliness, but it is spiritual cleanliness Dr Lively is talking about here. Build that thorn hedge of protection around your house and do not allow anything of Satan any room in your house. Be protective, know your adversary, monitor TV viewing (if any) as well as mobile phone and social media use.
Instead of using the home-schooling material from the BBC, look online for Christian teaching materials. I saw the BBC promoting David Attenborough, so never forget part of recruit-proofing your child is sharing about the wonders of God’s creation. Here at Wernlwyd we are always amazed at how God has designed our animals, plants and the whole of our environment. We long to share that with visitors, but that will have to wait for now.
Be Active in Your Community.
Lastly, Dr Lively urges us to be active in our community. He means being prophetic, and sets out a number of issues on which Christians need to be informed and vocal. This will be second-nature to members of Christian Voice but we can all benefit from Scott Lively’s wisdom and experience of the battles he himself has fought.
The Bible shows that we should never miss an opportunity to point out how much better are the ways of the Lord to those of the world. Whenever your child asks you a question, always ask ‘Why do you ask that? to find out what is at the root of the question. Whatever subject comes up, teaching righteousness about it to our children becomes part of life:
Deut 6:7 And thou shalt teach (God’s ways) diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.
So make full use of this opportunity to teach your children. You might even get used to it and decide to make it full-time. In any case, keep giving them immunity against recruitment by Satan even when, or if, they return to school.
