From the Heritage Foundation’s Daily Signal blog:
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s Top 5 priority bill, H.R. 5 – the so-called Equality Act – wants to use the blueprint that helped our nation desegregate schools to manipulate schoolchildren to carry water for the LGBT political agenda — whether their parents like it or not.
Their argument is that just as black children were literally and forcefully segregated from white children, so are LGBT children segregated from all other children in schools—creating an oppressed, unequal class of American children. The racial desegregation of America’s schools was about upholding the truth: that all men are created equal and deserve to be treated equally.
H.R. 5 by its very nature is not about achieving equal educational opportunities for all. It’s about forcing every administrator, teacher, child, and parent involved in schools to give any person who identifies as LGBT a platform in our schools, and special rights above and beyond everyone else.
