Angry mother files bill in Mass. Legislature after son was referred to outside "gay" club by school

A really horrifying story. The "certain traumas" referred to obliquely almost certainly means homosexual child molestation.

The outrageous promotion of homosexuality to extremely vulnerable children in the public schools -- without concern about how it affects them -- has become legendary, particularly in Massachusetts.

This is the story about how one angry mother, with support from MassResistance, is fighting back. She is confronting the Massachusetts Legislature, pushing a bill she had her State Representative file to protect other children and their families from going through what happened to her family.

Certain traumas during the formative years are known to cause sexual identity issues during adolescence. Most children outgrow this confusion unless otherwise influenced, which is why homosexual activists want unfettered access to public school children.

When the Splitz family's son had experienced such traumas, their pediatrician referred him for counseling and by all accounts it was working wonderfully. The boy was happy, vibrant and quite active in church and other extracurricular activities. He excelled in school and also very close to his family -- a model teenager.

The nightmare begins

But then, while attending high school at Upper Cape Cod Regional Technical School in Bourne, Massachusetts, things changed dramatically. He suddenly became distant, angry and disrespectful to his parents as well as to other adults he had once respected. He quit his church activity and many of his other activities, and almost flunked his junior year of school. Life at home became stressful and chaotic.

His parents learned that he had mentioned to the school's "adjustment counselor" that he thought he might be "gay." The counselor then gave him the business card of a local "gay youth" club run by adult homosexual activists and suggested he look into it.

At the "club" he was told in very strong terms that he was born gay, could never change, that trying to change was dangerous and apparently was introduced into the homosexual lifestyle by the activists there. Furthermore, he was instructed that anyone who didn't embrace his "gay" sexual identity was a hater and a homophobe including his parents. He was also provided with sexually provocative homosexual literature as well as anti-Christian literature.

He now considered himself "gay" and rebelled against his parents for not embracing his "identity." The high school continued to subvert the parents, taking further steps to alienate their son from them.

The Splitz family's nightmare continued as guidance counselors, administrators, and the Department of Education stonewalled them, lied to them, and manipulated them in ways that deeply wounded the family and put their son at risk.

Their son is now in college out of state and the family is trying to heal now that he is away from certain influences, and he is finally realizing that his parents have never stopped loving him. But Mrs. Splitz is fighting back against those who violated her parental rights and religious liberties, and greatly harmed her son.


Sign in Indiana School Promotes Population Control

Fr. John Hollowell, a priest and blogger from Indiana, saw a disturbing sign in the hallways of Northview High School in Brazil, IN.

At first when I walked past the sign I thought to myself - "Oh, cool, they're starting to catch on that our population levels are at a critical phase and that we're heading for a demographic winter because no one is having kids anymore; they're trying to get the word out that our population growth is trending towards a crisis...."

Then I literally had a sick feeling in my stomach when I realized I had the sign completely wrong.

In 1968, the book The Population Bomb was released and predicted, among other things, mass famine and death from starvation due to overpopulation. The book initially claimed that there was no possible way for India to feed its population of 200 million.

Since the book was published, India's population has grown to over a billion, and while malnourishment levels are unacceptably high, it is mostly due to corruption and and government ineffectiveness, not overpopulation. The mass starvation due to food shortages never came to fruition--food production actually increased faster than ever before.

Despite the completely wrong predictions in The Population Bomb, the idea that the world is becoming grossly overpopulated has remained in the public's mind. This has led to a shockingly low fertility rate in the western world--almost all of Europe is not reproducing at replacement-level rates.

It is not a school's job to dictate family size to its students, but I am not at all surprised by this sort of rhetoric. This ridiculous project is grounded in junk science and overly-hysterical predictions, and should not be presented as fact to students.


Best jobs in Britain still go to public school pupils as privately-educated workers are 7% more likely to get high-flying positions

Public schoolboys [in the British sense] are up to 10 per cent more likely to land top jobs than those who have the same grades from the same university but went to state school, research shows.

Around 20,000 graduates who left university in 2006/7 were tracked by academics for the government’s Social Mobility Commission.

It found that class had become a bigger predictor of success in the workplace than gender.

Children from private schools were 7 per cent more likely to go into an ‘elite’ job in the media or law than those with the same degree who went to state schools.

The private school advantage was even more pronounced for males who had at least one parent in a ‘management’ role at work – who were 10 per cent more likely to get a top job than state school pupils with the same level of university education.

The figures related to how well workers did three years after graduating - and they showed that going to an independent school did not give an immediate huge advantage to graduates in the job market.

Six months after graduating, privately-educated pupils were just three per cent more likely to get a top role than those who went to state schools.

‘Three years after graduation, those from more advantaged socio-economic backgrounds and those who attended private schools are more likely to be in top jobs’.

Wealthy graduates were also more likely to take up postgraduate study, which could get them even better jobs.

‘This research shows that even if we compare students from the same institution type, taking the same subjects and with the same degree class, socioeconomic status and private schooling still affects an individual’s chance of securing a top job,’ the report concluded.

But academics do not know whether the advantage given to private school pupils is simply the ‘old boys’ network’ or whether they learn better social skills so appear more confident in job interviews.

‘Our results indicate a persistent advantage from having attended a private school. This raises questions about whether the advantage that private school graduates have is because they are better socially or academically prepared, have better networks or make different occupational choices.’

‘An individual who has a parent who is a manager and who attended a private school is around 7 percentage points more likely to enter  the highest status occupations.

‘Male graduates from a managerial background who attended a private school are around 10 percentage points more likely to enter the highest status occupations.’

Black graduates were 2.7 per cent less likely to be in a high status job, despite securing the same level of degree as a white pupil.

Alan Milburn, the Government’s social mobility tsar, said it showed that that hardworking pupils who went to elite universities were still being held back by their background.

‘Despite often considerable effort, social elites have not been opened up, whether at top universities or in the top professions,’ he said.  ‘The top professional jobs are still more likely to go to men from a private school and privileged background.

'The hope that the phenomenon of a social elite dominating the top jobs would fade over time seems misplaced. The professions need to redouble their efforts to make access open to a far wider pool of talent.’

Mr Milburn will soon be speaking to leaders in medicine about the lack of access to children from working class backgrounds to the profession.  He said it seemed unfair that those who wanted to get into medical school had to get work experience first.

‘It is not a coincidence that those who get the relevant work experience are the sons and daughters of doctors,’ he said.

Mr Milburn has called for employers to stop selecting pupils from just a handful of universities – a common practice among leading firms.  Top employers predominantly recruit from 20 or fewer universities.

The elite Russell Group of universities should also ‘redouble’ their efforts to attract bright pupils from middle and poor backgrounds over the next five years, he said.
