Family Research Council: Dump Kevin Jennings from new job at Secretary of Education’s office

Family Research Council has launched a campaign to fire Kevin Jennings, a newly appointed assistant deputy in the U.S. Secretary of Education’s office. Jennings is the founder of GLSEN, the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network.

Here’s the action alert:

Drop Homosexual Activist from Education Department
June 10, 2009 | Share with Friends

Kevin Jennings, founder of the Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network (GLSEN), was appointed by Secretary of Education Arne Duncan to be Assistant Deputy Secretary for the Office of Safe and Drug-Free Schools. GLSEN is the chief national group promoting policies to force affirmation of homosexuality in schools, beginning in kindergarten. GLSEN once sponsored a conference at Tufts University that was advertised to "youth only ages 14 to 21." Three homosexual activists employed by the Massachusetts Departments of Health and Education led a youth workshop titled "What They Didn't Tell You about Queer Sex & Sexuality in Health Class." Among other activities, the activists guided the students on gay sex practices.

Jennings has spoken publicly about a high school student he once counseled who was in a sexual relationship with an older man -- yet Jennings never reported this abuse to the authorities, the school, or the child's parents. Should he be overseeing a major federal program designed to promote the health and well being of students and families? We can only assume, given his past, that he will steer grant money toward programs like those offered by GLSEN that put a homosexual agenda ahead of the rights of parents and the safety of students.

This is unacceptable. Jennings' appointment should be withdrawn. Email Arne Duncan today. Tell him to withdraw the appointment of Kevin Jennings.

Email Arne Duncan. Tell him to withdraw Kevin Jennings' appointment

Sincerely,

Tony Perkins
President
