Activists are urging pastors and parents upset by explicit content in sex ed curriculum used in public schools to be relentless in pushing back while building rapport with school officials.

At a breakout session hosted by Cathy Ruse of the Family Research Council during the Watchmen on the Wall conference at the Hyatt Regency hotel on Capitol Hill, Elizabeth Johnston, who is known as The Activist Mommy, urged attendees to be vigilant, noting  that pornographic, gender-bending sex ed materials are being pushed in schools nationwide.

And people cannot continue with the illusion that if they live in a culturally conservative state or district that it will not affect them, she said, as many are innocently ignorant about how deeply entrenched it is.

Johnston, who personally home schools her children but herself attended public schools and taught in them, believes public education is in crisis.

“And it not just a Common Core crisis, not just a crisis of dumbing down our children. It’s much, much worse than that. It is a moral crisis, and we’re paying for it,” she said as she recounted several instances of sexually explicit content and events that took place at public schools.

“In Durham, North Carolina — Bible Belt, folks — in a middle school, they didn’t just have drag queens reading stories, they had a drag show … to [supposedly] fight oppression and bullying.”

She added, “How much you want to bet that if a Christian student rises up and says ‘We don’t want this drag show’ that that Christian will be bullied while they fight bullying and oppression with their drag show.”

In a conservative district of Indiana, students were taught how to take a bus route to Planned Parenthood, she said. And it’s well-funded left-wing groups like the abortion giant that are actively pushing perversion on young people through deceptively-worded health lessons.

“They are teaching our children how to play with blood in their sexual activities. They are teaching our children fisting, which you don’t even know what that is, most of you. But it’s sticking your fist in body parts as a sexual act,” Johnston said.

Yet many people are still unaware this is going on, she said, noting that sex education materials are cloaked with euphemisms like “family life,” and therefore, no red flags go off in the minds of parents concerning what happens at school. If parents demand to see the curriculum and nothing looks objectionable teachers are still given “resources” for their classroom the school is not obligated to disclose as they are not technically part of the curriculum, she said.
