Brazil’s President Jair Bolsonaro recently instructed the Brazilian Ministry of Education to draft a bill that prohibits “gender ideology” in Brazil’s public elementary schools. “We are going to unite the people, rescue the family, respect religions and our Judeo-Christian tradition, combat gender ideology and preserve our values,” Bolsonaro said.
President Bolsonaro’s resolute courageousness to speak up makes one wonder where the prophetic voices in America are. We are referring to those weeping “between the porch and the altar” (Joel 2:17) over the spiritual condition of a nation founded “for the glory of God and advancement of the Christian faith,” as it states in the Mayflower Compact.
President Bolsonaro’s likely problem with “gender ideology” concerns its glaringly discreditable feature of intolerance for any viewpoint but its own. This intolerance has been driven so far as to incorporate something so unsubstantiated as “gender ideology” into the very foundation of government-run preschool through third-level education. Until this scheme has been exposed and resolved, we should not expect God’s favor on public education, according to Dan Smithwick.
The reason why America’s godly heritage had to be eliminated from public education becomes clear from the following:
“Reality must be suppressed,” writes William S. Lind. “If the ideology has power, it uses its power to undertake this suppression. It forbids writing or speaking certain facts. Its goal is to prevent not only expression of thoughts that contradict what ‘must be true,’ but thinking such thoughts. In the end, the result is inevitably the concentration camp, the gulag and the grave.
“While some Americans have believed in ideologies, America itself never had an official, state ideology – up until now. But what happens today to Americans who suggest that there are differences among ethnic groups, or that the traditional social roles of men and women reflect their different natures, or that homosexuality is morally wrong? If they are public figures, they must grovel in the dirt in endless, canting apologies. If they are university students, they face star chamber courts and possible expulsion. If they are employees of private corporations, they may face loss of their jobs. What was their crime? Contradicting America’s new state ideology of ‘Political Correctness.'”
Where are America’s prophets with the ability to discern God’s plan to expedite an all-out exodus from impious, dissolute, “sexularized” public schools? Imperious bureaucrats now demand compulsory sexual inculcation of America’s youth, regardless of parental objections. It will be understood that this is merely the overture to the main event.
If America is to survive, Christians must move away from public education as they go up against Washington bureaucrats’ idolatrous crusade on children, capped off with the instilling of state-directed values over the objection of parents. We must adopt an attitude of resistance, resilience and repentance; the latter over what we Christians have allowed to let happen to public education and culture.
