The Centers for Disease Control Division of Adolescent and School Health is calling on all school administrators to take its LGBTQ inclusivity self-assessment tool to help them “quickly gauge inclusivity at your school.” The 32-page assessment says in its overview, “Schools play a critical role in supporting the health and academic development of all youth, including the success of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer/ questioning (LGBTQ) youth. Creating and sustaining inclusive school environments, policies, programs, and practices that include LGBTQ youth is one strategy for improving the health and academic success of all youth.” So now its CDC science that justifies sexual predation of school children?
As pointed out by a long-time Jot subscriber, this is incredible CDC mission drift. CDC’s mission, posted on its website says, “CDC works 24/7 to protect America from health, safety and security threats, both foreign and in the U.S. Whether diseases start at home or abroad, are chronic or acute, curable or preventable, human error or deliberate attack, CDC fights disease and supports communities and citizens to do the same. CDC increases the health security of our nation. As the nation’s health protection agency, CDC saves lives and protects people from health threats. To accomplish our mission, CDC conducts critical science and provides health information that protects our nation against expensive and dangerous health threats, and responds when these arise.” By this, CDC should be working to prevent the impact of LGBTQ predation.
A 2019 study published in the Journal of Adolescent Health analyzed 10,311 suicides ages 12-29 using information from the National Violent Death Reporting System (NVDRS) found that adolescents aged 12 to 14 who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, and/or transgender are more likely to die by suicide than heterosexual teens of the same age. The researchers concluded that one out of four pre- and early teen suicides were among LGBTQ youth. Moreover, suicide rates among older LGBTQ youth are also higher than rates among heterosexual teens. A 2018 study also found that LGBTQ teenagers are three times as likely—that’s 75% more likely–to attempt suicide as their heterosexual peers. Promoting and protecting this behavior in schools, as the CDC is suggesting with its assessment tool, is counter to good health.
But don’t worry, CDC doesn’t stand behind its assessment tool. This is the disclaimer provided in the overview: “Please note that this document includes many resources from non-governmental organizations focused on improving school inclusivity, and the ideas and opinions expressed within them do not represent the official opinion of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).” So what is CDC’s official opinion? I’m sure it has nothing to do with promoting God’s formula for good sexual health found in Leviticus 18:22: “Thou shall not lie with mankind as with womankind: It is abomination.” Romans 1 also condemns this specific sexual behavior. Schools should be prohibited from encouraging it. And the CDC’s twisted endorsement of the LGBTQ+ community preying on school children is extreme, say it with me…Stupidocrisy.
