Legal group wants elite NC summer school free of sexual indoctrination

Posted at

The North Carolina Department of Justice is being urged to monitor a state-run summer academic program for what the school's website describes as the state's "best and brightest" students. In the past, these students have been exposed to sexually explicit material.

The Alliance Defense Fund (ADF) is asking North Carolina Attorney General Roy Cooper to scrutinize the summer session of the North Carolina Governor's School. In 2005, the school held -- without parental notification or consent -- a homosexual indoctrination seminar called "The New Gay Teenager."

ADF attorney Mike Johnson says the seminar included an in-depth discussion and endorsement of homosexual behavior.

"It was also devoted in part to an instructor-led discussion and critique and analysis of what they called 'religious faith claims,'" he notes. "It was very problematic; and, matter of fact, one of the seminar leaders was later criminally investigated for having homosexual relations with a minor student."

Johnson also notes that last summer the school had plans to show students the graphic and sexually explicit film American History X.

"Some concerned parents who were obviously very alarmed when they found out about this contacted the Alliance Defense Fund," he says, "and we put the state officials on notice that that kind of unlawful and illicit programming cannot be tolerated."

Johnson believes that state officials who understand the law are clearly committed to assisting in this case.

Last year, a North Carolina couple told AgapePress that their son began to question his sexuality after he was exposed to "The New Gay Teenager" seminar.

It's a shame that the public school system needs to be this closely monitored. If you're not monitoring your local public school, then you have no idea what is going on there.
