Homeschool and Opt In, Dual Enrollment, Sexuality and Homosexuality Within Marriage and Transgenderism, Utah Public Schools Fall of 2017, and teaching a Christian Perspective of this to your Child(ren)

I  believe long titles are cool. How could I possibly shorten that?

Someone just replied to a post stating that they wish it were “opt in” to what you want taught to your children rather than “opt out.” I replied that her wish has already come true. The laws in Utah already make it that way! I homeschool my kids because I decided not to opt in to anything. Some moms homeschool their kids, but can legally do something called dual enrollment. They can decide into which classes in Junior High or High School their children will enroll. They can decide in elementary school, which subjects their children can learn in the public school. The rest, they teach at home through homeschooling.

For example, if in the elementary years, I want to have my kids in homeschool, but I want them to go to elementary school for science, I can do that. The teacher can let me know on what days and at what time science is taught and I can take my child to the school just for science. In Junior High, if I wanted my child in just choir and orchestra, I could put my child in just those classes.

So, crazy amazing as it is, homeschooling is not as bad as people think. You just have to sign an affadavit that is stamped by a notary public and turn it into your school district, which says you will be responsible for the educatin of your child(ren) who are named on the affadavit.

If the parent does not want their child in public school for a class but wants someone else to teach it, they can hire a teacher or tutor. In homeschooling facebook groups, ther are abundant invitations to enroll in classes taught by others by paying a fee. They are in many countiesm so sometimes, a parent will drive their child to another county for a class. Children who are homeschooled are not limited in socialization like people think. They are exposed to many different people in diverse locations, who have diverse religions and different cultural backgrounds! The parent and the child together get to choose the teachers and classes, though!

Utah SB (Senate Bill) 196 of 2017 Session, Passed into Law by Governor Herbert
Link to copy and paste, to share: https://le.utah.gov/~2017/bills/static/SB0196.html

This coming fall in Utah, it will be legal for the kid to be exposed to the advocacy and teaching of and about homosexuality within marriage, and about transgenderism at any age. This will be something Equality Utah will be very willing to teach on behalf of the teachers who do not want to teach it themselves. This can be taught with any subject: health, the family curriculum, P.E., music, art, math, science, language arts or social studies. Their may be math story problems which mention homosexuality. Grammar can be taught with homosexuality and transgenderism mentioned in the sentences to be worked with.

In short, this fall, I do not recommend public school if you are against your child learning these things from others. I teach my kids about transgenderism and homosexuality. They are very aware it exists and know how to be kind to everyone. I can teach it myself. I do not need to trust the public schools, which will trust Equality Utah with it. If your child is in a public school in Utah and you feel you have no choice, pray that your child will have a Christian teacher who will teach your child about it. That is the best you can possibly get!

In Utah, I bet it will be done as it has been done in other states. Sexuality, Homosexuality within marriage and transgenderism will likely be taught in Health class and in school-wide assemblies via large films created by Equality Utah, after which Equality Utah members will have a discussion and will lead a Q and A session with the youth. They may have already been arranging these assemblies wi school princlipals over the summer months. It may be possible to find out from the school, when these assemblies will happen. Then you can either not send your child that day or you can make sure to talk to your child on that very day right afterit happens and discuss what they learned with them, from a Christian perspective.

Here is a link to the bill passed in the 2017 session and allowed into law by Governor Herbert. It passed because Equality Utah sued the Utah State Board of Education and said they would drop the suit if it passed. Utah SBof E. was convinced they could not afford the risk of letting it go to the Supreme Court (under President Trump’s very Christian Republican administration). Cowards, I say! I am very upset. I knew about and fought this bill by calling many ward members locally, on the phone. Most of them had already taken to heart Equality Utah’s propoganda about suicidal bullied transgender and homosexual kids. I say this is propoganda because they even stated themselves in the speeches given when the bill was presented in committee, that they have no proof that suicides are caused by transgenders or homosexuals being bullied. In fact, they do not even have proof that those who committed suicide were transgender or homosexual persons. They just want to use all the suicides and claim they were all homosexual or transgender people and bullied.

I think the suicides could be caused by all the pressure in the schools from testing. I think the Common Core is a big factor in suicides committed by school children. I think another factor is that mentions of God or Jesus not being allowed in pubic schools. God and Jesus and the Holy Ghost are the best suicide preventions! People need Christianity because they need a good reason to live. Knowing that they are children of God and God loves them really is a big deal!

The Declaration of Independence

The Declaration of Independence: A TranscriptionIN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776.

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,

“When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station

“to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them,

“a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are 

“endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

“–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men,

“deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed,

–That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.–Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

“He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

“He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.

“He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the

“right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only. 

“He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and

“distant from the depository of their public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures. 

“He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly,

“for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.

“He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected; whereby the Legislative powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.

“He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.

“He has obstructed the Administration of Justice,

“by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary powers.

“He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.

“He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance.

“He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.

“He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil power.

“He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:

“For Quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:

“For protecting them, by a mock Trial, from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:

“For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:

“For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:

“For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury:

“For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences

“For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies:

“For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:

“For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.

“He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.

“He has plundered our seas, ravaged our Coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.

“He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.

“He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.

“He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.

“In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury.

“A Prince 

“whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

“Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our Brittish brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which, would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been

“deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity.

“We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.

“We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled,

“appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.”

“Sustainability” is a New Word

     In the beginning of our nation, states used to be called “nation-states.” In fact, in the beginning, they made treaties with foreign governments. Then the others said that was wrong and it stopped, for a time. However, that wrong thing is back. Communities now sign contracts with what they think is just a simple cause for loving the earth, but which is a contract with a corporation in a foreign country. See, now, although states in the nation cannot make contracts with foreign countries, they can make contracts with non-profits and “NGO’s.” N.G.O. stands for non-governmental organization. These, people feel, are better and more loving, Christlike and sweet like syrup. However, some of them are the most evil entities on this earth and people are falling for it.

     At your University, at your library, in your city building codes, you will learn about “codes.” Where do these “building codes” come from? Why must we have a certain number of trees? Why must there be two levels? Why must housing be on top of the businesses? You do not vote about these things. You know that. The building contractors did not make the rules. They have to follow them. Where do these “codes” come from. If you have a business built in the city now, in the nice, new areas where new businesses are built (like the Junction in Ogden, The Gateway in Salt Lake and whatever that is in Farmington), you must have two levels now. This is a code that your city did not come up with. Who did? Why, the NGO that your city made a contract with in exchange for money. Sustainability money. See, if your city or University cares about and loves the earth, it will sign a contract to get lots of money–that taxpayers will not have to pay! Taxes will not go up. Business license costs will not go up! Yet your city will get a new fire station! Or that river which was too expensive to uncover for beautification, you can now uncover! Now, even with a bad economy and many out of work, there is money taxpayers do not even have to pay. Yay, right? 

     But it is a trick. Money has to come from somewhere. Where did you get 10 million dollars for a nice city center or new fire station all of the sudden? Why are our communities suddenly looking so nice and pretty? It is not because your economy improved. It is not because businesses just have more money. It is because ICLEI signed a contract with your community. ICLEI is part of the United Nations and its headquarters are in Bonn, Germany. It is a non-governmental organization (which makes it so I can have my business or a non-profit or a University or a city, in a contract with them (even though they are in a foreign country).

     This ICLEI made a contract with your city or University or small business or small non-profit, without your knowledge and they gave (your city) money. What is wrong with free money from the United Nations? Well, it is this. That contract is where the “codes” come from. California is now in big trouble. They were the first to sign contracts with ICLEI. ICLEI told them, no more man-made reservoirs years ago, so they had to get rid of them. They had to get rid or the dams. California is changing from green and lush, to dry and barren. This is called “Sustainability.” It is called “putting the earth before God.” (Against one of the 10 Commandments).      ICLEI says we must have local plant life which is indigenous. ICLEI says we must let wild animals who kill humans and domestic animals have more freedom and space to roam. We must not harm them in self-defense. We must allow them to be where they were originally, and in the populationnumbers they had originally in our area. More land must be taken from people. It must be given to the Federal Government. The Federal Government gets money to improve the land from ICLEI. Improving it means letting wildlife take it over. It means humans cannot live there. It means more land controlled by the United Nations. Through emanent domain, which is in the constitution since the 1950’s, the afederal Government or your city or your county, can take your land. You sort of own it. Owning it now means the government is allowing you to live there and pay for it temporarily, until it is needed (by ICLEI).

     If this is true, then why is it not on the news on the television? Why is it not in the local newspaper? Oh, but it is! You just have not noticed before. Now you will! I have opened your eyes.

     Next time you see something about trouble and a dispute at a city counsel meeting or about YET ANOTHER city official giving up office, you will maybe think about this. Next time you hear about your University having to build yet another building which “has to be up to code,” maybe you will ask, “what codes?” and ask where the codes come from. You may have to do a little digging. Be like the Boxcar children or the Scooby Doo team. Be like Encyclopedia Brown or Nancy Drew. Be a detective. Be an investigator. Keep asking and asking until you get to the bottom of it.      I assure you that you will end up at a place called “sustainability office.” This is ICLEI. It is a local ICLEI office.
     I.C.L.E.I. stands for “International Counsel for Local Environmental Initiatives.” The word international had to be hidden and so did the acronym “ICLEI” for obvious reasons. It would bother people. That is why they invented the new word: “Sustainability.” Do you find the word “sustainable” in novels from the 1700s or 1800s? Was it in the dictionary in the 1950’s? Was it part of our vocabulary? When did you first hear the words “sustainable” and “sustainability?” When did your University’s “Sustainability Office” first come to be? When was your county “sustainability counsel” or “sustainability officer” come to exist for the first time?

     Where did the word “blighted” come from? When did it come to be? What makes something considered to be “blighted?” Ponder this.

     I am going to leave you with those questions and I am pleading with you to ponder them. I am begging you to notice the “wild lands project,” bicycle lanes, smart meters, smart buses, air quality organizations, city counsel problems, the words “sustainable” and “sustainability,” emanent domain, and the word “blighted.” If you do not believe that they are controlled by the United Nations, then do some detective work.

Fear, Anxiety Attacks and The Savior Jesus Christ.

You see that title? I am going to open with this statement. Satan has an outright lie that you are believing. I know because SO MANY PEOPLE have WARNED ME. They have said, “Do not dwell on these things. Satan wants you to be bogged down by this,” and such statements as “contention is of the devil.” Right. Jesus should not have contended with the devil during his fast, because contention is of the devil. Ha ha. Good one, satan. You got a lot of people with that philosophy of yours mixed with a scripture reference!

Hymn: “Shall the Youth of Zion Falter?”

     This hymn asks us whether we shall falter (fail) in defending Truth and Right. It asks us, while Satan is doing well in the fight, shall we shrink (cower, hide, pretend we do not stand up for what we believe on our facebook page) or shun the fight? Are some shunning the fight? “I do not believe in contention or hate,” they may say, “I believe in peace.” They say this and honestly believe that Jesus is pleased that they are shunning the fight. Most use as an excuse for shunning the fight, “I do that in real life, but not on facebook.” Oh, really? What, in church, in your primary lesson? While sitting in Relief Society among saints? In Family Home Evening to your family (but only those family members who believe as you do)? I doubt you are telling your rainbow-faced friend what you believe, face to face. So, when then, do you do this “defending truth and right?” if not on facebook or face-to-face to your rainbow-faced facebook friends?

     Satan has a lie for all of you which you love to hear from him and his legions, which whisper to you, because it removes all responsibility from your hands. His lie comes like these. I will follow each lie with God’s truth.

Satan’s lie: “Maybe SHE can handle this socio-political stuff, but IT would give YOU anxiety and depression.”

God’s truth: The truth is, this “socio-political” knowledge and involvement do not cause the anxiety attack. NOT PRAYING causes the anxiety attack. As you learn this, pray constantly. I guarantee you, you will feel peace, even with all the knowledge and involvement.

Satan’s lie: “You will have to give up too much family time.”

God’s truth: “Give up t.v. time instead of giving up family time.” Benjamin Franklin: “Early to bed and early to rise, makes a man healthy wealthy and wise.”

Satan’s lie: “People who get involved in politics are filled with fear. They need to stop doing that and focus on the Lord.”

God’s truth: In the Book of Mormon, Moroni, in Ether chapter 8, told us, the followers of Christ, not to allow secret combinations to get the upper hand. Just read the whole chapter. It rocks! President Benson told us we must not let communism sweep away our freedoms and warned a very long time ago that if we did not get involved, communism would take over and we would lose our freedoms and our liberty. He said socialism was already in the nation back then. Can you imagine now? Now, it is not just in the government. It makes up the government. In short, secret combinations do have the upper hand now. Do you think God is O.k. with your ignoring that? I don’t.

Satan’s lie: Social media should not be used to talk about religion or socio-political issues. It is separate from real life.

God’s truth: “I see your works.” God sees what you do and do not do, even on social media. Social media should be used to flood the earth with the gospel. We can use social media to bear our testimonies, stand up for the Prophet and the apostles, stand for truth and righteousness, sustain our general authorities, and flood the earth with the Book of Mormon, as President Benson told us to do. Elder Bednar said all this about social media and flooding. He said we are trickling. He wants not a trickle, but a flood. Look it up!

     You get in the internet and read and watch it. You just don’t know the real stuff. The really important decisions of the entire world are happening less than 5 minutes away, where your city counsel is controlled by a United Nations entity located in Bonn, GERMANY.

     Two of the four powers have too much power. These are the judicial and the executive branches of government. Congress and individual states need to TAKE BACK THEIR ORIGINAL POWER. When our constitution was written, we had 13 separate, sovreign states unite. Now we have 50 nothings unit ed. 50 nothings. Utah means nothing. It is just a meaningless thing.

     In the beginning, the states had a hard time with the idea of uniting, because they were sure that the federal, central powers would take over and take the sovreignity (independence) from each state. They wanted to control what happened in their respective states. Each state wanted MOST decisions made CLOSE TO HOME, by each state. They wanted independence for each state, with a tiny bit of unity with other states. This was the reason for the 10th ammendment, which, now, people like my facebook friends, have completely forgotten because many of them never liked local decisions anyway. They like decisions made far away in Washington, D.C.

     In closing I would like to say, no, you do not have to make this something that you ignore because it sets your heart aflutter and may give you a heart attack. It is not going to give you anxiety attacks or nightmares. Why? Well, simple. You will keep your eyes on the Savior, Jesus Christ. Pray to Heavenly Father about peace and comfort. You can fight against satan while still feeling no fear, and at peace. I do and I am fine. It is Satan’s lie that tells you to stay out of political knowledge because it will give you anxiety and a heart attack, or will raise your blood pressure. The truth is, it only will if you try to do this WITHOUT GOD’S DAILY HELP! But you need that right now, anyway! So what will change? Not so much. You will just know more. God did not say to avoid knowledge of socio- political things. Satan wants you to think so. He wants you to think knowing these things makes you evil or fearful. I am tired of hearing that lie. It is simply not true. I am not in fear. I am at peace with the knowledge of our Savior and a loving, caring God.
