Dear Recover America Friend,
May 6th, school board elections for many of our public schools will take place across Texas. Please pay attention to your local races and make sure you get informed as to what the candidates believe and what they propose to address issues in your local school district. If you are fortunate to have your children in private schools or have home-schooled your children, please have concern for the children who are trapped in our government schools, many of whom are being sexualized and indoctrinated by “educrats” who refuse to listen to their constituents and believe they know what is best for the school-age generation.
Increasingly, parents, candidates and concerned citizens are coming to us for assistance. Recently we received a letter from a parent in one of the major ISD’s in the Houston metro area who followed the prescribed process for protesting a disgusting book she found in the library of her child’s school. The book was filled with vulgarity, and discussions about a boy wanting to transition to become a girl, which is medically impossible. The parent listed page numbers and her objections to the book being in the school. The parent cited 7 pages that carried vulgar language, 10 examples of “obscene material,” and 4 pages she deemed “harmful materials.”
On January 18, 2023, she received a letter from the principal, which in part stated: “The book is educationally suitable for the school library collection” … “The book is not pervasively vulgar,” and, “The material is a part of developing and presenting multiple viewpoints related to issues impacting our students.” These are standard “excuses” for doing nothing and the book remained in the library
I have a copy of this book on my desk. It is one of the milder of many books that are on our public-school library shelves that are nothing short of pornography. There is no redeeming value in them, and they should not be available and promoted by our schools and administrators. However, as illustrated above, it is extremely difficult, and in some school districts impossible to successfully challenge the illicit views of what books are acceptable to our school children.
I salute the efforts of the parent and others because they have exposed themselves at school board meetings to rebuke and challenge, often without the support of other parents. I understand this quite well. Following an address I made to a local conservative women’s meeting, I was attacked because of a single statement taken out of context by the Houston Chronicle and Right-Wing Watch, both far left-leaning organizations. Providentially Michael Berry read the article in the Chronicle and came to my defense on his wildly popular Houston KPRC radio show. You can listen to our interview with Michael Berry by clicking here.
My newest book, "America at the Crossroads…Choosing Normal over Crazy", is co-authored with Steve Feazel, who has co-authored a number of books with such notables as Governor Mike Huckabee and Dr. Carol Swain. Governor Mike Huckabee wrote the foreword to the book, and it should be available by late spring or early summer. It is a hard hitting but truthful look at our culture and the war that is being waged for the soul of America. Please pray that the book gets a wide audience.
We are on the front lines of the war being fought for our children. We have a 4-year plan to address the anti-God and anti-American curriculums in Texas public schools, by informing and mobilizing pastors and concerned Texas citizens to get involved in civic matters at the school-board level. We are committed to winning the war, but we need partners to join us who will pray for us and financially invest in our work. You may do so by clicking the donate button below. I pray that everyone who reads this latest report will be inclined to help us.
