They Really Are Coming for Your Children: Be Ready
Commentary: Pride Supporters Admit They Are Coming for Your Children; Believe Them
While in the month of June, Catholics will be celebrating the month of the Sacred Heart, the Feasts of Corpus Christi, the Holy Trinity, Saints Peter and Paul, the Nativity of John the Baptist, and the season after Pentecost. It is a genuinely wonderful month in the life of the Church and the liturgical year.
Unfortunately, the secular world knows the month of June for something else. Well-known and no longer surprising, albeit saddening, there is one troubling respect in which the left and pride supporters are becoming more and more aggressive: the increasing targeting of children.
This used to be dismissed as mere alarmism, but has now become undeniable fact. A video from last summer put out by a San Francisco homosexual (forgive the redundancy) group openly sang, “We’re coming for your children.”
We’ll convert your children. Happens bit by bit. Quietly and subtly. And you will barely notice it. You can keep them from disco. Warn about San Francisco. Make ’em wear pleated pants. We don’t care. We’ll convert your children. We’ll make them tolerant and fair… we’ll convert your children…. We’re coming for them. We’re coming for your children. We’re coming for them. We’re coming for them. We’re coming for your children.
In response to criticism, the group quickly claimed that their video was just parody and irony, but that fails to convince in light of an increasing and increasingly obvious targeting of even very young children by the Pride Agenda.
More and more “Drag Queen Stories Hours” are proliferating, targeting even the youngest children. Last year, a PBS Station aired a drag queen skit for children. “Lil Miss Hot Mess” sang and danced “The hips on the drag queen go swish, swish, swish” to the tune of the Wheels on the Bus. At the end of the video, according to the story, Mr. Mess, commented: “I think we might have some drag queens in training on our hands.” They’re coming for your children. Shame on us if we don’t believe them.
Pride festivals and parades are targeting children. One recent article asks in its title, “Should You Take Your Kids to a Pride Parade?” In the article, the author acknowledges:
Pride Parades and the Pride festivals that follow are noisy and crowded. They’re filled with sights that may be new to kids, like public nudity and kink.
It goes on to talk about how to
groom, errr… prepare, your children for the experience:
Jenifer McGuire, Ph.D., an associate professor of family social science at the University of Minnesota, has been to Pride celebrations across the world with her family… McGuire, a lesbian parent, always preps her kids for possible adult content beforehand. After a few events, the kids knew to expect nudity and other surprises. “They just had to learn to laugh and enjoy things. Like there were these Beanie Babies with giant penises on them,” McGuire says.
The same agenda runs through the public (and too often, private) school system as well. Florida was recently derided for banning schools from teaching about gender ideology and sexual orientation to students under 4th grade. But what adults, some people asked, were so desperate to teach sexuality to K-3rd graders? Why were they so furious they couldn’t? Unsurprisingly, these are the same people who support removing parental notification rights regarding minors obtaining transgender-affirming
brainwashing counseling, birth control, and abortion.
The leftists are coming for your children. They’ve said it many times, they’ve been open about it, and now they’re acting on it. They want you to bring your children to parades with kink and public nudity. They want to establish universal Kindergarten, then Pre-K, then Pre-School. All the better to indoctrinate your children.
Why do they want your children so much? They have to. Their lifestyle, barren of any interest in the family or responsibility, means they won’t have children themselves, and so they have no choice but to come for yours. They propagate by propaganda.
There is also a more fundamental reason: the guilty are always desperate to corrupt the innocent, because the innocent are a living reminder of their own guilt. An ordinary normal child would be shocked and horrified by any of the “Pride” events, ideas, or life celebrated in this month. And in that horror and shock is the condemnation that would denounce the LGBTQ lifestyle. That’s why they are so desperate to come for children. The guilty would rather corrupt the innocent than have them exist as a spur in their consciences.
What then is a parent to do?
First, take them seriously. They say they are coming for your children. They mean it. It’s not irony. It’s not parody, unfortunately. Drag queen story hours, pride events, nightclubs targeting children, TikTok celebrities talking sexuality: all prove this is not some mere fantasy or alarmist fear of the radical right. Take them seriously when they say they are coming for your children. And don’t let your children anywhere near them.
Second, spend more time with your children. The modern social system is designed according to the Marxist dream where parents spend as little time with children as possible and the state spends as much time with them as possible. After 3 months (or less) of maternity leave, parents turn their children over to daycares, pre-schools, all-day kindergarten, after-school care, and then the K-12 schooling system. Opt out. Rearrange your lives around your children and family life; don’t rearrange your family and children around your life. If you can homeschool, try it. 20 years ago that would have been a difficult task. Today, numerous curricula are available from classical to conventional that are designed to let parents with no teaching experience themselves homeschool their children.
If this is not an option, then be involved in your child’s school. Know the curriculum. Demand to know what they are being taught and speak to your children often about what they’re learning. Protest nonsense at school board meetings and call the principal at the school. Not all Catholic schools can be trusted, either; be aware and involved. Know who your children’s friends are. Your children don’t need a cellphone or an unprotected iPad, and certainly don’t need television or Netflix. Limit negative influences coming into the house.
Don’t just limit negative influences; increase positive ones. Work to develop your children’s sense of conscience, their knowledge of Church teaching, their sense of morality, and their growth in virtue. You train them for sports, musical instruments, dance, and other activities. Train them in virtue and conscience. Become a person, the first person, they come to when they have questions and be able to answer them. And they will have questions, uncomfortable questions. Be ready to answer them.
And do not despair. Sr. Lucia, the Fatima visionary, once told Cardinal Caffarra that the last battle between Our Lord and the devil would be over marriage and the family. The first step in winning any war is knowing that you are in one. Know that you and your family are in that battle; prepare for it, fast, pray, study, and work. And be of good cheer, knowing that those who labor and fight in the Lord do not do so in vain.
