"What happens in Ms. Buford's class stays in Ms. Buford's class," is what the substitute teacher told eighth-grade students at Ashburn Community Elementary School after showing the R-rated movie, according to a lawsuit filed Friday in Cook County Circuit Court."

What movie did the substitute teacher show? Brokeback Mountain! You remember that movie, the one that has sex scenes of men with men,as well as with women and men. I realize this is the same old song and dance when I comment on things like this, but there is a point to be made and considered. The envelope keeps getting pushed further and further, while people become more and more numb. What had to have happened in our culture for a substitute teacher to believe the right thing to do would be to show an R rated movie to 12 year old students? Let alone an R rated movie promoting homosexuality.

What has happened is the continual, non-stop, onslaught, of homosexual propaganda from their activists. Their efforts will not cease unless or until they win. Winning for them means that they get your children. They want your children to embrace the perversion that is their lifestyle and they will stop at nothing to get that goal accomplished. It is times like these that our great comfort is in the reality that God in His sovereignty is allowing this for a season, and like Sodom and Gomorrah the day of judgment will come.

Our mission is to stay in the battle, not let things like this go by unnoticed and continue to fight the good fight. Sharing the good news that Jesus Christ died on a cross to forgive all sins, even the sin of homosexuality. Eventually it will mean real persecution for those who will carry their cross in this arena, but that is to be welcomed with joy. And for those of you who are allowing your children to go off to public school each day, please stay on top of things that are happening in your child's school. Remember this, even if you know and trust their teachers, you never know what day they might have a substitute!
