Nationwide Community/School Readings of Kids' Picture Book in Support of the Transgender Agenda Planned for 12-7-17
On December 7, 2017 nationwide "Community/School Readings" of the picture book I Am Jazz will take place in schools, libraries, LGBTQ centers, houses of worship, and homes. Using the seemingly innocent book I Am Jazz, the true story of transgender Jazz Jennings written for ages 4-8, that is filled with LGBTQ indoctrination intentionally written to sanction the idea one can be born with what is known as GD or "Gender Dysphoria," and that coming out and choosing your own gender can be done even at a preschool age. Inside its front flap summary it says: "From the time she was two years old Jazz knew she had a girl's brain in a boy's body." It continues, "She loved pink ... and didn't feel like herself in boy's clothing." It ends, "This confused her family and they took her to a doctor who diagnosed Jazz as transgender and explained she was born this way." These three sentences concisely spell out what the book hopes to teach.
It is also hoped that one will read I Am Jazz's final propaganda page titled: "TransKids Purple Rainbow Foundation" that states TKPRF is committed to the premise that Gender Dysphoria is something children can't control, and therefore, society needs to embrace them." It insists, "Families need to support their children and allow them to grow up free of gender roles." This page's sole purpose is to convince readers of the need for transgender acceptance everywhere. Nowhere, does it tell how prominent doctors refute these claims citing twin studies proving no one is born with GD. Nor does it tell about the abusive drug cocktail of hormones trans children later take, or the dreadful surgeries that complete the "transitions."
The Human Rights Campaign Welcoming Schools' Organizing Kit for The Readings
The kit begins with a "Welcoming Schools Letter" from director Johanna Eager. Eager asserts that this kit was created to aid educators, parents, and community advocates to build more affirming spaces for transgender and non-binary children and youth across the country by hosting I Am Jazz readings.
It also includes a "Step-by-Step Guide" on exactly how to plan for a school or community reading of "this ground breaking book." Step one, decide if it's a school, public, or private reading. Step two, select your venue e.g.: schools, bookstores, churches, temples, or mosques. Step three, find a prominent, or celebrity reader. If one can't find a reader, HRC has prepared a You Tube video of Jazz reading the book. Step four, partner with local leaders that would help with refreshments, finances, and even personal copies of I Am Jazz for participants. Finally, advertise!
Under "Educator's Notes" readers are told that at the beginning, the book "purposely" doesn't
mention that Jazz is transgender, but focuses on the things Jazz enjoys. Avoid, cautions the notes, introducing it as a book about a transgender girl! Readers are also told to especially emphasize: "gender is who you are deep inside," and "gender is a spectrum and not a binary ... for each child is an individual with their own unique expression of who they are in this world." However, Scripture affirms we were wonderfully created male, and female by a creator God. Binary we are--God said so!
The lesson script asserts children receive gender information from families, peers, communities, and media and therefore "many messages will empower them, and many messages will limit them." And because of such limited messages as one, for example, might receive from a Christian home that honors the Word, the lesson warns "it is critical to discuss gender in the classroom" using HRC lessons, books, and ideas to indoctrinate our youth! Therefore, it is even more imperative for Christian parents and grandparents to follow Deuteronomy 6:6 and 7 which instructs: "And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up."

Think of what has been happening in Delaware where "Regulation 225" is proposed to be in every public school allowing children of all ages (Yes, kindergarten!) to change their gender, or race without their parent's knowledge or consent. This, readers, could happen in your state! So be on guard, and be ready--for public education intends to teach students so-called "messages of empowerment" regardless of a parent's position or opposition. Yes, many can remove their children from public schools, and choose homeschooling, or a Christian school. But, what about the children who cannot do this? Because of them we must speak out!
The bottom line is: if one agrees with their agenda, one is loving, an ally, and affirming. Disagree with their agenda, then one is a hater, a bully, and non-affirming. A school system that agrees with this affirming agenda would certainly have to be Wisconsin's Madison Metropolitan School District Read more about their plans below to hold an I Am Jazz reading on December 7th!
Wisconsin's Madison Metropolitan School District Promotes an I Am Jazz Reading
A November 8, 2017 notice on the MMSD's web page invites educators and school employees to join them on December 7th for an I Am Jazz Community Book Reading. This "family event" includes art activities, pizza, and ice cream with rainbow sprinkles. "In these challenging times," the notice says, "show your support for transgender, non-binary and gender expansive youth."
For its celebrity reader MMSD has chosen Sarah McBride who was the first openly transgender person to address the 2016 Democratic convention, and who is the National Press Secretary for the Human Rights Campaign. Sarah also is on the board of "Equality Delaware" the very same organization that has sponsored the proposed Delaware Department of Education "Regulation 225" described above.
In addition to McBride, Wisconsin's special speaker at the community reading will be MMSD Superintendent Jen Cheatham (who hailed from Chicago) who has stated MMSD is a place "that values and celebrates diversity unequivocally." Besides, MMSD this reading is co-sponsored by: Welcoming Schools, The Human Rights Campaign Foundation, GSAFE, A Room of One's Own Bookstore, Madison Public Library, Fair Wisconsin, and The Madison Children's Museum.
Host of the reading is Madison's longtime openly gay MMSD activist, and elementary school art teacher Michelle Hatchell. Hatchell is known for her grade three-five "Lego Lesson" which she designed that challenged The Lego Group to make their product more inclusive. Michelle, part of he Welcoming Schools Staff, is a "Welcoming Schools Expert Trainer."

The Human Rights Campaign, the National Education Association, Equality Delaware, and so many more organizations are passionately becoming advocates for transgender instruction to our very youngest, and what about you? Should such a reading of I Am Jazz be scheduled in your school what would you do? Are you ready?
We, in Christian love, must speak out, certainly never offending or hurting any child who is caught in this gender driven web; but at the same time we must not be ashamed of our convictions, nor our stand against such indoctrination.
For a Christian there is a "transition" named in II Corinthians 5:17 that transforms us that reads, "Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold all things are become new." And for a Christian there is a motto in I Peter 3:15 that must shape all our reactions that says, "But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear."
And in the meantime, we must do what we can, on behalf of all children, to inform Christians to stand on Biblical principles and to redeem the time for truly the hour is late.
