Parents in Virginia’s Loudoun County Protest Against LGBTQ Books in Schools

Parents are speaking out against an influx of pro-LGBTQ children’s books in public schools in Virginia’s Loudoun County, according to the Washington Post.

The books in question, promoting same-sex marriages and same-sex adoption, have been appearing in elementary schools and high schools throughout Northern Virginia. Many parents have called it “sexual propaganda” and “a political agenda.”

The Loudoun County School Board flipped from red to blue in last week’s elections, as Democrats made gains all across the state of Virginia. The subsequent implementation of such pro-LGBTQ material is indicative of the Democratic Party’s shift further to the Left on social issues, which is now encroaching on the education system.

Public backlash has been on the rise against the increasing sexual indoctrination of children; as the Post reports, the majority of the top 100 “most frequently challenged and banned books of 2018” were pro-LGBTQ books. As a result of parents’ complaints against the new books in Loudoun County, county officials are reviewing ten of the new books to determine whether or not to keep them.
