Behold, the Kerry Messer crew's hateful email blast celebrating Steve Cookson and his fellow
"brave lawmakers" bigots, and complaing about the "homosexual community."

Pro-Family Missouri Lawmakers Targeted by Homosexual
Community Needs to Know That You Will Support Them!
State Representative Steve Cookson (R-Poplar Bluff) has introduced HB 2051.
This bill simply states that public schools cannot sponsor programs or teach your children and grandchildren “sexual orientation”. Note this is not a prohibition n the instruction in human reproduction or basic sex education – it’s only focus is to prohibit advocacy or promotion of WHO people have sex with! This is the domain of the family and church, not public schools!
Through the discussion of “sexual orientation” (which is now in every Missouri public school as far as we know of) our students are being taught about all kinds of sexual fetishes as though they are normal, acceptable, and even desired. It is through programs related to “sexual education” that students are taught to be so ‘tolerant’ that they can no longer distinguish between “tolerance” and personal acceptance, even to the point of encouraged experimentation!
Good parents encourage children to respect and honor their teachers. The better a good parent is in supporting their local school, the more confused a child can get when those they have been taught to respect allow indoctrinations related to social engineering in the area of human sexuality.
For years our culture has fought a losing battle over HOW sex education is done in our schools. HB 2051 takes the social engineering out of the equation and the legitimate portions of sex education are still allowed. Many folks may want to make the case for removing all sex education altogether, and MFN would agree that this would be best. However this is not a practical move in light of today’s political climate.
Right now HB 2051 has sparked a vicious campaign against Rep. Steve Cookson and the other nineteen (19) co-sponsors of the bill. They are being swamped with hateful emails, letters and calls from throughout the state and beyond. This effort is being coordinated by PROMO, (advocacy organization leading the Homosexual lobby, including transgender and every other ‘minority’ group based on “sexual orientation”).
PLEASE take time to write a message of support and send it to Rep. Steve Cookson and the others listed below. Then contact your own House and Senate member to ask them to also sponsor or co-sponsor this legislation next year. And finally, please forward this MFN E@lert to your network of friends asking that they also respond to the need to round up support for these twenty brave lawmakers.
By The Way: Over the past 28 years I have seen almost 50,000 bills presented in the Missouri House and Senate. Until now I have NEVER seen a group of close minded lawmakers publicly challenge another group of lawmakers to not sign onto bills they believe in. In response to HB 2051, a large group of House members have sent letters to every one of these twenty statesmen calling on them to drop their support for HB 2051. This is the single most narrow-minded and bigoted act I have ever seen under the dome of your state capitol – and they call themselves the “Progressive Caucus”!
I want to know what’s so “progressive” about such hypocrisy
Starting with the lead sponsor, here are all of the twenty sponsors of HB 2051 in the order they appear on the bill:

After sending a note of encouragement to these 20 House members who have sponsored HB 2051 – send an additional note to your own House and Senate members, asking them to defend our children/grandchildren from offensive promotions of “sexual orientation” education and advocacy in Missouri’s public schools. (Even if you use private and/or home school options, your children/grandchildren must live in the culture created by the 80% population that comes through public education!)
Also note that HB 2051 was filed late in the Session and many lawmakers did not have the opportunity to sign onto it. Your House and Senate members may already be supportive or opposed – you will not know until you contact them.
