Joffe, Racine Unified School District push gay center on community

Wisconsin Family Council shares:

Bruce Joffe, a faculty member of both Carthage College and Cardinal Stritch University, plans to use the residence at 1456 Junction Ave to house his organization, The LGBT Center of SE Wisconsin http://www.facebook.com/l.php?u=http://%28http%3A%2F%2Fwww.lgbtsewisc.org%2Fhome%29. According to the organization's website, and a Racine Journal Times article http://www.facebook.com/l.php?u=http://%28http%3A%2F%2Fwww.journaltimes.com%2Farticles%2F2008%2F12%2F09%2Flocal_news%2Fdoc493dded815213142305884.txt%29%2C the Center will "offer programs and services for LGBT(Q)--that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning--people, youth, transgenders, people of color and those with HIV/AIDS, LGBT seniors, parents and family of LGBT youth, and children (no matter what age) with LGBT parents."

Bruce Joffe http://www.facebook.com/l.php?u=http://%28http%3A%2F%2Fwww.safehavenofracine.org%2Fstaff.htm%29 is a practicing homosexual, professor, resident of Racine and author of the book, A Hint of Homosexuality? 'Gay' and Homoerotic Imagery in American Print Advertising http://www.facebook.com/l.php?u=http://%28http%3A%2F%2Fwww2.xlibris.com%2Fbookstore%2Fbookdisplay.asp%3Fbookid%3D40500%29. He is the "founding father" of the LGBT Center of SE Wisconsin. The board members http://www.facebook.com/l.php?u=http://%28http%3A%2F%2Fwww.lgbtsewisc.org%2Fabout_us%29 for the center include representatives from Gateway Technical College, the UW-Parkside Rainbow Alliance, Carthage College and the Racine Unified School District (RUSD), as well as three area pastors.The services listed http://www.facebook.com/l.php?u=http://%28http%3A%2F%2Fwww.lgbtsewisc.org%2Fservices%29 by the center confirm the center's anti-family goals for influencing the people, and particularly the youth, of Racine and Kenosha. With an RUSD representative there can be no doubt that so-called "gay" or "questioning" youth from our schools will be sent to the center for blatantly biased counseling. The center will include an in-house (and presumably uncensored) library accessible to both adults and youth. The center plans both political involvement and proactive "outreach" in the community.The center poses a risk to our youth and raises questions of jurisdiction, particularly with an RUSD representative on the board. For example, to which counselor will RUSD students be referred, the counselor hired by the school, or the LGBT Center counselor? There can be no doubt that the purpose of the LGBT Center is to indoctrinate, pursuade and infiltrate our community with the unscientific and unsubstantiated claims of the homosexual agenda.

Without resources from the public library, Barnes & Noble, the internet, and queer friends, I don't know that I could have found the strength to come out from the shame and denial I experienced growing up gay in a straight man's world. There are many queer people here in Racine, and many more that are closeted and afraid to come to true terms with their sexuality. This center would be a great resource for them- as well as to the whole community, including opponents who might benefit from some of the reading materials and other education this center can provide.

The center is a haven from the biased ideology that everyone is born straight. The simple fact of the matter is that the world is not just black and white but has a lot of gray tones in between, and then when you finally stand back you realize there is an entire rainbow of color to the diversity of human experience. As for a "homosexual agenda" the agenda is to be allowed to live our lives in peace without people intruding on our lives because of who we may or may not love. The only "homosexual agenda" that I see is one that is perpetrated by straight people that cant seem to get over the fact that we may express ourselves to each other differently than the straight world does but it is still just as legitimate an expression of love. A good read that will help people that cant seem to understand this is "The Kinsey Report" And as for the notion that the center is there to "indoctrinate" children. Learn some facts first the largest threat to children according to several polls including ones done by the U.S. govt is middle class straight white males, not homosexuals, and if a child is homosexual it seems rather deviant to me to try to force the child to be straight when they are not, this dooms the child to a life of shame and depression because they have been told all their lives that what they know and feel on the inside is bad and un natural but science has proven over and over again that homosexuality is inborn not learned, study after study has shown this, and the only ones that "disprove" this rely on pseudo science, and already dis proven theories that are based in anti LGBT bigotry. The center is a well needed resource for an often times maligned and misunderstood minority that is still openly and shamelessly oppressed by people in the community that cannot accept that we as people have a vastly more diverse history than what appears on the surface.
