A Christian grassroots movement of former teachers is providing a conservative backlash against the National Education Association.
The Grand Lake Patriots recently hosted a presentation by former educators who are calling attention to how the NEA actively promotes abortion and the homosexual agenda. Judy Bruns of the group reports that hundreds of thousands of teacher dues are going to homosexual organizations.
When Bruns was a member of the NEA, she and other Christians tried to encourage the leadership to take a neutral position on abortion and homosexuality, but the union refused. Now, her grassroots group’s mission is to call attention to the radical causes the NEA supports.
Bruns says “Most people are just totally unaware of what the NEA is pushing.” Her group is based in Ohio but she says a similar group is starting up in California.
