Evangelist Franklin Graham has warned Christian parents that the North Carolina public school system is attempting to "brainwash" their children into embracing the pro-LGBT transgender agenda using a seemingly innocent "Gender Unicorn".
The 64-year-old son of Billy Graham and president of the Billy Graham Evangelist Association took to Facebook to alert parents about the recent use of a "Gender Unicorn" inside classrooms across North Carolina's largest school districts. The brightly-colored animated character is being used to teach children that transgender behavior and homosexuality is acceptable.
"The Gender Unicorn?" Graham wrote."Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools in North Carolina wants to try to brainwash our children into accepting that homosexuality and transgender behavior is okay - and they're using an innocent looking Gender Unicorn to do it."
"Parents, watch out," Graham continued. "They are using this unicorn to grab the imagination of children and make this seem acceptable. Their new school policy, set to go into effect August 29, includes very concerning gender neutral bathroom/locker room policies and more."
The new policy says that staff should no longer use the terms "girls" and "boys" anymore, as the terms "scholars" or "students" do not specify gender. Teachers are also required to work with students to help them determine their sexual orientation.
In addition, students are permitted to choose a bathroom and locker room of their choice, as well as their gender-based activities such as dress codes, classes, ceremonies, extracurricular activities, and many other things.
"Parents should be enraged and so should we," Graham charged. "The Communists used brainwashing in Eastern Europe and Russia, and they took the parents out of the decision-making process and the state began to make decisions about morality. This is a dangerous path."
All Christians concerned about such policies should take action, the evangelist said: "Check out the link below - everyone should be aware of what's going on," he wrote. "You can be sure that these battles are being fought in your community as well, and if not, they're just around the corner."
He added, "Be praying for the August 9 Charlotte school board meeting, and if you live in Mecklenburg County, make it a priority to attend. Every school board members' email address is in the link - you need to contact them and let them know how outrageous this is."
Graham provided a link for his followers directing them to the "Keep NCSafe" campaign, which also provides insight into the disturbing training that was presented to school district personnel on its new brand of homosexual teachings.
Christian twins Jason and David Benham also voiced their opposition to the pro-LGBT agenda: "This little thing [Gender Unicorn] is geared to grab the imagination of our children and indoctrinate -and even intimidate - them in participating in the sexual revolution. Even the confusing gender symbol is placed over its private area!" they wrote for WND.
They added that such policies prove that "radical, anti-values sexual revolution" is rapidly overtaking culture and urged Christians to fight against such ideas that stand against the knowledge of God.
"We also need Christians to shed the 'we shouldn't be political' cover and start running for local and state elections - especially school boards - to protect our children and the common-sense decency that allows civil society to flourish," they said.
