How Christians Are Reclaiming Their Values in the Face of LGBTQ Overreach

During the 1970s through the 1990s, the LGBTQ community sought acceptance within the United States, facing significant opposition from both major political parties. Christian conservatives resisted due to ideological differences rooted in religious beliefs and the Republican platform of family values. Meanwhile, Democrats hesitated, as supporting the LGBTQ community risked alienating other minority groups they had courted for decades. The landscape began to shift when liberals recognized the potential voter base within the LGBTQ community, prompting Joe Biden to verbally commit to marriage equality. This forced then-President Barack Obama to nationally acknowledge and support this policy shift.


Republicans initially held their ground, viewing these changes as a departure from traditional values. However, as societal attitudes evolved, even the most conservative factions had to recognize the shifting tides. The LGBTQ movement gained recognition and began to receive special considerations, such as hate crime laws spurred by the Matthew Shepard case, exemptions to business and discrimination laws, acceptance in school systems, and marriage and adoption rights.

The pace of change was rapid, and Republicans were slow to adopt these new norms, largely because there was no national conversation about them. This issue became polarizing, not out of any genuine necessity, but because it was leveraged as a political tool to capture the national stage. Conservatives gradually accepted minor steps towards tolerance, as long as they felt their children and families were not directly impacted. The mantra was clear: what adults did in the privacy of their bedrooms was their business, but it should not extend into the public sphere, especially not towards children.

We were assured that the LGBTQ movement was about innate identity, not choice, and that it would not target our children. However, the reality has diverged dramatically from these assurances. The expansion of the LGBTQIA2S+ agenda into classrooms across America has become pervasive. Children are being encouraged to hide their identities from their parents, and schools are promoting untruths about gender. Events like drag queen story hours and the celebration of LGBTQIA2S+ lifestyles have infiltrated educational settings, contradicting earlier promises and leaving many feeling betrayed.


A stark contrast to this is the recent move by Louisiana, poised to become the first state to mandate the display of the Ten Commandments in public school classrooms. Republican Louisiana Governor Jeff Landry signed a bill requiring every public school classroom, from kindergarten to college, to display a poster-sized copy of the Ten Commandments. These posters will be funded by donations, not public funds, and will be accompanied by a contextual statement outlining their historical significance in American public education.

Attorney Marina Medvin highlighted the deep roots of our legal and justice system, which evolved from the courts of the Hebrews during biblical times. She noted, “While there is an appearance of religious favoritism through the requirement of knowing the Ten Commandments, our entire social and legal system is based on these commandments.” This move by Louisiana, set to begin in 2025, is a bold step in reclaiming Christian values in public life.

Other states, like Texas and Utah, have considered similar mandates, though legal challenges loom due to precedents like the 1980 Supreme Court case that found a similar law in Kentucky violated the establishment clause of the U.S. Constitution. Despite potential legal hurdles, Louisiana’s decision represents a growing desire among Christians to reassert their values and reclaim their cultural heritage.

I believe the separation of church and state is actually a good thing. It is a parent’s responsibility and that of the community to bring the word of God to our children, not teachers. This distinction is crucial because it can be hypocritical if we chastise other forms of teachings from entering our view while imposing our religious beliefs through state institutions. Our faith and values should be instilled at home and in our communities, where they can be taught with love and personal commitment.

Christians are now taking steps to reclaim what was given up so long ago: our morals, our families, and our God. This movement is not about subjecting others to derision or fear, but about defending our own beliefs and protecting our children from unwanted indoctrination. The agreement was that LGBTQ issues would not infiltrate our children’s lives or be a part of their education. We were told that this was about adults making choices, not about targeting kids.

Yet, we now see flags, clothing lines, and events aimed at children that celebrate LGBTQIA2S+ lifestyles. The secrecy and indoctrination feel cult-like, betraying the trust we extended when we chose tolerance. Our children’s education should focus on STEM subjects, with parents handling discussions about the facts of life. If support is needed in these areas, it must be controlled by parents, not by an overreaching agenda that seeks to indoctrinate our children.

Christians shunned our own God to accommodate an agenda that has now gone too far. Depravity and sin have been normalized, and we are done with this betrayal. Just as the LGBTQIA2S+ community once fought for their rights, we will fight for ours. This is not about hate but about standing up for our values and protecting our children. It’s a call to action for Christians to reclaim their cultural and moral heritage and to stand firm against an agenda that has overstepped its bounds.

Game on.
