Subject: Obama's overreach and blackmail

To all legislative members and school board members,

Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick described the situation best. He said, ". . it is the biggest issue facing families and schools in America since prayer was taken out of public school. [Obama] has set a policy in place that will divide the country . . he says he's going to withhold funding if schools do not follow the policy . . he can keep his 30 pieces of silver, we will not yield to blackmail."

NO ONE should be forced to be part of something that violates their standards and values.

The Obama administration has no authority to blackmail school districts or mandate this type of policy;
Protecting our children is more important than federal funds, especially when they come with all kinds of strings attached;

Utah is leading the way in the fight against pornography. We have declared it a public health hazard. Making girls shower with boys and vice versa is insanely counter productive to that. Virtue and innocence must be protected at all costs.

Withholding federal funds will hurt poor students since most of that money goes to programs for under-privileged children.

This policy will cause an exodus from public schools to private schools and homeschool.

Please take a stand against tyrannical federal overreach and protect the majority!
