“What did you just send me?” my radio co-host Allison Sinclair asked into her phone.  

We sat next to each other – as always – during the show. Just before one of our breaks, a source sent her a text so vile that it earned a callback.  

The answer is almost too sick to write about, and I wouldn’t except the issue deals with the sexual content our kids have ready access to, courtesy of our schools. This perversion comes into their hands on their school-issued Chromebooks.  

After hanging up with her source, Allison kept thinking, “Surely we don’t have that stuff here.”  

Except we do.  

It’s accessible to our kids through apps entitled “Sora” or “Epic.” Both are online libraries found on school-issued computers and contain the usual stuff kids read for school.  

But they also contain other material. “She/He/They/Me: An Interactive Guide to the Gender Binary,” by Robyn Ryle, is one book found on a Shelby County School Chromebook. In this book, available to Alabama’s middle and high school students, kids can “question … the logic of basing an entire identity around what you have between your legs.” They’ll learn: 

  • "If it’s ok to surgically remove your breasts or keep your penis if you are gender nonbinary

  • Why vaginas and uteruses don’t mean much to gender

  • Why you shouldn’t choose who to have sex with based on the genitals they have…or don’t have.

  • How straight, white cisgender males have privileges that many males of other races don’t

  • And so much more!” 

Does this sound normal to you? Because our kids can get these materials without any adult supervision.

That’s just one sample. Here’s another from Hoover City School District’s Sora App, with text from the book, "Beyond Magenta," in the second image:

It’s sickening.  

But that’s what our kids can freely read – and you’d never know it except two sources contacted Allison and alerted her to this fact.  

So I have a few questions:  

What adult human decided it was ok to put pervy material on our kids’ computers? And why do they still have a job? Because none of this material is for kids.  

Also, did the adults who loaded our kids' computers with the Sora or Epic app mean to fulfill two of the 45 Communist goals? Because they knocked it out of the park.  

Goal #25: “Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.  

Isn’t that what's been done? Whether your child has seen this or not, it’s on their school-issued computer. Adult humans gave it to them.  

Why would anyone make this accessible, and quietly so, unless the point is to promote the obscene while extinguishing morality? 

Did anyone ask the parents what they thought about this? Of course not! Which leads us to: 

Goal #41: “Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks, and retarding of children to the suppressive influence of parents.  

Isn’t this what’s happening? Through apps like Sora or Epic our kids are processing sexually-explicit adult information without “the suppressive influence of parents.”  

Through this sneaky app, schools have become thieves, stealing our chance as parents to have meaningful, private, and personal conversations with our kids – especially for kids who struggle with their identity – or with a competent counselor if needed.  

And then there’s the consequences. One is that sexual assault cases on school campuses are rising.  

I understand that correlation does not equal causation. But as I did a deep dive and found these alarming trends here and in the UK, I couldn’t help but wonder what we have done to our kids. Did we think that handing them computers filled with hypersexual material would have no effect?  

The point is, our schools handed our kids Chromebooks preloaded with Sora or Epic. Both apps are littered with explicit material. And we wouldn’t be the wiser if it weren’t for Allison and the two other sources who sounded the alarm on this.  

So, what now?  

Please get in touch with your leaders. Ask your legislators why they haven’t found the time to vote on HB130, because that bill would take care of what’s on Sora or Epic, prohibiting classroom “instruction of gender identity or sexual orientation in public K-12 schools.”  

If legislators refuse to vote on HB130, we must demand that the obscene material be removed from Sora or Epic.  

Our kids are counting on us. 

“If anyone causes one of these little ones—those who believe in me—to stumble, it would be better for them to have a large millstone hung around their neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea.” – Matthew 18:6 (NIV).
