Department of Education removes ‘mother,’ ‘father’ from student aid forms

At a campaign rally on October 30, 2008, as supporters cheered in the background, then-Sen. Barack Obama, confident in the outcome of the upcoming election, infamously said :

“We are 5 days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America”

Fast forward almost five years later, and America continues to feel the effects of this “transformation.”

Case in point, the U.S. Dept. of Education recently announced that it will no longer use the terms “mother” and “father” when collecting information about a student’s legal parents when those parents apply for federal student aid.

Instead of using the words “mother” and “father,” the new Free Application for Federal Student Aid form (FAFSA) will use “Parent 1″ and “Parent 2,” according to the Christian Post.

According to the announcement, the change “more accurately and fairly assess students’ need for aid.”

Secretary of Education Arne Duncan said, “All students should be able to apply for federal student aid within a system that incorporates their unique family dynamics…. [that] provide[s] an inclusive form that reflects the diversity of American families.”

“An inclusive form”… how progressive of us, considering one of the far-left’s primary goals is to do away with all manners of gender identification.

Shawn Gaylord, director of Public Policy at Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network (GLSEN), told the Washington Blade , “We’re thrilled by the Dept. of Education’s decision to allow students.. to accurately describe the makeup of their family, regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity.

    Sick Sick Sick Where are the mothers and fathers who will reject this clear remake of what a family is? Its just plan sicking how determind these no morale sickening people are. I can not stand even the idea of making sodemy legal I can not stomach this. Take that America where the majority are being pushed aside by a minorty group with government laws protecting them. As Sodeman and Gamora went so does the U.S.A. Trust me I do not have to judge no man but man is judged by his or her's own actions. Trust me God is not going to earase the book of Romans from the Bible.

    This people is the direct result of complacency by the majority of the citizens of this country ignoring their power in voting. If you look over the last 25 to 30 years the "Progressive" Public Educational System, funded from our tax dollars, have slowly become the authority in regard to your parenting of your own children. They tell you how you can or cannot discipline your children, they force your children (mostly boys) onto mind altering and numbing drugs. They instill into your children that they are animals and not humans. They force into their brains theories and not facts. Your children are encouraged to rebel against you should your beliefs not line up with those of the educational system to the point of removing every mention of a Higher Power that is far greater that ourselves. They trump rebellion as diversity, they graduate young men and women that cannot read or comprehend logic or even balance a checkbook. They entrap your children into believing that goveenment is the answer, not ambition and determination to better themselves or to become productive or inventive.

    Thet have over these years attempted to replace parents with institution and we have silently stood by and allowed this to happen. How much more until the majority stands and refuses to take any more? How much more? We can stop it but we must stand on what is right and good. We must demand, not meekly ask or suggest but, get righteously angry, stand, demand, be heard and not back down.

    We gave these idiots the power they have and WE have the power to take it back before its too late.
