Jehovah's Witnesses homophobic children's video lesson

Taken at face value, one can understand that a religious organization such as the Jehovah's Witnesses wouldn’t have a video supporting the LGBT community, but in their latest educational media lesson it shows how far they want kids to go in order to fear them.

In the style of a computer animated cartoon, a little girl comes home and is excited to show her mother a picture she has drawn of their family. Strangely, she didn’t have a chance to finish her brother’s face, but that’s the least of her mother’s worries.

The little girl explains that a classmate named Carrie has two moms and the teacher said that the only thing that matters is that people love each other and that they are happy.

This does not sit well with the mother, who then very calmly begins to explain, “Well…people have their own ideas about what is right and wrong, but what matters is what Jehovah feels.”

Her lesson continues to say that Jehovah ‘invented’ marriage to be between one man and one woman. He wants everyone to be happy, but only He knows how everyone can be happiest.

“Jehovah’s standards haven’t changed,” the mother instructs.

She then ambiguously equates homosexuality to terrorism using the metaphor of a passenger trying to get something passed security at an airport.

“What would happen if someone wanted to bring something on the plane that wasn’t allowed?” Mom asks.

“They couldn’t go on the trip,” the little girl says.

This of course implies that homosexuals will not be allowed into paradise, however Jehovah wants everyone there and people can change.

The mother then quizzes her daughter what she can do in order to help Carrie and her moms forge a path toward the homophobic eternal Eden.

“I can tell her about the paradise, and about the animals, and about the resurrection!”

To which the mother exclaims, “Awesome! Let’s practice!”

We assume that the little girl is in a public school, which makes the video slightly more frightening knowing that kids of that faith are encouraged to preach to others in a space that is supposed to be free of religious agendas.
