The Colorado Springs-based Christian group Focus on the Family is accusing national gay advocacy groups of using bullying-prevention initiatives at schools to introduce the viewpoint that homosexuality is normal.
Focus on the Family education expert Candi Cushman told The Denver Post that the Christian group supports bullying prevention but that the issue "is being hijacked by activists."
The Colorado Springs-based group says gay groups are being deceptive and trumping the opposing viewpoints of conservative Christians.
The national Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network says it wants all students to be treated with respect regardless of sexual orientation, religion or race.
