The campaign for Kentucky governor is heating up, and the Republican candidates are speaking out against the LGBT ideology pushed by Kentucky’s Department of Education. Many of the Republican candidates for governor, including Daniel Cameron, Kelly Craft, and Ryan Quarles, said they would have signed SB 150—a bill Gov. Beshear vetoed. The bill keeps controversial sex-ed out of the elementary schools, and protects teachers conscience rights, and protects them from using “preferred gender pronouns.” Kelly Craft has even come out and said she would dismantle the Kentucky Department of Education. Daniel Cameron said that the current Commissioner of Education should resign and, if he doesn’t, the first thing he’d do is fire him. If anything binds the GOP field together, it’s that public schools shouldn’t indoctrinate kids with LGBT ideology.
