"They are promoting as hard as they can, any youth that is interested in the LGBT agenda... These [education officials implementing Common Core], that will now receive $220 million from the state of Florida unless this is stopped, will promote double-mindedness in state education and attract every one of your children to become as homosexual as they possibly can. I'm sorry to report that to you."
