Cruz’s Virginia campaign leader: homosexuality is the ‘prevention of the seed’

Cruz’s Virginia campaign leader: homosexuality is the ‘prevention of the seed’

Each year, Republican and Religious Right activist David Barton organizes a “ProFamily Legislator’s Conference,” an event that aims to mold legislation according to “current public policy issues in a manner that honors our Judeo-Christian heritage and the vision of our Founding Fathers.”

Last year’s conference happened in November, and one of its speakers was Cynthia Dunbar. Formerly a member of the Texas State Board of Education, she’s acknowledged that her aim is to correct what she feels is a “biblically illiterate society.”

Dunbar is currently working at Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia and has been named the Virginia state co-chair of Ted Cruz’s presidential campaign. (This further aligns her with Barton, who himself chairs a pro-Cruz super PAC.)

During her speech at Barton’s conference, Dunbar asked legislators to get more involved in education — in order to halt the “deception of the seed” by “our socialized education system.”

“I believe it’s a crucial issue for several reasons. One, it’s what I call the seed policy, if you think about it, every major social issue you’re encountering as legislators actually directs back to what it talks about it in Genesis, ‘if I would put enmity between you and the seed of the woman.’ Because what happens, what is abortion? Abortion is the destruction of the seed. What is homosexuality? It is the prevention of the seed. And what is education? It is potential deception of the seed.”

“And so when we have 88 to 90 percent, which is approximately the number of the students that are being educated within our socialized education system, effectively indoctrinating our children with our own tax dollars, guess what? We lose every other issue. We lose life, we lose marriage, we lose all of it. So I think this is the linchpin issue.”
