-- Robert Simonds, How to Elect Christians to Public Office

More recently, AFA has been involving itself in anti-gay politics.
The religious right's preeminent national leader on education is Robert Simonds, who heads the National Association of Christian Educators (NACE) and its offshoot, Citizens for Excellence in Education (CEE). Regarding the separation of church and state as a "socialist myth," Simonds seeks to have Christian doctrine determine what is taught in public schools.
CEE goals include having creationism taught in science classes and eliminating programs that teach self-esteem, globalism, "secular humanism," and "New Age occult" practices.
Simonds has played a key role in setting the religious right's long-range strategy for gaining control of local school boards. In 1985 he published a 65-page booklet, How to Elect Christians in Public Office, which offers practical advice on getting Christians guided by the Bible in charge of public schools. Simonds stresses using churches as a political base. "Every evangelical church," he has written, "must be involved if our Christian candidates have a chance to win. He advocates gaining the support of pastors; getting their permission to set up voter registration tables at church exits; providing the pastor with bulletin inserts describing the issues and candidates; and reminding every Christian to vote on election day.
Based in Costa Mesa, California, NACE/CEE aids local grass-roots organizations in mounting challenges against local schools. Simonds's "Public School Awareness Kit" provides strategies for running religious right candidates for school boards. In his March, 1994 "President's Report" for NACE/CEE, Simonds talked of his success and mission:
It is difficult to determine precisely the size and power of Simonds's organization nationally. According to Simonds, CEE has 300,000 activists, 1700 chapters, and 880 churches with Public School Awareness committees nationwide as of the end of 1994. Simonds also claims that his organization controls 2,200 boards nationally. Simonds, however, refuses to document these claims, saying "It's not that we want to hide anything.
COR's steering committee has included over 100 well-known religious right leaders, including several whose organizations are active in Washington state, including: Beverly LaHaye of Concerned Women for America, Robert Simonds of the National Association of Christian Educators, and Don Wildmon of the American Family Association.
As Robert Simonds, head of the National Association of Christian Educators/Citizens for Excellence in Education, has put it,
"When we get an active parents' committee in operation, we can take complete control of all local school boards. This would allow us to determine all local policy ..."
The writings of Simonds and his organization have circulated widely in religious right circles.
Typical is the viewpoint of Robert Simonds, head of Citizens for Excellence in Education, in denouncing people who advocate teaching tolerance for diversity, including differing sexual orientations:
The conspiratorial video was produced by Peg Luksik, a former anti-abortion activist in Pennsylvania whose work has been promoted by Robert Simonds, leader of Citizens for Excellence in Education.
