A head teacher who has invited homosexual activist Sir Ian McKellen to his school to take lessons today is a convicted sex offender, it has emerged.

Lord of the Rings actor Sir Ian McKellen visited Perry Beeches Secondary School in Birmingham today, Monday 16th November 2009, at the invitation of head Liam Nolan.

But Nolan, who described himself as ‘gay’ and ‘in a relationship’, was caught in a sex act with another man in bushes at Sandwell Valley, a West Midlands beauty spot, and notorious homosexual ‘cruising’ area, in 2007.

The teacher, who is in charge of 900 pupils at the school, in Beeches Road , Great Barr, was found guilty of outraging public decency by Wolverhampton Crown Court and fined £1,000 with £1,500 costs.

Three parent governors resigned from the school board and the shamed teacher only narrowly kept his £64,000-a-year job after a tearful appeal to the General Teaching Council, on the strength of improving examination results at the school.

Ian McKellen’s visit is part of a drive by wealthy gay pressure group Stonewall to use the concept of ‘homophobic bullying’ to introduce homosexuality into the classroom.  Recently, parents at schools in Leytonstone and Broadstairs have complained at heads teaching their five-year-olds about homosexuality under the same pretext.

But opponents of such indoctrination have observed that there is no evidence that such teaching decreases bullying and suggest it may have the opposite effect.

Christian Voice National Director, Stephen Green, thinks that teaching about homophobic bullying could increase both bullying and the incidence of homosexuality.  He said:

‘It is quite likely that by making a big thing of homosexuality, children prone to bully others will be given a new weapon, one they might not have thought about, particularly at an early age.

‘A non-sporting boy could get called “gay”, or a tom-boyish girl a ‘”lezzie” as a result of these lessons or school assemblies.  The tragedy is, the name-calling can become a self-fulfilling prophecy.  That boy or girl can begin to wonder, “Maybe I am?”

‘In that scenario, activists like McKellen and Nolan are recruiting children into their chosen lifestyle of homosexuality.  I should be surprised if that idea has not occurred to someone deep in the Stonewall bunker.  At the very best, “homophobic bullying” is an excuse for “gay lessons”.  At worst, it is a cleverly-disguised recruitment drive.’

McKellen has previously been to St George’s School in Harpenden and Welling School in Bexley, Kent.

His approach is to equate the practice of homosexuality with innate physical charteristics.  At St George’s :  "They invited me to come and give prizes to 13-year-olds in front of the parents and to talk, partly, about being gay. I said that we were all part of a minority group - be it for being short or tall or fat or thin, or having red hair or whatever. I said, 'Hands up who thinks they are part of a minority group,' and all the hands went up,” said McKellen.

In June 2008 McKellen attended a secret party held by the National Secular Society celebrating the end of the blasphemy laws.  Whilst there, he revealed himself as no more than a dirty old man, gleefully reading out a repellent poem which contains an explicit description of a Roman centurion deriving homosexual pleasure from interfering with the lifeless body of Jesus Christ:  The cowering secularists, including Terry Sanderson and Keith Pompous Wood, the gay pair who run NSS and who kept the location of the party secret for fear of a protest outside by Christian Voice, loved every sordid minute.

Members of Christian Voice are planning a witness at Perry Beeches School.
