I'm not going to get into the subject of the other part to this, but as a personal belief of same sex gender and I quote : "How many more have to be born before we realize that maybe God wants them here." Just saying...

But personally I agree that this should not be the school's responsibility to teach the students, it's the parents. I believe in the basics of sex-ed, I was taught that and it even if we had, it's still the parents' job to also inform the children about that way of life. We can choose to not expose our children to certain things, but we cannot ignore the fact that eventually our children WILL step out into the world on their own one day. I consider homeschooling, but reasons like this are not why I'd do it, I think there's more important underlying issues about school education. You can choose to not to send your kid to school, but you also can't shield your children forever.

I wouldn't be so quick to dismiss that stuff. Seriously. That's a Massachusetts organization it looks like (never heard of it though) and the high school that I went to was in MA. The sex ed class was taught by a gay rights group and I am pretty sure they passed around butt plugs and dildos for us all to feel as well as tips on gay sex. There was definitely a lot of really graphic exchange during the class. I skimmed that article and it is over the top, but my experience in a MA high school wasn't too far from that.

In public schools? That, in my opinion, is taking it WAY too far. Teaching kids the basics about sex, STDs, contraception, etc. is fine with me (as long as the parents are notified beforehand and can opt out), but that is crossing every line of decency.

Yes, I am not exaggerating. I think there are some radical sex ed/pro equality groups that give all sex education a bad name, which is clearly happening in this situation.

Kristen, that is nuts! I would be pusses if a school tried to teach Sean those things!

To be fair to schools, there are a lot of things schools are being asked to teach that I think should be on parents instead. We were expected to teach about the dangers of walking on frozen ponds and lakes, wearing bike helmets, table manners. Too many parents want to just be their kids' friend these days and expect schools to take up the slack.

I did not read everything , but the parts I read this is the very same exact reason why i'm not 100% catholic-christian and why I don't follow the bible as closely. I believe in God, I go to church, I pray, I do a lot of stuff.... .but this irght here is insane. I know she deleted her account, but there's NO way her gay friends would accept her in that matter, when she DOESNT accept her children of possibly being "gay" later in life.

This post is actually very bothersome.....

I mean, you would consider it racists if someone talked bad about your family when you married a bi-racial man, but if someone talks about homosexuality you would consider it's non-existent.

Also, Turning this thread into a religious debate was also wrong too. I never EVER put on a forum, at work or anywhere ... Politics, Religion and sexuality, for this VERY same reason.

I obviously have the right decide what my children are exposed to, and I do not want them told it is okay. This does not make me a homophobe. My uncle is gay and I love him. We get along very well. He knows what we believe. We are still family.

My concern is that Christians are the ones who are going to be discriminated against next. Well, Christians are always persecuted, but in this country it hasn't been so bad. I think it's going to be, soon. The second certain individuals hear what I believe, I am immediately labeled as an ignorant, uneducated, bigot. That is so far from the truth. I am very educated, and come from a very educated family. We are not bigots (that would be impossible), nor are we ignorant. Christians are starting to be told that their rights do not matter. Our rights to not have our children force fed differing beliefs are now being dismissed. We should not be forced to accept something against our religion. I've been mistreated and insulted because of my religion quite a bit, lately. The people who are crying for equal rights are trying to take rights away from Christians. They are the ones mistreating people!

I so agree! This is the world in which we live though. Be prepared. I may think about homeschooling too!

So many people make these arguments without truly studying the Bible.

So many people do this. Have no understanding of how to study the bible. Different instructions were dispensed to different people at different times. God wasn't confused. Ever wonder why Adam and Eve were told only to eat herb bearing seeds but Moses was instructed to abstain from certain foods like swine? In the New Testament, Paul the Apostle instructed those to eat anything with prayer and thanksgiving. We don't have to follow certain laws that were in the Old Testament. That was for the nation of Israel. Some are interdispensational such as killing, stealing, etc. You have to actually read the Word and know how to study it and not just parrot things heard by others for years. Also, God hates the sin, not the sinner. If you have trusted in Jesus as payment for sin debt (side note: no sin is greater than another), you won't go to hell. I won't be teaching my son to hate saying gays are going to hell. He'll be taught that any sin not forgiven by accepting Jesus' death on the cross is punishable in hell. Period. I'm not teaching him to hate murderers, child molesters, thieves, anyone. There are adults who have a special love for children. They think it's hateful to say what they do is wrong. My son will simply know they Jesus died for all sin. At the end of the day, I think it's a matter of what you think is appropriate for your home. I agree with the OP completely. As long as no one is purposely and blatantly disrespectful, it's just a discussion and a matter of personal belief.

My point in saying that was, with Christianity, neither is okay. Both are forbidden. Someone who feels they should be able to love a child is worse than you? Judgmental... Yes. I never said homosexuals are evil, horrid, terrible, people. THAT, is judgment. I am only stating what my bible teaches. You place yourself above a person who wants to love a child. A man 37 who wants to be with a 12 year old in your opinion is a child molester and immoral, right? Well, that's the way Christianity views homosexuality. No one here made it up. It's what some of us believe. If you don't, we'll, that's you.

"Special love?" It is called rape. Sexual abuse. Child molestation. There is nothing special or loving about an adult violating a child.
