Dept. of Health & Human Services Funds 'Gay' Sex-education

HHS funds 'gay' sex educationCharlie Butts - OneNewsNow - 8/9/2010 5:00:00 AM

The Department of Health and Human Services has released two sex-education funding grants under the new healthcare law, one of which calls to indoctrinate school children in the homosexual lifestyle.

The measure will allocate $55 million to fund the Personal Responsibility Education Program and $50 million to abstinence-only programs. The responsibility of the former is to provide comprehensive sex education, which is to include curriculum based on "the needs of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning youth on how their programs will be inclusive of and non-stigmatizing toward such participants."

"Once again we see the Obama administration placing politics before what is in the best interest of our nation's youth," laments Matt Barber, director of cultural affairs at Liberty Counsel. "This is a purely political maneuver, and it really amounts to malpractice on the part of the Department of Health and Human Services...."

He goes on to argue that health officials are doing a disservice in convincing youth that a practice should be tolerated when that behavior is a proven risk for STDs and HIV/AIDS. Parents are also left out of the process, he notes.

"We have really entered the age of the nanny state," Barber decides. "The government, led by leftist activists, believes that they know better than parents do about the proper upbringing and education of their children."

So the Liberty Counsel cultural affairs director concludes the government is using children as pawns to enforce the political future they envision. He warns that that is not just about tolerance, but it is about accepting the homosexual lifestyle as an equal to heterosexuality.
