Slipping pro-sexual and pro-homosexual information under-the-wire,
So you only say that there should be anti-homosexual information and anti-sex information?
Got a newsflash. Sex is a part of life. The vast majority of people will have sex. And the vast majority will not wait until marriage.
Offering factual information is what schools are supposed to do.
Fact: There is lots of scientific evidence for evolution
Fact: There is ZERO scientific evidence for creation. And I mean ZERO. I'm not getting into the debate here, but this is an incontrovertible fact, as clear as the statement that the earth orbits the sun and with about as much evidence for it. (You will recall that religion tried to block that "theory," too.) And I am aware of ICR and it's "scientists." They have produced ZERO valid scientific evidence. ZERO.
I prefer to teach facts.
FACT: Males have penises. Females have vaginas. They can be combined in certain methods to produce extreme pleasure. This extreme pleasure carries a load of risks and consequences with it. These risks can be reduced by utilizing a number of readily-available implements including condoms (male and female), hormonal birth control, diaphragms, intrauterine devices, etc.
FACT: Some men like to have sex with other men and some women like to have sex with other women. These people exist, live with us, work with us, pay taxes and bills, and go on about their lives like the rest of us. They are not to be feared and you cannot "catch it."
But you would call the above "pro-sex" and "pro-homosexual."
You would also ignore data demonstrating that teaching the above 1) reduces teenage sex 2) reduces teenage pregnancy and 3) reduces teenage STD incidence.
Because THAT is the GOP platform. Screw the facts. Screw the evidence. Screw doing what works, just grab a cross and a flag and hold them high, declare that we are the "real American" and "Pro-America" (direct quote from S.P.) and that this is how we're going to proceed because it's the RIGHT thing to do, even if it kills us!
Meanwhile, some tax cuts for the rich, slip a lot of money in government contracts to security firms, mercenaries, oil companies, and others, and then we wonder why the country is going to hell in a handbasket.
Fortunately, MD80, it appears that a majority of people in the U.S. have more smarts than you do. They've seen what these policies have done to the U.S. We were once the most powerful and greatest nation in the world and now we are a crumbling, falling empire.
And that's why the GOP is going to lose the whole Federal Government after November 4. I very much hope that people remember 2008 the next time the GOP has a "plan."
