Under the guise of promoting “sexual health” and adapting to modernity, education authorities and front groups for Big Abortion in Texas are plotting to sexualize children as young kindergarten. The consequences could be devastating.
Leading the charge to corrupt young Texans is Texas Education Board Commissioner Mike Morath, who is working to overhaul the state’s already radical sex-ed standards. Among other topics, Morath is hoping to present information on “sexual risk reduction methods,” “healthy relationships,” and “anatomy” to children as young as 4 and 5.
“By the end of middle school, adolescents should understand sexual risk avoidance as the primary goal and learn sexual risk reduction methods that may be needed later in their lives,” Morath wrote in recommendations on how to update Texas sex-ed programs. He added that government schools can and should “play an important role” in teaching children about sex.
Also working to indoctrinate young children in Texas is the fringe leftwing group “Texas Freedom Network.” Among other topics, the group wants more LGBT propaganda added in. It also complains that because more than half of Texas children supposedly become sexually active before leaving high-school, that all children must learn perversion at school.
The outfit, which works to demonize and marginalize Christians and other people with traditional values, is at the forefront of attacking Texas’ current sex-ed programs. Establishment media outlets have given the fringe group endless free media coverage, without ever mentioning that it was founded by recently departed Planned Parenthood boss and pro-abortion fanatic Cecile Richards.
Another deception being parroted by the fake media is the idea that Texas has more teen pregnancies than other states. What the advocates of sexualizing children refuse to mention is that this is only because Texas girls are far less likely to kill their unborn babies in abortions.
There are reportedly several sensible experts on the advisory panel considering changes to the sex-ed program. However, they are under relentless pressure from advocates of sexualizing and grooming children at the earliest possible ages.
Especially infuriating to sex-ed peddlers are the experts who oppose killing unborn babies and who believe what the Bible says about sex: that it should be reserved for marriage. The evidence also shows that the biblical view of marriage is best from a health and mental health perspective.
The final vote on updating Texas’s sex-ed standards is expected in September of 2020.
From sexually transmitted diseases and mental scars to learning problems and future marital issues, encouraging children to fornicate and engage in perversion and debauchery has horrifying consequences that will result in life-long damage. It is time for Americans and Texans to “just say no” to the sexualization of children.
