Our Watch President Pastor Tim Thompson said, “We don’t want our children exposed to some of these things they are showing, th(is) pornographic, sexually explicit material. It has no place in the classroom. It’s not right, and it won’t be tolerated.”
Thompson was referring to Positive Prevention Plus, the text for sex ed classes. John Andrews, parent of a student in the Murrieta School District, was sick over the explicit material depicted in the “educational” materials. He said:
“They talk about mutual masturbation. They discuss gender roles, the gender spectrum, and in the support materials … they take it even further. They discuss everything, topics like roleplaying for different genders, blood play, dental dams … fisting is mentioned. I mean, they mention it all. If I were to show that material to a child, I would be brought up on charges. But somehow our public schools are allowed to teach this to junior high and high school kids.”
The graphics in the instructional guides use cartoon images so detailed that many parents found them inappropriate. Wanting to discover more about what children would be learning, Thompson’s group attended meetings held by the school boards. At one particular meeting in Riverside, a woman went “undercover” and recorded the event. Thompson said he was shocked to discover some of the biggest contributors to the new sex ed curriculum included Planned Parenthood and Cardea Services, which he said is a huge advocate for the LGBT community. Another shocker was that the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) was on hand to explain how to excuse children from class to get abortions without parents finding out.
“We knew parents had to see for themselves or else they weren’t going to believe it,” Thompson said, referring to the video he posted.
In the video, ACLU Attorney Ruth Dawson can be heard describing how to give students seeking an abortion an excused absence. She explained that the excused absence was necessary to ensure the school would still receive its financial support. However, the schools needed to ensure that the parents would not find out, so they needed to find a way to prevent their phone systems from making automated calls to parents informing them of students’ absenteeism.
Later in the meeting, Dawson explained to the audience the spectrum of gender identity, which is a social construct, not a binary. “We don’t have male/female full-stop. There are people who identify as non-binary. There are people who identify as gender-queer. There are a bunch of genders. Not only are gender identity and gender expression non-binary, but, really, clinical biological sex is not binary either.”
And if that isn’t confusing enough, she added, “Then we have ‘who are you physically attracted to’? Emotional attraction is also separate from physical attraction.”..[ ]
