Chicago sex-ed will begin in kindergarten, promote gay lifestyle

Sex education – including same sex relationships – is on the curriculum for Chicago public school students this year, and a leading Illinois conservative group thinks it’s only the beginning of practice that could become a new national norm.

And even though it’s radically different from the current sex ed programs, that begin in fifth or sixth grades, it’s a norm President Obama has backed since his days in the Illinois legislature.

kindergartenclassAccording to CNS News, the new Chicago curriculum has been booted around in Springfield since at least 2003, when Obama was a state senator working with Planned Parenthood to push a sex education bill that not only pushed moved instruction from sixth-grade to kindergarten, it removed any mention of traditional marriage from the curriculum.

The bill didn’t pass until Obama left the legislature, though, for bigger things – like getting a brief Democrat supermajority in Congress to impose a takeover of the American health-care system. (If they can do that with the health system, you think they won’t try it with sex ed?)

The new sex ed policy was adopted by the Chicago Board of Education in February to begin this school year.

In a spring interview with the John Birch Society’s New American magazine, Illinois Family Institute cultural analylist Laurie Higgins said the curriculum is aimed at advancing acceptance of gay households.

“Comprehensive sex-ed dogmatists believe it’s appropriate for kindergartners to learn about families that are headed by homosexuals, whereas many parents believe that no child in early elementary school should hear anything about homosexuality,” Higgins said. “What’s worse, comprehensive sex ed proponents will present these disordered family structures positively.”

Higgins said the Chicago schools curriculum is part a National Sexuality Education Standards curriculum liberals are pushing around the country, developed by groups including the Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network, the Sexuality Information and Education Council of the United States, the abortion giant Planned Parenthood, and the National Education Association.

Supporters, like Stephanie Whyte, chief health officer of Chicago Public Schools, say the curriculum is just a way of exposing children to different family structures.  “Whether that means there’s two moms at home, everyone’s home life is different, and we introduce the fact that we all have a diverse background,” Whyte said.

Higgins doesn’t think that’s a decision for parents — not a public school system — to make.

“It is not the obligation of public schools to teach about every sexuality-related phenomenon that exists,” Higgins told the New American. “And it is neither the obligation nor the right of public schools to affirm phenomena, like homosexual relationships, that many believe are immoral.”

    Will they start teaching pedophilia is OK since they claim to be born that way like homosexuals, and are now protected under federal hate crimes law that recognizes pedophilia as a legitimate sexual orientation? Whatever you do in your bedroom is between you and God but leave all children out of it…. let kids be kids. They can learn about this later on in life……

    Let’s see, Chicago public school students can’t read or do math and know nothing about history. But they’ll learn about homosexuality?

    I do not think my kindergartner should be learning what is normal at school. I don’t think my kindergartner should learn sex ed.this is my job.

    First, whomever proof read this should try again – you made Higgins sound confused, “Higgins doesn’t think that’s a decision for parents — not a public school system — to make.” So he doesn’t think parents or the school should make the decision? smh. That’s the worst one but there were 3 other areas where the wording contradicted itself. Stop worrying about using big words or synonyms, just write.

    Now – teaching that everyone’s home life may be different is one thing. Teaching someone’s child about sex in KINDERGARTEN – to 5yr olds – is a whole different ball game. The teachers need to be focused on the fact that we have kids who graduate every yr that can’t read or write (even their names, I’ve witnessed it). They don’t need to focus on whether someone’s parents are of the same sex. Can we please teach our kids something they’ll actually use…..

    schools used to also teach morals and values. without them, a society crumbles. it is just a shame that parents that do not want their children exposed to this will have no opt out option. children are exposed to too much too soon. this is insane, plain and simple. we need to stand up against this and all the other govt. atrocities being forced upon us. I personally believe that we need more demonstrations like the 2 million bike ride today and take this to the street!
