Public schools should teach homosexuality as crime against nature
Shortly after President Obama announced that “Gay Rights are Human Rights” and that he would initiate sanctions against countries that did not protect and promote homosexual “rights,” police in St. Petersburg, Russia, arrested two gay-rights activists for breaking a law that prohibits the promotion of homosexuality and the dissemination of gay propaganda to minors.
I suppose President Obama is willing to put at risk all the progress the United States has made with the ex-communist country since the presidency of the honorable Ronald Reagan Presidency to please his LGBT constituency.
In between Obama’s reckless and immoral proclamation and threat and the Russian arrest, Diane Schneider of the National Education Association (NEA) teachers union, made her own reckless and immoral proclamation before a committee of the United Nations. She declared that a priority should be made to teach homosexuality to middle- and high-schoolers worldwide and that anyone opposed to homosexuality is “stuck in a binary box that religion and family create.” (See parentalrights.org.)
Mitt Romney says he wants to restore a “great America.” I hope he means an America that is pro-religion and family, like Russia, and a pro-constitutional America.
If anything is taught at all in the public schools about homosexuality, it should be limited to a simple definition in the 12th-grade psychology textbook under “Crimes Against Nature, “along with incest, pedophilia, necrophilia, human trafficking, bestiality and suicide.
Those at war with religion and family are also at war with the Constitution of the United States, which provides for restriction of the civil liberties of criminals.
