Do you think it sounds sensible that sex education in UK schools “.. should be accurate and balanced”, that the subject should be “taught in a way that is appropriate to the ages of the pupils concerned and to their religious and cultural backgrounds and reflects a range of religious, cultural and other perspectives”, that it should “be taught in a way that endeavours to promote equality, encourages acceptance of diversity and emphasises the importance of both rights and responsibilities”?
Does that sound reasonable to you? Is that a screamingly immoral or rabidly atheist agenda?
No? Might it have the teeniest glimmer of common sense in it…? Perhaps…?
You fool! You weak-minded lapdog of Lucifer! It’s an outrageously godless manifesto of sin! It’s a one-way path to hell and damnation! It’s designed solely to drive innocent children off the rails and have them all pregnant by the time they’re 15!
Personally, I think it sounds fine, but religious groups in the UK (mainly a big Christian one beginning with “C” operating from a very swanky HQ in Italy…) have kicked up such a howl of protest that the government have been forced to exempt so-called faith schools from this particular bit of blatantly Satanic doctrine.
God forbid (if you’ll excuse the pun) that sex education should be accurate and balanced, taught in a way that is appropriate to the ages of the pupils concerned and their religious and cultural backgrounds; that it should reflect a range of religious, cultural and other perspectives and be taught in a way that endeavours to promote equality, encourage acceptance of diversity and emphasise the importance of both rights and responsibilities.
I mean, who wouldn’t want their children to be taught lies and nonsense by scary dogmatic lunatics in dresses who’ve never actually had a sexual relationship, and whose textbook is a 2000-year old mishmash of made-up contradictory nonsense?
I’m going to demand that Millie and AmberG be taught maths by innumerate hunchbacks using nothing but the works of Aristotle and an abacus.
