Colorado Dems Push LGBT Sex-Ed Requirements

Indoctrination into leftist sexual ethics will be the only perspective allowed in public schools.

Following hours of heated debate and public testimony, Democrats on a Colorado House committee this week approved HB19-1032, which, if passed by the General Assembly, would require the state’s public school sex-education curriculum to include instructions on LGBT relationships. The legislation not only adds these requirements but, more significantly, it “prohibits instruction from explicitly or implicitly teaching or endorsing religious ideology or sectarian tenets or doctrines, using shame-based or stigmatizing language or instructional tools, employing gender norms or gender stereotypes, or excluding the relational or sexual experiences of lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender individuals.” In other words, the bill forbids any instruction on sexuality that doesn’t conform to the Left’s “new morality” dogma.

A number of concerned parents showed up at the committee meeting and voiced their objections. One father of four stated, “If you’re for House Bill 1032, then you’re for exposing nine-year-olds to sexually explicit techniques. We don’t want to expose our children to this kind of forced sexual education.”

Stephanie Curry of Family Policy Alliance noted, “It tells schools you can teach it our way or not teach it at all. I think what is most upsetting is parents do not have a choice.” And that’s precisely the direction that Democrats have been moving — where the state controls what children learn, not their parents. With this type of leftist authoritarianism being wielded over public education, is it any wonder that more parents than ever are either homeschooling or sending their children to private schools?
