Skip to comments.'Little Black Book' teaches kids 'gay' sex

A Massachusetts activist organization today will mark the one-year anniversary of same-sex marriage in the state by discussing the "dark underbelly" of the institution in front of Boston's City Hall.
The Article 8 Alliance" claims the state's schools have become more active in pushing homosexuality with students, pointing to an April 30 event at Brookline High School.
Sponsored by the Gay Lesbian Straight Education Network, the event, said the Article 8 Alliance, featured a "hard-core pornographic homosexual 'how-to' booklet given to hundreds of kids."
"The book was prominently distributed at the first table, right after registration, where everyone would be sure to go," the group states on its website.
The booklet, entitled "The Little Black Book Queer in the 21st Century," contains what the activist group calls "deadly misinformation on health."
Included in the booklet are graphic descriptions of homosexual conduct, including "fisting," along with a photo-spread discussion of condoms and instructions on how to put them on.
Also included is a list of homosexual bars and clubs in the Boston area "for the discerning queerboy." The Article 8 Alliance points out the students attending the event were of middle-school and high-school age.
The booklet mentions abstaining from risky activity, and then states, "But how much fun is that?"
Brian Camenker, director of Article 8 Alliance slammed the pro-homosexual agenda in Massachusetts.
"Contrary to the rosy picture painted in the mainstream media, we've seen an intensification of undemocratic, anti-free-speech activities throughout our state in the schools, in government and in the media," he said in a statement. "Alternative points of view are routinely drowned out by ignoring the message, intimidation, name-calling or lack of proper notification. Even pro-family churches now hesitate to speak out on this moral issue, since it has been politicized by the radical homosexuals and their allies."
Continued Camenker: "Meanwhile, our Legislature and governor continue to support gay clubs in our public schools, which draw our young people into this dangerous and destructive lifestyle," saying he had never seen anything as "bad" as the "Little Black Book."
The associate director of the group, John Haskins, also took aim at Gov. Mitt Romney.
"The one person who could easily have prevented this situation simply by defending the state constitution our Republican governor is getting a pass, even from pro-family conservative media, and has set his sights on the White House," Haskins said. "If he is not exposed as a very, very, very nice man with neither courage nor convictions, he will indeed be a Republican Manchurian Candidate in 2008."
As WorldNetDaily reported, a Massachusetts father who recently protested a pro-homosexual book his 6-year-old son had been given in school spent a night in jail after being arrested by police an incident the activist group mentions as further evidence of a pro-"gay" attitude by officials.
As DomB points out on his blog, two of the 'contributors' toward this booklet are the "Jesuit Urban Center" and Regis College (Denver? the Jebby-run one??)
Another Jesuit contribution to society.
Of course it will spread, as there are always liberal bastions within even conservative states, and the education industry is one of them.
And those moderate-conservatives who hold the strange, 'gay marriage-no', civil unions-yes' position should know that the advance of such materials will be made inevitable if gay marriage OR civil unions is imposed. If homosexual unions are given legal status akin to marriage, yet not the title 'marriage', its effect on the public realm will be the same. Civil unions will be taught in schools as having equal value as marriage, and over time of course that will help break down opposition to giving up the word 'marriage', and then the Left will have a complete and total victory.
What's the link for his blog? If someone at Regis is involved, I definitely will have to write some letters. Dr. Edwin Feulner, president of the conservative Heritage Foundation is on the board of trustees, and Fr. Thomas B. Curran, Associate Vice President, University Relations, was president of the high school I went to before going to Regis. In fact, I just ran into him yesterday at Union Station in DC.
Man, that is disturbing. Must be criminal to expose kids to that sort of obscene material.
Agreed to both of your points. However, a few points in reply to clarify:
1. The situation in public schools, on average, is worsening. Being a product of the public schools is no indication of what conditions exist now - even in the school you may have attended.
2. The fact that the book is in public schools at all demonstrates a severe lack of judgement and, to some degree, a conspiracy. Yes, individual families might be off the beam, but their effect will be limited to one family. When public schools foist such rot, the impact is much, much worse.
3. There will be NO real reform in public schools until they are bankrupt and their political power is broken. This will not occur with compliance and attendance.
4. Individual families may fight a rear guard action against the public schools systems but, on average, those energies would be more productively spent with their own children. With co-ops, a homeschooled child is not deprived, academically or socially, in any way - quite the opposite.
They are C.I.N.O.'s. (Catholics-in-name-only).
Then we are a nation of child-abusers by proxy, for we allowed our government to alter and finance the curriculum with tax dollars.
So we're all complicit.
I have no solution, but I don't believe it can be solved at the ballot box.
Well-spoken. I agree.
Aye, there's the rub. It's **SO OUTRAGEOUS** that, when we try to warn people about it, they often just don't believe us! I'm totally convinced that the overwhelming majority would be emphatically on our side if they knew it was true -- but, apparently most people dismiss it as some wild paranoid exaggeration. *sigh* When will they wake up?
Speaking as a scientist - most scientists are against this sort of thing.
Hostility to science (real science, that is) is the fast track to a new dark age.
In case you haven't noticed, this ain't the public school we went to, and it ain't getting any better!
Not true. As a group, true, as individuals, I disagree.
I have no solution, but I don't believe it can be solved at the ballot box.
The solution is called private or home schooling. As for fixing the public schools, that is a much bigger problem to solve.
For us poor furriners who keep forgetting how the US ed. system works, how old are the children who have had this filth foisted on them?
The link stated that the event attendees were middle school aged (11 years old) and up.
It's time to clean house!
The article8 website had a copy of the booklet right on their webpage!
So....so these nice people were just using "tolerance" as a way to recruit 7th to 12th grade kids into trying their lifestyle?.....SHOCKED!!!! SHOCKED I am that the gerbil killers would stoop so low, SHOCKED! (sarcasm off)
Please dont lump all of Massachusettes Catholics into one category.
How tragic. I was depressed to the point of being suicidal when I was a teenager, and I blame a lot of it on godless public schooling. (Don't ever call it "education.") Government schools do incalculable damage to our society. Sadly, some Catholic schools don't seem to be much better these days, but at least as institutions they're not founded on a raft of errors.
It's him or Guiliani.
Hopefully the heartland won't be fooled. I'm praying for Jeb or Rick Santorum. Any other good candidates out there?
Who said I was? I know there are good Catholics in the Northeast. Sadly, however, they are a minority.
Parents in Brookline and Newton know what's going on, and they approve. I know, I used to live in a neighboring town, and attended a few school committee meetings when these issues were coming to the fore, about 15 years ago. It was like something out of a Frank Peretti novel. If the school committee and parents could have, they would have tarred and feathered the parents critical of the pornographic sex ed curriculum.
Fortunately, it appears to be easily reversible.
Is that the tabernacle at the rear center? And do they use it? Their website is almost entirely mum about their beautiful building, they just name the two architects and give the date, and that's about it.
Of course. How else will children learn how to "consumate" their homosexual "marriages"? Their ignorant religious parents certainly won't teach them.
Well, yes. That was really the point of my post. Is it possible?
"Sadly, some Catholic schools don't seem to be much better these days, but at least as institutions they're not founded on a raft of errors."
In the UK the Catholic schools are actually worse than the state schools when it comes to dealing with these issues. Many Catholic teachers refuse to teach in the Catholic sector because it is too liberal.
The laws on child abuse should be extended to subjecting children to this kind of pornography. If there is no link between homosexuality and paedophilia, why are the queers intent on getting this material into the hands of children?
In other words, and perhaps more simple words, this is exactly what we proclaimed at Easter. Because of Gods raising of Jesus, the whole world is now divinized. All creation is redeemed. You and I and all creation are now in God. That is an astounding theological emphasis. But it is not the only emphasis the church has entertained over the centuries. Maybe thats why I almost missed it. It is not what I was taught as a kid.
In the alternative version, the world is inherently corrupt, evil, and the enemy. In this interpretation, the church is the only bright spot on the horizon of an otherwise bleak and antagonistic universe. We are in mortal danger and must stand over against them and itit meaning that worldly, wildly passionate, wickedly disordered world out there beyond the church. Bad out there; good only in here. Its we against them.
And this interpretation is still with us, alive and well, in todays church. It is still preached a lot. And it was very much in evidence just two weeks ago when the then Cardinal Ratzinger preached to his brother Cardinals in the moments before the recent conclave. He spoke of the church as a little boat of Christian thought tossed around on waves of extreme modern tendencies. And he spoke of the world as a dictatorship of relativism which does not recognize anything as for certain.... It was all reminiscent for me of another time and place, when one of his illustrious predecessors, the more-than-somewhat reactionary Pius IX actually condemned all modern progress in the Syllabus of Errors published in the late 19th century. This even included the churchs condemnation of electricity as evil! No, I am not kidding! The world cannot be trusted.
If this is true, this has got to be a completely isolated incident. It's very simple, folks, if these books are available in public school libraries, then it's the responsibility of the parents to prevent their kids from reading this garbage. If teachers assign this reading to students, again, it's up to the parents to intervene and to overrule the teachers. I would have no problem doing it...what are they going to do about it?
For that to happen, pornography would have to be considered as something intrinsically evil. It no longer is, as far as I can tell. So there exists no logical basis for criminalizing its distribution to children.
Moreover, homosexual "marriage" is now recognized in law. So there's certainly no legal basis for criminalizing the teaching of homosexual "marriage" "consummation."
A father in Lexington agrees with you but unfortunately he spent a night in jail for it.
Any Governor who would or even could allow this filth to be foisted on kids in public schools, does not desrve to run for, nevermind be, President.
I saw the book at the Article 8 press conference at noon today. Truly disgusting. Next time someone tells me to be tolerant, I will punch their lights out.
I feel sick. "Marketed" to kids no less. Totally disgusting.
Luke 17:28 "It was the same as happened in the days of Lot: they were eating, they were drinking, they were buying, they were selling, they were planting, they were building;
Luke 17:29 but on the day that Lot went out from Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all.
Luke 17:30 "It will be just the same on the day that the Son of Man is revealed.
However...God will not be mocked.
Of course it is possible. Probable, now that's a different question!
Yeah, but what I was really getting at is that right now, I think most public schools in most areas don't have such blatantly pro-gay propoganda because they know it wouldn't be tolerated by the community they serve (at least I hope this is the case).
But if the semantically-less threatening 'civil unions' is imposed instead of gay marriage -- as perhaps a way of the Courts to give the Left a substantive victory by giving away the institution of marriage, while avoiding inflaming the public by not using the word 'marriage' -- then there will be an officially, legally, state sponsored and recognized endorsement of homosexual relationships. Then it will be much easier to get these types of offensive materials into the classroom regardless of what the community feels, because afterall, they'd just be reflecting the law.
How could we say, for example, not to place homosexual civil unions right along side traditional marriage in the social studies textbooks if the law does just that? If a community did insist that such things not be taught in the classroom, then some judge would probably issue an order compelling them to anyway.
It just makes no sense to me to support oppose gay marriage, but support civil unions.
