Skip to comments.Judge: Teaching Erotic Sex and that Homosexuality is Inborn to 8th and 10th Graders is OK

ANN ARBOR, MI – Maryland Circuit Court Judge William J. Rowan, III, ruled last week that it is permissible to teach 8th and 10th grade Montgomery County public school students how to use condoms during anal and oral sex, as well as that homosexuality is inborn, even though in 2007 Maryland’s highest appellate court ruled there is no scientific basis for such a conclusion.
The controversial new curriculum was adopted as a result of pressure by homosexual advocacy groups.
That sexual orientation is innate, namely, homosexuals are ‘born that way,’ is a theory that has been rejected by courts in several states including Maryland. Maryland’s highest appellate court issued an opinion in a 2007 civil union case, holding that the proposition that homosexuality is innate is not supported by credible evidence. In fact, not one U.S. court presented with the issue has found homosexuality to be an innate characteristic.
The Thomas More Law Center, a national public interest law firm based in Ann Arbor, Michigan, which represents Citizens for a Responsible Curriculum, the Family Leader Network, and the Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays had asked the Judge Rowan to overturn a Maryland Board of Education ruling that approves of public schools in Montgomery County, Maryland to teaching 8th and 10th graders that homosexuals are born that way, and how to use condoms during anal and oral sex.
274 Montgomery area doctors signed a petition objecting to the curriculum which promotes the notion that the use of condoms prevents disease in anal intercourse.
Richard Thompson, President and Chief Counsel of the Thomas More Law Center commented, “Judge Rowan’s ruling gives a green light to homosexual groups throughout Maryland to pressure school boards to adopt similar policies. We will be meeting with our clients next week regarding an appeal.”
Montgomery educators defended their new sex curriculum that promotes anal sex, homosexuality, bisexuality and transvestitism despite strong opposition from several pro family groups.
Brandon Bolling, the Thomas More Law Center attorney who argued the case, asked Judge Rowan to either declare the curriculum illegal or send it back to the state board of education for another review. “Maryland law says that you have to teach something that is factually accurate,” said Bolling. “They are not doing that, therefore it is illegal.”

Let’s just require that all kids take courses in S&M, beastiality, cross-dressing, and fetishes and be done with it.
Did I miss something or did this article leave out the most important part of the ruling?
IT IS NOT REQUIRED THAT THE SCHOOL NOTIFY THE PARENTS THAT THIS INFORMATION WILL BE TAUGHT IN ORDER TO ALLOW THEM TO OPT OUT.
However, don't even THINK about talking about God.
I’ll bet the judge’s hard-drive has something interesting stuff on it.
Just so long as we keep the 10 Commandments and the idea of a Creator out of the schools, everything will be fine. (sarcasm off)
A widely attended session of “rimming” was held in the judge’s quarters after the ruling. /sarcasm
Thank you for posting that information!!!
If homosexuality can be genetically predetermined what will the gay advocates stance then be on abortion?
We don’t even teach this garbage in Socialist Sweden. Sure, they’ll have some embarrased home-ec teacher showing us how to put on a condom when we’re in 11th or 12th grade (accompanied by much snickering and giggling) along with a “this is how babies are made” lecture by a stuttering biology teacher.
Of course, there is the obvious “there is nothing wrong with beeing homosexual” teaching which I think most people have no problem agreeing to, but it’s not as intrusive and “preaching” (for lack of better word) that I get the impression it is in US public schools. For an observer, it seems that public schools in the US tries to recruit kids to become gays, rather than trying to teach kids to be tolerant and understanding towards eachother.
And the courts' expertise in this area is ...???
We're all in the Twilight Zone now.
Is this judge nuts or what? Why don’t the parents just yank their kids out and yank him off the bench.

That statement is not accurate. The court found that the theory of an immutable characteristic is not generally accepted:
* In the absence of some generally accepted scientific conclusion identifying homosexuality as an immutable characteristic
* We note only that there does not appear to be a consensus yet among experts as to the origin of an individual’s sexual orientation.
So right now, it’s a theory.
Sex Positive teaching is a global agenda. It has been for over 50 years.
Kinsey, Reich, and the feminists push to end all moral judgements over sexual pairings regardless of the sex, age, relation, marital status, number or species of partner(s). They see sex as a birthright and that everyone at every age should be sexually active.
Abstinence from heterosexual activity like abstinence from acting on homosexual desires is considered “unhealthy” because it is a supression of sexual desires.
There is as much of this going on in Europe as there is in America. American conservatives are called “puritanical” by Europeans. I’m not casting you in the same category, I was just wondering what term they use to brand those who still believe in morals in Europe?
The Sex Positive Agenda has been institutionalized which means that we fund it with our tax dollars even when we politically oppose it. The shadow government pushes the agenda from within health care and education institutions even when the political leadership hems and haws about the effectiveness of teaching “abstinence only”.
When homosexuality was legalized in every state in America, it was accomplished through the courts, not the legislature. When abortion was legalized in every state in America, it was accomplished through the courts, not the legislature. When slavery was abolished it required a constitutional amendment.
