Sex Ed for Kindergarteners 'Right Thing to Do,' Says Obama
ABC News ^ | July 18, 2007 | ABC News

Posted on 07/31/2008 4:21:28 PM PDT by Right_Wing_Madman

ABC News' Teddy Davis and Lindsey Ellerson Report: Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., told Planned Parenthood Tuesday that sex education for kindergarteners, as long as it is "age-appropriate," is "the right thing to do."

"I remember Alan Keyes . . . I remember him using this in his campaign against me," Obama said in reference to the conservative firebrand who ran against him for the U.S. Senate in 2004. Sex education for kindergarteners had become an issue in his race against Keyes because of Obama’s work on the issue as chairman of the health committee in the Illinois state Senate.

"'Barack Obama supports teaching sex education to kindergarteners,'" said Obama mimicking Keyes' distinctive style of speech. "Which -- I didn’t know what to tell him (laughter)."

"But it’s the right thing to do," Obama continued, "to provide age-appropriate sex education, science-based sex education in schools."

“sex education for kindergarteners, as long as it is “age-appropriate,”

What, he’s going to allow showing them how to have it with stuffed animals?

Sex education in public schools is the wrong thing to do no matter what age the students are. It is not up to the state to educate our children on matters other the tradional subjects, such as math, history, english, civics(which they don’t want to teach). Sex education is for parents. We need to stop this BS immediately if not sooner.

“But it’s the right thing to do,” Obama continued, “to provide age-appropriate sex education, science-based sex education in schools.”

*Right thing to do*....implies a moral philosophy. I wonder what *moral* philosophy provides the basis for Obama’s choices? I wonder why he would choose to leave a newborn infant to die....and attempt to pass legislation to that effect?

So what sex education exactly is "age-appropriate" to expose kidergarteners to? (Maybe expose isn't the right word, but it seems appropriate at some level.)

Does this mean that storks will start appearing at show and tell sessions?

The “age appropriate” amount of sex education for five years olds is zero, senator. But maybe the Big O would like to “refine” this position, too.

The only way kids there would know the difference between sexes is that the girls aren’t allowed in the boys restroom. That’s how they know they’re girls and not boys. Other than that they know no distinction ....

This is about pushing the sex positive agenda. Get them to accept that there are no moral judgements to be made over any pairings regardless of sex, age, relation, marital status, number, or species of partner(s).

It is about subverting the culture and overriding the morals of the parents “what your parents say is ‘wrong’”.

That is my point, the government has no business educating our children in anything but the basic requirements of education, and this doesn’t include sex. Personally, I think the sooner we get government out of education the better.

This is about social engineering and pushing the politically correct liberal agenda.

There is no dissent. He says he wants it to be “scientifically” based sex ed. Does that mean including unproven claims that homosexuality is “normal”?

Just let the kids be kids for their scant few years of childhood, Obama, and let them have some joyous fun of childhood first, before having to deal with real world adulthood for the rest of their lives. SHEESH !!!

This just proves he isn’t fit to serve. If a 46 year old man believes it is right for schools to force the topic of sex ed to pre-schoolers, he is severely mentally and morally challenged.

You don’t bring this stuff up on your own. You let parents deal with little kids questions. Most kids this young don’t care about it.

The guy is a nutball. A big, freaking, speechless-without-a-teleprompter, pot smoking nutball. I think this proves there is evidence the pot smoking damaged his brain.

Like in Auntie Mame? The little girl fishies run around the classroom laying the eggs, and then . . .

Is that age-appropriate?

My question for Obama: How many black kids did your friends at Planned Parenthood butcher today?

When someone like Obama supports that, fouling the minds of small children seems mild in comparison.

Most people would agree that is the “wrong” thing to do.

In Obama’s world it is “right” to speak to kindergarteners about where babies come from and about inappropriate touching.
And it is “right” to leave survivors of abortions to die without medical assistance.

Check.
Check.

And remember everyone - inflate your tires and take your vehicle in for a tune up.

The messiah has spoken.
