I REALLY was looking for the word “satire” here somewhere. I mean, ten, fifteen years ago this would have been satire. And to come from the confused and ignorant mind of Elders, no less.

That was either a very big condom or a very small veranda.

When will the modern recently activated human be allowed to function as a CHILD without evil government organizers influence. Who are these perverts in control that insist on getting their rocks off about children knowing how to have sex. They disgust me.

The only sex-ed that kindergartners need is enough knowledge to tell their parents or teachers if someone touches them in the bathing suit area.

They need no knowledge of cucumbers and condoms untill much much later.

Hmmm ... this bears a striking resemblance to that *religious* group, Nuns For Choice. In other words, a bunch of people who support killing in the womb trying to candy-coat it with the religious moniker.

No surprise they would have this idiot speaking to them, let alone giving her a standing ovation, really.

Exactly.

They knew what this dope believed before they issued an invitation.

They're as lost as she is.

From their site:

Is the Fetus a Person? The Bible's View by Dr. Roy Bowen Ward In the media as well as in countless churches, Americans are being told that the Bible condemns abortion. This invocation of the Bible tends to simplify a very complex issue. Before embarking on a crusade under the banner of God's will according to the Bible, one ought to know just what the Bible does and does not say about God's will in the matter. One thing the Bible does not say is, "Thou shalt not abort."

By this logic I can copulate with fruits and vegetibles since the Bible doesn't specifically say I shouldn't.

“Sex Ed” to Elders means teaching 5 year olds to masterbate. She was basically fired for saying that....by none other than the Sinkmeister himself. Slick Willie. Billy-Jeff. The head Clintonista. Sorry...guess I was longing for the good old days when we merely had a reprobate as POTUS, and not an outright facsist.

Reverend Carlton W. Veazey is a minister in the National Baptist Convention, U.S.A., and the President of the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice (RCRC).[1] Veazey founded RCRC's National Black Church Initiative. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carlton_W._Veazey

Origin:


In 1929, 10 years before Sanger created the Negro Project, the ABCL laid the groundwork for a clinic in Harlem, a largely black section of New York City. It was the dawn of the Great Depression, and for blacks that meant double the misery. Blacks faced harsher conditions of desperation and privation because of widespread racial prejudice and discrimination. From the ABCL's perspective, Harlem was the ideal place for this “experimental clinic,” which officially opened on November 21, 1930. Many blacks looked to escape their adverse circumstances and therefore did not recognize the eugenic undercurrent of the clinic. The clinic relied on the generosity of private foundations to remain in business.18 In addition to being thought of as “inferior” and disproportionately represented in the underclass, according to the clinic's own files used to justify its “work,” blacks in Harlem: were segregated in an over-populated area (224,760 of 330,000 of greater New York's black population lived in Harlem during the late 1920s and 1930s); comprised 12 percent of New York City's population, but accounted for 18.4 percent of New York City's unemployment; had an infant mortality rate of 101 per 1000 births, compared to 56 among whites; had a death rate from tuberculosis—237 per 100,000—that was highest in central Harlem, out of all of New York City.19 Although the clinic served whites as well as blacks, it “was established for the benefit of the colored people.” Sanger wrote this in a letter to Dr. W. E. Burghardt DuBois,20 one of the day's most influential blacks. A sociologist and author, he helped found the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) in 1909 to improve the living conditions of black Americans. That blacks endured extreme prejudice and discrimination, which contributed greatly to their plight, seemed to further justify restricting their numbers. Many believed the solution lay in reducing reproduction. Sanger suggested the answer to poverty and degradation lay in smaller numbers of blacks. She convinced black civic groups in Harlem of the “benefits” of birth control, under the cloak of “better health” (i.e., reduction of maternal and infant death; child spacing) and “family planning.” So with their cooperation, and the endorsement of The Amsterdam News (a prominent black newspaper), Sanger established the Harlem branch of the Birth Control Clinical Research Bureau.21 The ABCL told the community birth control was the answer to their predicament. Sanger shrewdly used the influence of prominent blacks to reach the masses with this message. She invited DuBois and a host of Harlem's leading blacks, including physicians, social workers, ministers and journalists, to form an advisory council to help direct the clinic “so that our work in birth control will be a constructive force in the community.”22 She knew the importance of having black professionals on the advisory board and in the clinic; she knew blacks would instinctively suspect whites of wanting to decrease their numbers. She would later use this knowledge to implement the Negro Project. Sanger convinced the community so well that Harlem's largest black church, the Abyssinian Baptist Church, held a mass meeting featuring Sanger as the speaker.23 But that event received criticism. At least one “very prominent minister of a denomination other than Baptist” spoke out against Sanger. Dr. Adam Clayton Powell Sr., pastor of Abyssinian Baptist, “received adverse criticism” from the (unnamed) minister who was “surprised that he'd allow that awful woman in his church.”24 Grace Congregational Church hosted a debate on birth control. Proponents argued birth control was necessary to regulate births in proportion to the family's income; spacing births would help mothers recover physically and fathers financially; physically strong and mentally sound babies would result; and incidences of communicable diseases would decrease. Opponents contended that as a minority group blacks needed to increase rather than decrease and that they needed an equal distribution of wealth to improve their status. In the end, the debate judges decided the proponents were more persuasive: Birth control would improve the status of blacks.25 Still, there were others who equated birth control with abortion and therefore considered it immoral. Eventually, the Urban League took control of the clinic,26 an indication the black community had become ensnared in Sanger's labyrinth. http://www.cwfa.org/articles/1466/CWA/life/index.htm

That’s for sure. I’ve been waiting for Zero to offer Elders a position in his administration along with all the other Klinton retreads.
