Even Catholic schools must teach sex ed to six-year-olds: McGuinty (Ontario, Canada)
Yahoo! ^ | 4/21/2010 | Maria Babbage

Posted on 04/22/2010 10:45:03 AM PDT by Rutles4Ever

TORONTO - Ontario's Catholic schools can't opt out of a revamped sex ed curriculum even if it goes against their religious beliefs to teach kids about masturbation and homosexuality, Premier Dalton McGuinty said Wednesday.

Several conservative and religious groups claim the changes coming this fall will corrupt young minds with "explicit" topics like anal sex. But Ontario's Catholic premier made it clear that all public schools must teach the lessons that will start as early as age six.

The first changes to Ontario's curriculum in a dozen years will see students learning about masturbation in Grade 6 and oral and anal sex at age 12.

Opponents who are mounting a campaign to get rid of the program have described the curriculum as "evil" and "bordering on criminal." They say teaching eight-year-olds about gender identity and same-sex marriage is inappropriate and should be left up to parents.

But McGuinty - whose wife is a Catholic school teacher - said it's a responsible way to teach kids about sex in an age where it's easy to access information, whether it's from their friends or the Internet. He argues that by including it in the curriculum, the government has some control over the information and can present it in an appropriate way.

Under the changes that were quietly released in January, Grade 1 kids will be taught to identify genitalia - among other body parts - using the correct word, such as penis, vagina and testicle. The 1998 curriculum made no mention of genitalia.

Grade 3 lessons about the differences that make each person unique will now also include discussion about same-sex families and students with special needs to "reflect the government commitment to equity and inclusive education," according to provincial officials.

This is repulsive. Conservatives must speak out. In God’s eyes, if we don’t, we are accomplices.

And why is this so DAMN important?

In first grade, the most important thing to me was my shiny new, metal Wagon Train lunch box complete with pictorial thermos.

“We do expect that schools will work with parents, and if parents would say that there is part of the curriculum that they do not want their child to receive, then they have the right to make that choice and work with the classroom teacher to accommodate that,” she said.

If anyone thinks government funded vouchers were the answer, this is where it leads.

I expect no violent revolt from parents, because people are sheep.

"...and oral and anal sex at age 12."

As homosexuality is "normed" and the new "normal" can't engage in normal sexual intercourse, they must be taught positions that they can enjoy too.

Reproductive education is no more about hormones, hygiene, and having babies. Now it is about sexual positions and cleaning up your sex toys properly after bloodying them through S&M.

“Then they’re government funds go dry I guess.”

Constitutionally they can’t do that, and the Catholic schools cannot remove themselves without an amendment to the constitution. I know thi is different from how the US works, but that’s the case in Ontario.

It was part of the compromise in Canada that the minority school received public funding, the protestant schools eventually became the public school system, and Quebec secularised theirs some time ago.

The issue isn’t vouchers, but more of a freedom of religion issue. That being said, there are private Catholic schools that operate without government funding in Ontario.

It isn’t just schools preaching this to kids. It is hospitals too. Ever look online at the educational sites they offer on the tax dollar?

All of the argument is being lobbied with our own money. Opposition is privately funded and it is a losing battle.

“expect that schools” - yeah, how long will that last and believe me, even having to deal with lesbian principals who hate real boys here in the states, is not fun and unbearably stressful for the children.

I may be wrong, but I don’t believe the Catholic schools my kids attended, received any government funds, nor do we get a tax break.

Canada may be different (?).

Canada apparently pays for whatever school the kids go to.

Its an argument against vouchers if you ask me.

From what I understand, this campaign was initiated/funded by the Trojan condom company.

Thanks for the ping PAIC.

BTW, the latest news I read in the T. Star, was that McGuinty was going to wait before introducing this. If true, that’s good news.

Well, in my area we would be armed sheep and the ammo stores would do a good business afterward replenishing supplies. Oh I forgot, even rifles are hard to come by in Ontario.

I’m reading a book now about the suppression of Catholicism by the Elizabethian regime in the 16th and 17th century. Scary stuff. Largely forgotten.

Is there really any legitimate argument anymore against the fact that homosexuals want to corrupt our kids?

April 22, 2010

Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty is sending a controversial sex education curriculum back to the drawing board.

In London Thursday, McGuinty said the document needs more input from parents.

The curriculum called for students in Grade 1 to begin learning the proper terms for sexual body parts and for Grade 3 students to learn about same sex families and sexual orientation.

Christian family values groups were threatening to pull their kids out of class and the Catholic School Boards were refusing to introduce it as written.<>

Within hours, McGuinty was reversing course on the curriculum.

They tried to tell me my kids had to learn this in the US(’Catholic school’)also. I told them to go to hell and put my kids in the library for the hour once a week. Told the pricipal he was ‘nuts’ and he wasn’t going to teach my kids porno. I told him that teaching them the Rosary might be a better idea. They told me that “kids need to know this these days”. Yeah right.
