One person can make a difference, President John F. Kennedy said, and thanks to Hawaii State Rep. Bob McDermott (R) more people might try. The conservative dad took on the states Education Department and scored a partial victory. Since December, Rep. McDermott has been a campaign of one, working to roll back Hawaiis explosive sex ed curriculum which is so explicit it would make most adults blush. Homosexuality gets the states support, as well as other controversial practices that parents should reserve the right to explain to their kids themselves. bob mcdermott hawaii
I can assure you my 11-year-old girl knows nothing about anal sex, and one of the reasons is because shes not exposed to Pono Choices I am a little uncomfortable saying [that], but this is what your children, your [sixth grade] children, are being taught, the state rep said. To me, this is outrageous. Six months and an 18-page critique later, the agency finally budged, announcing that it would only teach the course to middle schoolers whose parents opt in, meaning that children are all exempted until their families say otherwise.
Not surprisingly, the Left (whose agenda is built on sexual liberalism) is howling that asking moms and dads permission is somehow gutting the program. If only McDermott and others were so lucky. For the Hawaii representative and countless parents, however, the news was a major relief. Our hats go off to Bob McDermott for showing the kind of leadership too many elected officials lack!

To conservatives, sex-ed is supposed to explain how babies are made and how STDs are transmitted and how to avoid both of those.
To liberals, sex-ed is supposed to actually be a technical school a la woodshop, where children as young as elementary students are taught about every single possible different type of sex in which people have engaged! They are to be encouraged to try as many as they like and don’t worry about the two above items because we have abortion on demand and medicine to treat most of the STDs! I bet most liberals wouldn’t mind a little “hands-on” sessions or “lab” courses for the students as well!
What the hell happened to America?!? Where are the parents of these children and why in the hell aren’t they up in arms?!?
When my kids got to that age and class requirement, parents were invited to the school to watch the film and presentation and then could opt-in. That is how is SHOULD BE!
Hawaii calls this program Pono choices. I wonder how many read this as porno choices instead. What a name to pick.......
It's their love affair with the Clintons. They are true believers and demand HRC!
Had ENOUGH Yet ?
If asking parents' permission is "gutting the program," then the program sucks. Period. It can't be gutted fast enough, if you ask me.
