Reader says sex ed won’t protect kids

Dear Editor,

We have killed God. We kicked the Bible out of classrooms. We banned prayer.

In order to be tolerant to all we became intolerant to the one. We are told faith is a private matter, not to be exercized publicly, while people can openly express their sexuality in public.

Kids are told, “you’re born, you live, you die, the end.” Even without God, we still seek meaning. Some try to find it in education, others material goods. Others try to find it in human relationships, thinking sex will bring fulfillment. It does not.

Our kids are told it’s ok to have sex, not knowing some get HIV; some get pregnant; some have abortions; and some have their bodies mutilated in a fashion where the operation can never be reversed, to a lifetime of regret. There is still an emptiness.

Our new sex ed curriculum promises to protect our children. It will not. Our kids are not adults. You are robbing them of their childhood. You can teach them tolerance and about predators without the whole program.

Kids feel rudderless, with no hope for the future and some end up committing suicide. Secularism is built on a house of cards that will never satisfy the longing of the human heart. It is a false hope.

When you reach the top, you ask is that all there is? Until we teach everyone is created in the image of God and precious to Him and until we treat each other that way, society will suffer immensely, individually and collectively.
