Gay-haters to target primary schools
A scheme to promote sexuality equality in UK primary schools has caused a hot-and-sweaty reaction among homophobic religious groups. The pro-equality group No Outsiders is to introduce children’s stories featuring same-sex love relationships into several primary schools around the country.
Predictably, The Christian Institute is in a lather:
The predictions of those who said the repeal of Section 28 would result in the active promotion of homosexuality in schools are coming true.
The books to be used no more promote homosexuality than other children’s books promote heterosexuality. They merely present it in a way that reflects reality.
But, as ever, reality is exactly what these religious groups have trouble coping with. As Tahir Alam of the Muslim Council of Britain demonstrates:
This is not consistent with Islamic teachings and from our point of view many parents would be concerned.
The Christian pressure group Stephen Green’s Voice (aka Christian Voice) intends to play the most active role in opposing this scheme. Stephen “Dog Shit” Green said:
I am astonished at this project and we are trying to find out where these schools are to empower parents to put pressure on them to remove the books.
Well, he’s already threatened to picket a cancer charity, so primary schools certainly wouldn’t be beneath him.
The intention is to make homosexuality appear normal and these people have no business doing that to other people’s children. It is wicked and amounts to child abuse.
The more you normalise homosexuality, and the more kids see images of homosexual relationships from schoolbooks and authority figures the more kids think any crushes they have on children of the same sex – which is quite normal at 11 years old – are valid.
The three children’s books which will be introduced to selected primary schools are Spacegirl Pukes (Spacegirl is cared for by two women), King and King, and And Tango Makes Three which is based based on the true story of Roy and Silo, Central Park’s gay penguin couple.
