On the final Thursday and Friday of September, I was honored to stand with two outstanding men in Decatur and Shelbyville. We were there to fight for decency and virtue. At the meetings presented by Parents for Sensible Sex Education we discussed why “comprehensive” sex education means a loss of parental rights.
At both events I was joined by Scott Phelps from the Abstinence & Marriage Education Partnership and Robert Gilligan, Executive Director of the Catholic Conference of Illinois stood with us in Decatur. These leaders offered their perspectives on the recently passed law which forces obscene sexual ideas on the school children of Illinois. Additionally, I want to thank State Senator Chapin Rose (R-Champaign) and State Representative Brad Halbrook (R-Effingham) for encouraging us in this effort.
In our media advisory announcing the events I observed regarding the law which becomes effective in January, “Children as young as eleven years old will be required to define sexual orientation using so-called ‘correct’ terminology, such as ‘heterosexual, gay, and lesbian.’ Masturbation would be taught as normal and that everyone does it, with step-by-step instruction. Not just the biology of sexual reproduction would be presented, but explicit details of sexual intercourse. Slightly older children would be ‘educated’ on how to use condoms, obtain contraceptives or even an abortion without parental consent or knowledge, and would be encouraged to experiment with ‘alternative’ sexual behaviors.”
A television news broadcast covered one of the meetings.
