A bill introduced in the Iowa House would expand what’s required to be taught in schools to include “age-appropriate”, comprehensive sex education beginning in kindergarten. The legislation is being pushed by Mary Mascher, a Democrat from Iowa City, who is a longtime educator.
She says kids need more information than they get in schools where abstinence only is taught. “We need to give kids good information. We need to give kids the ability, the skill set to be able to make a good choice and good choices in their lives,” Mascher says. Mascher says parents would have the option to pull their children from the sexuality classes.
But the proposal still raises concerns among some private school administrators. The executive director of the Iowa Catholic Conference, Tom Chapman, says the idea violates the moral beliefs of many parents. “We think that the sexuality education is a job for parents, and we’d certainly would like to keep it that way. And this bill would require all Catholic schools to teach comprehensive sex education as defined by the state board of education, so we would have some concern about what they might approve as the curriculum,” Chapman said.
A couple points here.... first -- there is NO "age appropriate" sex education for a child in kindergarten! In kindergarten children shouldn't even be interested in the "you show me yours & I'll show you mine" game that kids play. In kindergarten the only thing kids should be worried about is having fun, learning basic skills and what time the "Wiggles" are on TV.
Second and most important... it is the parents job & up to the parents when they decide to teach their little Johnny & Susie's that the stork really doesn't bring babies.
My last argument would be.... the left is always screaming about separation of Church & State, so why would this not apply to Catholic schools? The answer is because in this case it goes against their agenda of trying to indoctrinate our children into their brown-shirted, goose-stepping, leftist, progressive and degenerate ways!
