SIECUS Is Morally Molesting Your Children!!


 

Contender Ministries


 

If you have a child attending public school, he or she may be studying sex education curriculum developed by an organization known as SIECUS (Sexuality Information and Education Council of the United States).  SIECUS curriculum promotes to children the ideas that homosexuality, bisexuality, and transsexuality are normal and healthy lifestyles, and that abortion is a convenient and acceptable method of birth control.  Moreover, they are teaching your children that those who disagree with these views – even on religious grounds – are narrow-minded bigots on the fringe of society.  They encourage children to shun the values of their parents if those values contradict those held by SIECUS.  This organization is also working internationally to adapt their sex education guidelines for use in other countries.

ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOW

SIECUS is a 38-year-old nonprofit organization whose sex education guidelines have been endorsed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for use in public schools.  Their sex education does not just target children who have reached puberty, but rather is targeted towards children as young as five years of age!

SIECUS is also pro-pornography.  On their website, they proclaim, “When sensitively used in a manner appropriate to the viewer's age and developmental level, sexually explicit visual, printed, or on-line materials can be valuable educational or personal aids…contributing to a wholesome concept of sexuality.”  They also state, “Adults should have the right of access to sexually explicit materials for personal use. Legislative and judicial efforts to prevent the production or distribution of sexually explicit materials endanger constitutionally guaranteed freedoms of speech and press and could be employed to restrict the appropriate professional use of such materials by sexuality educators, therapists, and researchers.”  These are points of view that they share with your teenager at school – pornography is wonderful!

A look at the organizations they link to on their website can provide a revealing look at what their views are:

  • California Abortion & Reproductive Rights League (CARAL)
  • Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD)
  • Human Rights Campaign (pro-homosexual, pro-transsexual)
  • National Gay and Lesbian Task Force
  • Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG)
  • Planned Parenthood (abortion provider)
  • People for the American Way (“proud to stand up to the religious right”)
  • ACLU
  • GenderTalk
  • Intersex Society of North America
  • National Transgender Advocacy Coalition
  • Renaissance Transgender Association
  • American Nudist Research Library
  • Magnus Hirschfield Archive for Sexology
  • Canadian Lesbian and Gay Archives
  • Human Sexuality Collection
  • The Kinsey Institute (library of erotica, past supporter of pedophilia)
  • ONE Institute Gay and Lesbian Archives
  • Bisexual Resource Center
  • Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network (GLSEN) - "fighting to end anti-gay bias in K-12 schools"

SIECUS sex education guidelines provide four levels of information for four different age groups.  You can click on the links below to find samples of what they encourage teachers to share with each age group.  SIECUS also has a publication entitled Right From The Start, which provides guidelines on training preschoolers on sexuality issues such as appropriate masturbation and genital touching with other preschoolers!  As you can see, some of the information is objectionable, and is geared towards undermining your right to instill your morals and values in your children.  If you hold to Judeo-Christian morals, and believe in what the Bible says regarding sexuality, they will encourage your child to reject your values.

 

SIECUS recognizes that the biggest threat to their agenda comes from what they would call the “religious right.”  In truth, what they need to fear is any parent who holds to God’s biblical commands on the proper enjoyment of his gift of sex. 

In an attempt to ward off attacks from the Christian community and the pro-moral majority (55% of American adults oppose homosexual marriage, according to a CBS News/New York Times Poll in July 2003), SIECUS formed the Religious Institute on Sexual Morality, Justice, and Healing, an organization of liberal theologians who champion homosexuality and abortion under the veil of religious tolerance.  The Institute drafted the Religious Declaration on Sexual Morality, Justice, and Healing, which has been endorsed by over 2200 theologically liberal signatories.  The declaration calls for the following: 

  • Theological reflection that integrates the wisdom of excluded, often silenced peoples, and insights about sexuality from medicine, social science, the arts and humanities.
  • Full inclusion of women and sexual minorities [homosexuals, bisexuals, transsexuals] in congregational life, including their ordination and the blessing of same sex unions.
  • Sexuality counseling and education throughout the lifespan from trained religious leaders.
  • Support for those who challenge sexual oppression [biblically sound worldview] and who work for justice within their congregations and denomination.
  • Lifelong, age appropriate sexuality education in schools, seminaries, and community settings.
  • A faith-based commitment to sexual and reproductive rights, including access to voluntary contraception, abortion, and HIV/STD prevention and treatment.

Former SIECUS President Debra W. Haffner wrote an article entitled, “The Really Good News: What the Bible Says About Sex.”  The article, replete with misinterpretations, omissions, and outright heresy, is presented to children and parents who express trepidation over SIECUS’s sex education program due to religious beliefs.  At one point, Haffner writes, “I now believe that a major function of Bible stories is to teach sexuality education…” While it is true that the Bible does provide information on God’s plan for sex, Haffner’s conclusions are anything but biblical.  Early in the article, she maligns those who view the Bible as it is written, “There is no question that certain church traditions have provided justification for sexual oppression. From the writings of Paul to those of Augustine and Aquinas--and through the current work of the Christian Coalition--parts of the Christian church have attempted to control, define, and limit sexual expression. In fact, it is clear that the mind/body dualism that characterizes much of Christian thought is the lens through which both the Bible and church traditions are used to limit people's experience of their sexuality and, indeed, to promote systematic oppression of sexuality.  However, these same theological tools can help demonstrate a revised sexual theology.”  A “revised sexual theology”?!  Christians must realize that God’s laws were not laid down to be revised as social climates change!  God’s laws are immutable, and Haffner is blasphemous in her contention that it is time to revise what God has said. 

Haffner opines, “Sodom and Gomorrah is not a story against consensual same gender sexual relations. Rather, the sin is about inhospitality and gang rape.”  Jude 1:7 recounts that Sodom and Gomorrah had been destroyed for their “perversion” (NIV) and going after “strange flesh” (KJV, NASB).  These references indicate that the act of violence (rape) is not what caused the judgment of Sodom, and it wasn’t its “inhospitality.”  It was the fact that the men of Sodom sought homosexual encounters.  Romans 1:26-27 gives additional clarity to the sin of homosexuality.  1 Timothy 1:10 condemns homosexuals as well as practitioners of other sins.  Haffner has little to say regarding the New Testament verses, other than to contrast that four New Testament verses pale in comparison to ten Levitical prohibitions against sex with a woman during menses, and seventeen verses on how to make a grain offering.  In other words, Haffner feels that the limited number of New Testament verses condemning homosexuality indicate that it wasn’t that big of a deal.  She further conjectures that the real sin these verses address is prostitution and the pagan practices of the cults that happened to engage in homosexuality.  Truthfully, her “logic” is as convoluted as a junkyard in a tornado. 

The rest of her article goes on to address issues that most Bible-believing Christians would also agree with – namely, that adultery is wrong, and that sex is a gift from God that is to be enjoyed.  Where she falls short though, is in the understanding that God created sex to be enjoyed, but only within the guidelines he sets forth!  The God-given guidelines for sexuality are simple: sex is to be an activity between a consenting man and a consenting woman who are married to each other.  A listing of the scripture references that support that would take up a paragraph itself, and a study of the Bible with the help of a concordance will lead any thinking person to the same conclusions.  God’s guidelines rule out homosexuality, bisexuality, adultery, and rape.  In Matthew 5:28, Jesus says, “But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart.”  This verse rules out pornography as a “valuable educational or personal aid.” 

Children as young as five years of age are being morally molested by SIECUS and local schools, often without the knowledge of the parents.  Do you have a child in public school?  If so, make a point to contact your school and find out what sex education curriculum they use.  While schools will often not advertise this fact, each parent in the United States has the right to opt their children out of curriculum they find morally objectionable.  If you wish to train your child in the way he or she should go (Proverbs 22:6) without the local school district undermining your values, take action now.  Contact your school.  If they use SIECUS or similar curriculum, opt your child out from that course, and file a complaint with the school board.  If you wish to contact SIECUS to let them know how you feel about their curriculum, a list of email addresses is provided below.  May God bless you as you train up your child to be a servant of God.
