Shortly before Maine became one of the first states to approve gay marriage at the ballot box, a school district in the state was ahead of the curve with a presentation of graphic gay sex acts.
Promoted as part of the school’s “Diversity Day”, 25 students in a middle school class were subjected to the filth by a group called Proud Rainbow Youth of Southern Maine.
The reprehensible display included advising students about safe homosexual sex acts and suggesting the use of saran wrap during oral sex if a dental dam is not available.
The mother of one 13-year-old upset by the presentation told the media that the PRYSM speaker also used profanity when spreading the gay-centric message.
“I’ve had to let him know that no matter what situation he gets in, my suggestion is not saran wrap. My suggestion is to abstain altogether,” she said.
School curricula regularly operates outside of parents’ influence, and most children are taught to respect and obey their teachers. It must be incredibly frustrating for the millions of students who hear one view at home and a starkly different opinion in class.
A spokesperson for Protect Marriage Maine weighed in on the controversial incident, saying this is likely just the tip of the iceberg.
“If there was any doubt that gay marriage would be taught to young children in Maine schools just as it is in Massachusetts and Canada, that doubt should be removed now,” he said, adding activists will likely “force gay marriage instruction of young children” now that the state allows such unions.
To his credit, the principal of the school involved did send parents an apology letter.
In part, he told concerned parents the presenters “discussed topics that we do not deem appropriate for our middle school.” At least there is, for now, a level of indoctrination even school administrators do not endorse.
Unfortunately, Tuesday’s election seemed to indicate this nation is lurching wildly to the left. While many are rightfully concerned about the implicit fiscal catastrophe that re-positioning will cause, social conservatives obviously have plenty of their own about which to worry.
