Wow, you think your kids are safe and being taken care of by people who have their best interests in mind, and then you hear this disturbing story. Can you imagine how you'd feel if your pre-teen, who you pray for and do everything to guide and protect, comes home having heard graphically how to mutually masterbate and have sex in various ways?
That's exactly what happened at an Oklahoma middle school this month. Without parental notification, junior high students were told explicit information about how to have "safe sex." Here, Franklin Graham warns parents of what is happening in their own public schools, without their consent.
Graham begins, "Parents beware and listen up—here’s an example of how dangerous our public schools have become for our children. This Oklahoma middle school was teaching 7th and 8th graders topics in their sex education class including mutual masturbation, oral, vaginal and anal sex as the '4 types' of sex."
"It disturbed one 12-year-old student so much that she was in tears and asked to be taken out of the class," Graham continues. "Another student said, 'Mom, it's like instead of telling us how not to do it, it’s like they gave us a road map.' This curriculum tried to make it more elementary by having kids fill in the blanks and referring to 'underwear zones.' This is all part of an agenda to pervert the minds and steal the innocence of children—it’s wrong, and it’s evil."
Graham ends his post in this strong warning: "Parents, be on guard. Get informed about what the schools are teaching your children. Get involved and let the school and the school board know this isn’t going to happen on your watch. I urge Christians across the country to run for your local and state school boards where you can help put a stop to initiatives like this. Let me know in the comments below if this kind of garbage is being taught in your community’s schools."
Mandy Callihan, a parent of one of the students, shared on Facebook about how disturbed she was when her child told her about what happened. She shared a picture of the "homework" the kids were assigned.
“I was appalled at what someone in our school system had deemed appropriate to talk to my child about. My TWELVE year old child (who still colors in coloring books). In a room where boys and girls are combined. With male instructors (or female, depending on the time of day, I guess) who are not teachers (or Nurses) in our school system,” Callihan wrote.
“They most certainly did NOT say, ‘Hey moms and dads we’re gonna be teaching your very young sons and daughters about masturbating by themselves (and mutual masturbation with partners), spend some time talking about oral sex, and anal sex,'” she said.
What's also disturbing is that the entire chain of school authorities approved the curriculum, thinking it was good for the 12 year-olds to hear! “The teacher said it was board approved. The school counselor said it was board approved. The school nurse said it was board approved. The Principal said ‘HE approved it and there was nothing wrong with it,'” Callihan wrote.
What do you think of this absurd teaching young kids are getting in school, without the knowledge of their parents? What would you do if your child came home and told you about this? Share your thoughts in the comments! Graham just recently posted about what happened to a young girl when led into a bathroom with a transgender man. While the two issues seem unrelated, the guiding thread is that our kids are being confused on a deep level about sexuality and what is right and wrong.
