LifesiteNews.com reported on March 28:

As parents in Germany have protested a new pro-homosexual “sexual diversity” curriculum in their schools, homosexual activists have attacked them by hurling feces and destroying their property, according to the Observatory on Intolerance and Discrimination against Christians, which documents anti-Christian incidents in Europe.”

“Protesters were physically attacked and it was felt that the police failed to protect the parents’ basic right of assembly,” said a statement from the Observatory describing incidents at recent rallies in Baden-Württemberg and Cologne.”

“They were spit at, eggs were thrown, and little bags with feces or color. Cables of loud speakers were torn out,” the organization says. “Pages were ripped out of the bible and used to wipe backsides, then formed into a ball and thrown at the parents.”

Not so long ago, this story would induce little more than a shoulder shrug and a bit of pity for the poor folks living in such a place.

That is Germany–not America right? I’m safely tucked in the Bible belt. Besides, we have enough problems of our own–why worry about what’s going on in another country?

At some point, it’s wise to step out of our own house and check to see if our foundation has eroded. Now is that time. A steady drip over time becomes part of the landscape hardly noticeable, then it erodes more than you can imagine right under your nose.

This incident, although in Germany, is worth looking at a little more closely. Not just because of the shocking depravity of the acts involved, what is more important is to understand the plight of the parents. It’s a good reminder to check our own foundations and compare what is currently happening in our schools to the rights of parents.

Our similarities might surprise you.

“In the words of an article in the Journal of School Health, sex education presents ‘an exciting opportunity to develop new norms.’ Only in the light of this agenda does it make sense that so-called ‘sex education’ should be advocated to take place throughout the school years–from kindergarten to college– when it could not possibly take that much time to teach basic biological or medical information about sex. What takes that long is a constant indoctrination in new attitudes.“

This reminds me of a conversation I once had with a colleague. We were both working in a private sector company that taught computer classes to adults. We had recently changed the name of our department from Skills Education to Skills Training (for reasons that hadn't been communicated to me) and she described how she explained the name change to customers and potential customers. "People ask the difference between education and training. I ask them which they would rather their kids have in school: sex education or sex training. That always makes it crystal clear to them what the difference is."

I think Sowell is right on the money when he observes that it can't possibly take years to communicate the essentials of how human reproduction works. Clearly, the rest of that time is used to communicate other things. I'd be very curious to know how that time is being spent. Is it on sexual technique? Advocacy that kids should be having sex? Conditioning kids to believe that all forms of sexual expression are precious and unique, no matter what they are?

"Consider this: Who owns the children?"
No one owns them, they are given into our care for a short time, then released to the wild. But we must never allow them to be treated as a commodity or thing.
That is where evil is, treating people as things.
