Christian campaigners: Ban schools teaching about gay couples and ‘transgenderism’

  • TwitterFacebookRedditEmail

A Christian campaign group that appears on the BBC on a near-weekly basis has called for teaching about ‘gay couples and transgenderism’ to be outlawed.

The government today launched a consultation on the future of sex and relationship education in schools, amid calls from sexual health campaigners to make sure its guidance reflects the 21st century.

But anti-LGBT campaigners from Christian Concern would apparently be happier if it reflected the 17th.

Andrea Williams, Chief Executive of Christian Concern, put out a statement after the consultation was announced to call for a total ban on mentions of LGBT people in primary schools.

The group also called for the active promotion of heterosexual marriage in secondary schools.

She said: “The government and lobby groups with a highly liberal and indoctrinating agenda tell us that our children can be educated out of such sexualisation. More sex education has not worked up to now and will not work in the future.

“There is no ‘age-appropriate’ way to teach primary school children about sexual relationships. Nor should primary school children be taught about homosexual relationships or transgenderism as they are too young to engage with such concepts.”

She added that even in secondary schools, “marriage between a man and a woman should be taught as the gold standard of relationships.”

Christian Concern added: “Marriage is the recognition of long-term, committed, stable, exclusive relationships which are the most fulfilling relationships, and which have the most benefit for society as well as being the best environment for children to be brought up.
