Class For Kids: How To Be Homosexual

A state-funded organization in Maine that has been touted as “a stellar program for social change” is advertising a coming seminar that essentially provides information to impressionable school-age boys on how to be homosexual, according to a pro-family organization opposing the plans.

The seminar is called “Queer, Questioning, Quiet: Developing Gender Identity & Male Sexual Orientation” and is being promoted by the Boys to Men organization headquartered in Portland, Maine, during its coming 2008 conference. The session is to feature a presentation by speakers from the homosexual Proud Rainbow Youth for Southern Maine, officials said.

“I think it’s outrageous,” Michael Heath, chief of the Christian Civic League of Maine told WND. ‘”This is now starting to happen in public schools throughout our state. The public needs to wake up, become aware, and speak out against it.”

The Boys to Men website advertisement about its conference says the outreach is “targeted primarily to middle and high school boys and their adult male mentors.” The specific workshop on homosexuality, the website said, includes “speakers from the Maine SpeakOut Project and PRYSM [who] will discuss their own coming-out experiences and use these as a springboard for exploring LGBT [Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgendered] issues and resources for youth in Southern Maine.”

The organization’s “core value” page states: “Traditional media and cultural representations of masculinity and femininity are too narrowly defined and contribute to destructive and damaging behavior towards individuals of all genders and ages. We are committed to eliminating the inequalities and institutional injustices that result from these traditional media and cultural representations of masculinity.”

It also lists as a goal to teach “young men and young women to work together to enhance school climate by standing up against … gender stereotyping, homophobia and intolerance of difference.”

“This continues to happen to impressionable young boys,” Heath said. “The sad thing is the boys who are least able to endure this message, this confusion, are the ones they’re preying upon.”

He said the New England states are just about even with California in pursuit of a sexual liberation that makes the hippies’ free love atmosphere of the 1960s look staid.

“We have laws protecting transgenders. We have a 10-year-old boy [in the state] being raised as a girl. The elementary school is being forced to allow the boy to use the bathroom with the girls,” Heath said.

He said it’s so important that families, and especially parents of younger children, realize the “sexual orientation cabal” that is flooding his state and region.

“We writing about it [the seminar] right now,” he said. “We’re going to let folks know … what’s going on.”

He said the “sexual revolution” is entrenched in the law, and its impacts are both widespread and serious.

“I don’t think insanity is too strong a word for it,” he said. “Here in New England .. urges and pleasures are what drive the culture, the law.”

Unless there is a rally for traditional and moral views, he said, “We will witness the disintegration of a civilization.” A best-case result would be that there is enough of a public reaction to the teachings that people start to pay attention and act on traditional moral values, he said.

    Sounds like this program is talking about helping people figure out who they are and helping those around them deal with that. Where is the conflict? Why would someone not want another person to be who God created them to be?

  2. Beth says:

    Well, Alex, if you will take out your Bible and read Romans 1:26-27 OR 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 Or, say Jude 1:7, you will see that the Bibe plainly calls homosexuality a sin. God does not create people to be homosexuals. There are people who have a tendency toward homosexuality, but like other sins, God intends for them to resist them and turn from homosexuality. The conflict lies therein.

    Alex, may I ask what Biblical basis you have for believing that homosexuality is okay with God?

    It won’t let me post.

    Hold that though Beth I have written a response but it will not let me post it for some reason. Help!

    Regardless of which side of the line you fall on whether homosexuality is a sin or not (see my personal views and whatnot in my comments on both the “News annalist Julie Banderas attacks anti-homosexual Christian preacher” and “EPA celebrates ‘Gay and Lesbian pride month'” articles) the focus of this article is the class and I’m wondering how it says anything except positive things for almost everyone? We have classes for dealing with everything from alcoholism to rape victims. Why not this “sin”? It should be in the schools because the idea is to help the children and the families of who deal with it. Why is homosexuality treated as something that should never be talked about or discussed unless it is brought up in only the most negative way? These people need help whether you think it is to “cure” them or to help them live in a world which means to “cure” them.
    Beth be sure to check out the website link in my comment in the “News annalist Julie Banderas attacks anti-homosexual Christian preacher” article. I don’t speak any of the original languages the bible was written in but since there is such a controversy over wording I go to other parts of the bible (such as every word Jesus said) to try to determine which side of the line to be on. But irregardless to how anyone feels, which seems to be what you like to pick fights about, wwe as Christians should not treat any particular kind of sinner different from the rest of us.
