Sexual indoctrination: an attack on parental rights, family and children’s souls. It's not our old "birds and bees."

The following is a guest post by Mr. Lou Iacobelli of the Everyday For Life Canada blog. In what is not your "birds and bees" education program, Lou highlights the indoctrination that has beset our children and families. I am honoured to know Lou and pleased that he has taken the time to write this important article to be posted here.

Sexual indoctrination: an attack on parental rights, family and children’s souls
by Lou Iacobelli

Sexual indoctrination is an attack on parental rights, family. marriage and children’s souls. Let's connect the dots to see how we have arrived at this moral abyss, a ravine which is putting children and families at risk both physically and spiritually. The moral devastation of the sexual revolution of the 1960s has transformed itself into today's radical sex "education" programs. Let's examine some of the evidence.

The Vatican

At the last World Youth Day held in Poland, 2016, the Vatican released a radical sex education program. To the shock of many, the goal of the program contradicts past Church teaching on marriage, family and life. The program is called “The meeting Point: Course for Affective Sexual Education for Young people.” It's an explicit sexual program that is the direct fallout from Pope Francis' Amoris Laetitia. The program is illustrated with a number of what can only be called pornographic photos.

What's wrong with it? There are so many things. To begin, it teaches about gender identity...a concept which is totally anti-Catholic because it rejects the biological and divine idea that human beings are made in the image of God, and created male and female. Instead, the Vatican program pushes the notion that parents are to make sure that their children are instructed in sexual education. But the program undermines parental rights by telling parents to let institutions do the sexual teaching not that parents are the prime educators of their children. There is no mention of sexual sins or the breaking of the 6th and 9th commandments. Basically, the Vatican has surrendered to the modern comprehensive sex education buzzword which is being pushed by all Western countries.

Ontario, Canada

In Ontario, Canada the radical sex curriculum began in earnest in 2009 with a school policy called, “Equity and Inclusive Education Strategy.” This was followed in 2015 by the provincial Liberal government release of the Physical Heath and Education program that contains a very radical sex curriculum. The controversial contents are now protected by law with Bill 13, the Accepting Schools Act.” In short, the policy, the sex curriculum and the law establish gay/straight student clubs in both Catholic and public schools. Ontario schools must teach and recognize gender, sexual orientation, gender expression and identity. Children in elementary grades learn about genitalia, masturbation, sexual consent, anal sex, oral sex, condom use, sexual pleasure and how to make a sexual plan. Many Ontario parents have protested the sex curriculum because it violates parental rights and religious freedom. In fact, 186,000 parents signed petitions against the curriculum which were presented in the legislature. But the government has refused to listen and will not even allow parents to withdraw their children from any section of the curriculum even if contradicts family values and beliefs.

Ontario Bishops

In 2016, the Ontario Catholic Secondary Curriculum Policy Document: for Grades 9-12, Religious Education prepared by the Institute for Catholic Education and approved by the Assembly of Catholic Bishops of Ontario was released. The policy document states that Catholic religious courses will include the topics of gender, sexual orientation, homophobia, gender identity and expression. It's on pages 51-52 of the document, under the headings: "Healthy Relationships and Religious Education" and "Equity and Inclusive Religious Education." The bottom line is this: the Ontario bishops have surrendered and have now given the green light to the 2015 Government sex curriculum which undermines parental rights, puts children's bodies, minds and souls at risk. It is a sex education program that totally contradicts Catholic teaching on the person, family, marriage and sexuality. The bishops must have been reading from the liberal pages of the Vatican's sex curriculum.

Ontario Courts Overruling Parental Rights

In November 2016, after a four year costly legal battle, an Ontario judge ruled against a father who had gone to court to defend his parental rights and religious freedom. Dr. Steve Tourloukis took the Hamilton-Wentworth District School Board to court in 2012. He simply wanted the school to inform him of class lessons dealing with the sex curriclum that contradicted his Greek-Orthodox faith so that he could keep his children at home. The judge's verdict is no.

In his argument, the judge makes a statement that should concern all parents in the province. He agreed that parental rights must be respected. However, there is a limit. Judge Reid writes, "I do not take the position of the applicant that his authority over his children and their education supersedes the law. Rather, the applicant seeks a declaratory order to support his claim that he can assert his Charter and Code rights without the Board responding by asserting a superior level of authority when it comes to the education of his children." The Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms and the Ontario Human Rights Code are supposed to protect religious freedom. However, the judge decided that "a superior level of authority" trumps parental rights and religious liberty. Readers can get more information about this terrible decision by going to the Parental Rights in Education Defence Fund.

The United Nations

The same radical comprehensive sex education is being pushed by the United Nations around the world. The UN website nicely describes it as "helping young people to explore and nurture positive values regarding their sexual and reproductive health. This education includes discussions about family life, relationships, culture and gender roles, and also addresses human rights, gender equality, and threats such as discrimination and sexual abuse." For many years, the United Nations has been advocating for universal sexual education. They have tried to go even further by suggesting that sexual rights is a universal human right, like the right to food, clean air and water! Note how sex education includes "gender roles" which means that children should be taught about sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression. There is never a mention about the important role of parents. What's happening is that children are being taught the secular vocabulary of sex and this will change their thinking and then of course, their behaviour. 


The Universal Declaration of Human Rights, in Article 26, (3) states: "Parents have a prior right to choose the kind of education that shall be given to their children." The Church too has always defended the rights of parents to direct their children's education. Past governments have respected this. Sadly, today, the state, the schools, the courts and even the Church can no longer be trusted to defend children and parents against an anti-moral attack that is relentlessly coming at them from many sides, disguised as sex "education," "equity and tolerance" and "sexual rights." These radical sex programs have nothing to do with education. They are sexual indoctrination that attack children, morally, spiritually, psychologically and spiritually. They necessarily attack parental rights, family and marriage. We are in a spiritual cultural war and children are being abused on so many fronts. Parents need to get informed and do all that they can to protect the souls of their children.

Lou Iacobelli is a "retired" Catholic educator who really has never stopped teaching. He is the Chair of the Parental Rights in Education Defense Fund and has been assisting Mr. Steve Tourloukis in his fight for parental and child rights in public education.

Radical Sex Education Programmes are shooting up world-wide like mushrooms! They are simply Sexual Abuse of Children. The initiators and perpetrators of such programmes need to be hauled before the courts and charged. And then jailed.
What is stopping people from acting on these lines?

Eirene you make a very valid point. But sadly the courts are corrupt. Did you not read the judicial activism taking place in Canada with the Dr. Steve Tourloukis case? It's a direct attack on Christian beliefs. It's open season on parental rights and religious freedom. And I only cited one case. There is Loyola in Quebec, the private Jesuit high school, that had to go as far as the Supreme Court of Canada to defend its right to teach religion in a Catholic context. In the end, they got a qualified victory. Then, there is Trinity Western University, whose law gradrautes have been barred from teaching in some provinces. The case is still in court. That same university had to go to the SCC to get its teachers' accredited. And the list goes on. Complacency, comfort, a lukewarm faith and fear are all keeping citizens from stopping the tsunami of political correctness. And, I must add, the silence and lack of spritual leadership from the Church in Canada. We need to remember that true faith demands both action and prayer.

Eirene, You ask, "What is stopping people from acting on these lines?"

I think it is that most of them, and I speak specifically of Catholics and other Christians, are immersed in their own sins of the flesh and therefore, cannot see the issue.

The levels of those watching pornography and that which goes along with it is astounding. Most Catholics don't see anything wrong with it, even many of those who regularly attend Mass. If they can't see the problem in their own souls, then they will not see the problem in the broader culture. They want to continue to enjoy their porn and their masturbation and fornication so how can they speak out on this issue? Because there are so many in to these, how can they speak against the homosexualist domination of our culture or so called marriage, between those of the same sex?

You see, it would make them "hypocrites," and, "uncharitable," and, "Judgemental."

Those, as we see under this current papacy, are the greater sins.

We must be nice at all costs.

"...the Ontario bishops have surrendered and have now given the green light..."

The Ontario bishops have not so much "surrendered". Specifically, they are complicit in the governmental enforcement of this abomination - because *they are* sodomite perverts and/or they possess insatiable inclinations to sodomy and its related depravities.

This is a damning indictment on the Catholic bishops in Canada. No excuses, this is shameful, a horror, a nightmare. If these men were my only choice, I'd stay home.

The only thing that will make a difference is for adults to organize and start making some noise. There is a group I bet these people to contact, MassResistance! The head of that group is Brian Camenker, and MassResistance is way ahead of you in this battle, and will help you fight it. They just helped groups in, I think, Nebraska successfully get this stopped there. What is required is know how, and they know how. Now get going! Your children's souls are at stake!
This is just an abomination, evil, and disgusting. Church leaders, you betray yourselves as sodomites if you go along with this evil! Speak up or we will know!

This mechanical attitude to so called sexual activity can not be overestimated in its devastating effect on children.

Sexual intimacy, when practised by married couples, with openness to new life, is holy and unique in each case. Training in schools, exposure through the media and pornography industry, causes irreparable damage.

Married life is an exclusive, life-long journey of two loving people, a man and a woman, toward holiness and salvation, always filled with challenges.

Sex-ed omits what is most important, and teaches promiscuity, techniques, and practice of deviance. These errors destroy the innocence of children and present a very depraved view of what life is all about which is - serving God.

This depravity can not be stopped. All children around the world are being poisoned by it. Innocence once taken can't be returned.

The Church has completely let the parents and the children down. Rather than attempting to stop this progress of depravity, the Church led by depraved clergymen is making its own contribution to this tragic course. Shame on them. How will God forgive them, if they don't repent? I don't think He will.

Their use of the word "gender" is for indoctrination of adults. There are sexes...male an female. Not genders.

Not playing their game!

Thanks for the wisdom of Vox and other commenters on this scandalous subject. How about a fighting fund - as in multi dollars - and lawyers who will do pro-bono work in these cases. I read that lawyers in the US are offering pro bono work for traitorous electors in the Electoral College who will not certify their vote! (If that all makes sense)!
If the "bad guys" can do this, so surely can the lawyers and para-legals in God's Army?! Often with Victory assured, since the Battle is HIS! Blessed be God in His Angels and in His Saints!
