Compulsory lessons in sex and atheism “could cause chaos” in Welsh schools ^ | Dec 10, 2020

Minister for Education, Kirsty Williams, is pushing an education Bill which requires all pupils to study atheism or ‘non-religious’ views such as Humanism with no parental right of withdrawal. Under the new system a non-religious committee in each area is given a veto power over all religious teaching. So humanists, who actively oppose all religion, are to be handed control over religious teaching in schools.

The sensitive issue of sex education is also being given a total rewrite, imposing compulsory sex education for all pupils from the age of three. All existing safeguards on inappropriate materials are scrapped by the legislation with no guarantees they will be re-introduced in any future code.

Simon Calvert, Deputy Director for Public Affairs at The Christian Institute, said today:

“Members of the Senedd are being asked to vote blind for a sex education curriculum they haven’t seen, whilst stripping away protections that took decades to achieve.

“Currently, individual primary schools can decide whether to provide sex education. It must be provided in secondary schools. But parents have a right to withdraw their children. This is an important backstop against unsuitable teaching since schools will not want to do anything that triggers parents withdrawing children. But this right is being abolished, despite overwhelming public support for it in Government consultations.

It’s always by force with them.

Never by consensus.

Of course as “humanists” they demand that you don’t teach them religion because “rights” but by God they’ll force their teaching on you.

Hell, what are they being coy about? Just mandate that every student must become a Satanist or denounce God altogether, and be done with it. That’s the final goal and evveryone knows it

You're right. Read: Secular Democrats Urge Biden To 'Advance Constitutional Secularism," Attack Christianity."

Link here:

I urge you to read the 25 page paper prepared by Secular Democrats of America. It calls for the deconstruction of everything achieved by Trump. It also describes 'white Christian nationalists' as threats and much more that is evil:
