‘Know your facts’ – concerned parents hear call to engage with schools over worrying Relationships and Sex Education

from Christian Today:

Christians came together in London on Saturday to hear concerns about the harmful sex education being taught to teenagers and young children in British schools.

The conference, organised by Anglican Mainstream, brought together a broad spectrum of campaigners, including two Muslim parents from Birmingham, where protests were sparked in opposition to the No Outsiders diversity and equality programme.

Concerns among conservative parents of faith have been heightened by the roll-out this September of the Government’s new mandatory Relationships and Sex Education curriculum.

Conference delegates heard how schools are increasingly teaching teenagers and even young children about self-stimulation, anal and oral sex, and extreme sexual behaviour.

Dr Lisa Nolland, Convenor of Anglican Mainstream’s Marriage, Sex and Culture Group, called current sex education “deeply flawed” and said it “ignores fundamental biological realities, offers false assurance and tacitly encourages children to be sexually active”.

“There are major, negative, lifelong consequences to sexual activity which are minimised or ignored in Comprehensive Sexuality Education,” she said.
