'Have sex, do drugs,' speaker tells students

Posted at WorldNetDaily today is an article that highlights an issue that is growning in concern. Increasingly, the people who are teaching our children in the government school system are taking the position that kids are going to have sex and do drugs anyway, so we should teach them how to do it in a safe and healthy manner. This position completely disregards the morality of such behavior and only seeks to mitigate risks and minimize the consequences of immoral behavior.

A guest speaker at an assembly at Boulder High School in Colorado has told students as young as 14 to go have sex and use drugs, prompting school officials to say they will investigate.

The instructions came from Joel Becker, an associate clinical professor of psychology at the University of California at Los Angeles.

"I am going to encourage you to have sex and encourage you to use drugs appropriately," Becker said during his appearance at the school as part of a recent panel sponsored by the University of Colorado's Conference on World Affairs.

"Why I am going to take that position is because you are going to do it anyway," he continued. "I think as a psychologist and health educator, it is more important to educate you in a direction that you might actually stick to. So, I am going to stay mostly on with the sex side because that is the area I know more about. I want to encourage you to all have healthy, sexual behavior."


Fox News' Bill O'Reilly said Boulder already is known as a "far left" town.

He played a recording of an "unidentified male" saying: "We all experiment. It's very natural for young people to experiment with same sex relationships. When you are 13, 12, 13, 14 certainly probably one of the most appropriate sexual behaviors would be masturbation. Even today, there are psychiatrists who will do sessions under the influence of ecstasy. If I had some maybe I'd do it with someone, but you know."

The transcript obtained by WND showed those comments also were from Becker.

Parents, you are ultimately responsible for the teaching of your children. You can blame the teachers and the schools and the TV programs and the games your children play, you can blames your children's friends, society, inadequate law enforcement, weak laws, president Bush or former president Clinton, but the bottom line is that you are responsible.

I don't post these stories just to make you angry at other people, I post these stories to make you consider what you are doing when you send your children to government schools to get their education. They spend 8 or more hours there every day, being influenced by friends, teachers, and speakers that are sometimes seen as babbling fools, and sometimes seen as witty, clever, funny and right to your children.

Things are only going to get worse until we consistently and loudly send the message to our representatives and schools that we as a nation will not stand for it.
