NEW YORK, March 12, 2021 (C-Fam) — The U.S. government under Joe Biden supports “comprehensive sexuality education” in UN policy once again. This controversial UN approach to sex-education includes teaching grade-school children that homosexuality and transgenderism are healthy, and that masturbation is positive.
U.S. diplomats expressed strong support for “comprehensive sexuality education” in negotiations for an agreement on women’s issues to be adopted by the UN Commission on the Status of Women on March 23, according to insiders familiar with the negotiations.
Under the Trump administration the U.S. government had backed off promoting this controversial term. In a turnaround from only a few weeks ago, U.S. diplomats are now following the lead of the European Union and insisting that this term makes it into the agreement of the commission.
The insistence of European delegations and the Obama administration to include “comprehensive sexuality education” in UN agreements is responsible for derailing negotiations over past UN agreements. Countries who lean conservative on social issues oppose the term for fear of endorsing highly controversial sex education curricula promoted by international agencies.
The UN agency for education (UNESCO), alongside other UN agencies, released a UN-system-wide curriculum guide on “comprehensive sexuality education” in 2018. The guide endorsed by UNICEF, UN Women, UNFPA and the WHO is now used across the UN system and includes highly controversial content.
The UN agency guidelines propose teaching children as young as five that people show love and care for others “sometimes through sexual behaviors” and “the difference between biological sex and gender.” In the same age-range, the guidelines suggest pushing children to identify “trusted adults” other than their parents to “help them understand themselves, their feelings and their bodies.”
The guidelines aggressively promote social acceptance of homosexuality and transgenderism from a young age, including teaching five-year-old children that their gender does not necessarily correspond to their biological sex and that “there are many different kinds of families.”
The UN agencies even recommend telling nine-year-olds that masturbation is normal and “does not cause physical or emotional harm but should be done in private.”
According to the curriculum teenagers as young as twelve should also be taught how to access contraception, abortion, and reproductive health “without significant barriers, regardless of ability, marital status, gender, gender identity or sexual orientation.” The UN guidelines do not mention any role for parental oversight or involvement in these decisions.
The UN system guide also maintains that teenagers should be taught that “everyone, including people living with HIV, have the right to express sexual feelings and love for others” and, at the same time, that individuals who test positive for HIV/AIDS should “not be required to disclose their HIV status.”
The UN guidelines recommend making comprehensive sexuality education mandatory in schools even though the evidence of its efficacy is mixed.
The so-called 'Equality Act' contains deadly poison for Christian democracy in the United States. And, its harmless-sounding name tries to hide this insidious reality.
But, unfortunately, Pelosi and company have JUST PASSED this morally repugnant bill in the US House of Representatives.
Pro-life and pro-family organizations, as well as Christian churches and the US Conference of Catholic Bishops, and freedom-loving groups everywhere, are now sounding the alarm.
Wake up, America, this is RED ALERT time!
This petition, therefore, calls on every US Senator to vigorously oppose and reject this bill.
Yes, it's THAT important.
The bill has nothing to do with "equality," or with extending the 1964 Civil Rights Act, which is how it is being touted by the leftists in the mainstream media.
It is, rather, one of the MOST EXTREME anti-life, pro-LGBT indoctrination bills ever proposed.
It has been described as a short-list of the worst possible elements of the Radical Left's agenda in Congress...and, REMEMBER, it has just passed the House!
We need to tell all US Senators, in no uncertain terms, that WE WILL NOT ACCEPT this outrageous attack on our freedoms and on life, itself!
SIGN AND SHARE THIS URGENT PETITION, TODAY!
And, after you have signed this petition, please CLICK HERE to DIRECTLY CONTACT YOUR U.S. SENATORS, and tell them to oppose this assault on our freedoms of thought, speech, conscience and religion.
FOR MORE INFORMATION:
Below are some of the devastating critiques of 'Equality Act,' leveled by some of the best conservative, Christian minds in the country.
Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council (FRC), has written that the 'Equality Act' will include, "the largest expansion of taxpayer-funded abortion this country has ever seen.”
"Under this big new umbrella of 'discrimination,'" continued Perkins, "any American who doesn’t want to fund, offer, perform, or participate in abortion on demand will have no real choice. They can conform — or they can be punished."
"Every wall that’s been built between abortion and the government would come crashing down, including the Hyde Amendment, the pro-conscience Weldon Amendment, and several international barriers that keep our country from exporting abortion."
ON CHRISTIANITY, RELIGIOUS FREEDOM and LGBT INDOCTRINATION:
Lloyd Marcus, of the American Thinker publication, has written about the 'Equality Act' in the following terms:
"LGBTQ enforcer and homosexual Democrat congressman David Cicilline is sponsor of the Equality Act. Cicilline's evil bill is the most aggressive assault on our constitutional religious liberties in U.S. history...If the Equality Act becomes the law of the land, every outrageous, tyrannical demand [of LGBTQ activists/enforcers] will become reality."
And, Liberty Counsel Action, a law and policy education, training and advocacy organization which, among other things, advances religious freedom, the sanctity of human life, and the family has extensively criticized the 'Equality Act'.
On their webpage, dedicated to analyzing the 'Equality Act', which you can access below, Liberty Counsel Action state: "The 'Equality' Act' elevates 'sexual orientation and gender identity' to the same protected category as race. It will violate the religious freedom of Americans in numerous ways."
The go on to list the areas of life which this will affect: "It will impact all employers, including religious and non-profit organizations; contractors; houses of worship; public, private, and religious schools; curriculum; bathrooms; sports; daycare providers; shelters; hospitals; places of gatherings; entertainment providers; counselors; foster care and adoption; biological parents; landlords; anywhere providing a “good, service, or program,” including those advertised online; transportation drivers; and all local, state, and federal entities and many other areas."
And, as they note: "[T]here is NO RELIGIOUS EXEMPTION to this bill!"
Taking into account all of these potential threats to Christian democracy, Life and religious freedom, it is easy to see how the so-called 'Equality Act' has been called a "poison pill."
It is imperative that the US Senate vigorously reject this bill, AND EXPOSE IT FOR WHAT IT REALLY IS.
Please SIGN this urgent petition, TODAY!

LifeSiteNews opinion and analysis of the so-called 'Equality Act':
A section on the data flaws and limitations within the guidelines, warns that less than half of sexuality education programs show any positive results in delayed sexual debut, fidelity, and correct use of condoms and that no studies “examined programmes for gay, lesbian or other young people engaging in same-sex sexual behavior.”
To implement the guidelines, UNESCO officials recommend an even more progressive curriculum prepared by global abortion groups Population Council and International Planned Parenthood Federation.
When implemented at the national level “comprehensive sexuality education” curricula are sometimes called with other names, including family health education, life-skills education, sexual and reproductive health education.
