This Dutch Lawmaker Wants Gay Sex Stuffed Down the Throats of Jesus-Loving School Kids

Boris van der Ham

You know how the right-wing is attacking Obama’s safe school czar Kevin Jennings? Over his “queering” of America’s schools? When all he wants to do is keep LGBT kids safe from bullying? While America is subjecting him to attacks, a certain lawmaker is advising all of his nation’s schools — including the religious ones — to do exactly this.

Haha no, his name is not Jared Polis. It’s Dutch lawmaker Boris van der Ham, an ardent gay rights advocate, who had the revolutionary idea that, hey, school children in the Netherlands should learn about the queers. Even if they go to a school with Jesus nailed to the wall. Radio Netherlands:

Religion-based schools should mention homosexuality in their sex education lessons, just like other Dutch schools do, according to liberal MP Boris van der Ham. His view is that pupils in orthodox Christian or Islamic primary and secondary schools need this kind of education as much as any child.

The MP’s plea coincides with Thursday’s debate on the issue. In a joint letter to parliament, six well-established national organisations involved in sexual education are asking for homosexuality to be included as a mandatory topic in the sex lessons. The groups, including the national gay interest group (COC) and teenage gay group Expreszo, point out that most schools ignore same-sex relationships. In Amsterdam 82 percent of schools were found to stay silent about the topic.

“Sexual education gets only a minimal mention in the national curriculum. This enables many schools to avoid it altogether,” Mr Van der Ham told news website nu.nl. Publicly funded non-denominational schools also wriggle out of giving this kind of education, he says, proposing that funding is cut when schools leave the obligatory sex lessons out of the curriculum.

Ultimatums? Threats? We’re liking what we hear.
