Targeting Our Children – No. 4729

The war against our children never lets up. Various activist groups are continually aiming to get our children into their less-than-healthy lifestyles. Such attempts occur at a regular pace, and it is hard to keep up with it all.

The latest attempt to hijack our kids comes from – no surprise here – yet another academic pushing an agenda. Deakin University health and education lecturer Dr Maria Pallotta-Chiarolli said parents should teach their children about gay relationships from the age of three or four.

The academic is the author of When Our Children Come Out: How to Support Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgendered Young People. She said parents should tell their children there was nothing wrong with same-sex relationships. That way, if they were gay, children would feel comfortable coming out to friends and family.

Of course our sexpert here is not some disinterested and neutral academic. She is an activist who has a clear agenda to push. For example, she is an Honorary Lifelong Patron of P-flag (Parents, Families, and Friends of Lesbians and Gays), and is often featured in the homosexual press.

Homosexual activist Rodney Croome says this about her work: “Pallotta-Chiarolli validates her research in holistic and humanistic terms the great Kinsey would have approved of.” Of course the perverted Kinsey conducted “research” into the lives of sexual offenders and paedophiles in prison, and his work has been roundly criticised. So she is moving in some bad company here.

But what about her proposal? Do three-year-olds need homosexuality education? Do they even need general sex education? Clearly not. Such young children are not at all ready, either mentally, emotionally, or psychologically, to grapple with such adult themes.

They are not even asking about the latest Playstation console. They are simply trying to be children, and we should not seek to steal away their innocence and childhood. What we have here are adult activists who are seeking to sexualise our young people, and who want to normalise homosexuality.

Indeed, this is really just a recruitment drive on their part, a way of targeting vulnerable children. It has everything to do with the agendas of the homosexual lobby, and nothing to do with the well-being of little children.

But Ms Pallotta-Chiarolli argues that a child might have a homosexual uncle, and thus needs to learn about this. But a child might also have an uncle who is a heroin addict, or is in a correctional institute. Should we be telling these little children all about those adult situations as well?

It is time that we let our children be children. We must resist the attempts of the radical homosexual lobby to indoctrinate our children. They are free to recruit adults into their high-risk lifestyle, but they really should get their hands off our children.
