Kids will be left bewildered
Sir, – Leslie Thomson sees fit to challenge the claim of Richard Lucas that the newly proposed LGBTI education amounts to indoctrination (Courier Letters, November 21).
I would suggest that we examine the expressions which Mr Thomson himself uses and promotes.
Expressions such as “LGBTI inclusive education” or “sexual and gender fluidity” are unnatural, confusing and suited more to indoctrination than to children’s education.
Let us remember we are dealing with precious but undeveloped minds here.
If primary school aged children must be taught anything about relationships outside the safety of their own home, the teaching should be characterised by words of humanity, not confusion; words like man, woman, boy, girl, marriage and baby.
It would be wise to remember the teaching of Jesus, that anyone who causes one of these little ones to stumble will be dealt with most severely by their Creator (Mark, chapter nine, verse 42). Stuart Wishart. 12 Walnut Grove, Blairgowrie.
