Kids will be left be­wil­dered

The Courier & Advertiser (Angus and The Mearns Edition) - - COMMENT -

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.
