An­gered at Im­moral­ity Pro­mo­tion

Dear Editor:

On May 10th of this year, City Coun­cil­man Chaim Deutsch voted for a bill (#1028-2015) that sets up a task force to su­per­vise sex ed­u­ca­tion in the school sys­tem. The bill re­quires the task force to "(g) makes rec­om­men­da­tions about the in­clu­sion of sex­ual health ed­u­ca­tion con­tent ar­eas that specif­i­cally address is­sues rel­e­vant to stu­dents who iden­tify as other than het­ero­sex­ual, in­clud­ing but not lim­ited to, les­bian, gay, bi­sex­ual, trans­gen­der, ques­tion­ing and gen­der non-con­form­ing stu­dents, in­clud­ing rec­om­men­da­tions that specif­i­cally address sex­ual health knowl­edge for same-sex re­la­tion­ships.”

While this is bad enough since this bill also came out of the ed­u­ca­tion com­mit­tee that Coun­cil­man Deutsch is on, he was at the com­mit­tee hear­ings on this bill and also voted for this bill in com­mit­tee. Thus, Coun­cil­man Deutsch who is our com­mu­nity's rep­re­sen­ta­tive voted twice to say that Flat­bush thinks that we should pro­mote ho­mo­sex­u­al­ity in the schools. We need to now tell Deutsch, no, we do not want to pro­mote ho­mo­sex­u­al­ity in the schools and there­fore we must vote against him!

Sin­cerely, Robert Sas­son
