Our Mother Who is Within Us

The father of a 13-year-old girl in Kansas is upset about a poster in his daughter’s classroom listing explicit sexual acts.

The poster, entitled, “How Do People Express Their Sexual Feelings?” lists sex acts such as: Oral Sex, Sexual Fantasy, Caressing, Anal Sex, Dancing, Hugging, Touching Each Other’s Genitals, Kissing, Grinding, and Masturbation.

Ellis said after being told by the school principal the poster was “teaching material,” he is now concerned about what his daughter is being taught in school.

“It upsets me,” he said. “And again, it goes back to who approved this? You know this had to pass through enough hands that someone should have said, ‘Wait a minute, these are 13-year-old kids, we do not need to be this in-depth with this sexual education type of program.’”

The egalitarian ideology of our time cuts the human heart and soul out of the profession of the teacher.

Forty years ago, a few wise men at the college where I teach, motivated both by that acknowledgment of authority and by their belief in the ontological equality of all mankind, embarked on a brave reform.

At the time when the elite colleges were scrapping their curricula, effectively burning the books of three thousand years of our Western heritage, our faculty dedicated themselves to something beyond themselves, deserving of their honor. What if the elites at Harvard no longer honored and studied Dante? The students at our college would do so—the children of ordinary people, not rich, and perhaps not destined for riches, either.

What if the technicians of education no longer saw any use for the political wisdom of Aristotle and Plato? The faculty at our school, not exalted technicians with conveniently reductive equations, but rather human beings asking the human questions, would try to recover and hand on something of their wisdom.

They welcomed those young people with equal heartiness into a world of glorious inequality. I cannot say we have always succeeded at the task. But it has at least been a human enterprise. And that is more than I can say for most of what goes on in the egalitarian prison house that goes by the name of “school.”

Time for the national debate on banning umbrellas?

Police in Ridgefield, Conn., have determined a local school safe after checking out a report of a suspicious and possibly armed man.

Buses have begun bringing students to Branchville School after police declared the school safe.

“After an extensive police search, no dangerous activity was discovered,” school officials said.

The school was locked down after a caller reported seeing a man with what looked like a rifle walking along a road. Students were to be diverted to another school and all local schools were locked down.

There are now unconfirmed reports that the man turned out to be a worker at a store in Branchville, on his way to his job with an umbrella over his shoulder, according to the Ridgefield Press.

Newtown school shooter killed because he wanted to … and it was convenient.

The exact same rationale applies

to purveyors of Planned Parenthood abortion “services” where

329,445 innocents were slaughtered

by abortion

in the year 2011

with U.S. Government approval

and various financial subsidies.

Sex education as child abuse

Because of the sex education class given students last week, parent Curtis Pannkuk said, “Our daughter did not want to go back to school, she cried all the way to school today.”

Editor’s note: This type of state mandated “sex education” not only robs little children of their innocence, but it is also a type of mental sexual assault … virtual child rape … if you will.

In principle and in application, it’s not that far removed from China’s government mandated one child policy … or Barack Obama’s ill-conceived HHS Abortion/Contraception Mandate.

Why do those who claim to advocate “choice” almost invariably attempt to enforce draconian, “one size fits all” programs on the innocent and the unsuspecting?

Shameless ideologues just can’t help it!
