Michael Kuiper on God’s Design for Sex vs. Comprehensive Sexuality Education

“It is not good for man to be alone…”

While most parents have been looking the other way, a subtle force called “comprehensive sexuality education” (CSE) has infiltrated our public schools.

Sponsored by SIECUS (the Sexuality Information Education Council of the United States”), Planned Parenthood, teachers’ unions and the ACLU, CSE represents curricula ostensibly designed to protect children: from bullying or feeling unwelcome, from unwanted pregnancy and STI’s. Certainly, these are goals we would all sponsor. Yet, on closer examination, one wonders about the spirit embedded in this powerful educational and legislative juggernaut. Could this be a deceptive spirit opposing the Creator’s design and purpose for sexuality?

According to Family Watch International, comprehensive sexuality education represents a global movement that sponsors graphic sexuality and is designed to bring about profound changes in how humans understand sex. “CSE is designed to change the social and gender norms of society, promotes high-risk sexual behaviors and encourages even the youngest of children to experiment sexually.”

We are all familiar with the “culture wars,” yet the issues at stake here transcend Left vs. Right, conservative or liberal.

As Christians, we understand that a world divided against itself was never God’s intention. Rather, the Creator designed humans to exist in loving communion with one another. The Genesis narrative presents the original template for such communion as a sexual one: Adam and Eve together, as one flesh. The man and woman were not to function in solitary or competitive pursuits, but in mutuality and shared goals. Together, they were given the mandate to subdue the earth and fill it (Genesis 1:28). God obviously liked people and wanted lots of them.

The tragic fall of man depicted in Genesis 3 shattered their unity and frustrated their purpose. Tempted to see themselves as more than mere creatures, dependent on the Creator, the first humans would now experience life through a lens of conflict. Now knowing good and evil, they know themselves as naked; ashamed, they hide from God and turn against each other. The mandate to fill the earth with life and unity is now corrupted by death and conflict.

The Bible doesn’t tell us much about the tempter – that antagonistic force depicted as a serpent. Yet, the presence of this adversarial spirit in opposing God’s intention that the two sexes flourish together can be clearly discerned in every age. Disguised as a messenger of light, this presence continues to deceive, tempt and impede God’s design for the cooperative and generative purpose of sexuality.

Like a broken dam, various forms of CSE are saturating public schools across the country. As usual, California leads the way. Wearing a sheep suit of compassion for sexual minorities, the Board of Education, as evidenced in the California Healthy Youth Act, California Education Code 51930 – 51939, has aggressively mandated sweeping ideological changes in the way teachers present sex education.

With barely concealed menace for traditional attitudes or contrary opinion, progressive ideologies are enforced. Educators “must” affirm that a person may be attracted to the same or different genders. “Your instruction teaches that any of the different sexual orientations is normal.” Not only must this instruction include examples of same gender relationships but must also explore the harms of negative gender stereotypes. “Your instruction has activities addressing and debunking negative genders role stereotypes.” “You refrain from: suggesting that girls care about love and emotions… Talking only of young mothers and not young fathers, and so on.”

Indoctrination on gender identity begins in kindergarten. Teachers are to explain to children that their sex is merely assigned at birth and may not match their “true” gender identity. Teachers in no uncertain terms must affirm and normalize such conditions. “Your instruction explains that a transgendered girl is a girl and a transgendered boy is a boy.”
