BELIZE JOURNAL PT. 2 on pro-family curriculum. Sodomy may now be legalized—at least until we can mount a successful appeal of that Supreme Court decision. But we must do all we can to see that sodomy is not promoted. Especially not in schools—where kids are just beginning to grow into their God-given sexual identities.
The National Evangelical Association of Belize has formed a Watchmen Committee for this purpose. It will alert the public to pro-LGBT incursions in any arena of national influence. We know their main target is the most impressionable sector—kids. Already we’re developing a plan to keep kids occupied with sports and other healthy activities after school, when they are most vulnerable to sexual and criminal influences. But inside school kids are also vulnerable. With sodomy legalized, we can expect foreign-financed LGBT propaganda to promote in schools all kinds of sex as not only normal but desirable.
But that won’t happen if we already have a strong pro-family curriculum in the schools. Our Watchmen Committee has found such a curriculum in a most unlikely place. The UN! Yes, the often pro-LGBT UN has an HFLE (Health & Family Life Education) pro-family curriculum made especially for Belize through UNESCO. It differs radically from the pro-LGBT Peace Corps HFLE Manual, which the Belize government removed under church pressure in 2012.
This HFLE pro-family curriculum is committed to:
• “Respect the inherent rights of parents/guardians for their children.”
• Foster “the development of knowledge, skills and attitudes that make for healthy family life.”
• Increase “the ability to practice responsible decision-making about social and sexual behaviour.”
-(pp.8-9, HFLE Resource Guide for Teachers)
Here are its “Key Ideas” (p.13):
• “Sexual role behaviours and values of teachers and children are conditioned by family values and practices, religious beliefs, and social and cultural norms, as well as personal experiences.”
• “Educational interventions must augment the socialization role of the family and other social and religious institutions in order to assist in preventing/minimizing those expressions of sexuality that are detrimental to emotional and physical health and well-being.”
The detrimental “expressions of sexuality” are mostly those foisted by deviant adults on kids. This HFLE teaches kids to resist such advances from the earliest age on up. Here’s a sample scope and sequence for “Sexuality and Sexual Health.”
2. My body belongs to me.
2.1 My private parts.
2.2 The proper name for my private parts.
2.3 My body is special.
2.4 Good touchy/bad touch.
2.5 Who can I tell?
2. My body belongs to me.
2.1 My private parts.
2.2 Proper name for my private parts.
2.3 Inappropriate exposure of my private parts.
2.4 Reasons why my body is special.
2.5 Good touch/bad touch (places where abuse may occur/people who may be abusers).
2.6 Saying no.
2.7 Telling someone.
You can see how one grade builds on the previous grade. Kids learn only what they need to know. They aren’t encouraged to dwell on sex, only to resist risky expressions of it. Knowing that “my body belongs to me” helps them to avoid pressure and stay innocent. At the same time they learn to appreciate their identity as a boy or a girl, instead of being confused with a multiplicity of deviant “genders”. According to their own innate inclinations they answer questions like “What I like about being male/female.” And “What I like about the opposite sex.” This affirms the two sexual identities in a positive, non-erotic way.
The same HFLE Resource Guide for Teachers prepares kids for 17 “touchy situations” and how to stop them before they go any further. Here are 10 of them.
A friend of the opposite sex hugs you.
Your teacher gives you a kiss for doing a good job.
Your uncle asks you to sit on his lap at a family gathering.
Your mother’s boyfriend holds your hand.
Your teacher rubs your leg during homework help.
Your doctor examines you when you are completely undressed.
A family friend touches your breast.
Your best friend sleeps in the same bed as you during a sleepover.
The shopkeeper rubs his hand through your hair when you go to buy sweets.
Your brother’s friend kisses you on the lips.
Pro-LGBT curriculum actually encourages kids to indulge in such activities. But if we establish the above pro-family curriculum in schools, we will leave no place for LGBT advocates to get a foothold. Pray for us in Belize, that we will not be overcome by such evil, but overcome evil with good! (Rom. 12:21)
DailyInsight. We must lose our naivete while keeping our innocence (see Rom. 16:19-20).
