MERRIT ISLAND – Last year, I was a Senior at Satellite High. In about March of 1995, during AIDS Awareness Week, all the students including myself attended the AIDS-Awareness classes on “safe-sex.”
In this class, three HIV-positive AIDS patients spoke to the high school students. The AIDS patients taught the students that condoms are 100 percent effective and that it is perfectly safe to have sex with their partners using condoms. One of these patients, an open homosexual, stated that even with AIDS, he continues to have sex, but now uses a condom. (Who knows what he really does?) The implication of the class is that unmarried and homosexual sex is just fine if a condom is used.
I’ve heard that these safe-sex classes are now taught every year in all the Brevard schools, and that it is a growing school program!
If parents really knew that their taxes were being used to support this deviant type of sex-ed class, they would be very shocked. Most parents probably think that this is a problem in New York or San Francisco, but not little Brevard County. Most parents probably assume their elected officials and school administrators are acting responsibly.
