Sex-ed pamphlet miseducates homosexers

by Jeremy Hooper

   Dothan, Alabama's Honeysuckle Middle School has reportedly been distributing a sex education pamphlet called "The Top 10 Questions Teenagers Ask About Sex," which responds to the question, "What can I do if I'm attracted to someone of the same sex?" by saying:

You probably have many friends that are of the same sex as yourself. Some teenagers today are confused about the differences between friendship and homosexuality. This confusion comes from how television and movies present sex. Too often, homosexuality is shown as a legitimate lifestyle equal to a heterosexual lifestyle. These same sex “unions” cannot provide an adequate means of achieving a genuine physical relationship with another human being because this type of “union” is contrary to the laws of nature. There can be no real union because same sex bodies do not even fit together. If you or someone you know is struggling with same sex attraction, you can find help and obtain more information at these websites: narth.com; peoplecanchange.com; and couragerc.net.

Though in the pamphlet writers' defense, they never said their "answers" were in the "top 10." Judging by their bold support of the concept that gays can change who they are, we'd classify this particular response as being the "lowest one."

The administration of Honeysuckle Middle did indicate that they'll review the pamphlet. Considering it's a pamphlet, that shouldn't take all that long; considering it's Alabama, we'll give them until next week.

Oh, we kid ya, Yellowhammer State.
