Everyone but the church accepting the reality of tabled sex issues with young people who are speeding up down that road. Anglican Church of Kenya, has put on the big shoe proposing the development of a church-based curriculum to teach children sex education in accordance with Christian values.

Speaking in Kenya Christian Professionals forum Reverend Tom Otieno, said with proper information, the church and parents are able to handle comprehensive sex education without the kind of parameters given in the current curriculum, expressing concern over comprehensive sex education stating that the curriculum poses the same danger as pornography.

“We must not fall into the trap of throwing stones and not providing solutions. We must task ourselves with realistic targets to come up with an alternative curriculum,” he said.

Commenting on the advancement on the of the LGBTQ agenda, sexual revolution, comprehensive sex education and legalization of abortion on demand, the Reverend noted that the church’s fear comes from introducing sex information to children without causing them to have an unseen negative interest in sex, faulting the curriculum. That the Bible has given guidance on what should and should not be taught regarding sex.

Under the curriculum, children from the age of five years will be taught about masturbation, the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender movement, contraceptives and abortion.

“We do not get married to have sex. We get married to have children and sex becomes a necessary component. Children will be taught how to enjoy sex and to experiment from the age of ten and since pregnancy is considered a bad side effect of sex, adolescents are offered contraceptives and safe abortion options,” Dr. Wahome Ngare defended the curriculum.

The Reverend cautioned that education cannot be used to legitimize what is not right and comprehensive sex education is being used to market sexual revolution globally.
