Humanists want LGBT issues taught in primary schools

The Christian Institute – February 16, 2018

A humanist campaign group wants four-year-olds to be taught about LGBT issues – and has branded religious views on sexuality “discriminatory”.

Humanists UK, formerly known as the British Humanist Association, issued a statement backing Government plans on new primary school Relationships Education.

Under the proposals, children will be taught about “different types of relationships”, which critics fear could include homosexuality, transsexualism and same-sex marriage.

The group went on to compare traditional religious views to racism, claiming they were an “unconscionable affront to the equality and dignity of all people”.
