USA: Abstinence high school speaker ousted: Message called ‘hate speech’

Many public schools across the nation have regularly invited speakers from Planned Parenthood to inform high school and middle school students about under-age and premarital “safe sex” and how to use various forms of contraception, but when one abstinence speaker was scheduled to inform students in southeastern Pennsylvania about the rewards of saving sex until marriage and the dangers of casual sex, her speech was quickly cancelled, with critics calling it “hate speech.”

Devoting her life to informing America’s youth about the dangers of casual sexual activity, Pam Stenzel was looking forward to sharing her message with Warwick High School and Warwick Middle School students on November 19, but she was quickly informed that her two presentations were cancelled because a handful of people considered her abstinence standpoint as offensive.

There was far from an outpouring of protests — as only a few outspoken parents and students raised any objections to Stenzel’s message — but because of reported bullying from parents over the issue to school officials and biased media coverage, hundreds of students were unable to glean from Stenzel’s views on chastity and wholesome living.

The school district issued a statement explaining why Stenzel’s two daytime presentations were cancelled.

“[The cancellations were made] in order to protect the students and staff of Warwick School District from the credible threats to obstruct, intimidate and disrupt the educational process and rights of the students and families who elected to attend the school day presentations,” district officials announced…

…The loud outcry of a few who took offense to Stenzel’s advice to abstain from all sexual activity before marriage reached various media channels.

One local resident was livid that Stenzel was originally scheduled to speak to students on a public school campus and she thought that the opt-out alternative was justnot enough. She went as far to call abstinence training “hate speech.”

“[The ability to opt out] completely misses the point,” local resident Allison Lakehart-Childs expressed to Superintendent April Hershey in a letter. “I do not want any students exposed to Ms. Stenzel’s hate speech.”

Leftist parents also had a problem with Stenzel communicating the message of purity until marriage…

    A bit of abstinence might see the feral left population decline. Can’t have that it would be worse than having an education system that educates.

    And of course we have the cbc this morning all excited about the Canadian Olympic association going all out to promote homosexuality in its sports programs, including having LGBT athletes going in to schools to promote homosexual sex. I’m sure wynne will have that as part of her new grooming course.

    Letting teens know that *not* having sex is an option. What a radical, hateful idea.

      Yes. It’s the tool of the oppressive Patriarchy…

    Karl Marx said that religion is the opiate of the masses. For Liberals, sex is the opiate. Promise them a chance to screw, and they will sell their birthright for a pottage. Liberal followers have already done that. Nothing must be allowed to interfere with that message. They must sexualize our children, so they can have access to to them.

    We absolutely must exterminate the Liberal Vermin that infest our school system. If they succeed in corrupting our children, then we are lost.

    Sorry about that, good teachers, but you have to harangue, harass, and if necessary, terrorize the Liberal Scum out of the system. If you are not part of the solution, you are part of the problem. No prisoners. No quarter.
