Stonewall: ‘Teach LGBT issues in Maths, Science and Geography’

Secondary schools across the country are being urged to discuss gay sex in science lessons and promote LGBT issues across the curriculum.

‘Creating an LGBT-Inclusive Curriculum’ offers advice for twelve subjects including English, Maths, Science, Geography and PE.

The Christian Institute warned that the guide revealed Stonewall were attempting to rewrite the national curriculum to promote their LGBT agenda.

Sex

Ruth Hunt, Chief Executive of Stonewall, said it shows how teachers “can easily and naturally integrate LGBT issues” throughout the curriculum.

Science teachers are told to, “Refer to different types of sex, including same-sex sex, and talk about different ways to practice safe sex.”

Maths teachers are encouraged to include “references to LGBT people and different family structures” in their lessons.

LGBT campaigners

In Religious Education, teachers are advised to “discuss topics in a balanced way”, but the document goes on to say teachers should:

– “Look at religious texts and the different ways they can be interpreted”.

– “Explore the work of people campaigning for LGBT equality in faith communities”.

They are also told to use Stonewall’s own research “into the experiences of LGBT people”.

Hostile takeover

Ciarán Kelly, Deputy Director of The Christian Institute, said Stonewall were attempting a “hostile takeover” of education.

“By issuing this guide, Stonewall appears to be trying to take over the national curriculum in a bid to advertise themselves.

“Pupils should be free from this unnecessary interference and not be put under pressure to endorse the LGBT agenda.”
