What should be taught in schools to children about nature or nurture in regards to homosexuality?
The Chicago Tribune article titled, in same-sex attraction, no 1 gene seen as responsible, reports: “We have found that it is effectively impossible to predict a person’s sexual behavior from their genome.
Another article reports the new law in Illinois to mandate teaching LGBTQ history.
The Purpose of This Post
Is to relate this study to who should decide what to teach their children sex education, a parent based on religious family values or government based on secular values.
Listen, my son, to your father’s instruction and do not forsake your mother’s teaching. (Proverb 1:8)
What’s My Point?
Frankly, I surmise most people including myself do not care what an adult chooses to do behind closed doors with a partner of their choosing.
However, they as parents object to their child being taught sex education that influences or indoctrinates their children to read a book in school in second grade about a prince marrying another prince and living happily ever after.
The study appears to raise doubts to the claim that homosexuality is exclusively a result of nature instead of nurture. So, what should be taught to school children about sex education is now even more controversial a subject.
Are children being influenced to believe in sex education classes contrary to parent religious values or fears that their children are being indoctrinated to engage in premarital sex?
In My Opinion
After reading numerous articles about the pros and cons of sex education in public secular schools I believe that school vouchers are the wisest way to solve this controversy.
In a previous post I explained why along with comments to answer why.
I also believe that children are being indoctrinated by romantic Hollywood movies and peers who may lead them to pornography depictions of sexual intercourse absent the religious Spiritual values of sex and marriage.
I agree that schools should teach appropriate age sex-education.
For anyone who believes that homosexuality and sex education is none of anyone’s business, it does become in part a valid concern because 60 million Americans now have contracted a sexual transmitted disease in the USA according to the CDC, Center of Disease Control of the USA.
While it may not affect a person physically, it does affect them economically because they have to pay higher taxes and insurance premiums to treat other people who contract sexual transmitted diseases.
As for school children who are highly impressionable until they mature, parents and not government should decide what is appropriate to teach their children about sex education.

Should parents decide if school vouchers are the best choice for their children rather than government school boards?
