    is that no parent should have the right to keep their child in ignorance about how their body works. We all now know that STD's kill people. With HIV and HPV being known killers and anti-biotic resistant strains of other diseases evolving, it is really a public health concern even if you ignore the childs right to a complete education.

      their kid ignorant by demanding they not take sex ed. Because RELIGION is more important than someone not getting HIV, natch.  And it's not like they can actually keep the kid ignorant. There are libraries and the internet where the kid can learn the truth.

      Of course, if it were an abstinence only sex ed class, I would not want my child participating in it--because FACTS.  But then my kid would already know the facts.

      The last time we mixed religion and politics people got burned at the stake.
