A dispute has erupted across Scotland over a proposal by activists to impose mandatory LGBT training on children as young as 5 years old.

A homosexual-activist group called Time for Inclusive Education launched a petition demanding children in their earliest years of schooling “learn about homosexual, bisexual and transgender issues.”

But Rev. David Robertson, moderator of the Free Church of Scotland, calls the proposal a “Trojan horse to impose an ideological perspective on all pupils.”

His comments were reported by the Christian Institute, which has opposed such plans.

The proposal already has the backing of the National Union of Teachers, which has endorsed an “LGBT History Month” as well as an “inclusive” curriculum.

A spokeswoman for the group, Christine Blower, wants everyone to support the idea.

In an age when Christianity is openly under attack, one book that champions the Bible as absolute truth is surprising even longtime Christians with amazing facts many people simply don’t know are included in the pages of Holy Scripture.

“This includes making it compulsory for all schools’ sex education policies to include a positive portrayal of same sex relationships, promoting LGBT History Month in all schools, and encouraging schools to develop a curriculum that is inclusive of LGBT issues,” she said in the institute report.

In the U.S., California already has adopted demands to portray homosexuals only positively in class. Critics have pointed out the restriction makes it impossible for teachers to address the truth about a variety of homosexual issues, such as the high rate of HIV/AIDS in the community.

Simon Calvert, the Christian Institute’s deputy director for public affairs, warned the demand for such indoctrination “is itself an act of intolerance toward mainstream Christians and their beliefs.”

“I wonder whether Christian members of the NUT who have paid their dues can expect any help from the NUT when their jobs are on the line,” he said.

Robertson told the institute the plan would be a violation of the rights of Christian parents.

“Human rights legislation says that ‘the state shall respect the right of parents to ensure such education and teaching in conformity with their own religious and philosophical convictions,'” he pointed out.

“The petitioner’s demand for statutory teaching of such topics without provision for parents and pupils who disagree is in direct conflict,” he said.

“We believe that the real object of the petition is to indoctrinate school pupils with one particular perspective on moral and sexual ethics and one which is contrary to mainstream Christianity. We believe this is a Trojan horse to impose an ideological perspective on all pupils, whether they want it or not.”

The Herald in Scotland quoted a homosexual activist saying he was victimized by “homophobic language” while attending class in a Roman Catholic secondary school.

His complaint made it clear that even church-sponsored schools would be required to teach only positive portrayals of behavior that the Bible defines as an “abomination.”
