“Too bad,” said a conservative friend of mine last week, “but things are certainly not going well for our side.” I asked him what he meant. He cited two things: First, the failure to gain substantial media profile for the discovery of grossly inappropriate material being pushed on children as young as seven in the sex clubs the government is promoting in the public schools. Second, the revival of the old right wing split when Wildrose leader Brian Jean publicly and sharply attacked the newly elected Conservative leader Jason Kenney for his supporting the rights of parents over the dictates of the NDP government, and the ever-widening aspirations of the gay movement.

I told him why I thought him wrong in both cases. In fact, I believe it was a week of two great triumphs for the parental cause.

Take first, their exposé that the government-funded site was instructing children on how to perform oral sex, masturbate, and learn various positions for homosexual and sadomasochism practices. True, the print media ignored the story, a negligence that will one day be cited as a model of journalistic cowardice. Who did not ignore it, however, was the government itself. Item by item they pulled all this garbage from the site, leaving on it some fine thoughts on the inherent rights of sexual “minorities,” and other such high-minded things that will offend few and interest fewer. The requisite passwords will probably then give the students access to the denied material. So the parents will have accomplished precisely nothing, right?

Wrong! Ask yourself: Why did the University of Alberta’s Institute for Sexual Minority Studies and Services, which runs the website for the government, put all this stuff on the site to begin with? It’s part of the same strategy through which the gay movement has helped turn the sexual mores of western society upside down. To commit sodomy was a criminal offence in Canada until 1969. Today in some jurisdictions it’s a statutory offence to so much as criticize it. This and numerous other “perversions” have been transformed into “lifestyles,” and public “shunning,” which not long ago was the fate of the sexual “deviant” now becomes the fate of the sexual conservative. This transformation was a masterpiece of indoctrination, conducted largely through the entertainment media with the willing aid of “advanced” public school educators, like the Institute’s Dr. Kris Wells, and historically ignorant legislators which includes pretty well all of them.

But an absolute necessity of this process is to gain social acceptability for the previously unacceptable, in fact unconscionable. “I guess what we’re being called upon to do here is okay,” the child reasons to himself. Sure, some narrow and “|hateful” people may still deplore it, but even the school system’s in favour of it. Look here. It’s all right here on this public website. So it’s okay, it’s okay.” Thus the child, even more so the adolescent, can be led into something which might well bring on an early death, all thanks to the government of Alberta. Why don’t they teach them to smoke instead? It’s probably safer.
