Barack Obama believes teaching kindergarten kids the difference between “good touching” and “bad touching” is “the right thing to do.” Young children, Obama believes, ought to be armed with the knowledge an adult has no right to see or touch their genitalia.
It’s too bad Obama used the phrase “sex education” to refer to such lessons, because by doing so he gave spinsters like Sean Hannity the sound bytes necessary to mislead and horrify religious conservatives. Unfortunately, when cave dwelling conservatives hear “sex ed,” they picture pornography classes where kids are taught why some people prefer doggy-style to missionary.
Obama’s point was that sex predators and pedophiles often prey on a child’s trusting naivety. This fact should be well-known to at least some folks on the priestly Right.
