Commenting on a video that shows how pro-LGBT propaganda is being taught on a popular YouTube-based series for kids, U.S. Bishop Joseph Strickland, who oversees the Catholic Diocese of Tyler, Texas, tweeted that this so-called education is "evil" and constitutes "CHILD ABUSE."
"We must STOP THIS INSANITY!!" said the bishop.
In the episode, sex educators Nadine and Eva are speaking to a classroom of students who look to be eight or nine years old. Some of the things they tell the students include, "Gender is how you feel on the inside about whether you're a boy or a girl. ... Our genitals actually don't determine our gender. So, some people born with vulvas can be boys."
The sex educators then introduce an "extra special visitor to sex-ed school," a purple-haired transgender "man" -- a woman who has transitioned into a man. In the scene, "he" tells a group of about 10 young students, "I have been through the spectrum, if we were to say a spectrum like boys and girls, I have been everywhere in between. ... In my 20s, I decided to become a drag king."
The video is very explicit about male and female genitalia and shows the young kids placing simulated penises and vaginas on stuffed dolls.
Commenting on a shorter version of the video that was posted on Twitter, Bishop Strickland said, "This video shares an insane and evil message that is destructive to the lives of innocent children."
"In a sane society it would be called what it is CHILD ABUSE and the people propagating this insanity would be prosecuted," said the bishop. "We must STOP THIS INSANITY!!!"
In its description of its series, "Sex-Ed School," Shaftesbury says, "Sex-Ed School is a fun new web series for kids to get real info from experts and discover all the answers they want to know now. A series that explores the birds and the bees with ease in today’s world."
