Lessons in Depravity

A study that documents the relationship between State sex education and the sexual revolution.

Sex education is a highly controversial subject.  The British Government believes that the answer to the teenage pregnancy crisis in the UK lies in providing children with yet more explicit sex education, starting at an even earlier age, with clear guidance on contraception and the ‘morning-after’ pill.  And to encourage children to use contraception, the Government allows doctors to prescribe contraceptives for under-16s without their parents’ knowledge or consent.  Opponents argue that sex education is not only ineffective in preventing teenage pregnancies, but that it encourages promiscuity.

Lessons in Depravity examines sex education in a historical context. As the story of the sex education movement unfolds, so the link between the messages of the sex educators and the ideology of the sexual revolution becomes increasingly clear.  Dr Williams explains that sex education, which has developed from the ideas of the sexual revolutionaries, is one of the great moral evils of our time in that it demoralises sexual conduct and misleads children with promises of ‘safer sex’. Within a framework of moral relativism children are presented with sexual facts and encouraged to make ‘informed’ choices whether to have sex or not.  Those who decide to have sex are helped to negotiate ‘safer sex’ with a partner.  And sex educators oppose the ‘moralisers’, asserting that ‘preaching’ makes it less likely that children will make the right sexual choices.

Lessons in Depravity exposes the moral relativism of sex education to the light of biblical truth.  In view of the inherent moral dangers, no parent can afford to stand back and leave the moral instruction of their children in the hands of State sex education.
