In 1964, May 14, an organization was started in the State of New York called the Sex Information and Education Council of the United States, called SIECUS. It reached its full bloom on July 1, 1965. It broke in at 1855 Broadway in New York City. It is this organization that is influencing school systems all across America in sex education. Anybody knows that. It is either directly or indirectly responsible for the battle that is going on in almost every city of any size all across this great country concerning sex education in our school system. We call it SIECUS. Now its mother was a magazine called SEXOLOGY, which I will show in a few minutes. SIECUS, this sex education institute, was fostered by the editor and contributors and co-editors of a magazine called SEXOLOGY. SEXOLOGY is one of these magazines that was sold only behind the counter, a paperback that was considered pornography years ago. Now it has come to be a popular magazine because we live in an age when PLAYBOY, etc., can be popular. The people who founded, fostered and promoted the SEXOLOGY magazine are the people who are behind SIECUS. And those people are the ones who are behind the sex education program in our public school system. (Source)
SIECUS was founded by Dr. Mary Calderone, the former medical director of Planned Parenthood, with seed money from Hugh Hefner, the man who founded Playboy magazine. Like Kinsey, Mary believed there was an urgent need to break from traditional views of sexuality. Sex-ed had too much negativity–too much focus on unwanted pregnancy and diseases. The real problem, she insisted, was that society is puritanical and repressed. There were too many “no’s” in sex-ed.Her approach in SIECUS would be based on “yeses.” Proper sex-ed would teach children that from the day they are born they are sexual beings and that the expression of their sexuality is positive, natural and healthy. In a book written for parents, the founder of SIECUS said, “Children are sexual and think sexual thoughts and do sexual things.”1
Referring to Kinsey’s fraudulent research, Calderone stated that professionals who study children have affirmed the strong sexuality of the newborn. Kinsey conducted research with pedophiles and other unseemly characters.”
Kinsey’s use of sexually deviant research subjects skewed his findings. He claimed to have proven that 10 percent of the population was homosexual and that the majority of Americans were secretly engaging in unconventional sexual practices and infidelity.
There was public outcry after Dr. Judith Reisman, one of the foremost experts on Kinsey, exposed the fact that Kinsey’s research relied on the work of sexual deviants who sexually abused and tortured infants and children to induce orgasms, timing their occurrences as part of his sexual “research.”2
This twisted research was the foundation of the sex-education revolution that began in the United States and has spread throughout the world. Thus was born the philosophy behind modern sexuality education today, which claims that children are sexual from birth and therefore any restrictions on their sexuality, or withholding of sexual information from them, is a violation of their rights.
Dr. Grossman continues:
“The co-founder of SIECUS [and co-author of the original Kinsey reports on males and females, Wardell Pomeroy,] said that religious taboos were highly restrictive, that our whole belief system needed to be reconsidered. Traditional religion wooed people in and prescribed boundaries for thinking. Boundaries were no good. He said the boundaries needed to be expanded. And, in fact, he said that physical pleasure has worth as a moral value. There were officials within SIECUS who were, in fact, so radical that they argued publicly for relaxing the taboos against adult-child sexuality, even incest.”
This was documented in a Time magazine article in 1980 called “Attacking the Last Taboo,” in which Pomeroy, Vice President of SIECUS’s Board of Directors stated, “It is time to admit that incest need not be a perversion or a symptom of mental illness,” he says. “Incest between . . . children and adults . . . can sometimes be beneficial.” John Money, also a SIECUS board member said, “Childhood sexual experience such as being the partner of a relative or of an older person need not necessarily affect the child adversely.” Time magazine called these people the “pro-incest lobby.”3
To summarize: In 1947, sexologist Alfred Kinsey founded the Institute for Sex Research at Indiana University now known as the Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender, and Reproduction. The Kinsey Institute then created SIECUS in 1964 as its educational arm. Its first director was Dr. Mary Calderone, the former medical director of Planned Parenthood. SIECUS has since become the most significant driving force behind sexuality education in the United States, and according to a tax filing with the IRS, “promotion of sexuality education and individual sexual rights,” is the primary purpose of SIECUS.
This brings us to the role of SIECUS in the promotion of CSE internationally today. UNESCO now works in partnership with SIECUS and acknowledges that a former director of SIECUS is one of the principle authors of its International Guidelines on Sexuality Education, first released in 2009 in draft form. After a huge public outcry at the inappropriate and graphic nature of the Guidelines, UNESCO revised them, removing some of the most explicit language and has now published a somewhat less controversial version which will be examined in a subsequent section of this report. While many believed the original Guidelines were removed from circulation, they are still available online at an official UN website.
The SIECUS curriculum initiates children into the ideas that homosexuality, bisexuality, and trans-sexuality are normal and healthy lifestyles, and that abortion is a convenient and acceptable method of birth control. Moreover, it is teaching your children that those who disagree with these views – even on religious grounds – are narrow-minded bigots on the fringe of society. It encourages children to shun the values of their parents if those values contradict those held by SIECUS.
Demers tells us: ”This anti-parent, anti-family curriculum (on sex-ed for children), known as BAPP (Becoming a Person Program) was designed by Fr. Walter J. Imbrioski. He held the dubious credentials of serving on the SIECUS Board of Directors 1968-1970. In 1975, after many years of teaching and writing on human sexuality, Fr. Imbrioski decided to forego his vocation and his vow of celibacy to become Mr. Imbrioski; he married his BAPP co-author Frances Imzec.”
Eventually the sex-ed nightmare became known in the U.S. as “Growing in Love, Kindergarten through Grade Eight.” This Our Sunday Visitor curriculum was approved by the Bishops’ Committee of 2001-2003.” When parents inevitably complained, they were told, ”Who are you to tell us what is good for your children?”’
One of the consequences of this degenerate sex-ed history is well known. The Cardinal Law pedophile scandal in 2002 and, in its wake, the exposure of corrupt priests and the Hierarchy who themselves either became pedophiles or executed the cover-ups, fits exactly with what Our Lady said at La Salette: “The priests have become cesspools of impurity.”
