Ruben Diaz Denounces Sex Education

New York state Sen. Ruben Diaz, who calls himself "Senator Reverend" in his press releases, has come out against NYC's proposed sex education curriculum.
In matters involving intimacy and human sexuality, parents have the right and the responsibility to be the primary educators. Many parents teach their children that these are private topics not to be discussed casually or in group settings. Now there is no formal arena for formal parental input. There is no opportunity for public hearings. There are no requirements that these regulations be open to public review and comment. No accountability to the public, to the parents, and certainly not the children. How sad for us all.

Diaz's home district of the Bronx has one of the highest HIV infection rates in the nation. But that's apparently OK with the Senator Reverend.
