Mozambique Removes From Schools A Book That Discussed Homosexuality

Mozambique Removes From Schools A Book That Discussed Homosexuality

Mozambique will remove a seventh-grade natural science textbook from schools after outrage on social media over content that discussed masturbation and homosexuality.

Pupils in the southern African country have studied “The Secret of Life” by Portuguese publisher Texto Editores for the past 18 years.

However, sections of a chapter on sexual orientation and masturbation went viral on social media after being posted on Facebook last Thursday.

The education ministry responded by withdrawing the book, with controversial parts to be struck off in a new edition to be rolled out later this year. Education Ministry spokeswoman Gina Guibunda said on Tuesday:

For us, the topic of sexuality is important and should continue to be addressed.

She said that sex education will continue to be taught but “in a way that does not create problems in society”.

A section of the book taught to children aged between 12 and 13 reads “sometimes it is more comfortable to have a relationship with someone of the same sex. It is called a homosexual relationship.”

Homosexuality is a taboo in many African countries and is an offence that attracts huge penalties.

27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

Issues of LGBTQI+ are not a new topic. Homo****uality cannot be wished away or avoided because it will keep happening just like adultery, fornication or drug use. In fact Homo****uality has been there for thousands of years, even the bible mentions it. Its better to learn about it in a scientific way through **** education or biology than to avoid the topic completely. Noone chooses who they are. Let God be the judge and judge not.

There are greater sins than that for which Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed. Those who hear the gospel invitation calling to repentance, and heed not, are more guilty than the dwellers in the vale of Siddim. The fate of Sodom is a solemn admonition, not merely to those guilty of outbreaking sin, but to all who are trifling with Heaven-sent light and privileges. EP 103.3

Ive always asked myself these questions,who created the transgender,was it God?Some of you people don't know there are people born with two ****ual organs in place i.e penis and **** on one person. Some might be a ****y looking woman but down there with a male genital, the penis and it can be vice versa ,a man with a female genital.Its shocking but true,but who created these people and what happened.If its God,was it a mistake?

This stupid Mboko does not even know they are transgander,people with 2 organs or a man with female organ and a female with man organ...Its not in the mind young man,its just that in Africa some things are taboo to discuss.
I know a girl who impregnated another girl,i didn't believe but when i searched @ Google i then discovered the Crazy Side of world.There are people with 2 mating organs or a very muscular man with a female organ or vice verser.
