Scotland to embed LGBTI teaching across curriculum
Scotland will become the first country in the world to embed the teaching of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex rights in the school curriculum, in what campaigners have described as a historic moment.
State schools will be required to teach pupils about the history of LGBTI equalities and movements, as well as tackling homophobia and transphobia and exploring LGBTI identity, after ministers accepted in full the recommendations of a working group led by the Time for Inclusive Education (TIE) campaign. There will be no exemptions or opt-outs to the policy, which will embed LGBTI inclusive education across the curriculum and across subjects and which the Scottish government believes is a world first....

sc, I shall be interested when you have the time, in your answer.
But I have just been listening to a 64 and one half minute sermon by Alan Cairns concerning doing work in God's way, and if we do not, but try another way, he called it (Isaiah 31:1) going down to Egypt for help.
He concluded the message with a question such as, "Where did all the blessing of God go?"
And his answer was Jeremiah 2:13.
And the answer to Jeremiah 2:13 was Amos 5:4 and 2 Chronicles 7:14.

Good morning sc, and how are you, sister?
It is true that judgment begins at the house of God, that is, his elect, his blood-bought ones, his redeemed. These are the ones he chastises, because they are his sons.
So for sure they are not blind, because Christ has given them light and opened their eyes, they are alive from the dead.

Thank you Christopher for your input. Maybe I missed something...but I didn't see a holier than thou attitude in Susan's post. Judgment begins at the house of the Lord. I think that one would have to be blind to not see Judgment upon us.
This all reminds me of the old hymn, "My Faith Has Found a Resting Place" with the first verse: My faith has found a resting place, Not in device nor creed; I trust the Ever-living One, His wounds for me shall plead. I need no other argument, I need no other plea; It is enough that Jesus died, And that He died for me.
Less than one. Susan, if you donâ€™t want folks to take a belligerent attitude, maybe you should be a bit more humble yourself, and not act like Moses hurling the tables of the Law. If you had left out the first three paragraphs of your post, maybe the rest of it would have been better received. I am sure you and Erik mean well, but the holier-than-thou approach is a turnoff and can actually close peopleâ€™s minds to the things you have to say. Sorry for my disrespectful attitude. I really will try to behave, although I admit Iâ€™m not very good at it.
But Susan came back!!! Most people of her â€śspiritual â€ś stature would not deign to come to such a crowd of publicans and sinners as us and give their valuable time to such a demeaning task. But she came back!! Thanks for reminding us how, want to use your verbiage here thanks get it right, here it is, evil, sinful , and messed up we are. Our priorities are in the wrong place and our allegiances are way out of whack. No wonder we are under the judgment of God and the disdain of Susan
Hello my dear brethren in Christ Jesus our Lord and Savior. All glory to God.
I had work to do and it seemed to me that you all had your minds really made up so I left you to yourselves and see what you have done?
Do you feel very righteous now?
The fact that the church is not upholding the law of God but following after laws made by men is the basic sin and reason for this judgment of God.
His judgment is to allow nations like Scotland to approve sodomy and then we ourselves are mired in the mess we have not risen up against.
We allowed this to happen because churches are so busy entertaining themselves and patting themselves on the back that we are not fighting against sin, either in ourselves or our neighbors.
"Thou shalt not hate thy brother in thine heart: thou shalt in any wise rebuke thy neighbour, and not suffer sin upon him."
Sodomy is against the law of God. Will we support a nation that supports evil? The civil magistrate is one described in Romans 13 as "a minister of God to thee for GOOD...he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doest EVIL."
We are not to follow after rulers that do evil. We are not to follow after Hitlers or Stalins. We are not to follow after sodomites.
Thanks SC...I hadn't even noticed the extra letter. I work off my smartphone, so didnt catch it on a smaller screen. Inter***...more ridiculousness, but society doesn't view it as such, do they. I know I sound like a broken record here, but just look at the repercussions of allowing the sodomites to legally wed...just consider the wide ranging, and far reaching snowball effect it's had since. Almost immediately, they began to infect the public school system with LGBTQ guest speakers...even speaking to kindergardners, around the same time, their books hit the classrooms, and working their way up to all we see going on right now. They never just wanted to be accepted, able to love and be loved...they had a sinister agenda.
A blessed nation? Maybe once upon a time, but our continued prosperity shouldn't be fooling anyone, and it's no spiritual gauge of approval, or a slap on the back for a job well done.
â€śThe like figure where unto even baptism doth also now save us (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God,) by the resurrection of Jesus Christ:â€ť
I see "lgbt" has added another letter, "i". Which letter of the alphabet will be next?

Neil, I have visited a few Anglican churches (in England, where they are called Church of England or CofE for short) and also a few in Wales, (where they are called Church in Wales), and I have noticed that the size of the font was quite sufficient for a baptism of babies by immersion, indeed I believe this was the original practice. Today though, I believe it is normal to dab water on the forehead three times, reciting, "in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost."
Baptism by immersion identifies the believer with the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Iâ€™ve been to quite a few funerals, but Iâ€™ve yet to see a decedent buried by sprinkling or pouring dirt on his head. However, Iâ€™ve never been to a Presbyterian funeral, so maybe thatâ€™s how they do it. Christopher, Iâ€™m appalled by your suggestion that I and my kinfolk take â€śmonthlyâ€ť baths. We would never consent to wasting that much water.
