When school personnel encourage students to “come out as gay” and be “affirmed,”1 there is a serious risk of erroneously labeling students (who may merely be experiencing transient sexual confusion and/or engaging in sexual experimentation). Premature labeling may then lead some teenagers into harmful homosexual behaviors that they otherwise would not pursue.
There are grave health risks to the homosexual lifestyle. More details can be found at the following link:
