At Boulder High School in Colorado, Joel Becker, an associate clinical professor of psychology at the University of California at Los Angeles spoke at an assembly to a group of students, some as young as fourteen years old. Mr. Becker in his speech said the following;

"I am going to encourage you to have sex and encourage you to use drugs appropriately. Why I am going to take that position is because you are going to do it anyway. I think as a psychologist and health educator, it is more important to educate you in a direction that you might actually stick to. So, I am going to stay mostly on with the sex side because that is the area I know more about. I want to encourage you to all have healthy, sexual behavior."

This was a mandatory event, meaning students were not given the option to opt out, nor were parents given any warning. Can you imagine the impact such irresponsible statements could have on a high school student? A seemingly accomplished adult male, in a position of authority, and honor, speaking to them and encouraging them to have sex and use drugs! These students are not yet old enough or mature enough in their thinking to be able to see Becker for what he is, an ignorant leftist liberal who is out to promote his decadent and perverted worldview, regardless of the cost to their lives.

And we are beyond the point where apologies from school officials are worth anything. It has become too easy and almost rote for the official to give the obligatory apology. For some of the victims, or students,(same thing in these cases) it is too late, the damage has been done. Without a doubt people like Joel Becker have been the cause of young people taking their first drug, or having their first sexual experience. For those students struggling and on the fence, all they needed was for some monster like this to come along and give them the push they needed to fall into the abyss of sex and drugs. Whats the answer? If you do not know by now you will never know!
