Should schools show 8th graders how to put on a condom?

The Montgomery County School District in Maryland wants to start a new curriculum for sex education. Part of the curriculum would include a video that shows how to put on a condom and would also allow teachers to initiate discussions on homosexuality. This curriculum would start in 8th grade classes.

In a Washington Post article, U.S. District Court Judge Alexander Williams Jr, issued a temporary restraining on the curriculum stating that the course was biased in a number of ways.

"The government has no business putting its stamp of approval on one religion,'' he said, nothing that materials used to teach the courses highlight denominations that are more supportive of homosexuality. He also argued that the curriculum did not include counter points of view on the issue, noting that experience of ex-gays was omitted from the curriculum.
