Top Croatian Court kills Kinsey Sex Education Nationally

American expert, Dr Judith Reisman, campaigned for truth for parents in Croatia.

As Reisman has documented in her book, “Kinsey: Crimes & Consequences,” Kinsey’s controversial reports 50 years ago on human sexuality “involved illegal sexual experimentation on several hundred young children.”

The highest court in Croatia has decided to throw out an aggressively left-wing sex education program for students in their country after Dr. Judith Reisman, a WND columnist, and author of books including “Kinsey: Crimes & Consequences” and “Sexual Sabotage,” warned parents about its faults.

WND reported earlier this year that the region that survived a communist regime and emerged from war and violence into a form of democracy was being torn apart by a social civil war.

It was all over a dead sex researcher who based much of his research on pedophiles – Alfred Kinsey.

Reisman, who was the principal investigator for a Department of Justice research project on child sex abuse, told WND at the time she was working with attorneys in the former Yugoslav republic on a lawsuit against those who falsely accused her of being a Holocaust denier, a criminal offense in Croatia, and defamed her by calling her a “walking mockery.”


The genesis of the story is a move by the Croatian government to impose a Kinsey-based sex education program on school children without parental input or alternatives.


As Reisman has documented in her book, “Kinsey: Crimes & Consequences,” Kinsey’s controversial reports 50 years ago on human sexuality “involved illegal sexual experimentation on several hundred young children.”


His survey, she wrote, “was based on a nonrepresentative group of Americans – including hundreds of sex offenders, prostitutes, prison inmates and exhibitionists.”


She told WND one of the authors of the proposed sex curriculum in Croatia, Aleksandar Stulhofer, is linked to Kinsey’s research and the ongoing work of an institute that bears Kinsey’s name.


Now reports from Croatia confirm that its top court suspended the use of those sex education lessons – ruling that the government refused to consult parents in its effort to introduce the explicit lessons.


Judge Mato Arlovic noted, “Enabling parents to take part in the preparation of a curriculum is a country’s constitutional obligation.”


Several groups from within Croatia had protested to the court that the sex education lessons violated the constitution because educators imposed them without parental involvement.


The decision means sex education classes for school students will be suspended.


An estimated 90 percent of the 4.2 million Croatians are Roman Catholics whose church objects to the lessons.


WND reported earlier that according to Project Censored, a respected Croatian journalist working for a state-run network, Karolina Vidovic-Kristo, had a story Dec. 29, 2012, on the government’s sex education program.


Project Censored noted: “The sex-education issue has been a topic of widespread debate in Croatia, in the media and by the people on line in various forums. The program was well researched, professionally produced and of significant interest to the citizens of Croatia.


“The program, as are most Croatians, was critical of the government policy and the foundations on which the [sex education] program is based,” the report said.


Within 24 hours, she was sanctioned by the state-run network HRT/HTV, which suspended her from duties, canceled her show and publicly threatened her with “strong measures.”


Reisman then was invited to Croatia to speak in support of Vidovic-Kristo and underwent what a report from the regional website called “the staunch and aggressive, at times shockingly rude and utterly uncivilized opponents of Dr. Reisman’s views.”


The report said: “The pinnacle of such intolerance was when the faculty’s dean [at the Faculty of Political Sciences in Zagreb], Nenad Zakosec, came out and aggressively, shouted at Reisman before hundreds of students many of which had shouted insults and barraged bigoted questions/comments): ‘What are you doing here!’”


Croatian blogger Ina Vukic wrote, “It is no wonder that Reisman said later that she had never before in her life been confronted by so many bullies as during this visit to Croatia.”


Reisman told WND that some in the media who were attacking her worked for a local print publication whose parent company also owns a Playboy publishing franchise in Croatia. The publisher is Europa Press Holding, which produces newspapers Jutarnji List and Slobodna Dalmacija in addition to Playboy, according to reports.


While officials, she reported, “said I had no right to say anything that I said,” the people of Croatia responded with overwhelming thankfulness that she was putting into words their concerns about the sex-education demands.


“I couldn’t go anywhere without someone coming up and apologizing for the behavior of these hooligans,” she told WND.


She said she was received by some government officials as well as leaders of both the Jewish and Catholic communities. She said she fears for Croatia, which as a historically conservative country has a low rate of sexually transmitted diseases…

Just last year, Reisman, said pedophilia advocates are using the same strategy that was successfully employed to make homosexuality a classroom subject for small children in the nation’s public schools.

As WND reported, Reisman attended a symposium held by the “minor-attracted people” advocacy group B4U-ACT to disseminate “accurate information” on the position that pedophilia is just one more alternative sexual orientation.

“If a foreign country came in and did this to our nation, the nation would be outraged,” Reisman said about the B4U-Act event, also attended by J. Matt Barber, vice president of Liberty Counsel Action.

The speakers urged the removal of pedophilia from the American Psychiatric Association’s list of mental defects in its Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders.

Reisman explained the same strategy was used by homosexual activists in the 1970s when same-sex attractions were removed from the APA’s list of disorders.

Eventually, the legalization of “gay marriage,” the mandatory homosexuality lessons in public schools and the policy of allowing open homosexuality in the U.S. military resulted.

“Dr. John Sadler (University of Texas) argued that diagnostic criteria for mental disorders should not be based on concepts of vice since such concepts are subject to shifting social attitudes and doing so diverts mental-health professions from their role as healers,” the B4U-ACT organization said in a report about its symposium in Baltimore.

Another celebrity was Fred Berlin of Johns Hopkins who argued in favor of “acceptance of and compassion for people who are attracted to minors,” the report continued.

The report pointedly referred to “minor-attracted people” in reference to pedophiles and explained that the concerns can be resolved with “accurate information.” Richard Kramer, who represented B4U-ACT at the event, contended listing pedophilia as a disorder stigmatizes the “victims” of the lifestyle choice.

WND also previously reported when a campaign by Reisman, now a visiting professor of law at Liberty University, began taking her seminars on the fallacies of Kinsey to Rome, Ireland and London.
