Pastor Danny Banks warned members of The Christian Church in Myrtle Beach, S.C. over the weekend that allowing their children attend sex education courses in public schools was like letting kids play with rattlesnakes and cobras.
In a sermon on Sunday that aired on WFXB, Banks said that the lies of “humanism, secular humanism, [the] new age movement, [and] liberalism” were being “read and spoke across America through the television, airwaves and radio.”
“It’s like a viper’s egg,” he cautioned. “You see, a viper is a very dangerous thing. I know people who wouldn’t think at all of letting their little children go play with a bunch of cobras or rattlesnakes, but they put them in environments every day and the vipers are all around them, striking of what we believe, teaching them in morality.”
“Sex education today doesn’t teach you to abstain, it gives you a free condom,” Banks insisted. “It tells you not to get pregnant. That’s what it teaches. I’ve read their book, teaching young people today in schools and their families that it’s okay now to be heterosexual or homosexual or whatever-sexual it is.”
“When is the last time you heard anybody in schools teaching, preaching even in churches to abstain that which is evil, to save yourself for the beautiful thing called marriage?” he asked. “It’s like viper eggs, they are everywhere around us. Pornography is everywhere in our society.”

Trump is ‘losing it’ and ‘devolving down into rabbit holes of conspiracy theories’: Conservative TV host
On Monday, conservative CNN talk show host S. E. Cupp slammed President Donald Trump for his behavior amid the coronavirus pandemic.
"I think no matter who the president is, there's always going to be someone criticizing the response to a disaster," said anchor Brianna Keilar. "But something that has been true since the beginning of this is that the president really had a real opportunity, handed one, to unify people, to lead, to set a tone, and he's really squandering it, isn't he?"
"I think we should say, Brianna, this has long gone past offensive, and distasteful. I think what we're seeing is the president losing it," said Cupp. "I don't think that the president's behavior is that of a healthy, stable, balanced person. That he can't focus all of his energy and efforts and attention on this global pandemic, on securing the physical and economic safety and health of this country, is very alarming. Instead, devolving down these rabbit holes of conspiracy theories, baseless conspiracy theories as you pointed out, attacking women for their looks and their weight, you know, threatening governors, one in Michigan for mail-in voting, another in North Carolina for not guaranteeing a full house at the RNC."
Trump ally: It’s ‘unrealistic’ to say president shouldn’t golf just because people are dying of COVID-19
On CNN Monday, former Trump adviser and Republican lobbyist David Urban defended President Donald Trump's decision to take a golf outing as coronavirus deaths approached 100,000.
"Every death is horrible," Urban said. However, "people die in America every day, and just to expect the president to sit frozen in his office is unrealistic."
The US approaches 100,000 coronavirus deaths, while this weekend President Trump played golf.
