No, sadly. The story of oral sex between 4- and 5-year-olds at the First Lutheran Church of Carson School in Carson, Calif., broke earlier this week, and millions more heard about it today on Rush Limbaugh’s radio show. The school is scheduled to close down on Friday, but as ABC News reports, “the school’s closing was related to the director’s resigning for personal reasons, and insisted the alleged sexual incidents had nothing to do with the closure.”
The California Department of Social Services cited the school for having an improper student-teacher ratio. A lack of supervision created an environment where preschoolers “would engage in oral sex during nap time, in the tunnel slide on the playground and in an outside bathroom,” according to attorney Greg Owen. Needless to say, Americans were disgusted and outraged by the allegations.
We live in a society where preschoolers engage in oral sex. Let that marinate

The shocking nature of the story has people talking (and holding out hope that it’s not true), but sadly, there’s more where that came from. How bad have things become that something could make these student/teacher sex scandals seem not quite so bad in comparison?
