Our friends Judie Brown at American Life League and John Henry at LifeSiteNews have organized a petition to Pope Francis to intervene on the harmful sex ed initiative coming from the Pontifical Council for the Family:
To: His Holiness Pope Francis and Archbishop Vincenzo Paglia, president of the Pontifical Council for the Family
We, the undersigned, are scandalized and disheartened by the Pontifical Council for the Family’s new project known as The Meeting Point: Project for Affective and Sexual Formation.
This project has many dangerous flaws. For example:
It fails to state in clear language that parents are the primary educators of their children.
It never mentions Christ’s teaching on marriage.
It never names or denounces sexual behaviors such as fornication, masturbation, and homosexual activity.
It fails to provide any instruction on the Commandments, sin, and the sacraments.
It uses pictures of life-size naked sculptures to point out the physical differences (including genitals) between a man and a woman in a mixed classroom setting.
It shows suggestive and provocative images.
It recommends sexually explicit movies as catalysts to discussion.
Holy Father and Archbishop Paglia, we humbly beg you to protect and guide your flock by retracting this project and restating the Church’s perennial teachings on both the primacy of parents as the educators of their children and the proper approach of extreme caution to this task as explained in Familiaris Consortio.
Thanks to Judie and John Henry for staying on top of this one.
