Archbishop Aguer denounces invasion of ideologies in Argentinean schools

.- Archbishop Hector Aguer of La Plata has denounced the government for imposing new materials on Argentinean schools that are based on controversial ideologies instead of the comprehensive formation of students.

In his television program, “Keys to a Better World,” the archbishop explained that the State is imposing a particular ideology that is evident in the materials being distributed to teachers and in some “policies of the State” that are being established the Ministries of Health and Education.

“The new material, ‘Building the Citizenry,’ imposes a critical theory that is intended to make the child or the student into a miniature critical theorist in order to change society, thus altering the order that is supposed to exist in the transmission of knowledge. Basic subjects are neglected and instead this critical perspective that is markedly ideological is emphasized,” the archbishop said. 

“The source of inspiration is the neo-Marxism of the Frankfurt School.  Do we want illiterate revolutionaries to come out of Argentinean schools?” he asked.

After denouncing the implementation of gender ideology for sexual education in schools, the archbishop explained that “according to this perspective, sexuality does not belong to the nature of the person, it is not a biological, psychological, affective and spiritual reality, but rather an historical and socio-cultural construct. One is a man or a woman not because one was born such, but because one was made such by the culture, which molds the gender of persons.

“A spilt between sex and gender is being proposed, such that one can speak of diverse sexual options, all equally valid,” Archbishop Aguer criticized.

He also went on to address the lack of appreciation for motherhood.  “It’s curious how, in the name of promoting women, the feminine figure is denigrated; above all, her maternal vocation is not accepted, because maternity is seen as a burden, since sexuality is totally separated from marriage ...What kind of education can be founded upon these principles?” the archbishop asked.
