Archbishop warns of dangers of new education law in Argentina

.- Archbishop Hector Aguer of La Plata has decried a recently approved sex-ed law in Argentina and said its passage went unnoticed by most people, despite the grave consequences it will have for the education of youth.

During his weekly program, “Keys to a Better World,” the archbishop stressed that the new sex-ed law forces public schools to provide sexually explicit content to children as young as five years old.

Archbishop Aguer warned that in many public schools a “gender perspective” prevails and children are taught a “minimalist concept of man, stripped of his transcendent dimension, in which the nature of the person and his acts are not acknowledged,” and he explained that “in the gender perspective the true nature of human sexuality is altered.”

At the same time, the archbishop pointed out, the law contains “concepts that can be interpreted benignly,” such as one section that states that “sexual education should be comprehensive and progressive.”

Archbishop Aguer called for reflection on the consequences of the new law.  “What does it mean that the state assumes the right and duty to intervene in something so delicate and essential that has to do with the development of the personality of children,” he asked.
