.- The World Congress of Families condemned a âheartlessâ group which they believe is taking advantage of Spain's economic crisis in creating an âacademy of prostitutionâ in Valencia.
The so-called âAcademy of Pleasure,â founded by Brandon Morales, teaches its students how to be prostitutes and promises a job to those who graduate. The course costs $129 and last ten days.
Local officials in Valencia have called for the operation to be shut down and for its promotional ads to be discarded.
In a statement sent to CNA on May 10, the World Congress of Families called prostitution âan activity that denigrates and enslaves the human person and has negative consequences for society, from the social exclusion in which it takes place, to the health and psychological problems that it entails.â
âUndoubtedly prostitution, and in general everything related to sexual experiences that do not correspond to human nature, are a modern form of slavery that is not in accord with human nature and poses a threat to the traditional family,â the statement said.
The organizers of the World Congress of Families, which will take place May 25-27 in Madrid, said the event this year would include âpolitically incorrect round-table discussions and seminars on sex.â
Among the topics to be discussed include âThe social cost of pornography,â âPromiscuity and infidelity: collateral damage,â âSolutions to homosexual behavior,â âPurity and abstinence,â and âLove, intimacy and sexuality in marriage.â
The list of invited speakers features Bishop Juan Antonio Reig Pla of Alcala de Henares, psychotherapist Richard Cohen, Venezuelan model Vivian Sleiman, author of the bestseller âVirgin at 30,â and Christine de Vollmer, president of the Latin American Alliance for the Family.
