Mexican bishops to propose sex-ed based on chastity

.- The Bishops Conference of Mexico has announced that it will soon issue a program which will allow for the education of young people in chastity as an alternative to the “sexual education” programs that are based solely on contraceptive drugs and condoms.

The President of the Conference, Bishop José Guadalupe Martín Rábago, said that “we need to provide a response, we need to seek out a means of education.  By next week I will present a respectful educational proposal.  We are not trying to impose on anybody, but we do wish to share our conviction.”

Bishop Martín also said, “Today there is an abundance of information on everything related to sexuality, but there lacks an authentic wisdom to know and appreciate true human and Christian love; for this reason many people are hungrier for love than for sex.”

“Today language is used to cover up the meaning of things and present as true what is false and as valuable what is destructive,” warned the bishop, referring to the morning-after pill and its abortifacient effects.

In an editorial entitled, “Human Sexuality in a Secularized Culture,” published in the official newspaper of the Diocese of León, Bishop Martín explained that “the media have given extensive coverage in the last weeks to the controversial issue of the so-called morning-after pill.”

“The risk is that we focus only on scandal, confrontation, and sensationalism, and not take the time or the interest to analyze, in a critical way, what is behind all of these efforts to manipulate and disfigure the true meaning of human sexuality,” he concluded.
