.- 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 âsexual educationâ programs that are based solely on contraceptive drugs and condoms.
The President of the Conference, Bishop JosÃ© Guadalupe MartÃn RÃ¡bago, said that âwe 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.â
Bishop MartÃn also said, âToday 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.â
âToday language is used to cover up the meaning of things and present as true what is false and as valuable what is destructive,â warned the bishop, referring to the morning-after pill and its abortifacient effects.
In an editorial entitled, âHuman Sexuality in a Secularized Culture,â published in the official newspaper of the Diocese of LeÃ³n, Bishop MartÃn explained that âthe media have given extensive coverage in the last weeks to the controversial issue of the so-called morning-after pill.â
âThe 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,â he concluded.
