Spanish academic scholar says Education for Citizenship an 'amalgam of aberrations'

.- Academic scholar and recipient of numerous awards, Juan Velarde Fuertes, this week applauded conscientious objection to the school course Education for Citizenship, calling it an “amalgam of aberrations” that breaks with the foundations of “Western Christian culture.”

Speaking to the group Professionals for Ethics, Velarde criticized the quality of education in Spain and said the course “adds nothing to basic education and takes time away from the school day.”

In addition, he warned, its contents break with “the basic foundations of Western Christian culture, without which it is impossible to find the adequate basis for living together in peace in our nation.”

Velarde, a recipient of the King Juan Carlos Prize for Economics, also criticized the economic contents of the course, calling it “an amalgam of indescribable aberrations and economic trash.”

“As a grandfather and as a Spanish citizen, of course I applaud conscientious objection to this bundle of stupidities and moral and intellectual abominations,” he stated.

Velarde noted that the Spanish Constitution supports conscientious objection and that “if parents understood the collection of barbarities that are being taught in the course, they would have thrown it out on the street.”
