Textbook for 15 year-olds in Spain attacks the Church
Facebook Twitter Google+ Pinterest Addthis

.- The association Educacion y Persona has denounced a new textbook that aggressively attacks the Church and supports abortion and is part of the government-sponsored school course Education for Citizenship. The textbook will be used by 15 year-olds.

The Spanish daily La Razon reported that the textbook “attacks the moral doctrine of the Catholic Church, parodies the election of a Pope, proposes Cuba as an economic model and treats the right to abortion as non-negotiable, with numerous obscene illustrations.”

La Razon pointed to several paragraphs in the text that directly attack the Church’s teachings on same-sex marriage, abortion and the use of contraceptives.  “Fortunately,” the textbook says, “we don’t have to put their teachings before those of Jesus Christ.”

Elsewhere the textbook states: “The Church has mobilized itself against this Education for Citizenship course even mentioning that other sexual options besides those it sanctions exist.  They have tried to take the place of laws with their gods and churches.”

The textbook also includes illustrations that mock belief in God. In one such illustration, Adam and Eve are shown being expelled from the Garden of Eden.  “Adam says to her: ‘I warned you, Eve. That idea of us actually thinking wasn’t going to make the old man happy one bit’.”
