U.N. council’s sex ed proposal imposes ‘hedonistic values,’ Fr. Euteneur says

.- Pro-life leader Fr. Thomas J. Euteneur has criticized a United Nations council’s proposal for early childhood “comprehensive sexuality education” as an imposition of “hedonistic values” and a violation of the rights of parents.

Earlier in June, the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) issued a resolution at a Jamaica meeting calling for “comprehensive sexuality education starting in early childhood." The resolution said that scientific evidence shows that “comprehensive sexuality education” does not accelerate “sexual debut” and does not increase the frequency of sexual relations.

Commenting in a press release, Human Life International president Fr. Euteneur said the claim was “absolute nonsense,” since “almost every study on the topic” shows the exact opposite.

“Condom promotion has not stopped HIV in the developing world. And propagandizing young children about a value-neutral approach to sex, and telling them that they'll be safe if they use condoms is exactly how you get them to start practicing sex before marriage.”

“This outrage is perpetrated by pagans forcing their hedonistic values on the families of the only Catholic continent in the world. It is a violation of sovereignty of nations and of the rights of parents to teach their kids on these delicate matters,” he said.

Fr. Euteneur, noting that a 1995 Vatican document called The Truth and Meaning of Human Sexuality has condemned this type of sex education, said children’s innocence is “too precious of a gift to throw away in deference to government and its coercive modern amorality.”

“Parents, teachers, and all people of good will, let's tell them to get their grubby hands off our kids!" he exhorted.
