The education on sex is an issue the Catholic Church struggles with because the public school districts are getting their advice from Planed Parenthood of America which is a non- for profit organization ( people thinks it’s good because they don’t charge) providing reproductive health and maternal and child health services. AKA Planned Parenthood is an organization that gives advice and can provide all the ways to hurt yourself in a relationship but make it sound like they are helping you and they care because you support your sexual life and they want you to come to them for any solutions. The public schools look to them to educate our nation’s youth, thats why we have so many STD’s, teenage pregnancies, abortions, gays/lesbians/transgenders, and all the teenage girls on birth control. The Catholic church teaches us to remain abstinent until marriage, the reason being is because we as humans are not mature enough for a sexual relationship until we are married because then it is just us using the other. Marriage represents the unity of two people in love with each other and God to start a family. Thats why sex is called making love, it’s purpose is o be used within a marriage and to procreate. All the advice Planed Parenthood gives us is how to end up being used and feel like we are nothing. They treat sex as a fun activity, they say it’s a healthy part of life and normal. They are right about that but it’s meant to be held within a marriage. When Adam and Eve fell the human race was burden with struggles in life, one of them being lust. Lust is a common thing that everyone has to fight, God expects us to fight it and therefore we should be taught to stay strong and keep that promise. We should not conform with society just because they are teaching us to be sexually active with anyone. We need to stay strong and speak out about the truth and how we need to properly educate our youth in America.
Sex needs to be educated in the right way because the modern way of thinking is to do it with someone you love, but then people start falling in love with as many people as they want. I believe that when you meet the right person the love for that one won’t even compare to the others you so called loved. Then you already gave your virginity away to someone you didn’t truly love. Sex is messy I see it mess with peoples minds and destroy relationships because it’s not used properly. The marriage rate of couples staying together who wait until marriage and use nfp is 98%. In my opinion the stats speak for themselves. We need to learn how to abstain and be fruitful in our actions and stay strong and not let society make decisions for us.
The media shows us the glorious moments that they want us to see. The media shows us the happy side of the story. It is very uncommon for people to remain chaste before they are married, we are challenge to say know and it is hard but not impossible. God gives us the grace to say no, he expects us do stay strong. We turn on the TV or read a magazine that makes sure to talk about sex. They shove it in our faces, it’s everywhere we must learn to live a life of virtue because that’s what will make us happy. So many relationships are based on sex and then they get married and their marriage falls apart because they never loved each other they loved the pleasure the other gave them. Love is not something we should mess with because it is us giving ourselves to another and when we don’t take it seriously we tend to hurt ourselves in a way that we feel like we do not deserve anyone. That is never the case, we ALWAYS deserve to be loved!
Hi, I wanted to add to the last post I made and talk about the same article. I noticed that in the article it kept saying that there gonna teach “safe sex”, I thought what is safe sex? I talked with one of my friends and she is having sex in high school, she comes from a broken home and she just wants someone to care for her. She feels that if she sleeps with guys they will care for her. Every time she does it with another guy they just ignore her and she ends up hurting herself. Is it because she is on birth control or using a condom it’s safe? I don’t see why that is the meaning of “safe sex”. My friend hurts herself every time she makes a mistake and it is only because she wants someone to care for her. I think safe sex would mean you are having it within a marriage because you make a promise and the actions are how you profess your love for one another. Safe sex should not be how to prevent yourself from getting pregnant or STD’s, there are other consequences that hurt yourself and it’s not wroth it, every time my friend made the mistake she regretted it but she kept falling for it because she thought the next time he would care.
Hi I’m Jessie and I found this article on sex education in America’s public schools and I thought it was interesting how society teaches students safe sex when sex belongs in a marriage. Marriage was created by God to pro-create and when people have sex out of wedlock they are abusing the gift that God gave us. Sex is a beautiful thing that should be treated as something sacred. The school are teaching kids to have safe sex which helps the prevent from getting pregnant and not getting sexual transmitted disease but we would not have to worry about STD’s if people would only have sex with one other person. Kids feel so pressured now a days to have sex and if they don’t they are considered losers, we should not have to feel bad if were not having sex, it should be something that we should be happy about, happy we have respect for ourselves and those of who want to wait are waiting to share themselves with one other and it is the person who loves them.
