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.
I know that this looks stupid, honestly I just went to look for a quote for the blog but I literally watched the whole video very intrigued by it and after I was getting choked up. He has a lot of great points that I think everyone should pay attention to you. I don’t care if your a virgin and you think you’ll be until marriage because everyone struggles don’t lie. Admit it and try to solve the problem by getting advise and following it.
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!
We all know that if he just wants sex then he’s no good but the funny thing is were not perfect. It’s just not that easy! If you really like someone and they want you to go farther the chances of you agreeing are pretty high. It’s how were made, we have passions and flaws that we have to control. If you say no then be strong if they are pushy then you need to get out of the relationship. Teens feel pressured that they will lose the person that they were seeing but it’s better then hurting yourself.
Every teens wants to date someone, it’s the feeling of being liked. The flattery is so tempting for us to fall for the other, how could we refuse . I’m not telling you to not date in high school! What I want to say if we just need to be careful. I think it’s great when teens date, I was talking to a priest and he advised me to date every guy I saw. Meaning get to know what you like because you’ll never know until you see. We should always make sure to be with someone we trust and make sure we trust ourselves. Sometimes for some it takes longer to grow in maturity and their not ready for a relationship. We are so young and naive at times that we don’t know what we are getting ourselves into. We need to make sure we are not taken advantage of. Boys and girls are guilty of abuse on the other. Dating with grace is something that every relationship should have. Healthy relationships help make each other better people and that’s what relationships are about, how to make the other a better person. Make sure to bring out the best in the other.
