February 1, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Spains new government, swept into power in November after seven years of socialist rule, has announced the elimination of a controversial program to indoctrinate students with homosexualist and socialist ideology.
The governments new Minister of Education, Culture, and Sports, Jose Ignacio Wert, says frankly that the civics course, which was imposed on all public and private schools, became a course that was charged with indoctrination.
Education for Citizenship has been accompanied, since its birth, by controversy and created a serious division in society and in the educational world because it went beyond what should belong to a true civic formation in accordance with the directories and guides formulated by the Council of Europe, Wert also stated.
Education for Citizenship and Human Rights, also known in Spain as EpC, provoked a massive protest by Spanish citizens who said that their right to educate their children according to their own values was being violated by the government.
Course materials suggested that teachers have students make a critical evaluation of the social and sexual division of labor and racist, xenophobic, sexist, and homophobic social prejudices and said that teachers should strive to revise the students attitude towards homosexuality.
In one manifestation of the course, students were told that sex is for enjoyment as much as we can or want, and so and let others do whatever they wish, according to Forum Libertas, a Spanish Catholic news source.
Despite resistance from large numbers of families, the Spanish Socialist Workers Party refused to back down, and even attempted to impose the program on Spaniards living abroad.
Wert, a member of the now-ruling Popular Party, says that EpC will be replaced by a program that is limited to teaching the text of Spains constitution, rights and responsibilities, and pluralism, liberty, democracy, and knowledge of European institutions in the words of Europa Press.
The suppression of EpC was hailed by numerous pro-family organizations, including Forum for the Family (Foro de la Familia), Make Yourself Heard (HazteOir), the Family Policy Institute (Instituto de Politica Familiar), and Professionals for Ethics (Profesionales por la Etica).
Jaime Urcelay, president of Professionals for Ethics, called the news a joy that compensates many years of effort and struggle for freedom against an educational indoctrination imposed by the government in power.
There have been many years of objections (55 thousand objections presented) of suffering and judicial processes (around 3,000 in Spain and 400 Spaniards in Strasbourg suing), he added.
Professionals for Ethics reports that Jose Ignacio Wert was receiving a 1,000 messages a day urging him to fulfill the campaign promise of the Peoples Party to eliminate EpC, prior to the announcement.
Regarding the new civics program to be announced, Urcelay said that it would be welcome if it does not intend to insinuate itself into the values of students and mold their consciences and thinking against the values of their parents.
Also the Gospel of Jesus Christ represents the greatest threat to wicked men who desire power and authority. To be able to enslave a population to sexual immorality and then pass laws granting sexual license, that is: to make sexual license official government policy. This in effect is the modern socialist ploy to put the Gospel of Jesus Christ on the wrong side of the law.
Zapatero was obsessed with promoting abortion and homosexual rights to the detriment of the basic welfare of the nation. He has left power with the country on its kness and facing 50% youth unemployment and 21% overall unemployment with many people not able to claim welfare payments of any kind..Despite those frightening figures his government contributed 95million Euros to an international LGBT organisation last year.
Let’s just say it. Homosexuality is immoral. Adultery is immoral. Sex with children is immoral. Get married. Then have sex. Sex outside of marriage is not cool, sexy or anything but immoral and evil. It will be your downfall.
Yes - of course you are.
Do you hear?
No - of course you don't.
Mr Wert, I applaud you!
We could do it here, but we'd have to close all public schools, shut down the broadcast networks and movie studios.
Sad to think how deeply the marxists have penetrated and corrupted American thought.
Correct on all counts.
How far down the road have we gone, though? It was only about 30 years ago that the vast majority of Americans would have agreed with everything in your post.
Now, however, even many here on FR who call themselves conservative would balk at your characterization of extramarital sexual relations. Far too many think it is just fine. Most Americans, it seems, don’t even bat an eye about unmarried couples living together.
When I see the way teenaged girls dress today, the lack of modesty, I still cannot get my brain around it. In my teen years, I would have died of shame to be seen in public in anything as skimpy as they wear because my mother had taught me the proper way for a young lady to comport herself.
