Pope Benedict XVI is repeating Wisdom of the ages (although he states it more perfectly). Ancient Greeks and the Stoics all knew that Virtue was habituated in youth and that without it you could not have a civil society or a decent military. Teaching Virtue was the sole reason for education since the Ancient Greeks—(in Western Civilization) until John Dewey who kicked out God by the 30’s. (Fabian Socialist).
All the Founders knew Virtue was necessary for Freedom and was the reason for public school.
Sex Education was inserted in the 70’s into public schools-—designed by the Cultural Marxists (Lukacs) to destroy Virtue—to destroy civil society intentionally.
Many specialists noted the promiscuity and lack of Virtue in children after the introduction of Sex Ed in the schools. Abortions and pregnancies and STD’s skyrocketed with Sex Ed.
These specialists stated that during the latency period of children 6-12—all sex education shouldn’t be allowed in public schools since it violates the privacy and dignity of the person. Immature children can not process the information in a mature way which demeans the sex act-—it reduces it to an animal act devoid of morality. Abnormal focus on sex with children who naturally are not interested (unless being molested or emotionally damaged) reduces their educability.
Here’s who is responsible for young Johnny’s Sex Ed in public schools:
Self control and virtue are seen as “evil” these days. It is much more fun to blame your sins on something else rather than yourself.
