Section, you mischaracterize. Talking about abstinence is not bad per se. Abstinece-only is off base, IMO. But talking about the benefits abstience should be part of a well-rounded sexuality course.Originally posted by Section109Row15@Nov 9 2004, 03:57 PM
You may think that everyone here is in support for comprehensive sex education, but that is not the case. Catholics don't believe in contraception. Bush sent one of his aides to the world summit on overpopulation, and the guy stood infront of the summit and told them that abstinence programs are the way to curb over population. Don't be so naive to think that the Republican party as a whole shares your Guilliani moderate views. The base of the Republican party is fighting for creationism, abstinence programs, etc... Wake-up.
Some Catholics are against birth control. Catholic teaching certainly is, but not all Catholics follow the teaching to the letter. Me, for example. 48% of Catholics voted for Kerry, etc.
