Illustration from The Meeting Point
Yesterday, a friend sent me a link to a LifeSite article, which I unquestionably linked to, and later did a stupid humor post on the Vatican Project, 'The Meeting Point: Course of Affective Sexual Education for Young People' using gifs from the film Airplane which were tasteless. I apologize.
That said - I'm no expert on how or what to teach kids regarding sexuality and marriage - I have an idea, but I'm not involved in education, and I have never been a parent.
I just want to say that a certain degree of explicitness and candor - age appropriate of course - would not be inappropriate in any sex-ed program. Especially for teens - who know more today than I ever did at their age.
I'll tell you why I think that. In the early 1980's I watched a NOVA documentary called the The Miracle of Life on PBS. It was magnificent. How it was filmed, inside the body, seemed absolutely miraculous. It graphically explained the man's parts as well as the woman's parts and how they fit together, if you will. It explicitly depicts the moment of ejaculation inside the woman and follows the sperm to implantation and the development of the embryo, and so on. From conception to birth: The Miracle of Life ... to be sure. When I first watched it, for me it was a profound, awe-inspiring revelation. It completely changed my thinking regarding contraception, abortion, as well as homosexual acts.
