Our Lady of Fatima warns: "More souls go to hell for sins of the flesh than for any other reason."
Classroom sex-ed is objectively gravely evil. It is a perverse method of instruction that makes public and open what by nature is private and intimate. Classroom sex-ed leads children to sin.
There is hardly a family in the western world not endangered by this plague. After years of a "sexual catechesis" substituting for Faith and morals. Catholics are seeing the evil effects of classroom sex-education, and realizing that without pure children, hope of a genuine Catholic Restoration is an illusion.
Unfortunately, the enemies of the Church understand the issue all too well. When asked after Roe vs. Wade how abortion could be made secure in America, Allan
Guttmacher, former president of Planned Parenthood, responded: "Sex-Education."
The hour is late, but with God's help -and your cooperation- there is still hope. Supporting the magisterium of the Church, working for a universal ban on classroom sex-ed and advancing the teachings of the Church in Catholic schools and parishes are huge tasks. That's why we all need to: pray, fast, give alms and get actively involved.
Won't you work with us to help protect the innocence of children?

Another very grave danger that naturalism which nowadays invades the field of education in that most delicate matter of purity of morals. Far too common is the error of those who with dangerous assurance and under an ugly term propagate a so-called sex-education, falsely imagining they can forearm youth against the dangers of sensuality by means purely natural, such as a foolhardy initiation and precautionary instruction for all indiscriminately, even in public; and, worse still, by exposing them at an early age to the occasions, in order to accustom them, so it is argued, and as it were to harden them against such dangers.
Such persons grievously err in refusing to recognize the inborn weakness of human nature, and the law of which the Apostle speaks, fighting against the law of mind (Romans 7:23); and also in ignoring the experience of facts, from which it is clear that, particularly in young people, evil practices are the effect not so much of ignorance of intellect as of weakness of a will exposed to dangerous occasions, and unsupported by the means of grace.
In this extremely delicate matter, if, all things considered, some private instruction is found necessary and opportune, from those who hold from God the commission to teach and have the grace of state, every precaution must be taken. Such precautions are well known in traditional Christian education, and are described adequately by Antoniano cited above, when he says:
"Such is our misery and inclination to sin, that often in the very things considered to be remedies against sin, we find occasions for and inducements to sin itself. Hence it is of the highest importance that a good father, while discussing with his son a matter so delicate, should be well on his guard and not descend to details, nor refer to the various ways in which this infernal hydra destroys with its poison so large a portion of the world; otherwise it may happen that instead of extinguishing this fire, he unwittingly stirs or kindles it in the simple and tender heart of a child. Speaking generally, during the period of childhood it suffices to employ those remedies which produce the double effect of opening the door to the virtue of purity and closing the door upon vice."
Pius XI's prohibition is the magisterium's most authoritative ruling on classroom sex-ed, and is still binding in conscience and in mind.
