Oh boy. Well I've explained my position on this in a previous blog entry from February 14, 2011, so I'll just repeat it here.
"On the other hand, Chris Pham, a member of the Boston chapter of Pure In Heart, which is a Catholic chastity group, claims that, 'Teens [and younger children] are being misled into believing that they can strap on a condom, have sex with whomever, and be safe.'
Chris hit it on the nose: Chastity and abstinence are the missing elements here. Students should be taught about living a chaste life, developing the strength to avoid temptations, saving themselves for marriage, and having true self-esteem.
'Teens [and younger children] are being misled into believing that
they can strap on a condom, have sex with whomever, and be safe.'
With free condoms and sex education supporting goodness in that, teens [and younger children] are thinking condoms are the ticket to indulging in underage and premarital sex. I definitely disagree with that, and C.J. Doyle, Director of Catholic Action League, states it well, 'Condom distribution sends the wrong message to students that sexual activity before marriage is normative.'"
