It's been a bit quiet on here because I haven't, as the header says, known quite where to start.
I know I'm far from alone in being absolutely horrified that the Government sponsored sexualisation of infant and junior school children is about to become law. This isn't about 'education', it's about power and control, like rape. I don't think the analogy is too extreme. The thought of six year olds being forced by government policy to acknowledge any kind of sexuality is nauseating. I thought grooming was illegal, yet what is the Government in their right on wisdom proposing to do in the confines of the classroom?
Equally nauseating is the idea that Catholic schools are to be forced into telling children where to obtain abortions. This one actually made me laugh.
From my experience, as soon as anyone becomes pregnant and has contact with the medical profession, whatever their age or state in life, they are offered an abortion. It's kind of de rigueur, I mean if you're a professional woman, 'it' might interfere with skiing this year; if you're a student 'it' will ruin your career.
So what is all this total rubbish about young girls being 'deprived access' to 'reproductive services'?
Abortion, like infant/junior/preteen sex ed is all about control, and giving one side of the argument. The Catholic schools I've known have always had the Balls, if you'll excuse the pun, to very much show the workable and always preferable alternative.
What always boggles my mind being, I hope, a fairly logical kind of person, is that there is so little consistency among the liberal intelligensia and their lobby groups, with whom this social experiment developed.
Just look at Facebook as an example. On Facebook, it's permissable for a girl/woman of any age to post photos of herself in a string bikini, as long as you don't bare your nipple. You can see it through fabric, wear as wet a t-shirt as you like, but you can't bare it. Yet if you post a photo of yourself breastfeeding your newborn, in which all you can see is far less boob than in a bikini, you can have your account deleted as being pornographic. It's ok for boobs to be an object, it's not ok to use them for their natural function (As with Facebook, so with my current bete noire, the BBC. But I'll save trashing that for another time when I'm feeling less, er, angry).
Likewise, it's essential to promote abortions, but it's never ok to show pictures of what having an abortion actually does to a baby. Good God in heaven, it might actually put people off, and then where would the abortion industry be?
Nice dual standards. What a messed up society.
Where to start? With my trusty Rosary, and St Michael I think.
Sancte Michael Archangele, defende nos in praelio. Contra nequitiam et insidias diaboli esto praesidium. Imperet illi Deus, supplices deprecamur. Tuque princeps militiae caelestis, Satanam aliosque spiritus malignos, qui ad perditionem animarum pervagantur in mundo divina virtute in infernum detrude. Amen
Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in the day of battle, be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him we humbly pray, and do thou, Prince of the Heavenly host, by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan and all wicked spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen.
