The Planned Parenthood Federation of America is launching a national social-change initiative to end the “stigma and shame” about masturbation, homosexuality, and promiscuous sexual activity.

The “Real Life. Real Talk” project teaches parents how to “educate” their children about a sexual activity from the time they are born. The program recommends talking with teenagers about masturbation, oral sex, and anal sex.

The sex-ed program was piloted in Maine, New York, Connecticut, and Arizona between 2004 and 2008 and geared to children from 8 to 18 years old. Planned Parenthood administered the program at schools, churches, social services facilities, and libraries where parents and caregivers received the organization’s guide to “Sex Ed for Parents, Real Life. Real Talk.”

According to the organization’s sex guide for parents, children are never too young to learn about sex. “We need to give babies a sense of themselves, their sexuality, and their bodies from birth.” According to the organization’s sex guides, babies who masturbate should not be discouraged, or else they will become “ashamed” of their sexuality and “may not trust us later in life when they need guidance about sex and sexuality.”

The deviant notion that children are sexual from birth came from the bogus sex research conducted by Alfred Kinsey in the 1930s and 40s. Kinsey concocted his twisted theory of child sexuality from letters he collected from pedophiles who described for him the sordid details of their crimes. What’s more, Kinsey’s data questionnaire contained questions so personal, explicit, and intimate that only deviants and incarcerated sex offenders would answer them.

In fact, the British medical journal, The Lancet, condemned Kinsey for questioning “an unrepresentative proportion of prison inmates and sex offenders in a survey of normal sexual behavior.” Furthermore, the 1998 British documentary, “Secret History: Kinsey’s Pedophiles,” revealed the personal correspondence between a German pedophile, on trial for the rape and murder of a ten year old girl, and Kinsey. The film was not shown in the United States.

Planned Parenthood’s sex guide offers examples of children’s questions, including slang for female masturbation and oral sex. One talk-to-your-child tip tells parents to “take your teen to a clinic for contraception and exams, or let your teen know where to go for help to prepare to be sexually active.” Another section offers examples on how to educate teenagers on navigating sexual activity, including anal sex and masturbation.  

The organization advises parents to teach five-year-olds that “it’s normal to touch one’s sex organs for pleasure” and “to seek privacy” when they do so, and to teach seven-year-olds “that people experience sexual pleasure in a number of different ways.”

And now the nation’s largest abortion provider is looking to augment its client pool nationwide having received the necessary funding from The Ford Foundation and private donors. Planned Parenthood plans to market its sex-ed program via public service announcements over television and radio, print ads, posters, bus shelters, and T-shirts.

Some major Catholic universities have chosen to defy the Church when it comes to upholding its teachings and principles on abortion and traditional marriage.

In 2004, U.S. Catholic bishops wrote “Catholics in Political Life” that mandated Catholic universities and Catholics nationwide uphold the Church’s fundamental moral principles and refuse to honor those who promote abortion and homosexual marriage.

In 2009, Notre Dame chose to ignore the bishops’ mandate and deny the university’s Catholic identity by honoring Nimrod II, a.k.a. Barack Obama, as commencement speaker.

Now Marquette University has chosen to hire former U.S. Senator Russ Feingold to teach the next generation of Catholic lawyers at the university. As one of the nation’s most radical senators, Feingold persistently promoted abortion-on-demand and homosexual marriage throughout his tenure in the Senate.

“[H]is “controversial” views on a range of legal issues are in conflict with the University’s Catholic identity”Joshua Mercer of Catholic Vote

In siding with those whose actions contradict the fundamental Catholic teachings on life and marriage, Notre Dame and Marquette have chosen prestige over principles and popularity over morality.

Now that Marquette has followed Notre Dame’s example by defying the bishops’ mandate, it’s likely more Catholic academic institutions will follow suit. And that leaves conservative Catholics on the horns of a dilemma.  Do they denounce the political harlots in the ivory towers who no longer support the sacred mission of Catholic universities, or do they violate their bishops’ mandate and continue to honor those who brazenly defy the Church’s fundamental teachings on life and marriage?

I am not Catholic … I am indifferent …
