Massachusetts resort town approves condoms for elementary school

Catholic World News - June 24, 2010

The town of Provincetown, Massachusetts has approved a new policy providing free condoms to students at public schools. The policy extends to both high schools and elementary schools. The policy requires school personnel to give out condoms on request, regardless of parents’ objections, and to keep the childrens’ requests secret from their families.

    It's no wonder that home schooling is growing by leaps and bounds. Mary, Mother of God, pray for us....

    let's hope that the children do not get headaches because they won't be able to get an aspirn from the school nurse.

    Poeple who live in Massachusetts know that "P-town" is a gay haven. I'm not surprised that the forces of tolerance there are the same who would be the most intolerant toward the natural law rights of parents to educate their children as they see fit. As Dr Michael Jones put it in his book "Libido Dominandi," sexual liberation is a form of political and social control.

    Personally, as a dad, under these circumstances or any circumstance for that matter, if a young boy had sex with my daughter that young boy would be sorry that he was ever born. Then teacher or school administrator I will be coming after you! You better think twice before you approve of something like this. I will not think twice. I am sure there are many fathers out there who will do the same. You so called educators are looking for trouble.
