Protecting God's Children from Safe Environments Programs

Things are apparently heating up in the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis surrounding the implementation of safe environment programs to comply with the U.S. Bishop's Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People.

First, as we have already noted, the local ordinary recently silenced a priest in the archdiocese, supposedly for his critical comments regarding the safe environment programs the archdiocese is implementing.

Now apparently there is a group of parents that are concerned about all this as well and are trying to rally other parents to oppose these programs.

Having read some of the curriculum being used, I don't find the opposition surprising. If priests were to present some of these lessons in the classroom it would probably be considered abuse by modern standards. Of course this shouldn't be surprising, since Planned Parenthood supposedly endorses some of the programs being used.

Word on the street is legal counsel recommends teaching 1st graders and up the anatomically correct names of their "private parts" so that they have a stronger case in court if they every have an abuse case. I'll leave the ranting on this one to mjniemann who is far better at it than I.
