Illinois’ allegedly Catholic governor Quinn makes another queer decision

SPRINGFIELD-Gov. Pat Quinn signed legislation Friday that would impose a new statewide sex-education standard for sixth- through 12th-graders that goes beyond abstinence-only instruction.

Opposed by Republicans, the bill would encourage school systems to adopt “comprehensive, medically accurate and age-appropriate” sex-education curricula with a specific focus on sexually-transmitted diseases, contraception and unintended pregnancies.

Backed by Planned Parenthood of Illinois and the ACLU of Illinois, the new law would enable parents to withhold their children from any sex-education courses to which they object. Quinn took action without making any public statement on his move.

New USCCB Site – Marriage: Unique for a Reason!


ABOUT THE ART

Saints Joachim and Anne are the father and mother of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Mary is the fruit of their marriage.

By a singular grace of God in view of the merits of Jesus, she was preserved from all stain of Original Sin from the moment of her conception. Thus it is in the context of married life and conjugal love that Mary is prepared to receive the Divine Logos, the Word made flesh, Jesus Christ our Lord. Jesus is the Logos, the “Reason” at the heart of all reason and truth, including the truth of marriage.

The marriage between Joachim and Anne is a significant witness to why marriage is “unique for a reason.”

Editor’s note: Some people of the homosexual persuasion have taken blasphemous issue with the new site. If you want to sample some queer logic, you have a strong stomach, and you are not too put-off by profanity and blasphemy click here. The reader comments are some of the ugliest I’ve seen, anywhere.
