The fort is betrayed even of them that should have defended it.

The local Catholic primary school that my two older sons attended showed this video to the year five children ( 10 year olds)
If you click on that link you will find that in order to view said video you will have to confirm that you are 18 years or older. But if you are a 10 year old in primary school, then your teachers can make porn part of "SRE" and it's all good.
When I was a child, if an adult showed children material like this it would have been a criminal offence. Where will this end? I fear we are already reaping the whirlwind.

It is abusive to deliberately break down the natural sense of inhibition children have around the body and it's functions by making them view and discuss this sort of material in a classroom setting. The people the child needs to guide him  through all the processes of growing, physical and emotional, are those same people who also changed the childs nappies, potty trained the child, wiped the childs bottom and then helped him to learn to wipe his bottom for himself.

Despite all the mountains of evidence that it's doing a terrible job, the State still wants to insinuate itself  even deeper into any remaining nook and cranny of private life that hasn't already been assessed and found wanting by an expert who has been on a course.
Undaunted by it's miserable failure, the government seeks to usurp the family still  further and, realising that some children are falling through it's dysfunctional net, is now determined to ensure that all schools are made to toe the line and teach children it's own hallowed condom-centric credo.
There's something uniquely scary about idiots with high self esteem.

I don't know whether the silence of the bishops is owing to some behind the scenes, softly softly catchee monkey, or whether no one has any stomach these days for the bloodless martyrdom of the media's rack and rope.

This on line petition to the Bishops of England and Wales imploring them to refuse to accept compulsory sex education in Catholic schools is closing on the Feast of St Joseph, 19th March ( Update! Deadline is now extended until 25th March, owing to an upcoming interview with the originator of the petition, Mrs Amanda Lewin,  in the Catholic Times. This is likely to generate more publicity.) Please go read it and consider signing.

The fort is betrayed even of them that should have defended it. And therefore seeing the matter is thus begun, and so faintly resisted on our parts, I fear that we be not the men that shall see the end of the misery. 
St John Fisher.

*Edited to add. This video is apparently being shown to 7 and 8 year olds currently. 


  1. Hi Clare
    Thanks for this very informative post. It is so distressing that it is left to the laity to uphold the Catholic Faith. I think our Martyrs must blush to see the lilylivered bishops who have come after them. God help us anyway. I've signed the petition and I thank you for providing the opportunity for me to do so. I hope lots more will sign too. Thanks Clare and God bless you.

  2. Like you I home educate. My older three went to primary school and I am more than grateful they were not exposed to this kind of thing there. However both of my oldest sons were exposed to teaching on contraception and a cartoon of a couple having sex in secondary school. I was not informed by the school. My second son told me what he had seen some time later and then my oldest said he too had seen it.
    For Oona Stannard to suggest that Catholic schools aren't doing this flies in the face of the evidence around here!
    God forbid that any child of mine ever has to go to school again.

    PS I am glad to have found the blog of a fellow EHEer :)

  3. Hi Clare
    Just dropping in to wish you & yours a HAPPY ST PATRICK'S DAY!

    God bless you.

  4. Just to say that there is support for Catholic home-schooling families in the U.K:
