I'm sure that pupils and parents will take note of that. Not!

Its been proved with science that the best way to stop teenagers doing stuff is to tell them not to do it.

Probably doesn't work with sex and drugs, though.

Tadagee - 12 Mar 2018 15:19:20 (#4 of 65)

Its wasn't an entirely serious comment.

FrankieTeardrop - 12 Mar 2018 15:41:14 (#5 of 65)

I thought it was entirely not serious.

Am I the only one who thinks that 'The Reverend Genders' is an appropriate name for someone discussing Sex Ed?

So, Bossab, are you saying that anyone who suggests celibacy before marriage is a ‘mentally deranged fantasist’, or that Christians in general are?

Bonusy - 12 Mar 2018 16:03:23 (#8 of 65)

The act of refraining from sexual activity is part of the Church's advice for sex education lessons

The rest of their curriculum thus follows

Math; don't do sums

English; shut up and stop writing

Science; take it all on faith

RE; don't listen to the others

PE; sit still and don't do anything

Music; ok, you can sing some hymns

I don't know about bossab- but I can answer YES.

No church preaching needed. We told our strapping healthy teenage lads that if they wanted to bring their respective GF's back for a sleep over that was fine with us.

Still no teen totty.

Macpaddy - 12 Mar 2018 16:29:08 (#11 of 65)

I'm with JessicaEccles on this.

bailliegillies - 12 Mar 2018 16:29:43 (#12 of 65)

I think the church would have been better off telling children. "Do as we tell you and not as we do"!

Oops, sorry forgot, they do don't they!

Macpaddy - 12 Mar 2018 16:34:41 (#13 of 65)

Suffer little children for coming unto me.

Bunch of mentally deranged fantasists tries to influence school curriculum...

Tories?

I spent just under five years being taught by unqualified nuns in nazareth house and I still have no memories of what I was taught by them. Religious organisations should definitely not have any say in the education of children as they are totally unqualified to do so and have a narrow agenda that is meant to benefit them.

Shame the emoticons don't work on here.

✔️

bossab2 - 12 Mar 2018 17:40:02 (#19 of 65)

or that Christians in general are?

Make that any religion that believes in invisible omnipresent beings who are bigger than the known universe.

keep banging the rocks together guys

Bossab, you are aware that there are CofE schools, and that people send their kids to them because they like all this stuff?
