Is pornographic, physiological sex education in public libraries a matter of free speech? less Bill of Rights, more Quanta Cura!

Have you heard Catholics or others say that pornographic sex ed in a public library is free speech? This is the logical conclusion of our "Classical Liberal" constitutional philosophy of government... less Bill of Rights, more Quanta Cura!

Here is what the Bible has to say about impurity:

"3But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not so much as be named among you, as becometh saints: 4Or obscenity, or foolish talking, or scurrility, which is to no purpose; but rather giving of thanks.  5For know you this and understand, that no fornicator, or unclean, or covetous person (which is a serving of idols), hath inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God."

- Eph 5, 3-5

The standard of the Scripture, God's Word, is that we are not even to speak about such things. As Catholic Christians we let the Scriptures, not law, define for us what is impure or pornographic, possibly leading to sexual arousal.

Physiological sex ed is never, according to Church teaching, ever to be taught in a group context. As well, the latency period of each child must be extended for as long as possible. You and I don't determine what is and what is not arousing for others. The standard is Jesus Christ and, therefore, total chastity without compromise. This is who we are to be and to encourage in others at all times.

From Quanta Cura:

"3. But, although we have not omitted often to proscribe and reprobate the chief errors of this kind, yet the cause of the Catholic Church, and the salvation of souls entrusted to us by God, and the welfare of human society itself, altogether demand that we again stir up your pastoral solicitude to exterminate other evil opinions, which spring forth from the said errors as from a fountain. Which false and perverse opinions are on that ground the more to be detested, because they chiefly tend to this, that that salutary influence be impeded and (even) removed, which the Catholic Church, according to the institution and command of her Divine Author, should freely exercise even to the end of the world -- not only over private individuals, but over nations, peoples, and their sovereign princes; and (tend also) to take away that mutual fellowship and concord of counsels between Church and State which has ever proved itself propitious and salutary, both for religious and civil interests."

"(T)hey do not fear to foster that erroneous opinion, most fatal in its effects on the Catholic Church and the salvation of souls, called by Our Predecessor, Gregory XVI, an "insanity," viz., that "liberty of conscience and worship is each man's personal right, which ought to be legally proclaimed and asserted in every rightly constituted society; and that a right resides in the citizens to an absolute liberty, which should be restrained by no authority whether ecclesiastical or civil, whereby they may be able openly and publicly to manifest and declare any of their ideas whatever, either by word of mouth, by the press, or in any other way." But, while they rashly affirm this, they do not think and consider that they are preaching "liberty of perdition..."
