Collegiate Sex-Ed

My friend Carlos, member of my parish family, author, and fellow knight has posted this on his Blog Casorosendi.

Collegiate Sex-Ed
Ryan Anderson

Every fall, kids arrive on college campuses and learn that their basic moral intuitions on sexual matters don’t square with the reigning ideas. Thanks to debased campus culture and overreaching on the part of administrators and professors, students are beginning to respond systematically -- and they’re having an impact. Here's how.

No two undergraduate experiences are quite the same. But the undergraduate years are marked by certain commonalities: students are challenged intellectually, socially, and ethically. Long-held beliefs are forced to submit to rational scrutiny. No longer is "that's just the way we do it" or "that's just the way I feel about the issue" sufficient. In philosophy classrooms and biology labs, students are expected to slough off the opinions they held in their pre-critical-thinking days and adopt the conclusions of the best arguments. Everything is to be tested, and only the rationally defensible is to be retained.

Thanks Carlos!
