    Whenever I see the term “sex-education” I don’t know whether to grimace or laugh.

    “Sex-education” appears to me to be the perfect example of the secular trying to replace the religious and doing a bang-up job of missing the point entirely. BECAUSE:

    a) People are really stupid, but hardly more stupid than fruit flies who manage the deed just fine, thank you, so “sex-education” can’t hardly refer to that aspect of education. (And in addition, anyone who hasn’t the wits to figure out the simplest act of the living should NOT procreate for the good of the species!)

    b) So the term “sex-education” must refer to a series of advisories on the other aspects of sex, such as morality or wisdom of partaking. [The only other aspects left, it seems to me are the economics of sex, and the sheer medical mechanics of it, neither of which the secular restricts itself to.] BUT the secular is really not equipped or even capable of talking about either morality or wisdom. The secular can’t even figure out whether certain magazines &/or advertisements are immoral or not. It has no criteria other than aesthetic objection to use; none whatsoever. Which means that the term “sex-education” is bandied around constantly but means next to nothing.
