I'll begin by declaring that I'm not religious nor do I believe in a supreme being. I do find this type of disinformation, whatever your beliefs are, especiallly when given to school children, to be harmful and tantamount to abuse. It is incumbent.on all those who are dealing with vulnerable individuals, and in that I include minors, to ensure that whatever it is they are instructing is fact based and at least presents a balanced view so that those receiving instruction can make an informed choice of what to believe, especially where there is scientific evidence that contradicts previously held doctrine. The Catholic church acknowledge that the old testament stories are, in the main, allegories. Surely it is therefore impossible to square outmoded beliefs around male influence and masturbation with fact. In short, she was dumb to do this. Well done to the students though for standing up to such nonsense.
