Two Swiss Catholic bishops have traded verbal blows after the bishop of Chur, Vitus Huonder, argued that parents should have the right to exempt their children from sex education classes at school.

Re: Sex ed harms 'natural sense of shame': bishop

Ah, Vitus, Vitus, Vitus. I've met him. He's a short man with colorful clothes.

First he bans the Fasnachtlers from wearing costumes during a mass just for fasnachtlers (which is rather ironic considering what he wears).

And now this.

It's time to have our annual talk again. I'm not sure if making the Local is exactly the press he wants.

Well, barefoot and pregnant = more souls for the congregation (and tithes for the coffer), so of course!


Anyhow, what in tarnation is natural about being ashamed of our bodies and sex? I've never met a baby that was bashful about running around with just a diaper (or even without!), nor have I ever met a baby that was shy about hugging and kissing other babies.

Shame in these things (and sex) is a purely cultural phenomenon, mainly propagated by those who are "concerned" for the "morality" of others.

This thread was started by "The Local" guys. Please move on. Don't feed the troll. The interview in question happened several years ago.

Whilst I certainly don't agree with him, he is entitled to his own opinion.

Perhaps we should stop bashing the bishop...............

You're right. I'll send him a basket of bananas as a peace offering.

I mean seriously, it's time we took a firm grip on negative comments.

We should take it firmly in hand and work this thing vigorously through to it's natural conclusion.

You should be thoroughly ashamed!! Euphemism cannot disguise the filthy and perverted thoughts you are thinking. Obviously you have had your natural sense of shame permanently damaged by sex ed. Or p0rn. Probably the same thing to the Bishop.

Re: Sex ed harms 'natural sense of shame': bishop

I nearly spewed my wine reading that. LOL. Having grown up catholic around all the boys who were getting to know 'father' a bit better than they liked and having a whole different kind of sex ed, I find it rather hilarious there's still a priest left who can say this sort of stuff with a straight face. Now I gotta go refill my wine...maybe I can find someone who can do a water to wine miracle on the way to the kitchen. J, M and J, reality always trumps fiction in the strange department.

Ah, the old 'hairy palms' plan. Don't forget the vaseline and the tissues. And a razor.

You're not sticking the canteloupe IN something. Vice versa, rather.
