Thumbs up to Maria Sulewski for sticking to her convictions that the only truly safe sex is in the context of an exclusively monogamous relationship. She has done this under tremendous nagative pressure ultimately resulting in the loss of the job in which she has served successfully for four years.
Thumbs up for Sulewski for refusing to teach impressionable students the misinformation by implication that promiscuous sex with multiple partners can somehow be made safe simply by using condems.
Thumbs up for her refusal to teach by implication young people that they neither can nor are expected to control their sexual drives. Unfortunately, too many teens get this impression from their sex education and live down to the expectations held out for them with disastrous results affecting them throughout their lives.
Far too many Americans wake up after a night of so-called "protected sex" to find that they have been "gifted" with a life sentence to a sexually transmitted disease (STD). The microscopic viruses which cause quite a number of STDs easily pass through the "safest" condem even when it is properly worn.
Ironically, discussion of the consequences of one such STD virus, HPV, which causes cervical cancer in many women, appeared right next to the Register's editorial.
Far too many other Americans wake up after a night of "protected sex" to find themselves "gifted" with an unexpected, unwanted pregnancy. Of course, this makes for a lot of business for the abortion industry, with good reason the principle promoter of "safe sex."
Thumbs down to the Register and the Erie County Department of Health for proposing a religious test for certain jobs in the health sector. The thrust of your article is that no practicing Catholic need apply for a job as a school nurse. Do you have any concept how outrageous that is?
Thumbs up to Sulewski for taking this matter to court, thereby protecting the rights of all American Catholics to the jobs Catholics have served well in for decades. Way to go, Maria!
