We condemn Georgetown University leaders for promoting sexual perversions that are physically, emotionally and spiritually harmful.
WASHINGTON (Christian Newswire) - Jesuit-run Georgetown University promoted "Sex Positivity" week on campus from February 24-February 28, 2009. Condoning sexual misconduct and deviance places undergraduate students, many of whom are still legally considered to be minors, in a potentially predatory and psychologically abusive environment.
On February 24, a session featured a speaker from a pro-fetishism, pro-bondage, and pro-cross-dressing organization. On February 25, Ash Wednesday, the session on "Torn about Porn?" discussed alternative forms of pornography that are allegedly not exploitative. On February 28, pornographic film maker/director Tristan Taormino and open marriage promoter Jenny Block addressed "Relationships Beyond Monogamy." The Guerilla Theatre advertised a public square event with people on soapboxes arguing about pornography, and with soapbox readings of 'sex-positive' poetry during class breaks.
We condemn Georgetown University leaders for promoting sexual perversions that are physically, emotionally and spiritually harmful. The events' organizers defend this explicit endorsement of perversity as open-minded sexual expression. We reject this reasoning as false. We cannot understand how Georgetown University could promote sexual anti-values that are blatantly opposed to the health and well-being of Georgetown students.
The Maryland Coalition Against Pornography is a secular organization protecting children and families against the harmful effects of pornography. MCAP also serves as a resource to local, state and federal legislatures in passing laws that protect children and teens from child pornographers, online predators, and pedophiles.
