I am not a lecturer, as the article suggests, but nonetheless… I was interviewed by Ms. Rachel Lavin who was reporting on sexuality and the youth in Ireland. Here is what I had to say…
Now that people are turning away from the Catholic Church, who is the authority on sex? Who has the credibility to advise? There’s a generational gap in sexuality. If the child goes to the parent for advice, all the parent knows is what they learned through the church, and seeing as now the Catholic church are no longer the voice of sexual morality in contemporary Irish culture, parents may not know what to tell their children. They’re avoiding it as they don’t know how to deal with it.
What do you think about the issues raised? Agree or disagree with me? Anything to add?
