U.K.: BOY SCOUTS AS YOUNG AS 10 TO BE GIVEN CONDOMS
From dailymail (HT STELLA LITTLE): "Parents waving their children off to Scout camp may soon have more to worry about than the youngsters swapping ghost stories after dark.
In a move that has alarmed traditionalists, the Scout Association is to introduce sex education for its young members.
Leaders will be able to give confidential contraceptive advice to under-16s and even hand out emergency condoms on trips.
The Association insists the information will help Scouts resist peer pressure to have sex before they are ready.
But critics claim it will encourage boys and girls to become sexually active earlier.
Nick Seaton, of the Campaign for Real Education, said: 'This will horrify a lot of parents.
'These things have nothing to do with Scouting. They should be sticking to the traditional activities of camp fires and sing- songs instead of learning about sexually transmitted diseases and emergency contraception.'
The advice that leaders can give is outlined in a factsheet published today by the Scout Association, which has 60,000 girl members and 400,000 boys and young men.
Scouts aged ten-and-a-half to 14 will be able to discuss where to get contraception and pregnancy testing and how to find sexual health clinics."
"Woe to you, Korazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida! If the miracles that were performed in you had been performed in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes. But I tell you, it will be more bearable for Tyre and Sidon on the day of judgment than for you. And you, Capernaum, will you be lifted up to the skies? No, you will go down to the depths. If the miracles that were performed in you had been performed in Sodom, it would have remained to this day. But I tell you that it will be more bearable for Sodom on the day of judgment than for you." Matt 11:20-24
