“We recognize the continuing need for full, positive, and factual sex education opportunities for children, youth, and adults. The
Church offers a unique opportunity to give quality guidance and education in this area.”

“All children have the right to quality education, including full sex education appropriate to their stage of development that utilizes the
best educational techniques and insights. Christian parents and guardians and the Church have the responsibility to ensure that
children receive sex education consistent with Christian morality, including faithfulness in marriage and abstinence in singleness. . .”
