Michael Scaperlanda at Mirror of Justice (a Catholic legal blog) wrote a post entitled April Fools Day in June or Where Have All the Grown-ups Gone. The full text of the post is:
Several news sources are reporting that a Massachusetts school board has adopted a policy allowing students at all grade levels to obtain condoms from the school nurse and all without parental notification. Either someone is having a lot of fun pulling our legs or we are much farther down the rabbit hole than I imagined.
My initial response? Good. My second response? Why would parental notification even be considered? Condoms are not a restricted substance. Anyone can buy them at a store.
We're not "down the rabbit hole," unless Michael Scaperlanda is referring to the rabbit hole of recognizing that children are individuals and not just the property of their parents and subject to the full control of their parents.
Perhaps that is a rabbit hole for Scaperlanda. A certain brand of Catholics seems to protect individual rights from conception to birth, completely forget about them from birth until the age of eighteen, and then suddenly start defending individual rights again. But that approach should seem extremely suspect to anyone who retains the ability to critically reason and not just accept a certain interpretation of the word of God.
