Petition Against Government-Led Sex Education in Schools Permanent Website

The organisers of this petition, Amanda and Mark Lewin, have created a website to house permanently the over 2,000 signatories to this petition which closed on 25th March, Solemnity of the Annunication.

Here's a reminder of what it said:
We, the undersigned, call upon the Bishops of England and Wales and the Catholic Education Service to fulfil their duty as guardians of our Catholic Faith and unequivocally reject recent Government measures forcing Catholic schools to teach what is explicitly condemned by the Church, viz: presenting active homosexuality as an acceptable alternative lifestyle, and providing information on the nature - and provision - of contraception and abortion services. Compliance on the part of the Bishops and the CES in such measures would effectively render our schools no longer Catholic in any meaningful sense, and would place the faith and moral life of our children in jeopardy. As Catholic parents, teachers and pastors, we earnestly beg of you, our Shepherds in Christ, that you do not allow this to happen.
The plan now is to send a letter, briefing and result of the petition to Rome, and to all the Bishops of England and Wales.

Amanda and Mark write:
Please keep this in your prayers as even if this evil Bill is not passed we still have Catholic schools teaching abhorrent and blatant sex education to our children.

May the Holy Family and St Margaret Clitherow continue to pray for us all.
