Swedish Church Gives Teens Sex Diplomas

"After attending a course entitled "Love and Sexuality", the teenagers in the southeastern town of Rödeby were given a certificate and badge stating they were "qualified for sex".

Vicar Mats-Ola Nylen said the course had been organized by a man purporting to come from the Swedish Association for Sexuality Education (RFSU), but the church later found out he hadn't worked for the organization in years.

Suspicions were raised after parents complained to Nylen about the certificates, referred to as "knullborgarmärke", saying their teenage children weren't ready for sex.

They were also upset over the use of colloquial phrases like "giving someone a blow job".

" Giving 14-year-olds a certificate saying they were ready to "shag" was sending a mixed message, Nylen said."

I don't know what's worse: 14 year olds with 'Qualified for Sex' badges or 20 year olds with those stupid virginity rings.
I think religion should take a step away from people sexuality all together. Several steps.

Have you noticed that whenever an institution tries to control the lives of "it's people," everything ends up fucked up?
