Oh, NOW the Catholic Church worries about sex and kids?

The latest Repeal Equality Campaign ad (embedded below) just outright says that gay sex will be taught in Maine's grade schools. Suddenly, it seems, the Catholic Church, which is a major backer of this campaign, is concerned about kids learning about sex at a young age, and is concerned about the appropriateness of what they are learning.

Why weren't they concerned eight years ago, when the Boston Phoenix began reporting on the sex scandal that still embroils the Catholic Church? And frankly, why weren't they concerned 50 years ago, when the problems first started coming to light?

But better late than never, I guess. The sad part is they're still ignoring and distorting the truth to serve their own ends.
