Nairobi, 16 May, 2021 / 7:30 pm (ACI Africa).
Ahead of the 2021 International Day of Families (IDF), officials of CitizenGo in Africa, a Catholic organization spearheading family issues, have cautioned the leadership of the United Nations (UN) against the push for “gender ideology and Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE).”
In their May 9 petition addressed to the UN’s Secretary General, António Guterres, the officials of CitizenGo in Africa want the annual commemoration to be used to defend the family.
They say that the UN chief has been “quoted severally attacking the family by pushing for gender ideology and Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE).”
“CSE is the worst curriculum that can ever be pushed to our children as it not only sexualizes them but also makes them a ready market for the abortion and contraceptive industries,” officials of CitizenGo on the continent say in the petition published ahead of the May 15 commemoration.
Established by the UN in 1994 as a way of recognizing the value of families in the society, this year’s IDF is being guided by the theme, “Socially just transition towards sustainable development: the role of digital technologies on social development and well-being of all.”
