The Catholic League has condemned the recommendation by the administration of Boston Mayor Thomas Menino to distribute condoms in public schools, calling it “deplorable public policy” and “an assault on the moral values and religious sensibilities of taxpayers.”

Catholic League Operations Director C.J. Doyle stated: “For the City of Boston to use public funds and public facilities to promote condom use is nothing less than anĀ attack on the moral and religious convictions of Catholic citizens of Boston. It is not government neutrality towards religion, but outright government hostility to religious values. Tax-payers, in violation of their consciences and their religious freedom rights, will be forced to subsidize behavior many find to be profoundly immoral. This policy will undermine the family, encourage teen promiscuity, and exacerbate the very problems it purports to solve.”
