You're the one who posted a video of someone arguing that Jesus was a libertarian and Ayn Rand is compatible with Catholicism... yet I'm the sophist?

And I'm saying that you don't understand libertarianism. It's a comprehensive philosophy. It would be completely nonsensical to say, "I'm an economic libertarian, a political Marxist, and a cultural reactionary," because those stances are all strongly incompatible with one another. Similarly, it's nonsensical to say, "I'm an economic libertarian, but a Catholic for everything else." The latter quite explicitly tells you that everything you have is a completely gratuitous gift from God, that private property carries a "social mortgage" on it, and that you do not have the right to abandon the poor (on the pain of damnation) simply because they've made bad decisions.

I was anticipating a counter-argument from you and attempting to address it preemptively. Yes, classical economic liberalism has been very successful at generating wealth and innovation. No, it's not because negative liberty is the only sort secured by a just government. Since libertarianism is wrong in almost all areas that aren't economic, I'm not inclined to give it much credit in that sphere either. If an algorithm gives you the wrong answer on 19/20 problems, then it's a sh!tty algorithm, and should be discarded. The success of classical liberal economics can be better explained by other factors.

I love Bishop Barron's offerings and gobble them up every week. This is a good reminder just how strange Christianity truly is. Chesterton's works do a good job with that as well.

So it looks to me that the main complaint is that the program was not written for primary use by the parents. However, that does not preclude the parents from teaching the material to their children.

I see the response as an overreaction, though I do find it useful. It is of the utmost importance that parents teach their children about sexual morality, especially by encouraging chastity. Even though I do not agree with the article's tone, if it can convince more mothers and fathers to be proactive in their children's education, then it has done its part.

ETA: The "sex ed program" is not compulsory and I'm really wondering if we'll ever see it.

It shouldn't take all that long to find St John Paul II's authoritative exhortation that they cannot happen.
