Chastity – The New Sexual RevolutionNumerous Ongoing Nationally Known Speakers
WAKEUP’s dynamic Chastity – The New Sexual Revolution program has taken off like a rocket thanks to the work of our all volunteer committee. In the past year WAKEUP has brought chastity speakers and distributed chastity literature to 7th through 12th grade students in numerous Catholic schools in the Washington Metropolitan area. In the near future, we hope and pray we will be able to expand our efforts throughout all of Maryland.
WAKEUP has formed a partnership with the well known Pope John Paul II Cultural Center (JPIICC) (just across from the Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington) to bring nationally known chastity speakers to JPIICC. This institution was in the news this April because of Pope Benedict XVI’s visit during his visit to America. The magnificent statue of Our Lady of America upon its recent arrival from Italy graced the rotunda at the JPIICC. WAKEUP has consecrated its Chastity – The New Sexual Revolution program to Our Lady of America, whose principal message is the Message of Purity.
The JPIICC - WAKEUP partnership has planned several important chastity talks to be delivered by nationally known speakers such as Dr. Janet Smith, Angela King, and Mark Houck during the fall of 2008. Attendance at these events will be drawn from the Washington, Maryland and Northern Virginia areas. Some of the same speakers will also participate in WAKEUP’s special event days at the JPIICC during the March for Life in January 2009. We are especially excited about reaching the thousands of high school students who come to the March for Life annually and are looking for something of special interest before and afterwards.
During the 2008-2009 school year WAKEUP’s chastity programming will continue to provide speakers to Catholic schools in our area. WAKEUP will also continue to bring nationally known speakers to the JPIICC for periodic talks on subjects related to Chastity – The New Sexual Revolution.
Chastity – The New Sexual Revolution
Our mission is to awaken the world to the current Culture of Death, and to change hearts to embrace the Culture of Life. Our current plan is to draw public attention to the erosion of the traditional family, the plight of the unborn, and to promote Chastity – The New Sexual Revolution, to our youth. This new thrust, promoting the restoration of traditional family values, and the practice of purity and chastity among our youth, will reduce sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), and curb the avalanche of out of wedlock pregnancies and abortions that now take place in America and throughout the world.
Promiscuity a Virtue – VIRGINITY a Problem
Socially liberal elites continue the hijacking of our culture by controlling the entertainment media (TV, movies, rock music, MTV) and heavily influencing new technologies such as the internet, cell phones and ipods. These forces have transformed the social fabric of America and have made promiscuity a virtue and virginity a problem to be solved. Our youth, in both public and private schools, including Catholic schools, are heavily impacted by these forces.
