"Wink Wink: have fun, do good." Church Message at Seaside Adolescent Conference?

Although the Adolescent Sexuality Conference hasn't happened yet, it's April 6th and 7th, Amy Johnson's past article shows how her mind works.  In "Wink Wink: have fun, do good."  she feels that the game "Wink, Wink" is appropriate.  Here's the picture in her article.

The problem for us as Catholics is that the things shown in this picture are not option for our children, or us. Although most Catholics use birth control, the Church teaches that there is more freedom in Natural Family Planning but abstinence for the un-married.

She wants to circumvent many church teachings with her workshop. And the State of Oregon is helping her.  She can be reached at

There is no information on this woman's background or religious belief, if any.  The people running this conference are not parents and not balanced in their view of sexuality.  Active homosexuality behavior and total sexual license is their message.  Plus this conference is for "adolescents up to age 24".  What is that all about?

If the the State of Oregon let Amy speak on Church issues and sex, why not let a priest or minister give their church's view and have real education or is this all contraception driven and no other views are welcome?   Wink, wink.

Matthew 18:6-7

Temptations to Sin.

 6d “Whoever causes one of these little ones* who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a great millstone hung around his neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea. 
7* Woe to the world because of things that cause sin! Such things must come, but woe to the one through whom they come!
