Preach to teach

To the editor: Catholic parents are primarily responsible for the religious education of their children. That includes subjects like birth control, homosexuality, pre-marital sex, pornography and abortion. 95% of adult Catholics receive their entire adult education concerning Catholicism through the Sunday homily.
