Public Fury At 'Offensive' Church Comic

13-05-07

CHURCH leaders were under attack last night for publishing an 'offensive' comic book designed to teach teenagers about sex and morality.

The book, titled The Joy of Shame, is designed as a series of 'life lessons' for 13 to 15 year-olds and includes cartoon-style illustrations.

The images teach children about reproduction, sexuality and respect for authority.

But furious parents have hit back saying the book will corrupt their children and do nothing to address social problems.

Tom Logan, a civil engineer from Giffnock, said: "I've never seen anything so repulsive and demented in my life.

"Our teenagers have enough problems growing up these days without clergymen trying to shove things down their throats."

A spokesman for the Scottish Council of Churches said: "I presume you are an homosexual."
