Sex education

On 2005-11-06, in line with Catholic Church teaching, he criticized the project of a law of compulsory sex education which was under study in Congress, stating that, in the case of its approval, he would "call Christians to civil disobedience". This statement was a followup to similarly harsh criticism by Archbishop of La Plata, Héctor Aguer.
