Last Friday, I was made to teach RE (I’m an English teacher and not trained to teach RE). The subject was surrogacy. The materials we were provided with offered pupils the option to fill in the blanks to questions like, “Most Christians would think God would be nice/mean to people helping others to have a baby.” The materials were promoting surrogacy as an acceptable way to have children.
I tried, my best as far as I could, to teach my pupils that actually, surrogacy is not okay in the eyes of God, for the reasons we all understand, here. But I’m not sure I convinced all of the pupils. I know I wasn’t the best prepared, I felt anxious about it all week.
Do I go to confession? Did I commit a sin?
Thanks for reading. Any feedback/advice would be gratefully received.
