In a “Tbilisi Declaration,” the congress warned that “a titanic contest over the nature of society and the fate of children … has now come to a head.” “On the one side are gathered the forces combining revolution with retrogression, novelty with depravity, and cries of liberation with a new slavery,” the declaration pointed out. “This movement elevates sexual desire and atomistic individualism to the highest of human values. It denies any natural order to human life. And it degrades children into nuisances or tools to serve adult ends.
