In responding to the thread Pope v. Science on Condoms by LiveUninhibited, I could not help but wonder. What the church teaches is abstinence until marriage right? This has become a religious stance. What I want to know is why is it considered JUST a religious stance? Teaching proper use of condoms and other such protection is important but why is it considered a right wing religious conspiracy to force abstinence on our children? Shouldnt the idea be stressed to our youth, at this point especially? The next generation coming into their own is playfully referred to as generation sex. They are taking nudes and sending them to friends, spamming them across the internet. Girls and boys have sex with numerous partners; even if they think Oh, it is just oral, it is still sex. I am looking to hear some real opinions on the topic because if there is one thing we all know, each generation has to be more shocking than the last and looking at the newest generation, which is a little terrifying.
