Eastern Europe is rejecting failed sexual revolution…and progressives are outraged

May 2, 2019 by

by Jonathon Van Maren, LifeSite: Nothing irritates progressive commentators quite so much as watching nations reject the failed experiment of the Sexual Revolution. Despite the fact that the so-called sexual liberty we enjoy in the West has ravaged families, spawned a rarely-reported on epidemic of sexually transmitted diseases, and gutted the institution of marriage—all while failing utterly to deliver on the happiness that was promised—it makes progressives nervous when political leaders...

Playing with fire: Our mishandling of sex may send society backwards

Apr 11, 2019 by

by Gavin Ashenden: The discovery of fire, and more importantly learning to manage fire, was the moment when civilisation took a leap forward. The discovery of sex for its own sake and the mishandling of sex, may send our culture toppling backwards. Fire and sex share much in common. Used well they work to warm and create; used badly they destroy. Judaism and Christianity offered a clear moral code for sex. However much fun it may be, it is best contained within marriage and for making...

It turns out that sexual liberation isn’t that liberating

Apr 9, 2019 by

by David French, National Review. Over at The Atlantic, Bradford Wilcox and Lyman Stone have penned a fascinating piece exploring the roots of American unhappiness and tying it our nation’s “sex recession” — a rather marked decrease in sexual activity by young adults. As Wilcox and Stone note: The share of young adults having sex at least once a week has fallen from 59 percent in 1972 to 49 percent in 2018. This decline is far steeper among men: down from 58 percent of young men having sex at...

A National Survey of Sexual Attitudes and Lifestyle poll has found that the average age for this untimely event is 17, but “around 40 per cent of women and 26 per cent of men do not feel like their first sexual experience happened at the ‘right time’.” (‘Trust me, there’s never a good time to lose your virginity’, Telegraph,...

LGBT movement now claims to represent ‘family values’, labeling Christians ‘dangerous’

Nov 23, 2018 by

by Jonathon Van Maren, LifeSite: Once upon a time, when the Sexual Revolution was in its infancy, social conservatives were mocked for their “family values” and the inherent stodginess that increasingly political phrase seemed to imply. The boring squares with their white picket fences and marriages and (often) string of children represented everything the sexual revolutionaries wanted to escape, and everything they wanted to liberate society from. Sexual liberation offered people an...

Believe in Christian sexual ethics? Then you have enemies

Nov 17, 2018 by

by Paul Huxley, Christian Concern: If you hold to a biblically faithful position on sexuality and gender, you have enemies. I don’t know anyone who wants to have enemies. And Christians are called to love their enemies. But, try as we might, we can no longer ignore the reality of people who hate what we stand for and seek to do us harm. We’re unlikely to be physically attacked, or thrown in a police cell – although that has happened to some UK street preachers – but we can be sure that...
