SEX WITHOUT CONSEQUENCES & THE DEATH OF THE WEST

Margaret Sanger, a founder of planned parenthood imagined a "paradise".    She did not live to see the fulfillment of this "paradise"-- but it has arrived.  Her "paradise" has taken a horrendous toll in terms of not only souls, but also lives lost.  It has led us down a path of cultural suicide and could eventually if not recognized, bring about the death of the West.  

Like the serpent's promise to Adam and Eve, Margaret Sanger visualized a world where sex reigned free of commitment and consequences. 



"We must teach men the overwhelming power of this radiant force...through sex mankind may attain the great spiritual illumination which will transform the world, which will light up the only path to an earthly paradise. So must we necessarily and inevitably conceive of sex-expression"  Margaret Sanger

In her outlook the libido of the individual becomes the sole purpose of sex.  One friend said of Ms. Sanger, "She was the first person I ever knew who was openly an ardent propagandist for 'joys of the flesh'."

In less than a century the majority of the West has adopted this same hedonistic view of human sexuality.  Seeking out the "joys of the flesh" has become the norm while the idea of restraint of the libido i.e., abstinence before marriage, is seen as unrealistic and unhealthy repression.  Sexuality has been separated from procreation which of course requires massive amounts of birth control to sustain this libido dominated lifestyle.  

Fruitless and childless sex has now even become an entitlement.  In fact, the right to be free from all natural consequences of sex is subsidized by the state and is called "health care".  Our rights involving sex are increasing all the time ...We have the right to indulge our libido in whatever way we want with whoever we please;  the right to fruitless sex;  the right to change our sex;  the right to "terminate" the consequence of sex;  the right to "protected" sex;  the right to pornographic sex;  the right to be free of all intolerance related to sodomy;  we are even fast gaining the "right" to proclaim any and all of it "marriage". 


This fruitless or childless sex portends poorly for the West's demographics, to say the least.  If reproduction of the human race is not a function of marital sex then marriage can be commandeered by any type of "sex-partnership".   The "unitive" and the "procreative" aspects of sex must never to be separated i.e. every sex act must be open to the possibility of life. It is a simple concept with profound consequences for the future of the West.      


When the unitive aspect of sex is not accomplished, i.e. when man and women fail to physically unite as God intended -- then any of the following can result: IVF, human-animal hybrids, pornography/masterbation and cloning. And when the procreative aspect of sex is destroyed by the use of artificial birth control then any form of perverse sex becomes acceptable, a birth dearth occurs, real love and intimacy are destroyed while the man and woman become objects for the fulfillment of each others desires.

The restoration of the unitive and the procreative aspects of sex would re-establish the reign of natural law in human sexuality and prevent perversions of not only sex but also of the creation of life.

True freedom and liberation flows from following the laws of God who is the author of nature and creation.  
"...[W]hat looks like "liberation" turns into its opposite and shows its diabolical visage...all this has already been described with precision in the first pages of the Bible.  The core of the temptation for man and of his fall is contained in programmatic statement:  'You will be like God'.  "Like God"  ...means free of the laws of the Creator, free of the laws of nature herself, absolute lord of one's own destiny. Man continually desires only one thing:  to be his own creator and his own master.  But what awaits us at the end of this road is certainly not paradise."  Card. Joseph Ratzinger, The Ratzinger Report.
