A Healthy Attitude Towards Sex.
What is needed in the Church today is not the traditional phobias and taboos about sex but a healthy acceptance of what is a natural part of life.
I include homosexual activity in this acceptance because apart from procreation sex creates intimacy, trust, and love in a relationship.
For far too long the Church has hidden its head in the sand and enforced silence about sexuality.
This has created fear and repression.
It is the cause of the sex abuse scandals.
It is time for the Church to realize that it has been mistaken about this and to teach congregations to have a healthy attitude towards sex.
