Catholics Do What? (21 Days to Understanding the Catholic Church’s Teachings on Sex and Marriage)
October 1, 2014
One of the hardest parts about Catholicism is explaining it to other people. Especially those pesky “pelvic issues,” if you will.
We live in a sex-saturated culture, but not exactly a sexually literate one. So we spend lots and lots of time chatting about sex and having sex and looking at sex, but there is a relative lack of knowledge about the real thing.
Some of the hardest conversations, whether they take place from the pulpit or around the water cooler or the kitchen table, involve sex, marriage, contraception, homosexuality, and reproductive technologies.
I want to demystify some of these topics and try my best to put into laymen terms what the Church teaches in these areas, and why. This isn’t an exhaustive explanation of any of these issues, by any means, but I hope it’s a good starting point.
