Secular Press Business Insider: Time To Admit It: The Church Has Always Been Right On Birth Control...

a Friday morning surprise.

Anyone who takes even the most cursory look at what birth control has done to women will immediately see that it certainly wasn't the boon for equality they expected.  Girls as young as 13 can obtain birth control, without their parents consent, from Planned Parenthood.  By the age of 18, many of these same girls will have lost count of how many sexual partners they've had.

Wander around Facebook and witness 14 year old girls showing off their cleavage and making fish trout lips. These girls have come to believe the only thing they have to offer is their sexuality, and offer it they do.  Watch as the boys wander from girl to girl like so many bees pollinating spring flowers. 

What's really ironic is Margaret Sanger, eugenicist and often referred to as the "mother of birth control", envisioned a world where blacks would embrace birth control, so as to limit the population of these "undesirables."  Little did she know it would be white upper-class women clamoring for the magic pill. 

In short order, though, it wasn't just for married ladies.  Girls were soon acting as slutty as they wanted without fear of pregnancy.  Wow!  What a delight for the men.  No more responsibility for potential offspring.  For the times pregnancy resulted from such behavior, abortion became the back-up plan.

Girls have come to believe the only way to "get a guy" is to sexually service him.   Girls in middle-school are performing oral sex in the rest rooms at school and they're calling it "love."   Newsflash: a boy who makes a girl kneel on the floor of a filthy restroom and places his penis in her mouth is not exhibiting a loving attitude toward that girl.  These poor girls don't even realize how they are being demeaned and disrespected.  For them, this has become "normal."

Girls are treated much like an used Kleenex.  Get married?  Why should the guy marry her when she's willing to move in and provide free sex and free maid service.  How's that for some self-esteem?  Another newsflash:  couples who live together before marriage are 50% more likely to get divorced.  Considering the divorce rate, it becomes an almost 100% certainty that cohabiting couples will get divorced.

What about the boys?  No longer do they have to grow into men who honor and protect women.  You can forget even common courtesies towards women.  Hold a door?  Give up their seat?  Forget that!  We're all equal now.  Women are no longer the stabilizing influence on society.  They're as unstable as the men, perhaps more so.

If birth control is the liberals panacea for unwanted pregnancies, then why do abortions number in the hundreds of millions?  Is it because, as they love to say, women can't access it?  Anyone who believes that has not visited Planned Parenthood.  The PP in my town does a booming business providing birth control to young girls. Can't afford it?  That's a lie, and everyone knows it. 

Does this all seem like a lot to heap on the back of a pack of pills?  It is.  But it's true.

From:  Business Insider:
Painting the Catholic Church as "out of touch" is like shooting fish in a barrel, what with the funny hats and gilded churches. And nothing makes it easier than the Church's stance against contraception.
Many people, (including our editor) are wondering why the Catholic Church doesn't just ditch this requirement. They note that most Catholics ignore it, and that most everyone else finds it divisive, or "out-dated." C'mon! It's the 21st century, they say! Don't they SEE that it's STUPID, they scream.
Here's the thing, though: the Catholic Church is the world's biggest and oldest organization. It has buried all of the greatest empires known to man, from the Romans to the Soviets. It has establishments literally all over the world, touching every area of human endeavor. It's given us some of the world's greatest thinkers, from Saint Augustine on down to René Girard. When it does things, it usually has a good reason. Everyone has a right to disagree, but it's not that they're a bunch of crazy old white dudes who are stuck in the Middle Ages.  read the rest
