In light of the never-ending and escalating sex scandals plaguing the Roman Catholic Church, I would like to highlight a post a did last year, on October 24, entitled Controlling Sexual Desire. In the comment box of that post, I predicted that the Catholic views on sexuality would lead to an INCREASE, not a decrease in sexual perversity. Here is what I wrote in that comment box on November 1, 2009 to a Catholic commentator on my blog.
"Here is the consequence of your Catholic model. People would become so sexually repressed that they would start acting out in perverse ways. It would lead to an increase in sexual perversity and not a decrease, as people try to find an outlet for their sexual desires. I could give examples of men or women incarcerated in prisons....."( November 1, 2009: Controlling Sexual Desires, October 24, 2009)
How remarkable that I was able to predict an increase in sexual perversion several months before the scandals broke. I pray that people who are following Catholic sexuality will take a hard and serious look at those teachings, and see whether such teachings are in accordance with scripture or not. I am not against Catholics but what I am against is how they try to push their version of sexuality on the masses, without respecting the fact that there are those of us who hold to a more Biblical view of sexuality, which differs from the Catholic view.
ADDENDUM: An interesting conversation is going on here on this blog with me and some Catholic women about the sexual abuse scandal. For part I see here.
