The Dangers Presented by the "Gay Rights" Movement, and a Response - Father John Harvey

Father Harvey summarizes the basic claims put forth by the “Gay rights” movement, noting some of the dangerous judicial actions supporting it, and then presents a legal, moral, and philosophical critique of the homosexualist claims as found in the writings of leading Catholic authors.  Read more...

The Dilemma of Same-Sex Marriage - DAVID ORGON COOLIDGE

Americans already are being inundated with competing rhetorics of family values versus civil rights, and with contrasting images of “traditional” families compared with same-sex “wedding” ceremonies.  Read more...

The Downside of Risk Reduction - Matthew Hanley

Hall of Fame quarterback Troy Aikman sustained at least seven concussions over a twelve year NFL career.   Read more...

The End of Marriage in Scandinavia - Stanley Kurtz

Marriage is slowly dying in Scandinavia. A majority of children in Sweden and Norway are born out of wedlock. Sixty percent of first-born children in Denmark have unmarried parents. Not coincidentally, these countries have had something close to full gay marriage for a decade or more.  Read more...

The Failure of Sex Education - BARBARA DAFOE WHITEHEAD

Comprehensive sex education, as now taught throughout the United States and Canada, is not straight talk about sex as it claims, but rather a highly selective slice of information based on a decidedly narrow ideological position.  Read more...

The Forgotten Generation Reaching Out to Catholic Singles - Mary Beth Bonacci

As I work with single adults, I hear one question over and over: "Why haven't I ever heard this before? Why didn't I hear this sooner, before I made all of these mistakes?"  Read more...

The Gay Divorcees - Charles C.W. Cooke

Announcing the results of his long-term “evolution” on the subject last week, President Obama revived the debate over gay marriage. In the widespread discussion, however, there is one question that’s rarely asked: How interested are gay couples in getting married?  Read more...

The Greatest Misconception - Dr. RICHARD WETZEL, M.D.

Healthy sexual relationships are the result of healthy choices, which must be based on reality. Problems arise when people base their attitudes on falsehoods and distortions.  Read more...

The Health Risks of Gay Sex - John R. Diggs, Jr., M.D.

As a physician, it is my duty to assess behaviors for their impact on health and wellbeing. When something is beneficial, such as exercise, good nutrition, or adequate sleep, it is my duty to recommend it. Likewise, when something is harmful, such as smoking, overeating, alcohol or drug abuse, and homosexual sex, it is my duty to discourage it.  Read more...

The Hook-Up Culture: When Sex Becomes Sport - tothesource

However the Kobe Bryant case is resolved, there is one thing we do know: whether the sex was voluntary or coerced, Bryant surely intended it to be no more than a hook-up.  Read more...

The How and Why of Natural Family Planning - MARY SHIVANANDAN

In the broadest sense, natural family planning refers to methods of avoiding (or achieving) pregnancy that cooperate with a couple's fertility rather than suppress it through the use of drugs or contraceptive devices.  Read more...

The Immorality of Nice Fornication - Anthony Esolen

The strongest case that Nice Fornicators make for themselves is that they are “committed” to one another in love, and that this commitment carries sufficient moral weight to justify their actions.  Read more...

The Immorality of Sterilization - Fr. William Saunders

Why does the Church teach that sterilization is wrong?  Read more...

The Joy of Sexual Values - JOHN LEO

Support for legal abortion is slipping in the U.S. It also appears that the high divorce rate and liberated lifestyles of the boomer generation may now be producing more cautious, conservative attitudes among the young.  Read more...

The Knot That Can’t Be Tied - Mark Lowery

Man’s sexual energies are of extraordinary power and complexity. Is this energy something we can use however we wish, or is there some objective standard to which this energy should be conformed? The Western tradition, like many other traditions, has consistently held that there is such an objective standard, and it is the reality called “marriage.” Today, however, many think that marriage can be whatever they want it to be.  Read more...

The Latest Skirmish in the Condom Wars - Family Concerns

The Physician’s Consortium, representing more than 25,000 doctors, has called for the resignation of Dr. Jeffrey Koplan, the director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC). They charge that the CDC has known that a U. S. Health and Human Services (HHS) study found no convincing proof that condoms provide protection against many sexually transmitted diseases.  Read more...

The Liberal Arts and Sexual Morality - Peter Kreeft

Are the liberal arts and sexual morality connected? There is strong evidence that they are, for if we graph their development over the last half-century, we will see an almost identical curve of accelerating decline. Although this proves nothing, it certainly suggests something worth exploring more deeply.  Read more...

The Long Conversion of Oscar Wilde - Andrew McCracken

Oscar Wilde is widely celebrated as an artist persecuted for his homosexuality, a sort of protomartyr for the cause of gay rights. The current celebration of Wilde as gay martyr is certainly one legitimate interpretation of his life, but it oversimplifies his complexity; indeed, it ignores the major movement of his life, a life that may also be seen as a long and difficult conversion to the Roman Catholic Church.  Read more...

The Marrying Kind - Elizabeth Kristol

When all is said and done, Andrew Sullivan's book Virtually Normal shows that gay activists are not just interested in admitting a new group of people to marriage (although that would be revolutionary enough).  Read more...

The meaning of sex - David Quinn

We like to think we live in an age of honest talk about sex, but it isn’t true.  Read more...

The Meaning of Sexual Differences - J. Budziszewski

"I teach a course on 'Philosophy of Human Sexuality,' and I must have read fifty to a hundred books on the topic. On the Meaning of Sex is, quite simply, number one, especially for this generation. It is deep yet clear, reverent yet punchy, sound yet relevant, idealistic yet realistic, thoughtful yet exciting. It makes boredom impossible. The style is as beautiful as the content." - Peter Kreeft  Read more...

The Moral Birds and the Bees - Roger Scruton

In the England of the Forties, when my parents were courting, terms like "moral," "decent," and "clean living" applied primarily to sexual behavior. Immorality meant sleeping around (and how innocent the word "sleeping" now sounds!); indecency meant unsolicited advances; dirtiness meant whatever put the sexual object before the loving subject.  Read more...

The Need to Read Carefully: A Response to Alice von Hildebrand’s Critique of Christopher West - Janet E. Smith

One of the benefits of being “on the circuit” is the opportunity to meet some fascinating and remarkable people, whether they are other speakers, organizers, or attendees.   Read more...

The Neglected Heart: The Emotional Dangers of Premature Sexual Involvement - Thomas Lickona

In discussions of teen sex, much is said about the dangers of pregnancy and disease—but far less about the emotional hazards.  Read more...

The Non-Factsheet - Dale O’Leary, Dean Byrd, Richard P. Fitzgibbons & James E. Phelan
