This week I'm posting over at Relevant magazine. It's easy to criticize the Church for all the ways they fail at talking about sex, but how do we go about improving the conversation?
I'd love to hear your thoughts on the matter, so please leave a comment and let's keep the conversation going.
There are no lack of posts these days about how the Church has misled entire generations when it comes to sex. It is a stark example of the best of intentions gone wrong. What began as a reaction to an increasingly sex-obsessed culture has unraveled into an avoidance of the obvious (at best) or a guilt-laden, shame filled diatribe (at worst).
Plenty of articles have been written to expose those lies in an effort to help us let go of misguided thinking. Until you understand where your beliefs have gone astray, you won't see the need to change them.
But then what?
Here are a few cornerstones that need to shape the way the Church should talk about sex going forward.
