The last couple weeks there has been more focus and discussion on contraception than the last few decades combined and many people think it is about time.
Everyone knows that contraception is evil because it encourages young people to have sex. It sends a clear signal that sex is normal when the message should be that sexual desires and relations are clearly abnormal. Obviously, without contraception teens’ hormones just would not work properly and they would never think about or want sex, just as their parents and grandparents all avoided it during the so-called sexual revolution that started in the 1960’s. Everyone also knows that there were no teen pregnancies or out-of-wedlock births in the 1950’s or decades previous to that. It’s common knowledge that young people did not have sexual urges back then, and those who did had it beaten out of them. That’s the way it should be.
But it is not only young people who are destroyed by the easy availability of contraception. Without condoms and the pill and other methods of keeping sperm from its intended target there would be no prostitution. It would not be the oldest profession in the world if condoms weren’t also the oldest product in the world. They go hand in hand. And that’s the way men and women should be—hand in hand and nothing in anything else.
This doesn’t even begin to touch upon the tragedy wrought upon families that use birth control methods. Husbands and wives who could have 15 to 18 children to help them with their businesses and around the house—just like the good old days—now find themselves limited to 1.5 children. Seriously, what can they do with half a child? Sex outside of marriage is just wrong. Within marriage it is solely for the purpose of procreation. If you don’t want children then don’t get married. Marriage is only for one man and one woman in order to have babies.
It is bad enough that condoms are now advertised on television and the radio. Those ads need to be banned again, and replaced with more ads for things like Viagra and Rogaine and Lexus, things that make men more attractive to women, who will then want to have their babies.
Rush Limbaugh is a hero for speaking the truth. He’s a family values man so there’s no doubt he doesn’t use birth control and that he and his new wife will soon bring more beautiful babies into the world. That’s probably why he divorced his first three wives, because they didn’t have children together, and that’s the purpose of marriage. Please pray for him to be blessed with a baby soon. And just say no to contraception.
