Time Out Please!
I do not think most posts are advocating fornication. Nor denigrating monogomy and marital faithfulness.
But I think, as Christians (both Orthodox, Catholic and Evangelical) we have differing views (and not between each communion, but WITHIN each communion) regarding the sexual promiscuity in the modern world, especially as regards unbelievers.
Some would preach abstinence only (preaching to the choir?); others would support teaching the virutes of abstinence for those with ears to hear, but protection for those who either don't care to hear, or those who hear but have great difficulty with their hormones; still others would maybe say, "boys will be boys" or "girls will be girls" - wink, wink (but I challenge ANY father, Christian or non-Christian to REALY say the latter, so of course it is a double standard that is patently wrong, from a paternal view, because boys can only be boys with someone else's girl!).
My personal point of view is to make the case for monogamy and virginity til marriage, both to those in the Church and those outside. But realize, as George has pointed out that most of those outside the Church and many within will cast their vote with "nature." So, protection should be a part of their educated choice in the matter.
Condoms don't stop everything, but they stop alot!
