The history of HV, sex, and porn on Καθολικός διάκονος

Here is a pretty comprehensive overview of matters sexual on my humble blog. I do not intend to become a one trick pony, or a one note song on this matter, but it seems to me to be at the heart of so much that is misunderstood. The separation of sex from procreation, accomplished via contraception, is the root issue. It is almost as fundamental an error as the divorce between faith and reason. In fact, our contraceptive mindset flows from this divorce, which is precisely why the church's teaching on sexuality is considered archaic and retrograde. Stated perhaps far too simplistically, faith and reason split as a result of the Protestant schism, with Luther's turn to the subject on matters of faith, a rupture that was only widened by the Enlightenment.
