ABOUT THIS COURSE

Today we live in a world of sexual license and permissiveness with very minimal standards when it comes to sexual relations Most people today think that as long as both partners are willing, then there’s nothing wrong or immoral about virtually ANY kind of sexual activity.

 

But now contrast this loose view of sex with the traditional teachings of the Catholic Church. The Church says that all contraceptive, non-marital or unnatural sex is sinful, and that the only proper place for sexual acts is within the context of a true marriage And as you probably know, when the Church says these things, people get angry. They say that the Catholic teaching on sex is so “old-fashioned” and outdated. They say it is “intolerant” “hateful” or “discriminatory”. Popular culture presents sexual activity of all kinds as “natural” and “good” while ridiculing sexual abstinence and Christian morality.

 

These controversies regarding sex are some of the biggest of our day. Innumerable heresies attack the Church from all sides These attacks on the Church fly around like a swarm of locusts – blog posts, articles, news pieces, YouTube videos all tearing down, criticizing or misconstruing the One True Faith. But just because an idea is “new” or “popular” doesn’t mean it’s right.

 

The loose sexual morality of pop culture should NOT go unchecked and unanswered. No, these ideas need to be TESTED against the standards of reason and divine revelation St. Robert Bellarmine once said that it’s necessary that heretics understand that in the camps of Catholics “there are those who understand their faith and are ready to engage them head on.” JPII said that a defense of the Catholic teaching on sexual morality is “an INESCAPABLE requirement of the work of evangelization”. There is a tremendous amount of harm done when people don’t understand these teachings properly. That is why this program was created.
