It's Sunday and the sermon for today is, "How to Have Sex" by Andrew Klavan.
"What?" you ask with open-mouthed shock at the indelicacy of that title. "How can THAT be a Sunday sermon?"
Well, first because it happens to be Sunday and I want to post this. But second, and most important, sex is one of the most defining and important aspects of determining the shared moral values of society. So we all need a lecture about it once in a while. There are very few experiences in life that are virtually universal, that are as potentially powerful, and that have as many life-changing (both beginning and ending) consequences as sex. Try as we might, it is impossible to remove the moral component from sex. Can't be done. Sex is either moral or immoral; it is never neutral.
This video by Klavan was made three years ago, but it is more relevant now than ever. The recent Democratic National Convention put sex front and center with its WAR ON WOMEN campaign slogan. 30-something co-eds from prestigious universities pounded the podium and paraded before us all their right to have sex promiscuously and without consequence. Anything less constituted WAR!
But, as Mr. Klavan points out, there is no such thing as sex without consequence. To pretend otherwise leaves people broken, damaged and destroyed -- it's like being a Democrat!
