Always Banging on About Sex
Rod Dreher reflects ruefully on Pope Francis’s speech to Congress:
If one draws the impression that Pope Francis doesn’t really care about these things [the sexual revolution], one could hardly be blamed. I am thinking right now about the Catholic high school religion teacher who wrote to me after Francis’s famous “Who am I to judge?” remark regarding homosexuality. He said that even though the pope wasn’t turning away from Catholic teaching, that’s how it was received by his students, who said, “Hey, the Pope has no problem with it.” So there’s that.
And then this from The Economist:
Many teenagers today have seen a greater number and variety of sex acts than the most debauched Mughal emperor managed in a lifetime.
