Are you sure it isn’t YOU who have all the hang-ups?
You’re telling me after 25 years of my marriage that a marital embrace that treats my wife as a person, ot a thing, in conformity with the teaching and the mind of the Church, is “negative.”
According to you.
You’re telling me some kind of magic show offers more nerve ending pleasure impulses per second and is therefore wiser than the healthiest of respect for God’s design of sexuality.
“not the image of two people ready to pray”
You apparently have a VERY repressed idea of “ready to pray.”
What would you advise a couple who want children and can’t have them: “Whatever you do, don’t PRAY!!!” And whatever else you do, don’t become one of those “NFP supporters.”
You’re saying the Catholic Church is wrong to oppose objectifying the human being for one’s own ends, because otherwise they can’t be “intimate, romantic, fun” and “varied, unique, creative” and all the rest of the pornography you were trying to imply.
What an incredible nerve you have.
And that’s quite the tall beak you’re looking down on me and my wife from above and hurling your accusations of having a “negative” marital embrace from, kid.
You’re saying sexuality, to be at its best, first of all needs to be kept as far away from God as possible. Like kind of hiding it, almost? (Tee-hee!)
Your demonstrated understanding is that God’s gift of sexuality is some kind of a toy with no purpose other than amusement. This is what unmasks your personal immaturity. Here’s why, big man:
What would you tell children whose parents are your hateful “NFP supporters” who were never born until their parents started practicing NFP? Would you tell those children to invite God into every part of their lives except for very special place, and NEVER let Him into that part, ever, whatever they do?
Would you tell them the right thing to do is to say one thing and do something completely opposed, as if God will never know?
Would you tell them that because their parents are so thankful for the special gift that made them, they even asked Jesus’ Mother to say thank you with them to God?
Would you tell them their parents are were guilty of avoiding intimacy, romance, fun, variety, uniqueness, and creativity?
Would you say “they skipped all of that to have you.”
Think of Adam’s reaction when he heard God say “Adam, where are you?”
Would you tell them that there are some parts of their own lives where God should never be welcomed?
Man you are COLD. And you’ve made it ABUNDANTLY clear that you are a “progressive” Catholic.
I can’t decide whether your challenge to “prove” moral theology is more ignorant or arrogant.
Here’s another one for the list:
