Smoking and 'Safe Sex' - The Great Hypocrisy

Last edited 4th May 2011

The Australian Government is cracking down hard on tobacco industries but what is most frustrating is the hypocritical approach given to other public health issues. For example the deceptive and fallacious ‘safe sex’ campaign that is sold to young people via various well designed and sexy governmental websites and videos.

Last edited 2nd May 2011

What is the experience of falling in love? What is the meaning of the movements of the heart? What do my feelings mean? How does a relationship grow? How can I discern the truth of a relationship?

The following summary, of the first part of the book, was written by Fr Richard Aladics, a Spiritual Director at the Seminary of the Good Shepherd, Homebush, Sydney.

Last edited 15th April 2011

One of the critical moral issues in our sex-saturated culture is premarital sex and cohabitation. Yet, despite the clarity of the Church's teachings on sexuality, this issue is often overlooked as 'too hard' for educators to deal with when forming young Catholics. Fortunately, the Archbishop Michael J. Sheehan of Santa Fe has recently issued a pastoral letter emphasising the importance of the Church teachings on premarital sex and cohabitation. Visit this article to read some excerpts from the letter.

Couple, De-couple, Repeat

Last edited 12th April 2011

It's complicated. More than a Facebook relationship status, “it’s complicated” sums up the ambiguity, fluidity, and contradictions experienced by “emerging adults” in the Western world, at least when it comes to sex and relationships. Accoding to a recent study, 84 per cent of unmarried emerging adults (ages 18-23) in America have had sex. But what does it mean? In their outstanding new book, Premarital Sex in America: How Young Americans Meet, Mate, and Think about Marrying, Mark Regnerus and Jeremy Uecker provide some answers, showing that premarital sex has almost nothing to do with marriage - at least, not a happy one.

Contraceptive Contradictions

Last edited 11th April 2011

The Catholic Church remains almost a lone voice in our age defending the view that contraceptive sexual activity in marriage is wrong. Many young Catholic couples either are not aware of this teaching, or simply choose to ignore it. In this article, Fr. Tadeusz Pacholczyk looks at the reasons behind the Church's position on contraception in light of both theology and human sexuality.

Can One Be Catholic and Support Same-Sex Marriage?

Last edited 29th March 2011

For the State to equate homosexual unions and marriage "would objectively mean that the connection of sexuality to procreation and the raising of children is a fact of no interest to the state since it has no relevance to the common good." But what is more relevant to the common good than the very survival of civilization?
