"Carried to its logical conclusion, the [Lambeth] committee's report, if carried into effect, would sound the death knell of marriage as a holy institution by establishing degrading practices which would encourage indiscriminate immorality. The suggestion that the use of legalized contraception would be 'careful and restrained' is preposterous. It is the misfortune of the churches that they are too often misued by visionaries for the promotion of 'reforms' in fields foreign to religion. The departures from Christian teachings are astounding in many cases, leaving the beholder aghast at the unwillingness of some churches to teach 'Christ and Him crucified'. If the churches are to become organizations for political and scientific propaganda, they should be honest and reject the Bible, scoff at Christ as an obsolete and unscientific teacher, and strike boldly as champions of politics and science as modern substitutes for the old-time religion."

It's amazing how far the Washington Post has fallen.

The utilitarianism that underlies the birth control movement ignores/denies human nature. If there is any Christian dogma that is empirically verified, it is the teaching on original sin. I am reminded of the little kid character that Red Skelton used to play. What were the lines that the kid used do say? “ “If I dood it, I get a whipping. I’ll dood it!!!” The calculus of pain/pleasure do not work. Because we get pleasure from pain. If we do get away with it, we keep on doing it until we get caught.
