Skip to comments.Telling Lies with Our Bodies: What the Pope Thinks About Sex
Posted on 10/27/2013 12:32:19 PM PDT by RCB-Catholic
In a society characterized by a sexual revolution, it should not be surprising that the Catholic Church has something to say. The Bible itself lays the groundwork for how we are to live our sexuality. God created us male and female and ordered us to be fruitful and multiply. But, until recently, what it means to be a man or a woman has not been well explored in theology. No pope has spoken on sexuality with such frequency, bluntness, and originality as John Paul II.
From 1979 to 1984, the Holy Father directed his Wednesday discourses to the theme of human sexuality. Since then he has dedicated innumerable public talks and writings to this topic. His teaching on sex has promoted a quiet revolution, which has slowly begun to make an impact. Although the Holy Father teaches no "new" doctrines on sex, passing on to us "what was from the beginning" (1 John 1:1), his explanations are innovative. The pope brings us face to face with God's plan for our sexuality as revealed in the Bible and proclaimed by the Church.
One of the longest-lasting contributions of John Paul II's pontificate will probably be a vision of human sexuality resting on his theology of the body.

Sorry, but I’m not going to take sex advice from a 76 year-old man that’s never had an orgasm.
The pope? The Bible brings us face-to-face with God's plan for our sexuality as revealed in the Bible and occasionally taught correctly in churches that follow the Bible. Quit tooting your own horn.
Freep-mail me to get on or off my pro-life and Catholic List:
Please ping me to note-worthy Pro-Life or Catholic threads, or other threads of general interest.
Um, aw skip it. Watch the movie "The Crime of Father Amaro. VERY accurate as to what goes on in the priesthood.
How about the guy who created sex?
Whoever told you that its a "VERY accurate" source was fibbing.
Sorry to break it to you.
And they tell us there's no anti-Catholic bigotry on FR. LOL ...
I guess you’re not going to take medical advice from a 76 year old cardiologist who never had a heart attack?
I'm laughing. Every since thread, every single post on Free Republic is for people to toot their own hon. That's what an "internet forum" is all about.
I don’t think that’s the issue. This is about morality and God’s wish for our happiness, not about sexual technique. If you’re interested in strictly physical functions, there are likely many secular sources that you might consult.
A lot of priests were human before they became priests, if you know what I mean. Most of them have a very good idea of what they’re renouncing. Anyway, the Theology of the Body is not about technique but about pub relationship with God.
Okay, I'll do just that. I'll too my own hon.
Sorry, but Im not going to take sex advice from a 76 year-old man thats never had an orgasm.
I would doubt that but how do you know???
How do I know what?

If every one would just read the Bible and throw away every thing that some one calls theology I most likely would not find any need for this comment.
Nature itself taught me that I am a man, when I saw that women were much different than me I knew they were not men and was really pleased.
