Unnatural means unnatural. Try a dictionary sometimes. As to the modern attitude, has it ever occured to you that there is an underlying reason for the great changes in sexual morality during the past century, especially since the sexual revolution? The modern attitude is indeed different because it assumes that man is basically just a clever ape. That he is being true to his nature only when he is doing what he feels like doing, that the old sexual morality was repressive of his true self.

Has it ever occurred to you that man has been here before in history and done these sorts of thing before? History didn’t begin in your lifetime, as Rush likes to remind his listeners from time to time. “That which has been is what will be, that which is done is what will be done, and there is nothing new under the sun. Is there anything of which it can be said, ‘See, this is new’? It has already been in ancient times before us.” (Ecclesiastes 1:9-10)

We just happen to be living through one of those worse than average times. Sadly, man is being true to his nature when he does these sorts of things ... which is part of what I am trying to point out to you.

I’ll say it again, the problem is not with the new technology of deviancy, the problem lies within fallen and corrupt man himself. But I sense that that is not something you really had in mind to talk about.

We are probably not nearly as far apart as you think. However, I am not nearly as interested in discussing the details of Roman Catholic approved practice as I am in discussing the marriage, family, and human relations under God’s moral law and, how the gospel is in the end the only efficacious solution to the problem of sin and evil in man.
