Ancient text tended to encourage men to have as many offspring as
possible. It was important to protect the family and the tribe by increasing their population This would make sense, since in those days as a child’s chance of reaching adulthood would be slim at best: they had no defense against disease and children would be a tempting treat to predators, some of whom were more powerful than we. Not much said about women back then but easy to see they were essentially seen as breeders. Obviously abortion and nonproductive sexual activity (gays) would be shunned..
But fast forward to this century and we find that our survival is now threatened by over 7 Billion of us critters crowded onto this small planet, a planet whose land mass is shrinking—mainly because of the needs of our ever expanding human population.
So why do we still have people so opposed to abortion and who detest gay activity Why??
Because we have far too many who are still taught that they must conform to these ancient standards-or else.. Republicans are treating women as if they were breeders by passing draconian laws . and threatening transsexuals– Read on:
An Attorney in America states that she’d take a gun to restrooms so she can shoot trans sexual people. One transsexual has already been shot in a mall for this supposedly “crime”. Eleven states intend to sue their President for legalizing transsexual rights. Meanwhile Muslims continue to behead anyone who is found guilty of being transsexual.
How did physical intimacy get such a bad name.? Sex is simply a genetic drive, morality does not apply Yes ethics, as always, applies. But what is ethical about a priest using children for personal pleasure? What is ethical about teachers and coaches molesting children? What is ethical about a man masturbating in a women’s body against her will?
But note—all this moral outrage is NOT directed against these crimes, hell no, this outrage is directed at people for just being who they are.
