Do according ONLY to natural law. If it is against natural law, it is a liar. This is my core philosophy.
That is why I am totally for the Church teachings on sexuality. They follow what NATURE was designed. After all, the Church’s teaching and the science of nature DO come from the same source…
Now, lustful thoughts. They would appear to be totally in line with natural law. I am NOT talking about pornography, masturbation, as that is all pointless, unhealthy, and unnatural. I mean healthy, heterosexual, lustful THOUGHTS. These thoughts, which chastity heroes I look up to like Jason Evert condemn as objectifying women, are what allowed humanity to survive, right? If everybody was modest, and nobody ever lusted for somebody that they weren’t married to, then nobody would ever be married and nobody would be born, right?
So could somebody explain to me how sexual desires are bad when you aren’t married? When in fact those thoughts CAUSE marriage? I am just so SICK(not trying to be insulting) of people telling me “Don’t lust for women, they are princesses of God, and so NEVER lust after them”. That doesn’t make sense to me in light of natural law.
Anyways, I realize that the SUPERNATURAL law is higher than natural law, but I don’t know of anywhere else where Church teaching on sex contradicts nature, so this would be a first.
Thanks for the explanations!
