“We refuse to tell teenagers not to have sex, because the only thing our culture cherishes more than…”

“We refuse to tell teenagers not to have sex, because the only thing our culture cherishes more than sexual license is avoiding the appearance of hypocrisy. And we won’t tell teenagers that sex belongs in marriage because we’ve emptied marriage of its significance to the point that it’s a hollow shell, less than a contract. (And besides, that’s totally judgmental, which is almost as bad as hypocrisy.) And so, when the dire social consequences of epidemic teen pregnancy can no longer be ignored, having absolved ourselves of any responsibility for the mess, we lay the blame in the one place it most obviously doesn’t belong. By portraying them as little bundles of life-sucking terror, we blame the babies.”

from “Blame the Babies” by Stephen White (via badwolfcomplex)

So true, but don’t let it hold you down. There are many things in this world that need to change, and we need to look them in the face. But with God’s help, we can do something about them!
