Are you a religious or spiritual person? Meaning do you practice any or believe in any of the world's major faiths, or have one that's in the minority that you follow?

I am religious, I am Catholic.

I don't get what their problem with birth control is. I mean, there is nothing in the Bible that says it's wrong to prevent pregnancy, or that everyone should have a lot of children........ huh.gif

Actually, it does. Sex has 2 purposes. One of them is to be open to the chance of new life. Using birth control defeats that purpose....I learned that in Religion class happy.gif

What did they say was the other reason for sex? *have never been educated in Catholic schools* Me personally, I think sex is an expression of love. I wouldn't want it for any other reason. I do want to have kids someday but with someone I love, or through artificial insemination if I can't find that.

Being open to new life is all good and fine, but what if a person can't afford to take care of that new life? Or just doesn't like children or think they could be a good parent? The Church would say they shouldn't be married then, but that seesm kinda unfair. We aren't all cut from the same cloth. Some people just aren't cut out or even can't afford to be parents.

Unfortunately the church doesn't seem to see it that way. They almost seem to punish people who make mistakes with sex. You are right, quite a few people have no business having children. Iin our society that clings to the Kodak moment as if it was a religion, it's unthinkable that someone doesn't want or shouldn't *gasp* have children. Nobody wants to look at the big picture because they are afraid of what they will see.

I don't see sex as just for procreation it is an expression of love. Wether you want kids or not, this is not the 15th century we don't need to populate the earth anymore. We're there and then some.
