    The rapid advances in science and medicine since 1950, and especially the advances in computer technology since 1980, have revolutionized the way society functions.

    The Natural Failure of Planning Are modern forms of contraception naturally and morally wrong? Pope Paul VI and his Humanae Vitae declare that technological methods of birth control are immoral and should not be practiced by Catholics.

  • The Truth About Our Sexuality
    589 words
    The Truth about Our Sexuality The Catholic faith does not dislike sex. Our modern day society of death would probably disagree. The fact is, however, that our sex-crazed society simply does not understand our Church s view of sexuality and celibacy; it does not understand the truth. Our society sees sexuality as a way of gaining personal pleasure, but the truth about sex is that it is the giving of ourselves to our spouse in the marital relationship. The wrong in our society is very obvious. Por...
