Our Most Important Freedom

From Red Cardigan:

The one cultural value our current society elevates above all others is the notion that sex without consequences is the most important freedom we have, and if children or innocent spouses or unborn babies or anyone else has to suffer for this freedom to be paramount, then so be it.

This principle is not (yet) written into the Constitution, but for all practical purposes it might as well be. Most Americans certainly consider their pelvic freedom at least as important as the liberties protected by the Bill of Rights.

It is beyond government's ability to guarantee that sex will have no consequences because those consequences are natural. They are programmed into us - biologically, psychologically, and spiritually. They cannot be eliminated by law. Yet people keep trying.
