Infidelity? Broken families? Unwanted pregnancy? Global warming? It’s all the fault of contraception. Don’t believe me? Well, “experts” say so!
“Since the introduction of contraception, everything else has fallen,” said Patrick Fagan, director of the Family Research Council’s Marriage and Religion Research Institute, reported CNS.
Addressing the annual conference of the Frederick Douglass Foundation in Washington, D.C. last week, Fagan cited “alienation of men from women, the breakdown of marriage,” and “sex outside of marriage” as a few of the tragic results of contraception use. The foundation is a black, faith-based organization.
“Universally, in all the history of Christianity, contraception was always seen as a grave sin against God,” he said, “a sin by which one lost divine life and the soul.”
Planned Parenthood’s birth-control campaign, said Fagan, was the beginning of the societal scourge.
So, what happened to evangelicals looking for common ground on stopping abortion again? Did they miss the memo that most evangelicals support birth control?
