Writing in the Sunday bulletin, my priest recently decried the secularization of society, and specifically the relegation of sex to a mere biological function. “The conjugal act is sacred in that it has the potential to bring an immortal soul into existence,” he wrote. Those words struck me as so clear and concise and profound. It was something I already knew, but had never thought of precisely in those terms. How is it that as a culture we’ve come to treat sex so lightly, to remove it so far from the realm of the sacred?

The answers are complex, but to a large degree can be traced back to one man: Alfred Kinsey. I’ve written previously about the work of Dr. Judith Reisman in exposing the lies Kinsey spread in his two seminal books, Sexual Behavior in the Human Male and Sexual Behavior in the Human Female. Based on false data, Kinsey convinced Americans that they weren’t who they thought they were, writes Reisman. With the help of a fawning media to spread the word, Kinsey undermined the Judeo-Christian foundations of marriage and family which had been firmly in place during those post-World War II years. Phony statistics “proved” that premarital sex and adultery were commonplace. If fidelity and chastity weren’t really being practiced by others, why cling to what must be old-fashioned and outmoded ideas? A Pandora’s box was opened, and the seeds of the sexual revolution were sown.

Undoubtedly many of us can attest either through personal experience or that of friends and family to the damage done to the baby boomers who bought into that revolution. “Free love” wasn’t about love, it was about sex. It was about sex without commitment or consequences or even caring. Sex sacred? That idea got lost in the purple haze of a self-absorbed generation.
