Still wrong. I don't care how people live their lives. What I do care about is my children being enticed with sexual immorality because....
Your definition of what is "immoral" is completely out of whack and that is the problem. So too, no one is forcing you to take your children outside. If you choose to believe that sex is "evil" or that human physiology has some "satanic", "spiritual", "dark" mumbo jumbo attached to it (which is just nonsense anyways) then go live with the Amish and stop complaining.
So is AIDS, STDs, unwanted pregnancies, orphaned children, and abortion. Put two and two together. Sexual immorality is harmful. If you promote sex you're going to reap these things. It's a simple case of cause and effect.
This is just fear mongering (which is really all your religion spreads). Who ever said anything about "promoting sex"? Now you are just being dishonest (lying for Jesus) and misrepresenting my position. We live in a free society. Apparently you don't like that very much (because you are so damn hung up on sexuality, and your disgust of it). Eating hamburgers can cause heart decease, cancer, childhood obesity, and lots more. Driving cars causes carbon monoxide in the air (which is cancerous), and cars are dangerous. People use them as weapons all the time. Are you looking to ban those now too? You're just a bundle of contradictions. The argument you are making is also logically fallacious b/c you're trying to take exceptional cases and apply them to the whole.
Now, STDs (including AIDS) can effect married people too. I guess sex, as a whole, is just immoral then (according to your twisted logic) right?! Unwanted pregnancies aren't directly "harming" anyone either (and married people have them too!). They may be an inconvenience but most people deal with it and either have the child and do their best or allow for adoption. Again, your attempt here fails because it applies to married couples as well. Regarding abortion, married couples have them too! So you get no help there dude. So too, you will have a lot of work ahead of you to show 1) that 100 or so cells is a "person" or "soul", and 2) how a woman's choices with her body are necessarily doing harm to her or other people around her in this case.
In and of itself, sex does no unnecessary harm to anyone.
No it does not. Sexual immorality does.
Oh, like "hamburger immorality"? There is nothing "immoral" about consenting adults having sex. It's too bad your religion has caused you to think this way because there is nothing inherently harmful there to point to. The second you point to instances where people have harmed one another, or harmed others, you are pointing to exceptional cases and not the whole.
We plaster hamburgers all over billboards too. Are you against those?
You are against hamburgers or billboards? Are you a vegetarian? How about water? Are you against water? People have used it to drown other people in it! Should we have mandatory "H2o safety buddies"? If it's the billboard you're against, then are you against people being able to do with their property what they wish? You act as if a billboard is forcing you to buy. Are you against all advertisements? If so, please demonstrate how advertisements are harmful in general. We will need direct studies, not just hearsay or correlations.
No, it's about what is beneficial and what is detrimental. Sexual immorality is detrimental to society. Biblical morality is not just pulled out of thin air.
I'd like to see you prove the case that people having sex, in and of itself,
is "detrimental" or harmful to others. Again, do you want to ban the use of motor vehicles? Because those can be "detrimental" as well. How about banning kitchen knives? They cut people a lot! You are attempting another logical fallacy (called the converse accident fallacy
) - trying to take exceptional cases and apply them to the whole. That is irrational.
Your definition will suffice. Apparatantly it's our definition of "unnecessary harm and the promotion of well being" that's different.
Instead of just stating that we have a disagreement why not actually state where the disagreement is? Please demonstrate how consenting adults (who are not married) having sex is somehow unnecessarily harmful to others.
