Politics and Whatnot

Just another liberal political blog

The Catholic Church is against pulling out. No joke.

One of the things that I’ve found surprising in this whole birth control-Catholic Church debate thing is learning just how ridiculously backward the Catholic Church’s views on birth control are.  I mean, before this whole thing happened, I just thought they opposed abortion.  As it turns out, they’re also against birth control – not just pills, ALL BIRTH CONTROL. So they’re against condoms too, meaning that protection from disease is limited to abstinence and limiting your choices to virgins.

And according to this fascinating Catholic sex FAQ section, it is a sin to even pull out.  Apparently, even this famously unreliable attempt to avoid pregnancy is considered “birth control” by the church, and is forbidden.  No word yet on how the church feels about thinking “don’t get pregnant” over and over again while having sex.

    It’s not backwards…the Church’s view is that every life is a blessing!
