Are Christians Really Obsessed with Sex?

by Charles Cherry

Joe Carter has an interesting post today about the decline and fall of Western Civilization and the coming “Pink Police State.” He thinks that his generation could be one of the last to really be interested in stopping the transformation of Western civilization (founded upon traditional Christian morality) to a culture completely dominated by “liberaltarianism” and the “Pink Police State.”

One paragraph I found particularly interesting:

Indeed, I know some young, smart Christians—believers who went to the best evangelical colleges and are thoroughly versed in the Great Works of the faith and Western civilization—who fully understand what is at stake and yet they are willing to give it all up because they fear being called bigots by their peers. The fault for this belongs with the Boomers and us Gen-Xers. We have a raised, as C.S. Lewis might say, a generation of men and women without chests. We should have trained them to have the courage of martyrs. Instead, they tremble at the thought that someone might call them a homophobe.

You’ll need to read his post in full, as well as the linked essay in The Atlantic by James Poulos, to get the real gist of what they are trying to say.

Christians, Sex, and the Pink Police State.
