A noted author, academic and campus speaker, Dr. Morse said revelations of sexual abuse by priests and members of the hierarchy are one more tragic result
of the sexual revolution. The sexual revolution “provides cover for predatory behavior. After all,” says Morse, “the bottom line of the sexual revolution
is that sex is an entitlement. Who really believes that? The rapist: that’s who.”
Dr. Morse says that “Too many men are using their position of authority and respect in the Church to pursue their private sexual purposes. It is no wonder
so many clergy refuse to preach or teach on sexual issues.”
This makes it even more important that faithful Catholics “take up the challenge of educating themselves, living the Church’s teaching, and sharing with
others. We can’t wait for the clergy to put their houses in order.”
Publication of The Sexual State comes at a crucial
time. It exposes and counters the radical sexual “morality” of “an out-of-touch elite class,” imposed on ordinary people by government, including “three
false and calamitous ideologies – contraception, divorce and gender – that have led to widespread and profound unhappiness.”
The best way to fight this is by:
Forming a lifelong plan for cooperating with one person who will co-parent with you
Only having sex with the person you are married to
Staying married unless someone does something really awful
Not attempting a “remarriage”
Being nice to your spouse, so he or she can put up with you
In other words, traditional Christian sexual morality has been right all along.
The Sexual State is essential reading for survivors
of the sexual revolution, Catholic educators, clergy of all denominations, parents, grandparents and everyone who wants to know how to counter the
current climate of indulgence, tragedy and family decline.
