From Christ & Pop Culture

"However, whether an act feels satisfying or feels vexing is ultimately immaterial to whether the act itself is moral or immoral. That premarital sex has damaged some marriages and psyches is no more proof of its immorality than the fact that it has failed to damage others is proof of its acceptability. Worse, when we tell teens that the ultimate purpose of chaste behavior is to make sex and marriage satisfying, we invite them to judge every act in pragmatically hedonistic terms."

From I Have to Sit Down

"Meh. Let’s just relax. Most people have gone through something painful or difficult, either in the past or in the present, and they don’t feel the need to carry a sign announcing it to everyone.
