Current Sexual Teachings of Religious Groups (not necessarily completely accurate)

Yeah, being Catholic is, like, SO boring. But it looks like Buddhists are down with whatever.

If you think teen sex is morally unacceptable in MOST cases, when is it okay?

  1. Alicia says:

    When the leader of your cult tells you to marry your 45 year old cousin.

  2. Rich says:

    Yeah.

    At least the thing had the honesty to admit it was incomplete at best.

    I found it totally useless and rather lame, and angry because I only know this because I’m in a position where it’s important for me to know and keep up on this kinda stuff. I shudder to think of the conclusions the casual, uninformed reader would draw.

  3. Rich says:

    Oh, and if Alicia is wrong, I’d say some nasty thing dripping with sarcasm , but the wittiest I could come up with is “when you and your s.o. make up your fully-developed-yet-still-adolescent minds that you MUST truly be in love and that there couldn’t POSSIBLY be anything better in store for you in the future, and even though true love waits forever, good sex must happen NOW!”

    But it’s not as funny on my screen as it is in my head.

    My Thursday is playing out like a Monday, and I’m not okay with this.

    Dude. Ask your barista for decaf.

    I would wager that the typical reader picking this up is unlikely to believe that Everything On The Internet Is True. But if this turns up in a textbook somewhere, we’re all screwed.

    Not just the fully-developed-etc. adolescent and the young lady ordered to marry her 45-year-old cousin.

  5. 8junebugs says:

    Also, for the record, I take issue with your Monday-esque tone about fully-developed adolescents being, say, less able to experience or discern true love, which is not always synonymous with “Something Better” or even “The Best Thing That Ever Happened To You.” Even at the tender age of not-married-and-possibly-ineligible-to-vote, that’s totally possible and extremely powerful, with or without The Good Sex.

    With all due respect, natch. 🙂
