The sad thing about sex is most people think just because you might be old enough it is ok but the problem is according to God's word ANY sex out of a legitament marriage is SIN and other marriage requirments can make it a SIN also,most people don't seem to have a clue about God's Word or don't care.

Not everybody agrees on what God's word is. And peoples' interpretation of God's word has changed over time. We live in a very different age from when the bible was first canonized. Sexuality is a complex force and one that we can't expect to remain static. So education and mature discussion is key. Adhering to notion of God's word only makes for a stubborn and immature conversation.

Hebrews 13:8  Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.
Matthew 5:18  For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.
Revelation 22:19  And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

I'm a Catholic and marriage is a sacrament (a gift from God). The Sacrament of Holy Matrimony is a gift, an institution, and a sign of Christ's love for His people. Sex within marriage is a consecration - it makes Holy something that is considered a mere biological function by most. It mirrors Christ's self-giving. The fruits of Christ's love are Redemption, Caritas (Love derived from God), and Grace. The fruits of sex within the institution of marriage are children. Yes, children can obviously be derived otherwise. But done within the institutiojn of marriage, children bring forth Christ's graces.

Christ said
Matthew 5:31  It hath been said, Whosoever shall put away his wife, let him give her a writing of divorcement:
32  But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery.

Have you heard about the holiday gift some American girls could be getting? Emergency contraception!

During Thanksgiving week the American Academy of Pediatrics announced their recommendation that "morning- after" prescriptions be issued to adolescent girls in advance of need, as a matter of routine.

"There's no good reason" to disagree with the recommendation, the San Francisco Chronicle asserts. But there are actually plenty of them.

Besides being deeply insulting to the dignity of adolescents, this approach exposes the reality that when we talk about sex, we all too often put good health and sense aside. "Women's health" routinely assumes promiscuity, whatever the age, despite...
