What the Culture War Is Really About
What is "the culture war" being fought over? While politics (taxes, government size, censorship, gun control, Constitutional debates) are not unimportant, author and podcaster Patrick Coffin says the deeper war is really over the meaning and purpose of sex. On one hand, some say sex has no inherent meaning (or it has any meaning you want to give it). On the other side, there is the view that sex has objective meaning, which can be known by reason and by what God reveals. In this talk, "Contraception vs the Culture of Life," author and co-founder of the Coffin Nation culture-building community uncovers the biblical and philosophical sources for the Catholic sexual ethic—and its enormous benefits for married couples. As the former dissenter will explain, it turns out not to be a "Catholic thing," but a human thing.
