Is it really anyone’s business??
Over the time of this blog, I’ve been fighting with marriagecoach (John) about whether it’s ok to have anal and oral sex.
My position has been that it’s not, because marital sex is meant to be unitive and procreative, and anything that interrupts those God-given purposes is not to be used. John’s position is that it livens up marriage by making it more exciting, etc.
But some events this week have gotten me to thinking. NO, not to change my mind. But here it is: Is it anyone’s business but yours what you do behind closed doors???
The answer is, as long as it’s legal, it’s between you and your maker. When and how does that change? When you make it public. When you tell someone you’re a proponent of it. Keep it to yourself, folks, I don’t want to know about it. I have my beliefs and I know what my faith tells me. You’re free to disagree, but if you want to shout it out, I’ll have to give argument for the truth. I’m not going to hell for anyone, and if I know or see a wrong, I’m going to get involved to stop it.
A case in point in the public eye this week, witness Anthony Weiner, Democrat Congressman from New York. Made his junk public. Got caught. If Mr. Weiner wanted to go show his junk to some girl in private, and is discreet and doesn’t get caught? It’s between him and God. Now, the whole world knows what a weiner Weiner is.
Folks, keep private stuff to yourself. John kept asking me to go ask a priest if it was ok to have anal sex. I kept saying I don’t need to go ask, because I’m not into that and neither is my wife. But when you ask what the Catholic Church says about something, and you get the answer, that is the answer. Truth is black and white. What’s not so black and white is whether we follow or obey the truth.
I personally do not care what people do in private. It’s none of my business. But when they do what ought to be done in private in the public arena, then it is time to speak out.
