The Hypocrisy of being Pro-contraception AND Pro-Marriage

An excellent article by Patrick Danielson in the New Oxford Review called "Homosexuality, Contraception & the Defense of Marriage." Danielson shows that "The contraceptive ethos assumes that pleasure for its own sake justifies sexual experience, and this assumption effectively sunders the morally and socially indispensable twofold nature of human sexuality." Also "The case against homosexual marriage thus becomes an argument for the moral superiority of one form of pleasure usurping another: Homosexual sex is inferior, for example, because it does not involve the conjoining of generative organs."

Good article, give it a read.
