Quote for the Day

"I cannot imagine any development in human history, after the Fall, that has had a greater impact on human beings than the pill. It became almost an assured form of contraception, something humans had never encountered before in history. Prior to it, every time a couple had sex, there was a good chance of pregnancy. Once that is removed, the entire horizon of the sexual act changes. I think there could be no question that the pill gave incredible license to everything from adultery and affairs to premarital sex and within marriage to a separation of the sex act and procreation … I detect a huge shift. Students on our campus are intensely concerned. Not a week goes by that I do not get contacted by pastors about the [contraception] issue. There are active debates going on. It’s one of the things that may serve to divide evangelicalism," – Albert Mohler, president of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. Access to contraception of all kinds is the next target of the Christianist right.
