It’s time to talk sacrifices. No, not human. Not virgin.
Your “intimate treasures.”
No, this isn’t dirty talk, this is, as always, about babies.

Baklinski, a “Sacred Theology” scholar, goes a little off subject in a recent LifesiteNews article that is meant to explain why it is imperative that homosexuals not be allowed to get married and why it threatens “traditional” marriage. Unsurprisingly, the argument revolves around marriage for procreation, etc., but sidelines for a bit into why contraception is just as harmful to marriage as the gays.
The destroyers of the family began by splitting husbands apart from wives. They did this by introducing contraception into the sexual act under the guise of ‘sexual freedom’. With contraception, spouses took each other’s intimate treasure of fertility and sacrificed it on the altar of sexual freedom so as to increase their sexual availability with ‘no consequences.’
But in disregarding the ‘whole person’ by excluding fertility, contracepting husbands and wives began to relate to one another merely as stimulating occasions for orgasm.
Oh no! The babies are being sacrificed on the altar! Won’t someone save them?
It’s an interesting line of euphemisms that Baklinski offers. Fertility is a treasure, yet the actual offspring is a “consequence” of sex. It’s almost like there is mindset where creating life is sacred and protected, but the actual life child itself is a punishment that a couple must endure for the sake of having sex.
I’m sorry. I mean for having “stimulating occasions for orgasms.”
The juxtaposition from treasure to consequence is very reminiscent of the same political mentality that cuts off access to abortion, emotionally manipulates those who are pregnant into giving birth, then refuses to provide support for the family once the child is born.
If you are planning to stimulate a few occasions with your partner, and intend to sacrifice your treasure, you’d better be sure you have some contraception on hand to be safe. Because they are definitely coming for your birth control.
