John, I don’t know the man, I know only what I’ve read this morning. But the fact is one does not have to be an opponent of contraception to think that we have a contraceptive mentality in our culture that is in fact demeaning. Where we give kids condoms instead of teaching them why waiting would be of some value — for a lot more reasons than not getting pregnant. And it goes, of course, a heck of a lot deeper than condoms. We need a little more sanity when it comes to sex. (Here and abroad — think the emphasis on fidelity in the only African nations that are seeing AIDs cases dropping.) And I don’t think that’s crazy. And I don’t think nominating that dude sounds crazy either.
But we probably need to agree to disagree on this.
