Does the Catholic Church hate sex?

Today’s forum was delivered by Mr Bernard Toutounji, whose charm and learning are juxtaposed by youth. The director of the Life, Marriage and Family Centre of the Catholic Archdiocese of Sydney, Mr Toutounji took the unexpected approach of walking the audience through some of the basics of philosophy and Christian theology. Special attention was paid to the historical heresies which have regained popularity in modern thought. Having brought the audience up to speed, Bernard then compared these positions to the teachings of the Catholic Church, and how they compete with Catholic philosophy in their interpretation of human sexuality. The seminar was closed by addressing the common objections levelled against the Church (such as the practice of celibacy amongst clerics and religious, the prohibition of contraception and in-vitro fertilisation, and the Church’s position on homosexuality).

Join us at Sydney University next week for “What Science Knows: is there any truth in it?” with the excellent Professor James Franklin.
