It’s often said that Catholics are anti-sex. I’m always a little amused by that as Catholics are also blamed for having too many children. We do oppose the cheapening of sex.
Actor Liam Neeson, in a story that appeared in Irish Central seems to diagnose the problem quite well:
Action star Liam Neeson has said he regrets the loss of the sanctity of sex in modern day culture and continuously struggles with the the sexualized nature of society.
The ‘Taken’ star said he blames the cheapening of sex for ruining loving relationships.
Speaking to the Catholic Herald, Neeson, who has two teenage sons, Micheal, 17, and Daniel, 16, explained: “I’d hate to be a kid now, because we’re all inundated with so much information about sexuality, coming at us from everywhere – the media, the advertising billboards, just everywhere – and it must be so confusing for them.”
“There’s a problem that, if you become over-familiar with something, it moves from the sacred to almost the profane,” he said.

“The act is very, very special. It’s full of mystery and wonder, and I’d hate us all to get to the stage where we just treat it lightly, because it deserves more than that.”
Now, if we could just get people to see that Catholicism is the antidote.
