Vatican: Condoms For HIV Prevention A Good Idea For Everyone<quoted text>
Example: Up until the 1930's, all of Christendom was unanimous. Contraception was wrong. Gradually, one Protestant sect after another has come to embrace Contraception and now, the Catholic Church stands alone in forbidding the use of it.
The reason: We are not the authors of life, God is. We have no business using sex for recreational purposes and this gift of sex should only be used within the covenant of the sacrament of Marriage, where the husband and wife are OPEN to the possibility that there sexual encounter will bring forth life. Sex is the method that God uses to bring life into this world.
The Pope at the time (or shortly after) prophesied that contraception would open the door to promiscuity and recreational sex. Boy was he right.
Protestants on the other hand, saw no reason to forbid contraceptions. Perhaps because there is no Biblical verse that condemns it.
