For millennia, we have been *instilled* with the 'religious' idea of what sex is about. If we recall, as far as the Catholic church is concerned (where ALL Westernised religion originated from), sex exists for one reason only - which is, to bear children and that sex, for any other reason was an out and out 'sin'. I say to you now that, had it not been for the church and it's interference with our sex lives then, I promise you, the three P's - 'Pornography' - 'Paedophilia' - and 'Prostitution' wouldn't exist. What the church (any church incidentally) do by threatening us all with eternal damnation through our supposed 'illicit' sexual activity is akin to placing your thumb over the top of a fiercely spouting tap and expecting to control the spray! It was ridiculous then and it still is.
As if Catholicism - and related 'closed-minded' religions, didn't do enough damage on their own, through and because of them, so-called 'new age' religions have sprouted or that many old ones have been reinvented. (I say 'reinvented' because present day 'ideas' and misinterpretations of what 'old religions' actually were have been adapted to fall in with common, everyday, 'ideas' and 'beliefs' of what sex means today and not then. For example, the sole heart of the Wiccan 'way' (not 'religion') for Britain in it's day was solely based on sex AND Nature and not just Nature alone. Sex was *holy* back then and not the 'filthy thing' it is today, as it remains, even in so-called 'new' religions. To the Wiccans of that day, both sex and Nature were one and the same thing and that it was not unusual at all to find couples - together - making love under a tree as you rode past on a sunny afternoon. I mean it! It was considered to be *nothing* then for sex was an act of *celebration* and NOT an *aberration* that it is with us today. With our 'public indecency laws' and 'morals' (invented by someone ELSE and not you or I - often so criminal in themselves - this is an inconceivable thought today isn't it?! ). And so, instead of becoming a new hope for mankind in that, along with our returning to our original path before we were overcome with Rome's might; instead of being *different* and not so guilt-ridden themselves, they too have followed suit to compound this same shame and guilt that we already have! So, we have got to ask ourselves, 'what's the point in that!?' Why pretend that we don't 'believe' in this or that established 'religion' and yet, practice the same ideology under a different name? Pointless.
