Ok, I just want to get this right. The Bible,the dictonary, and the lawbooks in some of the states that came up in my search, and even the link that you gave here
One entry found for fornication.
Main Entry: for·ni·ca·tion
: consensual sexual intercourse between two persons not married to each other -- compare ADULTERY
that states fornication is sex between two unmarried people are all wrong? Sorry, I just dont buy it myself.
The apostal Paul is dealing with carnal christians here. Taking the whole scripture in contex, he is telling them that yea you are saved by grace and not under the law,but these thing are wrong and not good for you. this is what the flesh wants, and i will not let the flesh have power over me.
I do not and never have thought sex was a wicked or vile thing. Again God says the marriage bed is undefiled. You are to enjoy your wife or husband in a sexual nature. Thats is why God gave us those fellings and desires.
Look at it from this prospective. If I had sex at 15 or 16 and in God's eyes I was made 1 with that girl.In Gods eyes we would be married. Now If I choose not to married this girl and had became as 1 with someone else that would be adultry in God's eyes. I believe the Bible when it says Every sin that a man does is with out the body:but he that comits fornication sinneth against his own body.

Perhaps this is a method of control by men or the church? Perhaps this is how one deals with those who are not mentally of sexually healthy and would engage in sex outside of the above three stipulations?
So God tells us not to have sex before marriage.
Alternatly, before the native americans were westernized a woman could choose a man to live with her in her home, they would be considered a couple, but if the woman decided that she no longer wanted that man as a partner he must leave the home

i guess my point is this: ITS JUST SEX PEOPLE !!. IT HAS NO PLACE IN RELIGION. RELIGON IS SPIRITUAL GODLINESS. GOD DOESNT ACCEPT HOMOSEXUALS......PERIOD...NO GAY PRIESTS...IT CONTRADICTS EVERY PRINCIPAL THE CHURCH TEACHES....
right. sex should have no place in religon, so being a homosexual shouldn't really matter now should it?

Most religions today still believe that even monogamous sex (and the human body) is a dirty, evil act that should only be utilized to create offspring. This kind of thinking is so unhealthy. The sight of woman's breast creates shock and outrage, but the nightly pictures from the war are fine.
