A columnist for the Indiana Daily Student declares that her "generation is OK with sex." This is an absurd statement. The fact of the matter is that there has never been a generation that was not OK with sex. If there was, the human race would have died out and no one would be here to debate the role of sexuality. The question is not whether we should be OK with sex, but what role it should play in our lives and the proper context for it.
The very first commandment that God gave to man, recorded in Genesis 1:28, is to have sex. What we have wrestled with since creation is how we deal with sex, and in what context sex should take place.
So the issue with the porn star student at Duke University is not whether we are OK with sex, but whether we are OK with sex in public. Specifically, should we be OK with what should be a private, personal and intimate matter being paraded in the public square though the Internet.
The problem here is not with sex, but that we have degraded and devalued it by saturating our culture with images of sex everywhere and all the time. The reason we should feel shame is not because people are having sex - again, it was created by God - but that we have taken what should happen in private and made a public spectacle out of it. The problem is that we have taken a gift that God has given to us and warped it to the point that it is unrecognizable.

Why must "righteous" people always be "afraid" and "fearing" God? It's clear from scripture, if we accept the fairy tales as true, that you worship the worst sadistic, mass-murdering terrorist there ever was. That's a symptom of insanity, all by itself.
