Happy 40th!

Forty years ago, the pope (not the current one, of course) declared that sex should be used for procreative purposes ONLY with his Humanae Vitae encyclical, banning the use of the pill for Catholics.

Oddly, in a move that was supposed to increase humanity, the percentage of religious folks turning away from Catholicism since that announcement has increased instead...

May I suggest a Catholic worth listening to on the subject?

The Religion Report.

He's a smart man who is truly curious about how (and what) people believe, which makes for some great interviewing. Even if he is Australian.
