The Jesusphile's Anti-Sex Page

It has been said, rightly I believe, that Christianity has created the sexual environment it claims to find so distasteful.

"Personally, I vote that there be fines and arrests for
consenting adults if they are not married--- heterosexual
or otherwise."
-- Mark Fox, Fundamentalist Christian

From Sexual Abuse in Christian Homes and Churches, by Carolyn Holderread Heggen, Herald Press, Scotdale, PA, 1993 p. 73:

"A disturbing fact continues to surface in sex abuse research. The first best predictor of abuse is alcohol or drug addiction in the father. But the second best predictor is conservative religiosity, accompanied by parental belief in traditional male-female roles. This means that if you want to know which children are most likely to be sexually abused by their father, the second most significant clue is whether or not the parents belong to a conservative religious group with traditional role beliefs and rigid sexual attitudes. (Brown and Bohn, 1989; Finkelhor, 1986; Fortune, 1983; Goldstein et al, 1973; Van Leeuwen, 1990). (emphasis in original)
