PROPHECIES OF HUMANAE VITAE: RATHER THAN LIBERATION, WOMEN BECOME SLAVES TO SEX AND MADE OBJECTS OF LUST AND PLEASURE, IN OTHER WORDS, IT KEEPS THEM BAREFOOT, BUT NOT PREGNANT; HUMANAE VITAE IS THE KEY TO TRUE WOMEN'S LIBERATION AND DIGNITY, NOT TO MENTION MEN'S AUTHENTIC LIBERATION
Prophecies of Humanae Vitae
By Fr. Paul Marx, OSB
On July 25, 1968, Pope Paul VI’s Humanae Vitae re-affirmed the Catholic teaching on life, love and human sexuality. In that document, he listed the consequences of life lived outside Catholic teaching.
He predicted that:
1. Contraception would lead to conjugal (marital) infidelity. [adultery and fornication]
2. Contraceptive practice would lead to a “general lowering of morality.”
3. Contraception would lead men to cease respecting woman in their totality and would cause them to treat women as “mere instruments [de-humanized into sex objects only] of selfish enjoyment” rather than as cherished partners.
4. And finally, widespread acceptance of contraception by couples would lead to a massive imposition of contraception by unscrupulous governments.
In other words, Pope Paul VI predicted that contraception would evolve from “a lifestyle choice” into a weapon of mass destruction. How dreadfully his prophecy has been vindicated by population control and coercive sterilization programs, fertility reduction quotas and the promotion of abortion literally everywhere in the world.
Contraception’s destruction of the integrity of the marital act—as unitive and procreative—has dire consequences for society and for our souls. Contraception, in other words, is a rejection of God’s view of reality. It is a wedge driven into the most intimate sphere of communion known to man outside of the Holy Sacrament of the Mass. It is a degrading poison that withers life and love both in marriage and in society.
By breaking the natural and divinely ordained connection between sex and procreation, women and men—but especially men—would focus on the hedonistic possibilities of sex. People would cease seeing sex as something that was intrinsically linked to new life and to the sacrament of marriage.
Does anyone doubt that this is where we find ourselves today?
My Comment: Pope Paul VI got part of it right, men would lose respect for women and treat them as mere instruments (objects) of selfish enjoyment" rather than cherished partners.
The Holy Father could have added, but did not, that women would lose respect for men and treat them as mere instruments (objects) of selfish enjoyment" rather than cherished partners.
