I like you Dale and I love your Chesterton program and I love Chesterton. But I disagree totally with your interpretation of Catholic teaching about birth control and abortion and if Chesterton and every Pope who ever lived agrees with you then I disagree with them too. The fact is you cannot have a viable society if you ignore the laws of biology, human sexuality and economics. And while it is true that our hedonist culture has glaring flaws, mostly caused by people who do not have any moral foundation – who are dishonest. But if you do away with contraception and abortion what you will have is universal misery. Apparently that is what you, Chesterton, and the Popes (if they agree with you, which I don’t grant at all) want.
Because I’m inclined to answer it the same way I’d answer this.
