Has the Catholic Church Been Invaded by Worldly Thinking? 2/11/2014
What the heck is going on? What’s with all the talk about sex in Church?

What’s this, the Oprah Winfrey Show?
An AOTM Town Hall Meeting:

How do we men defend our sons and daughters, protect purity, champion chastity, pulverize pornography, and find sanctuary in our churches?

Here's a video preview of the event:

Were our grandmothers’ Catholic attitudes on sex, morality and marriage repressive, and did that lead to the sexual revolution?

Has the Church’s new approach — Virtus programs, more sex-ed in the classrooms, and Theology of the Body — really made us better Catholics?

According to a recent Gallup poll, Catholics tend to be more liberal than non-Catholics on the moral and sexual issues:

- On Abortion: 40% of Catholics say it’s morally wrong, while 41% of non-Catholics say no.
- On Premarital Sex: 67% of Catholics say it fine, while 68% of non-Catholics say it is wrong.
- 71% of Catholics say Divorce is not morally wrong, while 57% of non-Catholics say it is.
- Babies Outside of Wedlock: 61% of Catholics are okay with it, while 52% of non-Catholics are not.
- And a whopping 54% of Catholics say Homosexual Relations are morally acceptable, while 45% of non-Catholic disagree

No Wonder We Voted Obama Into Office TWICE!
On Tuesday February 11, the Argument of the Month will tackle the Church’s new approach to sexuality head on. In a respectful and non-graphic panel disucssion of issues relating to chastity, morality and fidelity in marriage, fathers and sons are invited to participate in a discussion between the AOTM audience and our panel of experts.
What do we do when Theology of the Body turns into Theology of the Bawdy?

Filmmaker Sean Finnegan, President of Anteroom Productions, director of the documentary "Out of the Darkness” a feature length documentary on pornography and the sexual revolution will defend the proposition that the Church of our grandfathers was not "repressive” in the least, and that we need to get back to the old-world attitudes about morality and family life.

Jason Adkins, executive director of the Minnesota Catholic Conference, will defend the Church’s programs, such as Theology of the Body, at least to the extent that they reinforce the traditional understanding and role of gender at a time when it is under fierce attack.

Luke Bauman is a Theology of the Body proponent and will argue that John Paul’s TOB reminds us of who we are so that we can better understand God and the profound love he has for us.
AOTM regular Michael Matt will moderate.

The AOTM wants your input: Step right up to the microphone, men — and let’s get this conversation started!
