Okay, now here’s something I can challenge.

Catholics had a less than approving attitude toward sexuality for centuries. Enough so that JPII devoted lots of attention to correcting these attitudes through his teachings/writings on human love and chastity. (Good stuff, by the way.)

Like the Catholics, Protestants have had a long history of distrust of the body, along with other material considerations, due to fears about lust, avarice, idolatry, etc. This is changing, and we reached this place in less than a thousand years! :mrgreen:

Fundamentalists are even writing books about sexuality with openess and reverence, like Catholics. Will we ever give the same seriousness to relics, scapulars, icons, etc? I doubt it, but who knows?
