The sexual revolution as a case study
Rev. Dr. Mathew Clark
Tuesday 17th October
8pm at Lindisfarne House

A popular book once argued that men and women come from different planets – Mars and Venus. This useful metaphor can be invoked in understanding differences in the basic understanding that each of us brings to any discussion of issues such as human sexuality, science and religion, and the value of human life. In 1945 both religious and public morality affirmed (yes, often hypocritically) that legitimate sexual intimacy should occur solely within the bounds of a permanent hetero-sexual marriage covenant. For a sixteen-year old in 2017 UK, 1945 sounds like an alien planet. This talk focuses on the philosophical and cultural transition underlying the change, and reflects on the dynamics of two opposing world-views in conflict: Judaeo-Christian and secular humanist.
