“Crazy people are considered mad by the rest of the society only because their intelligence isn't understood.”
― Weihui Zhou


Society mocks
abstinence; but God detests
all fornicators.

God gives us sacred
purity; society
offers sex. Who's right?

@EmmaCG Society is the aggregate of people living together in a more or less ordered community. If some people believe in god then he is still not a part of the society but rather just a part of that person. They are separate.

No offense, but it's literally like 5 lines. They didn't even really write anything good, they just asked a question people have been asking for like 20 years.

By my beliefs, Purity is a very prideful thing. It is good to be it; you want to be pure. When you marry, you have saved yourself for him or her. Its like saying,'I have waited this long, and I am giving you all of me. As believers, we are God's bride. We have sinned against him with the earth, but he takes us anyways, so we may stop that. In conclusion, God's is right because that is how he wants us to be.

I believe that neither are right since religion is a choice rather than a staple in life. Although my views are slightly different, I still give praise for this piece, I enjoy the simplistic approach to such a controversial topic and the approach you took towards it. The end question was the line that I feel had the most impact, as it internalized a question that has no true answer, just one that varies depending on individual morals, beliefs, etc. It really makes everyone who reads self-evaluate and realize how they truly feel on a topic that they may not have worried about previously or often enough to make an impact. The morals and views behind the author may contradict with some reading this piece, but it truly does raise the same question in every reader and perhaps the final answer in each reader's lives. It serves as possibly a simple question in one's life, but also possibly a major turning point in one's beliefs or morals. Though differing in outcome, I still admire this piece as if I had agreed with it wholeheartedly.

God is but a creation of society, Why deny sexual freedom to humanity for what? sacred purity? What about a HAPPY life?
