People, atheists included, generally believe "families" and "procreation" are "good", and also generally believe free sex and procreation-love-free-sex are "wrong", ok, less good. So the sexual revolution was only a partial success because it did not reach fundamental values. When theists demonstrate that style of thinking, it does not surprise me. However, atheists who reject only God but don't reject the values that came along with godliness are missing a huge point. To reject God with intellectual honesty, means to also reject god's teachings. Until we reject religious values en masse (as opposed to single issues such as equal marriage rights for gays) we will continue on our destructive sexual path. A true sexual revolution would destroy the institution of marriage entirely, among many other institutions, and substitute it a child-care contract.
This has nothing to do with the post, BUT what is happening in Wisconsin warms my activistr heart! I haven't seen Americans do a damn thing since the Civil Rights and Vietnam era. I was here for the sexual revolution and, yet, Americans are watching the biggest hypocrites in America stick it to them without even Vaseline.
