Raquel’s thoughts on marriage and "free" sexuality

The other day I was randomly looking at foxnews.com and CNN.com (though no one can be 100% “fair & balanced,” this seems a good way to try to stay as balanced as possible!), and came across some thoughts on sexuality and marriage from former sex symbol (which means finding an appropriate image to put on a blog was very difficult) Raquel Welch.

Because all people are made in the image of God and still retain that image-albeit tarnished, like the statue of liberty-non-believers can display real truth. Such, I think, is the case here as Welch examines the negative effects of the sexual revolution and birth control for both men and women, and the overall institution of marriage. Despite the attacks on marriage from many today, Welch truly upholds this institution. Now she may not admit it is necessarily God-ordained, but she does go pretty far in the right direction, describing it as the central aspect of a healthy society. Perhaps some of these same thoughts might be more spelled out in her destined-to-be-a-classic book Raquel: Beyond the Cleavage.

Last night Ellen the Degenerate responded to American Idol’s duet “Have you ever really loved a women?” by saying “Yes, I have.” So I guess that made this little tid-bit a bit more refreshing. Anyhow, here’s an excerpt.

It remains this way. These days, nobody seems able to “keep it in their pants” or honor a commitment! Raising the question: Is marriage still a viable option? I’m ashamed to admit that I myself have been married four times, and yet I still feel that it is the cornerstone of civilization, an essential institution that stabilizes society, provides a sanctuary for children and saves us from anarchy.

In stark contrast, a lack of sexual inhibitions, or as some call it, “sexual freedom,” has taken the caution and discernment out of choosing a sexual partner, which used to be the equivalent of choosing a life partner. Without a commitment, the trust and loyalty between couples of childbearing age is missing, and obviously leads to incidents of infidelity. No one seems immune.
