‘Society Never Gave Single People The Right To Engage In Sexual Intercourse’ Says FRC

The Family Research Council this week said that sex outside of marriage is not a “right,” and added society should “stop it,” “punish it,” “corral people,”  ”shame people,” and “do whatever” to end sex outside of marriage. The FRC also lambasted the Supreme Court for a 1972 decision that overturned a ban on contraception.

The FRC, a certified anti-gay hate group, doesn’t believe same-sex marriage is real, so that didn’t even enter into this discussion.

Family Research Council head Tony Perkins listened as FRC senior fellow Pat Fagan (image, top) told him that “what this court case said was young people have the right to engage in sex outside of marriage. Society never gave young people that right, functioning societies don’t do that, they stop it, they punish it, they corral people, they shame people, they do whatever.”

Right Wing Watch has the audio, and published this transcript of Fagan’s comments:

The court decided that single people have the right to contraceptives. What’s that got to do with marriage? Everything, because what the Supreme Court essentially said is single people have the right to engage in sexual intercourse. Well, societies have always forbidden that, there were laws against it. Now sure, single people are inclined to push the fences and jump over them, particularly if they are in love with each other and going onto marriage, but they always knew they were doing wrong. In this case the Supreme Court said, take those fences away they can do whatever they like, and they didn’t address at all what status children had, what status the commons had, by commons I mean the rest of the United States, have they got any standing in this case? They just said no, singles have the right to contraceptives we mean singles have the right to have sex outside of marriage. Brushing aside millennia, thousands and thousands of years of wisdom, tradition, culture and setting in motion what we have.

It’s not the contraception, everybody thinks it’s about contraception, but what this court case said was young people have the right to engage in sex outside of marriage. Society never gave young people that right, functioning societies don’t do that, they stop it, they punish it, they corral people, they shame people, they do whatever. The institution for the expression of sexuality is marriage and all societies always shepherded young people there, what the Supreme Court said was forget that shepherding, you can’t block that, that’s not to be done.

Fagan was a Bush appointee and a senior fellow at the Heritage Foundation.

In 2000, Fagan wrote an essay on “the present homosexual movement and the other radical sexual movements,” and said “the homosexual lifestyle is learned.” The essay used the word “homosexual” 23 times.

Has he always been this stupid or is this dementia setting-in? No society has ever abolished sex outside of marriage; they've only put limits on who can do it. Usually it's only men. Even biblical societies permitted men of means to have concubines and slaves with whom they had sexual intercourse in addition to marriage. Whet this man said is just silly and misinformed — or stupid; take your pick.

I appreciate this site a lot. But I don't know why I am so attracted to reading about idiocy. When I read something like from the FRC, I ask myself: aren't these guys really outliers or fringe elements on the very edges of the bell-curve of moderate or normal thinking? And if they are fringe, why should I care what they say?

It would be very helpful to get organizations like the FRC in perspective: what is their own impact on "the commons"; how likely are these outrageous statements to become a movement or significant meme; who is listening to them, and what are those listening doing with the information they hear?

How many of us need society giving us the right to do anything, let alone what we do in the privacy of our own bedrooms? I sure as hell don't. Ever since a very young age, I knew that I didn't fit in with society. And not fitting in made me not give a damn what society was doing or saying.

"Society Never Gave Single People The Right To Engage In Sexual Intercourse." What a pile of shit!

I don't recall asking anyone's permission to have sex, other than obtaining the consent of the adult I wanted to have sex with.
