Oh my. One of my pet peeves. I was raised Baptist and converted to Catholicism, but was away from the church in the 20-year interim, so I lack in the guilt department.

Something I don't understand is the adoration of virginity in the major religions, particularly that of the Virgin Mary. I'm cool with the mystery of the Virgin Birth, but don't understand why it would be necessary for Mary to "remain pure" even after the birth of Jesus. Like sleeping with Joseph, her husband, would somehow make her unclean, even though the (Varican II) Church is supposed to revere marital sex. I don't understand it.

We made sure we had the sex conversation with our kids starting at about 8.....Leading to open and frank discussions by 12.

Same here. Do you classify yourself as religious or not?
