They weren't so "secular and modern"'when they crowded the streets to watch gays being hanged by lamposts, or rioted about cartoons and murdered over cartoons.The Iranians I know hate their government. They think it's backward, and they want to get rid of it. These are strong sentiments. The Persian people are very proud, intelligent, and surprisingly secular and modern. They'll do well for themselves once they have the right government.
And that is becoming comm0nplace throughout the Muslim world. What can be done about it?But for now, what can they do? If you protest in America, you go home at the end of the day. If you protest in Iran, you "disappear."
Of course they will. Who is going to stop them?The ayatollahs won't last another 5 years.
The simple fact is absetence only is just simply not reasonable in today's age. Blame it all on what you want, but unwanted pregnancies and STDs are something that need to be combated and contraception is the reasonable way.
Unless you are going to start forcing people into abstenence (good luck) contraceptions are the most reasonable way to combat these things in today's time.
I know many people that are turned off from Catholicism for the contraception reason. IMO, the whole reason Catholics have that in the religion is so that people will have babies and raise them as Catholics. It's a means to procreation for the religion.
