RE: NoFap Under Attack By Harpy
@Samseau, both St. Augustine and Thomas Aquinas thought prostitution should be legal. Their logic was essentially that while the act is a sin, its easy and legal availability would still be an overall net positive considering that a world full of men with pent-up sexual anxiety, with no available release, would cause worse effects on society. Basically they thought it should be legal to avoid the kind of "incel uprising" that you often hear "joked" about on the internet, and occasionally acted on by people like Elliot Rodgers. St. Augustine said without it, "the world would be convulsed with lust" - and Aquinas said that the government's job is to maintain peace and order, not to regulate morality. It's actually not a bad argument, since faithful Christians wouldn't be doing it anyway and those who do want to do such things find a way to regardless of legality. The problem with his argument though is that you could use the same logic to justify legal abortion, which I don't think he addressed since that wasn't as widespread in his time as it is in ours (but I could be wrong).

Jewish convert to Orthodox Christianity and best-selling author of "On The Masons And Their Lies."
