Safe sex: the truth

After reading my previous post, on the tragic case of Daniel Pelka, and the questions that almost certainly won't be asked about it, Fr Paul Noble, an Anglican, drew this report to my attention.

It is about a piece of research conducted at Oxford University, that postulates that monogamy in primates evolved, and is necessary, to protect the young of the species from infanticide.

Will anyone put the pieces together?

Instead of teaching young women that safe sex is making sure he uses a condom, we should be teaching them that the safest sex is marital love in a lifelong, monogamous marriage.

Why?  Because that is what the evidence proves.
