150. All this brings us to the sexual dimension of marriage. God himself created sexuality, which is a marvelous gift to his creatures. If this gift needs to be cultivated and directed, it is to prevent the “impoverishment of an authentic value”.(John Paul II, Catechesis (22 October 1980), 5) Saint John Paul II rejected the claim that the Church’s teaching is “a negation of the value of human sexuality”, or that the Church simply tolerates sexuality “because it is necessary for procreation”.(Ibid., 3) Sexual desire is not some thing to be looked down upon, and “and there can be no attempt whatsoever to call into question its necessity”.(John Paul II, Catechesis, (24 September 1980), 4)
Toleration of sex for procreation simply reduces human beings in value to breeding stock, and consigns us to the role of animals. Remember to check Amoris Laetitia online here.
