Totally non-biased man behind anti-gay study, Mark Regnerus: 'Sex doesn’t explain the world, religion does'

by Jeremy Hooper

This comes from a report about this past weekend's "It Takes A Family Conference," a project of the National Organization For Marriage's Ruth Institute. Mark Regnerus, on break from defending his flawed and widely denounced study that groups like NOM have used to attack gay families and our marriages, made his views about sex crystal clear:

Professor Regnerus, during one of his talks with students, pointed out the economics of casual sex, and essentially argued women have undersold themselves by embracing the hook-up, no-strings-attached campus sex culture.

“How much does sex cost? Literally nothing,” he said.

Meanwhile, women don’t have to marry to become successful in life, so many succumb to the notion that casual sex is acceptable, even though they prefer committed relationships, he said.

Underscoring that, sex has become “the opium of the masses,” that “we are lacking transcendence and sex is a transcendent act,” he said. Ultimately, casual sex is a disappointment, he added.

“Sex doesn’t explain the world, religion does,” he said. “Sex will come up short.”

What the hell does that last line even mean? I mean, really. Were the students unsure of what a non sequitur is and needed Mr. Regnerus to handily illustrate the concept?

Whatever he means by pitting the choice of prayer against the human commonality known as sex, it is more testament to what guides Mr. Regnerus' true views. As if we needed more.
