Paradoxes of the sexual revolution to be explored at next Archbishop’s Lecture
Mary Eberstadt, author of “Adam and Eve After the Pill: Paradoxes of the Sexual Revolution,” will deliver the next Archbishop’s Lecture Series 7 p.m. Feb. 11 in Bonfils Hall of the John Paul II Center in south Denver. The title of her lecture is “Myths of the Sexual Revolution.”
Eberstadt will show how the sexual revolution has victimized the weakest, from the fetus left legally unprotected in the womb, to generations of children falling between the cracks of what is now a sad cliché, “the broken home.” She’ll also explore the many paradoxes of the sexual revolution—for example, how sexual freedom has actually led to a more restricted society, where women often feel unsafe, and how men, far from achieving greater virility with access to pornography, have been weakened; and how the promise of greater happiness outside of marriage simply isn’t true.
The John Paul II Center is located at 1300 S. Steele St. in Denver. Seating is first come, first served. For more information, call 303-715-3230.
