Excellent blog, and I found the post on marriage very interesting
"In a pre-wedding party, a book was laid out for the guests to write down their thoughts on marriage. Typical to our age, the majority of comments were negative. One guest had written that marriage is, “Institutionalized prostitution.” Saint Augustine, in his work against the Manichees (who denied procreation), he said they made the “Bridal chamber a brothel.” (Against Faustus, 15.7 CSEL 25:430). Perhaps this is what can happen when chastity within marriage is totally ignored".

I wonder what was meant by 'Institutionalized prostitution' is this a referrel to contraception or lack of chastity in marriage.
