COLORADO SPRINGS. Pope Paul VI’s 1968 encyclical outlining the Catholic Church’s teaching on contraception was poorly received and appeared to be an inadequate response to the sexual revolution. Nonetheless, his prediction that efforts to separate sex from procreation would lead to the objectification of women has been born out over the past 50 years, said a well-known Catholic speaker at Holy Apostles Parish on May 15.

Prenups, marriage: no match made in heaven
