As a result of some feedback I received on my “do me a favour” post, I feel compelled to clarify some things:
That post was not intended as an attack on any individuals’ decision to go to university. It was a rant at the tone of society as a whole (and the Church seems to support society’s values in this area as well). I was simply ranting at society’s value of pursuing education over starting a family at a young age. I was not implying that people who go to university do not work hard, and was not saying that university has no value. I said it has no value for me, at this time, and that it is not the be-all and end-all to having a successful career, or life.
As for my comment about birth control, I simply wonder if it is God’s intention for us to “play God” and decide when it is in our best interest to have children. I think he knows better than we ever could (as in everything else). I did not just say that I think birth control is wrong, I simply said I wonder if it is.
I meant no offense to anyone, and if anyone still feels offended over my thoughts on these issues….well go ahead, it’s a free country.
