Liam Neeson: Sex Has Lost Its Mystery for Young People

It's often said that Catholics are anti-sex. I'm always a little amused by that as Catholics are also blamed for having too many children. We do oppose the cheapening of sex.

Actor Liam Neeson, in a story that appeared in Irish Central seems to diagnose the problem quite well:

Action star Liam Neeson has said he regrets the loss of the sanctity of sex in modern day culture and continuously struggles with the the sexualized nature of society.

The 'Taken' star said he blames the cheapening of sex for ruining loving relationships.

Speaking to the Catholic Herald, Neeson, who has two teenage sons, Micheal, 17, and Daniel, 16, explained: "I'd hate to be a kid now, because we're all inundated with so much information about sexuality, coming at us from everywhere – the media, the advertising billboards, just everywhere – and it must be so confusing for them."

"There's a problem that, if you become over-familiar with something, it moves from the sacred to almost the profane," he said.

"The act is very, very special. It's full of mystery and wonder, and I'd hate us all to get to the stage where we just treat it lightly, because it deserves more than that."
Now, if we could just get people to see that Catholicism is the antidote.

Great point. But his point is still valid. We're all working our way towards truth. Some paths are more circuitous.

Ah, but he has teenagers now... Funny how atching your children grow up can suddenly make tired old conventional wisdom acquire new brilliance.

He has also been widowed. Perhaps he misses what he had and came to a new understanding of what he lost.

God works in mysterious ways.

@elm, actually, I don't think "person realizes a thing's value after losing it" counts as one of the "mysterious ways" God works. It's one of the slightly bitter ironies that are just how the world works, but it's not really mysterious.

@Sophia's Favorite, this might be God bringing good out of tragedy.
