    Religion:Sex Before Marriage

    This article presents that ideas of Professor Peter Murdock of Yale University. While today's youth culture has become obviously more lax in their attitude toward premarital sex, it is not something that should be viewed as socially dangerous. Instead he highlights to advantages of "letting their glands be their guides," including less guilt, more compatible marriages, and an outlet for sexual desire.
    If religious groups were to alter their attitudes toward sex into something that adopts this type of viewpoint, perhaps teens would feel more welcomed into churches and not feel as if they have the finger pointed at them.
