GK Chesterton once said, "before you move a fence, you should find out why it was put there in the first place." That bit of wisdom is fitting for today, especially in light of the breakdown of marriage and sexual ethics. Nearly a half century ago, there was a clear fence regarding sexual morality. The fence was called marriage, and it was respected as the place fitting for God's gift of sex. However, the sexual revolution legitimized the idea that sex outside marriage is ok. Consider the fallout of what's happening in Hollywood. The #Metoo movement and here in Kentucky, a sex scandal involving Louisville police officers. The sexual revolution has taken its toll. It's time to put the fence back in place, for the safety and protection of everyone.
