This is the question that matters: is sexual congress generative of more than simply tiny humans? Avoiding this question simply gets the conversation nowhere at all. Traditionalists are convinced that the only good of sex is its procreative possibility (a debate which is hardly limited to same-sex questions as the conversations around birth control in the Catholic Church indicate). Progressive orthodox Christians (The small ‘o’ is intentional here; Rod Dreher cannot simply define me out of orthodoxy based on our mutually exclusive views of Christian sexuality) can agree that sex is indeed generative, but that generativity is not simply a function of biological procreation. Generativity is the result of actions which love and nurture one another and all creation.
