Occasionaly the Ratzinger Fan Club is proud to host an essay written by ‘one of our own’ on a topic in Catholic tradition, offered for consideration and discussion by our peers.
In this particular case I am pleased to present an essay by my own father, Dr. Philip Blosser, titled “Sex in the City of God: Why God Made Sex and Marriage”.
When he is not otherwise blogging as The Pertinacious Papist, Dr. Blosser teaches philosophy at at Lenoir-Rhyne College in North Carolina, and is an associate of the Center for Theology. Among Dr. Blosser’s published works are Scheler’s Critique of Kant’s Ethics, a study which employed the scholarship of our late philosopher-priest Pope John Paul II.
This website was also privileged to reprint his essay “The Kasper-Ratzinger Debate and the State of the Church”, published in the New Oxford Review (April 2002), and “War and the Eclipse of Moral Reason”, presented at the Tenth Annual Aquinas/Luther Conference held October 24-26, 2002 at Lenoir-Rhyne College.
“Sex in the City of God” was published in The Lutheran Forum in 2005, and appears here in its original form by permission of the author, who retains the copyright.
