Gay marriage, transgender rights, delivery control--sex is on the center of a number of the so much divisive political problems with our age. The origins of those conflicts, historian R. Marie Griffith argues, lie in sharp disagreements that emerged between American Christians a century in the past. From the Twenties onward, a once-solid Christian consensus concerning gender roles and sexual morality started to collapse, as liberal Protestants sparred with fundamentalists and Catholics over questions of obscenity, intercourse schooling, and abortion. either those that endorsed for larger openness in sexual concerns and people who resisted new sexual norms grew to become to politics to pursue their ethical visions for the country. Moral Combat is a background of ways the Christian consensus on intercourse unraveled, and the way this unraveling has made our political battles over intercourse so ferocious and so intractable.
