"Father Otto Gusti Madung SVD has slammed Indonesia's ban on sex outside marriage.
For him, this is a 'setback to the protection of the liberal rights of citizens, which include the guarantee of human dignity' - as if fornication were a right or constituted 'human dignity.'
Madung is a lecturer at the Institute of Philosophy and Creative Technology in Flores, East Nusa Tenggara province.
Talking to UcaNews.com (7 December) he presupposed that not having sex before marriage is a a religious moral imperative of private nature that does not apply to 'non-religious people'. He is wrong, because sexual intercourse is a matter with enormous social impact on the family, the state and society."
