Sexual Ethics and Communal Judgements: On the Pluralism of Virtues, Values, and Practices
Lustig, B. Andrew
Christian Bioethics. 1998 Apr; 4(1): 3-13.
Different judgments by Christian communities on issues in sexual ethics involve different weightings of various sources of moral authority, different understandings of the normativity of the natural, and different assessments of the scope of freedom to be exercised in relation to the goods of marriage. These fundamental differences of interpretation can be exemplified by the ongoing Roman Catholic discussion of the legitimacy of voluntary sterilization in certain "hard cases."
