A group of young Catholics decided to respond to the 22 youth, all employees at BuzzFeed, that participated in this post which shares their reasons in favor using contraceptives. The response wasn’t an official BuzzFeed post, rather the type made by BuzzFeed users; it can be found here.
I think the answers given are solid, convincing and serve as good material to speak about the subject. Looking and comparing the perspectives on the issue might be a good way of starting an interesting dialogue, whether it be to deepen in our Catholic faith or to help others who struggle to understand it.
That said, we must recognize that the Church’s position on this issue is one of the most difficult to comprehend, albeit not for this reason, less true or less urgent. We must be as clear as we are patient.4 more responses offered in the post without an accompanying image:
