stains of sin. The world requires that unmarried women should be 

chaste, while it gives almost unbridled license to men. A girl 

detected in amours is disgraced and often made an outcast. In young 

men such irregularities are freely tolerated. They are "a little 

wild"; they "sow their wild oats"; but open profligacy, the seduction 

of innocence, the ruin of poor girls, adultery, harlotry and its 

diseases do not hinder men from marrying, nor from requiring that 

those they marry should have spotless reputations. It is not for a 

moment permitted that women in these matters should behave like men, 

and a pure girl is given to the arms of a wasted debauchee, and her 

babes are perhaps born dead, or suffer through life with syphilitic 

diseases, while she endures a long martyrdom from disordered, 

diseased, and unrestrained sensuality. For the unmarried, young men, 

soldiers, sailors, and all who do not choose to bear the burdens of a 

family, society has its armies of prostitutes--women like others, and 

more than others, or in less reputable fashion, the victims of the 

unbridled lust of men. They are everywhere tolerated as 

 

 

"NECESSARY EVILS," 

 

and, in some places, protected or regulated; and, from economical or 

philanthropic considerations, or both, combined efforts are made to 

free them from the contagious diseases which for some centuries have 

been a curse attending this form of the violation of the laws of 

nature--one of the consequences of lust which is the divorce of the 

sexual instinct from its natural use and purpose. 

 

The Christian 

 

 

LAW OF MARRIAGE, 

 

as set down in the Holy Scriptures, and defined by the best writers on 

moral theology, is in harmony with nature, in consonance with the 

higher nature of man. "God hath set the earth in families." Adultery 

is a sin, because it disorders that divine arrangement. Fornication is 

a sin, because it prevents pure marriages. Prostitution is a sin, 

because it is a sacrifice of women, who might be wives and mothers, to 

the selfish lusts of men. All useless indulgence is a waste of life, 

and a kind of suicide. In a pure marriage union, men and women unite 

themselves with God in acts of creative power. The progress of 

humanity depends upon individual development and the conditions at 

generation and gestation. With culture and a harmonized development, 

we acquire a higher and more integral life. When two parents are in 

their highest condition and in 

 

 

A TRUE UNION 

 

with each other, the child combines the best qualities of both 

parents. When parents are not in the unity of a mutual love, the child 

may be inferior to either parent. The intensity of mutual love tends 

to the reproduction of the best faculties of both parents in the 

child. When men or women are exhausted or diseased the race
