I think of the article I read on Scottie's blog about the so-called Romeo laws and relate them to a book I was just reading about the Feudal ages - you know, castles and King Arther and stuff. Most specifically: is it all that unreasonable to think that kids in their teens are going to want to have sex? In fact, can we not almost presume it? They say that from historical norms, Mary, mother of Jesus, was likely about 14, maybe less, when she was gifted of child. Good thing we didn't have today's laws back then, God would have been in jail! And yet, what was acceptable in that time, what was even acceptable to God if the story be believed, is now a horrible thing? Immoral? Destructive?
