Ecological Benefits of Celibacy

Many problems are easier solved in well-chosen pairs. Marriages can be good for solving earth’s ecological crises. Yet, there are numerous ecological advantages to celibacy:

— Less resources are used producing reproductive fluids and babies.

— One avoids the indulgent consumerism commonly inspired or required by lovers.

— No children are produced, and overpopulation is limited. Overpopulation is a serious problem when accompanied by demands for modern industrial lifestyles that destroy nature.

— People with no children have more time and resources to invest in the welfare of humanity at large and all living beings.

— Infatuation may cause indifference to ecological crises.

— Relationships or sexual feelings may derange a person’s mind, preventing them from being reasonable and living in harmony with nature.

About St. Valentine

The noble martyr St. Valentine did not approve of fornication. He wanted all unmarried people to be celibate. For unmarried people to celebrate their carnal relationships on St. Valentine’s Day is an insult to the poor man and an expression of hatred for what he believed in.

”…the body is not for fornication, but for the Lord; and the Lord for the body.” — Corinthians 6:3
