To the editor:
As a grandmother of seven with five teenagers, I was appalled at the answers to the question "How young is too young for sex?" in the Double Take column of the J-W on Jan. 15. The appropriate age is when a male and a female fall in love and get married. Intimacy is a precious gift given to human beings by God and is not to be misused. We are not animals and should behave accordingly. We must use self-control and discipline ourselves to not give away our virginity until marriage.
My mother-in-law emphatically said many years ago, "Sex ain't sacred any more!" God intended true love to be kind, considerate and not demanding of its own way. This concept is good for young and old alike. Age isn't what makes the difference; it's our attitude and choice. The temptation of passion and lust play a big part in today's worldly concepts of sexuality. It's the same temptation, that's been around since Adam and Eve and will remain until the end of time.
