“Sex is my favorite sport,” Diaz gushed while promoting her new movie, “Bad Teacher.”
“Sex is the sexiest word in the English language,” she says in the June issue of Maxim Magazine. “Just the word is sexy to me. There’s something to it, don’t you think?”
Diaz, 38, who is cast as a foul-mouthed school mistress in her new comedy, said she is high on life but down on marriage.
“I don’t think we should live our lives in relationships based off old traditions that don’t suit our world any longer,” said Diaz, who insists she still believes in romance .
This exactly the kind of meaningless attitude towards sex and marriage that is poisoning our society, contributing to our culture of death, which is why Pope Benedict spent much of his recent visit to Croatia telling all people to recognize the beauty, joy and witness of Christian marriage and family life, and to reject secularism, artificial contraception, co-habitation and everything that is opposed to true love. He encouraged young people, especially, to “be courageous” and not afraid to make a real commitment to another person, showing that “it is possible, like Christ, to love without reserve.”
That men and women should be a sincere gift to one another, body and soul, united in a life-long commitment of love, is not, as Diaz suggests, some old, outdated tradition, but the true meaning of human sexuality and why we were created male and female. Society may have radically changed in the past 50 years, dulling our moral sensitivities, but the truth of who we are has human being has not and reclaiming this truth is paramount to building a true culture of life.
