    Why do some religions disapprove/condemn using protection in love life even in these modern days?

    We have recently been to some lessons for engaged couples in our local church before we got married and we were shocked to find out that our religion still states we are not allowed to use any protection in our relationship. Isn't this a bit outdated nowadays?
    I don't want to start a fuming fight between religious and not-so-religious people with this, but please do share your opinion!
    And of course, please respect those too whose opinion differs from yours. Thank you!

    My guess to why Catholics and other religions ban the practice of safe sex is growth in their church. The expected way to engage in sex is to be married first. Each baby born is usually an automatic member of the church. Growth in church is my answer. Thanks for the great question!

    @diyomarpandan: I hope you won't find my comment offensive, but:
    What do you think of families in Africa - or for that matter anywhere else in the world - who have 5-6+ children and they are unable to feed them? Many children die because of that, meanwhile their parents just keep bringing more and more people to the world?
    I understand that your religion is very important to you and for other people, but why would a religion condemn something that in fact just serves humanity to stop to destroy itself? And religions do this only because they have an 'allmighty' god and 'he' wants more loyal followers?
    Sorry if I still sound offensive (I don't want to hurt you or other religions at all), but the reason I don't follow ANY religion is because they have 'rules' like this. It is ridiculous to give birth to tens of children if you are unable to feed even one and the other circumstances around that child are not baby-friendly either. Sure, I know that now religious people usually say that 'God will help you, no matter what', or when the child dies, they will get to a 'better place', but am I the only one who feels a huge controversy here?

      Ohh, okay, sorry I misunderstood you smile.
      Still, I hope someone who is deeply religious will once answer my questions, as I really want to be opened to every aspect of life and to understand these views.
      Thanks for commenting!
