Yes, I’m Afraid Sexting is Sin

Because if you’re married sexting with someone besides your spouse is adultery and if you aren’t married and you’re sexting, we call that fornication.

“I say a relationship is a relationship, whether you touch that person or not,” Karam says.  In fact, he says research shows this kind of virtual, or “emotional infidelity,” can be just as harmful as a physical fling.  Blake says it’s true that sexting may not feel as wrong as meeting someone in a hotel. She cites the experience of one female client:  “It happened several times where she’d been on a business trip, she met somebody, and then they exchanged sexting afterwards,” Blake says. “And she is married. I had to actually say to her, ‘Do you realize this is cheating?’ “

It’s infidelity, impure and simple.  The fact that the question is even a question shows how very far most Americans are from any sort of moral center.
