Mahatma Gandhi on Sex and Marriage

Every now and then, folks on the left who regard Mahatma Gandhi as a hero and a kind of saint, stumble on to his writings about sexual morality and marriage. They are stunned to discover that their hero was a ferocious critic of the relaxation of traditional norms of sexual ethics, even going as far as to condemn the use and promotion of contraception. He vehemently opposed the efforts of early leaders of the birth control movement, such as Margaret Sanger. A recent example is from Salon earlier this year:
