Mindmap what has contributed to tha change in society over the last 50 years
Abolition of Slavery
Voting rights for women
Right to free speech
Introduction of the contraceptive pill.
These have allowed other groups to protest for equal rights in society and set a standard of acceptance for all groups of people
Historical Events
Technology, media and travel have allowed people to come across attitudes and ways of living that are different from their own.
This opens peoples minds to the possibility of a different response to things.
In recent decades the Uk has become increasingly multi faith and multi ethnic.
This leads to a greater acceptance of different values and traditions.
Society now celebrates diversity as a positive thing.
Soap operas explore issues often presenting less traditional values as being acceptable and gradually encourages people to accept them as the norm e.g. in the 50s a typical family would have been a stay at home mum, working father and 2 children.
This has been replaced by working mums, mixed race or homosexual families
These changes in perception have led to a reduction in traditional acceptance of Christian teachings.
The church is still deciding on its stance on many issues - whether to embrace these changes or remain bound by biblical principles.
Influence of Religion
C) Explain how attitudes to marriage, homosexuality and divorce have changed. (8)
Sex outside Marriage
Know and understand Christian attitudes to sex outside marriage.
– A sexual act between a married person and someone other than their marriage partner.
– Living together without being married.
– Staying with your marriage partner and having sex only with them.
Pre –marital sex
- Sex before marriage.
– having sex with a number of partners without commitment.
Are the lyrics in this song still relevant to modern life?
The Bible teaches that sex outside marriage is wrong. Sex is an act of love and commitment and should only take place within a marriage. This includes sex before marriage, adultery and homosexual sex.
Create a mindmap on the biblical teachings on sex outside marriage.
“You shall not commit adultery.”
Exodus 20 :14
“Do you know your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit”
1 Corinthians 6:19
"God wants you to be holy and completely free from sexual immorality''
1 Thessalonians 4:3
"Anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart''
Matthew 5:28
"The Wife's body does not belong to her alone, but also to her husband. In the same way, the husband's body does not belong to him alone but to his wife''
1 Corinthians 7:4
"Marriage should be honored by all, and the marriage bed kept pure, for God will judge the adulterer and all the sexually immoral."Hebrews 13:4
Catholics believe sex outside marriage is wrong because:
The Bible only allows for sex with marriage partners.
Children born outside marriage may have a less stable life.
Celibacy is the only fool proof method to avoid STI's.
Loving sexual relations unite a couple.
Adultery breaks the vows of faithfulness.
The Catechism teaches “The sexual act must take place exclusively within marriage. Outside marriage it always constitutes a grave sin”
Catholic Teachings
Christian Teachings
All Christians think adultery is wrong.
Some liberal Christians do permit sex before marriage if the couple love each other and are in a long term relationship and intend to get married in the future.
Some Christians think that the teachings of the church and Bible are old fashioned and out of touch with 21st century values.
Some Christians believe that cohabitation should be allowed. This helps them to reach a decision about whether they are suited
The Church of England report “Something to Celebrate” says that cohabiting couples are acceptable to the church if this is a step towards marriage
D) “Marriage should be the only place for a Christian to have a sexual relationship?”

The Bible ( Ephesians 6;1-4) also teaches about the relationship ‘children obey your parents ….. parents do not exasperate your children, instead bring them up in the instruction of the Lord’.
Christian Beliefs

Intentionally preventing pregnancy.
making a new life.
Having sex with a number of partners without commitment.
It's the most extreme race on earth: a contest with 250 million competitors and only one winner. Half of them will be male – half female. Ready or not, the race begins at top speed and from then on it's the survival of the fittest.
Within minutes most of them will be dead. The males can go faster but the females have more stamina. Older participants will definitely not last as long. Any kind of weakness will end in failure.
The climate is hostile and the landscape is varied: there are long tunnel like mazes in the dark to navigate. At other times the epic terrain could be described as mountainous with deep valleys. Take a wrong turn and the dead zone is entered. It could be likened to a war-like environment.
Within 30 minutes 99% of the participants will be dead or dying. The race continues for the few remaining survivors – now they enter the further darkness. After a long and difficult journey there can only be one winner.
What is the race?
B) Should it always be the mans job to decide to use contraception? Give reasons for your answer. (4)
Contraception is the intentional prevention of pregnancy, there are lots of different options available to couples who do not want children but want to have sex. The different types of contraception are divided into three main types- natural, barrier and artificial.
Rhythm Method
The rhythm method is about planning sexual intercourse around the woman’s menstrual cycle to avoid the fertile time,
You learn how to record signals that you are fertile to identify when it is safer to have sex.
Your GP or a family planning specialist will teach you this method.
If followed carefully it can be up to 98% effective, this means that out of 100 woman using the carefully, two will have an unplanned pregnancy.
It does not protect you from sexually transmitted diseases.
The male condom is, with the pill, the main form of contraception used by young people.
Condoms protect against STIs and pregnancy. Condoms are 98% effective – which means that 1 in 50 condoms may split or break.
Contraceptive Injection
The contraceptive injection (Depo-Provera) lasts 12 weeks. It releases the hormone progestogen very slowly into the body to stop ovulation.
Periods may become irregular or stop.
Regular periods and fertility may take a while to recover. It does not protect against STI's.
The Pill
There are two types- the combined pill and the progesterone only pill. They need to be taken at the same time each day and are taken every day until the pack is finished.
They stop a woman releasing an egg each month. They often reduce bleeding, period pain and pre-menstrual tension.
They do not protect against STI's.
The Patch
It is a small, thin, beige, sticky skin patch that contains the same hormones as the pill - estrogen and progesterone.
The patch is used for three weeks out of every four. A new patch is used each week.
They stop a woman releasing an egg but they do not protect against STI's.
The Coil
A small plastic and copper device is put into the womb. It stops sperm meeting an egg or may stop and egg settling in the womb.
They work for at least 5 years but periods may be heavier, longer or more painful. No protection from STI's.
The Diaphragm
The diaphragm is a device made of thin, soft rubber or silicone that is inserted into the upper part of the vagina to cover the cervix (neck of the womb).
They act as a barrier to sperm to prevent pregnancy but this doesn't protect against most sexually transmitted infections.
Morning After Pill
The Morning After Pill (Levonelle) is not technically contraception as it is used after unprotected sex or if contraception has failed (split condom etc). It stops a fertilized egg from implanting in the womb.
Sterilization is a permanent method of contraception, suitable for women or men who are sure they never want children or don't want more children. Male sterilization is called vasectomy.
This is abstaining from sex all together- it protects unwanted pregnancy and STI's.
c) Explain why people use contraception. (8)
People use contraception because it allows them to choose when and if they a baby.
Some people may decide that having a baby is not for them because:
They want to plan their family at a certain time.
They consider themselves too old or young.
They do not believe they would be good parents.
Becoming pregnant would be harmful to the health of the mother.
One or both partners carry a genetically inherited condition.
They feel they could not provide financially or emotionally for a child.
They have a lifestyle they feel would not be compatible with having a child.
In the case of a single man, he does not want to be responsible for a woman’s pregnancy.
