Christian tradition has long recognized that desires are shaped and often
perverted as a communal matter. The good news is that as surely as our
desires are formed communally, so our tastes can change and our confronting
destructive desires is a communal matter of sorts as well. This communal
shaping of tastes does not let us off the hook for our individual sins. It
rather means that we do not need to imagine that we confront them alone.
