As individuals, we may be aware of it all. And speak out against much of it. And then get rejected as overly critical hypocrites nt friends and relatives who talk freely about our own shortcomings.

We are in an age - one of those ages - where many could benefit from constructive criticism but the fashion is for free and frequent destructive comment. Meanwhile, as always, businesses and institutions and those who speak for them focus on what it is safe and popular to criticize - and on the individuals it is safe, in their circles, to criticize.

Not to diminish any other sin, but Paul indicated that "sexual sin" is different, maybe even worse that some of the other sins.

1 Cor 6:8
"Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a person commits are outside the body, but whoever sins sexually, sins against their own body."

Also, I think that "sexual sin" encompasses many of the other sins, such as covetousness (wanting something that you do not have), theft (adultery is having sex with someone else's spouse) etc., which all boils down to not loving your neighbor.
