Let me ask you . . .

So, you believe that God is perfectly O.K. with men having anal and oral sex with each other and women having oral sex with each other?

This is what we are talking about and arguing about . . . sexual ethics. Do you believe that covenant marriage sanctifies oral/ anal sex between people of the same sex? Why do you believe that?

It's funny, whenever I ask folks who push for the legitimization of LGTB relationships, they do NOT like answering those questions.

Seriously?

It's not about the physical sex. It is about two people sharing a love for one another. When we distill this down to some physical act, we diminish the love that two people can have for one another.
The forms of physical sex that you mention happen in heterosexual relationships all the time.

Yep, SERIOUSLY!

Yes, seriously!
I love my friends who are male . . . but I do not have sex with them! I have males who I live in a relationship of FRIENDSHIP with. You know what the difference is between a romantic relationship and a relationship of friendship is? I sure hope you know the difference.

Males who love one another but do NOT have sex with one another are usually called FRIENDS! Males who have sex with one another are called "lovers"! This is NOT rocket science!

And by the way, when a person enters into a sexual/ physical relationship with another, we ALL know that doing so CHANGES the relationship.

And you know what, it does NOT matter if anal/ oral sex happens in heterosexual relationships. So does a lot of other nasty crap happen in hetero relationships . . . nasty crap that God's people should not engage in.

Notable Quotes   


   "My wish is that, one day, formal education will pay attention to the education of the heart, teaching love, compassion, justice, forgiveness, mindfulness, tolerance and peace. This education is necessary, from kindergarten to secondary schools and universities. I mean social, emotional and ethical learning. We need a worldwide initiative for educating heart and mind in this modern age."

 – HH The Dalai Lama, interviewed in the Los Angeles Times


    "[Author Vincent Strudwick] reimagines church as catalyst, transfiguring an egoistic society back to an altruistic one, celebrating a God who is as weak as water, but as irresistible as a river. Decisions should be taken at the lowest possible grass-roots level, dialogue superseding proclamation, and embodiment replacing autocracy.

– The Rt. Rev. David Wilbourne, Assistant Bishop of Llandaff in the Church of England, reviewing Strudwick's book: "The Naked God: Wrestling for a Grace-ful Humanity" in Church Times.
