A Church I Could Believe In

A church, right here in Texas, encouraging couples to have sex every day of the week. My God, once a week would be a delight!
Mr. Young, an author, a television host and the pastor of the evangelical Fellowship Church, issued his call for a week of “congregational copulation” among married couples on Nov. 16, while pacing in front of a large bed. Sometimes he reclined on the paisley coverlet while flipping through a Bible, emphasizing his point that it is time for the church to put God back in the bed.

“Today we’re beginning this sexperiment, seven days of sex,” he said, with his characteristic mix of humor, showmanship and Scripture. “How to move from whining about the economy to whoopee!”

Oh, but there's a caveat. "Married couples" are encouraged to get it on. Gay couples can probably go fuck themselves. That's my guess. I'm using the word fuck in one of its many other permutations here, obviously.

But it's a nice thought, being told by a pastor to go have sex to strengthen your relationship. But only those relationships which are deemed of value. The rest of us can (and will, in their eyes) go to hell.

I agree with Nina. I love Rio too.
