Sexual Honesty

Tony Jones’ blog post “What’s a Christian to do with…Dan Savage?” got me thinking.

Maybe it’ll do the same for you.

My favorite part of all this?  One of Jones’ parting comments:

…many Christians are ready for our conversations about sexuality to expand beyond “what to do with the gays,” and instead have a more fully-orbed dialogue about sexuality and human identity.”

Read the comments accruing below Jones’ post.  They’re worthwhile.

What do you think?

    “What do you think (about sex)?”

    That’s a strange question to ask a recovering Southern Baptist…! I haven’t fully dropped all my indoctrination of 59 years. This is one area that is hanging on like a kitten to a tree branch. Slowly, slowly but surely this will change.

    You’re hilarious. Yeah, I think it’s because we’re taught NOT to talk about it…at least in the ways you need to. And by saying “you,” I mean me, too.

The quote I live by

Have patience with everything that remains unsolved in your heart. Try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books written in a foreign language. Do not now look for the answers. They cannot now be given to you because you could not live them. It is a question of experiencing everything. At present you need to live the question. Perhaps you will gradually, without even noticing it, find yourself experiencing the answer, some distant day.
--Rainer Maria Rilke in Letters to a Young Poet
