People probably think I’m anti-religion. I’m not. I don’t think it’s right for me. I have faith, I have beliefs, and I have a very strong moral code. They’re not exclusive to religious types. Problem with religion is, it’s run by men, and I usually take issue with the stupid rules of man intervening where mortals shouldn’t tread.
My problem is when we go mixing politics with religion. Like the sticker on my scooter says, “The last time we mixed politics and religion, people were burned at the stake.”
Religion can, and has, accomplish both wonderful and horrible things. It’s like Uncle Pete says in Spider-Man, “With great power comes great responsibility.”
One church in Florida, “Relevant Church”, which dubs itself a casual and contemporary Christian church, has put out a 30-day sex challenge to its parishioners. In an attempt to stop the always-rising tide of divorce, the reverend is asking his married parishioners to have sex every day for a month.
They’ve even created a guide with an “exercise” each day. I haven’t examined it too much, but I suspect people will need other sources for how to go beyond just committing to having sex each day to instead having great, mindblowing sex and stoking the romance, but, hey… sex every day is something I think is awesome.
You can check out the church’s website here, but beware of its bandwidth doing the herky-jerky with so many surfers coming from all the different media covering this “revolutionary” story. If it’s giving you a message about server problems, just try again.
Personally, speaking as one of the undersexed, I think it’s a crime that anyone who has the option of frequent sex is not capitalizing on it. Sex, it’s better than valium, it’s free, and it’s heart-healthy. Frequent sex inspires conversations and does wonders for both people’s self-esteem, and poor self-esteem and lack of trust are two of the biggest catalysts for relationships failing, aside from no one getting laid.
Sex every day makes sense. Nice to see some churches getting in on the action.
