A New Definition of Rape

This is revolutionary in its implications for the lives of so many women. What is Rape/ Abuse vs. Sex and Foreplay is a very tricky line, especially because I think we hardly understand what sex is and who we are as fully human (without ignoring parts of yourself, i.e. your spirit or your mind or your body).

For so many women this changes the entire game; what was once remembered as a night she'd rather forget, is now a night that cries out for justice.

It is very very important, however, to remember that not all those who cry our for justice, are justified in their cries.



Porn, Masturbation and the Church

This is an old CNN Belief Blog post about a couple of pastors in Atlanta that are working to address the sexual addictions of their congregants. Healing the soul to help control the hormones. I like that they address sexuality as something that isn't just a problem to be controlled and feelings to be suppressed. They address sexuality in all its complexity.

The 28th Amenment

Tired of Politics? Tired of D.C. and their hideous pinstriped suits, fake tans and blown-out hairdos? Me, too. The campaign for the 28th Amendment is a few years old, but it reads:

Congress shall make no law that applies to the citizens of the United States that does not apply equally to the Senators and/or Representatives; and, Congress shall make no law that applies to the Senators and/or Representatives that does not apply equally to the citizens of the United States.

Like that? Me, too. It is not, however, the answer. Read the link and then check out these guys. They just might have some good suggestions.

John Piper on Race and the Church

John Piper can be a little feisty, tweet before he thinks (a la Rob Bell), and his theology isn’t perfect (but who’s is?). But, he isn’t John Piper for being a pastoral screw up. Here he talks about Race in the Church in the South, about growing up in segregated churches and being committed to interracial love for the rest of his life. A story worth knowing. Oh, and it isn’t theologically dense.
