Get naked for Jesus!

The pastor of one of those nondenominational (Christian Lite) megachurches says his married congregants need to get down to business more often. The Rev. Ed Young of Fellowship Church in Dallas is challenging the sheep of his flock to have sex for seven straight days, and he plans to join in - not with them; with his own wife. You have to be specific, what with some of the preachers we have running around these days. Says Young, "God says sex should be between a married man and a woman. I think it's one of the greatest things you can do for your kids, because so goes the marriage, so goes the family." The AP reports that earlier this year, a Florida preacher, apparently confident in the stamina of his congregants, issued a 30-day sex challenge. Now, I like sex as much as the next guy, but 30 straight days? I'm guessing that by about Day 22, the idea of getting nekkid with your significant other would be about as sexy as dental work. And, I hesitate to point this out, but there might be some points in that 30 days where, um, the ground might not be so great for planting, if you know what I mean. Hmmm.

Maybe they're replacing the communion wafers with aphrodisiacs of some sort?

And are they replacing the usual hymns with more mood-enhancing fare? I've never thought of "Onward Christian Soldiers" as being a good prelude to romance.

In my marriage 30 times might take 10 years.

Is Christian Lite kind of like Miller Lite? I hear that helps in the bedroom, too...

The funny thing about beer is that a little bit loosens up the inhibitions, but a lot might put a damper on the night's festivities. Unless you have some application for Miller Lite that I'm not aware of. ;-)

If nothing else, this does spotlight the endless adaptability of religion. Look at "intelligent design" -- it's an attempt (a dubious one, in my mind)to meld creationism with scientific findings of the last 150 years or so.

And telling your congregation to have a sex marathon is certainly a far cry from "lay back, close your eyes and think of England."
