It seems like we are faced with a deluge of sex scandals this year. What with the John Edwards affair to Tiger Woods, and now the Vatican. I think that is one of the main reasons why God commissioned me to start writing about sacred sexuality last year, in preparation of the sex scandals to come. The main reason I think why people are having so many sexual struggles is because sex is highly misunderstood within our culture, and is treated with disdain and suspicion within certain mainline churches. It seems like the mantra of many churches is that sex is a necessary evil which we have to put up with for the sake of keeping the planet populated, and that the greatest level of spirituality can only be reached if one is single/celibate. What nonsense! It is attitudes like this keeps us from enjoying and benefitting from sex, as it was meant to be by God - a physical expression of God's love that creates a physical and spiritual union between a man and a woman.
