Religion and Monogamy: From the Ridiculous to the Horrible

Christian Sex Books

Contrary to the stereotype of puritanical sexual mores among the US Christian community, evangelical Christians have not shunned sex as purely functional, instead embracing it as a wonderful part of God’s creation and urging a full sexual expression – within a monogamous marriage of course.

“I always thought that sex was one of the greatest gifts the almighty God could give to people,” said Kevin Leman, a Christian psychologist and author of several books about sex within marriage.

Iranians to be Stoned for Adultery

Eight women and one man convicted of adultery are set to be stoned to death in Iran, activists said today.

In the recent years, reformist legislators demanded an end to death by stoning as a punishment for adultery, but opposition from hard-line clerics sidelined their efforts.

Eight women and one man. Go figure.

  1. I think the first link might be broken. Could you fix it? I’m anxious to read about the joys of two-minute, lights-out, missionary-position, Jesus-is-watching sex.

  2. Nooooo, we’re not prudes, we WANT people to enjoy sex- within marriage of course, otherwise you still go straight to hell! (And, uh, us gay folks who’ve technically not become legal-to-marry anywhere, are we allowed to enjoy sex, too, or just shrivel up from guilt?)
    HHL, it’s like shooting fish in a freakin’ barrel. Fun, but WAY too damn easy. *sigh* Oh those wacky fundies.
