An Interesting Week in Grapevine, Texas

I gotta give this guy Pastor Ed Young credit---he sure did come up with a marketable strategy for getting his name and his church's (Fellowship) out there. It seems the good pastor challenged his flock to take to the connubial bed with gusto this week, asking that married couples couple each day for a week as a way of re-establishing intimacy and understanding. Seeing sex in marriage as a gift from God, Pastor Young has energized his mega-church and caused a bit of a sensation in the process. Pointing to children as one of the main causes of sexual alienation between husbands and wives (KIDS--keeping intimacy at a distance successfully), the folks at Fellowship have been urged to lock the door, turn up the radio and get busy. I'm not a big fan of mega-churches, and I'm definitely not taken with charismatic Christianity (the Catholic church lost me when they started holding hands during the Lord's Prayer and then raising them in unison....thought I was gonna hear people speaking in tongues), but this church sounds pretty interesting.

You might restrike on Catholicism. Hand holding is gone and Latin is back. We may see the rollback of Vatican II before long. Still adjusting to neo-traditionalism.

Lock the door? Isn't that what KY jelly is for? Just smear enough on the doorknobs and the li'l buggers can't get in the room and the wife can't get out.
