  • Passion of Christ Play Banned in Oxford after Councillor Mistakes it for Sex Show

    Brietbart - London ^ | April 17, 2014 | Nick Hallett
    A re-enactment of Christ's crucifixion that was due to take place on the streets of Oxford had to be cancelled after an official thought that "Passion play" meant "Sex show". The traditional play, organised by St Stephen's House theological college and St Mary and St John Church, involves a re-enactment of the trial and crucifixion of Christ in which actors playing Jesus, Mary, Pontius Pilate and Roman Soldiers would have paraded through the streets of the ancient university city.

    A woman's sex drive begins to plummet once she is in a secure relationship, according to research. Researchers from Germany found that four years into a relationship, less than half of 30-year-old women wanted regular sex. Conversely, the team found a man's libido remained the same regardless of how long he had been in a relationship.

"We all have the same instincts as animals. But we live in a society where it's been ingrained in us to do these things."

    Is it just global warming, or has it gotten a tad steamy in the multiplex lately? No sooner had viewers taken in the long, graphic lesbian sex scenes in the French coming-of-age drama “Blue Is the Warmest Color” last year than they were treated to “Stranger by the Lake,” a homoerotic thriller (also French) set in a gay cruising site, at which men could be seen pleasuring each other and themselves with unsettling, frankness. ........................................................ The challenge today is that, rather than being relegated to disreputable theaters or scruffy back sections of video stores, porn is on the home entertainment...

    A male-born transgender student was caught using the women’s bathroom at a local NC College by a female security officer and was escorted from campus and asked not to return until further notice. The suspension was lifted the next day, but he was told by the dean that he must bring medical proof that he’s a female in order for the school to allow him to use female restrooms. This student is now claiming harassment and discrimination and wants an apology from the school for the suspension and better policies toward transgender students. But the school says they’ve reviewed their...

US Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power defended the move as “part of the United States devotion to protecting the unrestricted right of individuals to have sex with whomever they choose, whenever they choose. To merely suggest that a person might lower their risk of infection by remaining faithful to a sexual partner or deferring sexual gratification...

Fran Forsberg has filed a complaint to Saskatchewan's Human Rights Commission on behalf of her six-year-old child, Renn, after the province's Vital Statistics Agency refused to change Renn's sex designation from "Male" to "Female" on the youngster's birth records. Renn was born with male genitalia but has identified as a girl since the age of three. According to the Canadian Pediatric Society, children establish their gender identity between 18 to 30 months.

    PHOENIX (Reuters) - An Arizona judge on Monday set a September court date to try again to determine whether convicted murderer Jodi Arias will be put to death for killing her ex-boyfriend nearly six years ago, court officials said. Arias was convicted by a jury in May 2013 of murdering Travis Alexander, whose body was found slumped in the shower of his suburban Phoenix home in June 2008. He had been stabbed multiple times, shot in the face and had his throat slashed. But the jury deadlocked on whether the former California waitress should be executed or face life in...

    I love the title, Wired for Intimacy. It evocatively describes the promise and hope God packaged with His gift of marriage. Because of the way we are made, husbands can strongly bind with wives (and wives with husbands). The monogamous sexual union is reinforced by the pleasure they share as they are intimate with each other. As Struthers shows, this is not just an emotional bonding—it involves complex neurological and chemical systems throughout our body. It may be what God was referring to when he declared husband and wife to be “one flesh” (Mark 10:8). Surveys and studies back this...

    Reality TV is about to get hot and heavy. The Post reports that WE tv has ordered a one-hour pilot of Sex Box, a reality show where couples will do the deed inside a soundproof box. Based on the U.K. show of the same name, the format takes real couples whose relationships are on the rocks, has them fornicate in the box, and then immediately address their issues with a panel of experts. The ‘in the moment’ approach “fosters conversations about intimacy that are completely filterless and emotionally honest,” according to the network’s pilot description.

    How does classifying most consensual sex as rape help rape victims? As a lawyer who has handled rape and sexual harassment cases, I can’t imagine how. But this radical result is what some want to happen in California. In endorsing a bill in the California legislature that would require “affirmative consent” before sex can occur on campus, the editorial boards of the Sacramento and Fresno Bee and the Daily Californian advocated that sex be treated as “sexual assault” unless the participants discuss it “out loud” before sex, and “demonstrate they obtained verbal ‘affirmative consent’ before engaging in sexual activity.” Never...

The “attack” left parents students and staff members reeling because it was the second such attack at the Contra Costa school during this school year. All concerned parties immediately played their politically correct, assigned role in the wake of this “terrible tragedy.” Of...

    Alasdair MacIntyre once quipped that “facts, like telescopes and wigs for gentlemen, were a seventeenth-century invention.” Something similar can be said about sexual orientation: Heterosexuals, like typewriters and urinals (also, obviously, for gentlemen), were an invention of the 1860s. Contrary to our cultural preconceptions and the lies of what has come to be called “orientation essentialism,” “straight” and “gay” are not ageless absolutes. Sexual orientation is a conceptual scheme with a history, and a dark one at that. It is a history that began far more recently than most people know, and it is one that will likely end much...

    A taboo is something that is vehemently “forbidden based on moral judgment and religious beliefs.” When confronted with a taboo, we do not consider breaking it. The line is drawn so clearly that we dare not cross it. Incest is a good example. It is condemned in every culture. The idea of sexual relations with a sibling or one’s child is abhorrent and rejected as a matter of course. We are horrified by it. We recoil from it. It is off the table. We totally close the door to it. This keeps us out of trouble. The power of taboos...

It took a feature-length article in the magazine to explain to readers that when men act less like men, heterosexual women want to have sex with them less. Despite women being told that they want men more involved in traditionally female household tasks like cooking, cleaning and childcare, when men actually do so, wives find their husbands considerably less sexy. Another “surprising” revelation: equality in a marriage, especially in the bedroom, was a major turn-off for women. A desire...

So when he embarked on the transition from female to male at age 18 — changing his name, taking testosterone and eventually undergoing surgery to remove his breasts — he left his female reproductive organs intact. In his mid-20s, he decided it was time. He stopped taking testosterone and started trying to get pregnant." Baystate Reproductive Medicine turned Inkster away, explaining...

    **SNIP** Demand for prostitutes surges ahead of the Super Bowl and officials warn trafficking gangs are likely to cash in on the influx of football fans, forcing people they have often bought into the country illegally to work in the sex trade. New Jersey's ports, freeways and major airports make it a "destination state for human trafficking," said Melanie Gorelick of the New Jersey Coalition Against Human Trafficking. "They are preparing to have as many arrests as possible during the Super Bowl and to make it as difficult as possible for traffickers to bring women and labor to the area."

Two years ago I went to dinner with a doctor who told me that I 'wasn't in touch with my femininity' as I 'didn't flirt or wear much make-up'.

    Many of you are aware that there is an Extraordinary Synod planned in Rome on the family.   There is surely no hiding the fact that the family is in real crisis, at least in the modern Western World, if not throughout many other parts as well. We do well to ponder the reasons and roots of this crisis, and develop strategies to begin to address the many problems.At the recent Bishops Conference Meeting here in America, Cardinal Sean O’Malley made some remarks that I would like to draw upon, even as I make some remarks of my own. Basing...

    Feminist Knesset Member Yifat Kariv (Yesh Atid) showed this week that she is extremely tough on sex offenses, but apparently on the condition that they are not perpetrated by Arabs against Jews. ..... MK Kariv said that she has submitted a bill calling for severe punishment of people who upload sexual photos and videos to the internet, with the intent of shaming women and girls who appear in the photos. She said that the police must beef up their cyber-crime units in order to prevent such sexual content from being viewed by children. "My goal is to put an end...

    Erica Campbell's new album promo shot is getting lots of attention. Perhaps not the kind she anticipated. The Mary Mary singer recently posted a photo of herself wearing a figure-hugging white dress on her Instagram page. The photo sparked lots of conversations about whether or not the dress was too sexy for a gospel singer. "Yes, you are a beautiful, curvy woman…but No ma'am you are singing the gospel of Jesus Christ," wrote pastor Stacey Woods on American Preacher. We compel men to come through our love for Jesus, but when we wear things that are distracting, the message is...

    Move over, Vito “Gropez” — yet another Albany politician has been accused of outlandish sexual harassment by young female staffers. Married-with-children Assemblyman Dennis Gabryszak, 62, tormented three workers with lewd antics such as sending a video of himself supposedly receiving oral sex, suggesting they shack up with him in hotels and talking about a tattoo on his penis, new court documents charge. **SNIP** “You’re so hot, you know what I want to do with you,” he allegedly said.
  • Anglicans and Sexual Contradictions

    Answering Protestants ^ | 12 December 2013 | Matthew Olson
    The Church strongly opposes contraception, in keeping with the historical position of Christianity. Openness to procreating life is one of the defining characteristics of marriage, which is primarily what makes homosexual "marriage" impossible. The Church also upholds the life-long commitment that is marriage. Contrast the Church's beautiful teachings on all of this against the positions of Protestantism -- those of Anglicanism, in particular. Anglicans once agreed with the Church on these subjects, up until the 1930 Lambeth Conference that approved contraception in some cases (which, of course, had a snowball effect). Here's the 15th resolution from the Conference: "Where there...
  • America and the Culture of Vulgarity—No End in Sight

    The collapse of the barrier between popular culture and decadence has released a toxic mudslide of vulgarity into the nation’s family rooms—and just about everywhere else. There is almost no remote corner of this culture that is not marked by the toleration of vulgarity, or the outright celebration of depravity. Lee Siegel has seen this reality, and he doesn’t like it. “When did the culture become so coarse?,” he asks, adding: “It’s a question that quickly gets you branded as either an unsophisticated rube or some angry culture warrior.” Siegel wants us all to know that he is neither unsophisticated...

    It’s been awhile since I’ve been to the local neighborhood mall, or any mall for that matter. Malls are the one-stop shopping spots for people jonesing for a retail fix. Kinda like the sex strip or drug alley found everywhere from small towns to megatropolises. Just like malls. Economic circumstances kept me from engaging in the type of quick and dirty retail therapy you can score only at a mall. A couple of years of unemployment in the Obamaconomy required pinching pennies until Old Abe cried “uncle.” The details that led me to the mall on a recent afternoon are...

    First men became enamoured with grooming regimes, but now it seems the metrosexual man has started talking in a more feminine way too. A new study has revealed that modern men are starting to ‘uptalk’ by rising in pitch at the ends of sentences. The speech pattern is associated with young women from southern California, notably Clueless lead character Cher Horowitz, but is now common amongst younger people.
