Church Sponsored Sexathon

By Robert Paul Reyes

"The pastor of a mega-church says he will challenge married congregants during his sermon Sunday to have sex for seven straight days - and he plans to practice what he preaches.

`We`re going to give it a try," said the Rev. Ed Young, who has four children with his wife of 26 years.

Young, 47, said he believes society promotes promiscuity and he wants to reclaim sex for married couples. Sex should be a nurturing, spiritual act that strengthens marriages, he said"

Sex is the spark that ignites a romance, but it`s love and companionship that holds a marriage together. It would be a drudgery and not pleasure for a married couple to have sex seven straight days. My guess is that only a tiny percentage of the married couples will be able to meet the virtually insurmountable challenge of having sex for seven straight days.

It`s singles and couples who are "living in sin" who have sex like bunnies, not married couples. The Reverend will never succeed in "reclaiming sex for married couples." He would be well-advised to fine a more achievable goal, like finding a cure for cancer or saving our planet from global warming.
