Would You Join A Church That Worships Sexual Orgasm?

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A congregation in southern Sweden that worships the sexual orgasm has lost its legal fight to become an officially registered faith community.

fireworksSweden`s Supreme Administrative Court (Regeringsratten) said it would not hear the appeal by the Madonna of the Orgasm church in Lovestad, ruling there were no errors in the Court of Appeals decision rejecting the church`s application, The Local reported."

There`s a razor-thin line between sexual ecstasy and religious euphoria. Great soul singers like Marvin Gaye and Prince have straddled the line between sex and God.

In one version of Marvin Gaye`s ode to the wonders of sex "Sexual Healing" Gaye mutters that sex is "something like being sanctified". Amen brother, after hearing Sexual Healing I don`t know whether to go to church or a whore house.

It should not be up to a government to define religion, a church that worships the sexual orgasm should be as kosher as Judaism or Catholicism.

The court ruled "Madonna" was generally understood as a reference to the Virgin Mary, and that it would cause offense to Catholics and other Christian denominations.

In secular Sweden as well as in the rest of the world "Madonna" Is generally understood as a reference to the pop star Madonna. I doubt that fans of Madonna, or the Virgin Mary for that matter, give a fig if there`s a church called "Madonna of the Orgasm Church."
