Sexual License.

I saw this post on a thread at Thinking Anglicans. It reads in part:

Nobody is suggesting that homosexuals are excluded from the church. What is at issue is the sexual licence such people have within the living out of Christian faith.

If the agenda of revisionists were simply about inclusion there would be no dissent...but in honesty the fight is for sexual licence to be granted to those of a homosexual inclination. That changes the goal posts considerably.

At first, this made my blood boil. Our 6 year old relationship in which Michael and I have shared richer and poorer, sickness and health is nothing but "sexual license." And the serial divorces of certain right wing bishops are not "license" how?

But then I thought, "Where can I get a sexual license?"

Perhaps from the Department of Motor Vehicles. Bring a photo ID and 20 bucks. I wonder if there's a beginner's "Provisional" license? How do you study for the written test?

Going to the Dept. of Motor Vehicles constitutes torture under the Geneva Convention.

...especially, Brad, at the end of the month.

But Counter, I would think the driving part of the test might be fun!

     By reducing our lives and our loves with all their complexity to mere sexuality, it denies us the status of full, feeling, living human beings. It makes it much more convenient to deal with us. Unfortunately, by treating us as subhuman, the only license issued is one that gives permission to engage in violence.

There's quite a bit of sex on the BBC, especially after 9.00 p.m. And we have to buy a license in Britain to watch the BBC. So perhaps that's what they are on about.

Twenty bucks? That's a cheap license.

I wish I had (a) sexual license.

     I had a sexual license once when I was 18 or 19, but I seem to have mislaid it.

When I started as chalice bearer before being licensed as a lay eucharistic minister, I dearly wanted someone to ticket me for "bearing a chalice without a license."

     Oh, Wilfried, what a great image...

I did not know you had a spouse! I'm really, truly happy for you and your six-year covenant. Prayers for 60 more years for you two!
