Thoughts to Consider…

Let us therefore no longer pass judgment on one another, but resolve instead never to put a stumbling block or hindrance in the way of another.  I know and am persuaded in the Lord Jesus that nothing is unclean in itself; but it is unclean for anyone who thinks it unclean. — Romans 14:13-14 (NRSV)

There is no biblical sex ethic.  The Bible only knows a love ethic, which is constantly being brought to bear on whatever sexual mores are dominant in any given country, or culture, or period. — Walter Wink

Private consensual behavior between persons over the age of consent shall be the business only of those persons and not subject to legal regulations. — 1970 Resolution of the UUA General Assembly

Our culture needs a sexual ethic focused on personal relationships and social justice rather than particular sexual acts. — Religious Declaration on Sexual Morality, Justice and Healing

In my life, I have seen many sexual activities labeled “going too far.”  When I was a child in an average American neighborhood, sex within marriage was permitted, but premarital sex was “going too far.”  I remember when vaginal intercourse was all right but oral sex was “going too far.”  Then oral sex became acceptable but anal sex was “going too far.”  Then came group sex, then bisexuality, then… Where will this end? — Jay Wiseman, BDSM author and educator

Do not do unto others as you would they should do unto you.  Their tastes may not be the same. — George Bernard Shaw
