Sidelines Online
(subscription) (TN): Jeff Patton, a Christian "sexpert" speaks of the joys of sex the biblical-way: "I think hot, passionate biblical sex the way scripture describes it is certainly the best sex. I think college students are being sold short and are making choices that will ultimately destroy their lives. I love to speak on it in biblical terms because no one else is willing to. [...] I am proposing that the best, hottest sex in the world is with one man and one woman in a lifelong relationship. It's free of guilt, shame, baggage, worry, consequences and you learn each other. I've been married 21 years next June, and I'm telling you that getting to learn a woman that intimately is absolutely mind-boggling."

IPP Media - Guardian
(United Republic of Tanzania): Rowan Williams, Archbishop of Canterbury, clarifies what the current tension between Anglicans and Episcopalians is about: "[Anglicans] are reading the Bible, studying the Bible and making out of the Bible as best as we can. As priest of the Anglican Church, I am obliged to study the Bible four times a day. And the issue in the Anglican Church at the moment has nothing to do at all with the place of the Bible. It is due to the fact that some people in the church, a minority, especially in the United States, have chosen to read the Bible in a new, very controversial way. Now that is not the way most of the church reads the Bible. The Bible is still important to most of us."
