Many Church people have a phobia about sex.
They neuter Jesus.
And they neuter God.
God is to them a disembodied spirit.
But how could the omnipotent creator of the universe be less than us.
The world is full of sex.
Humans, animals, plants and flowers, birds and bees.....
Sex is everywhere.
How could this be if God is anti-sex.
They may then say that sex should be only within the confines of marriage.
But God did not invent marriage.
He did not marry Adam and Eve before saying: "Be fruitful and multiply." Genesis 1:28 (NRSV)
And "God saw everything that he had made, and indeed, it was very good." Genesis 1:31 (NRSV)
It is natural for young men to sow their wild oats before settling down with one partner.
We see this in nature.
And we see this in humans.
That's the way it is designed.
But excessive promiscuity has always led to sexually transmitted diseases.
So moderation is advised.
But sex is not bad or banned.
God invented it after all.
And He created some of us homosexual.
So don't try and put us in the closet.
And don't try and neuter us.
