The Reverend Janet Edwards weighs in on the banning of burquas in a very thoughtful post on how Christian women might feel to have their religious symbols banned.
She previously weighed in on how a covenant relationship with God mirrors the intimacy necessary for a healthy sexuality.
When the Church insists that marriage vows are the exclusive doorway into moral sex, it removes itself from real and crucial discussions about the morality of sex – in part because a lot of immoral sex, like spouse battering and promiscuity, goes on within marriage, as well.
Janet is a wonderful leader in our community. I admire her willingness to take all sorts of risks for her faith.
