My morning sermon is now available at Jesus' General:

An all too common theme in the policies and agenda advanced by the Christian Right is the exertion of increasing control over sexuality in general and the bodies of women in particular. Such control serves several purposes: it allows for the restriction of sexual behavior, it helps broadly regulate people’s lives, and preserves stratified power between men and women such that male authority over women is preserved.
