Let them love God and have sex


I was talking to a friend the other day about the economy. People are scared, and we have every reason to be scared.

On the other hand, I thought, what is it best about being a person, about being alive?

Spirituality and sexuality.

And both can be developed, pursued, and enjoyed in the absence of almost any other opportunity.

I am not saying some equivalent of "Let them eat cake" - let the poor love God and have sex and stay poor.

But, if you are poor, and there is no money going around to be anything other than poor, and you are left with nothing other than loving God and having sex, then you will be relegated to the very finest expressions of the human body and spirit.

(That is, of course, if you have enough to eat. We had this conversation after we had both eaten lunch!)

Yeah, and some folks are letting their god get in between them and even a little self-lovin'!
