Weekend Theology Corner: Elizabeth Bruenig: A better sex ethic
Excellent! It could however have been shorter. I suggest:
Shorter Elizabeth Bruenig: "In matters of sexual morality, as in all other matters, do unto others as you would have them do unto you, and love thy neighbor as thyself."
Still-Shorter Grigua's Prayer Version: "Don't be a dick!"
A Certain Lawyer, willing to justify himself: "And who is my neighbor?"
To which there are two answers:
Issa ibn Yusuf: "A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves..."
Shorter Issa ibn Yusuf: "You're being a dick."
