For the Weekend: Stephen Vincent Benet: The Devil and Daniel Webster XI

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."
