Front Page Article in Melbourne's "The Age" newspaper!

I'm back in Sydney after the Religion in the Public Square Colloquium - but looks like I'm still making waves in Melbourne.

Barney Zwartz is the religion editor for Melbourne's newspaper The Age. He was at the conference. He liked our paper so much he's written it up in today's news. Sex: the Bible says go for it.

Apparently it's on the front page (I'm reading it online). As I write this post, the Age website tells me 116 people are reading it, and it's the second most popular article of today's newspaper.

And it's been picked up by WA Today and the Brisbane Times. According to The Age's website, this was the most viewed article of the day, with 59,210 views as at 10:30pm.

Now that i've read the article: two points. I think the article is sensationalizing what you are saying and though I understand what you said (about being out and proud as Christians) I'm not sure the average reader would get the picture . Secondly, great quotes from your mum and from the other speaker but i still think that the article doesn't say that you are not proposing some kind of free for all...If it was just about saying Christians are not prudes then great but i have a funny feeling you were hoping for something a little more representative of your arguments. What can I say: Sex sells!
