Piety Hill Musings

The ramblings of the 51 year old Rector of St. John's Episcopal Church of Detroit. Piety Hill refers to the old name for our neighborhood. The neighborhood has changed a great deal in the over 150 years we have been on this corner (but not our traditional biblical theology) and it is now known for the neighboring theatres, the professional baseball and football stadiums and new hockey/basketball arena.

Thinking about the Foley/Page scandal

With all the reports, allegations etc. concerning former congressman Foley, and a (many?) pages in D.C., it begs a bigger question...

What ever happed to the reality that anyone having sex, or attempting to have sex, or propositioning to have sex (or anything leading up to it), with anyone other than your husband/wife is immoral and therefore wrong? Have we as a society lost all shame in trying to split hairs about how old someone was, their orientation, their willingness or even tricking someone into a proposition - rather than calling it all SIN - something to be repented off?
