A lesson in love on Sex Sunday
by Monica Furlong
Yesterday seemed to be Sex Sunday, what with the Archbishop of Canterbury writing in the subject in a Sunday newspaper. and the Quakers discussing their new report on sexual morality with Paul Ferris in Meeting Point.
This seems a good moment to say how vastly improved Meeting Point has recently become--yet another feather in the B.B.C. cap--discussing people's relationships to one another with great sensitivity and intelligence; not always coming down on the side of orthodox Christianity, but always coming down on the side of love.
Last night was no exception. Kenneth Barnes and Dr. Anna Bidder had all the courage and transparent goodness we have learned to expect from the Society of Friends.
No doubt they will be attacked for undermining traditional standards of morality.
My guess is, however, that the charity and wisdom with which they discussed human triangles and marital fidelity, pre-marital affairs and the situation of the homosexual, must have been a lesson in love to many who would neither understand or obey the conventional Christian ethic.
