Texas pastor to issue 7-day sex challenge Associated Press Wednesday, November 12, 2008 DALLAS The pastor of a megachurch says he will challenge married congregants during his sermon Sunday to have sex for seven straight days and he plans to practice what he preaches. Were going to give it a try, said the Rev. Ed Young, who has four children with his wife of 26 years. Young, 47, said he believes society promotes promiscuity and he wants to reclaim sex for married couples. Sex should be a nurturing, spiritual act that strengthens marriages, he said. God says sex should be between a married man and a woman, Young said. I think its one of the greatest things you can do for your kids because so goes the marriage, so goes the family. Young said he will deliver his seven-day sex challenge while sitting on a bed in front of his Dallas-area church campus. He is founder of the nondenominational Fellowship Church, which draws about 20,000 people each Sunday and also has campuses in Fort Worth, Plano and Miami. Earlier this year, a southwest Florida pastor, perhaps having more faith in his congregants stamina, issued a 30-day sex challenge. ~~~*~~~*~~~*~~~*~~~*~~~*~~~*~~~*~~~*~~~*~~~*~~~*~~~ Call me weird, but I think the church needs to stay out of everybodys bedroom.
