“I thought, princesses live in castles, and castles are big enough for all three of them, so why does she have to choose one?” He said. Throughout his life, Franklin – now 50 and living in Portland, Oregon – has never chosen one. In fact, he’s never had a monogamous relationship in his life, even while he was married for 18 years. “Monogamy has never connected with me, it’s never made sense to me,” said Franklin, who took two dates to his high school prom and lost his virginity in a threesome. Yet it wasn’t until the 1990s that he found the language to describe his lifestyle. Polyamory is the practice of intimate relationships involving more than two people with the consent of everyone involved.

“Portland is an amazing place if you’re poly, oh my god,” laughed Franklin, who is rarely seen without his bunny ears. Polyamory in the public eye.

Whistleblower: Catholics must work together to change church's mindset on homosexuality

Klaus Mertes, the German whistleblower who published letters he had received from pupils at a Jesuit school in Berlin who had been abused by teachers for years, has called on all Catholics, "both homosexuals and heterosexuals" to make greater efforts to get the church to change its "deficient" mind-set on homosexuality. "All of us [Catholics] -- homosexuals and heterosexuals -- must join together to get the church to give up its deficient mindset on homosexuality," Mertes said in an interview in the German daily Taz May 25.

"The reason why the Catholic church rejects homosexuality above all is because it [the church] combines sex with fertility, which means that the whole issue of sexual morality is connected with fertility. " A change of attitude was called for, he underlined. Sexual morality must be seen more from the standpoint of unselfish neighborly love "and not purely from a concept of nature which views the sexual act in isolation.

Polyamory (from Greek πολύ poly, "many, several", and Latin amor, "love") is typically the practice of, or desire for, intimate relationships where individuals may have more than one partner, with the knowledge and consent of all partners.[1] [2]It has been described as "consensual, ethical, and responsible non-monogamy".[3][4][5] However, the meaning of polyamory is also an issue of ongoing debate.[4] For example, although polyamory is typically defined as a relationship practice or approach to relationships,[1][2][6] some believe that it should also be considered an orientation or identity (analogous to sexual orientation or gender identity).[7][8] Polyamory is sometimes used in a broader sense, as an umbrella term that covers various forms of consensual multi-partner relationships, or forms of consensual non-exclusive sexual and/or romantic relationships.

What does St Paul say about homosexuality?

Paul homophobic? Some people come to that unfortunate conclusion when reading some of his writings about homosexuality such as Romans 1:24-27; 1Corinthians 6:9-10; and 1Tim 1:10. In particular, it must be noted that, in the Greco-Roman world of which Paul was a part, it was not uncommon for boys or young men to be kept for the purposes of prostitution. When Paul refers to “Sodomites” (1Cor 6:9), he is referring to those adults who used such boys for their own sexual indulgence.

Likewise, Paul’s references to these types of acts must be seen within his more general warnings against any kind of sexual promiscuity. Paul’s references to homosexual acts were not particularly controversial to early Christians who knew that the holiness code of Leviticus forbad homosexual acts (Leviticus 20:13).
