The Bible backs same-sex couples: Point by point, why the haters are wrong If the essence of marriage involves a covenant-keeping relationship of mutual self-giving, then two men or two women can fulfill that purpose as well as a man and a woman can. But is lifelong commitment between two adults sufficient for realizing a Christian basis for marriage? Or is there something unique about heterosexual relationships that prevents same-sex couples from truly illustrating Christ’s love for the church? The first response one might make based on Ephesians 5 is that same-sex unions are necessarily excluded from a Christian basis for marriage because Scripture uses only heterosexual language when describing it. But given the widespread association of same-sex behavior with lustful excess in the ancient world, it isn’t surprising that the biblical writers didn’t contemplate the possibility of same-sex marriage. Our question isn’t whether the Bible addresses the modern concepts of sexual orientation and same-sex marriage. So, too, eunuchs now have reason to rejoice.

99 The Psychology of Sexuality Sexuality is part of what makes us human. Naturally, its fundamental function is to propagate the species. But clearly, sex goes far beyond the powerful evolutionary instinct to procreate. Sex is also about sensual pleasure. Enjoyment. Ecstasy is not only a physical, but a psychological and sometimes spiritual experience. Sex, like romantic love, is a constant reminder of our irrationality, and its sway over our hard-won rationality. At some deeper level, sexuality is intimately linked with mortality. Of course, sex can be separated from eros, from love and caring, in which case, it becomes banal and mechanical. Sexual energy is a primary part of what motivates us to enter into intimate interpersonal relationships, sometimes despite the fact that, practically speaking, such a relationship may be quite impossible and ultimately frustrating. Sexuality is inherently different for women and men. In Western culture, sex may no longer be the biggest taboo for psychotherapy patients.

How to Sync Outlook and Google Apps Business users have gotten used to Outlook. The email client for the more than one billion Microsoft Office users on the planet has become second nature. But some companies are finding that it saves them money and maintenance to let Google host their email, calendars, and contacts, even though this means a third party will have access to email contents and targeted display ads appear in the inbox. Thankfully, Google Apps Sync for Microsoft Outlook lets you take advantage of most of Outlook's tools—but only for Outlook 2010 so far. If you can live with those limitations and your company has made the move to Google Apps, then using Outlook with your new communication service is a simple matter of installing and running Apps Sync. Once you've downloaded the utility, make sure Outlook is not running, and then hit the Download Google Apps Sync button—it will install the software automatically after you OK a User Account Control dialog. Next, click the Create profile button.
