In a recent survey, more than 75% of clergy hadn’t addressed sex education in the pulpit in over two years. A startling statistic when much of the news deals with abstinence education, don’t ask don’t tell, same-sex marriage, and ongoing sex scandals of prominent figures in society. A new report issued by the Faithful Voices Network called “Sexuality and Religion 2020” puts forward ten goals to achieve in the next ten years, including more sexuality training for religious leaders in seminaries. Coming up, we’ll be joined by the executive director of the Religious institute, Reverend Debra Haffner, who is also a minister and a sexologist – as well as religious leaders and scholars – to discuss the new report.
