Part one of a two-part lecture by Joyce Salisbury, professor emerita of history and humanistic studies at the University of Wisconsin – Green Bay.

On July 24,2008, the Center for Inquiry / Transnational at Amherst New York presented Dr. Salisbury’s lecture “Human Sexuality: Sin, Crime, or Simple Humanity?” before an audience of adult learners at that summer’s Center for Inquiry Institute. Her lecture examines concepts of the human animal as an embodied creature, especially as viewed through the eyes of the Christian religion through its history.

The lecture included unscripted dialogue with members of the class. Because questions and student comments were spontaneous, it was not possible to record them. A brief silence in the program denotes a question that could not be heard.

If homosexuality is a sin and being gay isn’t a choice then God is evil because he created something just to damn it.

Hello. If the christian mythology is examined it seems that Dad was willing to let his only son be tortured to death. No surprize there then that he likes to play with his food.

Apparently God also promotes pedophilia. Why would He allow so many clergy so inclined have contact with young boys?
