Intro, under-18 warning and re-direction to www.scarleteen.com
1:30-5:15 Listener mail
Eldyn Blackthorn mentioned PW in his audio blog here, which led minx to realize that the answer to poly questions is very often, “just the same as you would if you were monogamous.” Also, Brodie wrote in to let us know he posted a link to PW at Polymatcher.com forum. And a monogamous listener comments on Jacques Attali’s article on “Monogamy: Here Today, Gone Tomorrow.” Great points on the assumptions/tolerance issues!
5:15-37:35 Interview with MinofSin: Faith, ethics and polyamory
Is poly incompatible with Christianity?; sex, lust, love and masturbation; what does religion gain from calling polyamory unethical?; Paul’s sense of urgency; 15:40 what is the relationship between poly and spirituality?; how did we get from esoteric love in John to so many social restrictions?; embracing Jesus’ type of love; abundance and miracles; 25:00 adultery in monogamy and polyamory; evangelical monogamy vs. tolerant polyamory; more on adultery and religion; living for love.
