Money for sexuality study debated

Some readers say the study is necessary; others cite different priorities

Regarding "How long do we study sexuality?" (March, page 56), maybe we need to look in a wider context at the money we spend to study it. Perhaps there are more urgent priorities in our troubled times, and perhaps we should delay some of this research in favor of efforts to alleviate world suffering. To abandon it altogether would be to ignore the truly urgent and painful dilemmas that arise for many Christians over sexual issues. Extended ambiguity ... is understandably uncomfortable for many, but [it] appears to be our truth at this time. We should take the time we need to sort it out and get it right.
