Are You a Secular Sexual?

Hre is my 25 min. talk at the convention on The Shame of Believing or Why Do We Act Like Christians? I suggest that we should rethink our sexuality as secular sexuals. Take a look and let me know how this idea feels to you.

Dallas - Collin college and SMU

Off to Dallas today to speak at Collin College on "Genes in Your Jeans: How much is our sexuality governed by genetics and how does that related to the way religion's try to program us?"
