I was slightly disappointed by the cover and headline article for the September-October issue (“6 Rules for Shameless Sex,” by Keith Graber Miller). For a magazine and organization focused on “faith in action for social justice,” I fail to see how talking about the beauty of sexuality is about social justice.
We often complain about how sex is used in marketing. Sex sells. Yes, let’s speak out against that. Yet is it just me, or has Sojourners fallen into that very trap and used it as an attempt to grab attention in the bookstore—and hence to sell more copies?
