Each week the Orlando Sentinel asks two questions of 100 community leaders in Central Florida. Those with access to the online Sentinel can read all of this week’s 100-word responses here. For those without access, my responses are below. Selected responses appear in the Sunday edition while the on-line comments are available a day or two before. My piece was chosen to appear in print this week.
What was the biggest story of the week?
A Muslim, a Hindu, a Buddhism scholar, a rabbi, an evangelical Christian pastor, and a Unitarian Universalist minister… walked into a room to talk about sex. It was part of Sex Week at UCF. They spoke for five minutes each about their faith traditions before addressing an impressive array of questions from students. The vision of the week was “to create a sex-positive culture and atmosphere … to embrace and celebrate human sexuality and diversity in all its forms.” While open and honest about their differences, there was strong agreement regarding the importance of responsibility, respect, and acceptance.
What will be the biggest story in the coming week?
The series focuses on state and local news.
