Joe Beam is the poster boy for Dictionary.com's unabridged definition of heresy ...her - e - sy / Pronunciation [her-uh-see] -noun, plural -siesMSNBC brings us the news of another wolf in sheep's clothing, and his idea of "One preacher's message: [To h]ave hotter sex." Their America Unzipped piece goes on to tell us this retired Church of Christ preacher encourages Christian couples to practice cunnilingus and fellatio ... all in the name of Jesus!

He also advises Christians to use sex toys and erotic ointments in the marriage bed ... in order to open oneself up to the blessings of God. And he charges good U.S. dollars for them to hear him advise it!

I'm greatly offended by this man's theology and teaching; the audacity of him speaking as if he speaks for Scripture!

Ergo, Beam is both flush and free from guilt, all in one decision! "PTL, pass the Raspberry, will ya!"
