Pastor's call for week of "congregational copulation" draws coverage

Grapevine, Texas, pastor Ed Young called his married congregants to have sex each night for a week, in a story covered by The New York Times, England's The Daily Mail , Canada's Toronto Globe and Mail Australia's and others.

The way the stories were covered is interesting - some chose an analytical approach, interviewing sex therapists about whether the challenge would make a lasting difference. Another chose to interview other pastors to see if it would fly in their congregations.

Apparently, singles who attend Young's Fellowship Church were encouraged to eat chocolate and to ask God to send them a spouse.
