However, I have pulled away from "The Church" as a whole.

I have made the mistake of trying to vocalize my revelations to my mother
, totally not worth it. I have to remind myself to just smile and nod
I highly recommend the book "Divine Sex: Liberating Sex from Religous Tradition". It is written by a retired pastor and the whole focus is to prove that most of the traditional church teachings about sex are NOT Biblical. It is very Biblically oriented I find it great to get validation for conclusions I came to on my own, but didn't have the "reference" to back it up.
