On Monday’s show, KDKA Radio’s Mike Pintek talked with Jennifer Wright Knust, the Author of “Unprotected Texts: The Bible’s Surprising Contradictions about Sex and Desire.”

“I don’t think we can look to the Bible to provide our contemporary sexual morals or our U.S. law regarding marriage,” Knust, who is also an assistant professor of religion at Boston University and a pastor of the American Baptist Church, said on the show.
