    Glad to hear. Unfortunately, however, for too many it has quite a bit of pull.

    futureman,

    I’m in my forties.

    Agent_Decoy,

    I’ve seen too many cases to convince me otherwise. I’ll have to respectfully disagree with you.

    futureman and FishingWithKittens,

    Porn is an addiction that destroys real relationships for far too many. This isn’t about appreciating the beauty of the human body, or about being naturally more visually stimulated. People get desensitized to the real, and end up living in fantasies. They end up neglecting those aspects of their lives that can be just as beautiful.

    Also, this addiction, just like drugs, ends up requiring more and more intense and explicit images to have the same effect. Most people who start looking at porn never think they are going to eventually become someone who could be tempted to hurt women, children, and animals. The addiction has a mind of its own.

    Disclosure: I’m not a hypocrite. I don’t look at porn, and I don’t think I’m the only one. Real is better.

    While I’m not prepared to take this study completely at face value, this is still not flattering for those who profess to be Christians. In the aggregate, a group that follows Christ should have less of this behavior, not more. Those who profess to be Christians who are casual about their departure from the law of God on this matter, cheapen and denigrate the Gospel plan they claim to follow.

    Oh and by the way, Evangelicals, don’t give me the “not perfect, just forgiven” boloney. (No, I don’t think that Evangelicals alone are the reason for this statistic.) You too have a responsibility to turn away from the lusts of your eyes and channel your energies towards more worthy pursuits. You will be happier and enjoy greater blessings in your life if you do. The Lord will help you if you are willing to be humble before Him.

    Could you imagine how quickly the attention of some porn-addicted men might pivot, if another married man who knows how to treat real women can now compete with him?

    I believe in Him too. I never said that Christianity would be destroyed. I’m only suggesting that for Christianity to fail in its progress, it requires an inside job. Christians are on top of their game when they are encountering persecution, and existential threats from the outside. It is the extended years of prosperity and ease that lull them to sleep and cause them to forget God. In the long term, true Christianity will prevail. The Lord has spoken it.

    Even with all the assaults against it, Christianity can only be destroyed from within.

    I suppose hell would be better than being with that type of god.

    Imagine being Muslim and knowing that the only reason you are is because your ancestors or you were converted under duress. How would that be to remember the day of your conversion to Islam as the day that your mother was raped, or that your father was tortured to death? What a joke.

    Spqr1, certainly our vast ignorance is simple enough for you to explain it. Don’t be shy.

  • August 4, 2014 at 6:22pm

    Spqr, of course you are not my teacher, but since your attitude tells me that you like to pretend you are, then by all means have at it. Please tell me one thing that would change my understanding of things that has not been brought up. Just one thing. Don’t worry, I am sure I can keep up.

  • August 4, 2014 at 5:50pm

    By all means, tell us what “none of you have a clue about” that would change the equation. Quit insulting people’s intelligence and put up what you got. THAT…I can respect.

    Why were the doctors over wearing HAZMAT gear rather than their normal protection? Look, as long as the virus is isolated, we can stop it. That is why we should keep it contained until it has either run its course or a cure has been found. Those who come to this country from areas where the virus is active need to be screened before they enter the USA. It is just common sense. Bringing people to this country with an incurable disease that is as deadly as Ebola does nothing to help the poor souls who have already contracted the disease in Africa. AIDS was different because it crossed the pond without us knowing it. In this case, we know where it is and we have the capacity to isolate it. If you know you can contain it through simple means and don’t, then I find that reckless and immoral.

    Is it stupid for me to question whether a nameless faceless poster who seems to fancy himself as the king of smart and who looks down his nose on anyone who posts on this site is worth listening to?

    Look, I can handle a differing opinion, but I have no patience with people on this site who do nothing more than wax sanctimonious about their own pretended intelligence, who will not let their own ideas compete in the field of ideas, but instead call everybody an idiot (except themselves of course).

    That is why I responded as I did.

  • [1] August 4, 2014 at 4:25pm

    What reasons can you give me that you are any smarter than the dumbest to post on this site?

    Maybe we should set up a quarantine unit in the embassy or consulate and require a full 21 days in quarantine before any Americans may return. That way, we don’t allow it to cross the pond any more, as well as allow those who are cleared to reenter the country.

  • [4] August 4, 2014 at 4:12pm

    Why were the doctors over there wearing HAZMAT suits then?

  • August 1, 2014 at 10:31am

    You’re right. The Palestinians are WILLFUL pawns. They are definitely not victims in this.

    Crazy Travis,

    While I suppose there are occasionally some people who can “handle it” in moderation, to make that discovery requires that you play a game of Russian Roulette. The truth is, everyone starts thinking they can handle it.

    Being proud of your moderation comes across to me the same as if you were to brag about how close to the edge of a cliff you can get without falling off.
