This isn’t just about the movie, but pornograpy in general, and the danger it is to individuals and their families. It destroyed my first marriage because my ex was in denial and becoming increasingly dangerous, hostile, and aggressive in his split-world realities – I no longer knew the man I was married to. His split world had finally converged into just one – anger to cover the lying, abuse to cover the anger and keep us under control. I managed to get me and the kids to a shelter, and he hasn’t seen them since we left (with court backing). Now tell me how it only affects the person who watches porn.
I pray for you and your family that God grants you special grace to face the outfall of this disaster. I also pray for your ex that he come to realize he is nothing but a pawn to the evil one and that he be cured of this disease. God Bless you.

@ModerateRepub – you’ve obviously never lived in Switzerland. They don’t have universal health care. They’re not part of the the EU. They have mandatory private care. Each person is required by law to be insured, but insurance is private. Employers do not provide insurance. It is completely up to each resident which company to use. But you can’t do anything, including move from one house to another, in Switzerland without proof of health insurance. Our insurance was about $600/month for a family of five with a $5’000 deductible. And I still had to share a room with two other women after giving birth, as well as a single bathroom with seven other women. Trust me… NO UNIVERSAL HEALTH CARE IN SWITZERLAND!!!

It’s not just a matter of dying with dignity, or dying to avoid our own suffering. We do have a purpose in life until our dying breath, even if that means others have to take care of us. How much do we, as family, change for the better by serving our loved ones til God takes them home? It’s not just about “woe is me.” God wants us to serve others in their times of need.
You are so right!! We do not have the right to take someone else's life. (or our own for that matter)
What you said only makes sense in a context where the individual is not being kept alive by artificial means. Because at that point it is false to claim it is God's will. And that is not a question of beliefs or faith. That is a FACT that cannot be argued.

Actually, the one word that absolutely makes my skin crawl whenever I hear it on the news – ever since Bill Clinton took us through his media circus – is “unprecedented.” Drives me NUTS!!!

In Europe people it horse meat all the time. You can buy it in the grocery store. They swear by it for making the your bone marrow and joints healthier.

The product, yes. The title for this article, no. The word “slick” combined with “port-a-potty” did not bring the same picture into my mind as these impressive outhouses.

Then explain this: “11 And the Lord spake unto Moses face to face, as a man speaketh unto his friend…” (Exodus 33:11)
“And upon the nobles of the children of Israel he laid not his hand: also they saw God, and did eat and drink.” (Exodus 24:11)
“30 And Jacob called the name of the place Peniel: for I have seen God face to face, and my life is preserved.” (Genesis 32:30)
“22 And Manoah said unto his wife, We shall surely die, because we have seen God.” (Judges 13:22) – Samson’s parents, by the way.
There’s a whole list in the Bible of people who have seen God and lived. Perhaps you should take the translation – no man hath seen God at any time “in the flesh”
You seem to know the scriptures – remember the mount of transfiguration? Peter, James and John saw Jesus transfigured, Moses and Elias, AND heard the voice of God testify that Jesus was His son, and they lived. (Matt 17:1-9) But they were transfigured in order to do so. Hence, the name Mount Transfiguration.

Just lost my health insurance. It’s not even offered for me AT ALL anymore. If I want a plan with a similar premium – with a totally different company because mine isn’t offered to me anymore, I have to have an $11,000 deductible!!! I’m SO glad Obama is in control!

My ex-husband says the same thing – except that he was pro-Hitler.

Exactly – I’ll believe it when I hear it, and even doubtfully then, as the media re-arranged the words recorded with Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman.
Bingo! I just wrote a comedy screenplay on this topic. It's so easy to do.
Tom, make some real news, tell us what he said! Not some made up off the record statements about an off the record statements.
Not just ha said bad stuff about Obama, what did he say because what you think is bad and what I think is bad is about 180 degrees.
By the way I bet he does not pay for 2 seats but eats for four.
Whatever he said is now "Classified Information", when did free speech become illegal? Eight years of these same A-Holes beating up on G.W. like it was a new global sport, no problem, but say ANYTHING negative about B.O. and not even your union will save you, FIRED!

In Utah, the residents here knew about it before 2009. However, I don’t think they knew exactly what it was for. They knew they would need hundreds of employees to translate lots of different languages, which, I think, is why they built it there – so many returned LDS missionaries who speak so many different languages fluently concentrated in one area.

Anyone who’s been in an abusive situation sees this right away for what it is. He has clearly baited her the whole marriage – he takes pleasure in it. She probably doesn’t know he’s been emotionally and verbally abusing her – control is a hard one to see when you’re the one being controlled. He sounds just like my soon-to-be ex, not that I ever threw a tempter tantrum like that. But there were certainly times when he’d promised something we’d been counting on, and suddenly changed his mind, even denied that’s what he said in the first place. When a husband does that often enough, it’s enough for the wife to want to somehow try to knock some memory into him – any way she can – including this kind of meltdown.

I don’t care what you think you’re singing about, there’s music that heals, and there’s music that abuses. You can sing the lyrics to “O Divine Redeemer” to this music and it will never have the power to heal or bring people to understand Christ’s love. This music will only beat up your soul until there’s nothing left but darkness.
Well put "This music will only beat up your soul until there’s nothing left but darkness.' Anyone who knows anything about popular music knows that what it hinges on the industry refers to as "THE HOOK" - that is the thing that gets in between your ears and has you singing it to yourself, hearing it in your head long after the music stops and years later when you hear that song - those words it shifts your emotional state, shifts the atmosphere, you find yourself singing along even if now you don't particularly like the words - That is for people who have made a conscious effort to remove all secular influences from their lives and still even seeking to live a holy, set apart, consecrated life that music will stir to life your "old man" your flesh that Christianity demands you crucify.
But now we have a Christianity where they don't want to crucify the flesh - they are happy for their "get out of hell free" card - seeing the crucifixion of Yeshua - Jesus Christ as a device that allows them to continue in sin but assuring themselves that there are no eternal consequences anymore - we are under grace and there is no condemnation for those in Christ. But Heb 12:8 tells us what God Almighty thinks about correction "But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons."
letjoy - respectfully, I say RUBBISH. Rock music may do nothing for you, but that doesn't mean it doesn't do something for others, especially with a Christian message. I get great benefit from many Christian rock songs, finding them uplifting, challenging, convicting - across the spectrum.
Anointed - perhaps the flesh that needs to be crucified in this case is yours. It's your flesh that has a problem with this music - it's certainly not spiritual. There's no spiritual support for the concept that one type of music is better or worse than any other.

that would be people – in – helicopters

My favorite anti-fun law I heard on the radio when we lived in Europe. The Netherlands had just started a new program to make sure evil earth-haters and global-warming deniers weren’t out barbecuing in the summer, adding to the already dire problem of our dying planet. They decided it’d be a good idea to send up people helicopters with heat-viewing goggles to identify and then penalize those who betrayed this desperate time. And what’s worse? A few burgers on the grill, or a few helicopters up in the air flying around an entire country to make sure no one barbecues? Pure logic.
Cavallo – I know fascism, socialism, communism… they are all related and bound together. In Germany, however, they seriously believe conservatism IS nazi-ism, and so the conservative parties are shunned, black-balled, taken to court for ANY tiny detail, homes are raided, property taken and never returned, innocent people are taken to court again and again and again – all just to prove that MAYBE someone in this party has done something illegal. And then drain them of all their funds to continue their work in the process. If you believe health care is not a human right, then you need to have your brain checked. If you believe you have a right to voice your conservative opinion, you’ll soon find yourself behind bars – for something. I have seen this affect many lives, and political parties destroyed because of it.

Apparently you’ve never LIVED in Germany the past few years. I have. Angela Merkel is supposed to be the leader of the more conservative party – at least as conservative as Germany will allow without applying a Nazi stigma to it. Merkel is more socialist than Hillary Clinton. It’s not just Merkel, socialism is so integrated into day-to-day life that people are shocked when someone else thinks otherwise. Trust me – Germany is NOT as free as you think. In fact, they have to be told they have freedoms. We passed billboards advertising “I have freedom of speech.” But they don’t.

Thank you for saying that! It was driving me nuts! Who edits these things?

I had the misfortune to watch the compilation of the top 10. I thought that way I’d get a well-rounded idea of what’s going on. Blaze… Really… If you’re going to recommend your readers watch something, PLEASE let it be something that doesn’t make us sick to our stomachs! I feel like I need to wash my eyes out with soap.
