Quote# 52470

I have been married to a man for over 25 years that is constantly critical of me and verbally abusive. We cannot have a discussion about anything without him flinging personal attacks or belittling my thinking processes etc. My husband is not saved and the enemy uses his tongue as a weapon, this is a spiritual battle not flesh and blood. Jesus is my warrior and my Defender and even though my husbands critical and negative words continue to hurt me I go to Jesus and He helps me. Until Jesus decides to do something different in the situation I will obey Him none the less. He never fails to bless me in ways that enable me press on.

This is more sad than fundie.

I agree...this is the kind of thing religion is good for...helping depressed people get through ("Religion Therapy")

I don't know how sad this really is. Possibly her husband is a jerk who puts her down all the time no matter what. Possibly the only thing she ever wants to talk about is the fact that he needs to Jesus himself up and he gets quickly sick of it. Don't know. I'm for "Meh" just in case this is a genuine sad story.

I don't care what your church thinks about the idea, but I suggest you divorce this jerk as soon as possible.

Another happy life in the name of jeebus.

In the same breath she voted to make gay people second class citizens.


No sympathy from me.

Divorce him. But the Bible says you shouldn't. Seems to me like you're fucked.

11/18/2008 3:07:48 AM


Why put up with someone who is mean to you? How is thinking about Jesus going to fix your marriage? Let's see here...miserable life or divorce? Divorce wins.

Instead of praying to Jesus, stand up for yourself. If your husband continues to be a jerk after that, show him the door until he decides treat you right.

While, it is nice that you have faith and all that...you should really leave the asshole. I don't think He would aprove of this caveman who has mated with you.

Allegory for Jesus

Your husband may be mean to you, but, judging from your self-righteous cries of persecution...I'm not really sure if I should blame him for it...

Enabling your asshole husband makes baby Jesus cry.

Sheds a bit of light, I think. Happy people don't generally go around trying to steal others' happiness, but unhappy people sometimes do their best to drag others down with them.

Your husband sounds like a dick, but it might just be triggered by, I would guess, you bothering him about being unsaved.

Sadist and masochist: the perfect couple.

That thread...it...uh...

since WHEN was Jesus a pimp, exactly?

This woman will never do what she needs to do and DTMFA. I'm torn between thinking she deserves it for being so obstinately submissive and pitying her for the obvious Stockholm syndrome.

Its possible your husband is a jerk. Get counseling, Jesus aint going to do jack.

11/18/2008 4:16:40 AM


No wonder she's such a bitch when she gets online.

11/18/2008 4:32:33 AM


[Until Jesus decides to do something different in the situation... ]

Jesus isn't the one that needs to do something diffrent about the relationship. You are. Get a marraige consular or something.

Even for RR, I find this sad because she choses to stay in an abusive relationship with her husband.

11/18/2008 4:46:25 AM


I suppose this is one of those 'god sanctioned 'marriages
Prop 8 is protecting?

11/18/2008 5:30:36 AM


Fundamentalism: When you can admit you're being abused and still proclaim to the world how lucky, happy, and Blessedâ„¢ you are.

11/18/2008 5:43:56 AM


Just sad.

11/18/2008 5:52:36 AM


But God wants you to suffer!
