Quote# 7449

If you are a Christian woman, there should be some degree of modesty, the same as if you are a Christian man. You would not want to cause another to stumble. What if you are a Christian woman, you're proud of your body, and wear a skimpy bikini to the beach. And a young Christian (young as in he just came to Christ) sees you and goes home and masterbates, thinking about you in that skimpy bikini. Have you caused him to sin? Perhaps you did not participate directly in his sin, i.e. you were not there actually having intercourse with him. But the picture in his mind is of you in that bikini. And as a result of his self sexual gratification he stumbles and loses his faith because he thought God had delivered him from his sin, now he feels shame, remorse, guilt, and he feels like a pervert. So he leaves the church. How can he go to the same church with you after what he has done?

He left the church. That's a great thing! Now stop blaming the victim. Men have an uncanny ability to undress women with their eyes so bikini or not, it makes no difference.

I totally get off to nuns.

Do you think that might be a problem?

He only feels guilty because you drilled it into his head that something perfectly natural is actually evil. Jeez.

WTF? You aren't allowed to wear a bathing suit to the beach anymore?
Projecting much?

I have a feeling somebody's looking forward to summer...

I just got wood reading this and thinking about the chick in the bikini. Does that mean you are a sinner because I am flogging it right now?

How can he go to the same church with you after what he has done?

For all you know he might start coming to church more often because the hot bikini chick is there.

I'd be flattered if I knew a young, nubile fundie guy masturbated to a thought of me in a bikini.

Or am I just a creep?

What if he saw a godless heathen wearing a bikini? Is it okay to masturbate to that image?

Is it just me, or does this man sound like he'd be a rape apologist as well?

It's inevitable that sooner or later, he's going to notice that Christianity's claims about morality, including this one, are false. Whether he 'loses his faith' or not depends on whether he's developed a tolerance for cognitive dissonance and the ability to compartmentalize.

Big Chicken Dinner

Or maybe he keeps going to that church, and all the prayer meetings, get togethers, etc. to keep getting a look at that cooter.

Maybe Jesus made that woman's pussy so spectacular so that he could bring perverts to Him! You ever thought of that?

3/2/2008 8:47:42 PM


And the religion is the thing that MAKES him feel the "shame, remorse, guilt, & perversion" that drives him away from the church. Therefore, the church is an abomination unto itself.

Oh no! Not TEH BODY!

amazing to build an entire edifice on such a puff!!

however, the fundies have been doing so since forever, so why am I surprised

Or, just maybe, one should take responsibilty for one's actions and have some fuckin' self-control if it's a "sin".

4/5/2008 3:03:35 AM

He can get over it. Lots of guys do.

4/5/2008 8:23:48 PM


and how would you feel if you made really good pie, and some young christian got a really big peice and selfishly ate it all in one go. and then because of his gluttonous gratification he stumbles and loses his faith because he thought God had delivered him from his sin.........

4/5/2008 10:19:51 PM


Keep going. He leaves the church and his parents get mad, they take the lord's name in vain, now they have sinned too.

Thanks the one bikini 3 people are now sinners! I hope you're happy.

So, you just listed the exact same reason that Islamic extremist used to keep women in full head-to-toe covering.
