Quote# 78343

Fornication is the diametric opposite of marriage. As Saint Paul observed, fornication tends toward death. That is not opinion, that is a natural law. Like gravity, it applies whether one believes it or not. Fornication destroys the person who practices it, and spreads its destruction to those close to the fornicator; the partners, the children, the parents and siblings, and to the rest of society. Fornicators not only live shorter lives (from violence, drug abuse, STD’s, suicide, other risk-taking behaviors such as drug abuse), but fortunately for the rest of us, they also have shorter careers, either because they get into legal troubles (such as embezzlement), or because their health or psychiatric problems force them out of their positions. Unfortunately for all of us, the social destruction of fornication can completely wipe out a nation.

Fornication is fun.

Doesn't everything technically lead toward death?

Strange, I've been an extremely avid fornicator for many years and I've been nothing but successful in both my business and my personal relationships. Enjoy your life of cold, sterile piety.

Um, considering the MOST of the world's population, including Christians, fornicates, I call bullshit.

In the days of the goatherders that St. Paul "observed," people regularly met with death due to even the silliest of diseases. Gonhorrea could kill. Syphilus would definitely kill. And NO ONE KNEW THE REASONS. Viruses and bacteria were not even conceived of. Thus, it makes sense in a Bronze-Age world, what you're saying.

Welcome to the fucking 21st Century, where diseases are cured, bacteria is known about, and people are safer having sex because of it... Well, that is, with proper sex education, which you idiots try to prevent.

So yeah.. I guess, in your world -- that of the 1st Century -- you'd be right.

So xtians do not fornicate, is that what you are saying? So where do all their kiddies come then?

I call bullshit for Jebus.

Worth pointing out that regardless of your personal views, fornication is about the most harmless vice politicians get up to.

So tolerable.

You morons always make like your worthless opinions are natural law. They're not.
Fornication, or as we prefer to call it, sex for pleasure, is only a sin to you sanctimonious twits. We don't care. We don't see the Bible as anything but a collection of Bronze Age rules mixed with a lot of fairy stories and myths.
Paul was an asexual asshole who believed that women were garbage and men should stay well clear of them. I'm surprised that women still buy into any patriarchal religions like Christianity and Islam.

People above seem to be missing the point that fornication, in this context, is specifically sex outside of marriage. Its still utterly utterly mad, of course, but lets at least mock Missouri Gal for the right reasons, kay?

12/28/2010 4:09:28 PM

Violence, drug abuse, STD's, suicide, and drug abuse. That's an excellent and detailed list.

So...um, Missouri gal...I'm guessing you're a virgin. I say this with complete and utter seriousness and sincerity: You need to get laid.

12/28/2010 4:11:14 PM


Don't knock it til you've tried it, sister.

As of 2007, 40% of American babies are born to unmarried parents. The states with the highest percentage are (hint, not the blue states.)

The Scandinavian countries have the highest % of out-of-wedlock births. Note how well they're doing.

STDs I can see as a consequence of "fornication" (if you're a dumb fundie who doesn't take precautions), but the rest - violence, drug abuse, suicide, embezzlement? How are these remotely connected? Or is "Missouri gal" just into some far kinkier shit than I am?

"That is not opinion, that is a natural law."

Sorry to disappoint hon, but the universe doesn't care if people having sex have been through a meaningless ceremony any more than gravity cares whether or not someone stepping off a cliff has a pilot's license.

"Unfortunately for all of us, the social destruction of fornication can completely wipe out a nation."

Unintentional honesty award?
It is true, you know. Well known phenomenon. The process is called depopulation or "White plague". For many social reasons (mostly it requiring too much time/money to raise a child) couples choose to have less than required 2,5 children needed to naturally replenish population. Mortality rates take over and if the process is not reversed or fresh blood is pumped in via imigration, in the long run nation goes extinct. I don't think its intended message here, though. State sponsored "Fornicate for your nation!" is the slogan I could stand behind.

Then again, there's quiverful movement *winces*.

So, would a blowjob be out of the question?

As Saint Paul observed, fornication tends toward death. That is not opinion, that is a natural law.

Paul was a sexually dysfunctional misogynist who didn't like the idea of anyone having sex. Natural law says the more you screw, the more offspring you have - so, no, it doesn't lead to death, it leads to more descendants.

12/28/2010 6:42:04 PM


You do know that Paul The Apostle, who became 'Saint Paul" hated women, and was more than likely a tightly closeted homosexual? So of course he was going to decry sexual activity since he couldn't get any, seeing as by the Old Testament Rules, he would have been put to death.

12/28/2010 6:46:47 PM


You really must wonder about the little world fundtards live in. I picture it sort of as a massive D&D game gone horribly wrong. Hiw many fundyquests must the brave Christian warrior complete to get his level 5 spiritual armor? Or how many nonfundies must he annoy to become a level 10 Darwin Denialist?

So sex now causes cocaine and grand larceny.

Let's here you explain this in a little more detail here.

Those sound like testable predictions, so I trust that you can produce the data to back them up. Oh, but ... all together now ... you shall not put the Lord your God to the test.
