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.

"As Saint Paul observed, fornication tends toward death."

No. Just no. "Saint" Paul didn't know anything about medicine. He didn't know anything about psychiatry. He didn't know anything about sexually transmitted diseases or contraceptives or homosexuality--or sexuality in general--or drug abuse. His views were as primitive as everyone else's at the time. You, ma'am, are full of excrement.

Also, if the hypothesis (and I'm being generous in labelling it as such) that "fornication tends toward death" is a "natural law" like gravity, surely you'd be able to prove it scientifically?

I just love fornicating and am happy to go to hell doing it

12/28/2010 8:18:25 PM


Well, we shouldn't follow what Paul said either, apparently. You'll note he's just as dead.

I think it's safe to assume that Missouri gal does not look like this...

*Bobby Hill voice*

Fornicator! Fornicator!

You are shitting me, right? Everyone has sex before marriage and I do mean EVERYONE

"that is a natural law. Like gravity..."

Wait. I thought gravity was one of those evil theories that you dumb fucks rail against.

It just goes downhill from there.

Bad Wolf

Just a minor nit to pick with "Toothygrin": Syphillis did not exist in the old world during St Paul's day - it was brought back from the Americas by Columbus' crew. The first recorded cases of syph were in the ports that he came back to, just a few months after his return. Syph then swept across Europe killing thousands before H.Sap and the Sprochette evolved to co-exist with each other - to an extent - Syph will still kill, but usually not for decades after the original infection.

Umm, me thinks this gal has very little world experience.

Hey look. If you don't like it then don't do it, and leave the rest of us happy, content fornicators alone. Why do you want to ruin our fun?

12/28/2010 10:50:06 PM


LOL what?

The only reason consensual sex is "bad" is because you and yours are a bunch of prudes, half of whom are cheating on their spouses and, because they're sneaking around, are doing far more harm to society and the family than random single adults hooking up for a night of no-strings sex.

12/28/2010 11:20:36 PM


Where do they get their "facts" from. I seriously think they just make stuff up the way they want it to be.

This may be right but I'm not aware of any evidence to support it.

fornication tends toward death

-Driving cars tends toward death, let's all outlaw cars.
-Eating fast food tends toward death, let's outlaw fast food.
-It's a fact that living is the #1 cause of death with a 100% mortality rate, that's not an opinion but a natural law.

Sex Bomb, Sex Bomb
You're my Sex Bomb!

BTW, I thought money was the root of all evil

@ Rat of Steel: Thanks :-)
I don't have a head for scripture so I make frequent errors.

You could have just said "I've got a headache."

Godless heathen

So, in short, what you're saying is "sex is ok, so long as you don't enjoy it"

You've never voluntarily had sex in your life have you?

12/29/2010 1:11:07 AM


I wonder why I'm feeling a bit horny all of a sudden.

"BTW, I thought money was the root of all evil."

Not quite. It's the love of money that's the root of all evil, according to 1st Timothy, chapter 6, verse 10.

"When I made Adam and Eve naked, I wasn't trying to be cute. I just didn't want to create clothing. With clothes, there's right away pockets. With pockets, you gotta put something in 'em."
-- God, as portrayed by the late, great George Burns in Oh, God!

What was Pastor Ted Haggard doing?

And surely fundamentalist Christians do not have thier kids by immaculate conception?

And pray tell what is the difference between fornication and having multiple wives and concubines, for which the kings of Israel were famous? How many did Solomon have? And where in the Bible does it ban polygamy?

The absolutely brilliant non sequitur of drug abuse and embezzlement is mind-blowing; aalthough I suppose it would cost a lot to run a palace for one's harem. And certainly Solomon wasn't short of a shekel.

The last sentence of the posting might make more sense thus:

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

@ nutbunny
Isn't the love of money the root to all evil?

Fornication as in screwing around on your wife/husband - that is bad, but hardly deadly.
Fornication as in having consesual sex while not married - that harms no-one, as long as all involved are single or in open relationships.

How do you get from having sex out of wedlock to violence, drug abuse, STD's, suicide and drug abuse(sic)?

Don't like extra-marital sex; don't have any. Leave other people's lives alone.

12/29/2010 3:01:38 AM

The above list of misadventures have happened to EVERYBODY, whether they fornicate or not. Besides, we´re all going to die, isn´t it?

12/29/2010 3:01:51 AM

I think I speak for us all when I tell you to fornicate off.
