You'd think a talking book would be harmless
My husband loves to "read" talking books from the state library for the blind.

They send him a catalog every couple of months; and he selects the titles he wants. They let him have a couple at a time.

He just came out of his room, outraged. Apparently two of the best selling selections involve a woman having an affair with a man, and later, his son... another a widower who has an affair with a man.

End Times indeed.

Oh noes! Not books that have things I don't like in them!

End Times indeed.

So did this person think the books would be censored just because someone else was reading them?

Cheer up, though, Acts. Your username implies you should be happy to face such “persecution.”

"Apparently two of the best selling selections involve a woman having an affair with a man, and later, his son... another a widower who has an affair with a man."

If he's widowed, then that's not adultery, just fornication. /nitpick

People enjoy fictonal stories about things that are considered immoral. End Times indeed.

Oh no! Catalogues selling books of subjects/titles you don't like!

Come ON. I go to Barnes and Noble all the time knowing that they sell TWILIGHT, but you don't hear me bitching about it.

SHOCKING!!!! End of Times indeed.

There are even more horrible, more shocking stories around!

For example, two daughters having an affair with their own father!!! Or a man being forced to have an affair with his brothers' wife, but he prefers to ... masturbate (*gasp*) instead!!! Or a man giving his daughter to some strangers in full knowledge that they will gang-rape her!

In a book which sells very well, it is even one of the most best-selling books ever!

You can find these horrendous stories here:

a) Genesis 19:30-36
b) Genesis 38:8
c) Genesis 19:8 and Judges 19,22-30

"People enjoy fictonal stories about things that are considered immoral. End Times indeed."

Indeed. Might we suggest some choice passages from the Old Testament? Perhaps the one about the mauling of 42 youths by bears? (2 Kings 2:24) Or the one where God encourages cannibalism? (Ezekiel 24) Or perhaps the one where parents are told to beat their children for their own good? (Proverbs 22:15) Or Zecharia, where our all-good and all-loving Lord promises that all nations will wage war against Jerusalem, enslave its people and violate its women? (Zechariah 14:1-2)

Good Times indeed.

From the frozen north, Death cometh

Next thing you know they will pushing these immoral books (like The Count of Monte Cristo) in our schools! :O

End Times indeed.

as if adultery, fornication, and homosexuality haven't been around longer than your tattered little book. oh please.

also; "He just came out of his room" - I think this is pretty telling, are you sure he's your husband and not your roommate?

4/12/2011 4:21:50 AM


Along with what has already been said, why did he buy those stupid books in the first place?!

....unless he LIKES them & feels too guilty to admit it...like Jimmy Swaggart & prostitutes.

It's not like they don't give you a brief idea of the plot in the product description!!!

4/12/2011 4:34:04 AM


So, even hearing about an affair is a sin?

Go read about King Solomon and have your head asplode.

There are affairs in books, which has never happened before. End Times indeed.

I read this book one time that had a guy who's daughters got him drunk, and fucked him, so they could all start a tribe of people. Some people, who are of very low moral character themselves, love to brag how it's the best selling book of all time too.

4/12/2011 4:57:35 AM


*gasp* Next thing you know they'll have a book about a man that kills his father and marries his mother. They'll even give the character some nonsense futuristic name like Oedipus. THAT'S when we will know that the world is about to end and you should immediately get rid of all of your possessions and donate them to charity. You're not gonna need a flatscreen TV when Jesus hoovers you up into heaven.

dionysis beat me to it, but here it is anyway.

Oedipus. Now STFU!

Deep Search

I don't think a widower can have an affair, since their spouse is freaking dead. Yes, even if they start a homosexual relationship with a man. Not an affair.

And wtf? Why would a talking book be "harmless" compared to printed books? They're still the same freaking stories, they're just narrated versions.

Hah, later the poster says about the husband:
"he is used to R and X rated stuff for hetero... but not so much for the rest. It really is a sign of the times." Uh oh... So he likes his good old fashioned hetero, married smut? But affairs and gay relations are *pushing it too far.*

Oh, so the story was about Noah ...or the multiple wives of King David?

BAAAWWWW!!!!!!!!!!! Books that depict real life!!!!!!

Doubting Thomas

Huh???????? I mean, huh???? Yes, I really am that confused. A book about a woman having an affair with a man means the end times are here?

Better not read the bible, then.

And what kind of douche is outraged at the idea of people having sexual encounters? Oh yeah, a fundie Christian.

Zeus Almighty

Acts 5:41, Circa 850 BCE

You'd think that poetry would be harmless.
My husband loves to peruse the latest works of Homer.
He just came out of his room, outraged. Apparently Paris commits adultery with another man's wife. And in another soldiers capture a priestess as a sex slave for the king.

End times indeed.

4/12/2011 6:08:08 AM


Wait, what? If the spouse is dead then how is it an affair? I'm confused... but then again, fundyism can do that to people.

Audio Books are of the Devil!
If God wanted blind people to read, he would have given them functional eyes.

4/12/2011 6:24:33 AM


I'm sorry to learn that your husband is blind. But if he is also incapable to handle what goes on in real life, then his situation is indeed dire. And warn him strongly against getting anything by the Latin authors Juvenal and Suetonius. They might kill him.

Or is he just illiterate and cannot read?

Jubba the Mad

That is so fucking mental I think I just wet myself.

4/12/2011 7:19:13 AM


Oh no! Not people having an affair! Hell, it only happens a million times a day around the world, if not more, so it's hardly anything out of the ordinary.

And must you fools see the fucking End Times in every single thing?
