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.

You realize that those books are available in nontalking, print format, right? Right?! They've been around for much longer than you've even been alive.

The world doesn't revolve around you, jackass.

Oh my......how can you possibly go on with your delicate sensibilities ripped to shreds. Perhaps you should invest in a comfortable fainting couch.

So you expect the library to censor their selection just for your husband? You and your husband need to grow the fuck up.

A wife with a seperate room from her husband?

End times indeed.

I've seen a couple comments that suggest that the husband and wife have separate rooms and I don't think that's the case here (though it's certainly possible). Rather, I think the wife saying "his room" is in line with the fundie idea that that the man is the head of the household and thus everything belongs to him (including the wife). Thus "his room" is actually their room but she doesn't want to piss off Jesus for having the nerve to think that men and women can be equal partners in marriage with equal ownership. Again, I could be wrong but even the most repressed couple I've ever heard of only had separate beds and I have yet to see anyone have separate rooms. But as they say, there's a first time for everything.

There is a novel that deals with two grown men involved in a love triangle with a 16-year-old boy. It also features male prostitutes, drunkenness, gluttony, and witchcraft.

Its title is The Satyricon.

It was written around 60 AD.

"End Times," indeed.

If you think that's bad, try reading the Bible.

>> He just came out of his room, wadded up Kleenexes all over the floor, breathing heaviily, flexing his right hand, and boy, was he excited uh ... outraged he said, yeah, that works. Outraged. That's the ticket.
(@ Deep Search) 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.

Yeah, see? What did I tell you?_____ Ph. McA.

A wife with a seperate room from her husband?

My uncle Chuck has his garage fixed up with a heavy metal security door and sound proofing so he can escape my crazy aunt. It works for him.
BTW, his garage library just happens to contain every Playboy issue from day one. I bet Uncle Chuck gets a lot of studying done with all those articles.

So a book with a plot you don't like and it is the end times? How many times is it going to end then?

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.
The Bible?

They're just stories, like the ones in the bible.

4/12/2011 10:00:33 AM

So because your husband got two books that had content he didn't like that signifies the end times?

4/12/2011 11:03:40 AM


Let me get this straight:

A woman having an affair with a man and his bisexual son = zOMG end times!

Lot getting drunk having sex with his two virgin daughters = Good and righteous in God's eyes


Oh, wait -- it's in the Bible. It doesn't have to make sense!

4/12/2011 11:10:42 AM


End times my freckled arse

4/12/2011 11:18:01 AM


End times? I don't think so idiot!

You need to bone up on your histrionics Acts5.41. Whereas in some of your old comments you came across as a big girls blouse, you only manage to seem a rather mundane Bible ninny specializing in wannabe naked and magical aviation aerobatics. By the way, since I feel free to criticize you, it's only fair that you criticize me too. Are you able to interpret this as persecution? Would you prefer stronger criticism? Could you use more so-called persecution from me? Anyway, thanks for the laughs you moronic clod.

Oh fuck off. Read your bible and in the first book one lad kills his brother and it is pretty mmuch downhill from there.

Just because you see or read something that you didn't know existed because you grew up in the protective bubble of homeschooling or fundie parenting does not mean it's new.

4/12/2011 12:27:40 PM


Obviously the two of you never read your own bible. There are far worse things in there than that.

4/12/2011 12:35:30 PM


It is harmless, where is the harm? The only thing the book on tape apparently caused was your mild annoyance, hell if anything it helped you, it gave you another reason to spout off about your death cult bullshit.

4/12/2011 12:40:10 PM


You'd think a talking book would be harmless

Many christians believe their bible talks to them

End times indeed.

4/12/2011 12:43:06 PM


Is it worth trying to explain how there's been shit in books that makes that look like a polite afternoon tea since, well, since they invented books?

4/12/2011 1:07:03 PM


LOL sex.

Does that make you uncomfortable?



Get over it pussy. What are you? 12? Still afraid of cooties?
