It's about time to tell some believers to F**K OFF!
« on: March 14, 2013, 10:28:09 AM »
This story is so frickin' ridiculous:

http://www.mediaite.com/online/family-research-council-we-should-punish-premarital-sex-we-never-gave-young-people-the-right-to-do-it/

This representative of his group universally claims that "we never gave young people the right" to have premarital sex.

Now if the dude wants to stand up and say to his parishioners in his church, and says so in a way that makes it clear that it applies only to his people, I can live with that. But to imply that "we" never gave "permission" to anyone on the planet to get laid before saying their vows, holy crap!

Our biology dictates when the sex is going to happen much more effectively than vows dictate. Granted, this at times causes innumerable problems, but to think that an edict from on low like this will change anything is like assuming that outlawing alcohol will go well. This is not how real issues are handled.

The gaul of the Family Research Council is overwhelming. First christians claim marriage as their own, then try framing their entire message around the concept of family, which they keep at a mythical level. The christian version of all of this is as mythical of their god.

Sorry, I'm just irked. The people agreeing with this stance are most likely also agreeing that we have a right to own guns. Lucky them. They have another way of getting off.

Jerks.

I'd prefer that folks like him continue to come forward and make it clear that they believe that they are the moral arbiters of America and that it irks them that they aren't allowed to shackle people as much as they'd like.  The more often people see the mask slip, the easier it becomes for them to realize just how dangerous religious fundamentalists can be if they're given sufficient support.

Oh, but that was YHWH, don't you know?  It's apparently only wrong if people do it.  *eyeroll*

Seriously, even when there were laws to prevent nonmarital sex, it still happened.  All.  The.  Time.  And not just with adolescents, either.

Some surveys reveal that a majority of couples who married in the post-war 1950's were either pregnant (and that's why they got married) or already having sex at the time of the wedding. So much for the idea that people in the past always abstained before the wedding night. &)

The entire concept of the nuclear two-parent family as the ideal is a recent invention, anyway. Even marriage is not quite as old or settled as many people think. Poor people have routinely lived together without formal ceremonies because there was no inherited property to pass on, so virginity and paternity were not as important. In the past, children were often raised communally, family was defined through the matrilineal side, and the mother's brother might be the main dude in the kid's life.

That's why this religious intrusion into where, how and with whom people live, and whether, when, and with whom they have sex, is so offensive. They devise rules and policies based on made-up, imaginary sh!t, and then try to force people to conform to their fabricated version of the world. If a majority of people won't or can't follow your social rules, maybe you have screwed-up rules.

They have been given the right:

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness."

It always makes me happy...

The Christian right is moving more and more towards the Tailban each day.  This probably has to do with birth control available with Obamacare.  So much for getting the gov out of your life.  And I agree...the need to hear Fu*k Off more often and made fun of quite often.

Well, I bet that guy never read about David and Bathsheba and their goings on. Nor has he heard about all the children father by RC priests since celibacy was the rule. Heck, maybe none of it matters as long as he is in charge and he gets what he wants - maybe from his mistress?

You know, I kind of get gleeful and giddy when I hear the religious right spew that brand of foolishness.  I mean, they are really not going to win the hearts and minds of today's youth by suggesting that we "punish, corral and shame" sexually active young people. 

Keep it up guys.  Good job.

Preach it brother PP!  It is healthy to let off steam when it builds up.

In some cultures, the couple gets into the marriage bed and goes under a blanket right in front of the wedding guests. Can wait too long to start making that baby.  :P

These idiots really need to get over themselves.

In the middle ages amongst the peasant class it was not uncommon for the betrothed to wait to get knocked up before getting marriage.  The groom wanted to be sure his potential bride was actually fertile and vice versa.  At least, so I have read.
