Execute Josh Duggar!

Well obviously it's only rape if a child is conceived, didn't you read his position statement? There's no mention of sexual contact that doesn't result in pregnancy being rape

e: also notice that only if the life of the mother and child are threatened is abortion deemed acceptable. I guess if mom is going to die but the baby has a sliver of chance of survival it's just God's will, sorry mom.

even if lena dunham had been 18 when she molested her sister and every single person in the mainstream media and every liberal had come out to defend her i still don't know how gross you have to be to say "LIBERALS DID IT TOO" in defense of your team when somebody molests children

FWIW there really isn't any defending child rape (especially when you have years of being on the record stating rapists should all be executed), and "but both sides do it" is really the only card the right has to play anymore.

:bigtran: Josh, go read the kids their Bible story while your daddy and me go uh, work on God's will or something.
Okay

Ezekiel 23:

16 As soon as she saw them, she lusted after them and sent messengers to them in Chaldea.
17 Then the Babylonians came to her, to the bed of love, and in their lust they defiled her. After she had been defiled by them, she turned away from them in disgust.
18 When she carried on her prostitution openly and exposed her naked body, I turned away from her in disgust, just as I had turned away from her sister.
19 Yet she became more and more promiscuous as she recalled the days of her youth, when she was a prostitute in Egypt.
20 There she lusted after her lovers, whose genitals were like those of donkeys and whose emission was like that of horses.
21 So you longed for the lewdness of your youth, when in Egypt your bosom was caressed and your young breasts fondled.

I think they'd be more into the passage about Lot's daughters getting him drunk and loving him:

Gen. 19:31-35

“Come, let us make our father drink wine, and let us lie with him that we may preserve our family through our father.” So they made their father drink wine that night, and the firstborn went in and lay with her father; and he did not know when she lay down or when she arose. On the following day, the firstborn said to the younger, “Behold, I lay last night with my father; let us make him drink wine tonight also; then you go in and lie with him, that we may preserve our family through our father.” So they made their father drink wine that night also, and the younger arose and lay with him; and he did not know when she lay down or when she arose.”

What's more, pressuring a child to forgive because "forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those that trespass against us" is beyond hosed up. It takes the focus off the abuser's sin and instead makes the victims look at themselves as sinners even if they've done nothing wrong. They can't even comprehend just how badly they were sinned against and suddenly stealing from the candy bowl or not doing exactly what mommy and daddy say is the problem. If the victim doesn't drop it forever, then it's their own fault because God's already forgiven the abuser. They don't give a poo poo about forgiveness, they just give a poo poo about maintaining control.

James Dobson posted:

Meanwhile, the boy's father has to do his part. He needs to mirror and affirm his son's maleness. He can play rough-and-tumble games with his son, in ways that are decidedly different from the games he would play with a little girl. He can help his son learn to throw and catch a ball. He can teach him to pound a square wooden peg into a square hole in a pegboard. He can even take his son with him into the shower, where the boy cannot help but notice that Dad has a penis, just like his, only bigger.

Maybe we can hope Jim Bob takes the lords name in vain, when he accidentally hammers his thumb while sprucing up his church. Then that inexplicably turns the fundies against him.

Nothing a marathon prayer session or two wouldn't fix. I honestly don't know if there's anything they could do that would permanently alienate a majority of their fanbase assuming they didn't claim it was a "temptation" and immediately repent and beg for forgiveness.

Its part of that whole christian tradition of "I can do whatever I want because god has already forgiven me "

Shnag posted:

I never understand the fixation on homosexuality being a major in sin. Its not even one of the "7 Deadly Sins". If they really try they could try to say lust, but that falls flat on its face considering they try to prevent same sex marriage. Even then, why is that an issue while selling sex on tv isn't? Not to mention gluttony, greed and envy seem to be true American values rather then major sins.

Homosexuality is a good wedge issue that riles up the fundamentalist base and gets them to open up their pocketbooks. Just like abortion - god is the biggest cause of infanticide if you take the old testament seriously but its still in the top five of hot-button issues for christian fundamentalists.

So the woman has to "submit to her husband" whenever he is in the mood right? Does this include oral? Anal? Kinky poo poo?

I'm sure anything sexual that isn't specifically for procreation is frowned upon at best and likely explicitly forbidden.

Killer_B posted:

Remember, in many circles, sodomy isn't referring exclusively to anal penetration...It's got the context set to include oral penetration as well.

The classical definition of sodomy is any sex act that isn't masturbation or PiV.

If he was unrepentant about it, sure, but I think the rubes that follow them wouldn't bat an eye at Josh being caught every other month sucking random guys' dicks at the local adult movie theater while high on ecstasy as long as he did the song and dance of apologizing, doing a marathon prayer session or three and/or going off to christian reparative therapy camp for a few weeks.

If these people handwaved away literal child rape why would they give two shits about consensual sex between two (or more) adults?
