Bachmancare: James 5:13-15 ESV

Is anyone among you suffering? Let him pray. Is anyone cheerful? Let him sing praise. Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer of faith will save the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven.

Obamacare: Deuteronomy 15:7-11 ESV

“If among you, one of your brothers should become poor, in any of your towns within your land that the Lord your God is giving you, you shall not harden your heart or shut your hand against your poor brother, but you shall open your hand to him and lend him sufficient for his need, whatever it may be. Take care lest there be an unworthy thought in your heart and you say, ‘The seventh year, the year of release is near,’ and your eye look grudgingly on your poor brother, and you give him nothing, and he cry to the Lord against you, and you be guilty of sin. You shall give to him freely, and your heart shall not be grudging when you give to him, because for this the Lord your God will bless you in all your work and in all that you undertake. For there will never cease to be poor in the land. Therefore I command you, ‘You shall open wide your hand to your brother, to the needy and to the poor, in your land.’


I'm not a Christian, just curious if there were verses related to this shit.

Look, I don't advocate for running to the cops for everything, but why would anyone want to keep a consumer of kiddie porn in their home -- or care for a dying pedophile to begin with? Shouldn't he be dying in jail? Those pictures could lead to the arrest of distributors and, more importantly, producers of the porn.

Here, class, is an excellent demonstration of how, in dog-culture, it is impolite to stare directly at another dog when arguing or otherwise communicating.

This is a bogus test. The following indicators were present in my results:

Preoccupation: obsessive thinking about sexual behavior, opportunities, and fantasies
Loss of control: inability to stop behavior despite commitments to self and others and despite problems caused by behavior
Relationship disturbance: sexual behavior has created significant relationship problems
Affect disturbance: significant depression, despair, or anxiety over sexual behavior

I am happily married, all sexual experiences have been with my husband, and I'm guilty of thinking about fucking my husband constantly. That's the only "problem" I seem to have (that and renting porn with my husband regularly, which is not ok apparently) -- for those reasons, according to the test I'm an addict. The test results indicate I should feel guilty about that.

Screw those people! If being sexually obsessed with your spouse is wrong, I don't want to be right!

The reason for all of this institutional language is that the federal government spends millions (billions perhaps) per year on researching public safety, and in order for law and order agencies to continue to receive programmatic funding, they must implement some of the findings of all that research -- or the system breaks!

Finally! Something the Bible and I agree on.
Nov 15, 2012 soldia commented on Sl Letter of the Day: After-the-Fact Cuckold Denial.
The answer to this question doesn't seem complete, Dan.

I have similar fantasies about my husband, and he about me. Both of us began the fantisizing because we both had fears of each other cheating. Fantasizing about it, and bringing it into our bedroom, actually made us able to talk about these fears and let us both feel wecould be more honest about our desires outside our marriage, which eventually became a fun little hot game to us.

All of this has deepened our relationship both inside and outside the bedroom. Inside the bedroom, we engage in our wildest fantasies (which started out as our wildest fears). Outside the bedroom, we love and trust one another, knowing that if we get turned on by someone else, we can go back into the bedroom and fuck our spouse and pretend whatever we want. Fantasizing about other partners, watching each other with other partners, switching or trading or whatever, helps to both keep things hot in our bedroom, and keeps us both satisfied so we don't go seeking things outside the bedroom.

But here's the end to the story: Having this game between us doesn't mean my husband wants to be a cuckold in real life though, or that I want to watch him fuck another woman in real life. What happens in our bedroom stays in our bedroom. It doesn't mean we're closet cuckolds however.

It could also be a case of the woman who is looking for the "perfect" guy, who is attracted to married men because they are considered valuable by another woman. In this case, the woman thinks the man who is married is a good candidate for being a "perfect" guy because another woman found him to be good enough to marry. It may not sound logical (it isn't), but it is a thought process some women go through. It's what Alanis Morissette sings about: "I meet the man of my dreams and then I meet his beautiful wife."

These are also the same women who are *surprised* when said "perfect" man later cheats on them.

@6, coming from experience, a woman who is married to a closeted or refuses-to-acknowledge-the-truth-about-themselves gay man learns to use such phrases as "suck my dick" to get a pussy-hating man to pay attention to her.
