The Obvious Blur Between Lena Dunham & Josh Duggar

Liberal logic at it’s highest, they laud one pedophile and publicly assault the other. Why? It’s the age-old good against evil, liberal against conservatives, the Godless against Christians. I, among others, posed this question on ‪‎twitter, the ‪‎liberal logic‬ of embracing what Lena Dunham‬ did to her sister and wrote about the abuse in a book. Liberals APPLAUD her for being a pedophile while they take shots at Josh Duggar. This is the answer I was given:

KEEPLIFELEGAL

Wowzers. It’s an interesting thing…when you point your finger at someone, there are three pointing back AT YOU. Every. Time.

This is so obvious, people hate God so much that they would protect a woman who sexually abused her own sister AND WROTE ABOUT HER PERVERSION WITHOUT APOLOGY. Josh Duggar ALSO does the unthinkable, admits it, gets counselling, and gives his statement:

Twelve years ago, as a young teenager I acted inexcusably for which I am extremely sorry and deeply regret. I hurt others, including my family and close friends. I confessed this to my parents who took several steps to help me address the situation. We spoke with the authorities where I confessed my wrongdoing and my parents arranged for me and those affected by my actions to receive counseling. I understood that if I continued down this wrong road that I would end up ruining my life. I sought forgiveness from those I had wronged and asked Christ to forgive me and come into my life. I would do anything to go back to those teen years and take different actions. In my life today, I am so very thankful for God’s grace, mercy and redemption.

All that Lena did was backtrack, retract, act, and just bubble over with sick pseudo pride of doing the unthinkable. A Facebook comment on her page said: “You are a rapist who falsely accuses others of rape. There is word for that. It is called projection” AND “She’s the Al Sharpton of rape.” Find more comments about this here.

Both Josh and Lena did a very bad thing, and they will both answer for it….BOTH. Lena and others like her will continue to blow up his sin while forgetting their own.

All children should be protected; born, unborn, the afflicted. What incestuous pedophiles take is something that can never be given back. This is a crime against nature, against God, against humanity. A pedophile takes a child’s dignity and replaces it with fear, perhaps for the rest of their lives.

The Abuse of the Fourteenth Amendment: Roe v. Wade of Marriage

Christian Americans are under siege, they are being targeted, and the very thing that is supposed to protected us is being used to try an silence us and God. The Constitution will be our undoing because we do not stand up in droves to protect ourselves as the so-called ‘oppressed’ do. Instead, Christian Americans are on cruise control believing, as we all did, that we are already protected. And we should, but how much longer can this continue when so-called due process is used against what this country is founded upon? Christian Americans are in danger of losing freedom of speech, freedom of religion because of a new sect of America: The Protected Class. Since when has the Fourteenth Amendment become the trash bag for protected classes? Religious Freedom

RIGHT TO PRIVACY [1965]: Women’s contraception protected, now being used to protect, substantiate, validate and endorse all perversions, hate crimes to Christians and Churches. 

ABORTION [1973]: Women protected, not men or the unborn.

HOMOSEXUAL SEX [2003]: Sodomy protected in every U.S. state and territory, not one man and one woman.

MARRIAGE EQUALITY [????]: Same sex marriage protected, no one else’s, eradicates religious freedom and liberties.

The ‘right to privacy’ has murdered 55+ MILLION children and will try to murder Christianity, marriage, and religious freedom.

Who has due process? According to the Constitution [before it became toilet paper for Liberals, Progressives, Democrats] EVERYONE. But because people want to be protected above everyone else, the Constitution has been usurped by our own social engineers, the Supreme Court.

Legislating same sex marriage is not the answer to the marriage question, it’s an excuse to target and bully. Understand their motive and agenda, you’ll see what this debacle is all about: Criminalizing Christianity and the proposed protected class of homosexuality.

Then, since the protected classes are buried within the Fourteenth Amendment, here is the actual text from the Constitution; you will see that it takes a depraved and despicable mind to twist the Constitution like a wet dish rag to bleed out a warped and degenerate agenda that couldn’t be classified AS Constitutional by itself, these agendas needed to be sliced and diced like a cheap ‘made for tv’ vegomatic:

Amendment XIV 

Section 1: All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws. 

Section 2: Representatives shall be apportioned among the several states according to their respective numbers, counting the whole number of persons in each state, excluding Indians not taxed. But when the right to vote at any election for the choice of electors for President and Vice President of the United States, Representatives in Congress, the executive and judicial officers of a state, or the members of the legislature thereof, is denied to any of the male inhabitants of such state, being twenty-one years of age, and citizens of the United States, or in any way abridged, except for participation in rebellion, or other crime, the basis of representation therein shall be reduced in the proportion which the number of such male citizens shall bear to the whole number of male citizens twenty-one years of age in such state.

Section 3: No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any state, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any state legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any state, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.

Section 4: The validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law, including debts incurred for payment of pensions and bounties for services in suppressing insurrection or rebellion, shall not be questioned. But neither the United States nor any state shall assume or pay any debt or obligation incurred in aid of insurrection or rebellion against the United States, or any claim for the loss or emancipation of any slave; but all such debts, obligations and claims shall be held illegal and void.

Section 5. The Congress shall have power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article.

#TOLERANCE BYTES: Adoption & Religious Freedom

Being prolife, we have to be prolife a child’s entire life, from conception to natural death. There are so many kids out there that need traditional homes, that WANT traditional homes, with a married man and woman, a mom and a dad. I cannot imagine that any child that is adoptable wants to be exploited by an agenda. However, children don’t have a choice in who will be their new parents. The only people whose choice is accepted is the adoption agency, social workers, the parents-to-be and the judge. Children who are too young to acknowledge the adoption has to trust in the ‘system’ to place them with the family who will be most beneficial to them. But that is hardly the case. Even though the Constitution gives every American the right of religious freedom, we cannot give adoptable children and faith-based adoption agencies the same rights? 

Once again, the child has no voice or choice in the matter; a choice of the life they wish to have and who will provide it. As parents, we all know that a great start in life will provide children with the necessary tools for the rest of their lives. But giving them over to an agenda? That is an entirely different matter. 

Some years ago, we knew of a family in crisis who was forced to place their baby in temporary foster care, which was hard enough, but the STATE placed their baby with a lesbian couple. The baby’s parents and extended family asked that the baby be placed with other family members or a Christian traditional foster family – and the STATE said NO. Shouldn’t the parents have a voice in the matter? Much like medical kidnapping/foster care, children in crisis are at the mercy of a merciless system, state, and country. 

We also know of a same sex couple who adopted a special needs child and exploits it. ALL. THE. TIME. Same sex couples believe that they are taking who no one else will, as if it’s some GRAND sacrifice, but the TRUTH is that adoption is made very difficult to the traditional family because of the costs; just healthcare insurance alone for the child or children in question is nearly unattainable for most hard working, every day families BESIDES attorney and agency fees.

With all of this agenda and exploitation and money changing hands, wasn’t adoption supposed to be about helping these kids get real traditional homes as quickly as possible? 

Then, what also should be addressed here is why same sex couples go to faith-based adoption agencies in the first place…OR why the LGBT is targeting them in the first. Do you really think they do not know the basics of Catholicism, to name just one faith-based agency?

An article in the Detroit Free Press says: “Faith based agencies need to be able to recuse themselves from adoptions that would go against their faith based beliefs.” Now, while that is commendable, that isn’t enough. Adoption needs to be affordable and attainable to real families who really want to help children in crisis. Adoption needs real reform real quick. 

While the state of Ohio passed a new law to unseal adoption records, which we disagree with, this still hasn’t touched what needs to be fixed in the system. The origins of one’s birth is quite a bit different than handing children over to an agenda rather than traditional homes that were once not only the norm, but the only legal way to adopt. 

I know…then a bunch of kids would still be in foster care and ‘age out’ if they weren’t handed over to the LGBT agenda and single parents. The answer to that is the answer we give to most of the the injustice in the world: IT FIRST HAS TO START AT HOME AND IN THE CHURCH. 

Religious freedom has to be protected and enforced at all times for everything. Being intolerant of the Constitution weakens everything every person holds dear: PERSONAL FREEDOMS AND LIBERTIES. If you take just one away from just one sect of people, you have just shot a hole in your own boat.

#TOLERANCE BYTES: Dayton’s Mayor #NanWhaley Threatens #Christian Daytonians & Religious Freedom

Here in Dayton, we do not want LGBT hate money spent here. But thanks to the NCAA and their outloud hatred of religious freedom and the Constitution, their wrath of anything decent has spilled over the state line to try and divide the rest of us in Ohio. No, we don’t want your tainted blood money, no matter how badly our pitiful ‘Mayor’ begs for it. Perhaps if she was a better servant than a hater of the rest of us?

We demand the Mayor of Dayton to protect ALL OF US, including Christians and their small businesses. Instead, she tries to create protected classes. That is NOT what our country was founded upon, but it is why people left Europe hundreds of years ago, to escape tyranny and persecution from those in political power. And she wonders why Montgomery County is LOSING RESIDENTS? Nan Whaley panders to the LGBT and importing muslim refugees and calls herself ‘diverse’. All that she has actually accomplished is building herself an ivory tower of inclusion and hate to everyone else.

The Dayton Daily News said this morning: “Dayton officials hope to capitalize on growing backlash against Indiana’s controversial religious freedom law by attracting companies and individuals who are looking to flee the Hoosier state because of their opposition to the new legislation.” Capitalize? Clearly, Mayor Nan Whaley is trying to capitalize on LGBT hate of Christians in Dayton, see the video here. Yes, she wants your money.

A local reporter said on the evening news: “Mayor Whaley stopped short of imposing a travel ban to Indiana. That is what Seattle’s Mayor and Connecticut’s Governor did for government workers who would be traveling on the tax payer dime.” Commerce and business is open to everyone in Ohio and Dayton; the new law in Indiana [and 19 other states, so far] will keep LGBT hate from targeting known Christian small businesses to exploit.

Clearly, Nan Whaley hates religious freedom, the Constitution and Dayton or she wouldn’t pimp out Dayton to take hate money. Certainly her refugee friends were supposed to fill in the downward economical abyss she helped Dayton to accomplish?

Remember, Ms. Whaley not only attended but was instrumental in getting Cecil Richards of Planned Parenthood in Cincinnati for a fund raiser last year for more abortion in Ohio. Mayor Nan Whaley is not a friend to ALL DAYTONIANS, especially to Christians [she claims to be a Catholic], the traditional family and marriage, and to the unborn.

REAL BATTLE OF NEW ORLEANS, BREAKING: Concrete Contractor Identified

It’s been very difficult for Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast [PPFA] to build their proposed site built on South Claiborne Ave in the very heart of New Orleans. Planned Parenthood stooped so low that it used its racist roots to go for minority businesses to build their killing center AFTER no one would.

Planned Parenthood was supposed to be open for business/baby killing last year and because of the non-stop, diligent work from Louisiana Coalition for Life and the Archdiocese of New Orleans, the photo below shows the ‘progress’ since May of 2013. Read more of the history of Planned Parenthood in Louisiana here. Boycotting WORKS.

It was also noticed by KeepLifeLegal that during this tumultuous time in New Orleans history, THERE IS NO 40 DAYS FOR LIFE PRESENCE. How does this happen that the local 40 Days for Life has considered this campaign to be unimportant?

KeepLifeLegal is a supporter of 40 Days for LIFE. Here, we are appalled at the local level inactivity in New Orleans and Baton Rouge.

Planned Parenthood of New Orleans on South Claiborne Ave
Planned Parenthood of New Orleans on South Claiborne Ave

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Last week we wrote (see urgent update below) about the resumption of work at the Planned Parenthood proposed site in New Orleans.  Since then, we have confirmed that the company providing the concrete is Absolute Concrete Services.  Planned Parenthood has previously indicated that it was their inability to obtain concrete that was holding up the project.  Businesses doing business with Planned Parenthood say it is all about the money.  However, as one local pastor said, “you can’t wash the blood off of the money you receive from Planned Parenthood”.  Please contact Absolute Concrete Services and the other businesses helping to build this child killing center and help them understand this simple truth.

Also, The New Orleans Advocate published a story about the work going on at the Claiborne Avenue site and the effectiveness of pro-lifers.  God bless everyone who has joined us in this effort.

This is an urgent update.  Planned Parenthood and their General Contractor, Barre McNeely, have resumed work on the Claiborne Avenue abortion facility in New Orleans.  Several businesses have been identified as participating in this project and we urge you to contact businesses on the list of those helping to build the Planned Parenthood abortion facility.

Share with these businesses in a respectful and polite way that this is an abortion facility.  Please be sure that you are calling and writing from the most current list and please share this information with friends and family, including social media.  If you receive a response from any of the businesses, we would appreciate it if you would share that with us on the Contact Us page of the website.

For over eight months, the Planned Parenthood abortion facility site at 4636 S. Claiborne Avenue had remained quiet.  The only thing growing was weeds.   In January of this year, the Louisiana Department of Health denied Planned Parenthood a “Certificate of Need”.  This is a legally required permit issued by the state upon certification that a medical or abortion facility is actually needed in the geographical area.  Planned Parenthood maintained that New Orleans should have 2,844 more abortions than are currently performed in the New Orleans area and they (Planned Parenthood) want to sell those additional abortions.  The State of Louisiana has ruled that there are already enough facilities providing abortions in Greater New Orleans.  Planned Parenthood is appealing the state’s decision.

Without this “Certificate of Need”, Planned Parenthood cannot legally operate an abortion facility in New Orleans.  However, this week, they began working at the site again and apparently are trying to repair the foundation and preparing to pour concrete, perhaps as early as next week.  That is why it is urgent that we reach out to those now working at the site.

#TBT: Protesters as Terrorists goes JUST ONE WAY.

Although this information came from a 2009 article and report, the impression that conservative protesters are terrorists has not changed:

Just weeks after a scandal erupted over a Department of Homeland Security report that described as “right-wing extremists” those who oppose abortion and support secure national borders, another report is revealing that the Department of Defense is teaching that protesters are “low-level terrorists.”

Do you have the audacity to:

  • Oppose abortion
  • Oppose same-sex marriage
  • Oppose restrictions on firearms
  • Oppose lax immigration laws
  • Oppose the policies of President Obama regarding immigration, citizenship, and the expansion of social programs
  • Oppose continuation of free trade agreements
  • Are suspect of foreign regimes
  • Fear Communist regimes
  • Oppose a “one world” government
  • Bemoan the decline of U.S. stature in the world
  • Are upset with loss of U.S. manufacturing jobs to China and India, and more

Looks like this so-called terrorism only goes ONE WAY? 

When we attended the protest at the Texas state capital July of 2013, it was the ultra liberal protesters clad in orange that brought and/or threatened to bring used tampons, excrement and bottles of urine. I’m sure they forgot how they literally spit on prolifers and taunted? OH….did I mention that many of them were PAID to be there? Personally, I brought a big hat to keep the sun off my face. How’s that for extreme?

KEEPLIFELEGAL

#TOLERANCE BYTES: The Michael Brown Effect

One day *Ferguson was a normal under-performing suburb with families and immigrants and refugees trying to get along their daily lives, some living hand-to-mouth, some on the street, some doing better. Ferguson is just like a lot of other outlying burbs next to major cities, some do better or worse than others. In this economy, I would call Ferguson ‘normal’. And just like most burbs next to major cities, Ferguson has a median income of $36K, median home of $92K, lost about 5% of population since the last census, 65% black/30% white; in other words, Ferguson is doing way better economically than most burbs next to major cities, including where I live. But what we did not know was how Ferguson was hanging precariously in the balance. The racial divide was about to erupt.

KEEPLIFELEGALPredicting this racial eruption was not as hard as you would think, if you add the slumping economy into the mix. People on hard times react differently than normal, they feel cornered and on edge. Life is hard when there is limited work and opportunities.

And then August 9th happened. It was the match that lit a fire, and that fire spread from all over Ferguson and across the country, causing racial division and hatred. This was not a civil rights case, and if it were, it does not give leeway to commit crimes of any kind. People of Ferguson and across the country decided to commit crimes in Mike Brown’s name to give it ‘credibility’ and an excuse.

However, this article is not about Michael Brown, it is about the effect his case made to make normal every day people to loot, set fires, roll cars, etc. This is about how close we are to every religion or race to erupt and cause what may be irreversible harm and injury to everyone.

American citizens are being indoctrinated with Islam, it being calledKEEPLIFELEGAL a ‘peaceful religion’. We see muslims literally imported to the United States taking our own resources we cannot have. Schools are allowing Islam in, forcing Christianity OUT. Some schools have field trips to mosques, girls told to wear hijab. But as I just mentioned, the resources are given to them while decent tax paying citizens are living in their cars and eating at soup kitchens because these so-called refugees are given whatever they want, including money to open their own business, etc.

Peaceful? Peace loving? So were the residents of Ferguson. So were the residents of Los Angeles in the South Central riots of 1992 that killed 53. So were the residents of Detroit in the Race Riots of 1967 that killed 43. The list of riots that was caused by race, religion or economics is enormous. In other words, people riot or cause war because of an injustice or perceived injustice. Remember that Rodney King said, “Can’t we all get along?” We war each other but a new war is on the horizon.

As I said earlier, this article is not about Ferguson, but what happened to Ferguson and Los Angeles and Detroit should remind us that riots and war can happen with just one match.

Obama has once again stepped on the toes of our Founding Fathers with the blood of Christians being beheaded by Islam, and more recently 40 people were set on fire while still alive. And don’t believe the out loud ‘disassociation’ with ISIS from Islam, certainly ISIS isn’t Buddhist or Baptist – they are ISLAM; they all read the same Koran.

Obama said, “No religion is responsible for terrorism…..And we are not at war with ­Islam…..Islam has been woven into the fabric of our country since its founding” which is all a diabolical lie. Religion put Jesus Christ on a Cross to die a humiliating public death, just to name ONE act of religious terrorism. See the White House conference on “countering violent extremism” video here and read the rest here. Obama’s facts are just a bit off. Why? Because Barack Hussein Obama is protecting Islam in America.

The Koran teaches Islam to hate Christians, to kill them. This plays out in plain sight and still no one pays attention. Since 9/11, Americans are lulled asleep with lies of a religion that hates them. Our resources are used against us while our ‘president’ looks on.

The Michael Brown Effect is close, all of the pieces are in place for Islam to rise in the United States, first to cause unrest, if you can call it that after 9/11 – and then war. Just like Ferguson, every day life was what it was, predictable. And today we are just as asleep at the wheel as they were. Did Ferguson know they would riot on August 8th? No…and neither do Americans trust in the signs of the times while Islam consumes Christians one country at a time. Just one match can set a fire; just one death can cause a riot. What will it take for Islam to make sense to the average individual that they will take no prisoners?

What Ferguson did not realize is that all the pieces were in place on August 8th, tensions were high and tight, ready to do battle. What they did not know is when. When hate and race and religion are picked at long enough, August 9th will happen again – this time with Islam.

The Church needs to know their community so well that they can sense a change in the weather. Pastors are not watchman as they are called to be. If Pastors cannot discern the times, then how can they righteously arm their flock properly with the knowledge of the Word of God and the times to come?

What will be that one match to start that fire? Until that day, we may not know. Active terrorism in America is a breath away, the signs are obvious and the sky is dark. Make no mistake Christian – we will see tribulation. Soon. Because America has been tolerant, nearly to death.

Jesus said, “When it is evening you say, ‘It will be fair weather, for the sky is red’;  and in the morning, ‘It will be foul weather today, for the sky is red and threatening.’ Hypocrites! You know how to discern the face of the sky, but you cannot discern the signs of the times.” Matthew 16:2-3

AND:

 “So you, son of man: I have made you a watchman for the house of Israel; therefore you shall hear a word from My mouth and warn them for Me.” Ezekiel 33:7

Christian, you may think you know persecution, but I assure you that the 21 Coptic Christians would disagree with you. Persecution is coming to America, to the Church, and to every Christian in the name of a ‘peaceful religion’ and Obama has nodded in approval.

#TOLERANCE BYTES: Who is that one guy who preached against abortion? or, The Audacity of Matt Chandler.

That should NEVER be a question nor the exception. EVERY Pastor should be preaching against abortion so much so that the church member should be able to preach the message themselves. Just as every Christian needs to know the plan of Salvation, they too should know the Message of LIFE.

KEEPLIFELEGALThe prolife world went crazy with a Pastor that actually preached against abortion – and while that is a great thing, why is it not normal or typical of the church? Why is this so rare that the entire prolife movement made this go viral?

I am not criticizing Matt Chandler’s message. Not at all. He had the guts to call out abortion in a mega church – not a small church where you know most of the members but a church system that has ‘campuses’. But because the 51 minute message is so taboo – even in the church – he took 12 minutes to ease the crowd with anecdotes of his family life, 20 minutes to say when life begins, and finally 22 minutes to say the word “ABORTION”. What this proves is that Pastors are FEARFUL of speaking out on the murder of innocent children in the womb.

I used to believe that people hated the Message of LIFE because it KEEPLIFELEGALwas offensive to them, maybe from a past abortion experience, but I don’t think that’s true anymore.  The real reason is that when you hear the Message of LIFE, you are now responsible to be diligent in all aspects of what God wants from us, to protect His immeasurable Creation, one unborn child at a time. Now, it’s on YOU.

Why are Pastors fearful of the Message of LIFE? Money. Agenda. Power. Money. Have Pastors shown favor to those that can lift them up rather than to the lost, the dying, the infirm:

“Who do we give this power to?” said Pastor Chandler regarding making some human beings not as important as others, much like how Nazi Germany and plantation owners did. 

KEEPLIFELEGALThe Church has to stand in the Gap. There is no other way. Holding a sandwich just far enough from the homeless man to keep his attention is not the way to preach the Message; that only prolongs his hunger for the sandwich. The GOSPEL is what the lost and dying need, not bait.

PASTORS: If your church does not preach Life continually and does not have an active LIFE ministry, then you’re just playing church placating your own agenda. If you were a Doctor, would you tell the truth to your patient? Then why aren’t you doing the same for your own Church?

Your church is tolerating abortion if it is not actively preaching against abortion. The Church can’t have it both ways. Far too long have people assumed that the Church and all Christians are against abortion; while in theory they are, but not in action or deed.

 

 

#50Shades of Shame – Women, Pornography & the Church

The Facebook page has over 8 MILLION likes. But then, depravity has its minions. 50 Shades of Grey book and movie is the latest so-called ‘mommy porn’ that has also made its way to the women of the Church, and quite easily. How did Christian women get to that point?

Everything starts somewhere, there is a beginning to everything…pornography addiction, women and the church is no exception.

A preteen sees her grandmother reading paperback novels every day. Having never been a ‘reader’, this preteen asks about the books Grandma reads all the time. Grandma says that it’s nothing important, just something to while away the time. She had many hours to fill since she was wheelchair-bound, over 65 and on a fixed income. She said that she and her friends and neighbors would trade books all the time so they wouldn’t have to buy any. But the funny thing was….that she never offered one to her young granddaughter to read. Then one day, she found out Grandma’s dirty little secret. ~ Anonymous 

But don’t be fooled, those innocent little paperback romance novels emblazoned with virtuous young women and hulky square-jawed men were just as explicit as any other pornographic material. These novels have evolved into a socially accepted form of ‘entertainment’ that is nothing short of pornographic filth.

Besides 50 Shades being an obvious rip off of 9 1/2 Weeks, it is also the diving board that goes into the full blown pornography pool. And Christians, even Christian women, are all in [source]:

• 60% of all Christian men and 30% of all Christian women are addicted to pornography.
• 60% of the women who answered the survey admitted to having significant struggles with lust;
• 40% admitted to being involved in sexual sin in the past year; and 20% of the church-going female participants struggle with looking at pornography on an ongoing basis.

But the most disturbing: 12 to 17 year olds are the largest consumers of Internet pornography [source].

People who are addicted to pornography are more likely to act out what they see and read than people who do not seek pornography to ‘spice up’ an otherwise normal relationship with their spouse. Are porn addicts more likely to commit rape, statutory rape, ‘crimes against nature’, and adultery?  Without hesitation, yes…just ask Ted Bundy.

Even if the actual crime was not committed, it was fantasized about and considered. Christian women need to understand that even thinking about it is fornication and adultery. Period. There is no ‘grey’ area on this anywhere in the Bible OR the Pulpit. I personally know of regular-church-going women that have read and GUSHED about 50 Shades OPENLY on social media. Of course my mind goes two places: Is this porn rag where your children can see/read it AND what else are you hiding? Books are not innocent, they are tools to teach and entertain. 50 Shades is teaching women to be victims and showing that ‘mommy porn’ is acceptable when clearly it contradicts natural affections for our spouse, family and friends.

If you have read 50 Shades and might be considering seeing the movie, I implore you to look inside yourself and ask why you need to be publicly aroused in a movie house that seats hundreds of other offenders. Porn is porn, 50 Shades is no different, these are vehicles that can change your life in an instant, going in a direction you never knew you would go, it will never be enough.

Christian women have an OBLIGATION to their families and husbands to stay away from pornography in any form, whether it be a garage sale romance novel, 50 Shades all dolled up in a glossy book cover or explicit movies and borrowed DVD’s that your husband doesn’t know about.

Christian women, wives and mothers: PRAY. You are being targeted by forces against God and nature to break up your family and ultimately your walk with Christ.
