One of my morning haunts online is a site called “AlterNet.” Often one can find interesting viewpoints and usually more truthful political news and information there than is found on mainstream news sites. Sometimes, though, I find horrid examples of what is so wrong with this country. Such is the case with today’s offerings.
WARNING: ADULT LANGUAGE AND SITUATIONS… can’t wait to read it now, huh?
Ted takes on controversy once again.
BE ADVISED, THIS IS AN ADULT ORIENTED POST!
Ted says: Sex is a selfish act no matter who does it or where, including within marriage!
Fornication: voluntary sexual intercourse between two unmarried persons or two persons not married to each other. (dictionary.com)
Adultery: voluntary sexual intercourse between a married person and someone other than his or her lawful spouse.
Old-fashioned words. Old Testament, even. Both are popular sports in America. Americans wallow in them, like the David Duchovney show Californication.
The question of “living together” vs. “marriage” is a question of sexual activity, not sharing the same dwelling. “Living together” is an extended euphemism from “sleeping together.” Call it what it is.
Is it a “right” thing to do? Will God strike a couple down, “withdraw his spirit,” any of that fundamentalist junk, if a couple has sex without being married? These are the wrong questions.
