No it comes from one of the major religions of the world, however, I won't spoil it for the OP.

In most major religions, marriage was no guarantee of marital fidelity (for men in particular) if you read their associated texts.

Married men had sex with maids, slaves, had multiple wives/harems, even had sex with other family members.

There is absolutely NO REASON for some of you giving this guy a hard time.

He clearly states it will be hard for some people to understand. And many may disagree.

I've asked him to explain his reasoning to me, and he has been kind enough to do so. Please don't give him a hard time simply because I had the intellectual curiosity to ask him about it.

From what I see, the bashing of his ideals is you all showing your ignorance far more than whatever you perceive his ignorance to be. Is it impossible to respect another persons value system?

I don't believe asking someone for their source is "bashing" someone.

Each to their own....

ONE OF THOSE TWO GROUPS is directly responsible for a vastly disproportion share of the track record of people who lie about love through sex.

ONE OF THOSE TWO GROUPS holds the entire track record of making bad choices which, for some strange reason, creates brand new sentient beings whose only shot at freedom and individuality comes from FIRST submitting to the control and the coercion of the same impatient people who created them --- WITHOUT EXPECTING NOR DEMANDING ANY COMMITMENT from the other person who created the new people and WITHOUT any individual commitment to self-sufficiency.

ONE OF THOSE TWO GROUPS are very happy to publicly humiliate, ostracize, bully, coerce and rape members of THE OTHER GROUP who tends to do nothing of that sort at all.

For various reasons that do not need to be exploicit, ONE OF THOSE TWO GROUPS need to disassociate love from sex. Meanwhile, the OTHER GROUP has no need to do so and in fact, tends to seek the opposite.

ONE OF THOSE TWO GROUPS out-numbers the other group and sets a bad example to their children which is passed on from generation to generation.
I don't consider this kind...I consider it HIGHLY offensive. Maybe he should have pm'ed you rather than posting something this derogatory and inflammatory on a public message board. Since it is posted publically, I'm free to comment on it.

I didn't mention any names, Arabian - if you think I was speaking to you...
perhaps you have a guilty conscious? LOL

Look I'm not trying to get all up in arms over it.
But the fact remains I asked for his opinion. He's not forcing it on anyone.

I simply ask that this be a dialogue based on the mutual exchange of ideas, not to imply any one value set (or religion) is any more valid than the next.

We are each free to make up our own minds and carry on.

PH:

Lots of people do find anything different than their own words offensive.

I guess you are not immune to that affect.

Go figure.

WO: Its not only offensive, its factually incorrect. I could give a lot of examples.

For example, those that take vows of chastity and yet get accused of sexual acts against children. Or people who choose never to get married and yet stay faithful in committed relationships for years and years. I have a lot of gay friends in the U.S. that couldn't get married and yet have very loving and committed long-term relationships.

There are a lot of no longer married, sexually active people on this forum. And to suggest that they're more inclined to rape, to have sex without love, to make bad decisions, to pass along bad values to their children is absolutely offensive. I certainly do not respect anyone making such a ridiculous generalization.

Face it, people here in this forum demonstrate their prejudice when they read to the point where they fabricate and misrepresent what they read with an intent to offend. Many people let their emotions take control of many of their decisions --- I cite the recent bill proposal to make equal parenting a default start for all negotiation. That is a long way of saying that I do not expect most people to read my writing with an honest intent to understand or with the ability to understand. Therefore, I am limiting my expression to be as least offensive as possible --- if I can.
I thought I would point out what was said at the start of this.

Again this is the posters opinion...They are free to it and they are aware that it offends people.

I don't agree with it but who am I to judge someone's opinion.

Again people are also free to comment on it. No point in getting all upset over it as you were more than warned... lol.
