My situation is so similar to yours. My BF cheated on me with his underage student and we are now both going through individual therapy and couples counseling. His therapist insists on saying "the victim" when talking about this girl instead of using her name. It makes me incredibly mad. She initiated the whole thing, manipulated him and did everything in her power to keep him hooked. I know it sounds like I'm excusing him, I am not. He was so stupid to allow this to happen. But it is so wrong in my mind to call her "the victim". What happened between them was all she ever wanted, she had never been happier. I understand that legally she's the victim. But outside of that, absolutely not. She has ruined my life, she is no victim.

Pelosi is rich, probably from killing babies. She is a feminist like most Dem women. She takes botox to control some disease and that is the reason for her face being so twisted. She wears extremely expensive clothes and forces the military to fly her around at taxpayer expense.

Schumer is a mooch. He used to beg Trump for campaign donations. He too likes the idea of killing babies. He is a beta male like most Dem males.

Quote# 142140

February 8, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – The daughter of famed science fiction author Marion Zimmer Bradley has written an autobiographical account revealing the horrors of growing up in a home raised by LGBT parents who repeatedly sexually abused her and her brothers.

“I have heard all the customary protestations. ‘Your parents were evil because they were evil, not because they were gay,’ but I disagree,” writes Moira Greyland in her new book, The Last Closet: The Dark Side of Avalon.

“The underlying problem is a philosophical one that is based on beliefs that are not only common to gay culture but to popular culture. And this is the central belief: All Sex is Always Right No Matter What,” she wrote.

“I had both biological parents in the home, but both refused to act like traditional parents,” writes Greyland. “I needed my father to protect me and to see me as a girl instead of refusing to protect me and seeing me as an amorphous nothing who competed with him for boys. I needed my mother to love me and hold me and comfort me instead of being a terrifying, angry dictator. Worse than that, I was expected to not want them to love me and protect me, or to act like normal parents. I was supposed to be happy that they were doing their own thing, no matter what they did to us.”

The Last Closet has been an Amazon bestseller for weeks as a Kindle e-book, and is scheduled to be published as a print book this month. Over one hundred readers have reviewed it, and virtually all have given it five stars.

The book recounts Greyland’s life with her mother, who was the author of The Mists of Avalon and many other famous works of science fiction and fantasy, and her father, Walter Breen, who was a world-renowned authority on numismatics. Both identified as “gay,” both abused drugs and were involved in occult practices, and both were pedophiles, Greyland says, a claim that has been confirmed by her only surviving brother.

The couple’s LGBT ideology was constantly imposed on the children by both parents. Greyland says that Zimmer Bradley expected her to take on masculine mannerisms and to become a lesbian, and was disappointed in her attraction to the opposite sex, accusing her of being a “breeder.” Greyland also had to hide from her parents her conversion to Christianity which would have been received with terrible derision.

Alarmingly, Greyland reveals that her parents’ sympathetic views of pedophilia and pederasty had been a public fact for decades, one known particularly among science fiction and fantasy fans who attended fan conferences. Science fiction fans documented Breen's molestation of at least ten children by 1963, which had only resulted in his temporary exclusion from the largest science fiction fan convention, Worldcon, and was never reported to the police. Breen continued to attend conferences for many years afterward, baiting children he targeted with abuse with various science education gadgets that would attract their attention.

Greyland writes that Breen was an open member of the “North American Man-Boy Love Association,” and he saw his pederastic proclivities as a natural consequence of his homosexuality. He and Zimmer Bradley jointly published a journal on pederasty and pedophilia, The International Journal of Greek Love, in 1965 and 1966, and Zimmer wrote an article for it treating lesbian pedophilia in a positive manner.

As awareness grew of Breen’s molestation of children among Berkeley science fiction fans in 1963, a newsletter was published about the problem that came to be called the “Breendoggle,” which openly speculated that Zimmer Bradley was tolerant of Breen’s behavior. However, the truth about Zimmer Bradley’s own sexual abuse of her daughter did not come to light until 2014, when Greyland was asked about her parents’ connection to pedophilia by the blogger and science fiction writer Deirdre Saoirse Moen.

Greyland’s response, published in Moen’s blog, received heavy coverage by major media outlets worldwide, including The Washington Post, The Guardian, Die Welt, and Entertainment Weekly. Many fans and former acquaintances of Zimmer Bradley denounced her, and some even burned her books.

“The first time she molested me, I was three. The last time, I was twelve, and able to walk away,” wrote Moira Greyland of her mother.

“I put Walter in jail for molesting one boy. I had tried to intervene when I was 13 by telling Mother and [Zimmer Bradley’s girlfriend] Lisa, and they just moved him into his own apartment.”

“I had been living partially on couches since I was ten years old because of the out of control drugs, orgies, and constant flow of people in and out of our family 'home.'"

The family’s secrets began to unravel in the late 1980s, when Moira, now an adult, personally saw her father sexually abusing a boy and reported him to the police. Her testimony ensured a second conviction after an earlier arrest and conviction in the 1950s. Soon after, police uncovered the previous conviction as well as other accusations of sexual molestation, and prosecutors were able to send Walter Breen to prison for the rest of his life. Breen never repented of his acts, and always defended them, treating himself as a victim of an ignorant and backward society. He died of cancer while in jail awaiting transfer to long-term imprisonment.

Zimmer Bradley and her lesbian partner Elisabeth Walters went on the record in ensuing civil litigation admitting to knowing about Breen’s proclivities, and ultimately agreed to pay a civil settlement to Breen’s victims. However, their fans remained generally unaware of Zimmer Bradley’s own acts of sexual abuse until Moira and her brother Patrick began to speak publicly about it in 2014.

The trauma suffered by Moira and Patrick was so great that both of them chose a new last name, “Greyland,” to repudiate their parents’ last names. The abuse was not only sexual, but also physical and psychological, and was so savage that both siblings continue to suffer from powerful symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder.

Greyland says she has spoken to many others who were raised by LGBT parents and their stories are very similar to her own.

“Every single child of gay parents with whom I spoke had certain things in common,” she writes in The Last Closet. “Those with only same-sex parents in the home ached for their missing parent and longed for a real father, and nearly all of us had been sexualized far too young.”

According to a recent petition launched on Change.org, the Air Max logo on the bottom of some Nike Air Max sneakers resembles the word “Allah,” the word for God in Arabic, written in Arabic script.

“Nike has produced the Nike Air Max 270 shoe with the script logo on the sole resembling the word Allah in Arabic, which will surely be trampled, kicked and become soiled with mud or even filth,” Saiqa Noreen, who started the appeal, wrote on the petition’s homepage.

“It is outrageous and appalling of Nike to allow the name of God on a shoe,” Noreen wrote. “This is disrespectful and extremely offensive to Muslims and insulting to Islam. Islam teaches compassion, kindness and fairness towards all.”

Noreen also urged Nike to “recall this blasphemous and offensive shoe and all products with the design logo resembling the word Allah from worldwide sales immediately.”

Nike’s Air shoes have faced criticism in the past for their branding. In 1997, Nike came under fire for using a flame-shaped logo that resembled the world “Allah” in Arabic script. The company apologized and stopped selling shoes with that design.

In this case, Nike maintains that the logo is nothing more than a stylized representation of the Air Max brand.

I would be critical of the "ace community" regardless because human beings are not fucking amoebas.

"Asexual" already had a meaning before the sparklequeers came along and it did NOT mean "I don't take care of my body/ I have an undiagnosed and therefore untreated health problem, so I don't have a sex drive anymore."

Also you do not have to want to fuck everyone on the planet to have a healthy sex drive. I fucking hate porn, it's warped EVERYONE's expectations of what human sexuality should be about.

So yeah, basically, fuck "aromantic"-ism too.

Bilibili appears to have started censoring gay content featuring kissing scenes

Bilibili, China’s leading video-streaming website, never explicitly branded itself as a space for gay content. But since its launch in 2009, the platform has been a boon to the Chinese gay community and people who enjoy watching gay-themed shows or fan art because of its relatively open-minded attitude toward sexuality compared with that of other streaming services in China.

However, recently, a growing number of Bilibili users reported that some videos uploaded by them had been gradually taken offline for featuring same-sex romantic content like kissing scenes.

The ongoing purge came to the public’s attention thanks to a Weibo post (in Chinese) by @????????, who claimed that her videos about the Norwegian teen drama SKAM, which contains several gay storylines, were flagged as “inappropriate content” and were forcibly removed from the platform. Confused about the definition of “inappropriate content,” the user later contacted the Bilibili staff and was told that the site would no longer host “gay content with visuals that include kissing, or go beyond kissing.”

The post sparked heated discussions among Bilibili users, who found the site’s response self-contradictory. On the one hand, Bilibili wanted to make it clear that it took no issue with gay content in general and that the clampdown was not a form of discrimination against the gay community. But on the other hand, many users discovered that romantic content featuring male-female pairings was not targeted. “Apparently, according to Bilibili’s rules, straight people are entitled to do whatever they want, whereas gay people can only have platonic relationships,” one Weibo user wrote (in Chinese).

For a long time, Bilibili differentiated itself from other major streaming sites such as Tudou and Youku by providing a space for a variety of subculture groups to thrive. This constitutes a big portion of its appeal to young internet users in China, who seem to be more liberal in terms of sexuality. But since last year, Bilibili has come under closer scrutiny by internet regulators in China. In the summer of 2018, the site was taken off a number of Android app stores after being criticized by state-owned television for inappropriate and vulgar content. Amid the clampdown, Bilibili vowed to conduct “deep self-review and reflection,” which, in the eyes of its users, was a gesture of bowing to the pressures exerted on it by the government’s growing control over online content.

According to a 2013 *very pro-gay* study (data is from 1982-2011) in Denmark, (legal same-sex marriage since 1989) married lesbians were more than six times more likely to commit suicide than married straight women. They were also at a 60 percent increased risk of death from cancer, for reasons not yet understood.

It is well known and inarguable that gay men are the main victims of AIDS. 2016 data from the CDC shows that gay men aged 13 to 34 account for 64% of HIV diagnoses. Gay men also have a much higher suicide rate than even single hetero men.

It is also well known that transgender people have a horrible mortality caused in part by a verified 41% suicide rate.

NONE of the above facts are from far-right or religious group studies! If anything they understate how deadly dangerous these lifestyle choices are. And that fact has been known for well over 2000 years!

Romans 1:26 For this reason God gave them over to degrading and vile passions [...] and in return receiving in their own bodies the inevitable and appropriate penalty for their wrongdoing.?

And yet the left demand that CHILDREN are taught that there's no reason to fear these practices.

Not only is everything you are attempting to change the meanings of— incorrect but is also all lies. The Sons of Israel who were Given to God were to become Priest they were never child sacrificed as you claim here. Your taking verses out of context and not reading the whole passage. Putting what you wish to believe in its place.

Foreign slaves were to be treated with love and respect and care by their owners as the Law itself was commanded in Leviticus and not as the Egyptians had done by whippings and brutal treatment and harsh labors.

Your Living Large In the City. Numbers clearly states “WAS” which means that after they defeated Sihon and afterwards the Israelite's settled all the lands they were promised just as the Bible foretold.

Why did God harden Pharaoh’s heart? Pharaoh who was a ruthless and self centered man had refused repeatedly to give in to God’s demands. As a result both mankind and animal at that time had to suffer immensely at Pharoah’s hands. The Pharoah contended with the Living God Almighty and God was kind enough to give him and all Egypt twelve signs of his power and authority. Many Egyptians left with the Israelites also as stated in the Bible. Pharaoh chose his course and decided in his own mind to slaughter them all and God lead him into a trap by his own greed and destroyed him.

Your 11th Plague of Snakes is Exodus 13;6 is a lie for here is that verse as it reads Exodus 13;6,,,6 Seven days you are to eat unleavened bread,+ and on the seventh day, there will be a festival to Jehovah. 7 Unleavened bread is to be eaten for the seven days;+ and nothing leavened is to be found with you,+ and no sourdough is to be found with you within all your territory.* 8 And you must tell your son on that day, ‘It is because of what Jehovah did for me when I came out of Egypt.———Snakes Doesn’t exist there.

If you would taken the time to finish those versus you would have realized your mistakes. Clearly you have a hatred of God by your actions. But why attack what you know nothing about. I suggest read it the Bible from start to finish before posting unfounded things. What your unknowingly doing is the same as what Pharaoh had done. That in itself is a dangerous course.

“25:55 For unto me the children of Israel are servants, they are my servants whom I have brought out of the land of Egypt: I am the Lord your God. “

We ARE ALL supposed to be HIS servants. Is what it is saying.

Just like we were supposed to be taking care of His garden and all the animals Adam got to name. Everyone thinks they are too good to serve anyone. Just like the fallen angels. Get off yourself and on your knees but not to false gods and Antichrist's and devil worshipper’s that changed the scriptures and the Sabbath Day. But to the One Jesus Christ who became the perfect sacrifice to offer for our sins.

Not to mention the only humble servant yet without sin and who proved it is possible for a spirit to live in a body without sinning.

Jim Grunseth: Hi Aidan,
What objection do you have against the existence of the God of the Bible and His Son, The Lord Jesus? Do you believe Jesus lived, was crucified, and then rose again from the grave?

Aidan Sansom
No, I don't Jim. Not any more.
There are currently a whole host of objections I have to the God of the Bible. Chief among them being his perceived condemnation of the homosexual people he creates. The game would appear rigged.
Please, for one moment, address the points I am presenting you with, Jim. I worry that you are just trying to preach at people rather than to listen as well.
But the bottom line is this: If you really, truly think in your heart of hearts that Ms Beeching is born straight and has somehow convinced herself she is gay, then I'm afraid we're going to have to leave this discussion here. And please - answer it with your personal feelings, not with a Bible verse.

Jim Grunseth: I just found your comment here...
We put way too much emphasis on what we think and feel and not nearly enough on what God thinks and feels. I know, in print, that sounds cold...I do not mean it to, Aidan...
Since about 1700, man has developed a lower view of and reverence for God and has placed a higher view of "man". You know this from your studies, I am sure...Renaissance age to age of reason (I might have my dates a bit off )...but we are now clearly in the age of reason, the age of self, and the age of man. (God, whatever he is, must revolve around us...not the other way around.) If man experiences it, God must approve it. If it feels right, then it must be right and God, regardless of what is said in a holy book, must either agree or find himself or herself (not my thoughts) irrelevant.
I have love and want kindness for my Transgender family member. But if I love him, I want to warn him of the danger of him continuing in his God-dishonoring conduct. You see, I actually possess a high view of God...hopefully, thru much failure, I high reverence for Him. God does not revolve around me. I revolve around Him, His hopes, His plans, His dreams, His desires, His Word. If He commands it, I am to obey. Remember: He who has the keys to Hell should not be trifled with. God is good...but He is not tame.
Romans 1:18-to the end and 1Corinthians 6 are very clear. For me to trifle with or ignore this is to my peril. This is what I believe. I share all this because I care.. I am not warning the LGBTQ community, Rather, I am warning them in love. (Ezekiel 33:1-6) Thoughts?

(="‘I Am a Christian’ Gaga Claims, Calls Pence ‘Worst’ Christian Example as Wife Works at School Prohibiting Homosexuality"=)

This "pretender" to the Faith has no concept of the depth and scope of her inborn and natural proclivity to sin; and profanely and contemptuously so while being completely ignorant of the fact that she is not known by Christ. She is not one of His beloved redeemed. Ms. Gaga has measured herself as "righteous" and able to judge another "righteously," BUT looks through the scrim of her personally developed theology. And such a theology is darkness borne through Satan's system of standards.

It is very doubtful that Ms. Gaga has ever heard the true Gospel of Christ exhorted by a doctrinally sound pastor-teacher; has ever read an authorized version of the Bible; has ever developed a personal fellowship with one of the truly redeemed of Christ; and has ever come to that point in eternity where her heart has yearned to be forgiven and reconciled to God. She does not understand how profanely arrogant her sin of adding to and taking away from God's Word is. She is in a terrible place of storing up God's wrath. Yet, God's mercy and grace can abound for her also. John 6:44-45, 65.

In some ways my situation is the same.
My husband of 20 years was arrested in 2016 of child porn. Not small children 15, 16, 17 year old. He has no interest in a "live" person or so I am told.
While many of these girls chose to have the picture taken or the act recorded and then post it on the internet they are the victims.
In the mean time my life and my children's have been turned upside down.
I realize this was a choice he made and that makes it harder for us.

My counselor told me once that "we are the forgotten victims" and we are.
These men are not thinking of their spouse or children when they do it. At that moment they don't care about the repercussions if they are caught and what it will do to their families.
The girls, they don't give a damn about us. The willing ones have only one goal in mind and will do anything to achieve it. I am not excusing the men in this!
The law they are not concerned with us. They only want to get convictions. to show the world how tough they are on crime and how concerned they are with the victims.

So yes, we are the victims that no one cares about!

So, if you would have asked me my opinion on the registry a year ago, I would have said, its great and we all need to make ourselves aware of all the red dots on the block.

Now, I am engaged to one. He served 10 years for the sexual assault of his daughter who was between the ages of 6 and eleven during the abuse. Prision saved this man's life and with the help and healing that only a supernatural God can provide, he has an amazing restored relationship with his now 24 year old daughter.

God is good. But people don't want to hear that a man can overcome this most disturbing urge. They want to contunue to vilanize him and make life so difficult that at times he has contemplated taking his own life. Where is the help? Support and body of Christ for the "lepers of our day?"

Too lavish, too nasty: Chinese state media goes to war against Yanxi Palace and other period dramas

Imperial dramas blamed for promoting extravagance, glamour and pleasure-seeking over the virtues of frugality and hard work

Programme makers also accused of putting commercial profits above providing spiritual guidance to audiences

Some of China’s most popular historical dramas have been taken down from television channels after state media launched an unusual attack on the genre for its extravagance and “negative influence on society”.

The extravagant series Ruyi’s Royal Love in the Palace about a girl strategically climbing above her rank to become Empress of the Qing Dynasty was scheduled for Monday afternoon on Dragon TV, but was replaced by a reality show, Joyful Comedians.

Some online commentators also claimed Shandong TV had replaced its regular evening showing of the hit series Story of Yanxi Palace with Ode to Joy, a contemporary drama series about five women seeking love and career success in Shanghai.

The change in programming schedules followed an article in Friday’s edition of the Beijing Daily magazine Theory Weekly which called out the “sins” of imperial dramas, claiming they encouraged viewers to pursue the glamorous lifestyles of China’s past monarchs and promoted pleasure and luxury above the “virtues of frugality and hard work”.

The article singled out a number of period dramas – including ?Story of Yanxi Palace and ?Ruyi’s Royal Love in the Palace – and said a close following of the plots of these series – which usually involve elaborate schemes hatched by back-stabbing courtiers – would worsen the “balance” of society.

The programme makers were also accused of putting commercial profits above providing spiritual guidance to their audiences.

Story of Yanxi Palace broke all viewing records when it was released last summer on video streaming site iQiyi. The 70-episode series has since racked up more than 5 billion views on Chinese streaming services and is especially popular with women.

The drama – set in the Qing dynasty court, where the emperor’s concubines vie for power – became an overnight sensation for its elaborate costumes and set design, as well as its strong-willed and cunning female protagonist, a rarity in typical Chinese court dramas, which usually feature pure and innocent women characters.

Online commentators on China’s social media platform Weibo defended their favourite television drama.

“Yanxi Palace’s contribution to the feminist movement has been hugely underestimated. From little angel Fucha’s silent protest against feudal etiquette … to sister Wei’s leveraging of imperial power to reach the peak of human life, they have reached the limits of what women could do in a feudal society,” one user said.

“The integrity of sister Wei’s character and her independence in love are what many so-called big female protagonists [of other dramas] can only dream of having,” another said.

One top-rated comment on Weibo read: “OK, let’s watch the anti-Japanese dramas they broadcast every day then.”

However, Chinese social commentator Zhang Lijia said she understood the concerns of the people and the authorities.

“I do see some points that the article made. To go far in life, you have to play tricks and be ruthless and nasty to each other. Already there’s moral decline in today’s China,” she said.

Zhang also saw the article’s criticism as a reflection of the current general crackdown, recalling that some conservatives had made similar noises in the past when the political atmosphere was tightened.

For example, a few years ago a senior retired official had criticised young girls with dyed hair clad in sexy outfits on a talent show for being out of line with socialist values.

“These costume dramas are hugely popular and therefore money makers. I’d be very surprised if they are banned. Then, who knows. The top leaders have become less predictable,” Zhang said.

Hating black people is not an uncommon stance today, but most of us still realize it's wrong. People try to excuse all prejudices of the past with "it was a different time!" but seem to forget that there were a hell of a lot of people during those times that didn't hold those prejudices.

Just like knowing homosexuality is wrong but if everyone says your wrong for disagreeing with it, it forms a mob mentality.

Same thing with old prejudices. If everyone in the world is calling one race less than yours and people in high positions of society accepted that notion you would think that's ok.

What Tucker and honest conservatives don't understand is that politicians can never be counted on to lead a country. Throughout history, politicians and businessmen have always been scum. Only religious leaders can guide a society. They do this by giving the masses sound values. Then in a functional democracy, the masses vote out politicians who are too bad. So politicians behave reasonably only for fear of being voted out of office. Without sound religion, all of this breaks down as we see in America.

Nigerian police chief says gay people ‘should leave country’

Chief Superintendent Dolapo Badmos posted Instagram message citing 2014 law banning homosexuality activity

A popular Nigerian police chief has warned homosexuals to flee the country or face the prosecution, according to reports.

Chief Superintendent Dolapo Badmos, spokesperson for the Lagos State Police Command, also called on Nigerians with evidence of homosexual activity to come forward.

The message was posted on her personal Instagram account - which is set to private but has around 125,000 followers - and cites a 2014 law signed by former president Goodluck Jonathan that criminalised same-sex marriage and public displays of affection between gay people.

“If you are homosexually inclined, Nigeria is not a place for you. There is a law (Same-Sex Prohibition Act) here that criminalises homosexual clubs, associations and organisations with penalties of up to 15 years in jail,” Badmus wrote.

“So, if you are a homosexual in nature, leave the country or face prosecution. But before you say, ‘does this matter?’ Kindly note that anything against the law of the land is criminal and all crimes will be punished accordingly no matter how small you think it is.”

She added: “Anyone convicted of entering into a same-sex marriage contract or civil union faces up to 14 years imprisonment. All LGBT candidates in Nigeria should beware.”

Her warning is the “latest reminder of the challenges facing members of the LGBT community” in Nigeria, where the anti-gay law “enjoys broad support among its citizens”, CNN reports.

A recent report by The Initiative for Equal Rights (TIERs) found that around 90% of Nigerians support the continued enforcement of the 2014 law.

Badmos’ post has been liked more than 2,000 times, although not everyone is supporting her stance.

Some commenters “condemned the police for going after homosexuals and ignoring more pressing issues”, reports Nigerian newspaper The Punch.

Others accused the police of being partial, and claimed that “a cross-dresser, who now identifies as transgender, had become a celebrity but was left alone because he was rich”.

Responding to those claims, Badmus posted a message that said: “In view of my last post about homosexuals and the law banning them, some people have been mentioning one particular name (very risky though) to be one.

“Kindly be informed that if you have any evidence or exhibits that can establish the case against him/her, please don’t hesitate to bring it up for a comprehensive investigation.”

Death sentence for Canadian. Poland to suffer next?

Robert Lloyd Schellenberg, a Canadian, was given the death sentence for drug trafficking charges on Monday at a court in Dalian — Beijing’s latest act of retaliation against Canada for the arrest of Huawei CFO Mèng Wanzhou.

AFP reports that “his previous 15-year prison sentence was deemed too lenient, a ruling likely to deepen a diplomatic rift between Ottawa and Beijing.”

Globe and Mail correspondent Mark MacKinnon says that this would be “the first Canadian or American ever executed by the People’s Republic.”

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau this morning told reporters, per CBC:

It is of extreme concern to us as a government, as it should be to all our international friends and allies, that China has chosen to begin to arbitrarily apply [the] death penalty…as in this case facing a Canadian.

A warning for Poland: In related news, nationalistic rag the Global Times reacted to the arrest of a Huawei manager for espionage in Poland, saying (in Chinese) that Warsaw should “pay…a price”:

The whole world is clear that Poland has acted an accomplice to the United States, so we should make Poland suffer a bit (???????? ràng ta chi dian kutóu), and not worry what Western public opinion thinks.

Poland and Polish citizens in China should take this threat seriously — the Global Times has form. On December 12, after the arrest of Meng Wanzhou, the Global Times published a video invective narrated by the paper’s editor, vowing that “China will take revenge if Canada does not restore Meng Wanzhou’s freedom.” As that video was being shot and uploaded, news of the detention of Canadians Michael Kovrig and Michael Spavor was breaking.

My theory is that he calls a National Emergency, it immediately goes to the courts, he reopens the government, and life returns to normal for the time being. His base will be happy that he did something and stood up to the Dems and the unpleasant optics of our TSA and other government workers getting donated food will stop. We will see!

[23/f] My boyfriend [30/m] is a pedophile who does not act on his desires. I am just looking for non-judgmental advice/support. Over a year ago I had found CP on my boyfriend's computer. It was all pee fetish stuff. I already knew he had a pee fetish from adult porn, but obviously I didn't know about the child stuff. I was devastated. I confronted him immediately and he agreed that he would never look at it again. For a few months he had installed a spyware software so I could be sure that I could trust him. He also went to counseling for a while. Anyway, I trust him, but sometimes its just really, really hard. I will think about the day that I found it and how I felt and how he must have felt and it drives me crazy. I sometimes just wonder if he thinks about it or thinks about it when we have sex. I am just looking for any insight that might be helpful. Honesty is appreciated, but no assholes please
There's "criminalizing thoughts" and then there's "possession of actual child pornography," the two aren't exactly equivalent.

I agree that this is absolutely a dealbreak

Luckily neither of us want to have kids together, but we have talked about marriage. I love him way too much to leave him. It's just hard to not criminalize his thoughts

How to begin the new year with Jesus

What a reliable way to go into 2019 held by the hand of Jesus. He is the wisest of all counselors, the strongest of all defenders, the richest of all benefactors and the nearest of all friends. We can trust an unknown future to a known God.

The New Year can begin a new chapter in our lives. We will discuss how to begin the year with Jesus. The magic of Christmas is remembered when God gave one Gift that is above all other gifts, Jesus Christ. The mystery of a new year remains.

Above all else, there must be a personal relationship with Jesus. A daily association with Him can be shared by prayer, by the sacraments and worship. Thank Him for the gift of life for another day, it is an unearned gift. Thank Him for the hope of heaven and the agony He endured on the cross to save us from endless death.

Sunday is the "crown of the week." The worship of God is not to be conferred when it is convenient. It is our reason for existence; honor it with worship. Stewardship – we own nothing personally. All belongs to God who makes life's gifts possible – a temporary loan. In turn we have a standard of offering back to God part of which He has loaned us – a tithe. The last act of stewardship is your will which should be a bequest to your church, your spiritual home in the world. Holy Scriptures are to be read daily to learn about God's will for us. Jesus first, others next, self – last, brings the only tranquility in a less than tranquil world is for all. The gift of Jesus is for all who receive Him. If we accept the Gift, it is our for eternity. Because God loved the world, He gave His Son to mankind forever. Jesus is a gift that you simply receive and accept Him as Savior and Lord. Through Jesus comes salvation, joy, peace, healing, prosperity, happiness and every other good and perfect gift. Receiving Jesus as Savior will make 2019 your best New Year.

God has given many other gifts. Healing (1 Peter 2:24). The gift of peace (John 14:27) provides peace in the midst of trouble and despair. His promise, He will take care of you and meet your needs. Love – nothing can separate you from God's love (Rom 8:35-39). You also have been given eternal life. There is life after death, and as a Christian you have a promised reward in heaven.

We will be hanging up a new calendar as we celebrate the arrival of the New Year. This is the beginning Jesus as Savior of a new chapter in our lives. Receiving Jesus as Savior will make this your best year. He is the only answer.

You are encouraged today to take the gifts God has given you, unwrap and enjoy them. Make them a part of your life all year round. Prepare for a personal revival during 2019. Ask some basic questions and treat them as a kind of personal inventory of the heart.

Macropenis dilemma

The macropenis dilemma refers to the mismatch between the average penis size and the most common ideal penis size in women. Surveys show that a woman's ideal erect penis size is 6.4 inches. This is despite the fact that the average erect penis size is 13.12 cm (1.66 SD); (5.16 inches). An erect penile length measuring 2.5 SD+ more than average is considered a macropenis. Hence, macropenis can be defined as a penis whose erect length is at least 17.27 cm.

This means that a woman's ideal penis size is actually only 1 centimeter away from the medical condition of macrophallism. In other words, women's ideal penis size is for men who are medically defined as being in the abnormal range, hence giving further credence to the Pareto principle.

2 Corinthians 5:21 "God made Him (Jesus) who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in Him (Jesus) we might become the righteousness of God." In other words, we are "made righteous with God" through the righteousness of Jesus Christ. It's imputed to me which is an accounting term. It speaks of God's Divine Ledger. Basically, God took all my unrighteousness, my sin, and placed it on the cross with Christ, then He put that on His side of the ledger. Then He took the perfect righteousness of Christ, and He put it on my side of the ledger. Pretty cool deal, huh? Yeah! You ain't a joking! That's why I'm eternally secure in my salvation because it's not based on my righteousness, no way, it's based on the righteousness of Christ! My righteousness is as filthy rags! His righteousness is perfect, it's complete, it cannot fail. That's why God calls me a "hagios" a "saint" a "holy one" not because of me, are you kidding me, but because of the righteousness of Christ that's "imputed to me." He only sees me as He sees Jesus. Try telling that one to your spouse! It's usually a hard concept to get through to them Biblically, especially if you're arguing, but hey, it's true, deal with it. So, is that kind of righteousness Paul is talking about, that we are to clothe ourselves with, get completely immersed with in our daily battle with satan and demons? Well ...I still don't think so. I say that because the righteousness of Christ is something given to me and the breastplate of righteousness, as we read, is something I put on. One is a gift, the other I do. However, I will say this. I do believe that positional righteousness is something

that does come in handy in our daily struggles, when we fail to put on the breastplate of righteousness, like we should. One guy says this.


"I stand righteous before God because of Christ 's righteousness being imputed to my account. His righteousness will never fail. Regardless of the duration or intensity of the battle, the righteousness of Christ will prevail. Our positional righteousness is not a piece of armor we put on. The saved are clothed in the righteousness of Christ from the moment of salvation, and that never changes. However, we do enter battle bearing the righteousness of Christ. It never leaves us. That brings peace to my heart. I am often weak in the flesh and the enemy is strong. In the heat of battle, while we are prone to stumble and fall, Satan is never able to penetrate the righteousness of Christ. I have been adopted into the family of God. I am counted righteous because of Christ my Savior. I may lose the battle now and again, but His righteousness always prevails. This "imputed righteousness " is the very foundation of the Christian life. This righteousness allows us access to God It opens the door of Heaven to us. It protects us against the eternal fires of Hell. But, it does not protect us from the attacks of the enemy. On the contrary, since the devil knows that he can 't have us because we belong to Christ, he doubles his efforts to defeat us in an attempt to discredit the Savior, the Church, and the God of glory.

Satan comes at us and says, "Look at how you just exploded in anger! Look at how you lied to cover your tracks ! Look at how you lusted after that girl! Some Christian you are! " How do you answer him if his charges are true? You answer by applying Christ 's imputed righteousness: "You are right, Satan, I did just sin. But my eternal life does not depend on my sinless behavior or perfect track record. I am trusting in the blood of Jesus Christ and His righteousness credited to my account. Take it up with Him!"
