Second Thots

Sometimes one has to step back, take pause, and have some "second thots"

Jesus, the Huffington Post, and adultery

I came across this item in the Huffington Post about how viewing porn leads to marital infidelity.

Didn't someone named Jesus say the same thing about 2000 years ago?

Matthew 5:27-30:

[27] "You have heard that it was said, `You shall not commit adultery.'
[28] But I say to you that every one who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart.
[29] If your right eye causes you to sin, pluck it out and throw it away; it is better that you lose one of your members than that your whole body be thrown into hell.
[30] And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away; it is better that you lose one of your members than that your whole body go into hell."

This is off-topic, but I wanted to say tell you this about your courageous leap into the fray with all those raving moonbats over on the Macleans site, in the comments about Justin Beiber's pro-life views.

I didn't read every single one of the comments - there were a lot of them there - but I agreed with everything in yours that I read. You are right, morally and factually.

Just wanted to let you know you're not alone. Sometimes the mainstream media and dull-witted people with anger management issues and lots of time on their hands to post web comments can make us pro-lifers forget that.

I took a couple of hit-and-run shots at some of your dumber opponents (and it was hard to choose), but I'm reluctant to wade into such matters with full force these days. I wind up feeling like I'm wandering through an asylum trying to convince the lunatics that they aren't Napoleon.

You did some good work over there. Thank you.

Thanks, Zirbert. That's very kind of you.
