    I agree on the “respect women, and that they can and should control their impulses” part

    I also agree that censorship would create howls of outrage. There is an ammendment that covers that.

    Dear O.C.: “jet fuel” is kerosene and will not run in most “race cars”, except the new Audi diesels. Your ignorance on that issue is likewise applicable to “pornography” like “Playboy” which publishes some of the best articles, and has for years, DEFENDING WOMEN’S RIGHTS!


    As “pornography” in MOST cases has actually been a release to PREVENT attacks on women, or little boys, maybe cassocks should be banned? The most violence promoting religions in history have always been the ones most afraid of “nudity” or “sexuality”, and the most repressive of “freedom”, and women’s rights or equality. (Think allowing women priests as just one example.)

    Adult porn and pre-marital sex are legal and moral.


    Rape is not.


    Now why don’t you run off and help some of your church’s priests fight off their urges and leave those of us here on planet earth alone.

    ^you’re like a one dimensional cartoon character. First, you sound like quite the authority on pornography. To speak so definitively you must have massive experience, but you never answered my question of months ago; what kind of pornography do you masturbate to?

    there is a big hole in your argument. the porn I watch has no women in it at all, never has.

    and what does having passionate sex “like a wild animal in heat” cause you to use terms like ‘degenerate’ and ‘male hating’.

    sounds like you have big problems with sex, women and the first amendment.

    ^^Prior to 494 women could be ‘priests’ and held high offices. the theological reason that women can’t be priests, that OC doesn’t want to “get into”, as well as why priests can’t marry is / was quite simply a land grab by the church. It worked quite well too. there’s a little cathedral on 5th avenue and 40th street on my little island that must be worth a fortune – and they don’t even pay taxes on the land, while they take over 4 billion taxpayer dollars per year.

    Women cannot be priests; they are not penis-havers.

    Women can use their lives and bodies as they choose.


    It’s not for you or your twisted “church” to decide.

    Orthodox Catholic said, "Women are not sex toys. They don’t exist for you to have a fun weekend getting your rocks off. "


    Well, yes. Yes, they are. But only for us rich conservative CEOs. You probably don’t have much money if you have to resort to that “loved and respected” junk. Either that or you’re a Liberal.

    I’ll answer your question about pornography when you tell me how many women you have screwed and left up the creek, how many you have forced to have an abortion because you didn’t want to man up and be father to the child you made, and how much porno you use on a regular basis and what kind it is."

    women used and left up the creek = zero

    women forced to have an abortion = zero

    children made=Zero (define ‘made’ as ‘conceived’ which is how I believe you meant it).

    use of porno = almost daily

    women lied to to get into their pants=zero

    It seems you are one dimensional. the Fact that you seem to think that choosing to be a sex toy (male or female) is somehow mutually exclusive from respect pretty much shows that.

    love takes many forms, sex takes many forms and it is not up to you to define or judge other peoples sex lives (or kinks for that matter. And missionary, pro-creative only sex is definitely a kink.

    ORTHODOX: You are the strangest liberal I’ve ever run across.

    And I mean that in the “you don’t fit the mold” sort of way. Because all liberals are strange.

    Maybe your moniker should be “Paradox Catholic”?

    Well luckily, while this Country was founded on Judeo/Christian values, it’s laws and framework stem strickly from the Constitution, not the Bible, as you would have it.

    well, it looks like orthodox catholic is NOT a man of his word. I answered his questions honestly and openly, for which he said he would answer mine. he’s posted since my answers, but didn’t fulfill his side of the bargain.

    “How many women have YOU lied to in order to just get into their pants and have a good time?”


    Zero.


    My loving, intelligent, beautiful wife and I enjoy a faithful, monogamous marriage, free of religion, and built on a foundation of trust that was gained not by lacy-frocked religionists, but by learning about our sexuality with freedom and lack of guilt as young people.

    Orthodox Catholic asks “How many women have YOU lied to in order to just get into their pants and have a good time?”


    Uh…..all of them.
