Internet, Life, and Marriage: Pence Unveils Campaign To Educate Teens About Dangers Of Premarital Eye Contact (g theonion:WASHINGTON—Emphasizing the importance of providing young people with the skills they need to make good decisions as they mature into adulthood, Vice President Mike Pence held a press conference Thursday to unveil a new campaign educating teens about the dangers of premarital eye contact. “This new initiative will teach our nation’s teenagers the importance of waiting until marriage before looking their partner directly in the eyes,” said Pence, adding that the $75 million “No Peeking”—also known as “Save Your Gaze For Marriage”—campaign will help students resist the social pressure to share glances they often feel long before they’re ready to be joined for life in holy matrimony. “Thanks to the encroaching secular influence of TV, the movies, and, for all we know, the internet as well, today’s young people are constantly bombarded with images of people gazing shamelessly at each other—sometimes even making prolonged eye contact with more than one person. This program encourages them to abstain from that behavior by focusing their eyes on safe alternatives, such as the floor, the middle distance, or a bible passage of their choosing.” Pence also promised that high school students would feel far greater satisfaction by waiting until their wedding night to learn their spouse’s eye color.

Apparently, Bad, and God: 9:43 PM I hope everything is going well I just have a question, I saw your post about "Highly Recommending" everyone to go see "Get Out". My question is, as a Christian, is it right to recommend people to go see something with so much profanity in it? Regardless of it's message, it has 50 F-words, 45 S-words with a lot of others as well. I'm not messaging you to bee mean or anything, I genuinely wanted to know why you recommending it. Thanks! <p><a href="https://proudblackconservative.tumblr.com/post/158051885454/proudblackconservative-inarticulateyelling" class="tumblr_blog">proudblackconservative</a>:</p> <blockquote><p><a href="https://ted-cruise.tumblr.com/post/158051247940/inarticulateyelling-proudblackconservative" class="tumblr_blog">ted-cruise</a>:</p> <blockquote><p><a href="https://proudblackconservative.tumblr.com/post/158051113654/proudblackconservative-this-super-evangelical" class="tumblr_blog">proudblackconservative</a>:</p><blockquote> <p><a href="https://inarticulateyelling.tumblr.com/post/158050867128/this-super-evangelical-guy-is-always-trying-to" class="tumblr_blog">inarticulateyelling</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p><a href="https://proudblackconservative.tumblr.com/post/158050593589/this-super-evangelical-guy-is-always-trying-to" class="tumblr_blog">proudblackconservative</a>:</p> <blockquote><p>This super evangelical guy is always trying to challenge what I watch because it has swears or sex in it and it’s pretty annoying. I’m a grown woman. I’ll decide what’s appropriate for me to watch and where my conscience falls as a Christian.</p></blockquote> <p>Apparently you can’t be Christian if you watch movies with profanity. Lol.</p> </blockquote> <p>Like I could bring up how even Jesus used really strong language in his day (“Brood of vipers” isn’t exactly a compliment), but I don’t want to get into a whole thing. I just want him off my back so I tried to keep it polite and civil and just say I like the story and I believe a good story makes up for some profanity.</p> </blockquote> <p>i’d block him if he continues to harass you about it, someone tried doing this to me and trying convince me that turkish people don’t have souls on a fandom blog </p></blockquote> <p>Oh my word he’s still at it.</p><p>“I’m not saying that a film should be necessarily thrown away if it has profanity in it. I have seen many movies with redeeming qualities and with profanity in them, but they are all edited so the profanity is removed. <br/>If it’s wrong for a Christian to say those words, wouldn’t it also be wrong to voluntarily pay money to hear those words? If Jesus wouldn’t say the words, I’m pretty sure He wouldn’t pay money to have someone say those words to Him for the sake of entertainment. <br/>What if it wasn’t profanity. What if it was sexuality? Is it OK to see a film with 50 F-words, but not OK to see a movie with sex scenes? Or are they both OK? <br/>Just trying to figure out your position on it. 🙂”</p><p>I’m screaming. He’s an old friend and I really am trying to be respectful and kind but I really don’t know where else this conversation can go. I’m pretty much done explaining myself to him. He doesn’t have to agree. I’ve never tried to pressure him into watching movies with profanity, so I think he needs to respect my space. I do believe it’s important for Christians to hold each other accountable, but there’s a line between doing that and being annoying and judgmental.</p></blockquote> <p>OH MYLANTA.</p><p>&ldquo;Profanity has changed, yes. But I think we can both agree that profanity today is something a Christian should never say. If a Christian went around saying the F word, I would know that they are very weak in their faith of at all, a Christian. <br/>Also, the people who determine what profanity is&hellip;is the secular culture itself! It says &quot;Strong Language&rdquo; in the rating for a reason. And it&rsquo;s rated by a secular culture, not Christians. <br/>So if the secular culture itself labels a word as &ldquo;bad&rdquo; then it is ever more &ldquo;off limits&rdquo; for a Christian to use because even the lost people says it&rsquo;s a &ldquo;bad word.&rdquo;</p><p>So I really don&rsquo;t think Jesus would take part in phrases that even the lost world would say are bad. <br/>And yes, they do use the Lord&rsquo;s name as a cuss words in the film, so that should be an immediate red flag. </p><p>See the problem is, where to draw the line. You say sex scenes are OK of they are relevant to the story. Where do you draw the line? <br/>What if there is an incredible movie about a porn star who gives their life to Christ. Well, to be relevant to the story, they show some of the porn that took place. It&rsquo;s relevant to the story and it&rsquo;s important to know. <br/>So, If that is wrong but the small sex scene is OK&hellip;Who draws the line? <br/>Do you draw the line? What if your line is farther than mine? Am I wrong? Are you wrong?<br/>We can&rsquo;t both be right. <br/>See, I don&rsquo;t believe WE get to draw where the line goes. Christ drew the line a long time ago. <br/>&ldquo;Abstain from even the appearance of Evil&rdquo; 1 Thessalonians 5:22. <br/>I dont think that involves F words and sex scenes&hellip;regardless of the story. <br/>What I&rsquo;m saying is, as a Christian, I dont think it&rsquo;s right in any way to pay money and voluntarily listen to profanity and watch sex scenes. I think we can both agree that both of those are things the Lord would not approve of for a Christian.<br/>And if we try to say what is &ldquo;too much&rdquo; for us, who determines that? It must be God who draws where the line is. <br/>Do you see what I&rsquo;m saying?&ldquo;</p>

Memes, Oblige, and When You See It: NO MATTER HOW EDUCATED, TALENTED RICH OR COOL YOU BELIEVE YOU ARE HOW YOU TREAT PEOPLE ULTIMATELY TEus ALL INTEakut 1 ENERATHING We debate just to be right, not to make it right. We let our insecurities interfere with our actions. We moan about posts on social media but then we go back to our lives & do nothing about it. We call other people fake but then do nothing real. Just because you speak truth to power doesn't mean you are better than those who chat sh*t. Power is what we take, power is what we have already, power is what we give away by doing nothing when it matters. We pray to what we call god but can't agree, what or who founded humanity. At the same time we pray for murdered children, then act surprised when our prayers don't save more children's lives. Because we sit & read our books of faith, with our clean hands & pure hearts despising those who do dirty deeds, those who use structural violence to organise their greed, but yet we aren't willing to get our hands broken to heal broken souls or replace broken systems. Do you think you are better because you abstain from violence, but you never do anything when you see it happening. You see it happening on your phone, videos of people getting raped & shot, films about injustice & you cry rivers, but your tears are just fears of your own lies, you are feeling sorry for yourself & your own mortality. That's what you think when you see fatalities, you continuously question others morality, but then go back to your life because freedom fighting doesn't fit your schedule practically. So what if you meditate, how is that helping others starving? So what if you live on a desert island, off the grid with self sustainability & autonomy, how does that make the wars stop? You know they are out there. Once you make an observation you have an obligation. Will you help to build a better nation, or let devastation manifest during your hesitation. Ask yourself honestly are you doing the best you can to be a beautiful human being, or are you just doing the best you can to seem beautiful while condemning others, knowing about suffering but striving to achieve material dreams, killing others to buy "beautiful things" chakabars
