Response to Trisha's Fornication Comment

Why would they just single you out like that? Were you fornicating at the time?

By the way, the Bible heavily condones fornication, as God created Eve as Adam’s “companion”. There are many many many other references promoting a man “knowing” a woman, especially for the puposes of child bearing. According to Christian dogma, it is only a sin to fornicate while unmarried, and if I remember correctly, you are married.

But then again, the Bible says alot of things, and not very clearly. There are several references in the Bible about the proper way to sell your daughter into slavery, guidelines to owning slaves, raping children, and laying out the conditions when it’s ok to murder someone.


Maybe they thought you were really hot and wanted to fornicate with you, so they were violently reminding themselves it is a sin to think such thoughts. If you told them you were married, it would be a double-whammy, because “Thou Shalt Not Covet Thy Neighbor’s Wife”.

Well, good for you about teaching. As long as you can pay the bills, then go for it.
