I deny the virgin birth in the context in which it is presented. It has nothing to do with sex or whether Joseph and Mary copulated or not before Jesus was spawned. the Immaculate Conception is more of a Roman Catholic fixation than anything else supported by Scripture.

There are no two ways about it: the Bible says no sex out of marriage. Sexuality in the proper context as one of the main foundations of Christianity and most other faiths. That's why most of those people you guys consider backwards have such tight families and such low divorce rates.
But you people chose to follow the peddlers the wanted to sell you a bunch of porn videos.
Whiskey Tango Foxtrot?

You don't hear about the 12-year old Muslima who chose not to become the fourth wife of her father's 70-year old cousin...or the young Muslima who wanted to divorce that 70-year old husband...or the teen Muslima who was raped and then convicted of fornication...now, do you?

There's a reason, Bob.

But go ahead and prize that misogynistic, freedom-hating, 6th century way of life.

Do not agree. it's not mentioned in the earliest books of the New Testament and wasn't really a widely accepted concept until about the second century AD. Sounds to me like something someone just pulled out of their behind and has nothing to do with Christianity other than the fact that most people tend to fixate on anything sexual as it is a salacious an interesting subject.

Apparently you need to dust off a history book.

Premarital sex or sex with people other than your spouse is hardly a new idea. It's happened for centuries and centuries and in many cultures, has been pretty acceptable. Looks at the Brits. These were some of the most sexually open people in all of history. Lord Byron, Oscar Wilde, Carrington, hell, Henry the VIII. As for America, you're incorrect again.

"Marriage and birth records from the late 1700s reveal that between 30 to 40 percent of New England brides were pregnant before marriage."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Premarital_sex#B...

"The sexual revolution did not start in the free-loving 1960s as is commonly thought, a University of Florida researcher says. It began with the “silent generation” of the 1940s and ‘50s, which as its moniker implies, didn’t talk much about sex."

http://www.research.ufl.edu/publications/expl...

Furthermore, statistically men have always had more sexual partners than women, so why don't you spend any time chiding men who subscribed to this so-called sexual revolution? Seven out of 10 have admitted to using pornography, compared to 4 out of 10 women.

Studies have shown that societies in which men are more sexually repressed, there are higher instances or a likeliness for rape and other sexual mistreatment.

I think you're very misinformed and deluded about the reality of sexual behavior.

Not at all. The life I lead is pretty much "by the book". I have religion and people who set good examples for me to thank for that and that is why I value the faith.

For others? They are too far gone to ever understand any of this so I don't waste my time on them. That's why they can abort to their heart's content, sodomize to their hearts content and engage in whatever instant gratification behaviors the Jews told them to. Just leave me alone and except for my paying for your abortion voucher, leave my wallet alone.

No, you are the one who is deluded by your Jewish masters and the communist sleeper cells who invaded this country in the 1950's.

READ BELOW. This is a passage written on another board by an educated Muslim. This was also the way ordinary Christian women comported themselves prior to when people like you and Sandra Fluke were brainwashed into being the tarts you are today.

Until 1960, this was the reality for Catholic women as well. It still is the reality for Catholic women outside the West.

========

I was raised muslim and grew up in 4 different middle eastern countries. In all my years living abroad I didn't once hear of anyone having premarital sex. Its important to consider that the social circles I travelled in were very wealthy, well-educated and "westernized" and thus called liberal muslims. The liberalization of muslims is very interesting in that they do take in elements of western culture such as education and relative gender equity but they always seem to stop short at sex. This class of the muslim population doesn't adhere to the old school social order where men and women are segregated. Men and women work along side each other, form close friendships and even date! While they may fool around and partake in romantic gestures- sexual activity is reserved solely for after marriage. From what I have seen and the discussions I have had, muslims- especially those who are educated look at western sexual culture in a very negative light. What we perceive sexual liberation as modern and progressive they view our casual sexual dalliances as primitive and borderline barbarian. That westerners can't keep their libidos in check is looked upon as a serious lack in decency, sophistication and civility.

Prole Models: America's elites take their cues from the underclass

Charles Murray

--Scholar Charles Murray writes that a major reason for the coarsening of American life is that the creative minority has devolved into competing cultural elites. Instead of guarding the moral, intellectual, and artistic heritage of society, they follow baser artists.

That American life has coarsened over the past several decades is not much argued, but the nature of the beast is still in question. Gertrude Himmelfarb sees it as a struggle between competing elites, in which the left originated a counterculture that the right failed to hold back. Daniel Patrick Moynihan has given us the phrase "defining deviancy down," to describe a process in which we change the meaning of moral to fit what we are doing anyway. I wish to add a third voice to the mix, that of the late historian Arnold Toynbee, who would find our recent history no mystery at all: We are witnessing the proletarianization of the dominant minority.

The language and thought are drawn from a chapter of "A Study of History," entitled "Schism in the Soul," in which Toynbee discusses the disintegration of civilizations. He observes that one of the consistent symptoms of disintegration is that the elites--Toynbee's "dominant minority"--begin to imitate those at the bottom of society. His argument goes like this:

The growth phase of a civilization is led by a creative minority with a strong, self-confident sense of style, virtue and purpose. The uncreative majority follows along through mimesis, "a mechanical and superficial imitation of the great and inspired originals." In a disintegrating civilization, the creative minority has degenerated into elites that are no longer confident, no longer setting the example. Among other reactions are a "lapse into truancy" (a rejection, in effect, of the obligations of citizenship), and a "surrender to a sense of promiscuity" (vulgarizations of manners, the arts, and language) that "are apt to appear first in the ranks of the proletariat and to spread from there to the ranks of the dominant minority, which usually succumbs to the sickness of 'proletarianization."

That sounds very much like what has been happening in the U.S. Truancy and promiscuity, in Toynbee's sense, are not new in America. But until a few decades ago they were publicly despised and largely confined to the bottom layer of Toynbee's proletariat--the group we used to call "low-class" or "trash," and which we now call the underclass. Today, those behaviors have been transmuted into a code that the elites sometimes imitate, sometimes placate, and fear to challenge. Meanwhile, they no longer have a code of their own in which they have confidence.

A small example will illustrate the broader phenomenon. In 1960, four-letter words were still unknown in public discourse. Among the elites, they were used sparingly even in private. Free use of vulgar language among adults was declassé. Now switch to the fall of 2000 and a Sports Illustrated article about the Oakland Raiders, in which the author conveys the reason for the new coach's success by quoting the aperçu of one of Oakland's star players: "He don't take no s---, and he knows his s---."

One significant aspect of the editorial choice to publish the quote is that the editors of Sports Illustrated, a glossy, upscale magazine, had no reason to think they would offend their readership. Everyone does it--as indeed everyone does. Another significant aspect is that the editors could leave the grammar untouched without worrying that they would be accused of condescension toward the player who was the identified source of the quote.

Most striking of all, the player's observation was quoted approvingly. The writer sees the words as pithy and stylish--as they are, in their way.

If pithiness and style are the sole criteria for selecting what to publish, the writer and editors were guilty of no lapse of judgment. Technical mastery of craft is not at issue here, just as it is not at issue for "South Park" or the average MTV video. At issue is the cultural significance of choosing to approve the vulgar and the illiterate, both of which used to be classic indicators of the underclass.

Respectfulness toward, and imitation of, underclass behavior extend to the other classic signals that used to distinguish nice people from riff-raff. Appearance? The hooker look in fashion, tattoos, and body piercing is the obvious evidence, although Toynbee would probably see as much significance in wearing jeans to church. I find the intriguing element here to be the respectfulness extended toward underclass appearance. No one in the public eye calls any kind of dress "cheap" or "sleazy" any more.

Sexual behavior? As late as 1960, sleeping with one's boyfriend was still a lower-class thing to do. Except in a few sophisticated circles, a woman of the elites did it furtively, and usually with the person she expected to marry. Behavior that is now considered absolutely normal was considered sluttish in 1960.

Family? The divorce rate in 1960 was only a notch higher than it had been in the first recorded figures from 1920. It happened among members of the dominant minority, but rarely and with extreme reluctance. As for living together without being married and having babies without marrying the father, language alone conveys their change in status over the years. People used to shack up; now they cohabit. The woman used to have a bastard, then an illegitimate child; now she has a nonmarital birth.

Language, appearance, sex, and family: Each of the signs by which we used to recognize a member of the underclass fails today. But the proletarianization of the dominant minority has broader implications than changes in social norms. What we are witnessing is the aftermath of a collapse of the code of the elites, creating a vacuum in which underclass behavior takes on the elements of a code.

By code I mean your internal yardstick for tracking how you measure up to a standard that is accepted by those whose approval you seek. I will focus here on the code of the gentleman as it evolved in this country, where it had nothing to do with being rich or wellborn. To be an American gentleman meant that one was brave, loyal and true. When one was in the wrong, one owned up and took one's punishment like a man. One didn't take advantage of women. One was gracious in victory and a good sport in defeat. One's handshake was more binding than any legal document. When the ship went down, one put the women and children into the lifeboats and waved goodbye with a smile.

They used to be rules. Now they are jokes. Some men still live by them--there is a lot of stealth virtue going around--but they are embarrassed to say what they are doing. The code of the gentleman has collapsed, just as the parallel code of the lady has collapsed.

The collapse of old codes leaves a vacuum that must be filled. Within the elites, the replacement has been tenets, broadly accepted by people across the political spectrum, that tell us to treat people equally regardless of gender, race, or sexual preference, to be against poverty and war, and to be for fairness and diversity. These are not bad things to be against and for, respectively, but the new code, which I will call ecumenical niceness, has a crucial flaw. The code of the elites is supposed to set the standard for the society, but ecumenical niceness has a hold only on those people whom the elites are willing to judge--namely, one another. One of the chief tenets of ecumenical niceness is not to be judgmental about the underclass.
