It's not strange at all.

The abusive spouse (more likely the male) has total physical and mental/emotional control over the victim spouse. I have seen this over and over in the criminal courts.

The guy is charged criminally for physically abusing the victim, who had fled the home with cuts and bruises all over and had run to the police for protection.

And by the time of trial, the victim will testify that it was all her fault, he didn't start it, she loves him.

Fortunately, juries are seeing through this, and there are convictions despite the victim's attempt to get the guy off (and return to a life of abuse).

I was definitely not surprised to learn that you are older than 21. It's hard to change isn't it? I'm still using alternating currents and Tesla died almost 70 years ago.

When did Jesus die?

They do?
Okay, explain this to me and tell me how it's "moral:"
Lions are a social species. Of all the big cats, they are the only ones who continue to live in a family based unit known as a pride.
When lions hunt, they do so by ambush. They usually target a weak member of the herd. How is it moral to target a weak member of a group and then ambush that creature for the purpose of eating it?
If it's not immoral, it's instinct.
If it's not instinct, it's immoral.
Right?
christians target the children and the desperate

the lions are more moral

Telling people they shouldn't even covet or lust for that buxom young neighbor, is like telling somebody not to think of a pink elephant.

The Christian man will not beat his wife at all. The Christian man is commanded to love his wife as Jesus loved the church. How much did Jesus love the church? He died for it. He willingly laid down his life. Likewise, the Christian man must be willing to die to protect his wife if need be.

Abuse in the home only exists when the love of Jesus is absent in the home.

you argue with your own strawman
I realize stupid people try to impress other stupid people by throwing in terms like strawman when it isnt applicable but still K-man, pretty silly. I am not the one that said if something existed science would already have evidence of it. Have you ever considered we just cant see it? For instance I am betting your saggy old man breasts and gut hang so far over your ..ahem..LITTLE karl that you have no idea its there and cant see it. Does that mean it doesnt exist?

I want an exception because I can't reasonably rely on faith as a methodology for finding the truth. It's functionally the same as guessing.
If there is a real god, and it's not the one you believe in, don't you hope it will excuse your incorrect beliefs? Why aren't you scared of that possibility? Faith? Faith seems to work for everyone who has it, regardless of what they have faith in. So, what is the statistical performance of faith?
If I am wrong I hope God take into consideration that I came to know him by a diff name but still did my best to know him and to try to leave this world a little better place than I found it. You will never see me condemn anyone. I will let them know what the Bible says. But my guess is there will be lots of things men of all faiths are wrong about. I trust God and know he knows my heart. I am not worried

All I'm trying to say Kitten is that simply not knowing or not being able to prove something should not automatically make us close minded to possibilities is all.
