@lady atlas. If you stop ranting long enough, you may notice that in my original post I also recommended she speak with a councilor. Some people have self esteem issues or have been molested or have had bad experiences that cause them to make bad decisions.
Sometimes abused women subconsciously seek out abusive men, thinking they don't deserve better or because they have low self esteem or because that's all they know.
Stop hijacking this poor woman's post.
Either help out or shut up.
If you had read my post, I allude to those factors by saying that she needs to give herself time to heal, be slower and more careful in the dating game, take self-defense classes, which would help raise her self-esteem, and learn to avoid certain types of guys.
I'm agreeing with you! You'd see that if you'd look beyond your own snarky attitude! Why should she take advice from a jerkoff like you?
Either actually read a post or shut up.

People are invited to "Convert", but no one is pressured or coerced. We build homes, schools and wells to help people better their lives.
No one is saying "Here's a house and clean water, but you don't get it until I see you in church Sunday morning!" If you believe that then you are truly deluded.
If "Your Church" would say they are the only "Real" church, than that is nothing but vanity and hubris on their part. Recently in my community the Assembly of God church was having financial troubles. They received a check for $3,000.00 from the local Methodist church to help them out.
If I were to ask you how to get to New York City, you would give me directions from your home town. If you asked me the same question, I'd give you directions from where I live. We're all traveling toward the same destination, but there are many different ways to get there.
It sounds like you've had some bad experiences with one or two churches and you think they are all alike.
Don't judge everyone by the actions of a few extremists. There are nut jobs in every organization.
But again, I hear rants about religion and God, but no suggestions for the poor woman in the original post. You have in fact hijacked her post in order to push and argue your own anti-religion agenda.
What do you suggest she do?
Oh, really?
YOU have hijacked this thread with your own PRO-religious agenda, just like many phony church folks do. Shows no matter how "welcoming" and "helpful" ( translation: nosy busybodies) church folks pretend to be, eventually, you better believe what they believe or you're "the devil." Exactly how welcome would a Jew be in your church? A Muslim? A Hindu? A Buddhist?
Your suggestion? "Join a church and wait for God to hop down from the sky and maaaa-gically bring you a good man."
Right. She might as well wait for Santa Claus.
If you had actually read my response to her instead of jumping in with a whole bunch of religious crap, my advice to her was:
-Get counseling.
-Give herself time to heal from her past abuse and realize that what happened was NOT her fault and that she deserves better treatment
-Go slowly in the dating game and learn to spot red flags
-Take self-defense courses
-Avoid dating sites; all the pictures and profiles are fake anyway
It's a lot better than blasting her and blaming the victim and telling her it's her fault that men can't keep their hands to themselves and that they are supposed to hit her because "the poor poor men can't help it." and telling her to pray to a God that did nothing but float there and watch while she suffered.

God is taken for granted, but He ain't there to touch a person who refuses to eat their vegetables or religious agnostics like Taoists or Buddhists (woo hoo! He isn't there to send them to hell), and He's not responsible for your schizophrenia, I'll tell you your God: God isn't a person, the person doesn't exist, despite its identity to be unknown and unknowable God is extremely beautiful rivers, forests, mountains and monkeys and tribes are talking to it worshipping monkeys and nature, and atheists won't allow nature in their lives nor will they have vision and see wonder and beauty in the truth and in grass, rain and a river, agnostics don't have to but they can like it, but an atheist thinks it's not a miracle and no truth is despite evidence to the contrary.

Jenna, it sounds to me like you're blaming god for your bad choices.

Were these men, men of god?
Did you follow scripture during the courtship?
Did you ask god for guidance or just expect god to give you what you felt you deserved?
We are given free will. God does not choose how we use that will and it is not god's fault when we make bad choices.
You can not prove god's existence or lack thereof. You can only show your faith which appears weak.

I don't have a "Pro-religious Agenda". I don't have an agenda at all.

I never said anything about "God hopping down from the sky and maaaa-gically bring you a good man."

You assume too much.

I merely suggested that a change in venue might be in order.

The type of people that hang around in singles bars have different values and points of view than those who go to church.

She might do just as well joining a pottery class at the local college.

My point is, TRY BEING AROUND A DIFFERENT CROWD. Picking from the same tree gets you the same fruit. One definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.

I agree with all of your suggestions above except for avoiding dating sites. I met my spouse on yahoo singles and we've been married 13 years. You just need to be VERY selective and weed out the weirdos.

If/when you meet someone in person, do it in a public place with lots of people around, never alone in a secluded area. Have a friend make a "Bail out call" on your cellphone during the date. If the guy is a creep or there are too many red flags then you can say it's an emergency and bail. If things are going well, then you can always say it was just a friend and continue your night.

I merely suggested church, YOU'RE the one that went ape-sh*t on me, not the other way around. Go back and read the posts.

As for Hindus, Jews, and Muslims, all are welcome to our church. We do not discriminate.

When I travel, I often attend services at whatever faith is predominant in that country, assuming they will let me in.

It is interesting to see a different point of view.

All of us are on different paths, but the destination is the same.

Perhaps all the hate and bigotry you see comes from within yourself. "To the jaundiced eye all things look yellow"

You sound like a very bitter person, you might want to try some counselling yourself.

Good luck on your prayers. Maybe you find out life is not all about you.

Another jerkoff blaming the victim.
So I guess these poor poor men just COULDN'T HELP THEMSELVES! They just couldn't resist raping her like a DECENT man could have. These men just HAD to hit her, right? They had NO CHOICE but to abuse her, right?
Are men just driven by FATE to beat, rape and use women? What, is that God's will or something?
"Maybe you find out life is not all about you."
Yeah, it's all about the poor, poor men who had no control of their evil actions! They had no free will whatsoever. It's all instinct.
Right. Go ahead and justify mysogony.
You'll see an increase in women with guns willing to blow these guys' brains out.

My suggestions to her were similar to yours without all the religious claptrap muddying it up. You need to go back and read THOSE posts.
"Perhaps all the hate and bigotry you see comes from within yourself." Bahh. It comes from churches who exclude others based on little more than differing beliefs and tell them that they're "going to hell" or they're "the devil".
You are really putting one on when you say a MUSLIM would be "welcome in your church". I'd put money on it that not ALL your fellow members feel that way!
So you can quit piling on the pretend piousness, Ms. "Holier-than-thou". You're the one that needs "counselling" for believing in some "guy in the sky."

SMDH. What a bunch of garbage.
Plenty of these so-called "men of God" hide abusive acts behind their religion. They spend Sunday night through Saturday nights beating their spouses, pray for forgiveness on Sunday morning, and then start all over again.
"God told me that women are weak vessels, so I have the God-given right to use women like puppets, robots, or punching bags."
If we are given such "free will" as you say, then didn't the men that abused this woman ALSO have the FREE WILL to KEEP THEIR HANDS TO THEMSELVES and remember that a c*ck is not a battering ram or control device?
Or is it "God's will" that these poor men just "can't help it"?
And if you "can not prove god's existance or lack thereof" then WHERE IS HE/SHE/IT?
WHERE?
WHERE?

I pity you for being so filled with hate and venom.

And FYI he have had people from other faiths visit our church. I live in a small town and there aren't any Muslims living near, but believe it or not, not every one hates everyone else, like you seem to.

I will not argue with you anymore.

Have fun enjoying your hateful miserable pitiful existence.

God should concentrate more on saving innocent kids from dying of cancer, hunger, poverty, and war.
But nahh, humans and our little problems don't mean much to a God who has a whole infinate universe to create and destroy.

Ive been there. Mostly. No help from authorities, lost everything so far...except my kids. My house is the last thing left and its going soon. Abuser still able to contact me through the prison system even w a no.contact order which is not enforceable. Dissolved my tpo because I didnt seen scared enough. The harassment order...dissolved. He plead guilty but no arrest. I got no help and the police have tear gassed my home twice but refused to arrest him when I called. The reality is theres no real help. Cops are not all trained in violence or do most of them even care. No matter what I do and where I turn is another roadblock. I dont know what to say except I understand why you you feel this way. I do believe in God because I do and know theres more to it than.I can see yet. Im taking this past 8 years of crap and going to try to change it from as small as helping anyone I know w what I couldnt get help with for lack of knowing. I hope for you that God shows you something to see because he can if you believe or not. I believe and Ive still gitten nowhere. I know if people havent gone through anything of the same nature they should educate themselves before they lecture. They have no idea or it wouldnt be the number one crime under reported in America. I hope good finally comes your way.

Jenna, I realize it's been a while since the posts began, but God won't send you a man: He can only help you make the right choices. I know, you've been hurt a lot in the past because of your past boyfriends' choices to use you, but if you ask god what qualities there are that would make a guy good for you, then it will be so much easier for you to find a man who will genuinely love you. My own mom went through two divorces, the second was from my abusive ex-stepdad. Then she prayed that God would help her discern what she needed as a partner, and she ended up with my current stepdad. If you find yourself not finding anyone who has the qualities you need, then putting yourself in a different environment may help.
