Am I the only one still miffed that Romney refused to call out BO as the radical that he truly is? Seriously, BO was running ads calling Romney a murderer and Romney was responding that BO "can't manage the economy". No mention of Barry's radical past. No mention of his Rev. Wright. He could have featured that quote that "single payer is our ultimate goal", but didn't. He could have focused on Obama's laziness in negotiations - as reported by Bob Woodward, but no. We're fighting for the survival of the greatest country on earth and Romney showed up to the fight with a water pistol.
This entire HHS scandal shows two things: 1) Liberals feel "entitled" to anything that they want. It's not as if Hobby Lobby refuses to hire anyone using contraception, the company just doesn't want to pay for something that it finds to be immoral. Why can't liberals just pay for things themselves? Why do they always feel that they're entitled to it? 2) The willingness that liberals have to impose their beliefs on others. They could have allowed "opt out" provisions, in the same way that conscientious objectors were allowed the ability to opt out of wars. There's only a fraction of companies that want to be identified as religiously conservative. And for those who didn't get their free contraception, the government could have just provided a tax deduction to employees of those companies.
Some sanity in the world!
The new line among Hollywood is that this is now ok, because women "own it". That's a bit like saying that I'm ok, because I'm no longer the drug buyer, but now I'm the drug dealer. Instead of other people profiting from my weakness, now I'm profiting from theirs. It's just as insidious, if not more so.
"Here's an idea: What about a renewed appreciation for differences, adding a little feminine modesty to engender male restraint?" Hmmm, sounds a bit like "She had it coming dressed that way." -Hulk No, actually, it doesn't and I think that the fact that you're the only one who read it that way, probably indicates a misreading on your part and perhaps you should re-read it. I'm not how you jumped from "engender male restraint" being the same as "an excuse to try her out", but that leap is larger than the Grand Canyon.
How about just evaluating the quote on its own, instead of restating it so that it has a different meaning? Probably, because it would throw off the 'logic' that you would try to use in the subsequent paragraph. In Christianity, the Two Greatest Commandments are 1) Love God and 2) Lover your neighbor as yourself. Of the sins that are particularly bad are those that encourage others to sin. To dress scantily so as to deliberately cause men to sin (presumably for some advantage) is a great evil.
"It's supposed to be something dirty - unclean and needs to be hidden." -Duane Ah, the old straw man argument. That is a typical mis-characterization of Christian thinking that has been out of fashion for probably 200 years. I'm sure that if you visit Amish country, you might find some with this view of sex as a "necessary sin", but I'll bet that if you visited 100 ministers and priests, you'll find 99 that say that sex is neither "dirty", nor "unclean".
There's also plenty of it aimed at men. Take A&F oversized homo-erotic posters that are in plain view as you walk by. Or Calvin Klein's many homo-erotic ads over the years, the worst of being the infamous jeans ad that looked like child porn.
This hypocrite two-step that the media, including advertisers play. When Ben & Jerry's, Home Depot, JCP and others use marketing that is pro-homosexual marriage, they will unquestionably tell you that they are trying to help the cause through their advertisements. But then when you dare suggest that porn-style marketing has an effect on our culture, they run behind this fake line that "we're not trying to influence anybody, we're just following what's already out there". Nice try, but the facts of hypocrisy shoot you right down.
Ever see a little league dad?
In all fairness, in America we consider both bowling and pro bass fishing to be sports. We ought not be making too much fun of soccer.
