By eroding their sense of shame we’ve made immorality normal, not only in the world but also in the forbidden squadron. …their new Christian friends recommended some of the movies Fletcher had been wondering if he should now avoid. I was delighted one of them said, “This is a great movie–only one sex scene, and the f-word’s only used a few times.” ‘Titanic’ is one of my favorites. How many Christian young people have watched it in their own homes? Think of it, Squaltaint. Suppose someone in the youth group said to the boys, ‘There’s an attractive girl down the street. Let’s get together and go look through her window and watch her undress and lay back on a couch and pose naked from the waist up. Then this girl and her boyfriend will get in a car and have sex–let’s get as close as we can and listen to them and watch the windows steam up.’ The strategy would never work. They’d know immediately it was wrong. But you can get them to do exactly the same thing by using a television instead of a window. That’s all is takes! Think of it, Squaltaint. Every day Christians across the country, including many squadron leaders, watch women and men undress and commit acts of fornication and adultery the Enemy calls an abomination.We’ve made them a bunch of voyeurs! Churches full of peeping toms.
We always imagine some future self that won’t ever get pissed off — that’ll always go to bed on time, always brush our teeth, always enjoy mind-blowing sex with our spouse on Tuesday night. And yet, Stephen Hawking begs to differ: "We are just an advanced breed of monkeys on a minor planet of a very average star."
The rushing relief was like the first drag of a cigarette. Btw, if you don't smoke too much, the final drag off a cigarette is a powerful nerve tonic. Highly recommended. I've smoked five or six cigarettes my entire life, and each one was fucking awesome. I seriously hope I don't get cancer.
