Reply To: America’s game: Eternal recrimination and shame

Funny you mention that, Mike. As a non-Christian, I have noticed this quite a lot myself where the church is leading the charge against us. As someone who grew up in a Christian home though, I find it interesting that very few of what they call “sex offenses” are even considered sins in the bible. It seems they have no backing whatsoever. Heck, lying is on the list of the ten commandments, yet nothing sexual is other than coveting a neighbor’s wife (not his daughter though!)

Don’t get me wrong, I am not advocating or endorsing any of these crimes as legitimate. I am merely pointing out that the Christian bible does not condemn them, yet we are considered the biggest sinners of the world.
