News: Raping For Jesus Because Bible

news

News story came out of Florida in which a man and his wife sexually abused an orphaned girl living in their home from the time she was 13 until 18 years old. Their justification? The Bible. Raping for Jesus.Turns out that the couple, Rob and Marie Johnnson, follow many of the same views as guys like Biblical Gender Roles from the Old Testament that allows multiple 'wives' and believes there is no such thing as marital rape.

I think we can all guess what the author is doing while unemployed, watching those all day all night marathons of "19 Kids & Counting". … [Read more...]

Many statistics also tell us that one in four little girls will be sexually “messed with” by the time they are four years old. One in four little boys will be the victims of homosexual abuse.

chickens

by Debi Pearl from her blog - Sara Sue Learns to Yell and Tell Predators are a fact of life in today’s society.My chickens are a good example of this.

Statistics tell us that there are a lot of people who have been sexually abused. If you have been sexually abused, this may be a sensitive subject f … [Read more...]
