Doug Wilson of Blog and Mablog is continuing on with his examination of Aimee Byrd’s book “Why Can’t We Be Friends?”. Now he is claiming that spiritual brothers and sisters in Christ as potential lovers and that is why he always invokes the Pence Rule.
Only if you have a dirty mind and very poor self control Mr. Wilson. Most of us, outside of cult churches, are perfectly able to navigate life with the opposite sex AND be friends without automatically eventually falling into bed with these people. Is your ability to not rape so weakened that merely being alone with the opposite sex is too much to stand?
And what of it if spouses are dead and they are still friends six months later? Nothing. None of Doug’s business or anyone elses.
Sexual tension is not part of every male-female relationshp! It’s sick that he ever thinks that this is normal, because it is just not part of most people’s equasion with the opposite sex. Nothing would ever get done, life would read like one of those bodice-ripping romance novels by Barbara Cartland. Language would be all double entendres.
Doug goes on to say that relationships with the opposite sex must be treated like guns, with the assumption that the gun is alway loaded. Very bad analogy as most adults are not with itchy hair triggers one tiny moment from having sex.
The rest of the piece is just word salad from which very little can be gleaned.
