The "list"[edit]

We have to make sure it is very accurate considering what we are asserting. I'm glad to see all the references being added, hopefully they are being read for content too. Part of the reason I say this is that Joe Barron guy didn't belong at all. He was caught in an internet sting by a cop pretending to be a 13 y.o. girl. Naughty and nasty, yes, but no sexual act committed, at the very least. ħumanUser talk:Human 22:21, 20 July 2008 (EDT)

What about Todd Bentley? Does he count as a conservative Christian, or just a sociopathic c*nt? Crundy 09:37, 22 September 2008 (EDT)

Adulteress story[edit]

Apparently, there are people other than Schlafly who believe that the story about Jesus and the adulteress to have been fabricated. A Professor Bart D. Ehrman claims to have examined the manuscripts for the Greek New Testament and found that the story isn't there; he apparently believes that it was made up later so that Christians could distance themselves from the Old Testament adultery punishment.

Double standard[edit]

Has anyone ever noticed how it's okay for women to commit adultery but not men? — Unsigned, by: John Galt / talk / contribs

No, actually the exact opposite. Please sign your username next time, so people know who they are conversing with :) -- EWildman (talk) 02:19, 6 March 2011 (UTC)
Seriously, the opposite is true. Uke Blue 03:13, 6 March 2011 (UTC)
What about those milkman jokes? When Clinton & Woods committed adultery, everyone was mad. No one cared when Jennifer Lopez did it. Also, if the book Eat, Pray, Love was about a man, do you think it would be as successful? — Unsigned, by: 24.62.109.225 / talk / contribs
I highly doubt it, considering that it was all about "female liberation". Although,, in actuality, it was as far from feminism as anything, and was, when all's said and done, a celebration of selfishness. How do I sign off this thing? Pardon my "n00bness".
No need to apologize, we were all n00bs once. Use four tildes (~~~~). Innocent Bystander (talk) 09:11, 18 June 2013 (UTC)

Christianity and adultery[edit]

Strictly speaking, Jesus was born from an act of adultery.
