Flirty fishing[edit]

We say:

  • Within the Children of God, love bombing included sexual free love practices (which they called "flirty fishing", in reference to the Bible parable of being "fishers of men").

My impression is that "flirty fishing" and "love bombing" are rather more separate. "Flirty fishing" was for the initial capture - once an individual was in the cult and being subject to "love bombing" the ff stage was over. But that's only my impression - I could be wrong so I've made no edit.--BobSpring is sprung! 19:27, 19 February 2011 (UTC)

You can also use explosives for fishing, so it's really all more or less the same. Come to think of it, I'm waiting for the next edition of the Conservative Bible where Jesus engages in some blast fishing of men. --Idiot numbre 188 (talk) 19:52, 19 February 2011 (UTC)

It's not GOD'S love[edit]

Sometimes, I stick "Rationalwiki" into Facebook to see what gets shared around. It occasionally digs up some interesting posts. Scarlet A.pngpostate 14:56, 3 May 2012 (UTC)
