Translation: "My wife divorced me because I'm a sexist asshole and now I'm bitter towards all women."

But apparently men who divorce are still welcome in your churches? Oh, wait, because of women's "malignant narcissism" divorce is always the woman's fault and men are just innocent victims, right?

Fundamentals of Christianity must be reintroduced to our churches
You mean like love, charity, forgiveness, and all that?
Oh no, you mean hate, biogtry, prejudice, intolerance, and all that.
7/7/2012 7:10:36 AM
Well, that's just silly!
7/7/2012 7:23:18 AM
Yaayyyy! More women for us sane people.

I think malignant narcissism is just code for "not wanting to be my slave".
7/7/2012 7:40:16 AM
I know this may sound like a silly question, but, you know, what about all those divorced MEN in church?
7/7/2012 8:24:20 AM
Men who divorce, on the other hand, are cool in God's book. They can still go wherever they like.
And what, exactly, is a "silly" woman? The way Darryl puts it, he seems to have any women who have a sense of humour.
7/7/2012 8:41:40 AM
Still having omnipotence fantasies at the Peterhead, I see.
7/7/2012 8:42:50 AM
Darryl probably couldn't get it up and his wife, in name only, had their marriage annulled for "non-performance."

Well, apparently 'malignant narcissism' is a recognized psychological term. But yes, in the hands of your average fundie, it means pretty much whatever they'd like it to mean.
7/7/2012 8:58:07 AM
How about men who di.. oh right, spearhead. Couldn't choose a more phallic name, could they?
7/7/2012 9:00:53 AM
But do you want them? I mean they did marry a fundy at one point in their lives.
Also, why does he keep putting "silly" in quotation marks?
7/7/2012 9:08:44 AM
Anyone who's been married knows that a marriage "contract" is indeed worth quite a bit in the eyes of the law. There's a wide range of financial benefits.
Anyway, expelling divorced women from churches is a great idea. Ought to cut church attendance by a quarter.
7/7/2012 9:15:33 AM
I would absolutely love it if women around the world realized the inherent misogyny in most religions and abandoned them in droves. Then assholes like Darryl X could bloviate impotently that they can't find any "good" women (i.e. subservient doormats) to marry.
7/7/2012 9:20:17 AM
Divorce technically does not violate a marriage in the eyes of the lord. It simply means that the couple is separated indefinitely. However, remarriage of any party counts as adultery and is therefore a sin.
7/7/2012 9:31:07 AM
He lost me with the sexism, but he has the beginning of a good idea there.
What if all of us encourage churches to expel everyone who gets divorced, or commits adultery, fornication, masturbation, watches internet porn or television?
7/7/2012 9:46:49 AM
So.. what about men who divorce?
7/7/2012 10:41:17 AM
Newt Gingrich. Multiple divorcee.
Your argument, nay, your right to even think the way you do, is invalid.
7/7/2012 10:49:59 AM
Like what others are asking, what if the man in the marriage abandoned the wife for another woman? What do you think should happen to him?
Also, I am not "silly" for thinking myself as an individual person and not some humanoid helpmeet for a man.
7/7/2012 10:59:05 AM
Yeah, it would be nice to reintroduce the fundementals of Christianity: Love, compassion, tolerance...
7/7/2012 11:37:47 AM
What about men who divorce?

Percy Q. Shunn
Well, this is just plain "silly."
7/7/2012 1:49:20 PM
This guy's gonna be pissed when he can't get any. He'll also be pissed when he realizes that marriage involves a legally binding contract that functions apart from religion.
7/7/2012 2:30:49 PM
He's assuming that all divorces are the woman's fault, even though men can and do divorce women for their own reasons.
