Leslie Winkle: Listen, neither of us are neuroscientists, but we both understand the biochemistry of sex. I mean, dopamine in our brains is released across synapses, causing pleasure. You stick electrodes in a rat’s brain, give him an orgasm button, he’ll push that thing until he starves to death.
Leonard Hoffstadter : Well, who wouldn’t?

Pastor Rick Warren: I’m naturally inclined to have sex with every beautiful women I see but that doesn’t mean it is the right thing to do. And why should I rein in my natural impulses?

Ann Coulter is a person who has a knack for the provocative wit and her latest titled The Anus Monologues on the Duck Dynasty business has plenty. In terms of wit my favorite line is this:
Unable to comment on the “Duck Dynasty” controversy last week due to my hectic Kwanzaa schedule, I am able to sweep in at the end and comment on the commentary.
Seriously did anyone actually say the word “Kwanzaa” in 2013? If it wasn’t for the fact that Fitchburg State University has a series of grounded billboard signs on main street celebrating the “Holiday Season” that included on that says “Happy Kwanzaa” I wouldn’t have seen the word at all.
But while Coulter’s piece had many good points there was a very important sentence in the piece, a sentence that in terms of the article was so unimportant that it was put in parentheses but is really the basis of the nature of Religion and its importance. On this 12th day of Christmas it is the perfect closing thought to the season: (emphasis mine)
liberals can’t grasp that God is not our imaginary friend, who says whatever we want Him to say, when we want Him to say it. (I promise you, except for venereal disease and eternal damnation, life would be a lot more fun if we were making it up as we went along.)
That’s one of the basic facts of Christianity, Sin is general…is Fun and Christianity is counter-intuitive.
Who wouldn’t want to eat what and all they want, do what they want, sleeping around with anyone willing, having the stuff you want and have it be better than the next guy all, venting at people who piss you off while having every realize how great you are? All without consequence.
It sounds great until you actually put it into practice.
Think about a teenager, given the chance a kid will:
1. Thinks they are the center of the universe (Pride)
2. Wants everything for themselves (Greed)
3. Is Jealous of what other have (Envy)
4. Doesn’t want to clean their room (Sloth)
5. Throws a temper tantrum easy (Wrath)
6. Will eat candy till they burst (gluttony)
7. Ok lust starts slow but once they hit the right age, jumps near the front
Is this what you want your kid to be. What type of person do we get when we specifically avoid this stuff.
1. What happens if we teach our children to act and achieve at an early age instead of self esteem simply due to existence? They learn a sense of achievement and goals.
2. What happens when we teach them restraint, that they can’t have everything? They learn to be grateful for what they have.
3. What happens if we teach them the difference between what is yours and what is someone else? They learn how to be gracious rather than petty.
4. What happens if we teach the value of hard work vs laziness. They become a person of value both to employers and to themselves and achieve
5. What happens when we teach them them to control their tempers? They are able to socially interact and make friends, who will be able to help them in life.
6. What happens when we encourage restraint at the table, a healthy body and a longer life.
7. And what happens when we teach that Sex is for marriage, that if she’s good enough to sleep with she’s good enough to marry? Not only do you learn to respect women, but your children grow up with a mother & father and a family structure that give them the best shot to make it in life. That life is not all about them.
That’s the baby boomers and liberalism in a nutshell. It’s all about me and we need to abandon the foolishness of religion so we can make heaven on earth and do what we like what they don’t seem to understand is the restraint that comes from religion not only protects us from ourselves but also from the arbitrary standards as fads change with the times.
Obeying God law and accepting Christ’s mercy doesn’t just get us to eternal life, it protects us in this one. It’s not only the right thing to do, it’s the SMART thing to do.
