If your right eye makes you stumble, tear it out and throw it from you; for it is better for you to lose one of the parts of your body, than for your whole body to be thrown into hell. 30 If your right hand makes you stumble, cut it off and throw it from you; for it is better for you to lose one of the parts of your body, than for your whole body to go into hell. Matthew 5:29-30
My blogging friend, Sheila Gregoire posted these tweets, and I agreed with her so much that I took a screen shot and posted it on Spiritual Sounding Board’s Facebook page.
A lot of women chimed in in support of Sheila’s comment. And then there was this comment left by a man:

Others also chimed in:
We have a long ways to go if we are unable to convince this Christian man that the onus is on him to control his lusts. And as someone mentioned above, he has daughters of his own – how is he able to not lust after his daughters? By controlling himself. The same control needs to be applied everywhere – not just because they are minors, but because Jesus said so.
Good grief, this makes me upset.
