Woman Burned To Death For Refusing Marriage Proposal

Woman Burned To Death For Refusing Marriage Proposal

And there are some whiny, cry-baby men who think THEY have single life harder – news flash, (Link): you don’t have it worse, men: men usually are not murdered by jealous women over turning down dates or proposals.

While I’d say that the root of this case involves a lot of misogyny and patriarchy, I think perhaps a small factor is an over-emphasis upon marriage.

Perhaps if cultures like this one were taught that being single and/or celibate are perfectly fine lifestyles to live, we wouldn’t see people feel so pressured to marry, and they would realize they can control their sexual urges. Therefore, women would not be killed for turning down dates, requests for sex, or marriage proposals.

You don’t have to be married, or have sex, to enjoy life or be happy and content. (I am not knocking a desire to be married, you realize, only saying if it does not happen for you, you will survive – and realize you can enjoy life without marriage or sex.)

Dollars to doughnuts that everyone in this news story was Muslim.

If so, I’d like to say again I see striking parallels between Islamic attitudes and behaviors towards women as I do from some gender complementarian or Quiverfull Christian groups, as well as sexist men and MRA (Men’s Rights Activists) groups – they all treat women like second-class citizens to be controlled by men and are considered to have value only in- so- far as they breed like rabbits and/or provide men with sex.

    Baptist Preacher Hires His Mistress To Set His Wife On Fire

    Baptist Preacher Hires His Mistress To Set His Wife On Fire

    This news story is another indicator of how the Christian “equally yoked” teaching is bunk: I’d rather marry an Atheist guy who would NOT burn me alive than marry (and be “equally yoked” to) a Christian preacher who would hire his MISTRESS to set me on fire.

    (This article says this MARRIED Christian also stole money from his elderly mother. What a P.O.S.)

    Also note how being married does NOT, contra what Christians teach, make a person more loving, responsible, godly, or mature.

    And why is a 33 year old woman having an affair with a 71 year old man? GROSS.

    (Yes, it’s (Link): totally gross). I guess she was just using him for his money – this article says he bought her a new car and paid her bills.

    You quite obviously do not have to be godly or perfect to merit a spouse, as this jerk creep guy was married. (A lot of Christians teach that you have to earn a spouse by being a good person or by being godly or by being more “whatever.”)

    That so many losers, deviants, and creeps get spouses, (even so many losers who profess belief in Christ), it goes to show that no, you do not have to achieve some level of perfection or godliness before God will send you a spouse.

    Also note that both cheaters in this story are MARRIED. Christians often depict un -married women as being harlots who set out to bed married men (usually, though not always, this is done under the “Billy Graham Rule”), when in fact, it’s usually married people who have affairs with other married people.

    How mind-blowing is married Christian sex (something that Christian assert) that this married Christian man was apparently seeking nooky with another woman (I presume he was boinking the other lady)?

    Three-Year-Old Boy Sets House On Fire And Kills Entire Family

    Three-Year-Old Boy Sets House On Fire And Kills Entire Family

    Normally when I read of news stories of kids who die, I feel sorry for them. This one, this particular kid in this particular situation, not really, since the kid was an idiot.

    He was playing with a lighter all day. Yes, I know he was only three, and I still don’t care about that. I’ve always had a hard time having sympathy for people (regardless of age) who bring about things like this based on their own stupid choices.

    I do feel sorry for his mother and two siblings who died in this fire.

    This is another time when I’m glad I never had kids.

    When I was a kid, I was friends with a neighbor boy (who was a few years older than me) who was an arson bug. The kid loved setting fires. I knew it was wrong, even though I was under ten years of age.

    Excerpts:

    • Yahoo! News reports that Trenton Delisle set the home alight after he “set fire to items in the living room.” The blaze rapidly swallowed up the structure that ended the life of himself, his mother, and his twin siblings. State police spokesman, Steve McCausland, believes the fire was most likely started with a cigarette lighter.
    • It’s unknown what exactly Trenton burned to result in the flames taking over the whole house.
    • Trenton died, as well as his mother, Norma Skidgel, 28, and his 2-year-old twin siblings, Mason and Madison.
    • State police spokesman Steve McCausland said the fire was likely started with a cigarette lighter. He said the nature of the items that the boy site afire was unclear. Investigators did say that the mobile home had some major safety hazards; for one there were no functioning smoke detectors and a back door was blocked by a large piece of polystyrene foam that appeared to be for insulation.
