Pastor Saeed Abedini’s Wife Halts Public Advocacy, Citing Marital Woes and Abuse -article says her husband is a Porn Addict
Before I get to the link to the news story itself – about jailed pastor Saeed being a porn user who abused his wife, I wanted to comment about the story first (I also have comments below the news page excerpt below).
So much for the Christian teachings about “being equally yoked,” which is generally understood to mean a Christian person can only marry another Christian.
While it’s true that a lot of Non-Christians are scum balls who would make poor spouses, I have so far not seen any evidence that so-called Christian men are any more trustworthy, loving, or mature than your average atheist guy, Hindu, Jewish guy, or whomever.
I actually tweeted in support of this guy a few times several months back… but he was abusing his wife, and she says he has a porn addiction problem – I didn’t know this until a couple of days ago, when I saw this article.
I also want to remind you of another point I touch on often on this blog: Contrary to what some conservative Christians teach on how to go about getting married, you do NOT have to be perfect, clean yourself up, or change yourself in some fashion to “earn” a spouse.

Raped, tortured and forced to live in a wardrobe by her Family for FIVE YEARS
Blogger John Hugh Morgan would argue that this woman in this story is “married” to her family member, because her family member had sex with her (raped her) when she was three years old.
Yes he would, say this ((Link): my rebuttal to his post).
On his blog, see (Link): this post or (Link): this one (where he mentions people taking each other for a test drive, which I already discussed on my blog (Link): here – seriously, since this dude claims that me or my blog is not trustworthy, he needs to stop cribbing material from it, or at least give credit if or when he uses ideas from here).
Many conservative Christians like to go on and on about how “family is THE building block of society,” which I say is a load of bunk.
The Bible doesn’t say anything about salvation coming by being in a nuclear family. You need Jesus for salvation. The Bible also does not talk about saving a culture by supporting the nuclear family. I have other posts on this blog that discuss this topic in depth, so I won’t get into it now.
This woman was abused in childhood by her family and only found freedom and peace when she LEFT her family:

- Lauren Kavanaugh lived in a 4ft by 9ft closet from three to eight years old
- She was only brought out by her mother and stepfather to be tortured

A woman whose mother and stepfather tortured her, forced her to live in a wardrobe for five years and allegedly raped her nightly has spoken of her joy at finally being able to move on with her life.
Lauren Kavanaugh, now 21 and living in Athens, Texas, lived in a 4ft by 9ft closet from the ages of three until eight, held there by her mother Barbara Atkinson and stepfather Kenny Atkinson.
The evil couple called Lauren their ‘little secret’ – only bringing her out to torture and allegedly her – but were caught when they showed her off to a horrified neighbour who alerted police.
When Lauren was pulled from the tiny cupboard at her mother’s home in Dallas, Texas, in 2001, she was eight but weighed 25.6 pounds (1st 8lbs), the same as the average two-year-old and was potbellied with malnutrition.
She was rushed to surgery where she was fitted with a colostomy bag, but her organs were shutting down.
During her stay in hospital, doctors had to use a feeding method devised for Holocaust victims because her body was so starved.
