Ellie arrives in my office for her first session. She‘s visibly nervous. As we sit and talk, she places her eyes intently on her feet, breaking away periodically to catch my eyes and smile shyly. Now there are free platonic dating sites and paid platonic dating sites.

The Orthodox Church allows marriages between Orthodox Christians and other Christians (not non-Christians). The main stipulation is that the couple agree to raise the children Orthodox. This allowance for mixed marriage, however, can be easily misunderstood in our modern world of choosing what’s right for me. This allowance did not have in mind an Orthodox boy choosing a Baptist girl because she’s hot. This allowance came to be in a world in which children were often promised in marriage before they were three years old. They had no choice; and so the church made allowance for the reality of a culture in which a man or woman could not choose his or her spouse. But we have a choice.
Looking back at it now, the most astounding thing about this film wasn’t its willingness to take on these issues, but the fact that these issues, over fifty years later, are still relevant. In 1960, when the film was made, director Stanley Kramer knew that the fight against evolution was an archaic one; yet, even now, that fight continues to persist, regardless of the fact that courts have consistently ruled against the teaching of creationism in schools. One can’t help but wonder what the backlash would be if a film like this were to come out in America today, where over half of the population have been shown to believe that creationism is definitely or probably true (an amazing statistic, considering well over 90% of the world’s scientists accept evolution as fact). Suffice it to say, Inherit the Wind’s relevancy has never been more important than it is right now.
I’ve done everything the article suggested – hanging out with friends, limiting contact with ex, exercising and planned out 3-4 vacations in the upcoming 2-3 months. There are still times of lonliness and I’ll question myself if I made the right choice in leaving him… and what if I won’t find another guy like him.
I was married to one super socialpath and I do mean super! You’re right on with your description, right on key! I had no other way of doing things except to sneak and leave, or I might be dead, he was and is still blaming me for his would borrow $ and not pay it back from my loved ones, wouldn’t work and wanted me to have sex with him all the time. Not usual sex, weird sex, with other ppl, strange places. he is very controlling and very,,very abusive. he would beat and rape me and that’s why i left him and never, ever looked back. He did try to kidnapp me and put me in the trunk of the car he had borrowed. thank goodness someone saw him hitting me and rescued me away from him. Thanks for your lens, very insightful!!
You may be thinking that this is a bit extreme. God knows that you’re not going to walk around sinless and neither will those around you but this text is referring to those people that deliberately sin, feel no guilt, shame or remorse and then come up with excuses in their head to why they think it’s ok. If you continue to read that same scripture—it says to JUDGE the person inside the church who claims to be a Christian yet indulges in sexual sin. This isn’t a chance for you to yell at everyone and call the out unless you’re ready to call yourself out. You go to your sister in Christ and confront and discipline that person from a caring place of LOVE.
