Honestly, I never understand people whining about the decline of marriage until i got into the red pill. Like who cares right? shit changes. You can still get married, it's just not the christian way, and christianity is incorrect so there is no value in it's teachings.

Shit like this makes me want to go to church, not really to find god, but to learn more about wisdom of the ancients.

As a religious man, this hurts.

At least Catholics will never back down about male only priests and popes. Hang in there, catholic patriarchy!!

Having said that, I believe more in nature and natural law, which Catholicism upholds. I see some great trad marriages in my church. I also see some bettttttaaas getting taken to tooooown. They're doting over their old wrinkling late life converts who have had a rough ride on the carousel. They resent the beta Christian they are forced to settle for, and good old' blue pill is just glad he gets to lose his v card.

You have to ask though, is the blue pill infecting the church, or is the church just trying to stay 'modern' So that people don't completely disappear from it? They're already experiencing a mass exodus of the young.

I think this is why it is so very important that if you are religious you should weigh heavily what kind of church you attend and what is being taught. I know I have been in the church most of my life and at a certain age I realized not everything I was being told was matching up to the truth. You have to learn to carefully weigh things for yourself and "decide for yourself what is right" as Luke said. False teaches come to you as wolves dressed in sheep clothing and I believe this is true for so much more than just theologically. Deception comes in all forms and we must be vigilant.

Even then, it is impossible to always keep this kind of teaching from slipping in, and no doubt it will. But I think the responsibility ultimately falls to us men of setting the precedent for our marriages before we get married so that there aren't any surprises when the big day comes along; that "oh, I'm just going to try and start pulling the strings" kind of behavior won't be tolerated with us. Most importantly, we stand our ground, but do so in a kind and loving way..."Husbands, in the same way be considerate as you live with your wives, and treat them with respect as the weaker partner and as heirs with you of the gracious gift of life, so that nothing will hinder your prayers." -1 peter... I think says it far better than I ever could.

It's interesting because if you actually read the bible is says quite the opposite of letting a wife control the household, in fact, this would be labeled under emasculation which the bible quite clearly portrays in a negative connotation.

It's painful to say this to you, and painful to hear it, but the red pill is about harsh truths.

The church isn't "infected" with the blue pill. The church IS the blue pill. Always has been.

Think about, man. I mean really think. The church is an organization that tells you there's an invisible power that created the universe, and it wants you to do what they say.

How's that scan?

Go look at pictures of the Vatican. I mean, really look. Looks expensive, doesn't it?

I thought this was a current issue of debate/uncertainty? Especially for the low-level priests

You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea.
