Just click on the link and find the additional link to Ashley Madison, and read the bottom of the home page. Pretty clear they are not "holding hands" level relationships. IMHO anyone searching a site like this is not much of a person, nor are they of any serious involvement of their religions. however these were the religions they claimed to be from evidently in their registrations. It does show that the highest numbers are from Evangelicals, Catholics, and Protestants. And that the lowest were from Hindu, Atheists, Jehovah Witnesses. So why are so many from main religions on top, and so few from the others?
I'm just shocked. And by the way when *I* say "Christians," I include my Catholic brethren too. Brother.
Aren't you shocked?
Maybe these idiots that peruse this nasty website are so pretentious, they just *say* they are Christian; avoiding the "Atheist" title, afraid it might turn people off.
In case there is any doubt about Jesus' contempt for adulterers, all we have to do is look at what sins He considers similarly evil. In Matt 15, He puts adultery right up alongside with stealing, lying, even murder!
9For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false witness, slander.
So I will say again: How can anyone
professing to follow Christ, visit an adulterer-only website, looking for sex partners? THIS is why I am totally baffled. I don't consider Atheists to be more adulterous. But I would expect more Atheists to visit this website than Christians. Why? Because a person can be an adulterer and still be defined as an Atheist. On the other hand, practicing adulterers manifestly do NOT adhere to or believe in Christ's teachings.
In short, every single member of that website that claims to be a Christian (other than for the purpose of rebuking adulterers) is a complete liar, fraud, and hypocrite, deserving of harsher
punishment than any unbeliever.
Side thought: I wonder what Jesus meant by "sexual immorality" in that verse? Clearly it doesn't mean adultery. That would be a totally needless redundancy. He's talking about something else. But what?
