In our RCIA course, we were given this question when we touched on morality. Our facilitator took a piece from ‘Dear Thelma’ and asked us, individuals comprising all ages, marital status, backgrounds, religions to ponder on the question. (Before one can be converted to a Catholic, we have to go through one year RCIA and ponder long and hard before baptism on Easter each year.)
“Would you rather have your husband visit a prostitute or keep a mistress?”
My big mouth blurted out a verse from Matthew where Jesus said something like ‘If you eyes caused you to sin, gauge it out. If your hands caused you to sin, chop it off etc’. I earned a clap from the facilitators, not for being uprighteous but for blurting out so easily, verses from the Bible. (we were all new to Christianity and hence very blur, you see.)
Now, when I look back it is really funny. I wasn’t being naive or uprigtheous, just being sarcastic. If only all the husbands in the world follow the religious teachings. I am sure the Quran and other religous books have the same guidelines about staying faithful in a marriage. Of course, this is wishful thinking.
Few days ago, I stumbled upon a forum (same format like my parenting forum) from our kiasu neighbour. Actually, I found a lot of searches in my webstats with certain humsup (lusty) keywords and tried them.
Whoaaa….it is damn funny because these bunch of men, both married and single would compare the quality of the prostitutes they patronised. Sort of like a product review which goes something like ‘Peitan’ (name of apartment) room number 123, gigi, she smells good, good bj, no french etc etc. Price SGD30.
DON’T EVEN THINK OF ASKING ME FOR THE URL, NO WAY!!!!
Now, if you ask me, I will still say ‘chop IT off’!!! Except I am not talking about the hands but something else.
