Bible Baptist Tabernacle Church/ Controversy
Most of you have probably seen on Tic Toc or Google the controversy taking place with pastor Bobby Leonard, at BBT.

This Church is in my town about 8 miles from where I live. My mother has been a member there forever.

I know everyone there, one of my cousins is an associate pastor there. I know Bobby Leonard very well, see him all the time here and there.

What he said was wrong and he has admitted it was wrong. He is I think like 86 and his mental health has been on a downward slope for sometime now, with everyone seeing it.

They are the fundamentalist's of the fundamentalist's, meaning they are very strict in accordance with the Scripture, you might say to strict in some areas. I have some problems myself with what they teach and how they teach it.

But basically he needs to step down permanently from at least preaching. His mental capacity is fading fast.

You can see it just about anywhere, it has turned into an international thing.

To cut it short, he said in one of his sermons how he had been here and there and noticed the shorts women were wearing. 

He said, "a man will be a man when he see's a woman dressed this way."

Then he went on to say the unthinkable.

If I were on a jury where a man raped a woman who was dressed this way, I'd let him go.

A fundamentalist is one who believes in Biblical dispensations.

It sets them apart from the rest of the denominations.

So a misogynistic asshole raised in a misogynistic culture, revering a misogynistic religion said out loud what basically what this culture said and did for centuries. I'm not exactly suprised. It's nice that we have managed to build a society in which when someone like that speaks up in such way, they are met with shame, reprobation and disgust.

The bible (the word of god) condones rape, his statement is not unexpected. My guess is that more of his congregants agree with the original statement than disagree and will see his apology as unnecessary.

You know how it is. You're a young girl wandering the desert at night - you're probably a hoor that pre-consented...but even if you weren't, when a ghost comes down and says "Have my babies" you're all like "fuck me jesus!".

That's just how girls who wander the desert at night are. Straight up asking for it. We could demonstrate that statements truth by measuring the length of their skirts.

Hardly rape!!!!!  When the angel told Mary she had been chosen by God to bear the Messiah into this world, she said,

Luke 1:38

And Mary said, Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it unto me according to thy word. And the angel departed from her.

I see why yahweh regretted creating you @Charlie24

“The Lord regretted that he had made human beings on the earth, and his heart was deeply troubled.” - god aka jesus

Guess you’ll now explain why these word mean something other than what they say.

yahweh ever change its mind about that Chuck?

Charlie, do you know that a significant percentage of women being raped go into a freeze mode and are unable to vocally call out or ask for help? They go into a type of shutdown mode that helps block the horror of what is happening to them.

Now that you understand that this occurs, do you realize how wrong the stoning decision is? Do you realize that the rapist will use her non vocalization to convince others that she was ok with the rape? Do you realize now that men have escaped prosecution and punishment due to a survival instinct that women have?

Is god wrong to punish the woman because she failed to cry out or do you think men might have put these words into gods mouth? Be honest!

Funny that you thought picking and choosing would help you.

God knew whether she liked it or despised it, she didn't need to cry out in voice but from the heart.

Why can yahweh create everything from nothing but needs to create a woman, wait until she’s of breeding age, then rapes her so yahweh can become human?

The Scripture tells us that God created Adam, and said, "it is not good that man should be alone, I will make him a helper."

So He took a rib from Adam and created Eve his helper.

This the union of man and woman that God has ordained.

He didn't create Adam and Steve, or Eve and Jane.

More then that. While freezing in a dangerous and horrifying situation is fairly common, many women who find themselves in such situation don't call for help and might even "assist" the rapist so that he finishes faster as to avoid being harmed even more or even killed. Some rapists, are sadly, not above killing their victims if they fear getting caught or be denounced by them; thus many victim simply "let them win without a fight" as to not risking finding out just how violent and cruel their agressor is.

Compassion, logic and respect for women never are the strong suits of patriarchal autocrats and priesthood.
