    Same gender marriage is taking the nation by surprise. I say by surprise because I really thought the believers would fight harder and longer to stop their own states from passing these laws. However, since the SCOTUS is over ruling state by state, believers have a chance to register their discontent with the current politicians in WEashingtom by voting out the men and women who help make the laws, but are MIA!

    I didn't think pot would become legal. However, once again, I was wrong and pot is eventually going to be sold anywhere and everywhere!

    So, why not legalize the worlds' oldest profession? I heard this kicked around the other night on a televison panel. And they seemed to think we are not far from following several counties in Nevada, Canada and some nations in Europe. So, if this were to done, like the panel said, we could develop a new agency at the federal, state and even local levels for people to issue a license and ensure health and safety laws, and statutes are being followed implicitly. PLUS, we'd be able to tax the businesses and their customers, and instead of using law enforcement for busting "Johns and pimp's and prostitutes" the tasks of the law enforcement folks could be spent in areas of gtreater concern. Like ticketing folks for talking over the phone or texting while driving. Cops could spend more time working in the ghettos and barrios stopping the senseless black on black killings; cops could spend more time arresting drug cartels, and maybe even help in rounding up the illegals, while giving more tickets for driving under the influence; not having a license and insurance; and breaking other laws of the road that kill countless numbers of innocent folks every year!

    Yes, I know that making the old profession legal is against what we adhere to in the Bible, and well it should, but the governments [federal, state and local] don't seem to care a hoot about our beliefs, which is seen in allowing same-sex marriage and pot sales and use in public!

    I can tell you, that legalized prostitution isn't going to send a flood of Christian males to the closest legal brothel, but if it did, there'd be many men needing to be absolved of every sin for fornication to adultery!

    The legalization of this profession would mean jobs [for inspectors] and tons of new tax revenue! And the ladies who once walked the streets, with no health insurance for their work, would be able to buy in Obamacare and prop up this industry too!

    So what do you think? And please don't attack my moral views on this issue. I am not saying it isn't a sin. It is sin, but tolerance and political correctnes are slowly eroding away at what can be called a sin and what isn't not a sin! And all I am saying it that it may not be that long before this too, is made legal!

    I am merely pointing out the positives and financial incentives our cash starved governments are experiencing!

    Thanks for asking. Yes, I am fine. Just responding to a discussion I heard the other night. I do not like the idea, but, what I hope I was clear on, several other issues that I was not keen on were made legal, so, what can I do but go with the flow, and live with the way the world is taking over everything that once meant something to us, as believers!

    "You will not surely die", Satan to Eve, Garden of Eden, circa 4000 BC.

    We seem to have an affinity for believing lies. Sin is sin is sin. Wrap it anyway you like, it is still sin.

    The malady of the world is sin. The only remedy is Jesus.

    Prostitutes would not have a business without customers.

    Ditto for the drug trade.

    Legalizing sin does not work.

    "the wage of sin is death, the gift of God is eternal life, through Jesus Christ, our Lord."

    Sow the seed, there is still some fertile ground out there--next to the ones that are ready for harvest.

    Even so, come, Lord Jesus.

    Another NON-BAPTIST thread? I tire of all the threads started, "Dude", that have NOTHING TO DO with a Baptist debate.

    [sigh] will move it. Why not start it in the appropriate forum instead of cluttering up this one?

    Why would a man pay for something half the women in the country are giving away for free?

    The problem is not legalization of prostitution. The problem is the "new morality." Of course there is no "new morality." Just the same old immorality that has been with us since the time of Adam. The only difference is that most people are no longer ashamed of their sin. :(

    I'm sure the usual suspects here will claim I support prostitution and fornication and whatnot, but, while I believe that both prostitution and fornication are sin, I don't believe there is a solid legal ground to criminalize prostitution.

    If you take sex out of it for a minute, what you're left with is the government regulating an exchange of goods and services and I don't believe that's moral or Constitutional.

    Besides, what is the moral difference between a man meeting a woman in a bar and taking her home for sex, and a man just cutting to the chase and paying a woman to go home and have sex with him?

    Same action. Same outcome. The only difference is that one guy pays a woman in cash, while the other guy pays a woman with a nice dinner. So why is one legal and the other illegal?

    I say we make it legal and then, for those of us who believe it to be sin, let's go and share the Gospel with them.

    Are you Okay, Bob?

    I can't see how this is not a discussion topic in the Baptist Discussion forum. It is as important as the OP's on pot, same gender marraige [which flooded that forum for a while]. So why the knee jerk reaction? It is your right as a md to do what you think is best. But this one is rather nit picky! IMHO! :smilewinkgrin:
