To the Distorted Man

To the Distorted Man
(And I Pray you are not one of them)

Brethren,

Many of you out there are my greatest heroes!  I love the powerful bond of brotherhood!  I love to fight through the struggles of life, shoulder to shoulder with you!  Being the front point of your family in this military drama puts you in a position to be a hero to your family, but it also makes you the first and most frequent target.  Please, check to see if Satan, instead of putting a bullet in your head, has poisoned your drinking water, in an effort to take you out.  You will know that there is seriously something wrong if you have ever said or thought anything like unto:

 I looked at porn because “I am a man and am attracted to women”

(Before proceeding, read the previous post called “Casualty of this War: Part I” so what follows will make sense.)

Now, To the Man: (with clenched teeth, and emotion about to burst through my skin) I say, “If you don’t have the Spirit, don’t talk!” I strongly doubt that any on you, with any integrity can say, “I feel inspired by God to tell you (wife) that I view the bodies of the other daughters of my Father in Heaven in various degrees of undress and sexual pose because I am not experiencing an animal based chemical reaction when my sight organs view you and your body.”

Seriously!!!???

Tell me that does not sound insane coming from the mouth of a man who claims to be LDS!?!? Shall I go on!?!? “I have received personal revelations that I have a certain threashold of sexual stimulation that must be met or I will become dysfunctional (unpleasant, irritable, etc.)” Or how about, “Were I not married right now I would be forced to sexually stimulate myself and find photographs of other men’s daughters without their clothes on. It wouldn’t bother me seeing other men view my daughters naked as long as they are over 18, so I am sure it doesn’t bother them. And if I really stretch it, I can blame all of this on the way you look.”  Oh yes, I can go on!!!

Holy Cow!!!

BRETHREN!!! If you find yourself experiencing any degree or any version of the thoughts I just finished describing, your mind has been significantly distorted. If you believe any of it, you have been even more distorted. Now, I do experience more compassion for you than anger (if you can keep from blaming your woman for it all). I do have a strong testimony of the power of Satan in his ability to reel you in to this degree of slavery and psychological distortion, but please, PLEASE, do not blame it on the woman. Get the help you need. Please, get the help you need.

Your fellow Warrior,

Maurice
