Such tough truth talk is all means to an end though in the Bible .
"You are a rotten lot but I still love you"is its terrifying and troubling testimony, Yet men still choose to stay condemned -its a form of insanity and blind addiction ,
The Bible , unlike our present pornoaccepto age, shows their actions to be vain destructive and deadly ."Neighbours:" and "Home and Away" TV are all good friends and somehow week to week the belief is that "it will all work out ". Strung out and strung along,,,,,,,,, but people watch .
The Bible and Shakespeare call such a hope , nonsense in the extreme -they beg to differ .There is no hope there if you really are there in the midst of that mess .It was true thenand its true TODAY ,
The B&S team say it will only work out if you / we change our mind about whats right here . And work its magic - yes it can! Cymbeline ends with this

This is not how nature intended us to rest and enjoy the company of others .
What decent man can keep his mouth shut while ALL our daughters are at such high risk ; while the prowlers are given no censure or condemnation and the victims no way forward.
