Stephen Green Supports Rape Within Marriage

For some reason I’m on the Christian Voice newsletter list. There latest missive refered to an article about the Nick Clegg’s non-comment about bigots opposed to gay marriage rights.

Normally when I post in the comments of Christian Voice I am moderated then deleted but for some reason a few comments got through this time. I had a short exchange with Andrew, who by his comment and avatar appears to be a Christian. He brought up that old canard that atheists have no basis for their morality. This frankly fatuous remark always annoys me and I repled with “I will take my evolved ethics any day over a ‘morality’ which says that rape within marriage should be legal.” (Stephen Green is well known for his view that rape within marriage is not a crime)

At this point Stephen Green no-less chipped in with this little gem.

And I shall take Christian morality any day over those who approve of individuals of either sex using the withdrawal of conjugal relations as a weapon against their marital partner.

I have come across Mr Green’s revolting hateful theology before but I must admit to being a little shocked that he thought it wise to voice his justification of rape in public.

I’ve posted the entire exchange below just incase. No more comments from me though, My comments are being moderated then deleted. He obviously doesn’t like my bigoted remarks again rape advocates.

Just for the record, my redacted remark was

I’m shocked to see you actually voice an opinion in support of rape. Shocked and appalled.

—Edit—-

Unsurprisingly, Mr Green has edited his odious comment. You’ll notice that he is still claiming that “domestic violence statistics  shows there are as many overbearing wives as husbands”  Christian objective morality. I’m fairly sure that making shit up counts as “Bearing false witness”.

…I’m still blocked from making comments on Christian Voice. :-(

<— another edit —>

I received an email from Steven Green where he stated that he was not supporting rape within marriage in his original statement. Given the text of the post I’m not really sure that he can deny it but hey, there you go.  I’m posting this statement from the Christian Voice website for clarity of their/his position. It is part of a post called Britain in Sin listing all the un biblical things that are being done in the UK.

  1. I managed to follow much of this exchange before Mr Green displayed his customary love for free speech. I’ve been banned by Christian Void for some time, otherwise I would have been glad to try to give some support. Suffice it to say, Mr Green’s stance on so many subjects is stomach-turning.

  2. I read this, and while I’ve attempted to engage in healthy debate, there is little point unfortunately. I commend you for trying. It is hilarious how when confronted with the fact some Christian’s have rather bigoted views, against their teachings of course. Often, I find they are willing to embrace these bigoted views, trotting out the often over-used out-of-context biblical quotes. I was shocked by his comments, that men are entitled to their rights, even against their partners will. Having been raised a Christian, I find it quite easy to refute most of their statements, but unfortunately, for those with blind faith it will be almost impossible to persuade them of anything else. They do not even wish to engage in debate, there is no making them see that while the law for gay marriage would be opening people’s rights up, it still doesn’t impinge on their rights, no one is saying their Church would have to accept or allow gay marriage. The same with the abortion issue, no one is saying abortion is awesome, and everyone should try it. They can have their beliefs, and enforce them on their members, I don’t think they should be enforced on non-believers. Anyway, best of luck beating your head against the wall :)

    • Thanks Harry! I must admit to being a bit shocked and the sheer hatefulness of many of the comments by the xians on the site.
