    i just don't see someone like the woman in your picture saying "oh hey - all these strangers on facebook think i'm a terrible person. I should clean up my act"
    Youve never been ashamed of something you were caught in the act doing and that shame kept you from repeating the behavior? I could have sworn that is one of the ways our conscience works, and conviction works, 12 step programs work, etc..

    A lot of women like that one in the picture, wake up to what they are doing to their children and lends to the desire to walk in integrity for not just their sake but others.

Their faith cannot be respected. Legislation that ensures people are free to live and work according to their faith without fear of being punished by government must be stopped and decried as discrimination...There is one key reason that those on the Left must force their beliefs on the rest of us: if they didn't force their craziness on us, we would never embrace it." ~Erick Erickson

    of course, and it dint take being caught in the act - i know right and wrong, we all know right and wrong, it's written on our hearts

    but i also know that those who are determined to follow a path they know is wrong aren't always (often?) deterred by the disapproval of others

    Then you are totally sensitive to not letting someone know their in sin, like a homosexual, because you dont want to be cause of them committing suicide, and would better let them believe their behavior is ok, even though their lifestyle is not only devestating for themselves but for others, right?

    The lack of disapproval is why unrepentant sin runs rampant in society today.

    Abuse is not what we are discussing.

    So you do not agree, conviction works and is a deterrent itself in many cases?

    Is it true or false a sin can escalate to be deemed acceptable by society when it hasnt been deemed as inacceptable?

    When did i ever lead you to believe that i cared what you think about me personally? You are who opened the door for me to correct you on why " i dont like you" when you stated it. Ive never asked for your opinion on me in any way.

    Abuse is not what we are discussing.
    we're discussing public shaming, which, afaik, occurs through digital media, facebook and twitter being the most obvious examples

    and there's no apparent control of the abuse that inevitably occurs



    if you were referring to some other form of public shaming, feel free to elucidate

    The thread title reads:

    Public shaming of drug addicts - Do you think its a deterant to drug use?


    This thread has been debunked, and now you are just shifting the goalpost.

    Seriously, why don't you just copy 'n' paste this crap? You effectively post the same tedious, adolescent precocious "I hate women" yak droppings over and over anyway...

    Get some help.
    Well this is fun isn't it?

    When responding to the same bag of nonsense, that's actually a good idea. No point in shaving each blade of grass when you could just pull out the mower

    When did my thread change to abuse on social media? Because you are backed into a corner?

    Then perhaps you need to change how you talk to different people on here. Are you showing some people disaproval here, or trying to cause them to commit suicide since you believe public shaming to be abuse, perhaps you should get on your knees before God and sort it out.
