Thinking about my actress Vickie and what I've learned about her.
Last tour we went on, when I lectured Vickie about the dangers of sin, when I told her that the reason she was unsure if her boyfriend was right for her was that her judgment was clouded by their illicit sexual activity, Vickie replied, “You are making an assumption that things are going on, and they’re not.”
Now this is none of my business, any of this, but it annoys me emphatically. She is too devoted to her faith simply to [fornicate with] Mark (apparently), so the Great Compromise is [fellatio]. So in a sense she’s in the worst of both worlds: she is neither sinning boldly, nor remaining pure. She is sinning by compromise, timidly, convinced that what she’s doing is not wrong. How can such a beautiful, blessed Catholic girl do such a thing? You almost want to say, “If you’re going to sin, for God’s sake, sin! Do it deliberately and feel horrible about it afterwards.” Instead, she’s “not really sinning” and she feels just fine, thank you. But she wonders if he’s really the guy for her!
