On Comcast cable TV, there are occasional programs I encounter during my remote-control surfing.
If I want to hear Bamanite bashing (verbal - nor physical - of course) I cruise into to FOX and listen in until Hannity's porno-hairstyled female mopheads come on and start flapping their jaws. If I want to hear Palin-worshippers bashed, available are the channels carrying Larry King, Anderson Cooper and their their guests on CNN....even more so Rachel Maddow and Keith Olbermann on MSNBC. Then there are anti-GOP rantings of Joy Behar and her guests. Nostradamus seerism and pseudo-scientifically-mutations-based million-of-years-presumptive evolutionist mythology is thoroughly and hopelessly embedded within heretical speculations on the History, Discovery, and NASA channels. Blasphemous and obscene anti-Christian kidtalk is rife and reeking on the animated cartoon channels such as WGN out of Chicago. Some channels such as G4 and others broadcast booby foxies baring parts of their bodies in bikinis for modeling and stripshows. The sports channels air football games, and CNBC deals with financial scandals. C-Span 1,2,3 give political lectures, and EWTN shows rich-robed sullen refreshingly-non-pornographic clergy types relentlessly engaged in a monotonous liturgy of sermonizing along with incessantly-repetitious eucharistic refreshingly-non-pornographic choreography rituals as the priests mouth the same old mantras.
When Maddow and Olbermann are not on MSNBC, and the prison episodes are not on, there is shown (usually on late Sunday evening) a program called "Dateline" within which a guy who calls himself "Chris Hansen" and his backup vice cops and TV crew solicit for what I guess is [non-marital] prostitution purveyed by some pretend 13-or-14-year-old mopheaded vice decoy who sets up victims who the cops pounce on upon him leaving the vice house as if they were some kind of raging-maniac mass-murderer bullets-spraying Columbine kooks.
I try to figure out the motive of why MSNBC is broadcasting that "Dateline" program - which probably should instead be called: "Trapline" or "Screwline" or something like that. What is the effect on cable-TV viewers? Why does the program catch my interest? What's the benefit or harm?
If you the reader have never seen the program, you are not missing anything which God insists that you to see or else you will burn in Hell forever. Like any outside-the-Bible communication, it is optional to encounter and analyze.
Intriguing it is that predators-themselves "Chris Hansen" and his sex-offenders-equivalent TV crew and even cops backing them up, have not yet been followed by publicly-exposed-and-identified, humiliated-and-embarrassed, resentful or enraged victims of lying entrapment who discreetly and eventually cause the MSNBC intruders to suddenly become missing persons, if you know what I mean.
Perhaps such is supposed to stop abductions and kidnappings and blindfolded molestations against under-14-years-of-age girls (not to mention "underaged" boys], which young people would indeed be victims of genuine and depicable predators and sex offenders engaged in explicit or implicit non-consentual involuntary sexual shenanigans.
Also of note is that "Chris Hansen" only targets - as off limits for sex - gals who are age 14 or under....inferring that if she is age 15 or older, talking dirty during internet chat to some strange girl (or girl-sounding vice-cop woman) and setting up a meeting point at some rather obvious potential location of possible entrapment, is OK.
What is shocking is the phenomenal stupidity of guys talking sexually suggestive right off to a strange person during chat. One would think that the remarkably-dumb guys would wonder who owns the whorehouse he is headed toward - whether the gal herself, her dad, her brothers, her boyfriend or husband, etc. and who or who not is hiding therein or suddenly will show up. You would think that at least they would confine their pre-visit internet chat to scholastic mentorship proposals besides meeting the little or not-so-little girl in a public place to begin discussing the intricate detailed parameters of tensor analysis, celestial mechanics or whatever....at least to start with on their first "date" - if either or both considers that to be such or not.
When soliciting guys who take the dangerous liberty of talking dirty to Hansen's young-and-sexy-voice setup decoy ask the decoy if she is a vice-cop decoy or equivalent, she lies and denies such.....which most any two-bit defense attorney would consider using in court to claim and prove illegal entrapment because of her illicitly-dishonest misformational lying.
The weekly episodes of To Catch a Predator might not be as immune from the defense of entrapment as the show claims. Although perverted-justice.com volunteers wait for the suspect to initiate contact, a former Dateline anchor concedes that "... in many cases, the decoy is the first to bring up the subject of sex." That alone might render predator-related cases vulnerable to the defense of entrapment. The situation, however, could fail the "reasonable person" test of entrapment, unless there is "overt" verbal persuasion or coercion involved on the part of the decoy, except to deceptively play along with the suggestive-sex dialogue and willingly accept the e-mailing of obscene pictures of men during chat with a deceived and so-called "predator".
It is noteworthy to point out that the alleged "predator" shown on the TV episodes cannot reasonably be legally considered a "rapist," "instigator of sexual assault," or "molester" -- because there is no threat of coercion or force either physical or emotional....whether during chat dialogue or when physically entering or present inside the traphouse -- on the part of the purported "predator" involved with the lying decoy who does not admit her affiliation with gotcha media ad vice cops waiting to impose themselves and pounce on the usually-male disappointed and deprived solicitor victim cheated by the usually-female decoy solicitress.
One issue of Law Enforcement magazine, a publication of Officer.com, addressed the entrapment issue from one law enforcement perspective. Though defendants raised the entrapment issue, a judge's ruling later threw it out, stating that the act to follow through with solicitor-admitted involvement with an "underaged" girl was premeditated instead of a snap decision done under the duress of the moment. Driving to a meeting location to knowingly "consort" per previous agreed-to sex acts during chat dialogue on the part of the "under-aged" predator decoy gave the aroused men plenty of time to change their minds. The defense of entrapment is weakened further because complicitory decoy volunteers never initiate contact with the person; all communication begins with the [usually-male] "offender." Following that, when decoys meet the men in the traphouse or at some agreed-upon location, the erotically-enticing frequently-indecently-hairstyled decoys never instigate overt lewd conversations or talks of sexual meetings.
What is fascinating is not only that guys, in their erotic quest to search for and intend to acquire presumed extra sexual partners for supposed quickies, gullibly talk dirty to supposed teens while apparently oblivious to the realization that the dialogue is fraudulent and monitored.
When such guys have talked dirty enough on chat, have agreed to a meeting appointment with the decoy female, then actually arrive at the mutually-agreed-upon time and place, then go inside, they have crossed the legal line, upon which the immodestly-hairstyled [mopheaded] decoy greets them, excuses herself for a wait-a-while "clothes change" or "bathroom visit," at which time "Chris Hansen" comes in to interrogate the victim and both watch and hear him make all sorts of poker-faced lying excuses for why and what purposes he showed up at the whorehouse, during which Hansen reads the telling dirty-talk chat script to the victim which the vice cops have given him.
The "Holy" Bible contains similar scenarios, minus the videotaped imagery:
Genesis 38:11 (paraphrased) Then Judah said to Tammy his daughter-in-law, "Remain a widow in your father's house, till Stevie my son grows up," for he feared that he would die, like his brothers. So Tammy went and dwelt in her father's house.
12 In course of time the wife of Judah died; and when Judah was comforted, he went up to Timnah....
13 And when Tammy was told, "Your father-in-law is going up to Timnah...."
14 she put off her widow's garments, and put on a ski mask, wrapping herself up, and sat....on the road to Timnah; for she saw that Stevie was grown up, and she had not been given to him in marriage.
15 When Judah saw her, he thought her to be a [masseuse/escort] harlot, for she was wearing a Marilyn-Monroe face mask.
16 He went over to her at the road side, and said, "Let me go into you," for he did not know that she was his daughter-in-law. She said, "What will you give me, that you may come in to me?"
17 He answered, "Take a photocopy of my driver's license." And she said, "You want me to give you a copy of mine?"
18 He said, "Not necessary." She replied, "OK, here is your license back. I got the photocopy." Then he added: "Damm, you sure sound like my daughter-in-law Tammy." She answered: "There's a twin for every one of us somewhere in the world." So he went into her, and in whatever non-specified sexual positioning non-animal humans can do sexual intercourse, they copulated with each other, and she conceived.
19 Then she arose and went away, and taking off her mask she put on the garments of her widowhood.
24 About three months later Judah was told, "Tammy your daughter-in-law has played the harlot; and moreover she is with child [not merely abortable fetus] by harlotry." And Judah said, "Bring her out, and let her be burned."
25 As she was being brought out, she sent word to her father-in-law, "By the man to whom this photocopy of a photocopy of a driver's license belongs to, I am with child." And she said, "Observe, I implore you, who this photocopy of a photocopy refers to."
26 Then Judah acknowledged them and said, "She is more righteous than I, inasmuch as I did not give her to my son Stevie." And he did not lie with her again [which left her a sexually desolate women from there on, and she thus perhaps retaliated thereafter by becoming a rabid feminist-sexist twit and vengefully getting into competitive-against-males chauvenistic politics.
Ezekiel 16:34 So you were different from other women in your harlotries: none solicited you to play the harlot; and you gave hire, while no hire was given to you; therefore you were different.
Sounds like a Dateline decoy situation.
Proverbs 7:6 (paraphrased) For on Dateline as I watched TV screen of my remote-controlled TV,
7 and I have seen among the simple, I have perceived among the youths, a young man without sense,
8 chatting dirty to a Dateline setup team, setting a time-and-place appointment, then taking the road to her house
9 in the twilight, in the evening, at the time of night and darkness.
10 And wow, a mopheaded vice-cop decoy woman meets him, dressed as a harlot, wily of heart.
11 She is loud and wayward, her sexual-entrapment feet do not stay at home; 12 now in the street, now in the market, and at every corner on the web she lies in wait.
13 She greets him at a distance, and with impudent face she says to him:
14 "Wait a while while I go and change clothes;
19 Better watch out, though. Chris Hansen of Dateline is waiting to interrogate you, but you are alrady toast, because you have crossed the legal line coming into this whorehouse, and the cops are outside waiting to pounce on you, arrest you, then watch you call a defense attorney who will get the judge to throw your case out of court because of lying illegal entrapment on the part of the vice-cop crew."
22 All at once he had followed her, as an ox goes to the slaughter, or as a stag is caught fast
23 till an arrow pierces its entrails; as a bird rushes into a snare; he does not know that it will cost him his life.
24 And now, sons, listen to me, and be attentive to the words of my mouth.
25 Let not your heart turn aside to her ways, do not stray into her paths;
26 for many a victim has she laid low; yes, all her slain are a mighty host.
27 Her house is the way to Sheol, going down to the chambers of death.
A few more Scripture verses are pertinent to the entire situation:
Proverbs 26:24 He who hates, dissembles with his lips and harbors deceit in his heart;
Ecclesiastes 2:8 (RSV) I also gathered for myself silver and gold and the treasure of kings and provinces; I got singers, both men and women, and many concubines, man's delight.
Song of Solomon 8:8 We have a little sister, and she has no breasts. What shall we do for our sister, on the day when she is spoken for?
First Corinthians 7:1 (not NIV, TEV, etc.) Now concerning the matters about which you wrote. It is well for a man not to touch a woman.
2 But because of the temptation to immorality, each man should have his own wife and each woman her own husband.
3 The husband should give to his wife her conjugal rights, and likewise the wife to her husband.
4 For the wife does not rule over her own body, but the husband does; likewise the husband does not rule over his own body, but the wife does.
5 Do not refuse one another except perhaps by agreement for a season, that you may devote yourselves to prayer; but then come together again, lest Satan tempt you through lack of self-control.
First Corinthians 7:36 But if any man think that he himself behaves himself improperly toward his virgin, if she pass the flower of her age and need so require, let him do what he will, he sins not; let them marry.
Second Corinthians 6:14 Do not be non-equally yoked [mismated?] with disbelievers. For what partnership have righteousness and iniquity? Or what fellowship has light with darkness?
15 What accord has Christ with Belial? Or what has a believer in common with a disbeliever?
16 What agreement has the temple of God with idols? For we are the temple of the living God; as God said, "I will live in them and move among them, and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
17 Therefore come out from them, and be separate from them, says the Lord, and touch nothing unclean; then I will welcome you,
18 and I will be a father to you, and you shall be my sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty.
Ephesians 5:3 But fornication and all impurity or covetousness must not even be named [suggested?] among you, as is fitting among saints.
4 Let there be no filthiness, nor silly talk, nor levity, which are not fitting; but instead let there be thanksgiving.
5 Be sure of this, that no fornicator or impure man, or one who is covetous (that is, an idolater), has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.
6 Let no one deceive you with empty words, for it is because of these things that the wrath of God comes upon the sons [and daughters?] of disobedience.
7 Therefore do not associate with them,
8 for once you were darkness, but now you are light in the Lord; walk as children of light
9 for the fruit of light is found in all that is good and right and true,
10 and try to learn what is pleasing to the Lord.
11 Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them.
12 For it is a shame even to speak of the things that they do in secret;
13 but when anything is exposed by the light it becomes visible, for anything that becomes visible is light.
14 Therefore it is said, "Awake, sleeper, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give you light."
15 Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise men but as wise,
16 making the most of the time, because the days are evil.
17 Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is.
21 Be subject to one another out of reverence for Christ.
22 Wives, be subject to your husbands, as to the Lord.
23 For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, and is himself its Savior.
24 As the church is subject to Christ, so let wives also be subject in everything [including fellatio] to their [own] husbands.
25 Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her,
26 that he might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word,
27 that he might present the church to himself in splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, that she might be holy and without blemish.
28 Even so husbands should love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself.
29 For no man ever hates his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, as Christ does the church,
30 because we are members of his body.
31 "For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh."
32 This mystery is a profound one, and I am saying that it refers to Christ and the church;
33 however, let each one of you love his wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband.
First Timothy 5:14 It is therefore my will that the younger women [NOT "widows"] marry, bear children [forget the condoms and abortion-homicide murder], guide the house, give no occasion to the adversary to speak reproachfully.
15 For some have already turned aside after Satan.
