PODCAST: What Is the U.S. Military Teaching about Marriage?

Mark Gungor claimed responsibility for the# 1 matrimony teacher in the U.S. armed, and I think it's important to know what he is teaching.

As many of you know, last week an audio recording was published on The Wartburg Watch between clergyman, comedian, and union educator Mark Gungor, and a young lady from his parish whose sexual abuse allegation he mishandled about five years ago.

Lexi( the young woman) considered me call Mark out on Twitter in early April for his demeanor online, and for the first time since her assault felt emboldened to talk about it. She phoned him the next day and recorded those discussions, and it has now been published.

I wrote on Monday about that gossip; I'm a big part of it because Mark keeps trying to steer the conversation towards how much he's being persecuted by my followers.

In today's podcast, rather than talk about that audio, what we wanted to do was to look at what Mark actually educates at his matrimony withdraws. His" Laugh Your Way to a Better Marriage" and" A Tale of Two Mentalities" are large-hearted parts of the Strong Bonds weekends in the military, and we thought it was worth asking if THIS is what the military believes is good for their troops to hear.

After this, I would like to let go of this and move on. However, established how influential Mark Gungor is in a very vulnerable group( armed unions have a 70% divorce pace, apparently ), it's worth asking this question. And I hope military chaplains may listen.

So listen in!

Main Segment: Is it healthful to draw gender as transactional and the sexes as polar opposites?

Mark's messages is likely to be whittled down to two main things 😛 TAGEND

Men primarily miss copulation. That's why they deal with women-to get sexuality. Gals, on the other hand, crave linkage. For men to get what they want, they need to be nice to the girl. For women to get what they want, they need to give him sex. Worker and women have different brains. Men's brains are boxes. They're compartmentalized. And the most difficult chest is the "nothing box." Women "ve been thinking about" all we got.

We analyzed two of his videos for this 😛 TAGEND

The Sex/ Love component of A Tale of Two Psyches The Difference Between Men's Brains and Women's Brains

As you listen to the excerpts in the podcast, listen to how he depicts women-to the articulates that he does. Listen to how he refers to women. And listen to how he makes the relationship between the sexes-that dames are exclusively good for sex, and men wouldn't have anything to do with us if it weren't for sex.

Is" The Nothing Box" a Thing?

Connor says the nothing box is actually a "privilege" casket. As Rebecca said," It's easy to think about nothing if you don't feel like you have to remember everything ."

The reason women's brains have so much in them at all epoches is a function of mental laden. When boys carry less mental loading for their own families, they have a nothing box. When boys become more involved with the babies and the family, or when they have very stressful work, they're less likely to have nothing to think about. Thinking about nothing is a luxury.

The question, then, is this: Even if it's true that most men have a nothing box, that does not mean that this is a good thing or that we should be teaching people how to deal with it.

What if it's a thinking of an unhealthy dynamic in the wedlock?

I'd place people to my line on Mental Load now .

How does the military hire Mark?

On Facebook, a woman did some digging about the military contracts.

Many were apportioned with no competitive bidding-they just hired Laugh Your Way to a Better Marriage.

Contracting Office Address: 108 th Wing, 3369 Wonnacott Avenue, Room 10, Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, NJ 08641 -5 406 Point of Contact( s ): David A. Brown

I'm in Canada , not in the U.S ., and I have no U.S. military contacts. But since most of my audience is American, I thought you may be interested in what your government is obtaining for their soldiers to learn.

And then...I come feeling.

I recorded part of this podcast on the weekend, right after I examine the audio, and learned that Shaunti Feldhahn, Kevin Leman, and Emerson Eggerichs were all talking with Mark about how to handle me, and were considering writing a joint statement. I was really emotional. I debated not including it in the podcast, but here's the thing. I'm often told how I "should" respond to all of this when authors call me out. How I should drop it, or else go to them personally, or" don't give my pearls before swine ." And I understand all that, and I try to do that.

But I don't think you all understand the feelings fee of what it's like behind the scenes. I'm still person or persons. And I've become so disillusioned with evangelicalism at large this year. These are my people-the missionary life. And when we conduct high quality research that shows that maids are being hurt, what's the response? To affect me, to draw themselves as the main victims, and to ignore the women and pairs who are hurting. I'm just really sad.

My birthday was this week, and I approximate I are of the view that for my birthday, I are permitted to just say what I was really remembering. I'll frame the cover-up back on and be better again soon. But sometimes it's a lot, and I wanted to let you know that.

The Great Sex Rescue Changing those discussions about fornication& union in the evangelical faith.
