Gisele, You Ignorant Slut

Brazilian Soccer Heartthrob’s Response to Supermodel’s Anti-Catholic Outburst: I Was a Virgin When I Got Married

By John Jalsevac

June 7, 2007 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bundchen is receiving widespread media coverage after an outburst in which she criticized the Catholic Church for its teachings on premarital sex, abortion and contraceptives.

Bundchen’s remarks follow closely on the heel’s of Pope Benedict’s visit to the Catholic country, during which visit he repeatedly restated the Church’s teachings on social issues, exhorting Brazilians to live up to the ideals that their faith professes.

Bundchen, however, called the Church’s teachings “ridiculous” in an interview with a Brazilian newspaper. At one point she made the unsubstantiated claim that in the modern world no one ever waits until marriage before having sex, even apparently calling into question the possibility that a man or woman can remain chaste until marriage.

"Today no one is a virgin when they get married ... show me someone who's a virgin!" she said. She went on, criticizing the Catholic Church’s moral teachings saying, "How is it possible to not want people to use condoms and also not have abortions? It's impossible, I'm sorry."

However, in an interview with the Italian edition of “Vanity Fair” that appeared just after the supermodel made her remarks, the Brazilian soccer superstar Ricardo Izecson Santos Leite has said that both he and his wife, Caroline, were virgins when they got married. Ricardo, one of Brazil’s most successful soccer players, has long been known for both his outspoken Christian faith and his remarkable good looks.

“The Bible teaches that true love waits until marriage," Ricardo told “Vanity Fair”, saying about his marriage, “If our life today is so beautiful, I think it is because we waited."

The time prior to his and his wife’s marriage, during which they conducted a chaste relationships, says Ricardo "was important, as it tested our love." The soccer star admitted that it was not easy to stay a virgin until his wedding night, and that even still there are difficulties in living faithfully, saying that “there are always temptations,” but also says that the sacrifices that he and his wife made for each other have been more than worth it.

Beautiful testimony to faith, marital love.

And why do we not see those words together enough?

This guy has obviously never read the Bible. No where in the Bible does it say anything about true love waiting! In fact in the Old Testament, God sepecifically condones polygamy. How many wives and concubines did King David have?

But then why should I be surprised that a Roman Catholic has never read the Bible? At least the Protestant fundamentalists know what is written in the ghastly tome.

Isaiah 45:7 - I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the Lord do all these things.

There you have it. God creates evil. He admits it. So why precisely should we obey him?

Not to mention the endorsement of slavery and child sacrifice (the story of Jephthah in the Book of Judges).

"There you have it. God creates evil. He admits it. So why precisely should we obey him?"

Because He is our creator. God permits evil so as to bring about a greater good. He also tests us.

From the Our Father:
"And lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil."

He also punishes, so watch out.

Jesus was definitely against polygamy and He is the New Covenant so as a reader of the Bible, you need to distinguish between the Old Covenenant and the New one.

ah thomas... don't take the bait from anon. Ignorant sluts abound.

Very nice post. I can attest to how hard it is to be in a relationship and practice chastity. It can be done & it is very much worth it.
