Big Love

Smart, Attractive, great guy. Met him on the fly. Nice enough guy.

During the course of the conversation (email/im generally). He asks me have I had the opportunity to read Isaiah, Chapter 3 and 4. Me, being me, I was thinking he wanted to offer his own bootleg Bible commentary/philosophicizin that is generally reserved for my Strongs Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible. I told him I may have read it in a church session or some quiet time, but I couldn't recite it a la John 3:16 or anything.

He insisted on me reading it. I told him I would when I got the chance. The next email/IM asked me had I AGAIN read it, to which I figured he was trying to get a message across, so I did read it. Now, for those that are not into organized religion or anything like that, your opinions are just that - your opinions. That's not the focus of this conversation. The focus of this conversation is actually the exact opposite, in fact. It's a guys views on a particular subject. :) Long story long, he asked me did I GET it. I wasn't sure exactly what he meant by that, so without further adieu, here is the (abridged) conversation.

Brother: Don't you get it. It's about having abundance, and that includes being healthy and happy in a polyamorous relationship.

P: ?

Brother: A real man he can handle it ... Remember its not a sin to have two wives but it is to be a hoe . . .

P: I'm COOL on the whole little "big love" thing, but if it works for you, fine. (At this point, I'm trying to figure out how to not talk to him anymore, but my nosey azz wants to know more). And I can't believe you had the nerve to bring up the KGV in this mess.

Brother: As I had the nerve to bring up KJV Isaiah 3 & 4, I'm wondering if the Sister was bold enough to read it. With more then 40% of the Black Women in America single I think the Black women has a big decision to make and its a tough one. Hoes or Wives? Right now the hoes are winning. Check the states. So now what is a hoe ... that is anyone sleeping around without being married, am I wrong ... It seems like Black women would rather be hoes then a genuine mans second wife. In this whore culture the hoe game starts of early and does not taper down until about 55 look around this is a whore culture ... I can have right now as many hoes as I like but legally only one wife ... this whore culture sets the brother up for sin all day long ... thus the average brother has no sincere relationship with God, filled with lies and deception just for some pussy never gaining a full relationship but just some pussy. See we are Royalty stuck in a whore culture ... you seem attentive is this a whore culture? Did you read Isaiah 3 & 4 KJV

P: Puhleeze. I have not problem attracting or getting black men. A good looking woman can get who she wants when she wants it and it has nothing to do with the education level. Save the speech brother. Wrong chick to philosophicize too.

Brother: Empress, (who the phuck is "Empress") You have not said anything contrary to my point. But Sista, having multiple wives is bibically sound doctrine being a hoe is not. So were you bold enough, Black Women? Isaiah 3 & 4. Dis ant no philosophie iza way 4 life, See.

P: I read both the new and the old testament while ya playing and the new testament talks about being the husband of ONE wife, thankyouverymuch, and even if it didn't say that and whether or not someone is a believer, you just spitting a bunch of B.S.

Brother: O' Black Woman (WTF!!) I just had this thought. Can you read Isaiah 3 & 4 for me on the phone later this evening. This is UNSELFISH LOVE! Jah See and know hoes run from the scripture all day long.

P: Are you a five percenter or something?

Brother: The new testement says no such thing. You can have vain imagination of Jesus suggesting that in scripture but it is not outlawed ... So Christ says the scriptue can not be broken John 10 ... the only laws effected with Jesus are the sacrificial laws ... remember he is the Sacrificial Lamb ... It comes down to hoes or wives and the hoes are winning in this hoe culture ... hoes or wives really is the question. I'm a Bible based Christian Old and New testament. What nigga what! Whats real is real and thats going to always be between you and God and him and whoever else. You have to show and prove, see ... sit down and read Isaiah 3 & 4 it spells out who the hoes are. Sister, men are suffering form what most are, they are dealing with porn all day long it on the net for FREE its in the music, the whore culture is everywhere look around hoes get the most props out here but a wife??? ... the hoe market is wide open from 18 to 60 the women are putting in work rough sex just anything they with it, look on Craigs List. Sex is a god given faculty but people are abusing it like hoes. If you were based in scripture.

P: What the hell are you talking about?

Brother: Sister now that is a very interesting question ... I will build on that with u later but in the mean time read jeremiah 2 and 3 KJV. The laws of righteousness reign supreme over all darkness.


The phucked up part about it is, he does have some points, and he is far from dumb. Nevertheless, not a chance in hell he will be getting a date with the Empress.

Another Tale from the WTF Chronicles.

Your thoughts? You have any tales from the WTF Chronicles?

Ok, now that we got THAT outta the way...I was wondering when you were gonna tell this story. I SWEAR you meet the weirdest mutha fuckas!! Yes, ya boy B-Love is in that category too! HAHAHAHAH...

Then you got ya OTHA boy (YOU know who I'm talkin about), then dude that claims he's a producer (like who the hell uses that line anymore?), and now THIS

Yo...I know this white boy who loves tall black women. Oh ain't black enough, don't have braids or 3 kids...nevermind. LMAO!!

P said...

Hahahaha! When your light skinned good hair ass gone get your hair back from whence it came?

I'm surprised you didn't mention yo other boy!

Sha Boogie said...

Yeah, the 'brother' does have some valid points I can't even begin to argue with -- hell, I'll even go so far as to say he is RIGHT. This is a hoe culture, but both MEN and WOMEN play leading roles. The black family is struggling, we are content shackin up instead of building the family unit. Now, Sha Boogie aint saying she believe in that triple wife jump off, because a 'hoe' like me aint sharing her But, we GOT to do better when it comes to maintaining our royal lineage in regards to the family/married way.

Miz JJ said...

His entire argument is based on (in my opinion) a false dichotomy. Meaning either I am a whore, or I am wife. My mind, my body, my life, my beliefs, my thoughts are much more nuanced than that. Honestly, that is some simple ass thinking right there.

Also, ever notice how people want to use the bible to oppress, or get over on other people. So, this dude wants men to have more than one wife so they won't have the temptation of all this outside "pussy". Oh really? How about exercising some self-control? How about buildling up the black family in a more traditional sense? Why not advocate men taking care of their children and not just with money, but with time. How about advocating that black men don't father children they do not intend to raise? How about advocating that black men get an education that would give them some sort of skill to make something of themselves so they can be good black fathers and husbands? This dudes solution is that two women be married to someone like him? Get outta here with that mess. Also, how many black men do you know who can afford 2+ families? I am assuming since he is so biblically minded his woman will be at home barefooted and preggers. Who is going to pay for all that?!? I suppose the women will be catching their ass to survive while he gets to pretend to be a king and call the women empresses. I guess practical concerns like diapers, forumla and car seats don't interest him. Sorry for the rant, but his entire theory just sounds like pure foolishness to me. And please tell him I said so.

@ Mz JJ:

I understand your opinions. I don't disagree with him in that we are living in a whorish culture. But I don't believe that it rests solely on the female persuasion. What I don't like is, that, people continually choose to pick and choose out of the Bible exactly what they want and subject it to the interpretation of the interpreter. If I'm a producer, I don't write a movie and then everyone else decides on the storyline. They have a base idea, and it doesn't matter whether or not we have different intrepretations, what's the true story. I don't know the guy enough to believe that his intent is to be a caveman in terms of mentality, nor does it say anything in the bible about women not working (which has always been, unfortunately, misconstrued), but I truly believe that this is how he feels regarding family preservation. To which I say, in the wonderful words of Miss Houston: Hell to the Naw! :)

Desy said...

I had the home alone face the entire time that I was reading this thinking "WTF!". How do men like this exist. Next he's gonna pull out the same scripture that white masters used to say that slavery was ok and justify the actions inflicted, stating it's a Biblical thing. It's not the scripture, it's the heart that reads it, and if you have a true one, then at no point could you feel comfortable in stating that having multiple wives is a good choice. WTFever.

Aunt Jackie said...

one thing I really can't stand is bible pimping. another thing I really can't stand if the way in which these whack ass black men wanna act like polygamy is the answer to their infidelity.

i have been raised around allot of polygamist in the muslim community and I can tell actual horror stories of a woman who had a nervous break down and killed her husband when he took a second wife, causing her to lose the love of her life and be stuck with his new bride for the rest of her life on down.

besides the fact the shit is illegal if someone could give me some good example of families in THIS country and in THIS day and age that are happy with polygamy i might listen!

sorry to blog in your comments

::rollin my eyez @ you::

There ain't no need to mention MY otha boy...


Nuff said.


Hate me later!

That Girl Tam said...

Oh yeah...LMAO @ Desy having the "home alone" face on while reading this post...that's kinda how I looked while you were telling me the story. Nevermind that I was REALLY trying to listen, but because my ears were hearing such BULLSHIT, I couldn't really pay attention.


smoothie said...

you know P,

This dude is killin it for brotha's who have iq's above 120..I mean looking at it from a mans point of view, where I initially thought he was tryin to game you, re-reading it, Im convinced he believes this nonsense.

At no point do we as men who practice a certain faith, believe in the practice of plural marriage, or specifically, look at it as a fix to the problems of the single sister...

Id like to know his logic on fixing the problems with black males in jail..

Aly Cat 121 said...

My question would be to Bro'man, is how much money you got? Cuz like you Ms. P, I'm a lil nosy myself. And to make it plain to Bro'man, you can't have 10 wives if ya broke. You can't even have 2 wives. The multi wives thing is a STATUS of your wealth in society.

Why you got me curious on what he'd say to that? lol
