Book Claims 'Controllers' Hinder Sex Drive
Arts & Entertainment Editor
If you need a good laugh, then reading "Sex, Lies, and
the Bible" should definitely be on your list of things to do.
Not only does "Sex, Lies, and the Bible" cover an odd, if not
grotesque, topic, but the author continuously refuses to validate his
Francis D. "Frank" Ritter tries to prove that "controllers" have
twisted the Bible's meaning to oppress human's natural sex drive. Trying
to prove a point is fine, but only if the point is backed up with actual
The sexual topics covered include masturbation, incest, adultery,
prostitution, homosexuality and bestiality. Ritter drives home the
point, again and again and again, that the mosaic laws that Moses
created and recorded in the Old Testament were created to destroy human
sexuality. He pointed it out so much in fact, that particular phrase
made up most of the book's content. Ritter also mentions that those laws
only applied to the Jewish people that had to roam the desert for 40
years so that they would pro-create, but he gives no basis whatsoever to
back up his statements.
Quite hilariously, Ritter gripes so much about "controllers"
twisting the Bible for their own agendas, when he does this exact thing!
Ritter talks about how St. Paul made up everything he wrote about in his
letters in the Bible, and again, gives no information on where he got
his facts. Apparently, when Ritter reads the Bible, he reads a different
one from me, because I have never seen half the stuff he talks about in
the Bible. Ritter makes a claim that St. Peter recognized Paul made his
letters up and uses 2Peter 3:15-17 to back his point up.
"Bear in mind that our Lord's patience means salvation, just as our
dear brother Paul also wrote you with the wisdom that God gave him. He
writes the same way in all his letters, speaking in them of these
matters. His letters contain some things that are hard to understand,
which ignorant and unstable people distort, as they do the other
Scriptures, to their own destruction. Therefore, dear friends, since you
already know this, be on your guard so that you may not be carried away
by the error of lawless men and fall from your secure position."
Ritter adds that St. Peter said in this verse to be careful when
followers read Paul's letters because he makes things up. This example
is one of many that shows how Ritter twists the Bible to say what he
wants it to say. What St. Peter, quite plainly, says in this verse is
that Christians should be careful of people like Ritter, who twist the
Bible for their own purposes.
Ritter, very nastily, discusses that masturbation can be a "wonderful
thing" in one chapter. The most grotesque and sickening story I have
ever read is an example Ritter uses to back his masturbation statements
Ritter vividly describes a "wondrous affair" he had with a married
mother of two boys he baby-sat for when he was only 16-years-old. Ritter
talks about how the mother and father of the two young boys let them
explore their naked bodies to learn about sex. The parents even
masturbated the boys to show demonstrate how to perform the act by
themselves. He goes on to mention that the mother said she would
consider having sex with the boys when they got older, because it's
natural. Nothing is "natural" about that! Ritter, with much regret it
seems like, said that unfortunately, a parent would be thrown in jail
for that today. Something very drastic should happen to those parents
because not only is that sick, but I wonder what it did to those poor
I am shocked and appalled by this account, and many others, in
"Sex, Lies, and the Bible." Ritter discusses how incest should only be
considered a "physical manifestation" of love between family members. I
can only imagine how messed up his family is. He also says adultery is
okay if the other spouse consents, prostitution was never condemned by
God or Jesus Christ, bestiality is just animals seeking love from
humans, which is natural and my personal favorite, "humans are not
heterosexual or homosexual. Much middle ground exists."
This book is, by far, the worst thing I have ever read. Not only
does Ritter cover sickening topics, but the book is terribly written.
Ritter repeats his thoughts, the same ones, over and over again. I
became quite frustrated while reading the book, because of the
If you believe that the "controllers" are out to put a stop to all
sexuality, then rush out and buy a copy today. Too bad books do not come
with ratings, because this one would definitely be rated R for really
disgusting, nasty and vile book: Not appropriate for any age.
