Re: Prostitutes should be at least 18 says the Cabinet

just to clarify, most of things that I referred to was from:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prostitution_in_Sweden

Once again, I'm not saying this is a "solution", I'm just saying that there are more than one way of dealing with it...we can speculate all we want, but there is no correct or false way of dealing with prostitution...sadly.

But if you are a country built on christian values you should somehow try to respect these and stop with the hypocrisy....

About "if you are a country built on christian values you should somehow try to respect these"

Are you claiming that Christianity forbids prostitution? Do you have references to this?

She was a prostitute and Jesus loved her, which is not illegal nor immoral. (see Swedish law)

some bible stuff: (I'm not religious btw.)
http://www.gotquestions.org/prostitution.html

although Christianity is not a moral compass anymore due to other sexual activities with minors...so maybe people think, "...if the monks & priests can do it with minors, I can go to a prostitute..."

If you read the quotes then prostitution is not forbidden?

Even the strongest of the quotes given in your link is actually pretty weak as a statement against prostitution "For a prostitute is a deep pit and a wayward wife is a narrow well. Like a bandit she lies in wait, and multiplies the unfaithful among men."

To me that is more a warning to married men to avoid prostitutes than actually saying anything against prostitution?

I asked the question because I have several times read statements to the effect that Christianity forbids prostitution, or similar, but it is hard to find any reference in the bible to support this. If you look at the ten commandments then these are pretty clearly stated rules but there is nothing similarily clearly written about prostitution.

Because there is no need to: moral and social rejection of female sexuality as prostitution outside the social code of conduct is a cultural value in that region that we have inherited. Prostitution was more about honor than financial retribution for services, the money does not change anything about it for that time's people. It doesn't stand in the bible either that water is wet.

Ah so you agree that it is nothing to do with Christianity but is a cultural value in that region?

You are free to disconnect religion from cultural values. But that's you.
As far as I'm concerned, I prefer reading Lichtenberg and Voltaire.

I do not plan to compete with Lichtenberg and Voltaire but at least you can read me in the original language
