Pig in a headlock beating its face in -- an illustration of lack of self control

    I went to the last DC in Amherst this Summer.

    On Sunday the symposium part on Appreciating the Messianinc King's Appealing Personality...

    The part on Self-Controlled opened up with an illustration that I kid you not repulsed me so much I had to get up and walk about in the concourse, go to the bathroom and splash cold water on my face.

    The speaker opened up by saying a man grabbed a pig in a headlock and proceeded to punch its face, over and over as hard as he could.

    Just visualizing the illustration almost made me throw up.

    There was no way I could sit through that talk.

    The speaker went on as if the illustration was an excellent example of how some people lack self-control.

    How about showing some self-control in choosing illustrations that don't make people cringe or gag, brother?

    Was that really in the outline?

    Was that illustration used in other DC's?

    What's your reaction?

    that would of been my only reason for attending, just to hear that line.

    So, was he trying to control the pig? Was the man without self control because he was compelled to punch a pig? Was the pig wearing leather?

    LMAO "was the pig wearing leather"

    I'm a humane investigator, if I heard that for sure I would have searched the speaker down afterwards and told him how ridiculous that illustration was. I wonder if he ever saw this picture and the reaction that was caused by people seeing it.

    Using something like this in a religious-type talk,,, unreal.

    what an Idiot !
