"The marriage bed is undefiled!" said the coprophiliac
One claim I come into contact with when discussing sexual morality is the biblical quote "the marriage bed is undefiled", interpreted to mean that anything a married couple sexually engages in is A-OK and God-blessed. It amazes me each and every time, because really - it seems like the most transparent 'I am trying to stretch these words to justify things I want justified' move I've ever encountered on the subject of biblical morality. At that point I'm basically being told that there's nothing wrong with coprophilia so long as a husband and wife are involved, and that this is a full-blown biblical teaching - which ends up turning more into an argument that Christians shouldn't really be trusted with informing their faith by reading their own bibles more than anything.
