An Invitation to Women in Secularism 3

For a couple of years now, the Center For Inquiry has been putting together a conference to discuss issues of importance to non-religious women. It’s the only secular conference you’ll find where all of the speakers are women — and they have some incredible ones this time around, too, including Katha Pollitt, Barbara Ehrenreich, Rebecca Goldstein, and Susan Jacoby.

Only Pay Attention To the Part Above the Neckline: Pastor Warns the Ladies Against Looking Sensual

Pastor Paul Washer of HeartCry Missionary Society is determined to not let Muslim clerics have all the woman-oppressing fun. Claiming his own piece of that action, he’s letting everyone know in a YouTube video that Christian women whose clothes reveal the outline of their body are “sensual” and “wrong,” and that such interpretations of God’s will are “just logic.”

So, ladies — think baggy.

“God is not against beauty. He is against sensuality,” we hear Washer intone. “Your clothing is a frame for your face from which the Glory of God is to shine.”

A Black Eye For Feminism and Atheism: Watch This Nasty Mob Attack Catholics With Paint and Gobs of Spit

My mind is still reeling after I just watched the footage of a recent feminist protest outside a cathedral in San Juan, Argentina. In the NSFW video, shot on November 24, the female demonstrators are seen attacking a cordon of non-violent Catholic volunteers who said they were trying to protect the building from vandalism (apparently, the attendees of the annual women’s rights conference that spawned the demonstration had been on graffiti rampages before).

How can people do this and still look at themselves in the mirror the next morning?

The protesters, many of whom were topless, sprayed paint on the men, wrote on their faces with markers, and spat on them, in addition to other indignities. The men stood with linked arms and prayed during the assault. Inside the church the Archbishop Alfonso Delgado also led 700 people in prayer.

If I were merely reading about this, I admit I’d be inclined to bring some skepticism to these allegations. Did exaggerations or miscommunications color the reporting?

But the video — as far as I can tell — doesn’t lie. Even if some creative editing occurred, it’s a stunning record of nastiness and destruction. And it seems to go only one way.

Again, the footage is not safe for work.
