Some Links to Past Posts

Since I haven’t gotten my archives up and running here yet, I thought I’d offer links to a sampling of posts I’ve done in the past, especially for newer readers.

On my journey to atheism: Searching for the Baby in the Bathwater.

On an avalanche of questions: How Creationism Drove Me Out of the Church.

On definitions: Fundamentalism, Evangelicalism, and Christian Patriarchy/Quiverfull.

On expectations and purity culture: Sexpectations: Purity, Courtship, and Dating.

On Christian Patriarchy’s approach to adolescence: We Don’t “Do” Teenagers.

On how I approach religious discussion: I Am Not A “Good” Atheist.

Coming up in the next several days will be posts on how dispensational premillenialism shapes one’s perceptions of current events and the future, and on what’s really behind the Duggars’ support of Santorum’s candidacy.

About Libby Anne

Libby Anne grew up in a large evangelical homeschool family highly involved in the Christian Right. College turned her world upside down, and she is today an atheist, a feminist, and a progressive. She blogs about leaving religion, her experience with the Christian Patriarchy and Quiverfull movements, the detrimental effects of the "purity culture," the contradictions of conservative politics, and the importance of feminism.

    You’re so productive! And your posts most of the time aren’t just reactions to news (which is of course interesting too), but really substantial bookmark-worthy essays. Well, yay for more posts! :)

    For those who might be interested in the fundamentalist mind set, I recommend Bob Altemeyer’s “The Authoritarians”. You can read it online or download it for free. It also has some fascinating insights into the thoughts and behavior of the Tea Party types.
    And now back to reading the past posts.

    Libby Anne,

    It’s great to see the new site up and running so smoothly! You seem to be writing more frequently than on the previous blog (several times a day now), so I can’t keep up, but I do drop in and read the posts after the threads are dead. Just wanted to say the writing and insight are as good as ever. Thanks for your work.

    Those are some very moving posts. Thanks for sharing.
