For New Readers

I've had a few new readers lately from a variety of sources, and I wanted to take a moment to explain some of the things I blog about. Reading my "about" tab would probably be instructive as well. While most people have heard of the emphasis on sexual purity in conservative circles, the prominence of Christian Right politics, and evangelicalism and fundamentalism, all of which I grew up with and have since questioned, rejected, and now blog against, not as many have heard of the Quiverfull and … [Read more...]

Clicking on that tab will give … [Read more...]

How do you like the site redesign?

As you may have noticed (or not, if you use a reader), Patheos has upgraded its entire site, and the blogs got a bit of a redo in the process. For one thing, they're a bit more integrated into Patheos as a whole, and for another thing, they're a bit more connected to the other blogs in their channel (Love Joy Feminism is in the atheist channel).While I can't control most of the site design, I can play with the widgets in the sidebar. Let me know if there's anything you'd like to see there … [Read more...]
