The Homosexual Deathstyle; or, A Fixation on Gay Sex

title page

A couple years back, I watched a documentary called For the Bible Tells Me So, which looks at five Christian families with gay or lesbian children. Something one of the mothers said really struck me. She said that after her daughter first came out, and introduced her girlfriend, all she could think about was her daughter and her girlfriend having sex, and how disgusting that was. She said that over time, she was able to make a sort of peace with her daughter because she began to see more than … [Read more...]

Weeds, Birth Control, Trees, and Temperance

tree of intemperence

Do you remember that image of the weed and flower I posted some time back? It compared a weed, "Sexual Chaos," with a rose, "Strong Family Life," and made birth control the root of the contrast (aka birth control leads to sexual chaos and not using birth control leads to a strong family life, which is just flat out weird, but okay). Here it is as a reminder:I bring this up because I recently came upon a pair of images that were strikingly similar. And yet, they're not from the present but … [Read more...]

Michael Pearl and a Victorian Poem

Victorian

I recently came upon a poem by J. E. Pollock. It was published in 1883 and was called "Woman's Influence." It's very Victorian, and it helps show just how many of Michael and Debi's ideas come straight from that era rather than from the Bible. Here's the poem (and here's the Michael post that most directly relates): WOMAN'S INFLUENCEBy J. E. PollockWHAT bliss that private life attains, How happy is that earthly lot, How blest to man that sacred spot Where woman's genial influence … [Read more...]

I recently came upon a scattering of old suffragette postcards via the Atlantic and I thought I'd share. Some are pro and some are anti, and I'm betting you'll be able to figure out which are which! I didn't even know this was a thing! There are more here as well. Enjoy! … [Read more...]

Vision Forum and “Historical Revisionism”

History of America

American history today isn't what it once was. There was a time when American history privileged the white, the wealthy, and the Christian, and ignored the stories of marginalized, the complexities of events like the American Revolution, and the genocide of the Native American population. This has changed, and universities today tell the stories of the marginalized and challenge traditional black and white patriotic narratives. Not everyone is happy with this, however. Are you and your children … [Read more...]

Last week the New York Times published an op-ed on the history and reality of illegal abortion. Here's an excerpt:Leeches, Lye and Spanish Fly By KATE MANNINGWHY would a woman put a leech inside her body, in the most private of female places? Why would she put cayenne pepper there?Why might a woman swallow lye? Gunpowder? Why would a woman hit herself about the abdomen with a meat pulverizer? A brickbat?
