Are Celebrity Christians Above The Law?

by Living Liminal cross posted from her blog Living LiminalIn the 2000 movie, The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle, the two cartoon characters are arrested and brought before 'Judge Cameo' who, as soon as she recognizes them, dismisses the case against them stating that "celebrities are above the law".Now, in the context of the film, it was funny - even while it took a clever jab at the attitude that condones and excuses the bad behavior of the rich and famous. No matter what they've been accused of, no matter how they've behaved, they are not to be held to the same standards as the 'common' man - simply because they are famous! … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Patriarchy Is Biblical – Get Over It?

by Vaughn Ohlman from True Love Doesn't Rape - What is Patriarchy I: Defining Our TermEditor's note: So here's the end results of another long posting by Von where he twists things and cherry picks the Bible. Because the word Patriarch is mentioned 14 times in the New Testament that makes it a real thing according to him. Followed by lots of 'children must obey their fathers' doubling down. Plus I have to say I always find it amusing when Christians that rant about the evils of homosexuality and/or alcohol love the King James Bible. The ruler for which it is named did commission scholars to do the translation while he was drinking and running around with his gay lover. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Telling Someone Else To Cover Up?

by Trish Ramos from Fish With Trish - "Uh Oh!"Editor's note: Several stories at Ramos site that explain how she and one of her readers confronted and shamed women dressed in what they considered an 'immodest' manner. I can't even... just horrified thinking of how badly the recipient of their tracts and unsolicited advice must have felt, ashamed, blamed and all sorts of negative things. Intolerance, hate disguised as love and a number of other things Jesus never said to inflict upon others. … [Read more...]

Answer to my Critics: My Childhood Opened My Eyes

by Joe Sands cross posted from his blog Incongruous Circumspection Editor's note: Some translations here. Billy Boy G is Bill Gothard, Swine Beads are Michael and Debi Pearl and Ezzo-kimos are followers of Gary Ezzo. Trigger warnings for descriptions of child abuse.Recently, I was accused of only speaking out against Billy Boy G. and his patriarchal ilk because I have a vendetta against my life as a child.  While I do not disagree that half of my childhood was pure torture, I vehemently disagree with that accusation.Here's a summing up of my childhood: … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: LAF Thinks Boys Should Be Allowed To Develop Neanderthal Ideas About Girls?

by Dan Bell at The Telegraph as quoted at Ladies Against Feminism - We must stop indoctrinating boys in feminist ideologyEditor's note: This is exactly what it looks like when men and women support and promote the long-standing Rape Culture in patriarchal theology. It's the flip side of their purity culture -- Don't wear anything that tempts a man into lust, but if you do he's allowed to rape you. Is it really a bad thing to teach our children from a young age that no one is owed sex from anyone else? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: You ‘Own’ Your Children?

by Biblical Gender Roles from Biblical Gender Roles.com - Does The Bible Teach The Concept Of "Human Property"Editor's note: This is one of the postings where BGR says that it's biblical and a-okay with God if people own other people because slavery is in the Bible. He is particularly enamored of the idea of the father-patriarch owning all the wives and children in their own households while still claiming they aren't slaves. I don't know, his vision of the submission of women and children reads very much like slavery from here. What do you think? … [Read more...]
