kingly

by Mel cross posted from her blog When Cows and Kids CollideWell, we all survived the world's most boring courtship between Ellie and Anthony. Debi was really struggling; she couldn't insult anyone for an entire chapter.Don't worry; she makes up for lost time and insults in the next few chapters. Oh, and she gives the floor over to the Three Stooges - Unnamed Prophet Man, Priest Man and King Man - far too often. … [Read more...]

Home For the Holidays, All of the Holidays

Ah ,home, the place that makes you feel like this...

by Suzanne TitkemeyerThat's one thing that was emphasized again and again in the Quiverfull movement, a woman's home was the most important place for her in this entire world. Mary Pride pointed out that way home from a life spent on careers and working outside of the home, pointing the way to homemaking and homeschooling as our life's highest purpose.

Ferguson – Michael Brown Shooting: Open Thread – Helpful & Unhelpful Christian Responses

ferg

If you're like many Americans you've spent the past few days watching the ongoing riots in Ferguson, Missouri in response to the Grand Jury clearing police officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of teenager Michael Brown. In this day and age it looks like racism against blacks is alive and well in many places, this is just a symptom of that sad reality.While this has been ongoing I've been curious to see how the world Evangelical Christianity responds. No word from the usual people that say hateful things in the wake of national tragedies, e.i Pat Robertson and the Kevin Swanson archetypes. The ones that are responding fall into two categoriesJust pray -Prayer Guides Racism … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Never Miss an Opportunity to Muslim-Bash While Being Anti-Birth Control?

NEWSWEEK JULY 30 COVER

by Vaughn Ohlman from True Love Doesn't Wait - Eight Leaps of IllogicRemember a few days ago when we posted a bit from Conservative Christians debunking the Quiverfull movement? Vaughn Ohlman has taken it upon himself to dispute every single point of that list, one by one.But while he's doing that his racism is clearly on display. In the wake of Ferguson and other tragedies born out of racism can we afford to be racist in a country built by many different races, including Arabs and African Americans? This seems particularly cruel, evil and ignorant on the eve of a holiday celebrating giving thanks for the blessings of our nation, a nation founded on immigration and the idea of a … [Read more...]

“Real Marriage” Review: 123 – 138, “Disgrace and Grace”

black-and-white-50s

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating The Dragons [content note: sexual violence and victim blaming] This chapter was a … struggle. I’ve known it was coming for a while, but I wasn’t certain how bad it would be. It deeply concerns me because if this is how Mark and Grace Driscoll and the pastoral staff of Mars Hill has been counseling sexual abuse survivors I’m horrified, and I’m grieving for all the men and women who have been harmed by their teachings. … [Read more...]

by Doug Wilson of Blog and Mablog - The Old Gray MareSo it turns out that Generations With Vision's Kevin Swanson is not the only adult male in Evangelical Fundamentalist Christianity that is obsessional about sex with animals.

Day 6 of 21 Days of Healing: The Truth and Nothing But the Truth

fall-in-jackson-sept

by Ellen cross posted from her blog When Church Hurts“Lo, I am with you always.” (Keep reminding yourself the truth of what God says. It is so critical to change your thinking about who you are in Christ.)You know how jigsaw puzzles have a beautiful picture on the top of the box and the pieces inside are supposed to all fit together to recreate that picture? That’s what I expected church to be like. I expected that the things that I read in my bible, heard from the pulpit and in classes and seminars at my church would be played out in the way that we all lived life together. … [Read more...]
