Law of Kindness: How Christianity Affects My Ethics

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Samantha P Field.comI’m a spiritual abuse survivor, fundamentalist cult survivor, abuse survivor, and rape survivor; I’m part of the LGBT community and, as a feminist, have experienced harassment, rape and death threats. Because I don’t have access to a decent therapist I’ve found myself dealing with all of that trauma primarily through online support groups. Over the past three years I’ve faded in and out of a variety of groups with a multiplicity of purposes, mission statements, and moderation styles. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Nancy Campbell Still Should Be Able To Gay-Bash?

by Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies - Let's Play FairEditor's note: A Two-For-One this time. Nancy plays the martyrbating card and falsely claims Christians are being discriminated against as well as she is upset that the world's homosexual population is allowed to exist. The only possible worse thing she could have claimed is that she supports Quiverfull to outbreed Islam, which she has said in many interviews and hinted at on Friday's Al Jazeera piece on Quiverfull. She did manage to sneak in some Muslim bashing in this piece. … [Read more...]

Another installment of giving better answers to the questions asked at Debi Pearl’s site message board for the book ‘Preparing To Be A Help Meet’. Many young ladies ask questions on all sorts of different subjects brought up by the book.

Quoting Quiverfull: Cats Are Better Mothers Than Feminists?

by Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies - Inborn InstinctivenessEditor's note: There are several things about this post that just make my blood boil. 1. The phrase "And she is only an animal." as if the little cat is somehow a lesser being than Nancy and 2. the idea that working mothers that have to leave their children to be nurtured by others are not as maternal as her outdoor kitty. How insulting all the way around! Run, kitty, run! … [Read more...]

It’s Not That Complicated: The Introduction

by Mel cross posted from her blog When Cows and Kids CollideWhile my brain continues healing after my car accident, I grabbed an easy to read book to discuss.(Editor's note: Feel better soon Miss Mel! I'm not sure this book is going to help with that!)I picked "It's Not That Complicated: How to Relate to Guys in a Healthy, Sane and Biblical Way" by Anna Sofia and Elizabeth Botkin.The Botkin Daughters interest me.  Based on their website, Anna Sophia was 16 in 2001 which means she's about 30-31 while Elizabeth is two years younger and 28-29 years old.  I'm 34, so we're contemporaries; all roughly members of the older end of the Millennial Generation or more specifically m … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 2 – ‘Star Wars’ Movie Series Message is Kill Christianity?

by Steven L. Anderson of Faithful Word Baptist Church - Star Wars in Light of the BibleEditor's note: There's just so much from this sermon that belongs here, but there's not enough room or time. I leave you with this, Steven ranting about Darth Vadar being pseudo-Jesus and Buddhism. Why does every single one of his sermons read like a demented justification for hating others, fearing the world and like the ravings of someone without a good grip on mental health? I've read all sorts of odd justifications for Christians hating Yoga but he's managed to come up with a new one here. … [Read more...]
