What Part Did the Internet Play in Your Loss of Faith?

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Life and Times of Bruce GerencserI am of the opinion that the advent of the internet is hastening America’s march towards secularism and unbelief. Prior to Al Gore inventing the internet, knowledge was controlled by academic institutions, libraries, churches, and mainstream media outlets. Today, Americans are exposed to dizzying amount of data. Thanks to Google, known as GOD at our house, the answers to every question are but a search away. … [Read more...]

Every week, once or twice a week, I’ll be posting up one of the questions from the message board and ask you, our readers, to answer that poor soul’s question in a way that is logical,  rational and the best possible solution, in other words 1 … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: About the ‘Chick on the Piano’?

by Doug Wilson of Blog and Mablog - About the Chick on the PianoClick here to see the photo referenced in this post or view the meme of it below.Editor's note: Wilson wrote a bit a few days ago about why he thinks Evangelicals supporting Donald Trump (real name Drumpf) is a bad thing. He illustrated his piece with a photo of Donald sitting in front of a grand piano with his wife Melania posing in a sexy black cocktail dress atop the piano. His commenters didn't so much protest his words on the candidacy of Trump, nope, instead they were all up in arms about being lured into the sin of lust by the photo. Defrauded by Doug. He uses this as an opportunity to degrade Mr. and Mrs. Trump's … [Read more...]

I’m From Iowa

by Ellen cross posted from her blog When Church HurtsEditor's note: Posting this in light of yesterday being Super Tuesday and the increasingly serious political season. Ellen's explanation of the Iowa caucus is interesting. Watching the Quiverfull Evangelicals try to figure out who to vote for is even more interesting. Nancy Campbell is heavily pushing Ted Cruz, while others are lining up behind Donald Trump, so it's anyone's race in the world of Christianity. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Evangelical Complimentarianism is Run Amok?

by Janie B. Cheaney at World magazine and as quoted by Ladies Against Feminism - Upside-Down HeadshipEditor's note: Let the records show that once in a century or two the ladies at LAF don't immediately go for the sickest most dysfunctional take on all things purported to be Biblical. But starting with the victim-blaming sort of almost cancels out the good in this bit on how men aren't supposed to be petty tyrants because Bible. The original author finished up the piece by also bemoaning the fact that many of these women walk away from faith when they walk away from Mr. Petty Tyrant. … [Read more...]
