Larry Dixon Says Premarital Sex is Abnormal, Unnatural, and Definitely Not Fun

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Life and Times of Bruce GerencserThose of us raised within the confines of the Evangelical ghetto have vivid memories of preachers telling us that certain sins were not fun, pleasurable, or enjoyable. Smoking weed? Drinking booze? Masturbating? Copping a feel on the back of the church bus? Making out with the preacher’s daughter? Running through the third base coach’s stop sign and sliding into home? Hanging out with “worldly” school friends? Going to the dance? Going to the prom? Such behaviors are sins against the thrice holy God, says the preacher down at First Baptist Church. Hoping that good old-fashioned Evangelical guilt and fear wi … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: The Role of Women?

by Steven Anderson from Faithful Word Baptist Church - The Duties of a Pastor's WifeEditor's note: Alright, so I know I've featured Anderson a great deal in the recent past, but he's been a fount of weird since the shootings in Orlando. His pulpit poundings from his blog lately read more like him answering critical church members more than anything else. Here he defends what his wife's role should be in the church. What do you think is really going on at Faithful Word behind the scenes? Is it starting to rattle apart? Also, this is the first time I've ever seen anyone suggest that the pastor's wife clean the church or design the bulletin. That's always been the responsibility of others … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Who Has the Dirtiest Mind?

by Debi Pearl - No Greater Joy magazine - How to Teach Your Children to Know GodEditor's note: This is just another very dull piece of word salad about the book of Joshua that Debi Pearl is studying. What makes it noteworthy is that Debi proves clearly one of the things that seems to be a sad truth in fundamentalism - that if there is a way to link sex to something or someone in a negative way then they will. Yes, Debi went right to the practice of bestiality in this piece. … [Read more...]

Guilt and Shame: Not the Same

by Cindy Foster cross posted from her blog Finding Fundamental This short piece was posted by someone from the ‘Unfundamentalist Christians facebook page https://www.facebook.com/UnfundamentalistChristians?fref=ts and appeared on my wall.     The truths expressed are so profound, I wanted to preserve them here since they so eloquently differentiate these two ideas commonly, mistakenly, treated as synonyms. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Only Give Your Money to Us?

by Steven Anderson from Faithful Word Baptist Church - When Church Gets ExpensiveEditor's note: Anderson is busy throwing shade at churches that sell their DVDs and different things but please note his church website and personal website also peddles DVDs and piano lesson books. Hypocrite much?One of the recent claims that Anderson made was that he lost his Bitcoin processor BitPay because of his remarks against homosexuality and the Orlando nightclub attack. After talking with Bitcoin journalist Ian DeMartino it seems very unlikely that Anderson lost his Bitcoin privileges due to his moral stances. Bitcoin prides itself on being as impartial and free as possible without any … [Read more...]

by Larry Solomon from Biblical Gender Roles -How Can We Blame Police For Having Bias Against Blacks? (not linking directly to Larry but this is the top post on his site)'Editor's note: As I stated in the Facebook Live video yesterday this has been a personally disturbing week for me, complete with huge triggers because of the officer-involved shootings this week. As this keeps happening I find myself getting more and more upset, frightened for the black community especially, but really for everyone. This could happen to anyone. It did happen to someone I knew in my tiny town four years ago. I've been upset this week, depressed and crying, feeling hopeless, which is why there was not much … [Read more...]

Victoria Wilson Says Birthing Babies is All About Jesus

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Life and Times of Bruce GerencserMy wife and I have six children, ages 23, 24, 27, 32, 35, and 37. Polly had all of the children vaginally, without epidurals. Over the years, I have stood in the background and watched as Polly traded birthing war stories with other mothers.
