Quoting Quiverfull: Drag Queens Reading to Children Sinful Plot of the Devil?

Written by Laurie Higgins from The Illinois Family Institute found on Doug Wilson's Blog and MablogEditor's note: Another cause of Christian Evangelicals focusing on very minor things that are none of their business while ignoring all the things Jesus said they should do, like feeding people, taking care of widows and children, visiting people in prison, the list goes on and on. Just like this rant about the sexuality of worms and people. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Hipster Clothing Threatens Pastor Tim Bayly’s Masculinity?

by Tim Bayly of Bayly Blog - The Emperor Has Hip ClothesEditor's note: For a guy who claims to be uber masculine pastor Bayly seems to spend a disgracefully large amount of time judging others levels of masculinity. Why would that be?Also, hair is coiffed, scarves are not. Scarves are coiled. Coiffing can only happen to hair, careful styling, or donning a headdress.Saint Benedict never called out random people out for being effeminate either. What he did call out was soft living, as there was a hatred of the body and self-punishment among the monks of that time. Softness and soft bedding, being concerned with soft living was described as 'effeminate' in that time, and those … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Manhood Threatened by Modern Ideas?

by Jay Younts of Shepherd Press - Fathers, God's IdeaEditor's note: We knew this was coming, Christian patriarchs claiming that people's freedom to decide what their sexual preferences were would wreck society and the family because, you guess it, BIBLE! 'Tyranny of uncertainty' is a particularly odd way to describe personal freedoms. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Men Imagine Sex Only as a Goal, Not as a Relationship?

by Larry Solomon from Biblical Gender Roles.com - Is Sexual Fantasy Outside a Relational Context Sinful? and as always linked to through Do Not Link.Editor note: Again Larry is trying to justify drooling over his neighbor's wife as if she were a savory steak. I thought the Bible was pretty clear about lust, but Larry is parsing it differently. What do you think? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Hot Tranny Mess Kids?

by Doug Wilson from Blog and Mablog - Defending the TrannykidEditor's note: Every time I think I cannot possibly find anything more offensive than something said by a Quiverfull Evangelical Fundamentalist prominent minister I find I am sadly mistaken. Just like Michael Pearl this guy, Doug Wilson, has to take it to new and disgusting levels. These are CHILDREN he's talking about and putting down with derogatory terms such as the vile title I used on this piece. Again, where the heck is the love of Christ? Much of what this guy writes comes across as hate speech said merely to hurt others. His entire piece is vile, but I find this bit the most reprehensible. He's talking about a Texas … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Daycare Has Caused All of Society’s Ills?

by Kevin Swanson as quoted by Raw Story - Kevin Swanson Worries Day Care Will Turn Kids GayEditor's note: Kevin has blamed all sorts of things for turning children gay: Girl Scout Cookies, the Disney movie "Frozen", the children's movie "How To Train Your Dragon" and more. Now he's blaming that and many other things he doesn't agree with on putting children in daycare? I think it sounds like he should be a daycare because no real life genuine adult could possibly be as childish and tantrum-throwing toddler-like. … [Read more...]

Not Quoting Quiverfull: Why Don’t Christians Protest Divorce Like They Do Gay Marriage?

by Tim Fall from his blog Tim's Blog - Just One Train Wreck After Another - Marriage Equality and No Fault Divorce - how do you rank them?Editor's note: This is actually a good question to ask of those out protesting or threatening to set themselves on fire over marriage equality. Jesus condemned divorce but they don't seem to care about that. Where are the lines? Why are so many so hypocritical on other issues? Why can't they see that treated homosexuals the same way you treat a divorced person is the right thing to do? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Looking at Kaitlyn Jenner’s Vanity Fair Photo Warps Childrens Minds?

by Steven L. Anderson  in a recent sermon posted on Youtube and at Raw Story - Arizona Pastor Prays For God To Rip Out Caitlyn Jenner's Heart: "I Hate Him With A Perfect Hatred"Editor's note: If there is one thing we can be thankful for about the Duggarbacle (thank you Mrs. Grizzley for coining this) it's that it's kept many who would normally be frothing at the mouth about transgendered people and gay folks too occupied to chime in on the Bruce to Caitlyn Jenner transition story. That can only be a good thing. I'm not sure how little kids looking at the cover of Vanity Fair are going to have their minds perverted since they are likely to think they are looking at another pretty lady. If … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Game of Porn – “Game of Thrones” Is Mind-Rotting Pornography?

 by Matt Walsh from The Matt Walsh Blog (linked through Do No Link: No need to give him any clicks towards the overwhelming flood of advertising on his site - beware the zillion popups! ) - Christians, Now Is Probably A Good Time To Stop Watching "Game of Thrones"Editor's note: Matt tries to make the case that "Game of Thrones"  watching is the same as watching pornography, that is is pornography. Clearly he has the same problems keeping away from porn as Michael Pearl seems to have in this week's article by Bruce Gerencser "Are You A Porno Freak?" What gives Walsh or Pearl the authority to determine for anyone else what we should or should not do? Did anyone really think … [Read more...]

Part 2 – A Crash Course in Sex, Gender and Sexual Orientation

by Mel cross posted from her blog When Cows and Kids CollideAlrighty.  Let's start with a quick refresher course from the previous post:Physical sex refers to which secondary sex characteristics a person has.  The binary nature of the system creates problems when someone has a reproductive system that is not fully female or male. Genetic sex refers to the compliment of sex chromosomes (X and Y) present in a person.  Usually, a someone with a female physical sex is XX and a male physical sex is XY - but this cannot be determined without medical testing AND is not always true. Our sexual characteristics are determined by hormonal cascades during early embryonic development.  These … [Read more...]
