Leaving Christianity: Why I Was an Old Man Before I Deconverted

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Life and Times of Bruce GerencserI am often asked why it took me so long to deconvert. Some people suggest that I must have really been stupid to have spent most of my life believing in a God that doesn’t exist. People who have always been atheists have a hard time understanding how anyone could spend 50 years believing a book of fairy tales — the Bible — is real. Sometimes people can be downright cruel, suggesting that there must have been some sort of ulterior motive that kept me believing all those years. Money? Power? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Disease Caused Only by What You Eat?

by Anonymous at Crown of Beauty Magazine - Skinny Girls EatEditor's note: Found this bit in a long posting about accepting yourself the way you are and giving dieting advice. I was looking for something on the subject of modesty since it's almost bikini/modesty verklempting time in fundytown. But I stumbled instead on this piece that actually had some decent advice for young gals about their bodies and healthy eating. Pleased to see that for a change instead of the usual shaming and blaming. But then I saw this --- another not entirely truth and sometimes harmful idea of health that loves to float around the Quiverfull Evangelical world --- that all illness can be overcome with natural … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Even a Medical Career is Selfish For a Woman?

by Larry Solomon from Biblical Gender Roles - The Sacrifice God Calls Christian Wives toEditor's note: Larry is at it again, this time influencing a fourth year medical student to give up her studies and possible livelihood to stay home and have babies. He calls a woman's medical career selfish. Keep in mind that this young lady is not even married yet, but at this late date in her education and training she's being influenced to toss it all away by the ignorant words of a online Red Pill Christian weak patriarch she does not even know. This is the damage that people like Larry, Nancy Campbell, Lori Alexander, et al do. … [Read more...]

Banning Movies – Parody That Sounds Too Real

There's of a lot of films out right now that are upsetting the Evangelical Quiverfull world right now, from 'The Shack' with it's depiction of God as a LGBQT black woman to 'Beauty and the Beast' and it's brief depiction of a gay Lefou. They are ignoring the disturbing themes of kidnapping and holding someone against their will, Stockholm Syndrome and the vaguely bestiality theme of a girl in love with a buffalo-bear-pig being.Right now even Duggar son-in-law Ben Seewald is ranting in long videos about the evils of 'The Shack'. This is sort of a parody of that.The Try Guys of Buzz Feed, whom I usually love and adore, decided to poke fun at the religious right's banning of all sorts … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Satan Tricks Women Using Their Emotions?

by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife - Satan Preys on the Vulnerability of WomenEditor's note: So if I'm reading Lori's fan girl's letter here she's saying that women getting together to pray or study the Bible are just gossiping and ignoring their mandate to be home silently raising their children? Why is it always all or nothing? Lori talks in her book about getting together in groups to teach other women but this makes it sound like for everyone else but Lori it is a sin. Isolationism at it's finest. Yes, yes, it's much easier to control and manipulate isolated people. … [Read more...]

Go Ahead, Donald Trump Supporters, Defend Your Man

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Life and Times of Bruce GerencserEditor's note: I think this last press conference of our president bears some scrutiny. If he falls apart and leaves office we will be stuck with the scary fundamentalist-quiverfull policies of his vice president - Mike Pence. As long as Pence is a mere heartbeat away from the highest office in the land we will be discussing politics occasionally here. … [Read more...]

The Superbowl, Wooden Dildos and Peaceful Resistance

by Suzanne TitkemeyerFor the last few weeks I've been out of the country, on a trip to Costa Rica to find a place to retire. I've missed a lot of the political commentary and the actions of our new president. Which was a good thing it turns out. The constant drum beat of news we experience here in the United States has been making me anxious. There was none of that during my weeks in this tropical nation, I slept peacefully and the anxiety dreams I've been plagued with for months disappeared. My suddenly high blood pressure normalized. I know I'm not the only one feeling like this right now either.What little that did filter through to me in Central America was largely horrifying. … [Read more...]
