Part 1 – Trey Orders You to Provide Marital Sex on Demand?

by Trey, infamous toxic commenter, at Lori Alexander's The Transformed Wife - Making it Easy For Your Husband to Not LustEditor's note: I swore after I posted about cheating husbands and 16 year old brides this week from Lori's site that I would refrain from quoting her the rest of the week. That was before I saw her more ridiculous shameful male poster (teaching men, are you Lori?) was given his own bully-pulpit. He's claiming that women giving sex upon demand, enthusiastically in exactly whatever fashion  the Mister decides is the only way to turn off male lust. … [Read more...]

Don’t Sleep With Men to Keep Their Sperm Out of Your Brain?

This was just so bizarre a claim and attempted shaming of any woman that has had sex outside of marriage that I had to share it here. Not sure if the author is religious or Quiverfull. Clearly the site Your News is a click-baity fake news site, but I find it interesting that they would attempt to push a lie that I feel pretty certain that Tim Bayly, Doug Wilson et al will attempt to latch on to  justify their slut-shaming words. This has very important ramifications for women. Every male you absorb spermatazoa from becomes a living part of you for life. The women autopsied in this study were elderly. Some had been carrying the living male DNA inside them for well over 50 y … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Depression is Demonic

by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife - Make Sure Your Heart is Happy in GodEditor's note: While Alexander does not come right out and say the words that she think depression is demonic she sure implies in by her words here. No helpful advice here either, nothing about seeking professional help, or even doing something as simple as getting a full physical to make sure there's not something amiss in your health driving the depression. I know I've said this many times but my own husband suffered from depression for years, while people at our church kept saying the same shaming, blaming and dangerously untrue things Lori is spouting here, making him feel worse. Turned out he had a … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Nancy Campbell Obsesses Over Penis?

by Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies - The Eliminated Word Editor's note: Nancy Campbell's obsesses over penis? These are words I never thought I'd have to post ever here. I'm really confused and I'm guessing you are too. This seems a weird stretch even for Nancy Campbell. Putting on the Biblical full armor of God does not mention 'loins', she is right about that. But... is it really that important, or is this just stupid misinterpretations of Nancy again? I thought it was all about protecting the uterus with her. … [Read more...]

Christian Patriarchy Hates College For Women

A photo essay of screen caps taken this morning from a video produced by a very conservative website that claims sending 'Good Christian Girls' off to college produces all sorts of dire things, starting with 'defeminization' and changing your hair style and color. This nonsense is circulating around Facebook this morning. THIS is the kind of stupidity we need to fight every day against!Are These Young Woman Warped in Some Way? There is NOTHING wrong with these young ladies in the photos above, either before or after. There's certainly no clue they are self-harming, depressed or anything else. Coloring your hair, cutting your hair and changing up your … [Read more...]

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...]

After I Am Dead

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Life and Times of Bruce GerencserEditor's note: In counterpoint to Michael Pearl's quote this morning in Quoting Quiverfull and it's talk of hell here's Bruce's take on his vision of eternity. Very rational without the shouty 'hell' stuff of the Pearls. Something to be said for thinking and dealing with death in advance. I've already instructed my family I want them to have a big party, drink lots of tequila, tell silly stories about me and LAUGH. No 'hell' talk. No crying.As soon as Christian fundamentalists read this headline they will shout at their screen: … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Men Need to Help Women?

by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife - Appreciating Your HusbandEditor's note: This is a good example of thinking your way is the only right way. In the unquoted bit Lori starts off with a story about the television show 'Candid Camera' before awkwardly seguing into men going to war, her bad neck and lifting up that case of Costco toilet paper. Some women can pick up things just as heavy as men and it does not make them any less women. Some men cannot do that. Again, it does not affect their status as men. Ridiculous point here. … [Read more...]

A Few Things I Wish Christians Understood About ‘The World’
