Why Purity Culture Doesn’t Teach Consent

phlox

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating The Dragons I’m a Star Trek fan, and yes– it’s related. I grew up watching Star Trek loyally, and I’m pretty sure Captain Kathryn Janeway is one of the few reasons why I managed to be somewhat normal. So, when Enterprise began airing, I watched every single episode, and Phlox, a Denobulan doctor, quickly became one of my favorites. “The Breach” is one of the few episodes dedicated to his character, and it explores an ethical dilemma: … [Read more...]

“Equal But Subordinate” and Soft Complementarinism

halves

by Kristen Rosser cross posted from her blog Wordgazer's Words My analysis of the "Equal but Subordinate" teaching on women in Christianity seems to be turning into a series.  I didn't intend to do this, but I do believe the implications of this teaching in its various manifestations should be addressed fully.  This, then, is Part 3 (and I hope the conclusion!) … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Newer Translations of the Bible Promote “Feminist Agenda”?

equality

by Steven L. Anderson of Faithful Word Baptist Church - NLT and the Message Promote "Equality in Marriage" I saw an article that someone posted about marriage that said this:They may quote Scripture and sound super-spiritual, but behind the façade of husbandly authority is deep insecurity and pride that can morph into spiritual abuse. First Peter 3:7 commands husbands to treat their wives as equals. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Fear or Pride – Your Choice?

feartap

by R. C. Sproul Jr. from  Highland Ministries - They Labor In Vain, Or a Funny Thing Happened While I Preached My Daughter's Wedding Just a few days ago I was privileged to be able to preach at a rather significant occasion, the wedding ceremony of my first-born. Darby was, like her mother, not just a beautiful and radiant bride, but a diligent, faithful laborer in bringing the event together. When I told her I would like to preach from Psalm 127 I could tell she was a smidge reluctant to give her approval. Perhaps she feared that I would chasten her and her new husband to remember that children are a blessing from the Lord, and I wanted grandbabies, and soon. Perhaps she feared that I … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Women Keep Silent?

hush woman

by Steven L Anderson Pastor of Faithful Word Baptist Church as quoted by Alter Net - Pastor Who Prayed For Obama's Death Has a New Cause: Shutting Women Up In Church“Now obviously, before the service begins, there’s chatting and talking going on, that’s perfectly legitimate. When we all sing praises to God, of course the ladies should also lift up their voices,” Anderson, who is also anti-gay, said.  But once services begin, it’s shut-up time. … [Read more...]

Nightline Prime and Purity Balls

white-rose

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating The Dragons I’ve seen a few documentaries about “Purity Balls” (which, every time I say that, my partner sniggers and I glare at him), and some are better than others. ABC’s Nightline Prime 20-minute documentary of the Wilson’s “14th Annual Father-Daughter Purity Ball” is not one of the better ones. The interviewer seemed to be either amused or baffled, and the only questions featured during the program seem to indicate a lack of awareness of what the underlying culture is– although she seemed to be catching on toward the end. … [Read more...]
