Quoting Quiverfull: Just Like That You Changed?

Quoting

by Rosaria Champagne Butterfield in Today's Christian Woman- From Lesbian Professor to Pastor's WifeEditor's note: This seems to be a common theme in Evangelical Christianity, this belief that you can just walk away from the type of sexuality you have lived in for years. Seems wrong to say it's a simple change of thoughts. What do you think dear reader? … [Read more...]

Can We Please Stop it With the ‘Feminist’ Videos Already?

Screen cap from the video "Slap Her" from Defeating The Dragons site.

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating The Dragons You’ve probably seen the video that the above image is pulled from– the Facebook-viral “Slap Her.” If you haven’t seen it yet, you can watch it here. I don’t really want to take the time to dissect all the reasons why this video was actually kind of horrible, but if you’re interested, these two articles covered it rather well:Dr. Rebecca Hains’ ‘Slap Her': Fanpage.it video objectifies girls, exploits boys, and trivializes domestic violence R.L. Stollar’s ‘Slap Her': The So-Called Heartwarming Video that’s Actually Disturbing … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Childhood Vaccinations Are Government Backed Population Control?

Quoting

by Zsuzsanna Anderson, wife of Faithful Word Baptist Church pastor Steven L. Anderson, from her blog Are They All Yours? - Vaccines and Population ControlEditor's note: In light of the recent exposure and infection of nine people and the possible infection of four others who visited Disneyland the same time-period as the measles-infected child  Zsuzsanna's views on routine childhood vaccinations for communicable diseases seems childishly ignorant and filled with government conspiracies too weird even for  Fox News. Herd immunity is a good thing, it would be counter-productive for the government to try and kill or sterilize the population via vaccinations as it would be killing off the ex … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Marriage Is Meant Only To Serve God?

Quoting

by Francis and Lisa Chan from The Gospel Coalition as quoted by Ladies Against Feminism - Marriage and EternityEditor's note: LAF seems to be laboring under the idea that marriage is mostly about serving God. Did I miss that part of the Bible because I don't remember anything said about the primary function of marriage was serving God. What about those people that say that the primary function of marriage is to keep you from sexual sin, or to increase the kingdom by birthing a quiverful of righteous arrows? Seems to me that different groups put different spins on marriage instead of recognizing it for what it is, a union of two people who love each other and want to spend every day for t … [Read more...]

So, Are You a Feminist?

Image from Defeating The Dragons - Samantha Field

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating The Dragons It’s become almost de riguer for red-carpet journalists (and others) to confront a female celebrity and demand to know whether or not she considers herself a feminist. This bothers me. From what I’ve seen, most of the time the publication asking doesn’t have any vested interest in their answer (see, a Time magazine writer asking Shailene this question, and then another turning right around and putting “feminist” on their “words to ban” poll). This leads me to believe that these people aren’t confronting these women because they care about feminism, or want to help overturn some of the misconceptions about feminism– they jus … [Read more...]

by Ellen cross posted from her blog When Church HurtsHas anyone else seen the parallels between Elsa and their own experience with spiritual abuse?I first saw the movie just days after being tossed out of our church and I sat there in tears and in awe as I watched Elsa make the “mistake” of hurting her sister while she was using her incredible gift to create joy and delight.She then is shut up, not allowed to use her gift any longer and she is told she cannot tell anyone what is happening to her. … [Read more...]
