Happy New Year! – Open Thread

happynewyear

by Suzanne Calulu cross posted from her blog True Love Doesn't RapeFor the last few weeks I've been waiting with baited breath for CBN's Pat Robertson to make his yearly announcement claiming that God told him what to expect in the coming year. Pat's obviously falling down on the job since he's been largely silent on 2014. Or perhaps his handlers are realizing how insane he's started to sound in the last few years.Let us revisit what he said in December 2012 in regards to 2013's happenings.... … [Read more...]

questions

by Vaughn Ohlman cross posted from his blog True Love Doesn't WaitWell, another set of questions from No Longer Quivering. So far I have found her questions to be very appropriate, on point, and respectful. Today’s set of questions is no less. This set of questions, if I had to put a summary to them, well, I would be hard put to put a summary to them. They are kind of all over the map. But a couple of them do start to get at some of the marriage issues, so that’s good! … [Read more...]

The Week the Cracker Quacked: The Duck Dynasty Saga

duckdynasty

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Way ForwardMillions of Evangelical Christians are in an uproar over A&E suspending Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson over his homophobic, racist remarks made in a recent GQ magazine interview.  Facebook, Twitter, and the Sunday pulpit have been awash in defenses of Phil Robertson’s right to publicly state what he believes about homosexuality and the Jim Crow days of the South.  I thought I would use this post to summarize the various articles, news reports, and blog posts about Phil Robertson and Duck Dynasty: … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Easier to Submit to a Godly Man?

sacrifice

from Ladies Against Feminism - I Will Work With HimCannot determine for sure who's words these are but they appear to come from a sermon by Paul Washer titled A Biblical Husband and Father available on YouTube. There is teaching in scripture about the headship, the man and his family. There is teaching about submission. The wife is to submit to her husband. Many people hate that because of teachings of feminism. Other people hate it because of the massive abuses with regard to that teaching. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: A Christmas Word?

Don't know if Doug was referring to snarled parachutes, snarled yarn, snarling animals or what. Guessing he meant a parachute.

by Doug Wilson of Blog and Mablog - A Huge White Snarl Flapping Behind YouTrigger-warning! Doug is being very judgmental and hateful in his Christmas cyber altar call. So here it comes — a Christmas word to the faithless. I am using the word faithless in both senses. I am speaking to those who do not believe, and I am speaking to those who are being disobedient to what they actually do know (Rom. 1:19-20). Ultimately the two categories are only one, but I am speaking to those who are without faith and those trying to throw it away, wanting to pretend they never had it. … [Read more...]

Dialogue, Privilege, and the Homeschool Debate

pencils

by Heather Doney cross posted from her blog Becoming WorldlyEvents of late have got me thinking about a lot of things, including sex ed, my relationship to popular culture and society, and how advocacy groups work, among other things. It made me think in a broader sense about my life as well, where I came from and where I am going. I’ve traversed a lot of ground. Enough to make my head spin, really, and like Lana Hope saying there is no pure narrative, I know I don’t have answers to all that stuff and I find myself growing more comfortable with not knowing, with moving forward based on sense and feel, not proscriptive mandates on how to live life. It is freeing. … [Read more...]
