Quoting Quiverfull: Being Like a Man Greatest Sin of a Woman?

by John MacArthur from Grace to You - Head Coverings For WomenEditor's note: So it seems that the idea of doing anything like a man if you are a woman is automatically considered rebellion against God. I guess that explains why men with fragile masculinity like Tim Bayly lose their minds when women fight in the UFC or try to have combat positions in the military - it's just the CPM version of the Little Rascals 'He-Man Woman Haters Club'. Hair and clothing are such personal matters than only the person with the hair or making the clothing decisions should have say over what their choices are. … [Read more...]

by Kristen Clark from Girl Defined - Resisting the Seduction of Beautifully Packaged LiesEditor's note: Interesting that she only mentions music coming out of Nashville. But this idea that culture is corrupt is an old one, and applies even if you are not religious at all. There are always going to be songs, movies, styles of dress that you don't agree with. The difference is that most of us who aren't stuck in fundytown just skip over and do not indulge in things that offend us. Evangelicals turn it into a witchhunt/crusade. Mature people do not do that. … [Read more...]
