News: The Fall Out From Arkansas Rehoming Representative Justin Harris

Remember back in the spring when the news of Fundamentalist Evangelical Arkansas state rep Justin Harris rehoming his adopted daughters with a sex offender emerged? It has had some good effect, even if Harris is too deluded and shameless to do the right thing and step down from his position in government. It resulted in Arkansas passing a law criminalizing rehoming adopted children without court approval. It remains to be seen if this is going to effect voter support for Harris when he next comes up for reelection. Small steps forward. Now if all the other states in our nation would pass similar laws there would be more protections in place for children of adoption. … [Read more...]

by DE FC Jonnpedro from Facebook as quoted by Vyckie GarrisonEditor's note: Make sure you look at the photo accompanying this post at Facebook.

“How to Win Over Depression” review 28 -48

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating The Dragons Last week I spent a good bit of time talking about how Tim doesn’t understand the symptoms of depression and what those symptoms can look like; this week it becomes blindingly obvious why Tim so deeply and fundamentally doesn’t understand depression. In his chapter “The Symptoms of Depression” he makes it very clear that he has a mental picture of the ideal depressed person. All of his descriptions of the various symptoms point to the common cultural understanding of how a depressed person behaves and what they look like. … [Read more...]

by Josh Duggar of the Family Research Council at last Saturday's rally in Washington D.C. From Raw Story -  Josh Duggar: Christians who aren't allowed to discriminate against gays are victims of discriminationEditor's note: It's pretty obvious that Josh doesn't understand that not being allowed to discriminate against others is not Christian persecution. It seems that Josh is not liking being discriminated against as much as he enjoys discriminating against others. It is some damn fine martyrbating he's doing. You can watch the entire interview at CNS News. … [Read more...]

Family Life Today: Poised to Take Over the Vacancy Left by Vision Forum Ministries

by Suzanne TitkemeyerWhen the news of the unwanted sexual encounters between Vision Forum's Doug Phillips and Lordes Torres came out followed by the closing of both Vision Forum Ministries and their for profit Vision Forum Inc it left quite a void in the world of Christian Dominionism, Patriarchy and Quiverfull movements. Everyone speculated who would take over from the powerhouse dominionist ministry of Vision Forum. But those that might have stepped in to fill the void left by the closing of Vision Forum had their own scandals to deal with: first Bill Gothard of IBLP/ATI, who is huge in the world of homeschooling and dominionism, was accused of groping teenagers working at ATI … [Read more...]

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Life and Times of Bruce GerencserLast year, Bob Gray Sr., retired pastor of Longview Baptist Temple in Longview, Texas, took to his blog pulpit to whine and complain about church women no longer obeying Deuteronomy 22:5: The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the Lord thy God. That’s right, Brother Bob is upset about Independent Fundamentalist Baptist (IFB) church women wearing pants. Of all the things a pastor could or should be worried about, Gray is concerned about women wearing what he perceives to be men’s clothing. Gray write … [Read more...]
