CTBHHM: Tell My Wife To Have Sex With Me!

created

by Libby Anne cross posted from her blog Love, Joy, Feminism (Trigger Warning for intimate partner rape) Created To Be His Help Meet, pp. 161—164 In this post we begin on Debi’s chapter “To Love Their Husbands.” Remember that Debi is working her way through the things older women are commanded to teach younger women in Timothy 2. You want to know what this entire chapter on wives loving their husbands is about? I bet you can guess. Sex. That’s right, I’m not surprised either. I do need to start with a warning, though. If you’ve ever experienced intimate partner rape, I’d suggest you either read carefully or skip this post altogether. … [Read more...]

The World is “Dark, Selfish, and Cruel.”

Tangled

by Lana Hope cross posted from her blog Wide Open Ground I watch Tangled on TV at McDonalds this afternoon. I was supposed to be reading Paul Ricoeur (I had it on the table), but this is the time in the semester when I already have term papers semi-planned out, when our grad seminars are almost finished (they finish April 2nd), and when one more book is just not important enough to study with detail. (In case any professors see this, I am reading the book; but my brain is on overload, and I’m not going through and making 50 pages of notes on it like I normally do.) … [Read more...]

Why Highland Park Baptist Church Leaders Should Go To Jail

jeffrey-dale-eddie-600x336

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Way Forward Every day, there seems to be another story about a pastor, youth director, deacon, Sunday school teacher, or church leader committing a sexual crime. One common theme in these stories is that the church/church leaders often knew about the criminal behavior long before it was reported. (and often it is only reported when they are backed into a corner and forced to report it) … [Read more...]

By Its Cover: The Duggar Book Signing

The littlest Duggar girls

  by Suzanne Titkemeyer cross posted from her blog True Love Doesn't Rape or White Privilege, Judgmentalism and Duggars, Oh Boy! Warning: This is long and I talk a great deal about how my daughter was treated by “Good Christians”. These are my impressions, not necessarily the views of anyone else. I didn't say much about Michelle Duggar. Saving that for another post since I'm still sorting out my thoughts upon meeting her. Yesterday I took a little trip from my bungalow in Washington DC/Northern Virginia suburbia to another Northern Virginia section of suburbia to see TLC's “19 Kids & Counting” Duggars up close and in person. I took my college-aged daughter … [Read more...]

PCC Has Released a Statement

PCC

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating The Dragons   When I was writing my post “‘God is Done with You’: Pensacola Christian College and Sexual Violence“, I tried contacting four different departments at the school. All refused to speak with me, citing policy, and referred me to Amy Glenn, the Chief Communications Officer. It took me several days to reach her (she was out sick and very busy when she got back), but when I did eventually get in touch with her I asked her to confirm some very basic facts about the administration and their policies. When she got back with me, she stated that she could not answer most of my questions and that PCC did not comment … [Read more...]

No Blurred Lines

stop

by Melissa cross posted from her blog Permission To Live We were picking up toys in the living room, and the radio switched to Robin Thicke’s song “blurred lines.” After a minute I walked over and changed the station, MS Action stopped her be-bopping and asked “Why’d you turn off that song mom? It’s good for dancing.” … [Read more...]

CTBHHM: Having a Nervous Breakdown? Selfish Woman!

created

by Libby Anne cross posted from her blog Love, Joy, Feminism Created To Be His Help Meet, pp. 156—159 “I’m About to Have a Nervous Breakdown.” That is how Debi titles this bit, which closes out her section teaching young women “to be sober.” This should be interesting, right? Well . . . as you might expect, she basically spends the whole time telling women that nervous breakdowns are their own damn fault for being so selfish and that they need to purpose to stop having them. Yay. As she often does, Debi starts with a letter, prefacing it with this: … [Read more...]

gothardbroken

by R.L. Stollar cross posted from Homeschoolers Anonymous Bill Gothard resigned today from the Institute in Basic Life Principles (IBLP) and its affiliated organizations.  Last month the IBLP board placed Gothard on administrative leave. According to a report by WORLD Magazine, the administrative leave would be in place “while the board investigates claims that he years ago engaged in sexual harassment and other misconduct.” Allegations and evidence have surfaced recently about how Bill Gothard has sexually harassed and molested over 30 young woman, including children, for decades. There are rumors that David Gibbs, Jr. — the former president of ACE who was the longtime … [Read more...]

“Frozen”: True Love Doesn’t See Agendas Behind Every Bush

Olaf

by Suzanne Titkemeyer cross posted from her blog True Love Doesn't Rape You have to see this before I start talking about "Frozen". Of the many wonderful versions of the song 'Let It Go' from "Frozen" I think this one personally tops them all. But then again I love classical music so blending the song with Vivaldi's "Winter" makes sense to me. … [Read more...]

Your Word is a Lamp For My Feet: The Crash and Burn Life of Justin Bieber and Others

justin1

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his site The Way Forward Your (God) Word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path. Psalm 119:105 Evidently, the lamp is burnt out for the man sporting this tattoo. In recent years, this man has given himself to debauchery, violence, and mischief. He is, in every way, a self-absorbed shit concerned only with himself. But hey, he loves Jesus. … [Read more...]
