An Ode To My Sisters

by Joe Sands cross posted from his blog Incongruous CircumspectionThis post got me thinking...When I was 7 years old, my single mother went to a Bill Gothard Basic Seminar and ate up every word.  Not only did she swallow every man principle he spewed forth, she also fell in love with the man.  Romantically.This meant that, like how a fundie says, "If the KJV says jump, then jump....only afterward do you pray and ask God if you jumped high enough", she felt the same way about the G-man. … [Read more...]

It was done to her and now she's doing it to her children, the cycle of abuse continues, albeit nicely worded now. Giving ugly things newer safer-sounding names doesn't make them any less awful. … [Read more...]

by Lana Hope cross posted from her blog Wide Open GroundA few weeks ago, Darcy challenged the notion that we should use God to justify our choices. It has really stuck with me.

by Biblical Gender Roles from Biblical Gender Roles.com -  Women's Ovaries Don't Agree With FeminismEditor's note: How is it 'God's design' that women should marry in their early teens and start popping out the babies.
