Quoting Quiverfull: Drag Queens Reading to Children Sinful Plot of the Devil?

Written by Laurie Higgins from The Illinois Family Institute found on Doug Wilson's Blog and MablogEditor's note: Another cause of Christian Evangelicals focusing on very minor things that are none of their business while ignoring all the things Jesus said they should do, like feeding people, taking care of widows and children, visiting people in prison, the list goes on and on. Just like this rant about the sexuality of worms and people. … [Read more...]

Biblical Seduction Advice With Biblical Gender Roles?

Is It a Sin to Kiss My Boyfriend?

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Life and Times of Bruce GerencserEvery day, without fail, women somewhere in the world search for “is it a sin to kiss my boyfriend?” Thanks to the post, Hey Girlfriend: Is it a Sin to Kiss Your Boyfriend?, this blog is the number one Google search result. I can’t remember the last time I looked at search logs and didn’t see a handful of female visitors coming to this site to find out whether it is okay to swap spit with their boyfriends. I say female visitors, because I’ve never seen someone come to my site as a result of a “is it a sin to kiss my girlfriend” web search. … [Read more...]

Slut-Shaming Unmarried Pregnant Baptist Women

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Life and Times of Bruce GerencserIt is commonly believed by most Independent Fundamentalist Baptist (IFB) church members that unmarried members are virgins and that they do not masturbate or have lustful thoughts. Listening to preaching multiple times a week, daily reading the Bible and praying — along with cold showers — are sure antidotes for sexual sin. When the preacher’s daughter someday marries the deacon’s son, everyone will think that both of them are pure as the driven snow, with thoughts of only serving Jesus. This is the myth that is promoted in Baptist sermons, books, and on websites. It has no basis in reality, but people sure … [Read more...]

All Complementarian Sex is Rape

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Samantha P Field.comYes, I’m leading with that because I might as well– it’s what the naysayers will swear up and down I’m arguing for in this post anyway, and I’ve already made my peace with it. Several men from inside my own progressive Christian camp have already tried to misrepresent my argument this way, and I know that it’s what the complementarians will start screaming if they even read it. So, I’m Andrea Dworkin-ing it up and owning it. My argument has already been labeled “unproductive” and “pointless” (by “feminist” men– are you surprised? I’m not), but I believe that what I’m about to lay out for you is critically important. … [Read more...]

News: Christians Upset Over White Republican Christian Bruce Jenner Coming Out As Transgendered

This doesn't exactly fit in the Quoting Quiverful or News section but after some of what I've read on "Christian" sites/blogs, including several here on Patheos, it's obvious that many folks Quiverfull, Evangelical, Religious or Atheist are hotly debating gold medal Olympian Bruce Jenner's Friday night televised interview. Diane Sawyer interviewed Bruce for two hours in which he explained his gender identity journey along with snippets from the medical community and others who identify as transgendered in  a way that came across as enlightening and respectful, not at all what I expected. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Ladies Against Feminism Losing It Over ’50 Shades of Grey’

from Ladies Against Feminism and the seven quoted articles they tagged about sex, perversion and the movie '50 Shades of Grey'. Editor's note: Wow, seven articles about sexuality, pornography and what LAF considers perversion in just a couple of days? Sounds like someone has some sexuality issues they're working out. They don't even put up this many articles at once about abortion near Right To Life Sunday. For years at NLQ we've theorized that large parts of the patriarchy is obsessed with sex, as much sex as they can get, like the Pearl's honeymoon tale or Vaughn Ohlman's insistence you get married young to keep from committing sexual sin, but we've never examined the female psyche in … [Read more...]

Part 1 – Is It Possible To Be A Sex-Positive Christian?

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating The Dragons If you’ve spent any time in feminist circles, you’ve probably bumped into the termsex-positive. It gets thrown around a bit, and one thing I’ve noticed is that it can occasionally be difficult to nail down what the writer/speaker means when they use it, so I’m going to offer a definition for what I mean when I use it. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Just Like That You Changed?

by Rosaria Champagne Butterfield in Today's Christian Woman- From Lesbian Professor to Pastor's WifeEditor's note: This seems to be a common theme in Evangelical Christianity, this belief that you can just walk away from the type of sexuality you have lived in for years. Seems wrong to say it's a simple change of thoughts. What do you think dear reader? … [Read more...]
