Infertility Caused by Sin?

Infertility Caused by Sin? December 8, 2019

This is one of those screen caps posted by one of the men supporting some of the worse ideas of one Lori Alexander or The Transformed Wife. It’s obvious that there really nasty toxic ideas come out of her secretive chatroom and her Facebook page more than her blog.

It’s one of her regulars, a not very nice guy named Paul. He is telling a story that was only up on her social media almost no time at all before it was pulled down. Thankfully this is behavior he’s describing that violates HIPAA laws and no legitimate doctor would never go.

Lately between Lori, Debi Pearl, Suzanne Venker and the other female cultural enforcers there’s been a general bemoaning of women failing to produce very large family. Interestingly enough most of them have four or five children, not the huge piles they push on others.

They’ve blamed a pile of things for this lack of children, not wanting to understand for many it is simply household finances. We’ve ended up with a society where costs have risen without a corresponding rise in wages that means in some families it takes both mom and dad working two jobs just to keep food on the table and a roof overhead.

Paul Dorr and a pile of others have decided it’s all about sin, that sin has rendered women infertile. One of the troubling ideas that routinely rolls out of Evangelical thought is that we cause all the bad things that happen to us by sin, instead of what it genuinely is, the bad luck of the genetic draw, medical issues beyond our control, an upside down financial world and a million other things.

There is nothing more frustrating than dealing with infertility and having others blaming you for your inability to have children.

Yesterday at NLQ we had an attack by one of Lori Alexander’s supporters, a guy that has issued death threats against me at places like Amazon, emails, other places and yesterday he posted on NLQ 127 times. Only 14 of them passed the toxicity filter. The rest were all caught by the filter. I know we gripe about the filter here, and it can be frustrating, but I just wanted to note that it works when it’s supposed to. When that happens I think the filter is awesome! It catches the spammers with their love potions, it catches the death threat guys. Sometimes it catches regulars who sprinkle the eff word in like salt and pepper, so try not to do that.

After that this guy decided his best course of action was to take to other Patheos blogs, some modded by friends of mine, to complain about me. Shine on you crazy diamond! I spoke with the police in his town and he may well be finding himself charged if he continues.

I laugh at “You s*ck” comments. I take death threats seriously.

When I have to spend several hours on a busy day cleaning that garbage off the board I throw my hands up and wonder if anything is worth this. There are times when I feel like completely walking away from what I do here, but then I remember things like last week talking of toxic marriage and seeing discussions going on in Christian female boards supporting that abuse is wrong. That makes it all worth it for me, to see that even the bulk of believers does not embrace the toxic theology being promoted by some folks.

I will not stop what I am doing because of harassing men!
