Reading Time: 3 minutes In a series of moves surprising no one, the Taliban government in Afghanistan this past week banned women from universities, and also locked girls out of primary school (essentially ending education to female persons across the board), before also banning women from work in any local non-government organizations (NGOs). The usual nonsense reasons pertaining to […]
Reading Time: 7 minutes Hi and welcome back! Last week, we talked about anger. Then, a few days ago, we touched on how evangelicals treat women’s anger completely differently. Indeed, evangelicals have a whole word that pertains almost solely to the anger of women: bitter. Today, I’ll show you the tribe’s quirky definition of this word — and how […]
Reading Time: 9 minutes Hi and welcome back! If you want to see what a group is really all about underneath their self-promotion, watch how they treat someone leaving their ranks. That’s part of how we know that evangelical Christians are nowhere near as loving and kind as they pretend to be. Today, let me show you how that process works. […]
Reading Time: 10 minutes Hi and welcome back! This past week, an Idaho House Republican, Charlie Shepherd (R-Pollock), offered Idahoans a few choice words about why he’d rejected federal education grants for early childhood education. And then later, he lied about what he’d said and why. Of course, the money’s still gone, and Shepherd’s doing his level best to eviscerate […]
Reading Time: 7 minutes Today, let me show you the double message that evangelical men send the women in their tribe — and how important it’s getting for evangelicals to submerge these messages out of sight again.
Reading Time: 11 minutes Hi and welcome back! Yesterday, we looked at a really awful post by pseudoscientist Mark Regnerus on Christianity Today. In it, he held forth on what he saw as a very serious crisis in the state of marriage. Mostly, he blamed it on a mixture of evil secularism, feminism, technology, and heathenry-in-general (ESFTH). But his post […]
Reading Time: 7 minutes Hi and welcome back! Lately, we’ve been reading and reviewing Frank Peretti’s 1986 novel This Present Darkness. To say the very least, this book’s a slow burn! But now that we’re past the halfway mark, things are finally picking up steam. In today’s installment, the evil villains spring into action. This time, they target not the […]
Reading Time: 8 minutes In this installment, we check out the deteriorating marriage of Kate and Marshall Hogan. In two of the subplots given to us in Chapter 21, their relationship takes center stage. So today, Lord Snow Presides over some more evangelical projection — this time in the case of the Hogans’ marriage!
Reading Time: 8 minutes If you couldn’t tell, this book just fascinates me–not because of its writing or story, but because it lets readers peek at the seeds of some very ugly traits in evangelicalism. One of the worst of those traits is their deep hatred of uppity women. They call that uppity-ness a Jezebel spirit. So today, Lord Snow Presides over the Jezebels destroying humanity in This Present Darkness.
Reading Time: 9 minutes Last week, Al Mohler did something he usually does: he objectified and literally dehumanized women. But this time, he faced some backlash for it. Today, I’ll show you what happened, and then we’ll look at why he did it–and why it didn’t work this time.
