At this point, I was indignant, but not surprised. Ever since my MIL married a conservative Southern Baptist man a couple years ago, sheâ€™s been extremely vocal about her newfound salvation and political views. More
A Kentucky teen refused to run a race when officials would not swap out her bib number. The number was 666. We all know 666 is the mark of the beast and she’s not going to be cast to the fiery pits of hell because of a printer error, thank you very much. The devil is in the details. More
The self-proclaimed “largest community of Christian teen girls on the web!” otherwise known as Project InspiredÂ has a wealth of material for that exact cohort. With beauty tips, polls, books, and advice columns, at first glance the site seems like any other teen girl digital haven. But the site’s “Modest Is Hottest” series, in which staff highlight “modest” gowns on various red carpets as well as “makeover” a celeb lady who transgresses, make for more troublesome reads — and I’m not talking about the copy in the articles. I’m talking about all the crazy double standard, victim-blamy logic that is happening among young girls in the comment threads, all conducted behind the shield of Modesty. More
For most of us, the moment one of our children fell sick, we would want to do whatever was medically possible to help them get better. Anything else is impossible to even entertain. So you can imagine the horror hospital officials felt when one Amish family in Ohio decided to stop chemotherapy treatments on their daughter to focus on “natural” care. Thankfully, an appeals court has stepped in and sided with the hospital that wants to force their hand in the matter. More
Prince George, or “Georgie” as he is now being called, is slated to be baptized which means (aside from Eve Vawter and I prepping snacks for the hopefully televised ceremony) that George will don his first dress! Baptismal gowns are all the rage among royal folk, or rather one gown in particular that royal babies have been wearing for 167 years. Too bad Prince George won’t be permitted to wear that one. More
The Church of England is considering a new style of baptism to attract parishioners that rarely go to church. It’s called a “Champagne Christening.” The church believes it will attract young couples who have little or no connection to the church but still want to have an occasion to celebrate their family.

58-year-old South Carolina minster Larry DuRant has secured his own little special place in hell by sexually abusing young girls because he told them it would keep them from becoming pregnant, getting STDs and “liking other girls.” I can’t even. More
So, girl sports. Like cheerleading. Maddy can’t play football wearing a full uniform and a helmet because the boys may have lustful thoughts about her but she should totally go and put on a short skirt and wave some pom-poms around on the sidelines because no boys in the history of the world have ever lusted after a cheerleader.

Exodus International, a very large “ex-gay” ministry is having a change of heart in the ways of ex-gayifying. The president, Alan Chambers, has announced that the organization will be closing due to an epiphany that he and his church have done “wrong” by queer people and their families. Happy Pride month!

My husband and I both grew up in families that regularly attended church, but our attendance waned as we got older. By the time we met, neither of us had attended church in years. We decided that if we were going to raise a family, it was important that we start going to church again. Two weeks after we got married, we found a church and have gone almost every Sunday since.

Escambia Academy High School, the private school where Chelsey attended, prohibits any “extraneous items” from being worn during graduation ceremonies, according to their dress code. Now her diploma and transcripts are being held until she pays a $1000 fine – a fine Chelsey says is worth every penny. More
Like most of America I have been horror-struck, watching the news footage of the terrifying events that took place in Moore, Oklahoma. Â I’ve seen dozens of interviews in the past few days, but one in particular stuck out yesterday. Wolf Blitzer was interviewingÂ Rebecca Vitsmun, a young mom who narrowly survived by fleeing her home moments before the tornado struck with her 19-month-old son in tow. It was a typical survivor interview right up until Blitzer asked the magic question. More
To me, this failed Afghanistan law just a really, really thinly veiled attempt to keep women submissive and quiet. And this is one of the huge reasons I am an atheist, because religion has been and always will be a seemingly valid excuse for humans to do really horrible things to one another. More
Kalli Atteya deserves a space right next to the famously bad ass mom who dismantled prostitutionÂ rings looking for her abducted daughter. Kalli not only traveled to the ends of the earth looking for her missing son, but she found him. And all it took was two years, a privateÂ investigator, months in disguise, and a motorized cart.
