Excerpts:

October 2020

Psychological fallout from the pandemic will cause birth rates to drop, people to stay single for longer and women to sexualise themselves more, experts have predicted.

Experts from the US reviewed 90 studies to help them predict how COVID-19 could shift social behaviours and gender norms — even among those not infected.

They expect planned pregnancies to decrease in response to the global health crisis as people defer marriage and kids, leading some nations’ populations to shrink.

Sex ‘Highly Important’ to a Quarter of Middle-Aged Women, Study Shows

Sex ‘Highly Important’ to a Quarter of Middle-Aged Women, Study Shows

Christian gender complementarians need to get with the program – first and foremost, toss complementarianism in the trash can where it belongs – but secondly, toss out the sexist, strange, or unbiblical beliefs they have about women’s libidos.

Complementarians enjoy living in a fantasy world where they falsely believe that only men want and enjoy sex, and that women don’t enjoy or want sex. This alleviates them of taking responsibility for pleasing women in the bedroom, I suspect.

Excerpts:

Sept 2020
by Chris Melore

CLEVELAND, Ohio — There’s a common belief that people lose interest in sex as they age. A new study finds this isn’t exactly true for many middle-aged women.

Researchers say sex still remains important to the daily lives of over 70 percent of women entering midlife.

The North American Menopause Society (NAMS) shows 27 percent of women continue to rate sex as a high priority throughout midlife. The report looks at more than 3,200 participants in the Study of Women’s Health Across the Nation.

Pastor Quits Church To Become a Stripper and Now Sells X-Rated Pics and Videos Online

Pastor Quits Church To Become a Stripper and Now Sells X-Rated Pics and Videos Online

Before I get to the link about the woman pastor who left pastoring to be a sex kitten on line:

I never, ever want to hear another Christian woman complain on a blog, in a book, a podcast, or on social media that the church “values virginity or sexual abstinence too much,” nor do I need or want to hear any more women talk about how much Christian sexual abstinence pep talks comparing non-virgins to “used chewing gum” made them feel icky.

Because the times have changed.

It’s hard for me to pinpoint exactly when the change happened, but sometime in the last 10 to 20 years, the Christian community stopped supporting sexual abstinence, and they’ve never truly supported adult virgins who remain single over the age of 30.

(They only gave lip service to supporting anyone who is a virgin / celibate, but in practice, they aren’t there for the sexually abstinent; they’re only there to serve the married-with-children people.)

We are living in quite the opposite age now.

The culture has changed. Most people, including Christians and churches, no longer support celibacy and virginity – but rather mock or insult these things. 

In light of the news stories like the one below, or about how, what is it, 70% of (Link): Christian American women comprise abortion seekers, or how up to half or more of the church see (Link):  nothing wrong with unmarried sex, any Christians out there (especially women – it’s usually women, seldom men) who complain that the church emphasizes virginity or sexual purity too much – are quite full of sh*t and have things totally backwards.

The church now openly supports sexual hedonism, and they shame or question adults who remain virgins until marriage.

Are there double standards, sexism, and problems within “Purity Culture” and how sexual purity is taught, or are there problems with the content of it? Yes, certainly.

But none of those issues suddenly excuse extra-marital sex as being fine and dandy.  And the Bible does not support extra-marital diddling.

You can criticize some of the excesses, sexism, or weirdness of Purity Culture and its teachings without completely tossing aside the principles of sexual propriety or without criticizing, shaming, or mocking those adults who are still virgins or celibate.

A word of warning: I am an (Link): ex-complementarian. But as someone who realized complementarianism was false and abandoned it, I did not become a liberal or embrace sexual hedonism as a result.

I disagree with this woman’s lifestyle who is mentioned below. Rejecting complementarianism does not automatically or necessarily turn a woman into a liberal, feminist, bimbo harlot.

I’m putting this warning in here, because the article mentions the woman in the article became a stripper after joining a church that was more egalitarian in regards to gender roles.

I would imagine a lot of complementarians would see that part of the article and say, or reason to themselves, “A-ha, this is what happens when a woman rejects Christian gender complementarianism!” – but alas, no, it is not.

Again, I rejected complementarianism many years ago, but I did not turn into a sexual hedonist or a bi-sexual stripper.

Another warning: If you’re a Christian, stop assuming that the reason why some leave the Christian faith is because they want to live in sexual hedonism.

Some people leave the faith not to indulge in sexual sin, which is a common and false assumption a lot of Christians have, but due to other reasons, ones having nothing to do with sexual sins, or going after some goal or dream in life that may be considered incompatible with the Bible.

People do have legitimate reasons for questioning the faith, ones that don’t have to do with wanting to be kinky. 

There may be some people for whom wanting to be lascivious is one (or a main) motive in leaving the faith, but that is not true for all.

Man Accused of Dismembering, ‘Boiling’ Parents Who Cut Him Off Financially

Man Accused of Dismembering, ‘Boiling’ Parents Who Cut Him Off Financially

The phrase “family values” many not be necessarily un-biblical or anti-biblical, but it’s not taught in the Bible.

So many Christian persons or conservative organizations keep promoting this idea that Nuclear Families are necessary for a society to thrive. I’m not opposed to the Nuclear Family, I don’t want to abolish the Nuclear Family, but I don’t agree with the idea that the Nuclear Family is necessary for a culture, or that it (and marriage and parenthood) are necessary to make a person good or mature.

I see news headlines like the one below, and I realize that belonging to a Nuclear Family doesn’t make a person good, ethical, or wonderful.

A person can be a part of a Nuclear Family and still be a cold-blooded killer. So obviously, something else is going on here – the Jesus of the Bible said it has to do with individual sin – not marital or family status.

The Jesus of the Bible did not teach that the Nuclear Family will save a person or a culture. But Christians sure do keep behaving as though it will.

Did being a member of a Nuclear Family make this man in this news story, Joel Guy Jr, more loving, ethical, responsible or godly? Nope, it sure did not.

If you kill your mom over financial grievances and boil her head in a pot, I think it’s fair to say you’re an evil piece of garbage and that being in a “nuclear family” did nothing to instill character in you.

‘The most horrific thing I’ve ever encountered in police work – in my life’

(KNEWZ) — A trial has begun for Joel Guy Jr. — a man accused of murdering and dismembering his parents for cutting him off financially, then trying to chemically dissolve their bodies to cover up the crime.

According to the Knoxville News Sentinel, a jury has been seated for the trial of Joel Guy Jr., who stands accused of murdering his mother Lisa Guy, 55, and his father Joel Guy Sr., 61.

Authorities claim that Guy Jr’s parents told him during the 2016 Thanksgiving holiday that they would be cutting him off financially. The son denies the charges and has pleaded not guilty.

Man Wearing Bra and Panties Kills Grindr Date With Machete in the Bronx: NYPD

Man Wearing Bra and Panties Kills Grindr Date With Machete in the Bronx: NYPD

I think Grindr is more a “hook up” site than dating site – but you have to be careful, regardless. There are crazies and kooks that use these sites – but simpleton, naive, idiot married people are always instructing lovelorn singles to “just try a dating site!”

Why? So I can run across a wacko who will decapitate me on the first date or at some point later?

This is one of those times, if you are single, you should be glad to be single and/or celibate.

If the victim in the story below was single and celibate, and not trying to meet up with another guy for sex, he would not have been stabbed to death.

There are a few up-sides to being single and celibate, and avoiding stuff like this is one of them.

I’m not clear if the murderer in this story is transgender or if he’s a cross-dressing homosexual. Here’s the link:

Liberals often act as those though they deem to be in a “victim class,” such as homosexuals and lesbians, are above reproach. But every so often, one will come across a news article where the perpetrators are homosexuals or lesbians, as in this case.

(Edit, caveat: well, at least lesbians and homosexuals USED to be in a protected victim class by those on the left, but in the last few years, liberals have thrown both under the bus to promote Transgenderism and “Black Lives Matter.”)

Accusations That Jerry Falwell Jr. and His Wife Becki Are Kinky Perverts Who Sexually Abused College Aged Men

Accusations That Jerry Falwell Jr. and His Wife Becki Are Kinky Perverts Who Sexually Abused College Aged Men

I’ve not had a lot of time to write blog posts the last few months. These news stories that the Falwells were sexual deviants and sexual abusers who hit on young men started popping up a few weeks ago.

I finally have a little time now to blog about it.

The first guy who talked about this in the news says he was working as a pool cleaner, and that the wife had sex with him while the husband, Falwell Jr. watched. He says this ‘relationship’ went on for a few years.

A few days later, another news story broke where a different guy says that when he was in his twenties that Becki Falwell began grooming him for sexual abuse.

He says he was in Becki’s son’s college-aged rock band, and that every time he would go over to the Falwell property to practice music, that Becki would “hit” on him.

It ended with Becki performing oral sex on him unexpectedly as he was in bed, staying over at the Falwell property over night after a band practice.

The guy says the sexual abuse troubled him for years after.

It’s been noted in some reports that Liberty University – where Falwell Jr worked – has clauses stating that the school expects single adults (i.e., the students) to abstain from having sex outside of marriage.

But here we apparently (and allegedly) have married couple Becki and Jerry Falwell engaging in kinky sexual antics with third parties – talk about hypocrisy, expecting your students to live by one standard while you’re living by another.

You can read more about all this at the links below.

I know this gets repetitive at my blog, but here it is again:
Christians continue to disrespect adult singles and mock or dismiss adults (such as myself) who remain celibate, but they are constantly “hyping” marriage as being preferable to singleness.

Many conservative and Christian groups are regularly marketing a message that a decline in marriage rates will ruin the nation, that marriage (and being a parent), is necessary to “fix” our culture.

The marriage-pushing Christians further state that single adults are not as mature, godly, or responsible as their married counterparts. Al Mohler went so far as to say in one of his blog posts or podcasts that childless adults are not fully human.

In my years of running this blog, and prior, I’ve seen too many news stories published of married Christian pastors who are pedophiles or who are committing adultery to believe that marriage causes a person to behave in an ethical manner.

I am more than fed up with the evangelical, Baptist, Protestant Christian propaganda, the steady drumbeat, that married people are somehow “better” than singles, and that singleness is not as good as marriage. I’m not seeing the proof of that.

I do not want to see yet ANOTHER “marriage is better for society and for adults than remaining single is” from Al Mohler or Brad Wilcox, or any of these other marriage-pushing, anti-singles bigots, especially not in light of these news stories that come out every few months about yet ANOTHER well-known Christian personality who has been discovered to be engaged in sexual misbehavior.

It’s strange that this news story has gone quiet the last week or so. Not even the usual spiritual abuse blogs are discussing this – it’s as though they’ve all moved on or forgotten.

Both Jerry Jr. and Becki sound like disgusting, perverted deviants. I don’t have respect for either one.

Allegations Mount in 2017 Deceased Christian Apologist Ravi Zacharias Illicit Online Relationship Scandal – He May Have Been Sexually Harassing Women Staff at a Spa He Owned

Zacharias died a year or two ago. He was a well-known Christian apologist. He used to have a television program on the Christian network TBN years ago.

In the last few years, all sorts of allegations of sexual abuse have arisen around this guy. Here’s a new link about it below.

I do believe he was married.

So many Christians keep promoting marriage and “family values,” yet so many keep getting caught out in clergy sex abuse scandals or extra-marital affairs. I’m not yet seeing how being married is making any of these guys more “godly” or ethical than singles.

I think I remember reading an article saying that Zacharias sexually harassed women who worked at a spa he owns.

I found a few links about that; here’s the first one:

Marriage-Pushing Zealot Wilcox Suggests that Being Single is Immoral: National Review Article

Marriage-Pushing Zealot Wilcox Suggests that Being Single is Immoral: National Review Article

I’ve written about Wilcox many times before. Wilcox is obsessed with marriage and advocating for it, and in the process, he enjoys insulting singleness and adult singles, although the Bible states in 1 Corinthians 7 it is better to remain single than to marry, and of course, as we all know, Jesus of Nazareth, who is highly regarded by many, never married.

Jesus remained single and celibate and never formed his own “nuclear family,” because he was more concerned with establishing a spiritual family, and he taught his followers to be just as, if not, (Link): more concerned with spiritual family than with biological family.

But marriage-idolaters and singles-shamers, such as Wilcox and Al Mohler, continue to promote marriage far too much, and they tend to do so consistently at the detriment of singles.

Allow me to first provide a few excerpts from the National Review piece by Wilcox, then I will explain the flaws with some of the points below the excerpt:

Man Who Lost His Wife Puts Sign in Window Asking for Friends: ‘It’s My Last Resort’

Man Who Lost His Wife Puts Sign in Window Asking for Friends: ‘It’s My Last Resort’

Hello, Christians? Hello, churches?
Instead of obsessing over married-with-children couples and the little kids, teens, and college-aged students (typically in their early 20s), why don’t you stop and realize that the populations in some nations are aging and could use help and companionship?

Stop fixating on The Youth and Nuclear Families and start paying attention to folks outside of those groups – such as never-married singles who are over the age of 29, the divorced, and the widowed.

And let this be a lesson to hyper-marriage-promoters such as (but not limited to) Al Mohler and Bradford Wilcox, that getting married does NOT guarantee that a person will never suffer loneliness in life – if your spouse dies before you do, you will be alone.

If your spouse develops dementia or just loses interest in meeting your emotional needs, you will be alone – while married. 

Being married is not a guarantee that you won’t be lonely.

I wish this guy the best. I hope he’s able to make a friend or two.
