by Bob Brigham

Disgraced televangelist Jim Bakker’s doomsday buckets of food received a culinary review from Rhett McLaughlin and Link Neal of Good Mythical Morning, the Friendly Atheist reported.

“Today, we taste the apocalypse,” the review began. “When we heard televangelist Jim Bakker was selling doomsday food stored in buckets, we knew we had to get our hands on it.”

“He went to prison for accounting fraud, but now he’s back and selling giant buckets of non-perishable apocalypse food,” they continued. “I just want to say, we do not endorse Jim or his food, but we sure do want to eat it and rank it.”

Brief Critique of the J. Daly editorial: Does Casual Sex Empower Women?

Brief Critique of the J. Daly ed: Does Casual Sex Empower Women?

In the midst of looking up Jim Daly’s contact information (so I could tweet him a link of my previous page), I found this linked to on his Twitter page (he wrote it):

(Link) Does Casual Sex Empower Women? by Daly

Here is the part that caught my attention:

    The cultural impact of casual sex

    Sadly, the cheapening of sex is having a long-term impact on marriage… which, in turn, negatively impacts parenting. It’s a tragic chain-reaction of events that work together to undermine the institution of family.

I know that Focus on the Family has a new family-centric film to promote ((Link): unfortunately), and I see the heading there says “cultural impact,” but Mr. Daly, the fact is, some women never marry and never have children, including Christian women.

The Bible does not say God promises all women a marriage partner not even the ones who pray for one and who want one.

If you see my previous post (link), you can see the stats on the number of singles in America.

Many women today are staying single these days, some against their wishes.

(That’s right, the typical conservative Christian canard that women are choosing to stay single because they hate marriage, hate men, or put career above marriage, or had tons of marriage proposals but turned them all down because they were too picky, are false).

There are plenty of Christian women such as myself (though I am half-agnostic now), who were raised in church and by Christian parents to expect, plan for, and count on marriage.

I had hoped for marriage. I still find myself single. I did not plan on being never-married into my 40s. I may never marry.

I am still a virgin. I have never had children.

The church does not support adult virginity – they ignore or shame adult celibate singles (a few links with examples of that can be found at the end of this post, and all over this blog if you search).

It makes no sense, and I see no biblical support, to suggest the only or main reason to argue against casual sex is on the basis of how it may “impact marriage and family.”

Jim Bakker’s Co Host (his wife?) admits to having had five abortions

Jim Bakker’s Co Host (his wife?) admits to having had five abortions

I was watching Jim Bakker’s religious show, and his blond co-host, who I believe is his current wife(?) and her name is Lori (or Lisa?) had five abortions.

Bakker said this on his show, that the blond lady, Lori, admits, in a book she had published, to having had five abortions.

I generally do not support abortion. God can forgive women who have had abortions.

My point here is not to beat up on Lori Bakker for having had abortions.

I’m not sure if when Lori had the abortions if she was a Christian at the time or not (but I do not believe that fully matters).

I would assume Lori was unmarried at the time, that these unborn children were the result of fornication (premarital sex), but I could be wrong about that (after all, sometimes married women get abortions, not just the unmarried).

Assuming she was a single woman, that the unborn she carried and had aborted were the product of pre-marital sex, it’s another nail in the coffin for me personally to the all the Christian pontificating about how deeply they feel sex is for marriage only, that they really do not care or live by these values.

Many Christians only pay lip service to the concept of virginity – while some Christians in recent years have actually begun attacking the concept in books and blogs, saying it is mean spirited to pass virginity off as an expectation, because some fornicators get hurt feelings when they hear that their pre marital sex is a sin.

Anyway, with every passing day, with every passing story and confession of Christian sexual sin, I am realizing that if given precautions (condoms, birth control, legalized abortion), one may as well go out and have sex and not worry about getting pregnant or getting a disease.

There is no expectation for chastity in today’s Christian culture, never mind Non Christian culture. Those of us who have stayed virgins into our 40s get no rewards for it, if anything, churches either ignore us or treat us like losers.

So this lady had FIVE abortions – again, likely due to being sexually promiscuous – and is now married to a semi Christian guy (Bakker) and seems to be living the high life.

She does not appear to have suffered any long lasting damage from sleeping around and having had abortions.

I am not seeing a good foundation or rationale why a grown, single woman should bother remaining a virgin into her forties.

I used to be naive and think that other Christians would respect the fact I was a virgin waiting for marriage to have sex, but now I see 99% of them consider me naive or a freak or a laughing stock; Christians EXPECT me to have sex before marriage and are even FINE and DANDY with it.

Christians can’t wait to reassure me after I have pre marital sex (even if it comes down to getting an abortion afterwards) that God still loves me and forgives me for it all.
