Church Forced Out Woman Who Complained Pastor Regularly Sexually Harassed Her
As I was sharing with someone on Twitter today, it’s Christian men and Christian churches like this one (mentioned in this story linked to below) that caused me to abandon the “Equally Yoked” doctrine years ago.
(Equally Yoked – Christian belief that a Christian single must only marry another self professing Christian.)
I’m completely serious when I told that person on Twitter I’d rather date a non-perverted atheist than a Christian who sexually harasses women.
Furthermore, look at how the church responded to this woman’s harassment claims – not by protecting and siding with the woman, but by protecting the pervert!
If you are a single Christian woman, churches are not safe places to meet potential mates. Churches are not safe places to get boyfriends or husbands.
I was taught by my Christian parents as I was growing up that I should seek out churches to find dates and a husband, but the older I get, I don’t see churches as being any safer or having better quality men than any other venue.
I would assume that this church is a “gender complementarian” church.
Complementarians often like to bray that they believe women are equal in value to men, just not in role.
Complementarians like to insist that though they teach women cannot have the same rights and roles as men, and that they believe men have “boss like” authority over wives, does not mean that they do not respect women. It’s all a bunch of fake hooey and propaganda.
At the end of the day, look at how complementarians TREAT women, not what they SAY about women: complementarians only feign caring and concern about women and woman’s safety. At the end of the day, complementarians will always throw girls and woman under the bus, especially if it’s to save a man’s career or reputation.
If you are a single Christian (especially a woman or girl), never, ever take dating advice from Christians – because most of them will do things like fire YOU if you complain that a male staffer is harassing you, or, they will tell you to stay married to a man, EVEN IF he is abusing you or you discover he’s looking at child pornography (I have actual examples of all these things on my blog).

Female Dragonflies Are Pretending to Die in Order to Avoid Irritating Males
by Harriet Marsden / April 2017
Women throughout history have been forced to some extreme lengths in order avoid an aggressive male.
Running away, using a fake name, playing dumb…but playing dead seems intense, no?
Not for these dragonflies.
A new scientific study has observed one species of female dragonfly plummeting to the ground and playing dead, in order to avoid male suitors.
Published in the journal Ecology, the study is entitled: ‘Faking death to avoid male coercion: extreme sexual conflict resolution in a dragonfly.’
Rassim Khelifa, an entomologist from the University of Zurich, Switzerland and the study’s author, first observed this phenomenon in 2015 when he was collecting larvae in the Swiss Alps.
… Female moorland hawkers, unlike other species of dragonflies, aren’t protected by their male mates when they lay their eggs, leaving them vulnerable to harassment.
Because her eggs can be fertilised by just one sexual encounter, mating again right afterwards could potentially damage their reproductive systems.
…According to Khelifa, feigning death to avoid sexual harrassment is almost unique: this would probably be “the fifth in the animal kingdom after a nuptial gift-giving spider, two species of robber fly, and a European mantis”.

- She Matters: If they’re men who hold shoddy views about sex and women, it follows that their advice to women will also be shoddy.
- …It’s a common theme among men, including many so-called relationship experts. And that’s a huge problem.
- It should be obvious why that’s an issue, but in case it isn’t: You have men who hold screwed-up views about sex and women telling women how to be better women to land a man.
- If the perspective with which they view women is shoddy, then it follows that their advice to women will also be shoddy.
