Why Is It Always About Sex With Fundamentalists?

Two things were posted online this week that made me clutch my pearls and want to chug down Jesus Juice.

1) Ladies Against Feminism urged their members to spam Miley Cyrus Bible verses, links to books to read and salvation calls. Why? Apparently they think Miley twerking all over MTVs VMA awards leading others down the slippery slope to sin.

Ladies, ladies, I think you forget that Miley Cyrus was always the big Christian child star, what with the thanking of God, praising Jesus and Bible thumping she did in interviews and during award ceremonies. This is the ill you've created by supporting her as a good Disney star that loves the Lord all those years. Spamming her Twitter with all that isn't going to have any effect and seems nasty and harassing to me.

2) Von Ohlman finally managed to get one of his sons betrothed at the ripe old age of 22 years old instead of the straight out of puberty age he seems to favor in his postings at True Love Doesn't Wait. The thing that scares me and makes my inner Lost in Space robot start waving his arms and shouting are these words in the published betrothal -

"A lifelong continual sexual union in which the body of each spouse belongs to the other."
Ick! Ick! Ick! Why is this even being spelled out? It's creepy and very too much information combined with making me think that Ohlman is over there in Tejas mastur-you-know-whatting thinking about this 'sexual union' stuff instead of just looking at porn like most Good Evangelical Christian (tm) men are.

Hang ups for all. Sexual repression tends to bring out these weird little things in True Believers.

  1. Unbreakable covenant of betrothal?
    Since when was an engagement unbreakable?
    Oh, wait. slut-shaming religious culture whereby the woman would be ruined if it was broken off.

    I would comment on more bits, but the whole thing is just, yuck.
