Branch Davidians in the news again

I bet you thought this bunch were all gone. I did. Apparently they are still around.

Branch Davidians caught in yet another power struggle

From The Happy feminist site;

"Feminism has gripped our culture. Here is some historical perspective. In the nineteenth century, the Queen of England said that feminism was a 'mad wicked folly of women’s rights… feminists ought to get a good whipping..' There are not a hundred pastors alive today who would read anything like this out loud. We live in a time in history where we are out of sync with historic understandings of manhood, womanhood."

Doug Phillips, the head of an organization called Vision Forum Ministries, uttered these words last weekend on the occasion of Vision Forum's 2006 Father Daughter retreat in Pine Mountain, Georgia. This event drew more than 500 people at a cost of $595.00 for each father/daughter pair and $185 for each additional daughter. Daughters ranged in age from as young as 5 to women in their 20s.

Read the scary stuff that follows on the site.


Then check out Doug Phillips' journal here for his views on 'manliness' as well as other issues.


The entry about the father-daughter retreat is about halway down under 'It's a Great Day for a Picnic'.

Current Mood: frustrated

Cable access Christianity at it's most entertaining.
Take 10 parts ignorance. Mix with 5 parts pure aggression. Add a pinch of scripture. Then shake camera vigorously. Serve well away from meal time.

Is it just me or does this guy absolutely typify the kind of untrained, overenthusiastic, ego/hate driven Christians we are always talking about here?

Some interesting bits:

First, a "Purity Ball". Oh yay!


Commentary on the "ball":


"...But this is what that little girl is reading to her father from that card: I pledge to remain sexually pure...until the day I give myself as a wedding gift to my husband. ... I know that God requires this of me.. that he loves me. and that he will reward me for my faithfulness."

Why does this seem like it should be a Monty Python skit and not reality?

Second, insanity from Minnesota Republicans:


consider the following excerpts:

"Adopting policies that reflect the principle that every innocent human being, born and unborn, has an inalienable right to life from conception to natural death."

"Abortion without exception is wrong..."

"...legislative guarantees and protection of the father's inalienable right to decide against any unilateral or preemptive decision to terminate his child's developing life."

So, here we are. Forced pregnancies. A man can rape a woman and force her to carry the child to birth. Brilliant.

This is so incredibly myopic.
