L.B.: The Watchmen


From Slacktivist I love this guy...

Slight tangent for a look at an all-too-real example of why the World's Worst Books are worth exploring as more than just a celebration of wretched writing.

Here's CNN host Glenn Beck:

Are the cataclysmic events of 9/11, Katrina, tsunami, famine and the threat of global pandemic signs we`re living in the end times?

One world government, one world economy, one world vision. Are we creeping even closer to the Book of Revelations` countdown to doomsday? And does an age-old prophecy foretell a Russian-Iranian alliance against Israel as well as a nuclear showdown? Apocalypse now?

We`ll search for answers with Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins, the authors of the wildly successful "Left Behind" series and acclaimed author Joel Rosenberg.

This is on CNN, "the most trusted name in news."

Beck's introduction carefully frames the discussion that is to follow... )

BDSM for Fundamentalist Christians.

LJ-SEC: (ORIGINALLY POSTED BY [info]lupie_stardust)

So, you're a Fundamentalist Christian, and nothing gives you a boner faster than spanking girls' bottoms. BUT! BDSM is a clearly Un-Christian practice! So what do you do?

You rebrand it "Christian Domestic Discipline" and get spanking, of course!

From the site:

What is Christian Domestic Discipline?

A domestic discipline marriage is one in which one partner in the marriage is given authority over the other and has the means to back the authority, usually by spanking.

A Christian Domestic Discipline marriage is one that is set up according to Biblical standards; that is, the husband is the authority in the household. The wife is submissive to her husband as is fit in the Lord and her husband loves her as himself. He has the ultimate authority in his household, but it is tempered with the knowledge that he must answer to God for his actions and decisions. He has the authority to spank his wife for punishment, but in real CDD marriages this is taken very seriously and usually happens only rarely. CDD is so much more than just spanking. It is the husband loving the wife enough to guide and teach her, and the wife loving the husband enough to follow his leadership. A Christian marriage embodies true romance and a Christian man a true hero.
(Boldening my own)

"...A Christian man a true hero."



Though we recognize by its very nature this subject can be erotic, we will keep this website as clean and wholesome as possible. However, we will not seek to deny the erotic nature of some CDD marriages as we believe it is a natural consequence of following God's plan. After all, He created eroticism to be enjoyed inside a Christian marriage."

Now, I have nothing against BDSM, as a seasoned practitioner myself - but this worries me a little. "Wives have no right to beat their husbands" - doesn't seem very fair to me.
What's there to stop someone using this "CDD" as an excuse to beat their "submissive" wives in the name of the Lord?

I *so* got my hopes up ..

.. when I got an email on one of the lists I'm subscribed to, with a link to Lousiana Conservative's Why I am switching to the Democrat Party. I really hoped that maybe someone on the right had realized some of what I've realized about the philosophical similarities between the fundamentalists on the right and the ones on the left, and was reaching across the gap and striking a blow for tolerance, and maybe, just maybe, it was a sign of some unusual sanity and courage over there.

Then I clicked through and read it. Words fail me.
