Alabama pastor on Roy Moore allegations: ‘There are some 14-year-olds’ who ‘could pass for 20’
Evangelicals and other faith leaders pray with President Donald Trump in the Oval Office. Roy Moore, the Republican candidate for Alabama’s US Senate seat, has received an outpouring of support from pastors and evangelical leaders across the state. One Alabama pastor excused sexual harassment allegations against Moore by saying that “some 14-year-olds… could pass for 20.” Moore and his supporters say critics doubt the legitimacy of the accusations from multiple women.

Deadstate.org is not a great source, but this seems likely: Hurricanes are caused by homosexuality. http://deadstate.org/and-now-heres-the-evangelicals-blaming-hurricanes-on-the-gays/
Now here’s a new twist on Paradise!
Women will have a partner (though perhaps a former slave) who will be young and perpetually sexually ready. The article claims that “Al-Salman continued: “The Prophet Muhammad said: ‘The dwellers of Paradise have clothing that never wears out, youth that never wanes, and a penis that never bends.’” though, since this site has many articles of very dubious reliability, I won’t search for the quote.
“In effect, Saudi Arabia legitimizes fundamentalism, religious discrimination, intolerance and the oppression of women. Saudi women not only can’t drive, but are also told by some clerics that they mustn’t wear seatbelts for fear of showing the outlines of their bodies.”–Nicholas Kristof in The New York Times http://www.nytimes.com/2015/10/29/opinion/sentenced-to-be-crucified.html?action=click&pgtype=Homepage&module=opinion-c-col-right-region®ion=opinion-c-col-right-region&WT.nav=opinion-c-col-right-region
Tim Brooks warns that the SCOTUS ruling will lead to LGBTs forcing themselves on heterosexuals.
But ISIS considers that the taking of slaves and concubines remains fully justified by the Kor’an.
ISIS states its justification for the enslavement of women
“One should remember that enslaving the families of the kuffar — the infidels — and taking their women as concubines is a firmly established aspect of the Shariah, or Islamic law,” the group says in an online magazine published Sunday.
The title of the article sums up the ISIS point of view: “The revival (of) slavery before the Hour,” referring to Judgment Day.
The fourth edition of the group’s English-language digital magazine called “Dabiq” said that female members of the Yazidi sect, an ethnically Kurdish minority living mostly in Iraq, may legitimately be captured and forcibly made concubines or sexual slaves.
I have on reliable advice that a mayor of an Iranian town on the Caspian recommended a means of discouraging mixed-sex swimming: Introducing sharks into the Caspian Sea. He allegedly even tried and failed. Little did he know that there are fresh-water sharks in the world. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Freshwater_shark. Thankfully, he is not that knowledgeable.

In a 2001 blog post under the pen name William Wallace II, Driscoll blatantly asserts his patriarchal understanding of women’s role in the world, essentially calling them “penis homes”:
The first thing to know about your penis is, that despite the way it may seem, it is not your penis. Ultimately, God created you and it is his penis. You are simply borrowing it for a while.
While His penis is on loan you must admit that it is sort of just hanging out there very lonely as if it needed a home, sort of like a man wondering the streets looking for a house to live in. Knowing that His penis would need a home, God created a woman to be your wife and when you marry her and look down you will notice that your wife is shaped differently than you and makes a very nice home.
Therefore, if you are single you must remember that your penis is homeless and needs a home. But, though you may believe your hand is shaped like a home, it is not. And, though women other than your wife may look like a home, to rest there would be breaking into another man’s home. And, if you look at a man it is quite obvious that what a homeless man does not need is another man without a home.
But Laycock’s is a lonely voice among advocates of religious exemptions. More typical is Rick Warren, the evangelical megachurch pastor, who says the battle to preserve religious liberty “in all areas of life” may be “the civil rights movement of this decade.” Warren goes on to say — I am not making this up — that “Hobby Lobby’s courageous stand, in the face of enormous pressure and fines,” is the equivalent of the Birmingham bus boycott.
When I read that kind of rhetoric from our country’s loftier pulpits, I understand why the fastest-growing religious affiliation in America is “none.”
