Angie the Anti-Theist ranting on Rick Warren, Saddleback, and an interpretation of Scripture that leads to Christian women staying in abusive marriages.



Anti-Woman: (By Kathryn Joyce - buy her book. If you like my videos, you'll probably love it.)

From Joyce's article, the statistic I mentioned in full context:

"Nancy Nason-Clark, a sociologist at the University of New Brunswick who studies religion and violence, says that while domestic violence rates are consistent in and out of church, Christian women stay much longer, and in much more violent situations, than do non-Christians. When a religious woman is victimized by her partner, shes in some ways more vulnerable—not to the abuse, but to feeling that she should stick it out, and stick to the church for help. Shes more likely to blame herself, to think that if shes better, the suffering will end.

For more information on my personal history with domestic violence, check out my blog If you like what you read, please sign this statement saying "I wanna buy your book" for prospective literary agents or publishers:

I wrote about Warren about a year ago on my blog. I'm also very upset about him condoning women to stay in abusive relationships. Wrote about domestic abuse case I got involved with in my church years ago. Seriously pisses me off - and pisses me off that Obama had anything to do with Warren. Very well explained - everything you say is so familiar to me. Helping the friend flee from one side of the states to the other has totally and completely set me against the bullshit christian women are expected to put up with within their own supposed support system. Rant away!!!!!!!!!!!!
