SARAH HOYT on feel-good Christianity and slut-shaming shaming:

There seems to be a sub-sect of what I – not being evangelical – will call Candy-*ss Evangelical Christians who think that their duty is to go through life being kissy kissy about everything and saying everyone is so wonderful and lovely.

How they reconcile this with the scene in the temple, or with the many cutting remarks of the Nazarene in the Gospels, or with the fact that that he instructed his apostles to shake the dust from their sandals and invoke the judgment of Sodom and Gomorrah on any place that rejected them is beyond me.  How they square serious religious commitment with their saccharine inability to say boo to a mouse is even more puzzling.  And how they manage to square their attitude of approving of everything and blessing everyone with coming down like a ton of bricks on anyone who doesn’t candycoat everything the way they do is most puzzling of all.  I’m going to assume Quaaludes are involved. . . .

I don’t have a dog in this fight – much – but since when did slut-shaming become a worse crime than being a slut, even for self-appointed Christian moralists?

And who in heck thinks this is a good thing?
