Today, we are going to talk about one word… “homosexual.”  And how it was never in the Bible. Nope, NEVER!A handful of verses in the Bible have been falsely taught and used to propagate modern homophobia and transphobia. But, guess what?  The words homosexual, gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender were never actually in the Bible!That all changed in 1946 when an American Bible company mistranslated two ancient Greek words. And this mistake became the foundation of the anti-LGBTQ+ culture that still exists today!Support the show

The words we use mean things and our choice of them matters. Today, Josh asks us to tackle the meaning of "purity" as it is used its Scriptural contexts and how it has been twisted and weaponized to control the bodies of people who grew up inside of "Purity Culture." Josh wants a rebrand campaign to call it "Disgust Culture" instead. Emily is rightly tired of listening to more men talking about her body.

The older I get and more experience I gain, the more I've come to appreciate my eroticism as a part of me. I haven't always been this way though. In all of its good intentions, sometimes people internalize the heart of the purity message by being void of sexual feelings or urges, as if it's a virtue to not have any sexual thoughts or feelings. The reality is that just as we are spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical beings, we're also sexual beings. We can grow sexually as we grow spiritually.  And my sexpert guest on the podcast today describes exactly that process of growing erotically (or sexually) as we grow spiritually. Her name is Brandi Harris. She's a licensed marriage therapist that is also a Christian and helps individuals and couples grow sexually.

Hyperlinked show notes found at mereliberty.com/035 Summary - Decriminalizing Sex: Where Prostitution Meets Purity Culture An odd twist in my research on a libertarian theory of reproductive rights (and abortion), I've had to dive into how the criminal justice system treats the crime of rape. In doing so, I've been led to what might appear to be very strange. The parallels between the culture surrounding illicit sex work and evangelical purity culture. I cannot say where any causal relations lay between the two, only that they appear to be, strikingly, correlated. And correlated in such a way that Christians in particular must pay attention and take heed. In this episode, I seek to break down the legal concerns regarding sex work and prostitution, and the connections to human trafficking. The connection to human trafficking is difficult given the prevalence and nature of trauma. I wrote a review of Dr. Gabor Mate's work on trauma in a documentary called, The Wisdom of Trauma. One aspect he addresses are the reasons why women will prostitute themselves and it seems to stem exclusively from trauma. But, when it comes to dealing with traumatized people, there is a principled disagreement about how to deal with sex workers with trauma: use the legal violence of the state to rescue women, penalize women, or only in response to violence done against them. But there might be another way to deal with trauma, trafficking, and voluntarily choosing to prostitute oneself. And that lays in education concerning sex and intimate relationships. I've found a strong correlation between the views of men and women by "Johns" and "primps" and the view of men and women in evangelical purity culture. Have evangelicals unwittingly set the stage for sex trafficking and prostitution? I think there's good reason to believe that American evangelicalism contributed to the problems some evangelicals are trying to now fix, regarding sexual violence. The popular view by Christian anti-human  trafficking organizations is to embrace the Nordic model - make the men behave! Use the threat of legal violence to make bad men behave better. But does this work? I also explain why the nature of economics will not allow for legal violence to "deter" bad behavior. And why this necessitates decriminalizing sex work if we're going to improve societal and legal views concerning women and sex. DISCLAIMER: While this episode is aimed at supporting decriminalizing sex work, it is not an endorsement of sex work as morally legitimate. I hold and maintain a Christian sexual ethic (sex is designed by God only for heterosexual marriage relationships), though I believe evangelical "purity culture" is an unbiblical, anti-Christian view.  Main Points of Discussion 00:00    Introduction Ep. 292: Decriminalizing Prostitution: Can Christians Support it? 01:45    Definitions: 'sex work', 'prohibition', 'prostitution', trafficking' 04:04    Why is it important to understand these distinctions 05:46    Difference between 'decriminalization' and 'legalization' 07:58    Explanation of legalization; Nevada vs Rhode Island 09:08    The feminist argument against decriminalization (Nordic model) 09:55    Clip from Julie Bindell's opening statement at the Soho Forum 13:43    "The bleakest view of masculinity" 14:50    Do we know how many sex workers are trafficking vs voluntarily participating? 16:24    Clip from "Sold in America" - a "John's" view of women in purchasing sex 17:41    Evangelical Purity Culture Detour 18:09    Does 'rape culture' exist?  19:28   Nancy Pearcy: how "nominal" evangelical men skew divorce and domestic violence data in the church 23:01    What does evangelical purity culture have to do with decriminalizing prostitution? 27:08    What the so-called "experts" told evangelical women about how to have a good Christian marriage 27:33    Quotes cited by Shelia Wray Gregorie's, The Great Sex Rescue 31:55    Ontological distinctions between men and women don't require a predator/prey relationship 33:39    Connecting the stigma of sex in purity culture to the stigma found in legal prohibition of prostitution 34:21    Legal denial of basic human rights - No Humans Involved 36:22    The unjust handling of sexual violence by our criminal justice system 40% of police officers perpetrate domestic violence in their own homes. 37:41    Are victims of rape stigmatized because of prostitution, or is prostitution stigmatized because of certain views about women, already discussed? (Connection to spiritual manipulation of religious values) 41:57    The perpetual victim status of women - propagated by feminists and patriarchalists 43:17    How do we change society to value women and children, abhor the evils done against them, and still maintain a system of justice? 43:59    Misunderstanding economic demand is resulting with failure and unintended consequences 46:39    In countries that have the Nordic model, no decrease in demand but an increase in antisocial behavior 50:18    Compare to New Zealand - decriminalized sex work in 2007 51:05    Why Christians should care about decriminalizing sex work - even while we don't endorse it. 52:12    Let our yes mean yes, and our no mean no - justice requires it. 52:58    Concluding thoughts - what decriminalizing prostitution means for Christian teaching about a biblical sexual ethic.

Rachel Overvoll is a Somatic Sex and Intimacy Coach and published author of Finding Feminism. Using her credentials from the Somatica Institute and Kinsey Institute, she works through the mediums of embodiment and self-attunement to help clients step into the power of an authentic and pleasure-centered life. The term “purity culture” is generally associated with the white, American, Evangelical Christian Purity Movement. However, evangelicals don't have a monopoly on the ethics of purity culture. The specifics vary by religion and culture, but gender and sexual control upon which purity culture stands is global, cross-religious, and cross-cultural.  Rachel and Dr. Kate talk about the Purity Culture that conflates women's worth with their virginity.Couples don't even hold hands til engaged. Any distractions to man's path to God are a sin.But actually, men keep control over women's bodies in the form of sexual oppression.Some see it as positive…but in the Purity Culture, it is embedded so deeply and really is oppression. Rachel talks about how Purity culture instills in women a deep hatred of their bodies and mistrust of their bodies because they are taught it causes evil.Women in this culture cannot enjoy their bodies as it causes themselves and men to sin.The process of women trying to leave the Purity culture is also part of the conversation: Regaining love of your body, and knowing you deserve pleasure.Dr. Kate and Rachel talk about:1. what purity culture is and some of the lessons it teaches children growing up in it 2. How did Rachel begin to unpack purity culture messaging? 3.   How does purity culture impact how someone shows up for themselves? For a partner? 4.  How can someone recovering from purity culture begin to explore what is pleasurable for them? 5. How can someone deal with the shame that's rooted in purity culture as they begin their exploration of pleasure? And so much more.

We have been told by Christians that our opinion on LGBTQ+ people is invalid—that our opinion is invalid because we have two children who are part of that community, and of course, we would just change our opinion to justify them.No! Let me tell you something. Since our two kids came out, we have pondered, prayed, pressed for answers. We have sought, studied, searched for God. We listened and asked and listened some more. And through it all we heard that still small voice, expressing truth and love and transcendent peace.Don't you dare tell me that our opinion is invalid and doesn't matter.We are the ones whose opinion DOES matter, because we have something very important at stake—two very important somethings.Support the show

Toxic Christianity has resulted in so much harm, so much pain. It is based in a behavior-focus, rules-based, nonaffirming religion that puts God in a box and justifies rejection, condemnation, and the suffering it imposes.   This teaching is given in such a controlling, cult-like way, with manipulation, threats, gaslighting, that it can be difficult to get out of. That is why we do this work. To help you deconstruct those false beliefs, so you can build a beautiful spiritual journey. When you start to deconstruct your faith, when you open the box that religion has put God in, when you begin to set your heart free, people will say all kinds of things. Why?  To get you back in line. To deal with their own fear. To maintain control. Today, we want to share things people will accuse you of when you start deconstructing, so you are best prepared to respond and stay on this beautiful journey you are on. Support the show

Rachel Welcher and Amber discuss holding up God's sexual ethic while proclaiming the truth that Jesus forgives and how purity is not a badge of honor that promises us a spouse, a great marriage or a fulfilled sex life. Questions Discussed During Talking Back to Purity Culture: (8:37) As a young, Christian female growing up in the 90's you read books like I Kissed Dating Goodbye, When God Writes Your Love Story, among others. What messages did you begin to internalize in your youth about Christian sexuality and marriage? (13:23) What are some of the things that God does teach about purity in marriage from his word that differ from some of the messages authors would share? 918:07) Regarding your book, Talking Back to Purity Culture, you said, "My goal is not to create a new sexual ethic but to help the church return to a more faithful, orthodox understanding of the Bible says about sexuality and the grace and forgiveness we have through Jesus Christ." Will you expound on that a bit? (22:46) You write, "We wore purity rings as badges of honor, forgetting that it is Jesus who cleanses us from all unrighteousness. The Christian pursuit of sexual purity is biblical, but it must flow out of a recognition that it is Jesus who makes us pure." How does that shift change everything? (25:42) Christian teachings on purity will often place more responsibility on women to preserve the purity of both genders through modest dressing, body language, and so on. Where does this fall short and what are some more healthy ways we can discuss these topics with girls today? (34:13) Reading books in a group can help facilitate conversation on hard topics. How did you encouraged those conversations when you were teaching? (36:43) I deeply appreciate that you end each chapter with discussion questions and an activity. With that said, when readers get to the end of your book, what lessons do you hope they will have learned about sexual purity?
