It’s Friday! June 28, 2013

Drink of the Week:

Deschute’s Mirror Pond Pale Ale: A little hoppie for my taste, but it’s refreshing light on the hot summer days we have been having. A word of advice: Do not take a mouthful of it when thinking you are drinking a mouthful of Angry Orchard’s Hard Cider. It will cause you to spew in the sink as Denise found out earlier this week.

Twelve year old female football player banned from the field because the Christian school administrator is afraid that she will incite lust. Just another way culture blames women for men’s lust.  If the students aren’t working  self control in their thoughts now, they are going to have a real problem when they get out in the world where both men and women  who are “gasp” executives, clerks, mechanics, postal workers, doctors, cheerleaders…

For a great blog hashing out these ideas far better than I could, see Modesty: I Don’t Think it Means What You Think it Means  by Rachel Held Evans who points out “The truth is, a man can choose to objectify a woman whether she’s wearing a bikini or a burqa. We don’t stop lust by covering up the female form; we stop lust by teaching men to treat women as human beings worthy of respect”

Blog of the Week:
A great post about what foster parents do for their foster kids and how much they love them.
