This is so not hard to figure out. In fact if you asked me to come up with the perfect formula to enable under-the-radar perverts I don't think I could do any better than the following:

Step 1: Brainwash a person from childhood to believe that "others" are the problem: gays, feminists, non-christians, welfare recipients, anybody who "ain't from around here". If you're not one of those things then you're doing alright!

Step 2: More brainwashing: unquestionable authority is good for people. Men and women should fit into strict gender roles with power structures clearly defined, the husband is responsible for all decision making.

Step 3: Keep your teens from dating, tell them that God is the only thing you need in marriage so why talk about it or even get to know the person you're marrying? Does he go to your church? Does your father approve? Then ladies what more could you want!

Step 4: scandal? I'm SHOCKED!

no check that, I'm faking being shocked. always, guys.

sorry about the celeb news commentary, you can all get back to your real lives.

Ugh. #2 and #3. Women mean absolutely nothing to them. You can't say you love your daughter(s) and then treat them that way. It's disgusting.

Only tangentially related, but a FB friend linked this yesterday and just wow.

Wow. That's some impressive intellectual contortions.

I'm not saying you "manipulate" her, I'm saying you "discipline" her which is totally different because you are the one with the power so that makes you right.

Oh, okay then. *boggles*

I love how everyone is soooo shocked. For me, I'm far from surprised because of all the things you've listed above.

Well, you're completely right.

I feel so sad for the young-ish adults in the situation, because I feel like they've been set up to fail.

Yesssss. And they are shocked, and blaming themselves... they were put on a wrong wrong path.

Heck, yes. And there's also the part where their church tells them God doesn't really care what they do, as long as they attend services and accept Jesus as their savior -- unless they fit into the groups mentioned in #1, in which case God does care about their actions, and they're pretty much damned to hell.

OMG! This is such a GREAT AMAZING POST! LOVE IT!!!! Though, I don't even know who's arguing #2. I still think it's a great piece. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this. You placed a smile on my face :)
