But right now? We’re about to get in the weeds of one of our favorite topics with some of our fan favorites.On todays episode we are diving head first into the fucked up world of abstinence pledges, purity rings, and knee length skirts.
That’s right, we are going deep in the purity culture discussion and we aren’t pulling out.
Joining us are three powerhouse guests.
First is the most rockin’ reverend we’ve ever met.
Nadia Bolz-Weber is an ordained Lutheran Pastor, and founder of House for All Sinners & Saints in Denver: a progressive, queer-inclusive Lutheran congregation. She’s written three New York Times bestselling memoirs, including Shameless: A Sexual Reformation, which takes on what she sees as the harmful ideas about sexuality that Christianity has promoted throughout history. She’s the creator and host of The Confessional podcast, a pop-up prayer network called The Chapel, and a wildly inspirational Substack called The Corners.
Next up is Alice Greczyn - an actress, author, and founder of Dare to Doubt. Her story includes a painful yet rewarding transition from Christianity to atheism, a journey that inspired her to found DaretoDoubt.org, a resource site for people detaching from belief systems they come to fnd harmful.
And last, and probably least, Eric Skwarczynski is the host and creator of the Preacher Boys podcast, which is a platform for survivors’ stories about a deeply disturbing pattern of sexual predation and abuse claims within the Independent Fundamental Baptist movement.
You won’t want to miss a single second of todays show, so let’s get started with our personal Fuck You to Purity Culture, featuring Nadia Bolz Weber, Alice Greczyn, and Eric Skwarczynski. Also…
