Victoria’s Secret is not happy with model Kylie Bisutti. Earlier this week, Bisutti, who says she left modeling to focus on her Christianity, says she was harshly treated by the lingerie brand. After winning a VS Angel modeling competition in 2009, Bisutti says she was floored by the way the brand treated women. Now she’s written a novel called I’m No Angel, which chronicles her VS days. On Wednesday, The New York Post ran an excerpt from Angel, in which Bisutti details how she “felt like a piece of meat.” Keep reading »
My favorite thing about the trailer for “Harmless,” a Christian propaganda/horror movie about the evils of porn, is that this fictional family is being terrorized by a box of porn. Now, let’s just pretend that I actually thought porn was metaphorically evil enough to make a horror film about — I would be far more terrified by the seemingly limitless array of pornography available via the internet, not a little ol’ box of VHS tapes. You know? This isn’t the ’80s!
I won’t beat around the bush: “tips for a happy marriage” from Michelle Duggar are as bad as they sound.
In the season premiere of “19 Kids and Counting” this week, the reality TV mama (whose family is stumping for Rick Santorum) is filmed at a conference on how to have a happy, evangelical Christian marriage in which the man is the authority and head of the household.
Michelle passed out tips from her lecture to the audience and a viewer screengrabbed the advice, where it was posted on Television Without Pity. Not suprisingly, you might want to “keep a barf bag handy” as Faith Goes Pop blogger Lilit Marcus puts it, because Michelle Duggar’s happy marriage tips include become financially dependent on your husband, always keeping your hair did, watch your weight, and being more “loyal” to him than your family and friends.
You can read some of the more egregious tips from “7 Basic Needs Of A Husband” — the workbook off of which Duggar was reading — after the jump: Keep reading »
If you thought pole-dancing died when Miley Cyrus got on the pole, you were wrong. The true death knell is Pole Fitness For Jesus, a pole-dancing class for good Christian ladies in the sleepy town of Old Spring Town, Texas. The women in the Pole Fitness For Jesus class strut in high heels and body roll to uplifting Christian music — not because they’re trying to be sexy, mind you, but because they are honoring their body as a temple. “God gives us these bodies and they are suppose to be our temples and we are suppose to take care of them and that’s what we are doing,” explained Crystal Dean, a pole-dancing instructor, who rightfully points out that judging others for pole dancing is not very Christian. In fact, the few students in the free classes, which meets two Sundays a month, attest they feel a “spiritual connection” on the pole. Hey, whatever makes you feel closer to God — as long as you’re not hurting anybody — is fine with this Christian. Just ask yourself: what would Mary Magdalene do? [KTRK] Keep reading »
It’s been a while since we’ve heard from beauty queen Carrie Prejean, but never fear: the former Miss California is up to her old tricks. Prejean is being sued by “a Christian PR firm,” A. Larry Ross Communications, for bilking a $64,857 bill. They claim Prejean hired their services in April 2009 to spread her “biblically correct” message, but she has never paid her bill.
Hmm, maybe she wasn’t happy with the way they didn’t stop her from ripping off her mic during that hilarious “Larry King” interview? [TMZ] Keep reading »
The only boy who could ever teach me, was the son of a preacher man! And I’m a Jew. But let’s face it, Tammy Faye Bakker’s baby is a full grown hottie. From the sleeve tats to the soulful talk, I couldn’t get enough of Jay on his Sundance channel reality TV show. And now the punky pastor has turned model in the new Kenneth Cole campaign. He’s so hip for being square! Who knew the Bible would make such a stylish accessory? [World of Wonder] Keep reading »
Ellen Degeneres and Portia de Rossi just tied the knot last weekend officially making gay marriage trendhunter worthy. But according to Professor John Boswell, the former chairman of the history department at Yale University, gay marriage is an old-fashioned institution getting a new page in the history books. The Ivy League teacher has done extensive research on homosexuality throughout the ages and discovered that early Christians, including the Pope, were so cool with same-sex committed relationships, they even adorned their churches with frescoes of sweet man love. A painting found at St. Catherine’s Monastery in Mt. Sinai, Israel, depicts two early Christian Saints, St. Sergius and St. Bacchus, getting married back in the 4th Century, with Jesus as the best man. Accounts of their sainthood, up through the 10th Century New Testament, openly united and acknowledged them as “lovers.” But they’re just the tip of the gay Christian iceberg! Keep reading »
