4 Lies About Sex I Learned From the Church

ShareTweetPin I’ve heard people say that growing up as an evangelical meant they never talked about sex. This wasn’t my experience. I grew up in the thick of evangelical purity culture and we talked about sex A LOT. We just spent all of that time talking about how and why NOT to have it. As someone who waited until I was married to have sex, I was assured that I would be guaranteed an easy and rewarding sex life.

Alexander Hamilton Warned Us About Trump and Barr

Impeachment, as we have already seen, will seldom fail to agitate the passions of the whole community, and to divide it into parties more or less friendly or inimical to the accused. In many cases it will connect itself with the pre-existing factions, and will enlist all their animosities, partialities, influence, and interest on one side or the other, and in such cases there will always be the gravest danger that the decision will be regulated more by the comparative strength of parties, than by the real demonstrations of innocence or guilt. Still, the framers of the Constitution gave Congress the power to impeach and remove the president from office foras
