Biblical Sexuality

An Issue of Modesty (Confessions of a Reformed Bikini Wearer Who Still Aspires to Be Fashionable)

Rita Dunaway

First a disclaimer. As suggested by the title of this post, the only thing that "qualifies" me to be blogging on this topic is the fact that I was once dismissive of the virtue of modesty, but have since examined my former thoughts and attitudes on the subject and found them wanting.

A number of the online comments to my Op-Ed on The Tilted Kilt raised a great point: what is the difference between patronizing the TK, where busty waitresses wear bikini tops, and going to the beach or pool, where lots of women wear bikinis?

The Supreme Court Must Be Stopped

320px-SCOTUSbuilding 1st Street SE

The recent rulings removed all doubt, if there ever was any, that the Supreme Court is solidly pro-homosexual as well as its existing record of being pro-abortion. The rulings against DOMA and in favor of homosexual marriages, soon will filter down to all states, through dozens of local court cases. Gays will not only be given equality in marriage, they have already been granted a special status through our hate crime laws.

A Tilted Gospel

Rita Dunaway

If you follow my blog, you know that quite a controversy has been stirred up in Harrisonburg about the opening of "The Tilted Kilt" here in town. A couple of weeks ago, following on the heels of two separate Op-Eds raising a variety of concerns about the business, an ad appeared on the back page of the newspaper. It stated:

To Betty Cook, et al.

Rita Dunaway

If you read my last post about The Tilted Kilt, which was published by the Daily News Record, you won't be surprised that I've been receiving some online comments about it and about the interview I did with our local television station. Now I am certainly no stranger to the feeding frenzy that is the online comment venue. But I must say that I was a bit taken aback by some of the commentary on this particular issue.

Will Boy Scouts Remain "Morally Straight"?

Morally Straight

I was slightly less disturbed by the Boy Scouts of America's new membership policy after reading it in the context of its preamble.  While the new policy specifies that no youth may be denied membership because of sexual orientation or preference alone, the preamble insists that: "Scouting is a youth program, and any sexual conduct, whether homosexual or heterosexual, by youth of Scouting age is contrary to the virtues of Scouting."

Christianity Is Not Cool

Jason Collins 2012 3

NBA veteran Jason Collins' decided to come out as an open homosexual this week, making him the first active openly gay athlete on any major U.S. team. I am a lifelong lover of all things basketball, but to be honest I don't really care to know about this man's sexual preferences. That is not really the point, though...this is about forcing everyone to accept and embrace homosexuality regardless of their religious beliefs.

The Tilted Kilt - Peddling Sex in the Valley Mall

Rita Dunaway

The Tilted Kilt has grown out of our society's persistent lack of genuine respect for women, its failure to appreciate real (but much more costly) intimacy, and its lack of concern for the well being of others. ... Being employed at this kind of restaurant is a subtle form of prostitution...

Peddling Sex in the Valley Mall

A new Tilted Kilt restaurant opened yesterday in the Valley Mall despite repeated appeals to Mall Management and to Kilt representatives to either drop its plans or provide its female waitresses with more appropriate uniforms that are consistent with Valley standards of decency.

Bradlee Dean: How America Really Feels about 'Homosexual' Marriage


If they can get you asking the wrong questions, they don’t have to give you the right answers."- Bradlee Dean

In light of the Supreme Court hand-picking the issue of homosexual marriage this week – an issue that has been settled by our Creator, the laws of our republic and the righteous compliance of the American people – I thought it was important to ask where the American people are deriving the belief that radical homosexual marriage is accepted by a majority of our citizens.

Christian-owned Businesses Confronting Culture


The freedom of Americans to run their businesses according to the dictates of their consciences is being challenged, coast to coast, by President Obama’s Department of Justice and local governing bodies. The common instigators are laws against sexual orientation discrimination and Health & Human Services’ contraceptive and abortifacient mandate.

Jerry Sandusky Laws: Sick and Twisted


In recent months, “progressive” lawmakers, activist attorneys and militant homosexual pressure groups have launched a fierce campaign to ban therapeutic help for child victims of monsters like homosexual pedophile Jerry Sandusky. California has already passed such a law (SB 1172).

Sexual Integrity: Saving Sex for Marriage


What is sexual integrity? “It is to consistently live your life with the highest moral sexual standards -- consistently guarding your mind, will and emotions from sexual impurity. The word integrity means whole, undivided, and void of hypocrisy. To have sexual integrity is to be the same in the dark as you are in the light – not double-minded with contradictory thoughts, word, and deeds.”

The Dark Side of Pornography Part 1 - Faux Sex


Note: The following article, in three parts, is Chapter 11 from my book "The Dark Side of Technology: Restoring Balance in the Digital Age". In this book, I have tried to be as clear and honest as I can be. It is my goal to shed Light on what are some of the darkest areas of our culture. Please let me warn you that, in this article/chapter, I do not hold anything back. This is an honest – and, please note, explicit - appraisal of the nature of pornography in technology today. It is important to me that you understand that as you begin to read.

Is Pornography Really Wrong?

When it comes to porn, the question facing many men and women is simple: is it really wrong? Is it really that big of a deal? I mean, it’s just an image on a screen. It’s not someone I know, or someone I’m having an actual affair with, so I’m still faithful to my future (or current) wife. It’s just sexual release, like masturbation, and we all know that masturbation is not condemned in the Bible. It’s not even mentioned.
