              A Dirty Year
                

              A Dirty Year (PDF ebook)

              By Greer, Bill

              As 1872 opened, the New York Times headlined four stories that symptomized the decay in public morals that the editors so frequently decried: financier Jim Fisk was gunned down in a love triangle; suffragist and free-love advocate Victoria Woodhull was running for president; anti...-vice activist Anthony Comstock battled smut dealers poisoning children's minds; and abortionists were thriving. Throughout the year these stories intertwined in unimaginable ways, pulling in others, both famous and infamous-suffragists Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton; Brooklyn's beloved preacher Henry Ward Beecher; the nation's richest tycoon, Cornelius Vanderbilt; and William Howe, preeminent counsel to the criminal element. From rigged elections, everyday shootings, and attacks on the press to sexual impropriety, reproductive rights, and the chasm between rich and poor, the issues of the day still resonate. Political parties split over a bitterly contested election; suffragist battled suffragist over bettering women's place in society; and pious saints fought soulless sinners, until at year-end this jumble of conflicts exploded in the greatest sensation of the nineteenth century.

              Are you struggling to pray with your spouse? No one would deny prayer is important in a marriage relationship. Over the years, we have scheduled prayer time, relied on impromptu or spontaneous prayer and been urged into our prayer closets by circumstances. For us, with our busy s...chedules and my husband's unpredictable work schedule, the only way we have found to be consistent in prayer is to use a journal at times. A journal ensures we are not only consistent, but on one accord with our prayers.

              After decades of pervasive influence over government policy, economists have done much to create the world in which we live. And yet, how well do they actually understand human behaviour? As the Western world turns against 'experts', has their time come to an end?

              This volume combines insights from secular sexuality education, trauma studies, and embodiment to explore effective strategies for teaching sexuality and religion in colleges, universities, and seminaries. Contributors to this volume address a variety of sexuality-related issues ...including reproductive rights, military prostitution, gender, fidelity, queerness, sexual trauma, and veiling from the perspective of multiple religious faiths. Christian, Jewish, and Muslim scholars present pedagogy and classroom strategies appropriate for secular and religious institutional contexts. By foregrounding a combination of 'perspective transformation' and 'embodied learning' as a means of increasing students' appreciation for the varied social, psychological, theological and cultural contexts in which attitudes to sexuality develop, the volume posits sexuality as a critical element of teaching about religion in higher education. This book will be of great interest to graduate and postgraduate students, researchers, academics, and libraries in the fields of Religious Studies, Religious Education, Gender & Sexuality, Religion & Education and Sociology of Religion.
