this article (obligatory warning that it is basically just Transphobia and also Homophobia) is a pretty good litmus test of how immersed you were in conservative evangelicalism.
this is…a really stunning portrait, like a point by point outline, of the assumptions conservative American Christians navigate the world with. I used to see a lot of this site (shudders) in my homeschool group. However, I was looking back at it and realized that to outsiders, the content of this article seems like a completely batshit strand of total non sequiturs

saving yourself for marriage isn't a "woman" thing. it's a "every professing christian" thing. christian men, you're not off the hook on this one.

He who comes from above is above all; he who is of the earth is earthly and speaks of the earth. He who comes from heaven is above all.

1 Peter 1:3-5 NLT
3 All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. It is by his great mercy that we have been born again, because God raised Jesus Christ from the dead. Now we live with great expectation, 4 and we have a priceless inheritance—an inheritance that is kept in heaven for you, pure and undefiled, beyond the reach of change and decay. 5 And through your faith, God is protecting you by his power until you receive this salvation, which is ready to be revealed on the last day for all to see.

You’re worshiping a book of fairytales and the characters therein.
It the bible was actually true, you wouldn’t need “faith.”

so, running with the theme here where the monster's religion seems to be an offshoot of irl Catholicism, i'd like to kindly warn you all not to think about this:
don't think about noelle, stumbling into church half dazed and falling to her knees at the altar, confused and terrified.
don't think about her in tears and her hand nearly immobile from phantom pain from the spiky ring from her dream.
don't think about her mumbling to herself "thou shalt not kill" over and over while she tries to convince herself she isn't damned.
don't think about her crying out for any help or guidance, and certainly not for forgiveness. don't think about her frantically trying to repent for what was "just a dream, right?"
don't think about her pleading for someone to save her, her friend Kris, or her father.
don't think about her praying for protection for herself, susie, and her sister.
don't think about her praying for leniency from her mother.
don't think about her screaming in sorrow as she prays for berdly to wake up.
and certainly don't think about kris' possessed body watching her while wearing noelle's watch.

“My dear children, I write this to you so that you will not sin. But if anybody does din, we have an advocate with the Father-- Jesus Christ, the Righteous One. He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours, but also for the sins of the whole world.”
-- 1 John 2: 1-2 NIV

People try to persuade us that the objections against Christianity spring from doubt. That is a complete misunderstanding. The objections against Christianity spring from insubordination, the dislike of obedience, rebellion against all authority. As a result, people have hitherto been beating the air in their struggle against objections, because they have fought intellectually with doubt instead of fighting morally with rebellion.
Søren Kierkegaard in his journal (1847)

Matthew 5:13-14 NLT
13 “You are the salt of the earth. But what good is salt if it has lost its flavor? Can you make it salty again? It will be thrown out and trampled underfoot as worthless.14 “You are the light of the world—like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden. 15 No one lights a lamp and then puts it under a basket. Instead, a lamp is placed on a stand, where it gives light to everyone in the house. 16 In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father.
