Linda Kay Klein, renowned Speaker and Author of the best selling “Pure: Inside the Evangelical Movement that Shamed a Generation of Young Women and How I Broke Free”, makes a profound premier in the Pews.
The episode commences with Linda conveying: how she has never felt so welcome on a podcast, life in New York City during COVID, being a Midwesterner at heart, about her husband Jimmy Briggs, how they manage stress now, being a “bonus mom”, her experience in and escape from Evangelical Christianity, what drew her into the religion as a 13 year old, the long term effect on her sexuality, the “True Love Waits” movement and its emphasis on “being sexless”. Then the two Kleins discuss: courting for marriage, “Promise Keepers”, rampant STD’s in the Purity Movement, the process she went through to sexual healing, the prominence of pregnancy tests in attempts for peace-of-mind for some victims, how secular society responded to her story, VP Mike Pence, breaking the brokenness inside, the worldwide impact of her book, her Break Free Together Foundation, the power of story exchange, plus so much more! It ain’t going to be boring.
