Breaking Down "Modest is Hottest" with Talk Purity to Me

from Divinely Modern | Published 6/26/2021

Christian music artist, Matthew West, released his song and music video, Modest is Hottest, on Father's Day this year. The lyrics were intended to jokingly teach young girls how to properly dress as Christian females, but the song immediately received criticism online. In this episode, I talk with Blair from Talk Purity to Me, an online platform dedicated to "unlearning the shame of purity culture." We recap the events of the past week and discuss why the satirical song is not funny and, instead, harmful.Instagram and TikTok: @[email protected]

|| A podcast on Christian deconstruction, liberal theology, spiritual freedom, and faith in the modern world. || Can we rebuild our faith after being hurt by the church? Can we reclaim the Christian faith as one that affirms women, science, mental health, LGBTQ+, body positivity, justice, and doubt? I say, yes. My guests and I offer support and conversations for reconstructing the faith while filtering out toxic theology.
