“Bold, biblical singles” are being called upon to join the latest Christian-based online dating platform, Dominion Dating.
As the brand suggests, Dominion Dating caters to religious singles who seek to fulfill marriage traditions as defined by the Old Testament.
Part of the membership agreement entails a pledge to commit to “male headship” of the family, church and government, “believing that God has endowed men with real, limited authority to govern well for the good of mankind,” its website reads, as well as a vow for women to assume their “dominion in the home as homemaker and helpmate, in glad submission to a husband.”
They also seek to “reject ‘careerism’ as normative for women,” putting the kibosh on potentially feminist members, and require that would-be husbands and wives come with the intention of “being fruitful and multiplying,” as decreed in Genesis 1:28.
Its social media claims to boast “1,000+” users on Dominion Dating since they launched in December of last year.
“Sexual purity” is also a requisite for the relationship matching service, which means “casual dating” — as well as “fornication, watching pornography, dressing sensually or immodestly, and entertaining lustful thoughts” — are all forbidden among singles.
Currently, the site is urging visitors to “back this project” with donations of $15 to $500, offering various membership packages, including the top-tier “Dominion” and “Straight Fire” Levels for subscriptions of 10 and 50 months, respectively.
The project was founded by Brandon Durham, a Texas-based pastor ordained by the Southern Baptist Convention, who touts no specific church congregation and appears to have focused his ministry on social media. Durham was recently featured on the fringe Hard Men Podcast, a show dedicated to “recovering biblical masculinity in a world of softness.”
Dominion Dating’s launch has not been without controversy after fewer than five months of operation, the blog Friendly Atheist first reported. Recently, Twitter user @sinner_sainted pointed to a promotional video for the dating service, one that promises to “drain the soy boy [and] feminist swamp,” yet also appears to feature a man in apparent “black face.”
Their administrators responded to the claim on social media. “We’d like to issue an apology…” @DominionDating tweeted on Friday, followed by a series of posts including a correction that the “creepy clown” is “actually a black man in ‘whiteface.’ ”
According to their interpretation, the problematic figure “represents modern evangelical feminist subversion,” concluding that “feminism is a lie.”
“To black people everywhere, we apologize for all the racists out there who aren’t more accepting of blk people in film,” they added. “Clearly racism is still a big problem among the CRT” — referring to critical race theory — “crowd. Lord, help us!”
