CTBHHM: Adam Knew (But It’s Eve’s Fault)

apple

Created To Be His Help Meet, pp. 110-111 Debi has previously said that God creates men with armor and women without, so that mean can use their reason to stand against Satan's temptations and make sound decisions while women use their feelings to tenderly care for their children and keep the home. Women, Debi says, are to stand behind the armor of their men, and thus be protected. The reason Eve at the apple, Debi says, is that she stepped out from Adam's armor and was thus vulnerable. Some … [Read more...]

HSLDA as a Supervillain

supervillain

I recently received an email from the Home School Legal Defense Association (HSLDA) with the headline "Single Mom Shields Son from Bullies, Faces Charges." Curious, I looked at the summary the email provided: New Jersey: Charges Dropped, Case Dismissed After HSLDA Intervenes Home School Legal Defense Association worked closely with a local attorney to prove that charges of educational neglect against a single mom were false. Still curious, I clicked the link to the full article. Single mom … [Read more...]

A Response to a Failed Courtship—A Humorous Poem

courtship

In google searching for something totally unrelated, I came upon a humorous poem about a failed courtship. As someone raised in this mentality, I found it familiar---and quite funny---and thought I'd share. It's written like a letter from a girl's prospective suitor to her father, sent after learning (from the father, of course) that the girl had rejected his suit. And weirdly, this poem was posted approvingly on the website of Scott Brown, Vision Forum ally and courtship promoter … [Read more...]

Things Women Hear in the Church

church

I ran across two different articles today, each of which would have probably seemed only more appalling to me if they weren't simply parroting things I heard growing up as a conservative evangelical. The first was called True Love Doesn't Wait, written by a married father of six. The basic premise? Church singles need to stop waiting for true love and just get married already. The author responds to a blog post made popular in the fury of Christian blogging on purity that followed a post on … [Read more...]

Where We Are on HSLDA, Homeschooling, and Child Abuse

coming together

This has been a crazy couple of weeks, to be honest. I never expected that HSLDA would respond to my posts or that people would come out of the woodwork angry about the blind eye HSLDA has turned toward the issue of child abuse in homeschooling families. Some people have even rephrased this whole thing as "Libby Anne vs. HSLDA." I've put together a page bringing together everything I've written on homechooling, child abuse, and HSLDA recently---feel free to take a look. So where are we, … [Read more...]

Whence Opposition to Birth Control? An Illustration.

flowers

I've written before suggesting that if pro-lifers are consistent, they should be in favor of birth control. And indeed, there are some who are. But there seem to be more who aren't, and that is only more true when it comes to Catholics. I recently came upon an illustration that explains how Catholic pro-lifers can be anti-birth control, and anti-abortion at the same time. Click the illustration to view it larger. For those who can't view the image, let me offer a brief description. On the … [Read more...]

Homeschooling To Avoid the Truancy Officer

truant boy

There is a homeschool truancy problem. To be more specific, there is currently a problem with parents of chronically truant children claiming that they homeschool in order to get around truancy laws and avoid prosecution, and then not actually homeschooling. I'm not talking about people who make the choice to homeschool their children for religious or educational or social reasons and then set about making an effort to give them a good education---I'm talking about parents who deliberatly make … [Read more...]
