Quoting Quiverfull: Who Decides the Definition of “Apostate”?

It might not be a literal sin, but it's a crime against fashion

by Kevin Swanson of Generations With Vision - Homeschool Apostates and Kathryn Joyce's Sins And, yes, yes.

by Jay Younts of Shepherd Press - Avoiding Disappoint Christmas morningNot getting the gift that is wanted can happen for several reasons. The budget dictates trips to Walmart instead of the mall.

I cared about ideas more than I cared about people; and I realized I was heading towards the same miserable end as my hero, … [Read more...]

by Tim Price of Chalcedon Presbyterian Church posted at Ladies Against Feminism - The Door of Darkness When boys enter into puberty, they discover a door within themselves that has a sign saying, “DO NOT ENTER!” It is the door of sexual exploration and it has been presented to them by their new-found hormones.
