Quoting

by the ladies at Ladies Against Feminism commenting upon a piece by Justin McBrayer at the New York Times - One Reason Our Children Don't Think There Are Moral FactsEditor's note - LAF is taking the original author to task for not saying that scripture is the final truth on everything.

by Lana Hope cross posted from her blog Wide Open Ground originally posted June 2013Daily I tremble in memory of friends left behind. As a Daughter of Patriarchy and fundamentalism, I am left to remember all the faces of those who didn’t make it out. I suffer from survivors guilt.  I don’t suffer from the spiritual abuse so much.
