More About Those Troubled Teen Homes: Is Justice Delayed Justice At All For Carol Ann Cole?

by Suzanne TitkemeyerLast week we looked at the possibility that Lester Roloff and his Roloff Homes might have been connected to one of the troubled teen facilities where Carol Ann Cole was likely at. Today we're going to finish up with the connection between Roloff and the Texas Youth Commission.But first let me say this: People have emailed me, or messaged me or a few have commented various places that have shared what I've written about the murder of Carol Ann trying to debunk a lot of what I'd written. Here's the thing, the things I've written come directly from easily available documents anyone with Google can find, … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Beat All That Foolishness Out?

by Debi Pearl from No Greater Joy - Unbinding FoolishnessEditor's note: This bit has it all, beating children if they act in ways you consider foolish, fat shaming, and hurting your child on purpose to make them stop 'showing off'. In other words any time your child acts age-appropriately normal or human you should be them while saying 'I will show you what hurt feels like.' Does that not just reek with the love and mercy of Christ? … [Read more...]

When Controlling Behavior Backfires

by Living Liminal cross posted from her blog Living LiminalOne of the first bloggers I started to follow after experiencing bullying and abuse in the institutional church was Julie Anne. She now writes a blog called Spiritual Sounding Board, but when she first started blogging, she could be be found here.She wrote this about being sued by her ex-pastor: "Days after the commencement of this blog, I received a legal summons suing me and three others for defamation to the tune of $500,000. The story of spiritual abuse needs to be told. People are being hurt emotionally and spiritually by pastors who use bully tactics and we need a place to learn, to talk freely, and to heal. I will not … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Your Uterus Holds All Your Emotions?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - The Compassionate WombEditor's note: This one has me jaw-dropped this morning. Seriously? The womb is the seat of our emotions? I am guessing that this is why Nancy Campbell does not want women to ever have or express any negative thoughts or emotions. It might poison the womb, but only if this unscientific notion was true. The last time I checked the only thing your uterus holds is either your monthly uterine lining or a baby. No room for emotions. … [Read more...]

It’s Not That Complicated: Part 4 Chapter 10

by Mel cross posted from her blog When Cows and Kids CollideQuoted text from the book is in blue. So far, the Botkin Sisters have focused on how to bother your friends show any interest in a romantic relationship. Next, the girls explain how to become a completely social isolated loser. Don't believe me? Wait until you see the advice. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Feminists Have Miserable Marriages?

by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife - Feminist Sisters Who Mock and Attack MeEditor's note: Lori does not get that it's not her that people are attacking, it's not her personally, it's her horrible toxic shaming and blaming theology that is so incredible awful! A personal attack would be saying she's ugly, or she's unforgiving, or mean-spirited, not that what she believes is wrong. You can hate the belief and still not disparage the other person. I do hate her assumptions about all other women outside of her high demand group. No Lori, you are wrong about feminists having more miserable marriages. No matter how hard women in the CPM try to convince outsiders how glorious their … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Don’t Coddle Boys?

by Michelle Lesley from Give Me Church Ladies, Or I Die - How Can Christian Moms Raise Godly Men?Editor's note: Surprise, surprise, this Calvinist female cultural enforcer also believes in the same thing as Lori Alexander and Debi Pearl, beating children to make them behave. Children, both boys and girls, need the presence of a committed father figure in their lives, not just when they are hurt or have misbehaved, but all the time. If he's only part of the child's life to punish or make him/her 'walk it off' it's not exactly going lead to a close or loving relationship. … [Read more...]

Questioning the Pearls: Sissy Sensitive Son?

For well over a year we’ve been running a second Answering ‘Preparing To Be A Help Meet’ on Sundays, filled with questions by young ladies trying to get ready for marriage. Since we’ve run through many of the questions on their site it’s time to shift Sundays to something else, like perhaps examining the cornucopia of probably fake emails and questions that Michael and Debi Pearl of No Greater Joy post on their website and the possibly poisonous answers they give. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Suffering Women Who Teach Are Deceived?

by Michelle Lesley from Give Me Church Ladies, Or I Die - Band-Aids vs. Chemotherapy: Why Suffering Women are Drawn to False Doctrine and 7 Things We Can do to HelpEditor's note: This blogger is a new one for us, but she follows some rather toxic and insane teachers like Tim Chailles and Todd Friel. Pretty outrageous, even for a blogging female cultural enforcer. First call most other female cultural enforcers 'false teachers', then make claims about things that happened to them, throw in some personal observations that are unsupported by any empirical evidence or surveys, then jump straight to a ridiculous conclusions about how we're supposed to suffer for the good of our souls. … [Read more...]
