by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Life and Times of Bruce Gerencser(Editor's note: Sharing this because it dovetails so nicely with today's Quoting Quiverfull of Bill Gothard adding 'sin' to eyes and eyelids.

Quoting Quiverfull: Seduced Using Eyes?

From Bill Gothard's ATI Wisdom booklet Medical Paralyzed Eyelids as quoted by MelEditor's note: After posting and reading through this particular wisdom booklet and it's claims that eyes and eyelids can be used to seduce I ran into the photo above on Facebook and just laughed. It's an old photo, likely from the late 1940s or 50s and illustrates the kind of thought Bill Gothard and pals still hold about seduction. Now I know the woman in the image is not winking but it is the same type of ridiculous thoughts that Gothard pushes. From that particular wisdom booklet: … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Most Disabled People Sexually Abused?

by Steven Anderson of Faithful Word Baptist Church - People Getting Saved Because of the Reprobate DoctrineEditor's note: Wow, just so much so wrong about this posting of Anderson's. No, most disabled people haven't been molested. No, most people do not reject the Gospel when out 'soul-winning' because of thinking even child molesters are in heaven. People reject door to door preaching because it's filled with hate, annoying when you're at home relaxing and because of the hateful ways of many Christians. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Homeschooling is The Real World?

by Chris Weller from Business Insider - Why Homeschool is the Smartest Way to Teach Kids in the 21st Century as quoted by Ladies Against FeminismEditor's note: While this article is written by someone with no discernible religion ties for a secular publication the author only looks at the sanitized versions of homeschooling promoted by homeschooling advocates themselves. The danger of only publishing the positives, and there are some positive advantages for some children, is that he is ignoring the fact that homeschooling functions with not much in the way of official oversight. Which means those children who are learning from educational sources like Bill Gothard's ATI Wisdom books or … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Divorce Leads to Boastful Spending?

by Steven Anderson of Faithful Word Baptist Church - If the Shoe FitsEditor's note: Strangest reasoning yet over why you should not either divorce or buy expensive new shoes for your children. He does not take into account that if the child is involved in athletics there might actually be a reason to buy that shoe and sports shoes aren't the cheapest. In all the divorced families I've known I don't think I've ever seen a scenario where the single mother is swimming in money enough to blow it on huge shopping sprees for Air Jordans. Fantasyland. Another reason to throw hate at people who divorce. … [Read more...]

In the discussion of building safety in stabilization in recovery from post traumatic stress, we've recently considered the role of acceptance and expectation in that process.
