Quoting Quiverfull: Part 1 – Beat That Foolish Child!

by Debi Pearl from No Greater Joy - Unbinding FoolishnessEditor's note: Seriously she is advocating beating a child for immaturity! What is wrong with sometimes being silly or even childlike. Children tend to be.... CHILDLIKE!... Why on earth would anyone think that punishing a child for being a good is a good idea? Children do eventually outgrow things like being silly without anyone having to use corporal punishment to speed their maturity along. It's cruel to beat a child for being a child. … [Read more...]

Donald Trump, The ‘Christian’

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Life and Times of Bruce GerencserThe majority of voting Evangelicals plan to cast their vote for Donald Trump come November. Their support of Trump is proof positive that Evangelicals have sold their souls to the Devil. James Dobson, arguably one of the patriarchs of Evangelicalism’s war against American culture, with a straight face, says that Donald Trump is a “baby” Christian. If Trump is a Christian, well Praise Jesus, Hallelujah, everyone, including atheists such as myself should have no problem making it to God’s Trump Hotel in the Sky®. … [Read more...]

Intrinsically Valuable

by Suzanne Titkemeyer cross posted from her blog Every Breaking WaveOne of my favorite possessions is a photo of my grandmother from back in the late 1920s. I'm not sure it's pre or post Black Tuesday, Oct. 29, 1929 but I think it's likely pre. I've heard horror stories from that grandmother my whole life about two or three of her brothers jumping out of windows after losing fortunes in the marketin. I know her family was wealthy right up until Black Tuesday. The only one to come out financially unscathed was my great grandmother, but only because she owned many rental properties and farms. She didn't trust in stocks. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: The Only Allowable Birth Control in Quiverfull?

by Zsuzsanna Anderson from Are They All Yours? - Q & A: Young Mom of Many Kids Struggling to do it AllEditor's note: Zsuzsanna acknowledges that back to back pregnancies puts a significant stress on your body and family but cannot even possibly consider that perhaps birth control might be the answer to ending back to back pregnancies.

Quoting Quiverfull: Using First Names Disrespectful?

by Zsuzsanna Anderson from Are They All Yours? - Words Are PowerfulEditor's note: While I will agree it's a good idea to behave and speak respectfully to others I don't think you are really being disrespectful to your pastor if you know him very well and call him by his first name instead of adding the sobriquet of 'Pastor' or 'Reverend' or 'Father' in front of it. It all depends on the closeness of the relationship. It's not like like Steven Anderson has a legal titled name: for example Queen Elizabeth of England is always referred to as HRH or Ma'am when people must address the monarch. Zsu makes it sound like her husband has no real friends if they are that suspicious of someone being … [Read more...]
