Back to Stage One Healing: More on Safety and Stabilization

by Cindy Kunsman cross posted from her blog from Under Much GraceAll images by Cindy Kunsman and from Under Much Grace used with permission. Article 3 pages total.It's been quite a month, and life is settling back into something like normal. Redeeming Dinah, the blog exploring the Duggar Phenomenon as a function of the family agenda promoted among many Independent Fundamental Baptists is up and running. It's been a month since the panel where survivors of the system talked about their experiences. Afterwards, I returned home from Dallas to be met with a couple of deaths of loved ones, some injuries, and the sadness that goes along with them. The dog days of summer do not make … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Do These Biblical Marriage Rules Magically Apply to Both Sexes?

by Larry Solomon from Biblical Gender Roles - The 12 Required Attributes of Marital LoveEditor's note: Not linking directly to Larry since he's clearly getting off on the idea of extra hit numbers. This comes from a long post about what married people need to feel for each other. He's using gender neutrality in the list but how many of you think that in Larry's mind having a penis exempts you from the entire list? This is not a bad list, it's just very unlikely he means for men to behave this way towards their wives. … [Read more...]

Shackled Girl: Part 12 – New Charge Filed

by PropinquaEditor’s note: Like an algae bloom, the case of Timothy and Esten Ciboro keeps growing and changing. It seems odd that apparently no psychological evaluation has been ordered for either defendant. Both men seem resolved to discredit their own attorneys, who might want to stock up on commercial-grade algicide—or at least keep a bottle of Mylanta handy. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Bibles, Bibles, Everywhere?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - All Ears and EyesEditor's note: So much so wrong with these three paragraphs I barely know where to start. Nancy starts out in an unquoted bit trying to shame people that don't read their Bible constantly before moving to claim this is how you teach your children and moving on to say daily Bible reading is how someone cured their cancer. That's a lot of word salad for one plate and an series of ideas leaping around like a frog on meth. … [Read more...]

Examining ATI Wisdom Booklets: Booklet 2: Science-ish – Disciplines of Science

by Mel cross posted from her blog When Cows and Kids CollideThis piece is five pages total.Welcome back to the ATI Wisdom Booklets Debunking series!The ATI booklets are poorly organized.  In the second Wisdom Booklet, there is an overview of the scope of the major topics in science in the middle of a section on logic or history.  The overview contains huge omissions and falsehoods about science, so I felt compelled to point out the errors within this section since the booklet was missing an actual science section. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: God Teaches Way Better Than Public School?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Getting Ready for the School Year?Editor's note: Since when has public school or even private schools for that matter taught in a 'half-hearted' way? Not when there are standardized tests at the state level to be passed. … [Read more...]

Only Carnal Christians Cancel Church?

by Cindy Foster cross posted from her blog Finding FundamentalPaul and I wake up early enough most Sunday mornings, to make a routine Starbucks run for an hour or so before church--our way to ease into the events of the day.Once scoring our favorite drinks, we nestle into our pre-selected, cushiony chairs, sign in to our Macs, read a bit, then share articles and statuses of interest with each other.  Such is our early Sunday routine. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Women Must Submit Because Satan?

by Lori Alexander from Always Learning - Were the Women of Old Submissive?Editor's note: So now it's not just evil feminism to blame, it's women and Satan? The rest women struggle with being cheerfully submissive is not because of sin, it's because it's not at all how we were designed to behave. It's faking it, lying on a grand scale. How is living a lie a righteous Godly thing? … [Read more...]

Questioning The Pearls – Sexy Times With Baby in Bed?

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...]

by Zsuzsanna Anderson from Are They All Yours?!?? - Homeschool Tips: Young KidsEditor's note: While learning to sit still and concentrate is difficult for many young children is having the child do housework instead of sitting down to teach them to read really the best educational choice? Any teachers of first grade or kindergarten out there that can address the issues of not doing much schooling with the younger children? … [Read more...]
