What Ken Ham Thinks The Atheist Agenda Is

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from The Life and Times of Bruce GerencserEditor's note: Since we sometimes talk about Quiverfull Homeschooling and Ken Ham is followed and praised by many in the homeschooling communities we need to look at his science-denying/Christian persecution beliefs.

Please keep this in mind while reading his rebuttal of Ham. If you … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: So Boys are Courageous and Girls Princess-y?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Raising Songs - Raising Courageous WarriorsEditor's note: Nancy and her Bible word interpretations that just happen to line up with whatever bad idea she's foisting onto the Quiverfull folk. This time it happens to be that boys are warriors and girls are princesses. Got news for her, there are many more young women these days that would rather be a dragon, or their own hero, or mighty warriors, than there are princess types. She says that girls should be 'strong' too, but know that her idea of strength in women is raising their huge broods and making sure dinner is on the table perfectly every single night.
