Quoting Quiverfull: Misunderstanding ‘Patriarchy’?

quotingquiverfull

by Gabriel Hudelson of Thine is The Kingdom - Godzilla on PatriarchyEditor's note: This author is speaking on the HSLDA article published in August titled 'A Line in the Sand' and refuting some of it line by line. HSLDA wrote distancing itself from Doug Phillips, Bill Gothard and their definition of Patriarchy in an attempt to pretend to be different than Gothard and Phillips among other things. Is HSLDA being disingenuous or are they making real theological changes in how they view gender roles and submission of women? … [Read more...]

by Suzanne Titkemeyer cross posted from her blog What Would Roger Sterling Do? originally published December 17, 2014 I was going to talk about my scintillating and thrilling day yesterday gravitating between lying on the sofa, the kitchen to shove batches of Christmas cookies in and out of the oven for Jim's office party, loading unloading folding ironing laundry between more bouts laying down on the sofa because of the flu but then I ran into a posting on Facebook that make me take a look at something I'd been heavily involved with over at the Creek Church - Gwen Shamblin and her Weigh Down Workshop. It must have been around 1997 or so when one of the older ladies at Creek Church started … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Spanking to Bring ‘Peace’ and ‘Stability’ Into the Home?

quotingquiverfull

by Michael Pearl of No Greater Joy - Spank and Save a Child Editor's note: This entire piece is part disgusting and part hysterical. Mr. Pearl is ranting against all the naysayers who think spanking is abusive towards children, even as there are studies which prove it is. He's also upset that his words are being taken out of context for quotes. Bonus points in the piece for his reference to uneducated 'hillbilly' women.  … [Read more...]

Screencap from Homeschoolers Anonymous

by R.L. Stollar Community Coordinator of Homeschoolers Anonymous. Article cross posted from Homeschoolers Anonymous James and Lisa Pennington responded today to their daughter Alecia’s allegations of identification abuse.

Quoting Quiverfull: Social Media & Parenting – Should Parents Post Everything About Children Online?

quotingquiverfull

by Tonya Dixon from her blog Never Too Many Flowers - Facebook's Wake Up Call to the Hearts of All ChristiansEditor's note: Reading through this quiverfull adoption blog I was struck by the fact that Ms. Dixon has posted many photos of her children in less than perfect circumstances, such as the recent surgery of one of her adopted children. Photos from the recovery room, of the incisions and scars, very detailed photos that it seems very wrong to post. My question based upon her child photos and her posting right before about Facebook, Christians and Social Media is where is the line? Is it alright to post sensitive photos of your three year old who is not old enough to give consent and … [Read more...]

A typical tale being repeated all over the homeschooling world, parents not realizing that there were things about their lifestyle that were harming their child, child leaving and parents expressing shock and surprise, swearing they thought everything was going all swimmingly right up until the adult child leaves. … [Read more...]
