Quoting Quiverfull: Christians Should Fight ‘Religious Wars’?

coward

Franklin Graham at Billy Graham Evangelical Association - Duck Dynasty and the Ducking Church I appreciate the Robertson family’s strong commitment to biblical principles and their refusal to back down under intense media pressure over Phil Robertson’s comments in a recent interview. As the Robertson controversy winds down—at least for now—I have been amazed at how many churches have apparently “ducked” out on the issue (sin). Some were even quick to condemn Phil Robertson. … [Read more...]

False Dichotomies: “Homeschooled Girls vs. Feminists”

homeschooledgirls

by Samantha Fields cross posted from her blog Defeating the Dragons So, Robert Knight, an extremely conservative writer for Townhall and whose articles occasionally appear in publications like the Washington Times, wrote an article last Tuesday called “Homeschooled Girls vs. Feminists.” Since the article spends most of its time talking about grown women, I have to admit to some mild annoyance to the persistent infantilization of women in conservative circles. College-aged females are women, thank you. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: You Can’t Take Your Paycheck to Bed?

leanonhusband

by Suzanne Venker posted at Ladies Against Feminism and Fox News - Why women still need husbands Financial independence is a great thing, but you can’t take your paycheck to bed with you. And there’s nothing empowering about being beholden to an employer when what you really want is to have a baby. That’s dependency of a different sort.This is the conclusion to which most women have come. Research shows that what women want more than anything else is not to work full-time and year-round but to live balanced lives. … [Read more...]

I was working on getting editing jobs, but they were few and far between, and my health just doesn’t allow for outside-the-house employment. I also started writing here because I wanted to finally say out loud a lot of the things that had been slowly germinating over the past four or five years but had never been in a place where I felt capable of expressing them. … [Read more...]

Happy New Year! – Open Thread

happynewyear

by Suzanne Calulu cross posted from her blog True Love Doesn't RapeFor the last few weeks I've been waiting with baited breath for CBN's Pat Robertson to make his yearly announcement claiming that God told him what to expect in the coming year. Pat's obviously falling down on the job since he's been largely silent on 2014. Or perhaps his handlers are realizing how insane he's started to sound in the last few years.Let us revisit what he said in December 2012 in regards to 2013's happenings.... … [Read more...]
