Raised by Strangers

VNM: Dealing With The Leagcy Of Agent Orange In Vietnam

by Kristen Rosser cross posted from her blog Wordgazer's WordsIt's a mantra that I've heard repeated many times, especially in Christian circles.  "A good mother stays home full-time.  Don't let your children be raised by strangers!" "Raised by strangers."  What mom would want that for her kids?  So I believed, as a young Christian married woman, that of course God would provide a way for me to not work outside the home.  After all, staying home with my kids full-time was what I wanted as a young mother, right?  I mean, if I were really following God's will for my life, this was what I should want.  And this was obviously what was best both for me and for my children, right?  I mean, if … [Read more...]

Duggar Rumors: Jill and Jessa Feud Escalating?

TLC's 'Cake Boss' family and the 'Honey Boo Boo' family were on 'Family Feud' If this keeps up will we see the Seewald versus the Dillard families on the show?

More on the falling out between Jessa Seewald and Jill Dillard. Not sure how true this is either considering many of the stories appearing in the media about the Duggar family lately haven't been truthful. Example: All that talk about Jim Bob wanting Jana to be courted by Tim Tebow? His rep, Jana and Amy Duggar say it's a ridiculous tabloid fiction. Too bad, because it would have been an escape for Jana from the Duggar fold instead of endless 'buddies' and piles of laundry and cooking. … [Read more...]

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Life and Times of Bruce Gerencser(Editor's note: Welcome back to the world of blogging. Bruce, you've been sorely missed.)Under attack over their handling of sexual abuse and rape complaints, fundamentalist Christian university, Bob Jones University, hired GRACE (Godly Response for Abuse in the Christian Environment), to do an investigation.  Towards the end of the investigation, Bob Jones ended its contractual arrangement with GRACE and refused to allow any report to be issued. The outrage over this was such that Bob Jones was forced to re-contract with GRACE and the report has now been released. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Women Report More False Than True Rape Incidents?

Some of the same infuriating rape culture thinking that Matt Walsh promotes..

by Matt Walsh at The Matt Walsh Blog - False Rape Accusations Are Just as Evil as Rape ItselfWhile Matt is not addressing the recently revealed allegations that Bob Jones University officials covered up sexual abuse cases on campus, he is sounding off on the recent story in Rolling Stone magazine about rape on the campus of the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, Virginia. After Rolling Stone published their story of ignored rape taking place in a fraternity it came out that the accuser was lying. He seizes upon this one story to make his assertions that rape is mostly made up instead of examining the evidence that Bob Jones and other Christian schools have lied and covered up … [Read more...]

News: Pastor Steven Anderson Lied to a Bunch of Rabbis…

...and tricked several of them into being filmed for his anti-Semitic film. One of them is planning on suing. Lying is bad enough, tricking a Holocaust survivor into appearing in an anti-Semitic film is a whole different ticket to one of the circles of hell by Anderson's own belief system. He better start praying his God isn't real! Especially since his beloved Jesus was a Jew.From Raw Story - Anti-gay Arizona pastor tricks Holocaust survivor into appearing in his anti-Semitic film … [Read more...]

by Ken Alexander (taking over his wife Lori's blog) from Always Learning - Wimpy Husbands With Rebellious WivesThis poor, poor male just does not understand why a wife with a zillion children to homeschool might not be able to fulfill all of her responsibilities in a timely fashion and is labeling it 'rebellion'? Reads like male Christian woman-bashing at it's finest. … [Read more...]

“Real Marriage” Review: 177-206 “Can We___?”

50s-in-love-couple

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating The Dragons I knew before I sat down to read today’s chapter that it had been the one that people found controversial, but I wasn’t familiar with why it had upset some—and I have to admit that even after reading it I still wasn’t sure why it had apparently caused a hubbub. To me, it seemed as though Mark was toeing the conservative evangelical line pretty well. I mean, he was clearly “being Mark,” but he didn’t say anything that I wouldn’t have expected from a lot of other evangelical leaders. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 1 – Adapt To Your Man Or Else?

When you force dye roses to make them certain colors it shortens the life span of the rose considerably. I would think doing the same with humans might have the same effect, or at the very least lead to a life filled with frustration.

by Debi Pearl in No Greater Joy Magazine - Multi-Colored GirlIt's all about those fake stereotypes Debi promotes in her books, Visionary, Priestly, etc, etc, etc,.... you get the point. She attaches 'colors' to each role and stereotype too. … [Read more...]
