How Did Carol Ann Get to Louisiana? – Is Justice Delayed Justice At All For Carol Ann Cole?

by Suzanne TitkemeyerWhen we left off last week we'd looked at the places that Carol Ann either sent mail from or that people had seen her at, ruling out a few places that she might have been for lack of any solid evidence.Someone put together something that I did not understand the significance of in my original research, that the Brownwood Reception Center where Carol Ann wrote her Michigan family from is also called the Ron Jackson State Juvenile Correction Facility.

Good Christian Sex by Bromleigh McCleneghan

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Samanthapfield.comWhen I first crack open the spine of a book like Good Christian Sex, the first place I turn to is the bibliography. When I got this book about a month ago I glanced over the materials she referenced, and at first was a little wary. There were a lot of pop culture references, a blog post I’ve occasionally been frustrated with, a smattering of male theologians, and a feminist author who makes a case for abstinence that I thoroughly disagree with. Looking over the table of contents made me feel a touch cautious, as well: there’s a chapter on vulnerability and another on fidelity, two concepts I’ve seen go completely sideways in C … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Atheists Are Just People Who Hate How God is Running Things?

by Lori Alexander from Always Learning - Divorced Parents Raise Less Religious Children?Editor's note: Ignoring the fact that many divorced women, men and children fall away from religious communities because the members of those communities behave like judgmental unloving jerks to them and concentrating on the most mind-blowing part of Lori's daily drivel. Atheist are people who are mad at God?!?! How can you be mad at someone you don't believe exists? This is illustrative of the fact that those still in the high pressure faith communities have zero understanding of anyone outside their koolaid zone echo chambers and make things up with no basis in reality. … [Read more...]
