Appreciation Rant

lovesgod

by Kaleesh Williams cross posted from her blog The Lost (And Found) Mind of Kaleesha WilliamsThe full quote is, "The woman who serves unnoticed and un-thanked is a woman who loves God more than she desires the praise of others. She is confident that all her unnoticed deeds on earth are noticed in Heaven. She is satisfied knowing she has pleased her Lord."A believing friend sent me this meme, expressing her frustration with this aspect of religion. It rather burns me, too. Just yesterday I was doing something benign for Denny and he thanked me, quite sincerely. Then he paused thoughtfully and, with much emotion, expressed how sad it made him to think of all the years I and the … [Read more...]

That First Kiss at Jessa Dugger & Ben Seewald’s Wedding?

jessaben

ETA: Looks like the blog that Radar Online and others took all these 'quotes' from, including quotes from anonymous comments, might be a parody blog. It's all from My Life As A Stay At Home Wife and Mom. So even as some of the media outlets are promoting this as if it were a legitimate story it sounds like there is a strong possibility it was an invented tale. Read with a giant boulder of salt. That skipped kiss is driving some rather strange rumors in the gossip world. All of the rumors are coming from guests of the Duggars at the wedding.The first one is that the Duggar parents didn't know about Jessa and Ben skipping the kiss at the end of the wedding and it made for a very … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 1 – Death With Dignity & Ebola Word Salad

maynard

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Choose LifeNancy is verbose and ranty in this post and one after it answering those that didn't agree with her in the comments. Interesting in that until the last few weeks she's not responded to her detractors. Is it possible that until recently no one would stand up to her? … [Read more...]

cameronduggar

from People Magazine - Kirk Cameron on the Duggar Wedding: I Want a Guy Who Respects My Daughters Like ThatHe must have a new project coming out to hitch himself to the Duggar Seewald nuptials like this. Makes me sad for the bride and groom that this wedding is being used by their family to increase television ratings without anyone else shamefully glomming on to it for the publicity. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: “Gynecist” is a Real Word?

uterus

Ladies Against Feminism still haven't learned their lesson about doing due diligence of the works that they publish as fact. Yesterday they published a piece from American Thinker called Wendy Davis: Dreams from my Uterus that uses the made up word 'Gynecist' as some sort of new word to describe those they called 'feminists' but you or I might say were women that wanted to have the right to make decisions about their reproductive organs. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Feminism is a Nazi-Like Plot?

obamawhitewomen

by Kelly Crawford from her blog Generation Cedar - Obama's Feminist Remark: It's Not About ChoiceKelly's really on a roll. Not merely content to make fun of an adult child coming to terms with possible parental abuse during homeschooled years now she's tossing about words like 'Hitler' and 'Choice' because of one short sentence uttered by the Commander in Chief, instantly invalidating her argument by the usage of the Nazis. Extremely disrespectful to anyone with Jewish heritage that may have lost family members to the camps. … [Read more...]
