by Mel cross posted from her blog When Cows and Kids CollideWhile my brain continues healing after my car accident, I grabbed an easy to read book to discuss.(Editor's note: Feel better soon Miss Mel!

Quoting Quiverfull: Why Hand Holding in Courtship is a Slippery Slope to Sin?

quotingquiverfull

by Anonymous from their blog Necessarily Anonymous - How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Arranged Marriages Part 2Editor's note: This is a newer quiverfull marry 'em off while they are young once daddy picks the spouse blogger I found through our old pal Vaughn Ohlman. I'm always dismayed to see Christians so hung up on every single small thing that they have to stop, study scripture and then extrapolate what they've read into ever more strict rules and don'ts.

by Adam Gregorian at Minthegap.com - How Long Should I Be Engaged?Editor's note: You remember this guy? He's the one that had the website Is This Modest? where he had loads of photos of scantily clad teenagers with a lot of tut-tutting over their immodestly in a very creepy and inappropriate way?
