News: Jim Bob Duggar Pals Around With Christian Convict

news

by Suzanne TitkemeyerNews that came out yesterday with an accompanying photograph to prove it's more than a rumor is that Jim Bob Duggar went to Mississippi to be there when tax evading scofflaw Kent Hovind was released from prison. I guess since Mississippi is such a hop, skip and a jump from Arkansas when you own a plane.Remember Hovind? He's a big proponent of Young Earth Creationism and started the Dinosaur Adventure Land  in Pensacola, Florida. He pushes the idea that the earth is only maybe six thousand years old instead of the at least fifty thousand years that carbon dating has proven and millions of years old  other scientific methods have proven. That's not the only thing h … [Read more...]

Created To Need A Help Meet: Part 10 How Do I Need Thee? (Only Men Have Dreams)

Createdtoneed

by Aletha cross posted from her blog Yllom Mormonp 53-54 Text is in purpleI Need Her to Support My VisionEvery man has a vision, and visions are tenuous and iffy by nature. A man with a vision hopes to surmount difficult circumstances, doing what others think is impossible. A vision will waver like a mirage, sometimes promising cool water and other times looking like shifting sand. Most men lose hope of fulfilling their dreams and settle for a TV series. If you have a vision, you need a helper suited to that vision. It is not necessary for her to believe in it as you do, but she must believe in you. A man can keep his own vision alive if his wife runs his supply line and praises … [Read more...]

When Christians Eat Their Own Wounded – Bill Gothard’s New Website

news

by Suzanne TitkemeyerSeveral different websites and organizations have gone after the very hypocritical IBLP founder Bill Gothard as soon as he emerged back in the public eye. Mr. Gothard is just doing what all the pastors caught with their hands and assorted body parts where they shouldn't be do after the scandal has died down. I think it is also safe to say we're going to also see Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar try to do exactly the same thing within six months, but only after they jettison Josh Duggar due to the pending lawsuit one of his victims filed. … [Read more...]

Image by Bruce Gerencser used with permission

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Life and Times of Bruce GerencserEditor's note: While this is not directly Quiverfull related it's a creepy privacy-invading new thing in mega churches with possible frighting implications and usages. Excerpt from Why Are Churches Using Creepy Face Recognition Technology? by Valerie Tarico: Churches just got a new way to figure out who is sleeping in on Sunday morning: facial recognition software that scans the congregation and records who showed up. Churchix is a product of Skakash LLC, which sells Face-Six for law enforcement, border control, and commercial applications. According to CEO Moshe Greenshpan, in the 4 months since the … [Read more...]

by Aletha cross posted from her blog Yllom Mormonpp 48-50Alrighty. I hope everyone is doing well. I'm really excited for this post, because Michael lets us play a game! I'm calling it the Sexist Stereotype Game, because it shows how sexist we really are. Let's jump right in, shall we? Text is in purple.I Need Her Sensitivity I need her companionship, mercy, and grace. The nature of man is found in the husband and wife's combination.

Thoughts on Charleston

Image of Emmanuel Church Steeple from Defeating The Dragons

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating The Dragons If you haven’t heard about what happened in Charleston, South Carolina this past Wednesday night, here’s a brief summary: A white man walked into a Bible study at Emmanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church– which is one of the oldest black congregations in the country and is an icon of the Abolitionist and Civil Rights movements– and sat in the service for an hour before shooting and killing nine black people, mostly women, while saying “I have to do it.

Quoting Quiverfull: A Child’s Questions Are Always Rebellion?

quotingquiverfull

by Michael Pearl in 1995 from the first issue of No Greater Joy Magazine - Why? But Why?Editor's note: It's pretty sick that the mere question of a child is considered a deficit of character. Some kids are just going to ask why or ask about different things and it has nothing to do with anything remotely like rebellion. I remember that my youngest asked me lots of questions, many that I was forced to answer that I didn't know what the answer was, but I would find out. I always thought that her ability to always turn to me to ask questions was a healthy thing, not a rebellion. There's nothing evil in a child wanting to know things, it's a sign of a healthy lively growing intellect. Please … [Read more...]
