Patriarchs Behaving Badly: Pat Robertson Owns Diamond Mines?

A Congo child mining for diamonds. Most diamond miners in Africa are children, being paid very little while being exposed to hazardous chemicals and conditions.

from the Forward Progressives site - Joel Osteen's Missing $600,000 and Pat Robertson's Questionable Friends Pat Robertson is estimated to be worth anywhere from $200 million to $1 billion. Given that he sold International Family Entertainment to Fox in 1997 for $1.9 billion, my guess is, his net worth is quite a bit more than $200 million. And then, there’s his diamond mine. Yes, a diamond mine. … [Read more...]

There’s No Easy Way to Get “Well”

J.D.Salinger

by Lisa Kerr cross posted from her blog My Cult LifeA little more backstory on why I took an extended break from the blog:I became a recluse. I’m not about to compare myself to J.D. Salinger, but I will say I understand him. If you don’t know, he’s the author of The Catcher in the Rye. As his book’s popularity grew, Salinger withdrew from the public. He published less new work and cut off contact with people. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Women Keep Silent?

hush woman

by Steven L Anderson Pastor of Faithful Word Baptist Church as quoted by Alter Net - Pastor Who Prayed For Obama's Death Has a New Cause: Shutting Women Up In Church“Now obviously, before the service begins, there’s chatting and talking going on, that’s perfectly legitimate. When we all sing praises to God, of course the ladies should also lift up their voices,” Anderson, who is also anti-gay, said.  But once services begin, it’s shut-up time. … [Read more...]

Nightline Prime and Purity Balls

white-rose

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating The Dragons I’ve seen a few documentaries about “Purity Balls” (which, every time I say that, my partner sniggers and I glare at him), and some are better than others. ABC’s Nightline Prime 20-minute documentary of the Wilson’s “14th Annual Father-Daughter Purity Ball” is not one of the better ones. The interviewer seemed to be either amused or baffled, and the only questions featured during the program seem to indicate a lack of awareness of what the underlying culture is– although she seemed to be catching on toward the end. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Say What? Hitler Was The Anti-Christ

swastikanative

Caution: Godwinning below. Found on Facebook on a random person's timeline. Posting this as a cautionary example of what can happen when you have very little education and pick up a Bible. Reads like the writer just read a book on Hitler. Is Hitler the Anti-christ? You decide!(Martin Luther a leading/pioneer protestant revolutionary is also from Germany=very good!ATTN: Though this is end time prophetic foreshadowing on my part it does not replace Biblical end time prophesy based on an understanding of Biblical scriptures which understanding is  a gift of the Holy Spirit! … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Lesbian Sex is Like Esau How?

lesbians

by John Piper from his blog Desiring God - Lesbian Sex, HIV, Esau and Christ The Insanity of SinEsau “sold his birthright for a single meal” (Hebrews 12:16). This is insane. His desire for food had made him irrational: “I am about to die; of what use is a birthright to me?” (Genesis 25:32). Besides the spiritual aspects of primogeniture, the firstborn was to receive twice the inheritance of other brothers (Deuteronomy 21:17). … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Homosexuality A Choice? That’s Your Final Answer?

effeminate-men-2

by Michael Pearl posted in No Greater Joy magazine - Homosexuality and the Brain Recent studies on the effects of behavior upon the brain have proven shocking. You may remember the media delight about fifteen years ago when it was discovered that the brains of homosexual men were different from straight men. It was immediately hailed as proof of the long-advanced conjecture that men who prefer same-sex eroticism are in fact born that way. What better justification for one’s “sexual orientation” than scientific proof that it is totally natural? The defense, “God created me this way” suddenly had irrefutable scientific backing. … [Read more...]
