Burning Down The Woodshed

woodshed

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating the Dragons As my partner can attest to, one of the things that have stuck with me from growing up in the Deep South is my reliance on idiomatic Southern expressions. In my area, “trip to the woodshed” was the most commonly used euphemism for corporal punishment, and while the adults who used this term obviously meant it humorously, hearing it made me feel a little sick. “I’m going to take you out back to the woodshed!” conjured images, for me, of lashings and beatings and screaming boys and girls– but in that old-fashioned Disney way, with the too-red cheeks and too-round eyes and deep furrows in the mother’s brow and the animation sequ … [Read more...]

by Suzanne Titkemeyer cross posted from her blog True Love Doesn't RapeWe've written and posted too many times here at NLQ about TLC's Duggar family, the stars of "19 Kids & Counting".  You can almost tell how well or not so well the show is doing in the ratings and when the premiere of the new season is by the flood of Duggar family related news/gossip that floods the internet.

gettingaswitch

by Suzanne TitkemeyerFor all our conversations here at NLQ over the horrible child abuse disguised as discipline you'd hope that the world outside of the fundamentalist evangelical Christian bubble would be free of this abuse, that parents would realize that most studies on physical violence as discipline show it does more harm than good. Sadly that's not the case.  This weekend the news proved yet again how pervasive these harmful patriarchal bad theology really is. The NFL's Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson was indicted on charges of 'reckless or negligent injury to a child' by a grand jury in Texas. … [Read more...]

She's explaining her thoughts in her blog on the 'why'.Another kid collector. Hope things go better for this lady than some of the other Evangelical Christian child collectors. Child collecting is also at the heart of what being Quiverfull means. … [Read more...]
