by Michael Pearl from World Magazine - To Train Up A Pharisee  “I have never advocated—either in private, public speaking, or in writing—withholding food from a child, forcing children to sleep on the floor or outside, constraining them in blankets (or by any other means), spanking children on their feet, faces, or backs, locking them in small rooms or tight containers, or forcing them to stay outside in cold weather.” … [Read more...]

CTBHHM: Are You a Dumb Cluck?

It's demeaning to call another person a 'dumb cluck' and not sure it's ever appropriate to call an animal that either! Debi Pearl sometimes uses put downs no one should use in polite society

by Libby Anne cross posted from her blog Love, Joy, FeminismCreated To Be His Help Meet, pp. 217—219Dear Mrs. Pearl, I am so tired and discouraged. I feel as though my husband just doesn’t love me or care for his family as he should. The house is falling apart. The yard is full of trash.

Then some old lady called and needed her car started, and h … [Read more...]

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...]

rayrice

by Voddie Baucham from his Facebook statusesFor those of you who don't follow the news or football or NFL let's summarize this: Ray Rice, running back for the Baltimore Ravens NFL team, beat his then fiancee and was suspended for a couple of games until the website TMZ posted the video of the incident. In the video Rice hits his fiancee so hard she's knocked unconscious in a hotel elevator before he drags her out of frame. After the NFL was chided for their slap on the wrist of Rice they then suspended him indefinitely and the Baltimore Ravens team cut him from their team. … [Read more...]
