Gaslighting

Lamplighter Lighting Gas Street Light

by Ellen cross posted from her blog When Church Hurts Editor's Note: We've covered this topic before but it never hurts to revisit some of the basics of harmful practices in churches and the world.I’ve been reading a bit about gas-lighting lately and at first I didn’t think that it played a part in my spiritual abuse. Maybe that’s because many of the articles and blogs that I read assumed that we all know what gas-lighting is already and so they didn’t give a very complete description or definition. I think it was the word “crazy” that finally hit home with me. Essentially, as I started putting it all together, I determined that gas-lighting is when someone tries to make you believe y … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: AIDS Free By December 25th – The Duggars Lose Their Homophobe Crown?

The gleeful homophobic put the gays to death and giving illegal medical advice Andersons, Steven and Zsuzsanna

from Raw Story by Steven Anderson, Pastor of Faithful Word Baptist Church - Arizona Pastor Predicts "AIDS-Free Christmas" If All Gays Are Killed, As God CommandsAnd here we thought Jim Bob and Michelle were the hatingest haters of the homosexuals in the world of the Christian Patriarch Movement. Looks like Zsuzsanna Anderson's hubby is trying to snatch that crown from their heads.This extreme hatred of gays to the point where he is advocating killing gay people makes me wonder if Steven is so far into the closet that he's seeing the next century's worth of Christmas presents. Many of these guys in the Quiverfull movement are so obsessed with proving their masculinity by keeping the … [Read more...]

1950s-sweater1

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating The Dragons Ok, so the last time I talked about porn, a lot of people seemed to think that I don’t have any problems with porn, or that I think that porn is always ok and having negative thoughts/feelings about porn makes you a prude or something. So let me clarify something up front: I have a problem with a lot of porn, but I do my best to limit my discussions about porn to arguments that are reliable in the sense that I have more than anecdotal evidence to back me up. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Dispel The Darkness Or Else?

light

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - A Family of LightHas anyone else noticed that in Nancy Campbell's world you are told to trust God, yet told to do all these things to make sure evil or darkness isn't in your life? Wouldn't 100% trusting God mean that you could trust Him to over shine any darkness or devil supposedly in your life? Too many contradictory things in Nancy's world. Trust but do that voodoo you do to make sure it sticks..oh, Nancy, you are like a little kid hiding under the covers from the Boogieman sometimes. … [Read more...]

voddie

by R.L. Stollar, HA Community Coordinator,  cross posted from Homeschoolers Anonymous Due to the controversy over the lack of indictment of Darren Wilson in the Michael Brown shooting in Ferguson, Missouri, American Christians are having heated conversations about racism in the United States.

Quoting Quiverfull: Secular Men Don’t Take Any Responsibility?

manlymen

by Kelly Crawford from Generation Cedar - Raising Boys Into Men: Tend The FieldKelly sincerely believes only Christian guys are 'Take Charge'. Too bad in reality it seems many 'Good Christian Men' are either bullies/tin plated dictators or apathetic blame shifters. There doesn't seem to be many guys between those two toxic polar opposites in the church.  Another false charge laid at the feet of feminism by Kelly. Just like women, men are all different and run the gamut of 'types' Saying that a religious dogma makes men superior to others without the same beliefs is short-sided, childish and insulting to all men. Talk about man hating. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Isn’t It Cruel To Make Barren Women Crave Babies?

Yes, Nancy went there and is speaking well of Catholic icon Mother Theresa

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies -  All Women Are MothersInteresting that Nancy "I Abandoned My Liberian Adoptees" Campbell is putting every women in the world in the exact same box marked 'Motherhood' and invoking a Catholic icon to do it. Most of the time it seems like the only time the Catholics are mentioned in CPM is when someone wants to toss rocks at them and say they aren't 'real Christians' … [Read more...]
