Quoting Quiverfull: Spanking to Bring ‘Peace’ and ‘Stability’ Into the Home?

quotingquiverfull

by Michael Pearl of No Greater Joy - Spank and Save a Child Editor's note: This entire piece is part disgusting and part hysterical. Mr. Pearl is ranting against all the naysayers who think spanking is abusive towards children, even as there are studies which prove it is. He's also upset that his words are being taken out of context for quotes. Bonus points in the piece for his reference to uneducated 'hillbilly' women.  … [Read more...]

Image NLQ original

by Suzanne TitkemeyerThis is one of those sad stories where a child of a prominent homeschooling family leaves the family suddenly with a horrifying twist. Alecia Pennington left her family of origin last year when she turned 18, escaping like many homeschooled young people with the help of her grandparents.

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - God Makes You Strong For The JobEditor's note: Wow, now that is some shaming/blaming for those who are sick and exhausted! Where in the Bible does it state that you have to have a perfectly cleaned home and scrubbed perfect children? Guess it's easier to do when you have a passel of adopted kids from another country to behave like servants. Oh, that's right, those adopted kids disappeared without much of a trace. … [Read more...]

Reflections of an Unintentionally Undercover Atheist

Image from Kaleesha Williams.com

by Kaleesha Williams from her blog The Lost (And Found) Mind of Kaleesha Williams I went to the dentist earlier this week.  I’ve only been to this office once, but I like the people, they’re friendly.  Having taken the children to a dentist in a nearby town and getting my oldest into an orthodontist up near St. Louis I’ve come to the conclusion that people in and around the dental profession are some of the friendliest, sweetest-natured professionals in the world.  I’m told they have to be because so many people hate dentists.  But that’s not what I want to talk about today. … [Read more...]

quotingquiverfull

by Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies - The Roman Road to Salvation For Your FamilyEditor's note: Leaving out much of Nancy's words about saving others and the scriptures you must memorize.

Image NLQ original

by Adam Frank from NPR - Science Denialism Has ConsequencesEditor's note: In light of the recent measles outbreak due in no small part to people taking religious exemptions on childhood vaccinations (like Zsuzsanna Anderson and Debi Pearl among others) and even HSLDA's refusal to take sides in a public safety issue I think we should revisit the issue of  refusing to vaccinate your children for religious reasons. NPR has posted an excellent article on how denying proven science does have real life consequences for everyone. Since Evangelical and Fundamentalist Christianity seems to be the biggest practitioners of Science Denialism we're starting to see the consequences. Your thoughts? … [Read more...]

quotingquiverfull

by Matt Walsh from The Matt Walsh Blog - So Should We Just Round Up The Anti-Vaccine Parents And Ship Them To Guantanamo? (Don't be afraid to click on the link as we always use 'Do Not Link' on Matt's blog, but be prepared for a huge number of pop up ads.)Editor's note: Since the exposure of unvaccinated children and adults at Disneyland to someone with an active case of measles leading to a spreading outbreak of a disease thought to be eradicated years ago there's been much talk of isolating those without the vaccination.  Many physicians offices, schools and other public places are starting to ban the unvaccinated. The Anti-Vaxxer movement is firmly entrenched in the world of QF and E … [Read more...]
