cps

by Libby Anne cross posted from her blog Love Joy Feminism and the blog Homeschoolers AnonymousI recently came upon something posted on HSLDA’s site some years ago that I found interesting, in light of what I have written about HSLDA in the past. HSLDA releases stories of the cases it handles in various states, partly to keep its members apprised of what it does and partly to encourage people to stay members.

False Dichotomies: “Homeschooled Girls vs. Feminists”

homeschooledgirls

by Samantha Fields cross posted from her blog Defeating the Dragons So, Robert Knight, an extremely conservative writer for Townhall and whose articles occasionally appear in publications like the Washington Times, wrote an article last Tuesday called “Homeschooled Girls vs. Feminists.” Since the article spends most of its time talking about grown women, I have to admit to some mild annoyance to the persistent infantilization of women in conservative circles. College-aged females are women, thank you. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: 2014?

Before the President can retire to 'go surfing' he's going to have to learn to stand up on the board instead of body surfing...

by Pat Robertson from "The 700 Club" Friday, January 3rd, 2014.“The other thing is I think that the President is going to be severely, severely hampered. I think that America is going to turn against him much more so than now, as that Affordable Care thing starts biting hard as it is, he’s going to be discredited terribly,” Robertson said. … [Read more...]

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Way Forward(Editorial note: Those that might post comments here to Bruce suggesting spiritual things should read this first, another excellent post by Bruce.)Recently, our youngest son moved out and he left behind some trading cards for our grandson.

Quoting Quiverfull: You Can’t Take Your Paycheck to Bed?

leanonhusband

by Suzanne Venker posted at Ladies Against Feminism and Fox News - Why women still need husbands Financial independence is a great thing, but you can’t take your paycheck to bed with you. And there’s nothing empowering about being beholden to an employer when what you really want is to have a baby. That’s dependency of a different sort.This is the conclusion to which most women have come. Research shows that what women want more than anything else is not to work full-time and year-round but to live balanced lives. … [Read more...]

I was working on getting editing jobs, but they were few and far between, and my health just doesn’t allow for outside-the-house employment. I also started writing here because I wanted to finally say out loud a lot of the things that had been slowly germinating over the past four or five years but had never been in a place where I felt capable of expressing them. … [Read more...]

God Killed Our Baby: Isn’t God Awesome?

hand

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Way ForwardEvangelical Christians believe that their God is the giver and taker of life and that he controls the universe. As the old song goes, he’s got the whole world in his hands. Everything that happens in their life is according to the purpose and plan of their God. When tragedy comes their way, Evangelicals turn to prayer and the Bible to find hope and comfort. The Bible says in Romans 8:28: And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. … [Read more...]
