by R. J. Rushdooney from CRI - Christian Families on the Edge “All the basic governmental powers in society, save one, the death penalty, have been given [by God] to the family, not to the state nor to the church.…A mark of anti-Christianity is the move to strip the family of these powers.” … [Read more...]

Dude, Seriously? – Answering Kevin Swanson

pride

 by Calulu cross posted from her blog True Love Doesn't RapeRecently Kevin Swanson, radio babbler and righteous rabblerouser against all things not homeschooling fundamentalist Biblical patriarchy has been making more of an ass out of himself than usual. It's not merely due to the fact that he has a new book to flog about and promote by calling everyone that doesn't agree with him an 'Apostate', a title that is also a big part of the title of his new book.

CTBHHM: Surrendering Your Autonomy to Another

created

by Libby Anne cross posted from her blog Love Joy FeminismCreated To Be His Help Meet, pp. 136—37Sometimes Debi misinterprets Bible passages, and badly. More often, though, she simply adds things, brazenly, and without even offering any of her twisted scriptures to back them up. This wouldn’t be such a problem except that evangelicals and fundamentalists make a big deal of adhering to the Bible and the Bible alone, condemning mainline Christians for adding to the Bible. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Who Decides the Definition of “Apostate”?

It might not be a literal sin, but it's a crime against fashion

by Kevin Swanson of Generations With Vision - Homeschool Apostates and Kathryn Joyce's Sins And, yes, yes. We can see that faithlessness tends to be generational and builds on itself from generation to generation.I make no bones about it.  We’re in the minority.  The masses are moving towards apostasy. The millennial generation is far more likely to be pro-homosexual, pro-evolution, and pro-socialist than the previous generation. (Reference: http://www.pewforum.org/2010/02/17/religion-among-the-millennials/). … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Crying in Our Petticoats?

tutu_petticoat

by Doug Wilson of Blog and Mablog - Bitterness and the Unsubmissive Wife But if every time we get to such a statement of what a wife’s fundamental lack of a submissive spirit might be doing in her relationship to her husband we get a histrionic reaction, then perhaps we are seeing a refusal on the part of certain women to see women as true moral agents. Feminists (including the professing evangelicals) are those who loudly … [Read more...]

Sometimes Church is the Problem

crumblingchurch

by Boze Herrington cross posted from his blog The Talking LlamaIn May 2011 I requested a meeting with a church leader about the terrible time I had been having.I hadn’t eaten, really, in three weeks. I could barely sleep. Some nights I would just sit in my room and cry and cry as I thought about my life, about the kind of man I was, someone whose anger and hatred had left him alone and completely friendless. I cared about ideas more than I cared about people; and I realized I was heading towards the same miserable end as my hero, … [Read more...]

Victims and Abusers and Why Church is Not Safe

myfairlady

by Samantha cross posted from her blog Defeating the Dragons[trigger warning for abuse] If you follow me on twitter, you might have noticed that I watched My Fair Lady this past weekend, one of my favorite movies from when I was younger, but a movie I haven’t seen in years. And while I enjoyed the nostalgia and singing all the songs again, it was not an entirely pleasant experience and I probably won’t watch it again. Watching Professor Higgins, listening to him sing “Let a Woman in Your Life,” realizing that he never uses Eliza’s name and instead prefers to call her wretch, insect, and baggage, and understanding for the first time that Professor Higgins is an abuser . . . … [Read more...]
