Quoting Quiverfull: Public Schools Filled With Mega Sin?

quotingquiverfull

by Voddie Baucham from Exodus Mandate - 5 Reasons NOT to Sent Your Kids Back to Public SchoolEditor's note: Many of Voddie's other four reasons are just as filled with blaming and scare tactics as this bit. But the claims of 'brutal beatings' seems to be something that is more associated with homeschooling done the Michael Pearl 'To Train Up A Child' way than at any public school. Homeschooling is also rife with abuse, a fact that Voddie seems not to realize. At least at public school teachers are mandatory reporters of abuse, unlike homeschool, where abuse gets hidden or denied until there's a dead body. Oh and I am so hoping Voddie decides not to pay  his taxes, as he seems to indicate … [Read more...]

Mythical Creation Science: The Beginning

WhenCowsKidsCollide

by Mel cross posted from her blog When Cows and Kids CollideEditor's note: New series by Mel, who is a science teacher. This is an important one considering so many in Quiverfull homeschool their children and may not have much of a science background. Good work Mel!I'd like to start a series of blog posts on the problems with "Creation Science". Since I've been reading NLQ, I realized that some parents who home-schooled while in CP/QF then left or kids who have grown up in that system may realize that "Creation Science" seems...wrong....but don't entirely know how to explain the actual sciences involved well enough to fix their educational gaps. … [Read more...]

NLQ Question of the Week: Why is Established Science Ignored?

Questionoftheweek

This is a new series we have started running on Thursdays. Examining some of the questions involving long held Quiverfull theology and life.Yesterday when I was reading through The Daily Mail's interview with Advanced Training Institute/Institute of Basic Life Principles founder Bill Gothard and preparing to post it here I was struck anew by the complete denial of scientific thought in Quiverfull. Example: In last night's posting Gothard claimed that the wrong kind of lust can damage the immune system and the endocrine system. There's no science to back this up any more than his claims that the semen of a man who is not your husband will cause cancer. No science behind it. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Michael Says Public School Stressed Out Kids Brains?

quotingquiverfull

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy Magazine - What Age?Editor's note: Michael is right about one thing in this piece - learning to read is part developmental function. But his comparison between regular schools, both public and private and homeschooling is not so cut and dried. More fear tactic than anything else. … [Read more...]

Jason Lisle Says There is No Such Thing as an Atheist

bruce gerencser 2014

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Life and Times of Bruce GerencserImagine, for a moment, that every time someone told me they were a Christian I told them that they weren’t really a Christian because there is no such thing as a Christian. It says right here in the Book of Bruce Almighty® that everyone knows that Bruce Almighty exists and that anyone who says they are a Christian is suppressing their knowledge of the existence of Bruce. The Christian would likely say that they know they are a Christian because Jesus saved them and they believe the teaching found in the Bible. Imagine if I REFUSED to allow the Christian to authentically tell their own story.  Can you ima … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Public Schooling Sets Up Children For Failure?

Quoting

by the ladies at Ladies Against Feminism commenting upon a piece by Justin McBrayer at the New York Times - One Reason Our Children Don't Think There Are Moral FactsEditor's note - LAF is taking the original author to task for not saying that scripture is the final truth on everything. The original piece in the New York Times is how whatever school the author's child is attending is not teaching the real difference between fact and opinion. While he may actually have a point, or not, LAF as always gets the wrong end of the stick and makes it all about how public school is evil and designed to make children fail. … [Read more...]

A Movement Much Bigger Than My Parents

Lana

by Lana Hope cross posted from her blog Wide Open Ground originally posted May 2013Heather of Becoming Worldly put together a post today that gave me physical tears and a knot in my stomach. The post centers on the 2009 a men’s leadership summit, and a speech given by Doug Philips. Doug Philips of Vision Forum was also previously an attorney at HSLDA. Its worth mentioning, as Heather notes, that most of the famous [Christian] homeschool leaders have connections with each other, and together they built up the Christian homeschool movement. … [Read more...]
