Fascinating Womanhood Review: The Male Ego

male-ego

by Samantha cross posted from her blog Defeating The Dragons I’m halfway tempted to have today’s post be nothing but a collection of choice quotes from this chapter, because they almost entirely speak for themselves. However, like most of what Helen’s says, it’s all grounded in (unfortunately) common stereotypes about gender, so they are worth discussing. The chapter is titled “Masculine Pride,” and I had a hard time identifying anything in it that I could agree with or tolerate. Beginning with this: … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Doug Phillips Resignation from Vision Forum

Quotes1-300x250 (2)

by Doug Wilson from his blog Blog and Mablog -  Doug Phillips Resignation from Vision Forum I thought I should say something about Doug Phillips’ resignation from Vision Forum, but it won’t be very much. The news was of course tragic, sad, and humbling. That said, I thought his letter of resignation was good, and accomplished what a letter like that needed to accomplish. I am glad he stepped down from leadership, and am glad he cancelled his future speaking engagements, and that is all to the good. Given the sin, that is what should happen. We should grieve over the damage done, rejoice in his repentance, and wish him and his family nothing but the best. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Hiring Hitman For Hubby Same as Abortion?

Quotes1-300x250 (2)

from Ladies Against Feminism and The Gospel Coalition - Why We Should Legalize Murder for Hire I’ll be the first to admit it; hit men are shady. But they are shady because they are doing work that no one else wants to do, work that is, in fact, illegal. By labeling contract killing a “crime,” we have obscured the fact that hit men provide a valuable service to society. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Being Thankful Makes Him Take Out the Trash?

Quotes1-300x250 (2)

by Zsuzsanna Anderson, wife of pastor Steven L Anderson from her blog Are They All Yours? -Some Exciting Changes(Editorial note: Check out the oh so Christian and loving t-shirt worn by her husband in the first photo in the original posting. Whatever happened to doing as the Bible says and praying for your leaders, even if you happen to abhor them?) These classes have been so much fun! I typically go in the evenings, so by the time I get home, the house is picked up, the kids have had dinner, are bathed and ready for bed, with teeth brushed, the dinner dishes are done, and story time is in full swing. If that sounds like a dream come true - well, it is! … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Movies Help Sabotage Your Childs Future?

Quotes1-300x250

by Michael Pearl of No Greater Joy Ministries - Six Ways Parents Destroy Their Children If you view old TV programs made 50 years ago of families relating to one another, they look like today’s ideal Christian homeschool family. Daddy is respected and honored and Mother is cherished. Family problems were always resolved with good cheer and forgiveness. Teenage morality was taken for granted. The future was bright and full of hope, and there was no state of rebellion in the kids. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Is Homemade Porn Between Married Partners Okay?

Quotes1-300x250 (2)

by Doug Wilson from his blog Blog & Mablog - Home Made Porn And last, I want to address the pornification of modern life — and assume in the thought experiment that “secure means” really is possible. If it were possible to guard against voyeurism with the same degree of security that your bedroom lock and curtains provide, would it be lawful then? I don’t think it is possible, but what if it were? I would want to answer the same way I did in the second category above. It is wise to be wary. … [Read more...]
