Quoting Quiverfull: AIDS Free By December 25th – The Duggars Lose Their Homophobe Crown?

The gleeful homophobic put the gays to death and giving illegal medical advice Andersons, Steven and Zsuzsanna

from Raw Story by Steven Anderson, Pastor of Faithful Word Baptist Church - Arizona Pastor Predicts "AIDS-Free Christmas" If All Gays Are Killed, As God CommandsAnd here we thought Jim Bob and Michelle were the hatingest haters of the homosexuals in the world of the Christian Patriarch Movement.

obamawhitewomen

by Kelly Crawford from her blog Generation Cedar - Obama's Feminist Remark: It's Not About ChoiceKelly's really on a roll. Not merely content to make fun of an adult child coming to terms with possible parental abuse during homeschooled years now she's tossing about words like 'Hitler' and 'Choice' because of one short sentence uttered by the Commander in Chief, instantly invalidating her argument by the usage of the Nazis. Extremely disrespectful to anyone with Jewish heritage that may have lost family members to the camps. … [Read more...]

ripped-callus

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - Freedom From AddictionsWhile there may be a few grains of truth in Michael's blathering he ruins it by jumping to some pretty big conclusions later. He still believes that women are not consumers or pornography. Also, is he *really* paying that much attention to the hands of other men? … [Read more...]
