by Libby Anne cross posted from her blog Love, Joy, FeminismIf you read my blog, you’re probably aware of the Christian homeschooling subculture’s patriarchy problem. A variety of prominent Christian homeschool leaders have been promoting patriarchal family structures at homeschool conventions and in homeschool publications for well over a decade, and two of those leaders—Bill Gothard and Doug Phillips—have recently fallen, engulfed in scandal.

Don't know if anyone here has been following the saga of Flip Benham's sons and HGTV. You remember Flip, he is the head of Operation Rescue/Operation Save America and one of the big early players in the Right to Life movement.Flip organizes folks to carry signs, protest at any clinic that might offer abortion services and Planned Parenthood clinics.

Which is sad because there are lots of legitimate reasons to visit those clinics that have nothing to do with getting an abortion. … [Read more...]
