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...]

Quoting Quiverfull: How Not Voting Is Actually Voting?

quotingquiverfull

by Zsuzsanna Anderson from Are They All Yours?!?! - Okay, I VotedEditor's note: This is Pastor Steven L. Anderson's wife's response to another piece quoted here where she explained all the reasons why women should not vote. She got push back on that issue from her own group of supporters. Here's how she claims she votes. Lots of shaming and blaming as usual. Emphasis below mine on something she claims others do when it's obvious she too wastes time online. I would check to see if her pants were on fire, but she thinks wearing pants is a sin. Is her skirt scorched and smoking yet? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Public High School is… a Concentration Camp?

This a concentration camp - Auschwitz

by Ray Fournier from No Greater Joy magazine - From Behind Enemy LinesHave to wonder if this guy has ever actually visited a prison or a concentration camp since he's so cavalierly tossing about those descriptions of the high school he teaches at. I do know one thing, if this guy was teaching any of my children after reading this article filled with religious hyperbole I'd go down to that school and ask to have them transferred out of his classes. Breaking Godwin's law again seems to be something the extremes in religion love to do.  … [Read more...]

Farris: Patriarchy Makes Kids Gay and Atheists

michaelfarris

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. Michael Farris, another prominent Christian homeschool leader, has since come out criticizing these leaders and the “patriarchy” they taught. Now Farris has openly criticized “patriarchy” as part of a keynote address while keynoting at a homeschool … [Read more...]

The 10 Best (AKA, Worst) Quotations From Mary Pride’s “The Child Abuse Industry”

jawdrop1

by R. A. Stollar cross posted from Homeschoolers AnonymousMost Christian homeschoolers know Mary Pride as “the queen of homeschooling,” one of the founders of the Quiverfull movement, the anti-feminism author of The Way Home, or the publisher of the wildly popular magazine “Practical Homeschooling.” But she also wrote a lesser known book in 1985 entitled The Child Abuse Industry: Outrageous Facts About Child Abuse & Everyday Rebellions Against a System that Threatens Every North American Family. It is a remarkable read that calls for a “Second North American Revolution” — namely, having babies, abolishing no-fault divorce, going to church, eliminating foster care, homeschooling, re-in … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: How Can Accountability and Standards Be ‘Wrong’?

rotten fruit

by Karen Campbell at her blog That Mom - Patriarchy on Trial, part four A new, organized, and clearly focused group of former homeschool students, motivated, in part, by the bad fruits of patriocentric homeschooling, have taken up the banner for homeschooling reform, putting the very good ideals at the heart of homeschooling at risk. Their legitimate concerns over some instances of sexual, physical, emotional, and spiritual abuse of children have resulted in their misguided call for state-operated control over all homeschooling and have even extended to their advancement of “homosexual rights” for homeschooled children. Though I have had similar concerns about treatment of all children, home … [Read more...]

News: Utah Modesty Police Photoshop Yearbook Photos

modestypolice

from Michael Stone at his blog Progressive Secular Humanist - American Taliban: Utah Modesty Police Edit Girls' Yearbook PhotosEditorial note: This has been all over the media the last few days. Apparently  Good Christians/Mormons (tm) decided that tank tops and bra straps were the big No-No and decided to keep Utah boys pure of lustful thoughts by photoshopping (badly) sleeves onto shirts covering shoulders and bra straps. More slut-shaming in this modesty standard that wasn't even applied consistently.Modesty standards and slut shaming isn't just for Biblical Patriarches, Minthegap's Adam Gregorin and church busybodies any more. … [Read more...]

News: Duggars Dealing With Bill Gothard Fallout

jessaseawald

Jezebel.Com has written a horribly funny but thought-provoking  piece on the changes through the years in the Duggar family along with how they are answering the criticisms for following Bill "Grabby Hands" Gothard - How are the Duggars dealing with the Gothard Sex Scandal?So, what follows may be the greatest Duggar based conspiracy theory that you've read this month. Ok, it's not that great but it's a theory. Now, it is well known among Gothard's that the kind of crunchy, curly home-permed hair favored by Michelle and the clan in the early season is based on preferences of Gothard, who loved long, wavy womanly hair and damn the woman who does not possess sacred this crown. Now it may … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Killer Babies?

killerbaby

by Voddie Bauchaum from the sermon 'The Doctrine of Depravity' "One of the reasons that God makes human babies small is so they won't kill their parents in their sleep. They're evil. Yes, this is true of children. 'None is righteous; no, not one.'…Yes, that little, precious one—you better believe it. If you don't, you miss the big picture and you don't realize your desperate need to get the gospel to your child again and again and again and again." … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: When You Graduate You’ve Accomplished Nothing?

IMG_1432

by Matt Walsh from The Matt Walsh Blog - Congratulations, graduates: you've done exactly what you're expected and legally required to do(Editor's note: While this isn't necessarily a 'quiverfull' or 'evangelical' issue, it is something rather screwy that seems to go against all conventional wisdom. Particularly since for some kids just getting through high school itself is a major accomplishment. What is wrong with celebrating the hard work, dedication and accomplishment of someone else?) … [Read more...]
