News: HSLDA’s Newest Defense Case – The Naugler Family

Initially wasn't going to post about Kentucky CPS seizing all ten children in the Naugler family since it's been well covered at both Homeschoolers Anonymous and in great depth by Kathryn Brightbill. But.. more and  more comes out each day on this family. The Naugler parents are claiming that they've been targeted by CPS because they practice 'Free Range Parenting' and are 'Unschooling' the children, but that doesn't seem to be why CPS acted. Stories are emerging about things like piles of garbage, human feces and glass being rife on the homestead as well as the photos of the family home, basically a tent top with three stick walls they've lived in even in the cold of winter. Failure to … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: How Not Voting Is Actually Voting?

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...]

Am I Am Prophet, Priest or King?

by Emily from Christian Patriarchal Watch List For Parents as quoted from Facebook“Is there a test that will tell me if I’m more of a prophet, a priest, or a king?”This is a quote from a young male church planter. He goes on,"I’ve gotten this question a lot lately, and to my knowledge, no such assessment exists.[emphasis added] Most leaders, however, will recognize themselves quite readily in one of the three general profiles..." http://wenatcheethehatchet.blogspot.com/…/prophet-priest-an… … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Which One of Us Has Cognitive Dissonance Here?

by Author Unknown from Simple Unhooked Living - RFID: Where The Rubber Meets The Christian RoadEditor's note: Found this blog through it being quoted by Ladies Against Feminism in support of no childhood vaccinations and no big government interference into home-based businesses they love so much. While sustainable living isn't necessarily a bad thing, in fact it might be the thing our nation needs more of, the conspiracy theories at this site range from laughable to downright frightening. This bit quoted come from a rant about how the RFID implantable chips are the Mark of the Beast, the "666" mentioned in the Bible ushering in the End Times. We all know how much the QF crowd loves to … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: What it Means to Be Biblically Submissive?

Found on Minthegap (Is This Modest.com Adam Gregorin) blog leading to Ken Ham's Answers In Genesis - A Girl Named RuthEditor's note: Ham complains that most Christian children's books depict the mother with the open Bible reading to the children. This is because even in those 'sold-out' Quiverfull Evangelical Fundamentalist extremist homes the fathers don't do reading to the children, or anything involving teaching or homeschooling. It's a realistic depiction. Perhaps you need to teach your wonderful Christian males that they need to parent too before blaming it on feminism or overbearing women. … [Read more...]

“How to Win Over Depression” review 28 -48

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating The Dragons Last week I spent a good bit of time talking about how Tim doesn’t understand the symptoms of depression and what those symptoms can look like; this week it becomes blindingly obvious why Tim so deeply and fundamentally doesn’t understand depression. In his chapter “The Symptoms of Depression” he makes it very clear that he has a mental picture of the ideal depressed person. All of his descriptions of the various symptoms point to the common cultural understanding of how a depressed person behaves and what they look like. … [Read more...]

A Close Look at the Complementarian Argument

by Kristen Rosser cross posted from her blog Wordgazer's Words Complementarianism and the Local Church is an article by Jonathan Leeman on the 9 Marks website, which is a conservative evangelical site dedicated to "help[ing] pastors, future pastors, and church members see what a biblical church looks like, and to take practical steps for becoming one."  The site has published a series of articles on male headship, and the arguments are pretty much the same ones my various blog posts have rebutted though the last several years.  But this one, which seems to be an introduction to its male headship series, was brought to my attention on another blog, and I'd like to take a closer look at what i … [Read more...]
