More from Arkansas Matters.com . What follows below is a jaw dropping list of various allegations. After reading this please consider signing the Change.org petition calling for Justin Harris to step down from his political seat - Resign For Your Actions In Re-Homing Your Adoptive Daughters. Why isn't the State of Arkansas charging Justin and Marsha Harris with child abuse in the role of rehoming the girls and their treatment of the girls witnessed by the babysitter? Surely keeping a child deprived of human contact and locked in a room is cruel and abusive? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Quiverfull Making Martyrs Out Of Mothers?

quotingquiverfull

by Steven Ertelt from Life News - No  Greater Love: Putting the life of her unborn baby first; mother dies after giving birthEditor's note: Life News uses the death of a woman who from all accounts wasn't Quiverfull to make a point about how good Christian mothers are supposed to carry pregnancies that will end their lives to the end, no matter what the doctors advise. They are canonizing the dead women Suzanne Mazzola as an example to be looked up to instead of a woman who took a risk and paid the price. It was her decision and her's alone to make, but typically Life News ignores that. If they had their way that decision would be made in advance for all women. … [Read more...]

by Debi Pearl from No Greater Joy - Obsessions Editor's note: We'll be sharing this article in bits and pieces over the next few days since so much of it is so sheerly awful.

Today Debi explains about Michael's hunting of those wascally wabbits and what happened in the aftermath of his hunting she had to deal with. … [Read more...]

A Film That Helps Us Understand Why Pearl Becomes Appealing: How do parents get caught up in extreme practices?

Image from Cindy Kunsman - Under Much Grace

by Cindy Kunsman cross posted from her blog Under Much GraceA few years ago, I attended a professional conference that dealt with addiction which featured John Bradshaw as one of the speakers. I didn't like his old PBS series on codependency and families, but in recent years, I've found his lectures and books enlightening. He points out well, much like Alice Miller does, that corporal punishment in particular destroys critical thinking and makes a person ripe for manipulation. In a talk, much of which referred back to his own history of abuse, he ended up mentioningFocus on the Family and Richard Fugate as examples of ideologues who recommend abusive practices in their books. I approa … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Marriage Is Meant Only To Serve God?

Quoting

by Francis and Lisa Chan from The Gospel Coalition as quoted by Ladies Against Feminism - Marriage and EternityEditor's note: LAF seems to be laboring under the idea that marriage is mostly about serving God. Did I miss that part of the Bible because I don't remember anything said about the primary function of marriage was serving God. What about those people that say that the primary function of marriage is to keep you from sexual sin, or to increase the kingdom by birthing a quiverful of righteous arrows? Seems to me that different groups put different spins on marriage instead of recognizing it for what it is, a union of two people who love each other and want to spend every day for t … [Read more...]
