expensivebaby

Ladies Against Feminism is putting a completely different spin on the recent Supreme Court Hobby Lobby Decision by quoting Mercator Net. Their claim is that the main reason insurance companies cover birth control is because it's cheaper than pay for a baby. As quoted at Ladies Against Feminism - If anyone thought the controversy over Obamacare’s contraceptive mandate finished with the Supreme Court’s decision it’s time to think again. Over the past months the battle has been framed as conscience rights versus contraceptive rights. Now that conscience has won the first fight on points, a second round could be fought over money. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Who Decides What is ‘Normal’?

define-normal1

by the Duggar girls in their book "Growing Up Duggar" page 114 This doesn't mean we're to ignore the fact that God has created us to have a natural physical desire toward men. When these feelings arise, we thank God of making us 'normal.' Withing a godly marriage, this kind of desire can be a wonderful blessing that bonds the husband and wife together in the way God intended.

I still say the Pledge.  I still put my hand over my heart, and I still sing the National Anthem. I still love America. … [Read more...]
