by Marjorie Holsten from The Raw Story - Homeschooling Expert: Sex Ed is a Liberal Plot Make Kids Watch Guinea Pigs do it Instead “People say to me, why would they teach such awful things to our children?” she remarked. “If you go deep down and you connect those dots, you see that when children are desensitized to sexual things, that affects their ability at a later date to bond with a spouse.” … [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 … [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...]

Teaching Our Kids Religion

bridgebuilding

by Lana Hope cross posted from her blog Wide Open Ground In a post the other day, I mentioned that homeschoolers tend to be sheltered from secular ideas – to the extent that homeschool students are often not allowed to disagree with their parents or formulate their own opinions. The post lacked clarity in several areas. I am a graduate student and have been writing extensive term papers this month. So I rushed the post. Quite frankly, if I turned in a paper as undeveloped and unclear as that post, I’d get a bad grade. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Without Perfect Adherence to Michael Pearl’s Principles Homeschooling Will Fail?

successfailure

by Michael Pearl at No Greater Joy - Homeschooling: Success and Failure Not every homeschool experience will be a great success. Some will be total failures; others will be good but not altogether good. In some cases, out of six children a family may lose one or two to the world, but they will have two or three that are exceptional human beings. The Devil is after us. The flesh is still weak. The world has not lost its luster. So there will be casualties. We are saddened by every failure, but we are not daunted or discouraged. The large number of beautiful successes keeps us charging ahead with confidence. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Put Sex Ed Back In The Home, Not The School

abstinence

by an unidentified someone at Ladies Against Feminism as "Putting Sex Back in  Sex Education, Home Education" after author read a Camille Paglia article about fixing sex ed in the public schools originally published in Time Magazine. The great comedy of this all is that the LAF gals have agreed with the ideas of a *gasp!* lesbian! Correct me if I'm wrong but doesn't LAF rant against homosexuality in all its forms usually? Most confused here. What Camille actually said: … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: College Just Extended Adolescense?

blutto

by Ladies Against Feminism - Family Economics: Why I Hated College Everyone seems to have a college degree, but no one seems to use it.  We graduate from college ramping up scores of allegedly useful facts and critical thinking skills that ultimately teach us only how to do what we probably could have done already. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Nation Building?

Napoleon, a Nation-Builder but not quite what Nancy Campbell has in mind

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - You Are a Nation Builder Mother, you are a nation builder. You build and strengthen the nation as you embrace motherhood. It is mothers who determine the destiny of the nation. When mothers vacate the home and childbearing the nation weakens. When mothers come back to the home with a vision to raise godly children they strengthen the nation. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Unrighteous Education?

hedwig

by Colin Campbell of Meat For Men Men, sending our children to be educated by the unrighteous should cause us serious concern. Not only are (sic-missing word) subjected to the liberal agenda which is pro-abortion, pro-homosexual, anti-Christian values, and out-lawing prayer and the Bible, but many of their classmates are from homes that have broken morals and are drug infected. … [Read more...]
