Quoting Quiverfull: Voddie Baucham Thinks Marriage is More Important Than Education?

Quoting

by Voddie Baucham from his 'Child Training' sermon at Hardin Baptist Church bravely transcribed by R.L. Stollar from Homeschoolers AnonymousEditor's notes: Apparently Mr. Baucham does not consider parents behaving in a responsible way and modeling a good marriage in front of their children to be any sort of preparation for marriage. Which is sad, because no matter how much you lecture, hector or try to teach someone any concept sometimes the best way of all is to simply be an example. Where did this concept in Fundigelicalism that higher education for your child is wrong come from? … [Read more...]

Ophelia Benson of The Free Thinker has written an awesome take down of the blog post we shared a small part of recently by Karl Heitman. You remember Karl? He's the pastor that said he would not allow his daughter to go to college if her motives were not right.  Here is what Ophelia had to say about Heitman's upset at the idea of women being educated like men are: What he means, of course, is that the idea that girls and women are human beings just as boys and men are, and should have access to education just as boys and men do, has infiltrated the Christian culture so thoroughly that even Christians are shocked that he plans to prevent his daughter from getting an education. There's a n … [Read more...]

Apostate: Jean-Jacques Rousseau – Chapter 6

rousseau

by Lana Hope cross posted from her blog Wide Open Ground In today’s review, I will discuss chapter 6 of Kevin Swanson’s book Apostate. In this chapter, Kevin Swanson intensely unravels his special dislike for Rousseau, more so than any of the other “apostates” discussed in the previous chapters.  In part, I understand. Rousseau was not a man of integrity and honor. As Swanson discusses, Rousseau abandoned his children at an orphanage, in order to devote himself to his work, and he cheated on his lifelong partner. Certainly I share concerns that Rousseau never raised his children, and even greater concerns for the part of Rousseau’s life that Swanson does not narrate (for example: Rousseau t … [Read more...]

Apostate: Rene Decartes – Chapter 4

decartes

by Lana Hope cross posted from her blog Wide Open Ground  I am reviewing Kevin Swanson’s book Apostate, chapter-by-chapter. So far here are the reviews I have written: Preface Chapter 1 and 2 Thomas Aquinas (Chapter 3) Since I have not written any reviews in a while, I thought I would recap why I am writing these reviews. Then I will go on to review chapter 4. Apostate outlines what Kevin Swanson calls the demise of the Christian west. In particular, the book focuses on men, philosophers and other intellects, who Swanson claims broke down the Christian faith and morality and left us with tolerating gay people and voting for liberals. Here’s his latest trailer on his book that will give … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Marriage is More Important Than College or Discovering Who You Are?

hera

by Kelly Crawford posted both at Ladies Against Feminism and her blog Generation Cedar - 5 Things People Think About Marriage and Growing Up That Are Wrong College and becoming who you want to be and discovering yourself and your career should be much more important than getting married and tying yourself down to a commitment when the discovery of yourself has not yet been found. College is a time for individuals to discover themselves and find their paths in life. Marriage would greatly inhibit this. You cannot grow with another person until you fully know yourself. I am doubtful that anyone ranging from the ages 18-23 has fully found themselves yet. (Comment left here on the blog.) … [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...]
