Quoting Quiverfull: Hating Transexuals is Biblical?

Duggarmapa

Seems like Michelle Duggar has recorded a robo-call currently being used by the Family Council to oppose a pending anti-discrimination bill for Fayetteville, Arkansas. The bill's primary purpose is to deal with housing discrimination against transgendered persons in the community.Guess Ben Seewald isn't the only one in that family making hateful statements about a people group they don't bother to take the trouble to understand or learn about.From The Huffington Post - Michelle Duggar Records Transphobic Robocall Opposing Arkansas Anti-Discrimination Bill A transcription of the robocall by Michelle Duggar. … [Read more...]

Evangelicals Pontificate on the Suicide of Robin Williams

walsh

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Way Forward written on Tuesday August 12, 2014 “I don’t understand the whole fundamentalist thing; you see, I’m an Episcopal; that’s Catholic Light. Same religion, half the guilt!” –Robin Williams Why is it that Evangelicals think they need to pontificate any time someone of note dies? It seems, when it comes to people who have some sort of notoriety, that Evangelicals KNOW whether the dead person’s name is in the Book of Life. They seemingly have a gift from God that enables them to know who is and isn’t a Christian. Over the years, I have had to deal with countless Evangelicals that felt called by God to weigh in on whether I was ever a … [Read more...]

by Mel cross posted from her blog When Cows and Kids CollideBefore Tommy arrived, Susanna was already exhausted: "Get up half an hour earlier because Daniel will be working with his dad and grandpa all day.  Katie and Verity are still dry; take them to their potties right away.  Have Peter fill the humidifiers.  Need to eat.  Make sure to fit in phonics flashcards with the little boys and catch up on our history reading.  Sit down and breathe in the sweet scent of clean heads. Ask John Michael to do his “cleaning the glass” chore before the therapist gets here.  Ask Laura to write baby bath on the grocery list before I forget again.  Have Joshua scrub up some sweet potatoes and put them i … [Read more...]

musser1

by Mel cross posted from her blog When Cows and Kids CollideSixteen years ago, a baby was born in Bulgaria. At four months old, he was placed in an orphanage.   The orphanage young Tommy was placed at was hell on Earth.  The director "modified" the foods fed to the children to prevent them from growing normally.  By doing this, the director kept the children permanently in the youngest/weakest group of the orphanage where the orphanage received the most funds for the children.  Tommy was listed at age 15 as "Male child at 15 years of age, with the following diagnoses: Infantile Cerebral Palsy – Hypotonic form; Severe lagging behind in the physical and neuro-psychical development; Severe p … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: No Personal Agency For Women?

talkingback

by pastor Steve L. Anderson from the blog Ramblings of Sheldon Listening to women who talk back and argue with you is like experiencing Chinese water torture and Waterboarding. Given the choice, I’d rather experience Chinese Water Torture. Bonus material from The Friendly Atheist from that same sermon: You see all these celebrity women and music stars who are “independent” and “I can do it all myself” types! That is not who I want my children emulating, because “I don’t want them to think that is what a woman should strive to be. The Bible says a woman should strive to have a meek and quiet spirit…” … [Read more...]

Why the Church Needs Feminism

christianfeminism

by Kristen Rosser cross posted from her blog Wordgazer’s WordsToday I'm contributing to the Faith & Feminism synchroblog occurring this week, which"invite[s] feminists of all faiths to reflect with us on the interplay between feminist praxis and religious faith." Reading some of the amazing posts there, I'm mostly reminded of how little I know about oppression; how as a white, able-bodied, heterosexual, middle-class woman, I dabble at the edges of intersectional feminism, trying to open my eyes and ears to see and hear beyond my own privilege.But I'm learning.  Thanks to Sarah Bessey's wonderful book on the subject, I have already shared why I'm a Jesus Feminist despite the tendency i … [Read more...]

Homeschooling, Child Abuse Rates and the ‘Liberal Conspiracy’

invisiblechildren

by Heather Doney cross posted from her blog Becoming WorldlyHomeSince Michelle Goldberg’s Daily Beast article “The Sinister Side of Homeschooling” came out, there have been a number of people expressing support for what some of us homeschool grads are doing to raise awareness, but there have been others that have accused us of being part of some vast liberal conspiracy to force children into the public schools to be indoctrinated and too many people have crunched the numbers of deaths reported on Homeschooling’s Invisible Children and concluded that there are less children dying in homeschools than in the public schools so our conclusions about homeschooled children needing more protect … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Not Quiverfull?

quiverfull

by Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar from "A Love That Multiples" pages 92-93 We find it amusing how many reporters copy and past information they find about us that someone else has copied and pasted without checking the facts. For instance, even though wiki and some Internet blogs report that we are part of the Quiver Full movement, we are not. We are simply Bible-believing Christians who desire to follow God's Word and apply it to our lives. God says children are a gift and a blessing and we believe it! QUOTING QUIVERFULL is a regular feature of NLQ – we present the … [Read more...]
