NLQ original image

From The Christian Science Monitor - Alecia Pennington can't prove she's an American - or that she even exists. What would you do?Editor's note: Be sure and read the entire article. Thankfully this terrible story is being picked up by the world's mainstream press as I've seen articles on Alecia Pennington's situation from press as far away as Australia. The total power many over-controlling homeschooling parents hold and exercise over their adult children is demeaning and disgraceful. It should be illegal to withhold identification documentation from an adult child. It is extremely abusive - Identification Abuse.  … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Misunderstanding ‘Patriarchy’?

quotingquiverfull

by Gabriel Hudelson of Thine is The Kingdom - Godzilla on PatriarchyEditor's note: This author is speaking on the HSLDA article published in August titled 'A Line in the Sand' and refuting some of it line by line. HSLDA wrote distancing itself from Doug Phillips, Bill Gothard and their definition of Patriarchy in an attempt to pretend to be different than Gothard and Phillips among other things. Is HSLDA being disingenuous or are they making real theological changes in how they view gender roles and submission of women? … [Read more...]

Screencap from Homeschoolers Anonymous

by R.L. Stollar Community Coordinator of Homeschoolers Anonymous. Article cross posted from Homeschoolers Anonymous James and Lisa Pennington responded today to their daughter Alecia’s allegations of identification abuse.

Not Quoting Quiverfull: Science Denial Has Real Consequences

Image NLQ original

by Adam Frank from NPR - Science Denialism Has ConsequencesEditor's note: In light of the recent measles outbreak due in no small part to people taking religious exemptions on childhood vaccinations (like Zsuzsanna Anderson and Debi Pearl among others) and even HSLDA's refusal to take sides in a public safety issue I think we should revisit the issue of  refusing to vaccinate your children for religious reasons. NPR has posted an excellent article on how denying proven science does have real life consequences for everyone. Since Evangelical and Fundamentalist Christianity seems to be the biggest practitioners of Science Denialism we're starting to see the consequences. Your thoughts? … [Read more...]

by Matt Walsh from The Matt Walsh Blog - So Should We Just Round Up The Anti-Vaccine Parents And Ship Them To Guantanamo? (Don't be afraid to click on the link as we always use 'Do Not Link' on Matt's blog, but be prepared for a huge number of pop up ads.)Editor's note: Since the exposure of unvaccinated children and adults at Disneyland to someone with an active case of measles leading to a spreading outbreak of a disease thought to be eradicated years ago there's been much talk of isolating those without the vaccination.  Many physicians offices, schools and other public places are starting to ban the unvaccinated. The Anti-Vaxxer movement is firmly entrenched in the world of QF and E … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Treating Children Like Burdens?

quotingquiverfull

by Carrie Anne Hudson from Rescued Remnant - Raising or Resenting Our ChildrenEditor's note: Found this particular blog through one of the crowd funded adoption blogs. This woman is a missionary in China along with her family and likes to post things poking at things in American culture she doesn't like disguised as Christian thought. Here she's claiming that there are large numbers of parents that treat their children as if they are burdens instead of valuable members of the family. While I'm sure there are some out in the world that do treat their children like burdens and are resentful it doesn't seem to be huge numbers of folks acting like this out in public, no matter what belief … [Read more...]
