Facing Our Fears: How the Voices of Homeschooling Alumni Can Help Homeschooling

facing-our-fears-cover

This is the presentation that Homeschoolers Anonymous and HARO's R. L. Stollar would have given had he been allowed to participate in the 2014 Great Homeschool Convention that took place in Ontario, California. Too bad GHC bowed to fear and pressure from within the homeschooling movement and rescinded their permission for Stollar to participate in the conference. It is a powerful presentation and would have been helpful to those at the conference to hear. From the Homeschoolers Anonymous site:by R.L. StollarFacing Our Fears: How the Voices of Homeschool Alumni Can Help Homeschooling was originally prepared by R.L. Stollar, Executive Director ofHomeschool Alumni Reaching Out(HARO) for … [Read more...]

Born Secondary

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...]

“Men Need Respect, Women Need Love” – Really?

loverespect

by Kristen Rosser cross posted from her blog Wordgazer's WordsAn anonymous commenter on my last blog post told me this: God, in His wisdom, made man the head of the union between man and his wife. He has created a desire in the woman to be loved, and in the man to be respected, and there is no amount of social re-engineering that can change that. This seems to me to be a good opportunity to address the whole love-vs-respect idea that most male-headship proponents espouse.  Where does this idea come from, that God made women to need love more than respect, and men to need respect more than love-- and that this is a basis for belief in male headship?The chief source of this idea … [Read more...]

by Suzanne TitkemeyerMore Duggars in the media this week. Both Jill Duggar Dillard and Jessa Duggar are on the cover of US Weekly and they're talking about the expectations of their father carrying over into their entire lives. Very ridiculous rules considering his adult children are just that, adults, capable of making their own rules and knowing their own minds.So what are these rules? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Backpedaling Furiously From Vision Forum?

Crossing the line in the sand to build insane sand castles

Quoted from Jennifer McBride's blog Noble Womanhood - The Truth, The Whole Truth and Nothing But The Truth: A Follow Up Response to Michael FarrisI know the news of HSLDA distancing its self from patriarchy is old news at this point, but this is one of the few blogs I've seen in the Quiverfull/Evangelical/Patriarchy sphere that has spoken out against Farris. Jennifer is quoting Michael Farris of HSLDA from his statement distancing HSLDA from patriarchy and Vision Forum. I would recommend reading her entire posting as she seems to be very bent out of shape that Farris dared to deviate from the Vision Forum stance on the place of women. Wonder how many 'True Christians'(tm) are cancelling … [Read more...]

Reposted from Homeschoolers Anonymous HA note: Kathi is a Bible-belt midwest transplant to the beautiful Pacific northwest. After homeschooling her kids for 10 years (she decided that high school math and science were not her strongest subjects), both kids are in public school. She is a former church goer and finds herself in that unstudied demographic of middle-aged Nones. She has a B.A. in Urban Ministry and a M.S.W. Her goal is to work with children who have been abused or are in foster care. She loves to knit, cook and read (not in any particular order). The following was originally published on Kathi’s blog Moving Beyond Absolutes on April 5, 2014 and is reprinted with permission.  I h … [Read more...]

michellejimbob

by Suzanne Titkemeyer cross posted from her blog True Love Doesn't RapeWe've written and posted too many times here at NLQ about TLC's Duggar family, the stars of "19 Kids & Counting".  You can almost tell how well or not so well the show is doing in the ratings and when the premiere of the new season is by the flood of Duggar family related news/gossip that floods the internet. 'The Duggars stop for bagels!' or 'The Duggar Family says all drag queens need Jesus!' Ridiculous minutia everywhere to keep people talking about the show and the Duggars so all that sweet, sweet cash will keep coming on in like manna to TLC and the Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar compound.Last season there … [Read more...]
