Quoting Quiverfull: Birth Control Pills Kill Babies?

quotingquiverfull

by Steven L. Anderson from Faithful Word Baptist Church - Why Birth Control is WrongEditor's note: I don't know if I should laugh or be jaw-dropped over the fact that Anderson clearly has no real scientific idea how birth control pills actually work. They don't 'kill babies', the ones on the market now prevent the egg from ever leaving the ovary so that there cannot even be a fertilized egg must less a baby. The older pills prevented implantation of fertilized eggs. But an egg is not a baby, a long way from it. We've moved past that. Too bad his science knowledge has not. … [Read more...]

Doodling on my Starbucks Red cup

Trusting Birth – Another View of Duggar Home Birthing?

Dr. Amy Tuteur is at it again. This time she's explaining in a blog post all the things that could have caused the type of bleeding that sent Jessa Duggar Seewald to the hospital post home birth. She also has an interesting view of the birth stories of other Duggar women that ended up in the hospital. Birthing odds of 200 years ago would have surely killed not only Jessa, Jill and Israel, but likely Michelle Duggar too. Josh was a forceps baby and her twins, Jana and John David were born by cesarean after Michelle developed preeclampsia. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: No Birth Control Leads To Growing Instead Of Crisis Management?

quotingquiverfull

by Zsuzsanna Anderson from her blog Are They All Yours?Editor's note: The great comedy of this bit by Zsu is that in a previous entry she was complaining that church nursery was dangerous to children because of the adult to child ratio. Yet here she is saying that passing on the tradition of no birth control teaches you to grow from being stretched to your limits. So which is it? There must be so many children to adult for safety or not? She also was claiming that a nursery at a former church she attended was responsible for the deaths of  babies in the nursery. Surely if an alarming number of babies were dying at a certain church's nursery wouldn't we hear about that in the news? Would … [Read more...]

Jessa Duggar Seewald Birth Drama

news

Because People magazine has an exclusive on the birth of Jessa Duggar Seewald's baby boy there's not been a lot of information available. TMZ just published a report that Jessa tried to have a home birth but something didn't go right and she was taken from the Duggar compound to a local hospital.  That baby boy weighed an impressive 9 pounds 11 ounces and was over 21 inches long. Might be that he was just too big to come naturally at home. That is a huge first baby! … [Read more...]

What Ken Ham Thinks The Atheist Agenda Is

Screencap of Ken Ham and Bill Nye debate from Tumblr

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from The Life and Times of Bruce GerencserEditor's note: Since we sometimes talk about Quiverfull Homeschooling and Ken Ham is followed and praised by many in the homeschooling communities we need to look at his science-denying/Christian persecution beliefs. All you have to do it look at some of the presidential candidates and see that science-denial like Ham practices is rampant in all levels of society. Bruce is talking from the perspective of someone that has left fundamentalist Christianity, specifically he left Independent Fundamentalist Baptist religion and theology far behind. Please keep this in mind while reading his rebuttal of Ham. If you … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Daycare Has Caused All of Society’s Ills?

quotingquiverfull

by Kevin Swanson as quoted by Raw Story - Kevin Swanson Worries Day Care Will Turn Kids GayEditor's note: Kevin has blamed all sorts of things for turning children gay: Girl Scout Cookies, the Disney movie "Frozen", the children's movie "How To Train Your Dragon" and more. Now he's blaming that and many other things he doesn't agree with on putting children in daycare? I think it sounds like he should be a daycare because no real life genuine adult could possibly be as childish and tantrum-throwing toddler-like. … [Read more...]

Another thing about Central America. Even El Salvador has five Walmart Super Centers and 92 Walmart retail locations. Along with McDonalds, Burger King, KFC, Popeyes, you name it. This is the Walmart in San Jose, Costa Rica right across the hwy from the airport. Image by Suzanne Titkemeyer
