True Love Doesn’t Wait

by Rosie Franklin cross posted from her blog Disrupting Dinner PartiesTrigger warning- Christian virginity/purity culture throughout (which is absolutely not sarcasm as a trigger warning). __________________Also, I told you not to read this, Mom._______________ I talked a bit Tuesday about how I lost my virginity, in my post on rape culture. I sort of mentioned but didn’t go into detail about the fact that the loss of my virginity was somewhat emotionally unmooring for me, in addition to the manner in which I “lost” it being awful. So today I’m going to talk about what I was taught about sex and virginity. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: A Christmas Word?

Don't know if Doug was referring to snarled parachutes, snarled yarn, snarling animals or what. Guessing he meant a parachute.

by Doug Wilson of Blog and Mablog - A Huge White Snarl Flapping Behind YouTrigger-warning! Doug is being very judgmental and hateful in his Christmas cyber altar call. So here it comes — a Christmas word to the faithless. I am using the word faithless in both senses. I am speaking to those who do not believe, and I am speaking to those who are being disobedient to what they actually do know (Rom. 1:19-20). Ultimately the two categories are only one, but I am speaking to those who are without faith and those trying to throw it away, wanting to pretend they never had it. … [Read more...]

Dialogue, Privilege, and the Homeschool Debate

pencils

by Heather Doney cross posted from her blog Becoming WorldlyEvents of late have got me thinking about a lot of things, including sex ed, my relationship to popular culture and society, and how advocacy groups work, among other things. It made me think in a broader sense about my life as well, where I came from and where I am going. I’ve traversed a lot of ground.

It is freeing. … [Read more...]

by R. J. Rushdooney from CRI - Christian Families on the Edge “All the basic governmental powers in society, save one, the death penalty, have been given [by God] to the family, not to the state nor to the church.…A mark of anti-Christianity is the move to strip the family of these powers.” … [Read more...]
