It’s Not That Complicated: Part 2 Chapter 4

by Mel cross posted from her blog When Cows and Kids CollideAll quoted sections of the book are in blueThis book does have some fun side-effects.  My sister-in-law offered to lend me any and all books from her house to stop me from continuing to read this book.  The offer was tempting, but inflicting this book on my family is sweet.  (Reading chunks aloud....it's a twisted pleasure for me.) Well, we get a glimpse into the teenage Botkin sisters. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: No Flirting But Attract Him With Old Fashioned Way Rules?

by Lisa Hallahan from A Lovely Calling - Being Outgoing With Guys Without Being A FlirtEditor's Note: Some of these ideas aren't bad but seriously, some of this is just really ridiculous like 'Don't laugh loudly' or 'Don't overdo your makeup' yet you are being told to 'Be unique'. How about just simply being yourself. It's not a game or a competition. Like much of fundamentalism this makes what should be simple and natural into something difficult and imbued with odd meaning. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Bringing Shame To All Christians?

by Zsuzsanna Anderson from her blog Are They All Yours? - My Thoughts on the DuggarsEditor's note: In conculsion Zsu jumps around all over the place, first claiming it might not be too late for Josh, expressing sorrow for the victims before saying that the Duggars should never have been television-chasing, fame-whoring people that would do anything for ratings with this many sorry skeletons in their metaphorical closets. But... how does this shame all Christians?- Yet with all that being said, and I know I will draw immense hate for this from the trolls on this site, I am not convinced beyond any doubt that Josh Duggar himself had reached that point of being a reprobate pedophile … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Without Execution Victims Cannot Recover?

by Zsuzsanna Anderson from her blog Are They All Yours?Editor's note: Everyone's favorite Holocaust denier (check out her latest posting claiming the Holocaust never happened) argues that you cannot begin to recover from sexual abuse if the abuser isn't properly punished via something like execution and without God. She's making some pretty big assertions there for someone with no experience in the field of recovery. She also seems to think that repentance of sins is not enough to be 'saved'. What type of gospel is being preached at Faithful Word Baptist Church in Tempe?  Tomorrow the conclusion of Zsuzsanna's thoughts on crime, punishment and the Duggars.- Not all who are abused … [Read more...]

by Mel cross posted from her blog When Cows and Kids CollideDebi's mind works in strange, strange ways. SpidersBefore Patricia's flea story, I want to tell you one of my own insect nightmares.  Years ago I got mad at my neighbor for being offensive to her husband.  I stewed, fumed, and even fussed about it to some friends.  I knew I was acting ugly, but I kept my grudge.
