Quoting Quiverfull: Unmarried Stay Poor?

prenuptial-agreements-620x412

Ladies Against Feminism has republished a piece from the Mercador by Nicole King called Marriage linked to income increase. If I'm reading this right it sounds like LAF and the original author are saying that a) get married to the first living breathing man with prospects or education to avoid poverty and b) dooming non-white women to poverty by the statistics used by the Pew Research Center and the New York Times.

by Ellen cross posted from her blog When Church HurtsFor a few years, I had the privilege of serving in my church in several ways.

When Church Hurts Part 4

blacksheep

by Ellen cross posted from her blog When Church HurtsDuring all of these years, I would come to church, sit four or five rows from the pulpit, right on the center aisle, and listen to Elliot and others preach grace, forgiveness, reconciliation, and restoration. Elliot preached and preached. I wept and wept openly. I could not sing. I could not so much as close my eyes in prayer. I could not stand for the blessing at the end of the service. I knew that no matter how much Elliot preached those words to everyone else in the congregation, they were not for me. And I would email him and tell him as much. Without response. … [Read more...]
