Feeling Empathy for Christian Patriarchy Parents & Leaders

forgiveness

by Heather Doney cross posted from her blog Becoming WorldlyI did a couple things I never expected to do yesterday. I had a thought-provoking conversation that left me thinking about how it is easy to decide that someone is an enemy, a jerk, a selfish person. It is easy to determine that people are unworthy, undeserving, maybe even unclean. It is easy for them to decide that about you too. … [Read more...]

ALTM: Chapter 2 – Babies, Babies, BABIES!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I had the hardest time reading chapter two and writing about it. Every time I tried to read I was triggered and sickened, preferring to hide under the covers of my nice warm bed and eat popcorn instead of reading and writing.As always the Duggars started this chapter with a Bible verse. Luckily this time they actually had the correct verse number - “God blessed them and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply.” - Genesis 1: 28. But I have to wonder why they lopped off the backside of 1:28, you know, all that jazz about filling and subduing the earth and its critters. … [Read more...]

In Fundie Land Name Calling is Fair Game

Replace "Christians" with "Fundie" and it illustrates Lana Hope's point perfectly

 by Lana Hope cross posted from her blog Wide Open GroundSome days -so much of the freakin time – fundies don’t give back any substantial rebuttal or feedback to arguments that have been addressed specially at them. For example, a while back, Libby Anne addressed how the leading homeschool legal defense group in America, HSLDA, had called a child abuser a hero. That’s a substantial claim that would deserve a good answer.But fundies don’t usually give back any sort of substantial argument.

Quoting Quiverfull: Suffering Suffering?

Quotes1-300x250 (2)

From the new book by Tim Keller that John Piper of Desiring God and pals are promoting - Walking Through Pain and Suffering “Some suffering is given in order to chastise and correct a person for wrongful patterns of life (as in the case of Jonah imperiled by the storm), some suffering is given not to correct past wrongs but to prevent future ones (as in the case of Joseph sold into slavery), and some suffering has no purpose other than to lead a person to love God more ardently for himself alone and so discover the ultimate peace and freedom.” Comments open belowQUOTING QUIVERFULL is a regular feature of NLQ – we present the actual words of noted Quiverfull leaders and ask our readers: … [Read more...]

“Farris Logic:” An Extra Snarky Response to The WaPo Homeschool Story

beach

by Heather Doney cross posted from her blog Becoming WorldlyNote: I meant to post this post a while ago but didn’t (thinking I might dial down the snark), so it’s a slight bit out of date, still full of snark, and I think still relevant. Also, Becoming Worldly got linked in this post on how Long Lives Made Humans Human at Slate magazine today (Yay! So cool!) so I figured since the link was directly about fundamentalist homeschooling that I’d put up something I was sure was on topic for curious Slate link-clickers to see. So thanks for stopping by, Slate readers! … [Read more...]
