by Ellen cross posted from her blog When Church Hurts Editor’s note: Posting this in light of yesterday being Super Tuesday and the increasingly serious political season. Ellen’s explanation of the Iowa caucus is interesting. Watching the Quiverfull Evangelicals try to figure out who to vote for is even more interesting. Nancy Campbell is heavily pushing Ted Cruz, while others are lining up behind Donald Trump, so it’s anyone’s race in the world of Christianity. (more…) Read more

by Anonymous editor over at Ladies Against Feminism – Capturing Weak Women and Weak Men Editor’s note: Oh boy! They call those that do not embrace their views ‘weak’. Why is there always so much insensitive name-calling that goes hand-in-hand with fear mongering in the Quiverfull world? (more…) Read more

by Aletha cross posted from her blog Yllom Mormon p 153-154 Today we are continuing Michael’s extended-and extended-sermon on what he dubs “washing of the word”. I interpret this to mean “Telling your wife what to fix to make her what you want”, but I’m a cynic. Let’s see what Michael has for us today! Text is in purple (more…) Read more

by Janie B. Cheaney at World magazine and as quoted by Ladies Against Feminism – Upside-Down Headship Editor’s note: Let the records show that once in a century or two the ladies at LAF don’t immediately go for the sickest most dysfunctional take on all things purported to be Biblical. But starting with the victim-blaming sort of almost cancels out the good in this bit on how men aren’t supposed to be petty tyrants because Bible. The original author finished… Read more

by Cindy Kunsman cross posted from her blog Under Much Grace All images by Cindy Kunsman used with permission from Under Much Grace A previous post noted that problems like a sense of helplessness, shame, guilt, problems with trust, issues with boundaries, and bad dynamics send us into counseling to find help so that we can better manage our lives. In many respects, all people experience these kinds of feelings and struggles, but those who suffered trauma need more help…. Read more

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies – Going…Going…GONE Editor’s  note: More fear-mongering that you’re not doing enough or doing it right enough to go to heaven. She uses the story of the ten girls with the oil lamps waiting for the bridegroom to drive home her notion that once saved is just not enough. Keep striving to be the bestest best or miss the boat. Not sure that’s very Biblical. Not only do you have to be topper most uber… Read more

by Mel cross posted from her blog When Cows and Kids Collide Quoted parts of the book in blue In this book, the term “statism” or “statist” receives a lot of play.  The problem is that I could not figure out what the Botkins actually meant by either term. According to Wikipedia, statism is the involvement of the government in economic or social policy in some form.  This roughly corresponded with what I remember hazily from some poli-sci discussions held… Read more

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies – Big Loving Hearts Editor’s note: So this does not exactly answer the question as to what happened to Nancy’s adoptees, or the ones that her her Serene Allison had disappear.
