Quoting Quiverfull: Lori Alexander Thinks Education Makes For Bad Mothers?

by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife – Lack of Education Makes Bad Mothers? Editor’s note: More evidence that Lori is out of original ideas or material – citing Duggar news and going off on those that comment upon it.

by Doug Wilson from Blog and Mablog – Real Offense and Not so Much Editor’s note: This guy is word-salading around to defend his attempts to offender others. Early in the piece he says this: “Now I know perfectly well that men and women both commit this sin, and when you use an example you have to pick one. And whenever it occurs to me, I try to pick the one that I know will result in offense.” Instead of… Read more

by Kevin Swanson from his radio show Generations as quoted by Raw Story Editor’s note: First part in today’s Hurricane Irma round up of the usual suspects claiming hurricanes are punishment for sin.
