by R.L. Stollar - Community Coordinator of Homeschoolers Anonymous cross posted from Homeschoolers AnonymousThe following excerpt is from HSLDA founder Michael Farris’s 1996 book How A Man Prepares His Daughters For Life. Farris has his patriarchal beliefs on full display in this book, including such passages as: “I am very supportive of the concept of the authority of fathers in their home…It’s important to be right…It is appropriate to simply say to your daughter, ‘Because I’m the dad, that’s why‘” (page 21); “a woman should be submissive to her husband” (page 96); and “husbands are ultimately responsible for family decisions” (page 101). … [Read More...]

There Is No Formula For Culture Shock

by Lana Hope cross posted from her blog Wide Open GroundI recently thought of this post, I wrote on Christmas Eve from my phone while with a few teenagers in Asia.

The Duggars “More Popular Than Jesus?”

by Suzanne Titkemeyer - NLQ AdminOkay, so the quoted part of the title was factually uttered by the Beatles John Lennon way back in 1966 and not by Jim Bob Duggar. Here's the entire John Lennon quote, posting it because in the context of the Duggars, Jesus and popularity it's interesting.

Clay Yarborough and the Evangelical Fear of Breasts

by Bruce Gerencser from his blog The Life and Times of Bruce Gerencser See the full sized image Bruce is writing about by clicking here. It's beautiful and not pornographic. Trigger warning for full female nudity. There is a smaller version in the story below. For those of us raised in the Evangelical/fundamentalist church, we are quite familiar with the fear preachers and church leaders have of exposed breasts and cleavage. Women are oft reminded to cover up, lest the weak, pathetic men of the church throw them down in the middle aisle of the church and ravage them. As the recent GRACE report on sexual abuse and rape at Bob Jones University reveals, women are viewed as temptresses out to b … [Read More...]
