Close-up of birth control pills in two plastic tablet dispenser cases

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating The DragonsOn Monday, Rachel Held Evans ran “Why I Use Birth Control,” which featured my story with ten other women. What I wrote for her focused on the fact that I use the NuvaRing to manage my PCOS/endo and painful periods. I focused on that part of my story for a few reasons; first, it’s the only reason I’ve really had to use the NuvaRing up until recently, and second because the time in my life when I couldn’t afford it and had a cyst rupture was extremely relevant to what’s happening with the Hobby Lobby decision. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Daughters Intimidating Suitors?

Pink

by Jenn Wilkin at her blog the beginning of wisdom - on daughters and dating: how to intimidate suitorsHere’s the problem with shotgun jokes and applications posted on the fridge: to anyone paying attention, they announce that you fully expect your daughter to have poor judgment. Be assured that your daughter is paying attention.  And don’t be shocked if she meets your expectation. You might want to worry less about terrorizing or retro-fitting prospective suitors and worry more about preparing your daughter to choose wisely. And that means building a wall.Instead of intimidating all your daughter’s potential suitors, raise a daughter who intimidates them just fine on her own. Because … [Read more...]

Preparing To Be A Help Meet: The Priest Part 1by Mel cross posted from her blog When Cows and Kids CollideI like this chapter - especially compared to the Visionary Man chapter and the King chapter.  The Priest/Steady Man seems to be a nice, calm, down-to-earth kind of guy.Most of the chapter focuses on explaining additional negatives about being married to a Prophet or King because if you are reading her book you should be preparing for marriage to a lunatic.  You have been warned. … [Read more...]

mormon apron

by Steven L. Anderson pastor of Faithful Word Baptist Church from his personal blog - Satanic Rituals of the Mormons Exposed They also place themselves under the curse of Lucifer at other times in the ceremony by making covenants promising not to commit various sins. Then Lucifer makes it clear that if they do not live up to every covenant they make in the Temple that day, they will be under his power (42:52-43:05). Since everyone is going to sin at some point, they are obviously going to be under the power of Lucifer according to this ceremony. One of the things they promise not to do is "laugh loudly." (50:07-50:17) What in the world?! A Mormon was at my house recently and laughed loudly, … [Read more...]

Christian Reconstruction, ATI, Abuse, Submission: Modesty and Lust Part 9

Wyatt Earp

by SJ Reidhead cross posted from her blog The Pink FlamingoThis is (I promise) the last of the series on modesty, cowboys, and clothing.I was only planning one part to the piece on modesty and lust.  A funny thing happened along the way.  The letter I wrote, about the condemnation of fashion, and costume started it all.  Many thanks to Suzanne Calulu at No Longer Quivering for picking up the tawdry tale.  It’s also a way to get to use my favorite photo of Wyatt Earp.But – what truly sent me over the edge was the rant about cowboys. There are times when we end up in the right time and place in this world. As a Christian, I happen to think this is divine guidance. Let’s put it this … [Read more...]

by Zsuzanna Anderson, wife of Steven L. Anderson pastor of Faithful Word Baptist Church  - from Zsuzanna's blog Are They All Yours? - Home Birth Haters Question From a Reader: With all of the complications you have had in this pregnancy, why on earth would you ever consider a home birth? Why in the world would you risk your baby's health and perhaps even his life? If you were so willing to allow extensive interventions during pregnancy, I just can't understand why you would risk everything at the end? I'm not trying to be critical, I'm just completely baffled. I've heard one too many stories (one of which happened to someone close to me) of babies dying because of the lack of adequate care … [Read more...]
