by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - LaughingEditor's note: Sorry Michael, the only laughing going on are in those of us that see just how unsuccessful your children really are, that know about the way they live, the lives of grinding poverty and make do.

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 1 – Delusions of Spanking?

quotingquiverfull

by Michael Pearl of No Greater Joy - LaughingEditor's note: This was written back when the deaths of Hana Grace Williams and Lydia Shatz were all over the news with  news media speculating of the links between Michael Pearl's book 'To Train Up A Child' and a pile of dead children. Michael is attempting to justify his method of child beating as a legitimate way to raise children instead of the law-breaking child abuse it actually is. Dream on, Michael, because I'm seeing almost no children raised in extreme Christianity such as yours becoming anything beyond a manual laborer or the chronically under employed. Doctors? Lawyers? Psychiatric workers? I need a legitimate citation of his … [Read more...]

John Piper Wants to Go to Prison: An Argument For Hitting a Child

JoeSands

by Joe Sands cross posted from his blog Incongruous CircumspectionOriginally posted June 2011John Piper is a very odd man. He is old and has many a follower that will stick up for him when there is even a tiny whisper of dissent. He tends to say some incendiary things, and then grandstands when the ridicule comes shooting in, waving it off as being persecuted for the truth. But in many cases, the truth for John Piper is a relativistic sort of thing. He sees many things in life as being very dichotomous - black vs. white, having no color. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Michael Pearl Thinks Political Correctness Is Killing Child Abuse Disguised As Dicipline?

quotingquiverfull

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy magazine - Two-Front War on ChristiansEditor's note: Skipped large parts of this article because it's Michael Pearl attacking Hillary Clinton, the Supreme Court and marriage equality mixed with quoting all the self-professed Evangelical Republican presidential candidates to prove Pearl's points. Focusing on the part where Michael bemoans that people consider corporal punishment as a parenting tactic that has gone the way of the dinosaurs. Funny how he tries to link the falling out of favor of his book with a liberal agenda and the loss of Biblical standards nationwide. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 3 – Children Are Foolish?

quotingquiverfull

by Debi Pearl from No Greater Joy - Foolishness or WisdomEditor's note: Here Debi ignores the fact that not properly feeding kids is child abuse, neglect and setting them up for a lifetime of struggling with eating disorders. She thinks it teaches children to be deceitful, which is considered so much worse than the fact that the parents are legally abusing and neglecting the child. Parents with obese children get blamed too. Debi lots to throw shade at everyone before reverting to the Pearl cure-all, a whipping with 1/4 plastic plumbing line, the same implement of torture that has played a role in the deaths of Lydia Schatz and Hana Grace Williams.ETA 3:30 pm - Whoever it is that … [Read more...]

Child Abuse or Child Discipline?

Watchtheshepherd

by Virginia Knowles cross posted from her blog Watch The Shepherd(Editor's note: This was originally posted February 2010 when Lydia Schatz was murdered by her adoptive parents. It's worth a read because Michael and Debi Pearl, authors of the book followed by the Schatz's "To Train Up A Child" and indirectly responsible for her death, are still preaching their dangerous message of child abuse.)Dear friends,Please permit me a rant. You need to read this.On February 6, seven year old Lydia Schatz, adopted from Liberia, was murdered. Her 11 year old sister Zariah is in critical condition with severe kidney damage. Who did it? Their deeply religious (I can’t bring myself to say C … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Great Reward Earned by Disciplining Children?

quotingquiverfull

by Shalom Pearl Brand from No Greater Joy - Great RewardEditor's note: You know what Shalom is referring to when she uses the word 'mold' when she's talking about training her children? It's a more polite way to refer to using physical force to compel obedience, breaking their spirits. It was done to her and now she's doing it to her children, the cycle of abuse continues, albeit nicely worded now. Giving ugly things newer safer-sounding names doesn't make them any less awful. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 5 Michael Pearl Answers Critics of “To Train Up A Child”

quotingquiverfull

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - It's The Book's FaultEditor's note: And so it ends, with junk science saying that we're all making it worse by eating fat and sugar AND for guilt bonus points, watching television. None of those three things causes the chronic fatigue Michael references. You know what does? Being driven like a mule with a cruel master to do everything, do it fast and do it immediately with no down time, sort of like that honeymoon from hell he put his wife through. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 3 – Anger in Children is Purely Selfishness?

quotingquiverfull

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - Angry ChildrenEditor's note: Now Mike tries to say that if you teach your children all sorts of things to do that they'll not be frustrated and angry. He is claiming that competency eliminates anger. Plus expose them to the notion that life isn't fair and you have to control yourself. If only it was truly that simple. … [Read more...]
