by Nathaniel Darnell from Persevero News - Of Men and Megalomanics(It must be noted that Nathaniel Darnell also worked at Vision Forum for some years with Doug Phillips.

by R. L. Stollar cross posted from Homeschoolers Anonymous(Editor's note: Swanson is now calling "Christian Patriarchy" by the buzz words "Father-Centric Family" and other different things because he's still distancing himself from Doug Phillips and Doug's sexual abuse of young women under the title of "Christian Patriarchy" No matter how you slice it or what you call this movement it is the same thing)WORLD Magazine, a biweekly conservative Christian news magazine, was and continues to be immensely popular among homeschooling families.

patriarchymeaning

Another prominent Biblical Patriarchal leader denouncing the word.by  James McDonald of  Family Reformation Magazine and the Providence Church - The "P" Word And, so it is with the “P” word; the word we know as patriarchy. In our day, patriarchy is quickly becoming a pejorative. It has come to mean, “selfish, overbearing tyrant who seeks to dominate and suppress women and children.” And, let’s be clear, there are those who embrace that term and fit the bill. They have behaved as if the world revolves around them and that women and children exist only to serve them. … [Read more...]
