Quoting Quiverfull: Part 28 – Homeschoolers Embracing The World

quotingquiverfull

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - Jumping Ship Part 5Editor's note: Pushing through to get past this last chapter in Jumping Ship from the No Greater Joy Magazine. I can see we're heading into the parental blaming and shaming seas. Please put on your life jackets and grab a barf bag. He's telling the parents to shut the heck up, which isn't the worst advice. I've always found that when there is a heated conflict with another sometimes stopping saying anything and listening to the other side is the best way to proceed. At least it usually defuses the anger of the other side enough to spark rational conversation. At the same time it is pretty funny to see Michael Pearl, Mr. Command … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Public Schools Filled With Mega Sin?

quotingquiverfull

by Voddie Baucham from Exodus Mandate - 5 Reasons NOT to Sent Your Kids Back to Public SchoolEditor's note: Many of Voddie's other four reasons are just as filled with blaming and scare tactics as this bit. But the claims of 'brutal beatings' seems to be something that is more associated with homeschooling done the Michael Pearl 'To Train Up A Child' way than at any public school. Homeschooling is also rife with abuse, a fact that Voddie seems not to realize. At least at public school teachers are mandatory reporters of abuse, unlike homeschool, where abuse gets hidden or denied until there's a dead body. Oh and I am so hoping Voddie decides not to pay  his taxes, as he seems to indicate … [Read more...]

It’s Not Just The Duggars

Permissiontolivemelissa

by Melissa cross posted from her blog Permission To LiveThis post has been a long time coming, and with the Duggar scandal all over the news, its been on my mind again. First off, let me say that what Josh Duggar did was wrong, and how the media has handled this story has been pretty awful too. Tabloids have been flippant about sharing police documents with the victims names on them, and since the Duggar family has been very vocally against LGBTQ people who they claim are child-molesters, there are a lot of people eager to point out the hypocrisy of covering up the deeds of a child molester in their midst. I think there is plenty out there on what happened, and how it was “handled”, I wan … [Read more...]

News – Race, Homeschooling and Domestic Terrorism

This first news isn't precisely Quiverfull or Fundamentalist Christian related but it is awful. A young man by the name of Dylann Roof is a suspect in the shooting deaths of nine people in a prayer meeting in Charleston, South Carolina. This took place at a historic African American church that has been a cornerstone of the community since 1816. Our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone affected by this senseless killing spree.More from CNN - Charleston church shooting: '9 killed because they were black,' official says … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 2 – Sodom and Gomorrah Are In Your Families?

quotingquiverfull

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy Magazine - This Is the Last Righteous GenerationEditor's note: And Michael went exactly in the direction I thought he might, blaming the internet for killing righteousness in families. Does he not know that pornography was available pre-internet? Granted, it wasn't as easy to access but it was there. This letter sounds like another of the letters Debi uses in her books, written in outdated Victorianisms. If they are having to make up these letters to make points in their various publications I have to wonder what the real letters they receive entail? All that silly linguistic tap-dancing just to avoid saying the word "Masturbation". Though I have to … [Read more...]

News: HSLDA’s Newest Defense Case – The Naugler Family

news

Initially wasn't going to post about Kentucky CPS seizing all ten children in the Naugler family since it's been well covered at both Homeschoolers Anonymous and in great depth by Kathryn Brightbill. But.. more and  more comes out each day on this family. The Naugler parents are claiming that they've been targeted by CPS because they practice 'Free Range Parenting' and are 'Unschooling' the children, but that doesn't seem to be why CPS acted. Stories are emerging about things like piles of garbage, human feces and glass being rife on the homestead as well as the photos of the family home, basically a tent top with three stick walls they've lived in even in the cold of winter. Failure to … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: How Not Voting Is Actually Voting?

quotingquiverfull

by Zsuzsanna Anderson from Are They All Yours?!?! - Okay, I VotedEditor's note: This is Pastor Steven L. Anderson's wife's response to another piece quoted here where she explained all the reasons why women should not vote. She got push back on that issue from her own group of supporters. Here's how she claims she votes. Lots of shaming and blaming as usual. Emphasis below mine on something she claims others do when it's obvious she too wastes time online. I would check to see if her pants were on fire, but she thinks wearing pants is a sin. Is her skirt scorched and smoking yet? … [Read more...]
