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 This letter sounds like another of the letters Debi uses in her books, written in outdated Victorianisms.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...]

A Movement Much Bigger Than My Parents

Lana

by Lana Hope cross posted from her blog Wide Open Ground originally posted May 2013Heather of Becoming Worldly put together a post today that gave me physical tears and a knot in my stomach. The post centers on the 2009 a men’s leadership summit, and a speech given by Doug Philips. Doug Philips of Vision Forum was also previously an attorney at HSLDA. Its worth mentioning, as Heather notes, that most of the famous [Christian] homeschool leaders have connections with each other, and together they built up the Christian homeschool movement. … [Read more...]

How I Left My Parent’s Home

Sarahhenderson

by Sarah Henderson cross posted from her blog Feminist in Spite of ThemSeveral people have asked me about actually leaving my parents. It's kind of hard to explain exactly what happened, because there was not one day when I decided to leave.When I was 16, I was still attending a conservative church with my parents. In my family we were still expected to wear head coverings all the time, but the church we attended only expected them in churches. So in December of 2004 (when I was 16) I decided to stop wearing one at all - to me you either follow that verse 100% or not at all, and I wasn't going to be the only one. I also secretly purchased jeans and changed into them on rare occasions … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 6 – Kids Saying ‘F*ck’ and Explaining Bestiality in the Church?

quotingquiverfull

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - SanctuaryEditor's note: Whew, finally the end and it's all Michael doubling down on his message of control everything you expose your children to and homeschool them.  Don't forget to put on the full armor of God too! The question all of this brings up to my mind is has the church really changed that much in the last thirty years beyond the rock and roll worship music, fancy lights and technology? I'm not sure it has. … [Read more...]

An Open Letter To My Former High School Teachers

Sarahhenderson

by Sarah Henderson cross posted from her blog Feminist in Spite of ThemDear Teachers,                                                                                            October 15, 2013When I came to the high school at age 17, I had absolutely no idea how to be a student.  Many of you know by now that I had didn't know what a teacher-student dynamic was. I hope you understand that up to that point I had been around adults who mostly made stuff up as they went along, and expected respect from authority that was derived simply from being bigger and older, not from legitimate accomplishment. To a scared 17 year old, it looked the same at first, because of the authority aspect. In … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Zero Life Choices For Women?

quotingquiverfull

 by Shannon Roberts from Mercator Net and as quoted at Ladies Against Feminism - Super Women vs SuperwomanEditor's note: This piece is at the heart of the matter for LAF. It perfectly sums up their deepest fears and beliefs, the thing they are fighting against, the right for women to determine how they will live and parent. They feel completely threatened by anyone that does not make the choice to be a Evangelical Christian home-schooling momma. It's always either or with them, no understanding that for most women there is something else in between the two polar opposites of the 'Career Woman' and 'Righteous Homeschooling Mom'. Most mothers live in the space between those … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Religious Reasons For Homeschooling Are The Best?

quotingquiverfull

by Jeramy Anderson from Persevero News - Homeschool: The Default Editor's note: Anderson seems to be saying that academic excellence doesn't matter, only that you keep your children away from anything that isn't religious. He needs to ask Alecia Pennington and others coming out of the movement how well that worked out... … [Read more...]
