Quoting Quiverfull: Homeschool Because Public School is Filled With Pornography?

by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife - Pornography in the SchoolEditor's note: I cannot decide if Lori sounds like Harold Hill in 'The Music Man' warning about the terrible dangers of pool tables or the moderator in 'Reefer Madness' in this piece claiming that evil Ipads are stream-lining porn into the classrooms. Does no one in Eninitas school district know how to put content blockers on their media devices? Why isn't Lori worried about the real problems in her community, like the homelessness of the middle class? I guess it's just easier and more ego-boosting to complain about the godless public schools than take real action. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 4 – Infant Manifesto?

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - Infant ManifestoEditor's note: More of this vile blaming by Mr. Pearl of babies for actually having needs and expecting their parents to meet those needs. This has some added bashing of public schools too. He leaps right from babyhood to school without anything in between. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Homeschool So Your Children Will Not Be Sodomized?

by Lori Alexander from Always Learning - Hazing in High SchoolEditor's note: Lori's posting today started out with a story from some sports television show she watched about a boy that was sodomized at school by other football players as his initiation into high school football. She then proceeds to start ranting about hazing and bullying in public school before arriving here at only homeschool your children to protect them from sodomy and the world. Based upon what happened in the Willis family and the Duggar family it's not exactly a given that homeschooling will prevent you from being sexually molested either!Since Lori does not mention the name of the show she saw, or the channel … [Read more...]

Questioning The Pearls: Help! He Wants Me to Go to College!

For well over a year we’ve been running a second Answering ‘Preparing To Be A Help Meet’ on Sundays, filled with questions by young ladies trying to get ready for marriage. Since we’ve run through many of the questions on their site it’s time to shift Sundays to something else, like perhaps examining the cornucopia of probably fake emails and questions that Michael and Debi Pearl of No Greater Joy post on their website and the possibly poisonous answers they give. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Public Schools Filled With Mega Sin?

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...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Letting Boys Be Boys Best Accomplished With Homeschooling?

by some unnamed LAF Editor because Ladies Against Feminism has stopped putting some of the authors names on their pieces. From Ladies Against Feminism -  Stop the War on Boys in Classrooms - Homeschool Boys have little patience for wasting their lives putting in their time and working counter-intuitively to their calling and purpose. Schools are the factory of feminism. Boys who don’t sit well with this are normal. No wonder they are treated like defective girls. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Put Sex Ed Back In The Home, Not The School

by an unidentified someone at Ladies Against Feminism as "Putting Sex Back in  Sex Education, Home Education" after author read a Camille Paglia article about fixing sex ed in the public schools originally published in Time Magazine. The great comedy of this all is that the LAF gals have agreed with the ideas of a *gasp!* lesbian! Correct me if I'm wrong but doesn't LAF rant against homosexuality in all its forms usually? Most confused here.What Camille actually said: … [Read more...]

An Average Homeschooler: Introduction

by Samantha cross posted from her blog Defeating the Dragons  [me, the first year I was homeschooled]   I’ve been avoiding writing about this. Even once I started planning out the series, I debated with myself for weeks over whether or not I wanted to write it out– and then post it. I’ve talked a lot about some of the other aspects of growing up in fundamentalism, but I’ve avoided talking about my experience with homeschooling for a few reasons. I’ve touched on it a few times, and I’ve even written posts for Homeschoolers Anonymous and for Leaving Fundamentalism. Even as I wrote those posts, I was hesitant about sharing them here, although I did eventually. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: God Not Welcome in Public School?

by Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies - The Key of Knowledge God is the God of knowledge (1 Samuel 2:3; Proverbs 9:10; Isaiah 11:2; Colossians 2:3). Are our children taught knowledge from God's point of view in our public schools? No.God has the key of knowledge (Luke 11:52). Do our public school teachers use the key of God's knowledge to lead the students into His ways? No. They take away the key of knowledge and instead teach man's ways and ideas. … [Read more...]
