Quoting Quiverfull: Anti Spanking Equals Anti Family?

Quoting Quiverfull: Anti Spanking Equals Anti Family? February 12, 2015

quotingquiverfullby Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy – Spank and Save a Child

Editor’s note: How exactly is it that trying to teach children that violence is wrong by not spanking them equates societal engineering?

The anti-spanking campaign is a front for an anti-family agenda, a progressive socialist movement to reengineer society with government the only mentor of children. A few well- placed individuals in government, media, and the educational system religiously promote a new world order where the collective state replaces God and the Constitution. They must control the minds of the citizenry if they are to institute their totalitarian policies; and they are well aware from history that mind control must begin with the youth—thus the public school system. But homeschool parents and Christian parents protect their children from corrupt worldviews. The socialists know that the last remaining bulwark against brainwashing children is parental headship—thus their hostility toward the family. As long as parents are free to pass on their culture and faith, totalitarian government is impossible.

    If the only way you can pass on your culture and faith is to literally beat it into your children, then it’s not much of a culture and it’s not much of a faith.

    totalitarian government is impossible.

    …says the “Command Man” who flips out if his slightest whim is questioned.

    Translation: “People who grow up being treated with respect and reason aren’t likely to fall for the CPM/biblical literalist/Tea Party scam, and this would cause the collapse of civilization! Or at least the collapse of my bank account balance, which comes to the same thing in the end… at least for me.”

  • Is there a contest to see how many glittering generalities can be fit in one paragraph? Because I think we have a winner.

  • He sounds like an ignorant version of Rush Limbaugh.

    He should have consulted a dictionary before writing that paragraph.

  • BlueVibe

    Do these people not read their own writings? Can anyone here think of a better way to prepare children to be mind-controlled than to demand absolute obedience at home? Aaugh, I can’t deal with this kind of non-logic today.

    I’m willing to lay money that this speaker would have absolutely NO issue with a movement designed to re-engineer the US into a theocracy where the government enforces church attendance, brainwashing of children and other such religious matters.

    But since he thinks it’s some other kind of re-engineering going on, he’s against it.
