The Christian home school subculture isn’t a children-first movement. Some former students are bravely speaking out

Several decades ago, political activists on the religious right began to put together an “ideology machine”. Home schooling was a big part of the plan. The idea was to breed and “train up” an army of culture warriors. We now are faced with the consequences of their actions, some of which are quite disturbing.


Smith is referring to the Calvinist movement, founded by Rousas John Rushdoony, that advocates a Christian takeover of the political system in order to “purify” the nation and cleanse it of the sin of secularism. Rushdoony taught that public schools –“statist education,” in his words – promote chaos, primitivism, and “a vast disintegration into the void”. He advocated home schooling as a way to rear a generation that could carry out the mission of retaking the nation for Christ.

Much of fundamentalist home schooling is driven by deeply sexist and patriarchal ideology. The Quiverfull movement teaches that women need to submit to their husbands and have as many babies as they possibly can. The effects of these ideas on children are devastating, as a glance at HA’s blogs show.“The story of being home schooled was a story of being told to sit down and shut up.‘An ideal woman is quiet and submissive,’ I was told time and time again,” writes Phoebe.“The silence and submission I was pushed into was ultimately a place of loneliness, bitterness and almost crippling insecurity.”

Why don't you tell us?

And why does it matter if Obama and Hillary let them die without any effort to help and then covered up the incident?

Quit lying. The truth is he's forcing people to get health insurance.
Dumb Dave is such a lying POS. Obama and the Nazi Democrats are forcing people into crap health care. If it was so great, why did the Unionized Connecticut State Employees vote down a deal with the state (Democrat Governor) because they thought they would be forced into Connecticut's proposed version of Obamacare?

The union employees re-voted affirmatively after the union leaders assured them "No Obamacare".

Dumb Dave is such a lying, deceitful, ignorant POS.

A liberal website criticized Romney for saying in 1985 he wanted to "harvest companies".
A harvest strategy is the way an entrepreneur or investor intends to extract his money from a business after it has become successful.
Success breeds success.
Hard to believe this concept eludes so many liberals.
But milking people out of their hard-earned money to buy into global warming and becoming filthy rich by scamming them is okey-dokey.
But it's okay for the filthy rich to scam the public with fake climate denier pseudo-science so they can continue to make obscene profits off other peoples' pain and suffering from climate catastrophes? It's okay for wealthy private entrepreneurs to 'harvest ' companies , but not the U S government ? Lincoln picked winners and losers in getting the Trans-Continental railroad built during the Civil War; Eisenhower picked winners and losers in getting the U S interstate highway system built during the Cold War, but a Black American President Obama can not do the same as a White-American President George W Bush in picking winners and losers in getting a U S renewable energy national infrastructure built to replace the aging , obsolescent fossil fuel energy regime?

Oh, do you mean Bain Capital? Whose consulting expertise became widely copied within the private equity industry? Who a University of Chicago School of Business economist said "came up with a model that was very successful and very innovative and that now everybody uses"?
Are you talking about Romney at Bain Capital who former President Clinton said had a "sterling record"?
Or are you talking about someone else?
Sheeeat on a splinter, Batty, but you can't even use who and whom correctly, let alone know what Bain Capital's success depended on...hint: go back and watch the first "Wall Street." You're gettin' closer to that next mini-stroke that might be a maxi any time now, I see--not to worry you've already said on any number of occasions that you're all your dad's fault.

Taxation without representation, online edition

The Senate passed the Marketplace Fairness Act by a 69-27 vote on Monday, bringing us one step closer to state taxes on Internet commerce. The House has its own version of the bill, so there’s a pretty good chance it will reach the President’s desk, and of course you had Barack Obama at “new tax.” It will be a wonder if he can keep from trembling visibly with excitement when he signs the law. Republicans, on the other hand, might have a spot of trouble explaining their enthusiasm for a new tax to constituents.

You're right, sonicfilter. The 'family values','pro-business' politics was flushed down the toilet with Sanford's win over Elizabeth Colbert-Busch, a honest , respectable, successful local businesswoman from Mount Pleasant, South Carolina.

Dave would never understand that these companies would have closed anyway, and instead at least were given a chance.
Dave prefers the Hostess-type of bankruptcy, where a bullying union drives a company down the drain.
Would they??? They could have survived or been bought out by a company that would not have bankrupted them.

Hostess already got at least two concessions from the Bakers union while handing out 6 figure salaries & bonuses to its executives.
