Poor Excuses for a Butcher: Gosnell is the Typical Abortionist

| April 17, 2013

First there was a complete media blackout on the Gosnell case (except in pro-life circles), and now that liberal outlets have been forced to comment on this case, they blame the pro-life movement for “creating” abortionists like Gosnell. This is so dumbfoundingly illogical and without any basis in fact. Easy access to abortion begets more […]

“The Woman’s Place”

| July 19, 2012

[Editor’s Note: This is a post from the original LAF site that I meant to bring over to the new one but forgot. After a couple of reader requests, I managed to locate the original file. This is excellent material and illustrates why robust biblical womanhood negates any “need” for feminism. Women are already “empowered” thanks […]

The Christian divorce rate myth

| April 9, 2012

From American Vision News: The Aquila Report reports, “Christians divorce at roughly the same rate as the world.” It’s one of the most quoted stats by Christian leaders today. And it’s perhaps one of the most inaccurate. . . . Many people who seriously practice a traditional religious faith — be it Christian or other — […]

An Open Letter to Suze Orman

| December 7, 2011

I think this post has gone viral in the last 24 hours. It’s just plain common sense, but I can’t even count how many times people have asked us how on earth we can afford to have “so many” children. If every child cost us $700-1000 a month, then, yes, we might be in trouble […]

Yes, Virginia, there is a gender gap

| September 6, 2011

We’ve posted about the wage-gap myth before, but here’s another good piece on this controversial issue: The National Economic Council report “Jobs and Economic Security for America’s Women” recites some of the many ways the Obama administration is getting jobs for women. The report promises that President Obama “is committed to continuing the push for […]

Feminists Have a Tantrum

| August 23, 2011

From Phyllis Schlafly’s latest column: The feminists are so accustomed to having their gender doctrines prevail in the courts, in the bureaucracy, in the media and in academia that they can’t deal with being told the truth, i.e., that their notions don’t make sense and are unfair to others, especially employers, husbands and fathers. Judge […]

Zimbabwe’s “Surprising” AIDS success

| August 2, 2011

The AIDS rate here in Africa far outstrips that of any other continent with infection rates in countries like Botswana and Lesotho approaching 24%. Zimbabwe’s rate was 29% in 1997–that’s almost a third of the population infected with HIV or full-blown AIDS. Within ten years, it had tumbled to 16%…and no thanks to western-style “solutions” […]

Kids can do abstinence, data shows

| May 19, 2011

From Carolyn Moynihan over at Mercatornet: Those who insist on “safer sex” education for adolescents seem to assume two things: first, that nearly all teens will become sexually active, and second, that it doesn’t matter (they have a right to) so long as they take precautions against disease and pregnancy. Therefore, all teens should be […]

Girly-Girls

| March 26, 2011

“I’m not like other girls, who -“ I always want to stop a sentence dead in its tracks when it starts that way. Because I can guess what might come afterwards: I don’t like frilly clothing. I don’t like the color pink. I don’t scream when I see a bug (or a mouse, or any […]

Modern Women: Submitting and Serving?

| March 7, 2011

Nobody wants to be a slave. Nobody grows up aspiring to be a servant. In independent, me-centered America, all the coveted positions are on top. Words like “slave” and “servant” have negative connotations that make us think “low-class,” “subjugation,” and, in many cases, injustice or infringement of rights. Not surprising, then, is the fact that […]

When All the Ducks Are In A Row

| February 1, 2011

Once upon a time, there were two women attending a conference. After one of the sessions, the speaker called all of the women in attendance to bow their heads and pray. One of the women bowed her covered head, lowered her unpainted eyes, and clasped her work-worn hands in front of her: “God, I thank […]

“A Generation of Men Raised by Women”

| December 14, 2010

We really love the things Brett McKay has done over at The Art of Manliness. We’ve linked to several pieces he and his associates have written since AoM started. But today’s post absolutely takes the cake. It is so good that we’re cross-posting it here in three categories, including the Theme Articles section. Why? Because […]

Duggar kids, free indeed

| September 3, 2010

Here is  a great article with some excellent and insightful commentary on the Duggar family: As we spoke to the 3 of them, one word kept jumping out at me:  Freedom.  These girls were experiencing freedom teenagers rarely taste.  Completely free to be themselves.  The exact opposite of the words so often used by media folk […]

Prepare to Get Your Grey Matter Moving

| July 2, 2010

Sarah Mae at Like a Warm Cup of Coffee has started up a fantastic series dealing with several hot-button issues and common myths about biblical womanhood, family, children, etc. Here are some of the topics she has set to tackle (with the help of guest writers): Unique callings in Christ Putting women in a box/dictating […]

Where do they get this stuff?

| June 12, 2010

This morning, I woke up to find the following comment on my Facebook wall. A pastor’s wife was writing in response to a video I posted yesterday describing how “the pill” is an abortifacient. If her comment hadn’t been so troubling it would have been hysterically funny. She apparently doesn’t know the hundreds of large, homeschooling families I know. What do you think?
