The Bible Causes Emotional Distress!!

http://worldnetdaily.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=69147

Oh, I'm so sorry for this fellow. I sure hope that Obama becomes president so outrages like this DO NOT HAPPEN anymore...

Bradley LaShawn Fowler , a homosexual who has a blog linked to Obama's website, is suing publishers for their horrible, mean, awful translations of the Bible like the King James that liken homosexual activity with words like sin and abomination. Big money from the publishers, to the tune of 70 million dollars (yes, you read that right!), will help him put the broken pieces of his life together with a beachfront house and money in the bank. That poor fellow!

Can you imagine what rotten, mean people these "translators" are? And these "publishers?" Doing their best to stay true to, you know, what God really meant when He gave divine insipiration through people like Paul? I think they should pay every last penny to this poor, distraught soul. Imagine the nerve of those people, wrecking his family life like that with their homophobic Bible translations:

"Fowler, who is representing himself in both lawsuits, says in his complaint against Zondervan that the publisher intended to design a religious, sacred document to reflect an individual opinion or a group's conclusion to cause 'me or anyone who is a homosexual to endure verbal abuse, discrimination, episodes of hate, and physical violence ... including murder.'

"Fowler alleges both Zondervan and Thomas Nelson, with its King James Bible, manipulated Scripture without informing the public by using the term 'homosexuals' in a New Testament passage, 1 Corinthians 6:9. He told the Grand Rapids TV station in an interview he wants to "compensate for the past 20 years of emotional duress and mental instability."'

I think I'm having a hate episode right now! Eek! It's those Bible translators' fault for putting those thoughs in my braaaaiin. And I haven't even gotten 'round to telling you all the damage listening to rock music and seeing television over the years has done to me. I need some compensation, folks! Waah! (Ok, how much do I get for that tirade?)

In Obama's defense, though, there's a nutball in every bunch. I'm sure the McCain people have some weirdos, too.

  1. Gosh, I swear there are folks out there who won't be happy until they have outlawed Christianity!

  2. I plan to sue my neighbor's cat because she hissed at me when I was trying to be nice to her. I am a cat lover, darn it, and she has caused me profound emotional distress...she must pay!

    I hope this guy becomes a Christian one day. Unlikely, but that would make a neat testimony.

    This reminds me of the girls who sued McDonalds for making them fat.

  3. Whatever happened to free speech? Where is the ACLU on this?

Reading Curriculum: ABeka Book and BJU Press

Did you know that in the state of Missouri, homeschoolers must teach reading as a separate subject?  I don't know how anyone could homeschool well without teaching their child to read... but OK. 

I got many of my ABeka books used and collected them over time.  I'm glad I came across these readers early in my homeschooling years.  It teaches children to read step-by-step.  I don't think I've seen a more effective reading program for the elementary years.  The children love the stories, and what I appreciate about them is that there is a rich and varied language even in simple-to-read books in this series. 

My set is pretty old, and some are even from the 1960's and no longer listed in the reading series.  I think if I had to do things over again somehow, I think I'd just spend on a curriculum set and be done with it.  That's the thing, though, with homeschooling.  By the time you figure out what the perfect curriculum is for you, your children have graduate…

Homeschooling is NOT So Hard.

I wish I'd have known this starting out. I wish I'd have known that it's actually LESS work to just homeschool your child, than to be an "involved parent" at school.

We've enjoyed elementary school with our older boys. *Most* of the teachers were actually pretty competent and caring (the others, I save for another blog post, another day...). We had the children involved in extra activities like the Spanish Club or Service Club, or choir, and they got a fair bit out of the experience.

But it's a LOT of work.

You get about a ton of worksheets that must be done by a certain time. Usually on a day when you're sick or have no time. You get the phone calls about this or that, and about a zillion sheets per day that sometimes contain important news, so you MUST go through them daily. The schools also *love* to throw in half days, teacher in-service days and early dismissals. Not so bad, unless you have children at more than one school and the schedu…

Holiday Gifts for the Homeschool Teacher!

Merrymaking hint:  leave this post up on your phone/ computer for your family to "accidentally" find!  Let the magic begin!

 All teachers love a little appreciation every now and then, including homeschoolers.   I don't know about you, though, but I don't want any apple crap.  So first rule:  no apple crap! 

Otherwise I'm pretty open.  I love getting gifts, even if it's just something small or simple.  One thing I love is when my children want to help out and make lunch or clean up or put their laundry away.  Or just behave themselves and get their math done.  This is a really big thing when you think about it.  

And from the adults in my life, the gift of coffee always shows love - or rather, someone not wanting an "I need coffee" emergency in the middle of winter after a big snowstorm.  Somehow, I always have a lot of coffee in my pantry during the winter months.  (Guess why.) Thanks, D!
