I feel sick

So I followed the link on someone’s blog to the
No Greater Joy site to see just how wacky these advocates of beating
your child with plumbing supply line
might actually be (read more about these sickos here). And I made the
mistake of clicking on one of their articles about a "father’s greatest
responsibility to his daughter."

OK, I wasn’t too shocked to find it advocating "courtship" and what
amounts, essentially, to arranging marriage. If it works for them, and
all that.

But then it started in about the "critical questions" to ask your daughter’s suitor. Can you guess what they were?

"When was the last time you looked at pornography?"

"Have you ever had sexual contact with a female?"

"Have you ever had sexual contact with a male?"

"Have you ever had sexual contact with an animal?"

WTF?!?! And if that wasn’t enough, the author goes on to claim that
having sex with animals is not particularly uncommon among the hothouse
homeschooled fundamentalist crowd…

So what exactly is going on with this "rigorous moral training"
that is apparently producing a generation of goat-rapers? If there’s
any truth to this assertion, could it possibly stem from filling kids’
heads with the idea that sexual thoughts/behavior of any kind are
Horrible Sinful Bound-for-Hell Badnesses… thus morally equating
masturbation, French kissing and sheep-humping?

(…trying to imagine the look on DH’s face if my dad had asked him
if he’d ever had sex with an animal… trying to imagine the look on my
DAD’S face if someone had told him to ask DH-to-be if he’d ever had sex
with an animal…)

Now I need to go take a shower. A long, hot, purificational shower. Yecccchhh….

    ’nuff said.

  2. Yeouch… that is some crazy stuff!

    Wow. Just…wow. Every day I am reminded that people are just downright weird. That link was my reminder today!

    Serious yecch!
    OMG…I can’t imagine my father even uttering the word “sex” to my husband. And if the question involved animals, well, let’s just say my guy loves me, but he would have probably run for the hills and I’d never have seen him again. He’d have thought my family was too weird to get involved with.
    Just goes to show you that conservative or liberal, religious or non, there are a lot a freaky people out there in all walks of life. Yikes.
    And as for the beating children thing…beyond sick. Not just weird. There are so many acceptable ways to discipline a child, that I can’t help but think of those who actually harm them as disgustingly evil. Yuck.

    Wow…can’t think of anything else to say…Makes you wonder what makes people the way they are and how they think…wow.

  6. Ann I says:

    Who the heck thinks that website is a good thing? Yikes!

  7. Cyndi says:

    I think they have been around for a while… Maybe some publicity will be good. But then, it makes me wonder why these people are so desperate that they think it would be a good idea in the first place. Something is not right.

  8. Gwyn says:

    Okay. Breathe. What in the WORLD? Guess I need to see what these links are. Though it sounds as if I’ll need to go puke once I finish.

  9. A mother in our playgroup (a raging fundamentalist) believed in spanking…I mean serious corporal punishment. Once when she was here, her little guy misbehaved in some way that really sent her into a royal tizzy fit (of course he was into everything, he was 3 for gosh sakes!)…She asked me for a wooden spoon. What for? To beat the cra out of this little one. I told her to leave…And…If I ever saw her wail on either one of her kids or anyone elses, I’d call CPS. What kind of Christian crap is that??
