nelliebelle1197 posted a topic in Quiver Full of SnarkMarlin Bontrager is literally the worst person in the world this week; if you don’t believe me, read the last thread.
So I was reading Mama Bontrager's list for mothers who are overwhelmed and they list that as four or more kids; as if mothers with LESS than a quiver don't feel overwhelmed??? At any rate, besides the "be in submission to your husband idea because mothers can make bad decisions on their own." part,, the book section for children made me scream. Curious George and Berenstain Bears are out!!!??? and of course Disney. You know besides having a crappy home school education, these poor children cannot even read good quality children's books. I hate fundies and all they do to restrict their children's learning. I want to kidnap every single one and let them loose in a public library.
Ted Cruz is rolling out a group called "Homeschoolers for Cruz," and Marlin Bontrager, patriarch of the singing family, gets top billing as chair. I guess they're the most prominent Iowa homeschoolers? Anyway, it sounds like the Cruz group is going to campaign nationally. The Bontragers have a post up on their blog about singing at one of his events. I'm picturing a bus tour like the Duggars did for Santorum, guess we'll have to wait and see. If Cruz does well, I could see this raising the family's profile a bit. http://blog.4president.org/2016/2016/01/ted-cruz-for-president-announces-homeschoolers-for-cruz-coalition-totaling-6670-members.html
