Whatever Happened to Philip Lancaster?


GenerationCedarchip

Recommended Posts

I was visiting with an old friend. She still goes to the church where I grew up, and to close friends, she will describe herself as a "recovering Quiverfuller." Mostly we were just catching up on people we know and so on, but somehow the conversation got around to her QF days. Philip (Phil) Lancaster doesn't get mentioned on here much, but I remember him as being a big deal in QF circles in the 1990s-2000s. If I remember right, he was the owner, or at least was one of the owners, of Patriarch magazine. My old church wasn't entirely QF, but there has definitely been a QF contingent there since the 90s and I do remember hearing folks mention Lancaster and the magazine.

I did a little googling and aside from finding mentions of him being a former military chaplain and mentions of Patriarch magazine, I can't find much.  Did he just completely fall off the radar, or is he on to new projects? I was just curious.

You're right about Patriarch magazine. He also wrote at least one book that I remember was popularized by Vision Forum and their ilk, something about raising sons to be knights in shining armor, iirc.

I remember his name coming up during the fall of VF, but I'm sorry to say I can't remember any details or context.

(That I can even remember how to put two letters together to make a word, this morning, is a minor miracle.)

He wrote Family man, family leader--big Biblical Patriarchy advocate. Vision Forum promoted his book, and I think he collaborated with Doug Phillips (who is a tool) on an article about this subject. No idea what he's up to these days.

edited to add: How could I forget to mention his essay "The Loving Art of Spanking"?

The Loving Art of Spanking sounds like a BDSM guide. 

I found excerpts from his book on Amazon. There's a literally a section anticipating the question "A Patriarchy Cult?" :pb_eek:

Karen Campbell (who blogs as That Mom) mentions Lancaster in her essay looking at how all of the patriocentric nonsense, including Patriarchy magazine & Phil Lancaster, developed within and then overwhelmed the Xtian homeschooling movement:

Quote

By 1993, Phil Lancaster, a PCA pastor, also became a well-known patriarchy apologist, publishing a magazine called Patriarchy, which also promoted many of Gothard’s views on men and women. His magazine was shared by homeschooling fathers and was distributed through homeschooling conferences.

The whole essay is worth reading. I'd forgotten about James & Stacy McDonald's magazine, Patriarch's Path, full of similar dreck.

      Disgusted with Catholic Church over Cardinal Pell's funeral this week. It really reflects poorly on the church and should be a red flag to Catholics.

      I've been away since about 10 PM on Monday evening.  My husband noticed that my speech was a bit slurred, called my daughter to see if she concurred and they both agreed that I needed to go to the hospital.  There I was taken back within minutes to be evaluated for a stroke.   My BP was sky-high. I. undressed and was helped into a hospital gown.  The PureWick did not work that night so when I had to go I just went.  (I do want a PureWick if I ever get urinary stress incontenence though and would need to wear diapers.). 
      I had a CT scan fairly early the next morning and it confirmed that I'd sufffered a mild stroke,  I had an MRI that afternoon which confirmed the both the mild stroke and no other damage and yet I had another CT scan -this time with a contrast medium injected.  I was allowed the Heart Healthy diet and my BP had dropped to 180/100.  They don'y want to drop the BP too rapidly so it has dropped enough to turn to Lisinipril to drop it further.
      After the ER. I was sent to the ICU and stayed until I was discharged this afternoon.  The staff were all really nice and my husband and two daughters were with me most of the time, helping out.  My oldest daughter's van was in the shop so I let her borrow the MINI since I knew she could drive a stick.  When she was visiting yesterday afternoon, her husband was in the ER waiting on a CT can and today, she was there when the speech pathologist was visiting.  She was able to get some good advice from her as her husband is currently unable to swallow.
      Anyway I'm home.  My dogs and the cat to see me home, especially my dachsie, were happy to see me home.
      A couple of things I learned:
      I need to teach my husband about loading the dishwasher.
      and 
      Jill would never be able to handle bedpans.

      I highly recommend Not the Good Girl's Youtube channel. She is making great documentaries about cults.

      Ohh jeeze, GrandBerry6 just came to me, snuggled his face in my neck and barfed, all over me. In my neck, in my hair, on my face, down inside my nightie all over the front of my nightie. Ohh FUCK! Bath, washed hair, cleaned sofa. Good times, good times.

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!
