    It is very interesting that the most popular posts are about what harms people.
    I see this as a good sign. That people are concerned for the welfare of others.
    It shows compassion and sensitivity.

    With all due respect ,have you given any thought of researching the damage organized religion is doing to our children,that have misguided parents putting their children in the hands of strangers (to be abused) in the Religious boarding schools,in the name of Jesus. It is an epidemic here in the United States. Just Google “abusive boarding schools” and it’s an endless list of abuses by Clergy that promise to put the kids in the right track. I mentor abused people from Institutional abuse,and in 98% of cases,it displays a sad state. Families are forever broken,the victims are broken,they seek alcohol,drugs,snd suicide as a relief for their pains. Few are strong enough to overcome this tradegy. I am one of them. Perfect example is the stories of New Bethany victims. It is now a Billion dollar industry. Shameful!

      Hi Charlie, I am very concerned about this type of abuse, just as I am concerned about fundamentalist home schooling; but these are not my stories to tell. Though I listened to Lester Roloff, the apparent grandfather of schools like New Bethany, on the radio many years ago, I don’t have personal experience in these schools or in homeschooling.

      Perhaps you would like to research and write an article on this subject to post on this blog. If you do, contact me at and we can discuss it. Thank you for your work and concern in this area.
