Here are 2 blogs which I think might be of interest:

Rethinking Vision Forum looks like the place to send anyone who has questions about Vision Forum.  It is all about “Examining the Fallacies of Vision Forum’s ‘Godly’ Family Living.”   Since this blog links to the series to which I used to link in my sidebar, I have replaced that link with this one.

I also just found another blog about escaping from a controlling Christian family, The Eighth And Final Square by QuicksilverQueen. I am seeing a great many of these blogs.  I read these stories with great sadness.  So many parents so sure that they have found the secret of raising perfect children for God.  And then the “perfect” children grow up and leave.  They often consider their childhood a nightmare from which to escape.  They sometimes reject God and Christianity all together, but thankfully, not always.  Many of them (such as this link) are not sure what they believe and are still processing.  It breaks my heart to see that some of them have  become atheists.  I have linked to many such blogs in hopes  that their testimonies may convince parents to avoid the pitfalls into which their parents have fallen.

    Two things. First, I’ve moved the Rethinking Vision Forum website from blogger to wordpress, and I’m done a lot of work on it. It’s starting to look really good! There’s also some real collaboration going on. Second, would you mind if I physically copy your list of Vision Forum affiliates into the website, just so I credit you and provide a link? Let me know if you have a problem with this and I’ll remove it, but I think that having the actual text on the RVF website too would be really good thing. Thank you so much for all your work compiling it, that’s very important!

      Thanks, I’ll fix the link. The thing about the list is that I did not compile it. I have it by permission. I’ll see if I can get permission for you.

      Ok, she said it was ok but would prefer that you include my credit of her. This is the part you are missing:

      This list was compiled by Barefoot Betsy from a thread at GCM

        Okay, I’m adding that back in right now! Thanks! There – it’s done, you’re both credited and linked right up front! I can’t say how much I appreciate that list. It saved me a lot of work! Best! Libby
