To answer a question...


You can click on the above image to read the text of the email; it says:

Just curious. Since you have six children why would you have a "headliner" on your blog featuring the child of someone else? Do you know anything about them? Their morals? Are they KJO's? Are they Christians?

I'm so glad you asked. I do, in fact, know the little blond girl with the pigtails featured in my blog's header. And I know for a fact that she, as someone else recently put it, "hates homos, faggots, Obama, socialism, abortion, public schools, [...], and IVF.  Not necessarily in that order".  

How do I know that? Because the photo is of me, at the tender age of 3. 

Thank you for your heartfelt concern, though.

  1. I read both your blog and the one that left that particular comment.

    Both are interesting, for various reasons. I appreciate your candor in your beliefs, regardless of whether I agree with them or not. They always give me food for thought.

    Also, you are quite cute! :)

  2. LOL! I laughed hysterically at this. Um I thought it was pretty obvious that the child in the picture was you, but maybe I've got a brain cell or ten to figure that out. *snicker*

  3. Ha ha! I knew it was you from the get go...funny! You were awfully cute! :)

  4. I knew that picture was you, i told Jessica i thought that when you first posted it there, but she disagreed. I looked at that lady's post on you, it was pretty funny, especially the part where you corrected her on illegals.

  5. That picture even looks like you. But not everyone will see it, I suppose.

    I couldn't find that person's blog, however. Usually there is a link to it in th post headline, but that comment is anonymous. What am I missing?

  6. Seriously?! Really?!

    Good grief, do people have to have EVERYTHING spelled out for them? LOL!

    I'm just a casual reader of your blog, and I have only commented a couple of times, but I knew immediately when I saw the photo it was you.

    Have not congratulated you on Anna, but I will take this time to do so. She is absolutely precious, as are the other children. What an alert little baby!

  7. Oh how fun to see a pic of you little. I had no clue it was you. Just thought it was a blog thing you copied for your header. Anyway....I got a good laugh with the lady who wrote a blog about you and people "like you." How we are all about some movement and how messed up it is that we want to be submissive to our husbands. HA!!! Her poor husband! :) Oh and how we are a "qiverfull movement" and basically a bunch of freaks. Hehehehe. Oh my. Thanks for making me laugh.

  8. Sally,

    what do you mean, "were"??

    Chad and Jess,

    okay, I'll say it: Chad, you were right, and Jessica was wrong. Go tell her "I told you so" (if you haven't already)! :)

    Other Sally,

    I hyperlinked to the other person's blog (click on the "someone else" part), but since redesigning my blog, I need to change the color scheme because hyperlinks hardly stand out any more. Here is the link again:

    I don't know the lady, nor do I read her blog. I noticed I got people clicking through from her to me this week, so I went and checked it out. It really made me laugh, and I liked her assessment of me.

    Carrie,

    thank you!

  9. That is pretty funny.

    I figured it had to be either you, your mom, or grandmother. It looks just like you!

    ReplyDelete
  10. It is obviously you. Beautiful picture. I thought everyone realized that.

  11. HaHaHa...too funny! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  12. To funny! I thought homos and faggots were the same thing ;-D

    ReplyDelete
  13. I could tell it was you and I've only read your homo hating blog for 2 weeks!!!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Aw, you are cute!!! You sort of look like Miriam.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I knew that was you!

    I'm so disturbed at your hatred of people. You are not Christ like. Jesus said to love one another. You can not hate and love at the same time.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Oh, and I thought I should add that I've been with my husband for 21 years. You should DEFINITELY feel sorry for him. Bahahahahahahahaha.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Ok ok....SORRY!!! You ARE still CUTE!! HA!!!!

    Thanks for the smile... :)

  18. By the way...I was sent this news story recently and am APPAULED.

    I already know your thoughts on IVF but this will make you sick...like it did me. In case you haven't already read it, here is the link:

    You don't have to publish this if you don't want to...I know it has nothing to do with this particular post but I wanted you to see it anyway. Have a good day!!

  19. That's why I didn't recognize you. At the tender age of three you weren't filled with hated. Hatred has changed you. Hatred has changed your looks.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Wow, that kind of stuff doesn't make you angry anymore at all? I guess your used to it at this point and worst. I guess you should feel flattered that someone actually took the time to write a whole post about you and brought you more traffic to your blog. If only you got a dollar for every hateful comment!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I thought that was you but I wasn't sure , you were so cute ....but I can't believe someone would email you about that .

    ReplyDelete
  22. Ugh why are people so dumb!!!

    But you were an adorable little girl! And your daughters... they are the spitting image of you! :) your sons look more like your husband though. I love it when all kids look alike! :)

    God Bless,
    Stellar.

  23. Ha! Michele's comments got to be downright closed-minded, intolerant and hateful there at the end! And she closed commenting!

    I may not agree with all you say Zsuzsanna, but you have the honesty and integrity to be open and respectful to your commenters, rather than resorted to profanity. My mother always taught me that profanity was a sign of ignorance. Truly intelligent people can always find a way to express themselves decently. You always manage that. Michele...not so much!

  25. I would like to recommend the book - One Race One Blood- available at answersingenesis. One of the two authors is an African American-A.Charles Ware. He wrote the Appendix in the book- Hijacking the Civil Rights Bus: Homosexuality and the Scriptures.

  26. Hmmm maybe you should take it as a compliment that they thought it was some type of adorable child model??? lol :)

  27. I thought it was pretty obviously a picture of you.

    It is truly difficult sometimes to conquer one's flesh and be Christ-like. It's like that for me right now. Sometimes, in an attempt to imitate him, I share the Gospel. My job is to plant the seed, have faith, and pray for other's salvation. I'm praying for that of and your family.

    I dutifully offer both you and your husband Luke 6:27-49 and Matthew 7:1-6, 21-23. I know you claim to have a Bible and would not want me to paste all of these verses. In case you don't have one, try blueletterbible.org.

    Never forget that even if you are saved, you are still imperfect on earth because of Adam's fall. For proof see Genesis 3 and Romans 3:23.

    We violate Jesus's commandments in John 13:34 and 15:12,17, if we hate fellow sinners. Gay people, fertility specialists, IVF patients, abortion doctors and nurses, THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES and public school teachers, were loved so much by Jesus that He died for them...he died for you too. Just as He loved the sinners in the crowd, including the two thieves at Golgotha, as they mocked, spat upon and cursed Him, The King of Kings, Jesus loves the sinners today and wants them saved. If Jesus loves all sinners, then you need to do the same.

    Then, maybe you might be more effective in spreading the gospel as opposed to a punch line for an atheist billboard.

    Respond, delete, use my comment in a rant or sermon, it's immaterial to me. Whatever you do, please urgently read and meditate on those verses. Again that's Luke 6:27-49 and Matthew 7:1-6, 21-23, John 13:34 and 15:12,17. If you find time to blog, the you can crack open your Bible and read these verses.

  29. Anonymous- I think we should give others the whole counsel of God- Rev. 22:15- For without are dogs(as our Pastor says-sexual perverts), and sorcerers, and whoremongers,and murderers,and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.(KJV) and other Scriptures like 1 Cor.6:9,10-Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived:neither fornicators, nor idolaters,nor adulterers,nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind..." Are you reading those Scriptures you mentioned as a pacifist and you don't believe in self-defense? Those are the Scriptures the pacifists use. I don't understand how a pacifist won't defend their children,etc. My job is to pray for abortion to be abolished even if that means some murderer will lose money. We need to judge others or we wouldn't have a judicial system. If you don't have Wisdom with Scriptures like the ones you mention and Matthew 7:1(KJV) then you might not believe in law and justice and might be an anarchist. Jeremiah 7:16,17-"...Pray not thou for this people...Seest thou not what they do...?"

  30. That comment and your response nearly ruined my computer keyboard--I nearly spit out the water I had in my mouth! Why, the photograph is so clearly you, unless Miriam or Becky have taken charge whilst you take care of the littlest one
    OH, Did I need a good laugh and this anony-'mouse' gave it to me tonight! God bless and be with you and the family!

  31. The book I mentioned in a previous comment-One Race One Blood- teaches what the Bible teaches-Acts 17:26(KJV). We are one blood/one race. Evolution teaches there are different races. The book documents the things that have happened in history due to the theory of evolution. The book was previously titled-Darwin's Plantation. The Creation Museum depicts Adam's and Eve's skin color as medium brown-all the amounts of melanin come from their genes. I like how the Abeka 7th and 8th grade science books teach with chapters like Science vs. Evolution.

  32. Taryn- why do you think the word dog in that verse means homosexual? I think it is a nasty horriable sin, and believe me I hate their lifestyle and the way they are tring to brainwash people to their way of thinking. I also know we should pray for them to get saved. Maybe you didn't read the verse where God says to pray for your enemies, and to do good to them! That is how God works though us. Believe me that would be very hard to do if I encountered one of them, but it's the right ting to do. And she never said abortion doctors shouldn't lose money. She just said it is wrong to hate them. I think we should do everything we can to stop them, but we dont have to hate them. I think that was all she was tring to say, and she is right.

  33. Tyran,
    In that verse it says maketh lie- that would be you, me, and everyone eles on earth.

  34. Romans 9:13 says,"...Jacob have I loved,but Esau have I hated."and that is repeated in Malachi 1:2,3. In Revelation 2, Jesus says he hates the DEEDS(v.6) and DOCTRINES(v.15) of the Nicolaitians. Luke 6:27(KJV)-Jesus says-"...Love your enemies..."-(where does the KJV say to "pray for your enemies"?)(this reminds me of Christmas when people say the angels were "singing" at Jesus' birth-where does it say those word(s)?)-and in Luke 22:36 Jesus says to buy a sword. 1 Peter 1:15,16 says,"Be ye(plural) holy...". I read a biography about a woman missionary to India during WWII and the author discusses that many Christians felt Scripture was telling them to NOT pray for Hitler. John 17:9-Jesus says, "...I pray not for the world,but for them which thou hast given me...". We need to be wise and have discernment. I know Matthew 5(KJV)-as has been mentioned- and we and our church do not believe divorce and remarriage(v.32) are allowed except for "fornication"(KJV)-during the betrothal/engagement. Mary was called Joseph's wife in Matthew 1 during their betrothal. I agree with Matthew 5:43-48(KJV),as well.

  35. I knew from the first moment I saw this pic that it was Zsuzsanna. Perhaps the person who wrote tht comment has medical problems with her eyes.

  36. Sad... truly sad. How can you hope to win "faggots, homos, socialists"... etc. by hating them?

    Surely God hates sin... but you sound like those evil sign-waving folks from Westboro Baptist Church and their lawsuit-happy family that runs that sadly misled "church".

    May God create in you a merciful, compassionate heart toward sinners... which we might all remember the Lord's word through Paul:

    "And such were some of you..."

  37. I don't understand how thoes verses prove God wants US to hate people? When does he ever comand us to do that? God just said he hated Esau, and he was not a homosexual. Also you never explained why dog ment homosexual in that one verse. God tells us to love PEOPLE, and to hate SIN. I hate all the things in that list also, (besides Obama he is a person, I just hate everything he stands for.)I just don't aromaticly hate the person doing them. I would pray for them to get saved. God says he is not willing thay any should parish. Also what did marriage have to do with that. Another thing, why is someone stupid because they can't tell that's her picture at 3! I thought that persons comment was stupid, but I don't know how many adults I would atomicly know their 3 year old picture! I have never seen more hateful "Christians" in my life. Very sad.

  38. You don't have to publish this, but just wanted to tell you, the way you wrote your last post on hating was good. You seemed to explain it better this time. Last time you made it seem different. Once anyone dies and goes to hell they can't be saved, not just homosexuals, ect. No there is no verse that says love people hate their sin. But there are verses telling us to love people, and other verses telling us to hate sin or unrighteousness. So that is where that saying comes from.

  39. That made me laugh so much! I thought it was blatantly obvious that it is you. Maybe it's because I'm European but to me it obviously fits the time and area that you have said you lived in as a young child. And anyway why would you have a picture of some random child on your blog header?

    ReplyDelete
  40. Aww! Your photo always makes me sad because you as a child looked so solemn and serious to me.
