Another abuser-enabling, victim-enslaving book: Jim Newheiser’s  “Marriage, Divorce and Remarriage”

A Cry For Justice

Pastor Jim Newheiser has simply rehashed the same old enslaving party lines about marriage that evangelicals have been regurgitating like a cow chewing its cud. If I had a way of putting a visual here of me shaking my head while muttering to myself, I would.

safesteps4children.org.au is an interactive, simple to navigate site designed to assist young children who have experienced family violence and are entering safe house/refuge/shelter accommodation.
