I was home schooled with #AcceleratedChristianEducation as well- and it is hard to know where to begin. The years of isolation? The flat-out lies? The misogyny and gender roles and loch ness monster cited as proof evolution is a myth? #ChristianAltFacts
How about this fact about my homeschool- my "diploma" is absolutely meaningless.
Unaccredited, counts for nothing.

I was told by church members god had other plans for me than college- I'm a GIRL so have babies.


I try to stay positive, and look to the future and what I can do- but seriously, having been taught a bunch of lies as #homeschool that lead to a useless diploma has been a huge (avoidable) problem.

#ChristianAltFacts aren't "just words". They have real life consequences.
I was supposed to read the bible & material put out by the church's printing press.
That means that the first time I really dove into Shakespeare was as a result of reading a novel last year.

I once had my virginity compared to a donut with a bite taken out of it by a youth pastor illustrating how I was "damaged goods" and marriageable.
I was an underage abuse victim at the time.


If David hurt Bathsheba/lead to her husband's death, he was still a GREAT MAN who struggled with sin.

If a woman lusts- WITCH


David saw her bathing
Didn’t matter if she had a man
Didn’t matter what she meant
Where is my giant now
Strike him down
I was told I could join the military with my garbage #acceleratedchristianeducation homeschool diploma.
Didn't meet the height/weight requirements, but gave the recruitment officers something to laugh about. TOO SMALL for my last ditch college attempt. :/
One of the biggest #ChristianAltFacts I struggled with was being told I had to forgive those who abused me, even DURING the abuse because that is what god wanted.
Now I strongly believe you do NOT have to forgive abusers.
Talked about that in depth here:
