At Mercy Multiplied, troubled young women come to believe their mental-health counselors speak for God.
"Today, the sixth step in Alcorn’s seven-step counseling model is called Freedom From Oppression—but before 2009, it was called “Demonic Oppression,” according to three former residents. Mercy changed the name shortly after administrators at Mercy-branded facilities in Australia were found to have stolen residents’ welfare checks and local papers reported that employees at these homes were practicing exorcisms."
"Mercy put this disclaimer on its website: “Mercy Ministries does not practice Recovered Memory Therapy.” This past October, when the organization rebranded itself as Mercy Multiplied, the disclaimer disappeared."

Live free or die. | MetaFilter #6389216
user poffin boffin describes domestic American politics of the mid-2010s, I note for relaying to future generations: "Honestly I don't give a single fuck if either Clinton or Sanders fulfill any of their campaign promises so long as in the next 8 years they just build on what Obama has already done wrt healthcare and prevent any fucking woman-loathing white supremacists from giving us new SCOTUS nominations.
my bar is as low as it's gonna get folks, the other choices literally involve armbands for muslims and gay latino death camps and wire hanger abortions nationwide and a sentient ham in a wig cheering a crowd of people beating up a black man live on tv"

Rabies Made Me The Socialist I Am Today | The Billfold
"My desire to briefly dip into universal healthcare for the socialist badge it would emblazon on my chest forever was being lengthened into a trial. However, I quickly did the arithmetic and decided being alive was worth the six, hour-long trips to this distant hospital. I was earning my socialist stripes the hard way. To pile on, the assistant then told me that he couldn’t find the rabies antidote and couldn’t recall the last time anyone in Denmark was administered one. He assured me that he would have some delivered in two days, and instructed me to not die until then."

"You Don't Give a Shit About Women Living in Virginia!" | Mother Jones
"Often called 'targeted regulation of abortion providers,' or 'TRAP' laws, these rules focus specifically on abortion providers with the intent, reproductive rights advocates say, of making it extremely difficult for clinics to operate."

Tiger Beatdown › Guess What? Shaming People For Being Fat Doesn’t Magically Make Them Thin!
"On the surface, encouraging people of all ages to eat more fresh food and exercise in safe and enjoyable ways if possible seems like generally sound advice. It would be better if it came with a side of actually enabling those activities, like addressing huge disparities in the food system and providing children with safe places to get outdoors and move around. This information, however, is usually delivered alone, and in this heavyhanded shaming format, one which primarily sets up fat people as targets of bullying and abuse; visitors to ‘Habit Heroes’ would learn that fat is your own fault and that fat people are bad, rather than learning more about the complex social, dietary, genetic, and other factors involved in weight. They would also learn that it’s acceptable to target fat people for commentary and ‘advice’ because it would be ‘for their own good.’ And they wouldn’t learn about the difficulties involved in accessing fresh food and exercise."
