Due to further information, it was expedient to update the article on Doug Phillips and his resignation from Vision Forum and the closure of the same.

Please re-read this article, or read if for the first time, HERE.
This information is not being passed on to my readers as idle gossip. This man, Vision Forum Ministries and Inc., and the Biblical Patriarchy movement have had a considerable amount of influence in home schooling circles, family inclusive churches and many other areas.

Thou that makest thy boast of the law, through breaking the law dishonourest thou God? For the name of God is blasphemed among the Gentiles through you, as it is written.
