The Duggars: Is Jim Bob Duggar the Quiverfull Puppet Master Arranging Weddings and Beddings?

Turns out that Joy Duggar's wedding happened this week with the almost secrecy of a military maneuver.  I'm guessing Jim Bob is trying his mightiest to make sure that all that family action is kept exclusively for the cameras of their TLC television show: Counting On. Must keep viewer eyeballs on the screen so they can keep raking in enough money to keep that enormous household functioning. Is Jim Bob manipulating his children to make this happen?What is the surprise is that 22 year old Joseph Duggar proposed at the wedding to his girlfriend Kendra Caldwell. People magazine, the almost official mouth piece of the Duggar family, shouted out that news the same day!The fact that this … [Read More...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Lori Alexander Says Men Reading Her Blog is NOT the Same as Teaching Them?

by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife - Am I Teaching Men Through Blogging?Editor's note: Who does Ms. Alexander think she is fooling with this about not answering or teaching men on her blog? We've all seen the interactions between Lori and some of her male commenters, like Trey, that seem inappropriate on many different levels, like a young girl reveling in the attentions of the Big Man on Campus.  Teaching comments from men she allows through are merely either echoing what she is saying, or a chorus of flattery, praise and pumping up her ego. Ken should likely monitor her online interactions with men much more closely if they really believe the dogma about women, foolish … [Read More...]

It’s All About Me, I Mean You, Jesus: Trolling For Jesus

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Life and Times of Bruce GerencserEditor's note: Decided to share this based upon the occasional Bible-spouting 'Come to Jesus' people that show up at NLQ and say similar things.  They don't understand they are proving exactly the point we are talking about in our recovery from spiritual abuse.Warning! Full bore Bruce Almighty snark ahead! … [Read More...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Childhood Vaccinations Cause Chronic Illnesses Like Diabetes?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - A Must ReadEditor's note: This is one of those horrid things that homeschooling Quiverfull people promote that exposes everyone to harm. In the unquoted bits Nancy says it's just no big deal if your children contract something like measles or mumps because they will heal from it. Oh yeah? Let's ask those folks who've lost a child to a common illness that there are available vaccines for. And no, Nancy, diabetes, Tourettes, allergies, anxiety and asthma are not caused by vaccination! She twists that recent measles outbreak at Disneyland by saying it was all adults who's vaccinations had worn off. … [Read More...]

Chapter 4 The Hidden Help Meet: Stand By Your Man: The 19th Century Woman

by Suzanne TitkemeyerAs we start our review of Chapter 4 of Debi Pearl's newest book I have to note that much of this longer chapter - A Force To Be Reckoned With - is lifted word by word from some of the posts at Debi's website 'No Greater Joy' I guess the Pearls are big into recycling.Again, the quotes from the dead preacher Denny Kensaton are in plain text and Debi's are in italics. But there's nothing worth directly quoting in this chapter said by Debi since it's a complete rehash of several posts on No Greater Joy. … [Read More...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Don’t ‘Pet’ Boys Because it is Cruel?

by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife - Being Chaste Before MarriageEditor's note: Today Lori is talking about a book published in 1946 and written by  John R. Rice titled "The Home: Courtship, Marriage and Children" The parts of this piece written by Lori are in regular text. The direct quotations from the book are in italics. I think this perfectly sums up neatly the hypocrisy of the theology of one Lori Alexander. Remember her book "The Power of the Transformed Wife" where she complained that the guys she dated in high school were always trying to cop a feel or make out with her and she was having none of that, yet here she claims no one instructed her that what she describes … [Read More...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Don’t Let Frat Rats Turn You Into a Whore or a Lesbian?

by Doug Wilson from Blog and Mablog - A Dutch UncleEditor's note: This is another piece on Doug's advice to that young woman who was molested by her father for years. Today it involves Doug's ideas of what harm college men will attempt to inflict on this supposedly fictional woman while they try to seduce her. Much of it reads like Wilson picked up all his ideas about college guys from movies like 'Animal House' and those 'American Pie' movies, both of which involved bonded groups of immature young guys either in a friend pack or as fraternity brothers, neither of which is always true of college men.Doug Wilson also refers to himself as a 'Dutch Uncle' in the first part. I had to … [Read More...]

Many young ladies ask questions on all sorts of different subjects brought up by the book. There was just one big problem, many of the answers stray into either the outright bad … [Read More...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Lori Alexander Thinks You Cannot Control Yourself?

by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife - Temperate In All ThingsEditor's note: Quicker than you can say 'Slim Fast' Lori is back on fat-shaming in a backhanded way. She makes it abundantly clear that she, Lori Alexander, thinks you cannot control yourself, no way, no how. She does not take into account little things like hot coffee helps when you're having bouts of asthma, that some folks have medical conditions that might require them to eat at regimented times when perhaps they aren't hungry or the other individualized needs of people that have nothing to do with being out of control or sin. Lori truly is morphing into an 'Aunt Lori' who would be perfectly in place on Hulu's … [Read More...]

NLQ Question of the Week: Why Are Christian Movies So Ridiculous?

Last night I discovered a link to a parody website The Babylon Bee that asks a question that's been plaguing me for years - why do Christian movies suck so hard? It seems like most of the time every aspect of the movie is just awful, from ridiculous dialogue through keeping Kirk Cameron gainfully employed while using heavy-handed extremes to hand out the message that's more pharisee-like than anything involving Christ. … [Read More...]
