Before You Meet Prince Charming: Part 2 Chapter 10

by Mel cross posted from her blog When Cows and Kids Collide All quotes from ‘Before You Meet Prince Charming’ by Sarah Mally are in blue text. This section of Chapter Ten is where Sarah Mally tries her hand at explaining why Emotional Purity (called Emo-Pure by me) is a concept that all people should follow.  I will allow you to draw your own judgements on how well she sells the concepts.

Quoting Quiverfull: Too Much Time in Peer Groups Bad For Children

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy – Uncommon Common Sense Editor’s note: Michael makes a number of suspicious claims on this article on parenting. While it is harder to parent when you have either a substandard parent, or an abusive parent because there’s no one to learn it from it’s not as impossible as Mr. Pearl describes. (more…) Read more

Questioning the Pearls – Can Women Teach or Not?

One of the Pearls regular readers is asking about the seeming contradiction in some of Michael Pearl’s writing on the authority of women to teach. For well over a year we’ve been running a second Answering ‘Preparing To Be A Help Meet’ on Sundays, filled with questions by young ladies trying to get ready for marriage. Since we’ve run through many of the questions on their site it’s time to shift Sundays to something else, like perhaps examining the cornucopia… Read more

Quoting Quiverfull: God Never Said Adam and Steve

by Doug Wilson from Blog and Mablog – Two Dudes on a Wedding Cake Editor’s note: This piece has it all, bashing divorced people, bashing those not practicing man-on-top-get-it-over-with-quick straight heterosexuality and lots of bashing of gays. This is some rancid word salad from Doug’s fictitious letter with a homosexual Christian. Doug should have no say in what happens in the bedrooms of other folks! (more…) Read more

The Bible Says No One Does Good – Not No One

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Life and Times of Bruce Gerencser Editor’s note: This is the same quote shared this week by Michelle Lesley on Quoting Quiverfull. Saw the quote on Bruce’s page, went over to Lesley’s blog and read the entire piece. Horrid. Good find Bruce! I recently posted an excerpt from an article written by Michelle Lesley detailing her view of the human condition. According to Lesley, humans — Christian and unbeliever alike — are: (more…) Read more

Quoting Quiverfull: Sinful Women Seeking Divorce?

by Ken Alexander from his wife’s blog The Transformed Wife on post we quoted yesterday – Strange Women Screen caps of Ken’s reaction to divorced ladies teaching Sunday School and any blame placed on men for divorce. So much awful and then Trey, possible Ken sockpuppet, pops up to add fuel to the fire. Trigger warnings galore! Not safe for life, or marriage. (more…) Read more

Quoting Quiverfull: Strange Women?

by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife – Beware of Strange Women Editor’s note: The title of Lori’s post involves ‘strange women’, but the post itself is all about what a woman should not do to prevent a divorce and blaming women for divorce. In the last small unquoted bit Lori finally mentions strange women as in to pray and fight for your husband if he strays into the arms and other parts of a strange woman. Also snipped out… Read more

Quoting Quiverfull: Having Your Own Checking Account is a Sin?

by John MacArthur from Grace in You – God’s Pattern For Wives Editor’s note: Lori Alexander is quoting this piece yesterday that was written about women in the 1990s, claiming it holds true today. All I can say is that this is nothing but a bunch of crazy blaming and shaming, right down to a list of sins of modern women. This is the first I’ve heard of having a separate checking account even being sinful. (more…) Read more

Small-Breasted Biddies – Doug Wilson Word Salad

by Doug Wilson of Blog and Mablog – A Tether Ball in a Tornado Editor’s note: While this has little to do with the Quiverfull life it’s another example of pastors speaking out in disrespectful ways with disgusting words about things that have literally nothing to do with their sphere of influence. I am sure many of you saw the interview on CNN by Brooke Baldwin of Fox Sports Clay Travis. Clay used the word ‘Boobs’, Brooke objected that it… Read more

Quoting Quiverfull: You’re a Dirty, Rotten, Stinking Sinner?

by Michelle Lesley from Give Me My Church Ladies – You’re Not Awesome….and You Know it Editor’s note: There is no greater internalized message in many Quiverfull, Fundamentalist, Evangelical and CPM groups than this – you are worthless. Just about every women I encountered across my old faith life believed this while acting just the opposite. Time and time again this horrible, self-esteem destroying bedrock belief would come bubbling out. It’s toxic and it’s not true. Time to kill this… Read more
