Quoting Quiverfull: Making Hubby Happy?

by Deborah from Growing in His Grace - Possessing Your Husband's Full ConfidenceEditor's note: We have to take a break from Lori Alexander because it's becoming sort of cruel to keep focusing on someone who clearly has issues and repeats those issues. This is one of many Titus 2 Evangelical bloggers I discovered recently. She's discussing all the things you have to do as a good wife to keep your man happy. This list seems ridiculously unnecessary to me and more concerned with how she appears to others than how she actually is, what do you think? … [Read More...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Women Working Cause Divorce?

by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife - Not One Bible Verse Instructs Women to Have CareersEditor's note: In the unquoted bits Lori orders those unmarried or widowed to stay home, expecting someone else to provide their financial support. This is rich considering Lori comes across as someone that would scream to the heavens if an unmarried or widowed woman signed up for a government support program. Her ideas are grounded in the misinterpretation of the Bible, just like always.Her writings always read like someone who completely hates all other women. … [Read More...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Lori Alexander’s Toxic Dangerous Depression Advice

by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife - Freedom From DepressionEditor's note: Spoken like someone that has no real idea what factors drive depression or how to overcome it. This is the dangerous, toxic, harmful Evangelical party line on depression that subtly, and sometimes directly, says that people with depression caused their own depression. Suspiciously there are only two comments on this post at Lori's site. The last time she shared her horrific ideas about depression there were several people struggling with depression and suicidal thoughts that posted in the comments. She was ugly to them before completely erasing their comments. No matter what she claims there are screen … [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 … [Read More...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Satan Wants Your Marriage to Fail?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Batten Down the Hatches!Editor's note: Nancy is working on the fear-mongering hard here, implying that your children will only turn out right if mom and dad love each other the way she thinks that they should. Yawn. She also has another post up right now where she calls the Pope the Antichrist. … [Read More...]

Before You Meet Prince Charming Part 1 Chapter 9

by Mel cross posted from her blog When Cows and Kids CollideAll quotes from Sarah Mally's book 'Before You Meet Prince Charming' in blue text.This chapter has the smooth title of "Dreams Must Die".  The book has been uniformly depressing since the Princess' most intimate relationship is with the Alligator who lives in moat who is trying to get her to have a life.  I don't even want to know how much worse this can get. … [Read More...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Does Anyone Ever Really Argue Constantly With Their Husbands?

by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife - Good or Brawling Wife: It's Your ChoiceEditor's note: Here we are again with Lori claiming that anyone not living like her is an uncontrolled violent hater and brawling women. I dispute that. I think the type of woman she is describing here is rare indeed, no matter what religion they follow. The only ones I've seen like this are the super frustrated, like Lori admits she was for many years. Brawling means to quarrel. God does not want us to quarrel. He wants us to be at peace with each other and this is why He designed for the man to be the head over his wife and the wife to submit to her husband. When couples are following His prescription … [Read More...]

Questioning the Pearls – Stay With Your Abusive Husband

I might have shared this in the past but in light of all the recent toxic stay with an abuser advice given out by Lori Alexander and others it is time to remind everyone anew that this is a culture that orders abused wives to stay in that situation.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 of probably fake emails and questions that Michael and Debi Pearl of No Greater Joy post on their website and the possibly poisonou … [Read More...]

Quoting Quiverful: Jane Austen Teaches How Christian Marriage Should Be?

by Carolyn Moynihan from Mercator.net as cited by Ladies Against Feminism - Jane Austen's Marriage ChallengeEditor's note: After the cultural angst of Bruce Gerencser's love of television this piece from LAF illustrates two things perfectly. 1 - The revisionist history/misunderstanding of all that was inherent in Austen's writings on marriage and courtship and 2 - their notions that some culture is Godly, but the rest of popular culture is somehow 'evil'. This piece misses many of the main points in Austen's ideas on marriage and shame/blames those who like "Game of Thrones". GoT has nothing to do with the main theme of the article so it's just gratuitous shaming. No, LAF, the main idea … [Read More...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Is Pregnancy Really a Curse?

by Zsuzsanna Anderson of Are They All Yours?!? - New Baby on the WayEditor's note: Interesting that Zsuzsanna seems to think that pregnancy and child birth are part of the curse mentioned after the fall of Adam and Eve and not the Best. Thing. Ever that Nancy Campbell and the other female cultural enforcers promote.Wishing her the best. She looks better and more healthy in the photo she recently posted for the first time in years. She's seemed so unhealthy looking for a long time now. … [Read More...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Anger Not Allowed in Women?

by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife - Too Many Angry WivesEditor's note: You have to go check out the insane graphic Lori made for this post. The woman it actually looks insane or demon-possessed more than angry. Being angry does not always mean yelling, screaming, tormenting others, or lashing out, no matter what she claims. Not everyone reacts the same way, but yet again Lori repeats her mantra that older women like her must teach younger women to never be angry with their husbands. It is possible to be angry and not react in a damaging or demeaning way towards those who may have provoked it. It's called maturity. … [Read More...]

Part 2 – Trey Orders You to Provide Marital Sex on Demand?

by Ken Alexander, busy rubber-stamping the words of Trey, infamous toxic commenter, at Lori Alexander’s The Transformed Wife – Making it Easy For Your Husband to Not LustEditor's note: Interesting, I almost thought this was written by Trey. It does seem that some of the same syntax and ideas are shared equally between 'Trey' and Ken. What do you think? Is 'Trey' a sock-puppet for Ken? One thing I do know, having sex daily does not "vaccinate" anyone against porn or affairs. Wishful thinking. Dream on, Ken, dream on.Trey is speaking of an important Biblical truth that has been lost in many Christian marriages. Regular intimacy two to three times a week is God’s prescription to vacci … [Read More...]
