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...]

Encouraging Your Husband – Part 3 Love Notes

Some of the stories I'm skipping in this chapter seem like a short hop/skip/jump from acting like either an obsessional stalker or a pre-teen with a celebrity crush, not mature grown married women. This one seems similarly unhinged. … [Read More...]

Part 1 – Trey Orders You to Provide Marital Sex on Demand?

by Trey, infamous toxic commenter, at Lori Alexander's The Transformed Wife - Making it Easy For Your Husband to Not LustEditor's note: I swore after I posted about cheating husbands and 16 year old brides this week from Lori's site that I would refrain from quoting her the rest of the week. That was before I saw her more ridiculous shameful male poster (teaching men, are you Lori?) was given his own bully-pulpit. He's claiming that women giving sex upon demand, enthusiastically in exactly whatever fashion  the Mister decides is the only way to turn off male lust. … [Read More...]

The Preacher and His TV

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Life and Times of Bruce GerencserIn the 1960s, when I was a child, my Dad would drop my siblings and me off at the Bryan Theater so we could watch the 25-cent Saturday afternoon matinee. But somewhere in my primary school years, going to movies became unacceptable. From that point forward, outside of attending a drive-in movie one time at age 18, I didn’t go to a movie theater again until I was in my late 30s.  As a Christian, I believed that going to or renting movies was supporting Hollywood, an institution that I considered a den of iniquity. … [Read More...]

Quoting Quiverfull: If He Cheats Stay and Pray?

by Robin Jennifer at Lori Alexander's The Transformed Wife - To the Warrior Wives of Straying HusbandsEditor's note: I guess there are only so many ways that Lori can state that feminists are evil, modesty is important and you are not allowed to have needs, so now she's relying a couple of times a week on guest writers. Now it's being pushed that you must stay with a cheating spouse and pray for him? This is another one of those issues that is deeply personal, like birth control, or working, that might work for some individuals but not for everyone. … [Read More...]
