Quoting Quiverfull: Patriarchy Is Not A Dirty Word?

by Kelly Crawford from Generation Cedar – Tired of Patriarchy’s Bad Rap

Edited to add: Kelly Crawford has pulled down the post off her blog but R.L. Stollar over at Homeschoolers Anonymous has a PDF file of Kelly’s original post. So what is Kelly afraid of?

Patriarchy is not “man-control”, it’s God control. And you see, that’s just the problem everybody has with it. Frankly, in this 21st century “me world”, we don’t want anyone in control. Even us Christians. So we take God’s Word and not only reject it, but we make up our own deviated definitions about it and then call those who still hold to its simple truth “cult members.”

QUOTING QUIVERFULL is a regular feature of NLQ – we present the actual words of noted Quiverfull leaders and ask our readers: What do you think? Agree? Disagree? This is the place to state your opinion. Please, let’s keep it respectful – but at the same time, we encourage readers to examine the ideas of Quiverfull honestly and thoughtfully.
