Questioning the Pearls: Gender Role Reversals?

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 poisonous answers they give. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull – Wives Throw Temper Tantrums?

by Ken Alexander on his wife Lori's blog The Transformed Wife - One Long Temper TantrumEditor's note: Notice as he speaks about counseling the husband of a 'bitter' wife that not once does he say one thing about how the husband might possibly be failing in his job of being a husband. Oh no, it's all about demonizing the wife and coming up with dehumanizing phrasing to reduce women to something less than men, less human and more child like. Hate just drips off both Lori and Ken, certainly no love, mercy or compassion. Toxic advice from toxic people just leads to the creation of more toxic people. … [Read more...]

Part 1 Chapter 7 – Before You Meet Prince Charming

by Mel cross posted from her blog When Cows and Kids CollideAll quotations from the book in blue text.This chapter promises to show us how parents can help young women during their wait for Prince Charming.  I'm skeptical about this chapter since the King and Queen have provided precious little support or help to their daughter so far in the book. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull – Lori Alexander Modesty Police?

by Lori Alexander on Facebook and on Things Godly Women Say - Spanking ThongsEditor's note: You may notice it's been a few days since there was a posting. I am right in the middle of my international move to Costa Rica and have driving down to the New Orleans area to visit relatives and ship my car from the port of New Orleans. Postings may be spotty and not as frequently until after I get settled. I fly out on the 23rd and  none of my elderly relatives here in South Louisiana have wifi, or any internet. I've haven't forgotten you or this place, I'm just in transition. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Swedish Heavy Metal Greatest Threat to Christians Ever?

by Kevin Swanson from Generations Radio - Swedish Satanic Metal BandsEditor's note: A good example of a ridiculous tendency to major on the minors in QF. Instead of dealing with real problems, like the rampant violent in society, or hunger, or doing any of the things Jesus said to do Kevin Swanson chooses to get very worked up over the antics of a band halfway across the world. This is from the promo for yesterday's show. … [Read more...]

‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ isn’t a Strawman, and Here’s Proof

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog SamanthaPField.comQuick update: I took a month off after seminary classes ended, and then I had to play catch-up with some of the volunteer work I’ve been doing since the election. That is finally starting to become a manageable about of work, so hopefully starting next week we can get back to regular blog updates!This was a post I wrote for Relevant a while ago, but they have decided not to publish it (incidentally, the post they did publish was written by a man I dated at Liberty. It’s … insipid, unsurprisingly). The below only covers the first four episodes of The Handmaid’s Tale, since those were the only ones available when I wrote it. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Make Sure Your Children Are Better Trained Than Muslim Children?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Blessed Eyes and EarsEditor's note: Nancy is speaking of a book she recently read by a Muslim who converted to Christianity. It's "Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus" by Nabeel Qureshi. Nancy seems surprised that Islam has a family devotions component. Surprised she was open to reading this book considering a big cornerstone of Nancy's teachings on Quiverfull is the need to outbreed the Muslims before they take over the world. She usually hates anyone she considers a 'scary brown person'. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Feminism is a Cult?

by Larry Solomon of Biblical Gender Roles - Feminism: The Return of Sin to EdenEditor's note: Larry's still whining that women should not have equal rights with men because Bible, and still showing how little he knows of historical context and culture. As usual we're not linking directly to Larry because he rejoices over his hit numbers and we have no desire to ever inflate his enormous ego. … [Read more...]

Doug Wilson Rushes to Blame All Liberals For Virginia Shooting This Morning

Select quotes from Doug Wilson's blog Blog and Mablog complete with blaming all liberals for the tragic shooting in Alexandria, Virginia this morning in a piece nastily titled - The Ratty Goodwill Dress Tops it OffEditor's note: This is just unacceptable, vile and illustrative of those like Wilson being part of the problem that lead to Louisiana's Steve Scalise being gunned down this morning. I've been glued to the coverage all day because this isn't too far from us, we're on the edge of Northern Virginia with friends, family and yes, an NLQ writer or two living in the Alexandria/Fairfax region. Even Trump called for unity and sympathy for those involved. So what does Doug do? Blame … [Read more...]

Dear Abuse Victim – Ignore Those That Try to Hold Me Accountable

by Doug Wilson from Blog and Mablog - Into the Pavilions of GodEditor's note: Wilson has it backwards I think, telling this supposedly fictional sexual abuse victim to ignore anyone that does not approve of his words. No, sorry Doug, but much of your advice, even judged on a Biblical standard, is just more abuse laid upon a survivor of abuse. … [Read more...]
