Vyckie and Suzanne

by Suzanne Titkemeyer - Admin at No Longer QuiveringVyckie Garrison, the founder of this site No Longer Quivering, needs our help. Please consider donating to my friend Vyckie Garrison so she and the youngest five children can stay in their home.No Longer Quivering's  founder, Vyckie Garrison, needs (and, in my opinion, *deserves*) our help! In a recent Facebook chat conversation, Vyckie revealed to me that the home in which she is still raising 5 of her 7 children could soon be foreclosed on due to the financial fallout of her very messy divorce.

Burning Down The Woodshed

woodshed

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating the Dragons As my partner can attest to, one of the things that have stuck with me from growing up in the Deep South is my reliance on idiomatic Southern expressions. In my area, “trip to the woodshed” was the most commonly used euphemism for corporal punishment, and while the adults who used this term obviously meant it humorously, hearing it made me feel a little sick. “I’m going to take you out back to the woodshed!” conjured images, for me, of lashings and beatings and screaming boys and girls– but in that old-fashioned Disney way, with the too-red cheeks and too-round eyes and deep furrows in the mother’s brow and the animation sequ … [Read more...]

rayrice

by Voddie Baucham from his Facebook statusesFor those of you who don't follow the news or football or NFL let's summarize this: Ray Rice, running back for the Baltimore Ravens NFL team, beat his then fiancee and was suspended for a couple of games until the website TMZ posted the video of the incident.

Command v. Suggestion: “Wives, Submit!” and “Husbands, Love!”

submitlove

by Libby Anne cross posted from her blog Love, Joy, Feminism Any Christian Patriarchy advocate reading my post yesterday would surely have been shaking his or her head and saying “but it’s all about servant leadership, not a dictatorship!” or “women may be commanded to submit to their husbands, but God also commands men to love their wives!” These are the two go-to excuses made by defenders of Christian Patriarchy, who argue that those men who are dictatorial and domineering simply aren’t doing it right. … [Read more...]

by Suzanne Titkemeyer cross posted from her blog True Love Doesn't RapeWe've written and posted too many times here at NLQ about TLC's Duggar family, the stars of "19 Kids & Counting".  You can almost tell how well or not so well the show is doing in the ratings and when the premiere of the new season is by the flood of Duggar family related news/gossip that floods the internet. 'The Duggars stop for bagels!' or 'The Duggar Family says all drag queens need Jesus!' Ridiculous minutia everywhere to keep people talking about the show and the Duggars so all that sweet, sweet cash will keep coming on in like manna to TLC and the Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar compound.Last season there … [Read more...]
