Quoting Quiverfull: Denying a Link to Lydia Shatz and Hana Grace Williams?

by Debi Pearl from No Greater Joy - A Call to StandEditor's note: We've all seen Michael Pearl's official statement about the deaths of children whose parents followed his child training book 'To Train Up A Child'. We featured it here along with Debi's hysterical calling for the death of those that opposed them prayer request last year. Here's Debi complaining about the press linking their ministry and advice to the deaths of children. Towards the end of the piece she even manages to say that people that oppose their training methods are like Hitler's supporters and she mentions Hitler right off the bat. Does anyone know what 'lesbian homeschool website' she keeps referencing in this … [Read more...]

What Are You Doing? – Chapter 2: Boys Just Wanna Have Sex

by Suzanne TitkemeyerAnd so we are back reading this book that is a stark look into the mind of marry them off young patriarch Vaughn Ohlman. The players are in place. Young Andrew Adamson is back at the park again, eating lunch this time instead of playing with his cell phone. He's joined by vaguely Middle Eastern buttinski Sakal Davidson. This is apparently post-date from the week before. Von states at the beginning of this chapter that the overarching theme is 'What should I be doing on a date that is God-honoring?' but that's not it. The main theme is that this boy wants to get married just so he can have sex finally, since, you know, it was established in chapter 1 that everyone is … [Read more...]

From Jehovah's Witness 2016 annual convention:Editor's note: Is anyone here a former Jehovah's Witness? This video crossed my Facebook feed this morning and just feels so awful and wrong, sort of like something the Pearls or others in Quiverfull might come up with to teach or discipline those children attempting to jump ship. What do you think? … [Read more...]

The Day a Yard Sale Cost the Church a Member

by Zsuzsanna Anderson from Are They All Yours?!?! - America's Unemployment CrisisEditor's note: Zsu sees evil government conspiracies in things like public schools and women being encouraged to work.

Examining some of the questions involving long held Quiverfull theology and life.While reading through Zsuzsanna Anderson's blog one thing jumps out again and again that I've noticed in most of the more conservative Evangelical and Quiverfull blogs - Fear of the federal government as some evil beast seeking to destroy Christian families.

Quoting Quiverfull: Your Mothering is a Political Action?

by Zsuzsanna Anderson from her blog Are They All Yours?!?! - Okay, I VotedEditor's note: Zsu is claiming that being a quiverfull mother and doing all the day to day things it takes to run a large family is somehow the same as 'voting'. Clearly she doesn't understand that actions you must take do not equal doing your civic duty. Interesting put-down of public school kids in her calling the school bus a 'fool bus'. Makes me wonder what her relationships with the neighbors are like and if her children ever get to play with the neighborhood kids. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Because Men Look at Other Women They Aren’t Wired for Monogamy?

by Larry Solomon from Biblical Gender Roles - How Should Christian Women Respond to Their Men Looking at Other Women Part 2Editor's note - It didn't take long for Larry to go from men looking at random breasts and legs walking down the street to stating that God designed men to be polygamy. Everything in Larry's theology revolves around servicing Larry's penis, like he's some sort of horny adolescent dealing with a hormone flood. Real mature. … [Read more...]
