Quoting Quiverfull: God’s ‘Rights’ Are The Only ‘Rights’ That Matter?

by Biblical Gender Roles from Biblical Gender Roles.Com - Biblical Human Rights vs. American Human RightsEditor's note: There is just so much sheer awfulness here it's hard to pick out the worst part to quote so I'm using his summation. But be sure to read the entire blog posting. He's even claiming because slavery was mentioned in the Bible that it's a-okay for humans to own other humans as slaves. He doesn't seem to realize that if you don't believe the Bible is true, then you don't believe in those spelled out 'Biblical Rights' and our government will not force you to believe. Imagine how horrible if would be with guys like this seized government power, repealed the seperation of … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: 100 Million Years From Now?

by Bethany Baird from Girl Defined - Where Will You Be 100 Million Years From Today?Editor's note: Uh, Bethany, I believe all of us will be DEAD 100 million years from now. Likely the earth will no longer exist, particularly if we keep trying it like a garbage dump. On a serious note one of the awkward segues into a salvation call I've seen in a long time. Starting with a little Muslim blaming before sliding into the 'but.. but.. I thought I would be young and live forever' and the cold, hard realization that everyone dies. Not posting her long screed begging people to pray the sinners prayer or speculating on how some aren't sure of their salvation. Awkward salvation calls instead of … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Panic Attacks Happen Because You Don’t Trust God?

by Savabrown14 from Loved By I Am - An Anxious HeartEditor's note: This is much the same as the poison being spread by Tim LaHaye in his book "How To Win Over Depression" that SASBN member Samantha Field was reviewing. Instead of admitting or realizing that anxiety, fear and panic can happen because of circumstances or even the chemical load in your own brain and getting professional help dealing with your feelings it's always 'You are not trusting God.' Yeah I am, I'm trusting God created psychologists and therapists plus medicine if it's needed. How is that wrong? … [Read more...]

In Which I Am Grateful For My Loss

by Living Liminal cross posted from her blog Living LiminalThis past week, with social media bristling with the noise and reaction to the American Supreme Court's decision regarding same sex marriage, my strongest emotional response has been one of gratitude for being hounded from the IC (institutional church).That might sound strange... but I can explain.You see, I spent most of my life in the IC and it taught me well. It taught me that there was a right way to think and a wrong way. It taught me that there was an acceptable way to behave and an unacceptable way. Most of … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: The Bible Says Men Own Women?

by Biblical Gender Roles from Biblical Gender Roles.com - Does the Bible teach the concept of "Human Property"?Editor's note: Before anyone asks: No, this is not a parody or a site like 'The Onion' this is real! This guy is really borderline Mens Rights Activists (MRA) with culture reinforcement from the Bible. Slavery hasn't been the law of the land for over 160 years now but you'd never know it from his statements. Women and children are owned by the husband/father/patriarch according to this guy. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 21 – Homeschoolers Embracing The World?

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - Jumping Ship Part 4Editor's note: More from Michael on the joys of play and his childhood. What any of this has to do with keeping homeschoolers from running away from your family boat screaming I can only guess since Michael hasn't gotten to the part where he reverses himself and pounds the blaming and guilt into the parents reading this pap. He says only that you must play with your children. I have a feeling something odd, toxic and ooky is coming up soon. … [Read more...]
