Quoting Quiverfull: Heart Attacks Are ‘God’s Blessings?’

by Wally Austin from Trish Ramos blog Fish With Trish - The Blessings of a Heart AttackEditor's note: I can't even...errr.. umm... this is one of the worst types of thinking that is common in quiverfull evangelical extremism. First they pressure you to never to do the doctor, but if you fall ill, extremely ill, it's either because God is trying to teach you something or because you have unconfessed sin in your life or the wrong attitudes. Let's get something straight, a loving father is never going to strike down a beloved child with pain and illness to teach them a lesson. Would you do it to one of your children? Nope. … [Read more...]

Right-wing Christian ‘expert’ on feminism insists that submitting to marital rape makes Jesus happy

by No Longer Quivering founder Vyckie Garrison as published this weekend at Raw StoryPLEASE NOTE: This article references a Christian fundamentalist blog post which is extremely offensive! Content warnings: descriptions of marital rape, sexual and emotional wife abuse, spiritual abuse, as well as hard core rape apology and victim blaming via “Biblical Gender Roles.”As a former Quiverfull fundamentalist Christian in the business of rescuing women from religious subjugation and abuse, very little biblically-justified misogyny shocks or surprises me, but a recent post by the cowardly Patriarch who writes anonymously on a site called “Biblical Gender Roles,” is too abhorrent to ignore. … [Read more...]

Why I Changed My Mind About Marriage Equality

by Lana Hope cross posted from her blog Wide Open GroundAround three years ago I changed my mind about LGBT individuals and their right to marry. I grew up in a family who did not really acknowledge or mention gays. I had no idea gays even existed until a guy in our homeschool group married someone whose mother was lesbian, which prompted me to look up the word in the dictionary. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Steven and Zsuzsanna Anderson Love Story?

by Stephen R Nichols of Regency Church as posting on Steven L Anderson's blog - Response to Stephen R. Nichols False AllegationsEditor's note: This post of Anderson's is a perfect example of internecine bickering, blaming and hate that seems to be more rampant in fundamentalist churches than anywhere else in the world. Be sure and read the full posting on Anderson's blog to witness all the sniping and slapping full bore. I did find Nichol's description of how Steven and Zsuzsanna's meeting and nuptials interesting. I guess it shows there is someone out there for everyone and at least he didn't force Zsu to go crabbing over and over on their honeymoon like someone we could mention … [Read more...]

Answering “Preparing To Be A Help Meet” – Totally Confused

Another installment of giving better answers to the questions asked at Debi Pearl’s site message board for the book ‘Preparing To Be A Help Meet’. Many young ladies ask questions on all sorts of different subjects brought up by the book.

Here’s what we’re going to be doing here at NLQ. Every week, once or twice a week, I’ll be posting up one of the questions from the message board and ask you, our readers, to answer that poor soul’s question in a way that is logical, rational and the best possible solution, in other words 18 … [Read more...]

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: You Owe Your Husband Sex No Matter What?

by Biblical Gender Roles from Biblical Gender Roles - Is My Husband Raping Me?Trigger warning for rape culture justifications and excusing sexual abuseEditor's note: If you have to actually ask that question then usually the answer is yes. Gross disgusting everything is always about sex Mr. Biblical Gender Roles is answering a long comment some poor woman who's husband has frequent, painful and unwanted sex with her against her will. Basically the rest of his long, l-o-n-g answer to this woman is that her husband is within his rights to take sex from her no matter what the circumstances, including him blaming women for having ideas from 'Satan' that men have to earn their sexy fun … [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...]
