Is a 34 Year Old Murder Case Connected to New Bethany Home for Girls?

Image from LSU Faces - A composite drawing from LSU FACES Laboratory shows what investigators believe a woman found dead on Jan. 28, 1981, may have looked like before she was stabbed to death four to six weeks before her body was located in a wooded area in east-central Bossier Parish.

Quoting Quiverfull: No Rest For the Weary?

quotingquiverfull

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - God Makes You Strong For The JobEditor's note: Wow, now that is some shaming/blaming for those who are sick and exhausted! Where in the Bible does it state that you have to have a perfectly cleaned home and scrubbed perfect children? Guess it's easier to do when you have a passel of adopted kids from another country to behave like servants. Oh, that's right, those adopted kids disappeared without much of a trace. … [Read more...]

Reflections of an Unintentionally Undercover Atheist

Image from Kaleesha Williams.com

by Kaleesha Williams from her blog The Lost (And Found) Mind of Kaleesha Williams I went to the dentist earlier this week.  I’ve only been to this office once, but I like the people, they’re friendly.  Having taken the children to a dentist in a nearby town and getting my oldest into an orthodontist up near St. Louis I’ve come to the conclusion that people in and around the dental profession are some of the friendliest, sweetest-natured professionals in the world.  I’m told they have to be because so many people hate dentists.  But that’s not what I want to talk about today. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Speak God’s Word All the Time or Sin?

quotingquiverfull

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - We Dare Not Keep Our Mouths ShutEditor's note: If you take all of Nancy's various advice you'd be so confused at this point considering many of her postings tell us to stay sweet and keep your mouth shut. Apparently we're allowed to speak only when it involves scripture. The way the one sentence is worded makes it seem that we're supposed to put our mouths into our children's mouths. So confused here. … [Read more...]

by Kelly Crawford of Generation Cedar on Raising Homemakers - What You Need To Know About the 'Virtuous' WomanEditor's note: Have you ever noticed how many of the cultural enforcers of Quiverfull, like Nancy Campbell, Debi Pearl and Kelly Crawford have to expend so much cyber ink on telling their followers to stop bitching, suck it up and be stoically perfect or else?

How in the World Did I Change my Mind?

Image by Samantha Field Defeating The Dragons

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating The Dragons If you’ve been here for any length of time you should be pretty well aware of that fact that I grew up in Christian fundamentalism. It was everything, my entire world, for the bulk of the aware-of-Jesus-and-could-understand-sermons portion of my life. And then I grew up and decided that I didn’t agree with … well, pretty much all of it. Except for the God and Jesus part, which even believing in he/she/they was a struggle for a few years. A while after I’d decided well, I think I’m still a Christian but what does that even mean I started a blog to sort it all out and here we are. … [Read more...]

Hypocrisy – NLQ Book Review

bookreview

by Suzanne TitkemeyerOne of the interesting things that happens here at NLQ is that I get approached on a regular basis to do book reviews. If the book has anything to do with recovery from fundamentalism or the quiverfull movement and I'm not super pressed for time I'll do the occasional book review. Sometimes I'll read the book and decide it really isn't something that applies to what we are all about at NLQ.Last week I was asked to write a review for 'Hypocrisy' by Leilyn Fields Mac. The only information I could find about the book was a short blurb at Amazon: … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: What Does That Love Look Like Exactly?

quotingquiverfull

by John Piper of Desiring God and The Council on Biblical Manhood & Womanhood as quoted at Ladies Against Feminism - Christian Love and Putting on ChristEditor's note: For a people that constantly brag about love I'm not seeing it at all. We do get to witness hate, discrimination, racism, pressure to conform, and a great many other things that don't exactly ooze love. I see a lot of hypocrisy in this statement. What do you think dear readers? … [Read more...]

What I Found When I Left the Box

Image by Bruce Gerencser used with permission

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Life and Times of Bruce Gerencser reposted from 2010 Yesterday, I wrote a post titled The Danger of Being In a Box and Why It All Makes Sense When You Are in a Box.  A commenter of Reddit asked if I would elaborate on:But is wasn’t. My mind was filled with thoughts of all the wonders I found outside the box. Things that those in my box said were bad for me; things that they were sure would ruin me. They told me that the box was all I needed. They feared I was becoming a wanderlust.And they were right. I wandered once again outside the box, and just like before I fell down the slope of the slippery hill. This happened to me many times … [Read more...]
