Quoting Quiverfull: Blaming Political Losses on You Not Having Enough Babies?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - God Does Not Change His Eternal PlansEditor's note: So it sounds like Nancy is blaming the lack of people being Quiverfull for the fact that very few Teaparty types get elected to office. Get busy cranking out those Godly children so the Quiverfull bunch can easily overwhelm the evul liburuls in the voting booths. Remind me again where it says that Christians are supposed to hijack the political system in order to have their way? … [Read more...]

Recognizing Sexual Abuse in Children

by Suzanne TitkemeyerOne thing that has happened as a result of the revelations of sexual abuse by Quiverfull super star Josh Duggar is that it has pushed the taboo subject of the sexual abuse of children into the spotlight, engendering a number of conversations on what must happen to expose it, how it should be handled and getting help for the survivors. Those are all great things to consider, that's for sure.I wish there was some way to let his victims know that many of us stand in support of them and their journeys towards healing. Many media outlets have made this about Josh, not being supportive of his victims. That much was evident from the very sloppy redacting of victim … [Read more...]

But you push forward and make it work, or go to marriage counseling.  But there's a big difference between seasons of marriage and if you are married to someone who is genuinely cruel all of the … [Read more...]

What TLC’s Duggar Family and Charlie Manson’s The Family Have in Common

by Suzanne TitkemeyerLately I've taken to watching NBC's new show "Aquarius" It's set roughly in 1967-1968 time frame and deals with the Manson Family's early years. Plus it's a good solid cop procedural, and you know how I love a cop procedural show. The two lead cops are a straight-laced 1950s style cop named Hodiak and his younger hippie-esque counterpart Shafe. And yes, some of the stories are mixed up with law enforcement and the Manson Family. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 5 – Have Sex With Me Or Else?

by Biblical Gender Roles from BiblicalGenderRoles.com – 8 Steps to Confront Your Wife’s Sexual RefusalEditor's note: And now we approach the worst part of the entire piece, a list of how to force your wife to have sex with you. Many of these steps fall under a label we call "Economic Abuse" here. His approach would be recognized as abusive by more people.  Any man that tries these things on you in order to control you is someone you should not be with. Step 2 would end the marriage for me, before we got to the old 'control her with money' thing. This whole list is shameful and not Christian. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 4: Have Sex With Me Or Else?

by Biblical Gender Roles from BiblicalGenderRoles.com – 8 Steps to Confront Your Wife’s Sexual RefusalEditor's note:  He's still banging on and on like an out of control gong about how the wife is sinning without the slightest clue that what he's doing is purely awful on every level. Not much love for his wife like the love Christ had for the church is there? How'd you like to be this man's live in nookie with his insistence that you give in to him at every whim? Sounds dreadful. His little aside that the man needs to make sure he's not sinning just seems for show, not because he genuinely feels like he's sinned. He's blind to any sin of his own if he advocates treating a wife like this. … [Read more...]

Created To Need A Help Meet: Part 3 How Do I Need Thee? (Michael Confuses Me)

by Aletha cross posted from her blog Yllom Mormonp 38-41 Yes, we are still learning about the ways men need women. I know you're excited, so let's jump right in. Text, as always, is in purple. I Need Her to Balance Me EmotionallyAgain, we guys don't like to admit that we are emotional beings. It is quite obvious that the gals are 90% emotion and 10% adulterated reason. We fellows pride ourselves on being logical and objective. But keep in mind that anger is an emotion. Irritability and grouchiness are emotions. Men are just as emotional as women: we just have a male pride that will not let us publicly express weakness or vulnerability. I am not suggesting that there is anything … [Read more...]
