Quoting Quiverfull: Part 4 – Child Extortionists?

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - Twinkie TwerpEditor's note: Cannot believe anyone thinks that the only way to get rid of sugar addiction in a child or a cranky demand for a snack is to pull out a quarter inch piece of plumbing line and whack the child hard with it. The sad thing is that there are many people in the Quiverfull movement that follow Michael Pearl's harmful child training advice. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 3 – Child Extortionists?

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - Twinkie TwerpEditor's note: And we get to the heart of the nasty matter - apply the spanking, but only after being emotionally cruel to the child. Beat your child until his will is broken. Unless he is able to name-call a child something insulting followed by beating the child with a piece of plumbing pipe Mr. Pearl isn't happy … [Read more...]

Answering ‘Preparing To Be A Help Meet’ – Are Feelings Of Love Just Hormones?

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. There was just one big problem, many of the answers stray into either the outright bad and emotionally unhealthy to dangerous. Yes, typical Debi Pearl borderline abusive. 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: Part 2 – Child Extortionists?

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - Twinkie TwerpsEditor's note: Please excuse the lateness of this piece. I am traveling again and experiencing indifferent internet at various places.More of Michael Pearl mistaking normal childhood behavior and needs for sin and manipulation. It's horribly telling that Michael considers a child asking for food more of a 'character development' issue than what it likely is, a need, either physical or emotional, that must be met. Why the mother did not redirect the child by doing something like involving him in helping her prepare a snack for all the children by cutting the twinkie into equal portions and possibly adding items? There are so many … [Read more...]

Two Male Patrick Henry College Students Blame Females For Their Lust

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Life and Times of Bruce GerencserAs I have shared before, Evangelical young men are taught that they are weak, pathetic creatures easily led astray by mere exposure to too much female flesh. A little cleavage or a tight blouse has led many an Evangelical man to the slaughter.  Instead of being taught to own and control their sexuality, many Evangelical men whine, moan, and complain about women “tempting” them to sin. Well, the moaning part is them masturbating after seeing too much of Sister Sue. Let me give an example of this kind of thinking. A year ago, Homeschooler’s Anonymous published a 2006 letter written by two Patrick Henry Colleg … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 1 – Child Extortionists?

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - Twinkie TwerpEditor's note: Another fine piece of parenting advice from Mikey Pearl. Of course kids are going to be occasionally demanding, act like less than a mature adult and want junk food, but is that any reason to blame/shame and call them ugly names? Clearly the child wasn't suffering a 'character loss' after one selfish moment wanting a snack cake and struggling with mama over it. There's just too much in this story that is unknown. Was it late in the afternoon and he was needing a snack before dinner? Did he miss a nap and was acting out as a result of being overtired? It's not all 'sin' … [Read more...]

Created To Need A Help Meet – Part 2 Mr Steady (Michael Explains About Women’s Monthly Cycles!)

by Aletha cross posted from her blog Yllom Mormonpp 90-92Last post we introduced Mr. Steady. According to Michael, he typifies Jesus Christ, but I've disagreed. Today we're talking about...wait for it...women's periods, and how they affect husbands. Yup. You read it here first. Michael's biology lesson isn't to help husbands understand the hormonal reactions so he can empathize with his (possibly) PMS-ing wife. Not. At. All. Michael gives us this section to help men "deal" with their wives hormones. He even offers a few "good" suggestions. I know y'all are as excited, so let's jump right in. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 2 Manipulative Children and Angry Mothers?

by Debi Pearl from No Greater Joy - Emotional ManipulatorsEditor's note: Laughing at a child hurting? Giving a bad tasting substance to punish her? So much abusive advice packed in three short paragraphs. A child's needs, physical and emotional are not 'manipulating' By the responses of the mother, this little girl has been trained to be an emotional manipulator. When she can not get her way, she will pretend to be hurt — or take a small hurt and make it into a big one. The mother will rush to the child and tell the other children to let her play or to not run off and leave her. This further compounds the sibling relationships because the other children don’t feel kindly toward a “cr … [Read more...]

TLC Filming New Duggar Family Television Shows

If there's one thing you can count on with networks like The Learning Channel is that they will not kill off the golden geese that fund the network, not even when children are sexually molested or one of the stars is exposed as a hypocrite. They waited a long time to cancel '19 Kids and Counting' starring the Duggar family, indicating that they were mostly waiting for the world to forget their outrage over Josh Duggar molesting his sisters, not that they had any real concern for the victims or the family. Yesterday it came out that TLC is once again putting the Duggar family back on television. … [Read more...]

NLQ Question of the Week – The Blood Moon, the Pope & Wishing For the End of the World?

This is a new series we have started running on Thursdays. Examining some of the questions involving long held Quiverfull theology and life.In this past week we've seen many fundamentalist and evangelical Christians, not all of them quiverfull, saying some rather strange conspiracy theory type things over the 'Blood Moon' that will be happening on the 28th. Yesterday, the 23rd, was supposed to be a day of disaster with an asteroid hitting earth and ushering in the End Times. There's been talk of demonic riots in Europe being part of this End Times and lots of conspiracy theories and complaining about the Pope. … [Read more...]
