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...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 3: Have Sex With Me Or Else?

by Biblical Gender Roles from BiblicalGenderRoles.com – 8 Steps to Confront Your Wife’s Sexual RefusalEditor's note: Here the author tries to claim that not having sex with your spouse is equally bad as having an affair. Nope, not the same thing no matter what he thinks. And his story about a Christian man being told to tolerate his wife's affair by clergy? Very unlikely. Someone is making up stories to support their twisted view of what a marriage is - that of a live in 24 hour a day prostitute. This guy needs some sort of sexbot or Real Doll, not a living, breathing, emotional actual human female. … [Read more...]

Trickle-Down Cults

by Samantha Fields cross posted from her blog Defeating The Dragons I grew up in a cult. ~~~~~~~~~~ That’s what I say when I have to start explaining my life to someone. As a phrase it carries a lot of baggage, but even so, it’s the easiest and most straightforward way I have to start my story. Generally I have to walk the person back from visions of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, but as loaded as the word “cult” is, it still applies to my life. According to the research of people like Michael Langone, the Independent Fundamental Baptist church I attended for a dozen years fit 13 out of 15 qualifiers. So while I didn’t live in a bunker or on a compound, there’s really no other way to explain w … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 2 – Have Sex With Me Or Else!

by Biblical Gender Roles from BiblicalGenderRoles.com - 8 Steps to Confront Your Wife's Sexual RefusalEditor's note: Again this is all about forcing compliance from someone who obviously has reasons not to have sex with her husband. Put out or else. I bought you. You owe me. All horrible messages without adding in the bible verses written by a confirmed bachelor Paul. Taking sex advice from Paul is like listening to a deaf person explain why you shouldn't listen to a certain type of music. … [Read more...]

NLQ Question of the Week: Why Is It Evangelicals & Fundamentalists First Reaction To Scandal To Say “Just Don’t Talk About It!”

This is a new series we’re going to start running on Thursdays. Examining some of the questions involving long held Quiverfull theology and life.The last week and a day with all the different released news of Josh Duggar committing sexual crimes against five different young women has had an odd effect on the community. Those not involved in Evangelicalism or Quiverfull or Christian Fundamentalism have said a) this is horrible and b) it should have been investigated and prosecuted, or at the very least everyone involved should have had legitimate treatment or counseling. Sounds reasonable, huh? … [Read more...]
