20 Worst Things To Say To Someone Suffering

by Suzanne Titkemeyer cross posted from her blog Every Breaking WaveAs part of my adminning No Longer Quivering I have to stroll around the blogosphere a couple of times a day to see what's going on. This morning I found this list posted at two different places. This list made me almost retch upon reading it. But I've been told that the list and posting was sarcastic. I hope so because these are some of the worst things I've seen that could be said to a struggling person.The original posting was about how your friends can support you best when you leave your abusive husband. Granted, I've never had to do that, but I have gone through trauma, tragedy and pain, just like everyone else, … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Public Schools Filled With Mega Sin?

by Voddie Baucham from Exodus Mandate - 5 Reasons NOT to Sent Your Kids Back to Public SchoolEditor's note: Many of Voddie's other four reasons are just as filled with blaming and scare tactics as this bit. But the claims of 'brutal beatings' seems to be something that is more associated with homeschooling done the Michael Pearl 'To Train Up A Child' way than at any public school. Homeschooling is also rife with abuse, a fact that Voddie seems not to realize. At least at public school teachers are mandatory reporters of abuse, unlike homeschool, where abuse gets hidden or denied until there's a dead body. Oh and I am so hoping Voddie decides not to pay  his taxes, as he seems to indicate … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Scary Thoughts of Forced Motherhood?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Mothers Won The WarEditor's note: Is this just wishful thinking or a real prophesy? Sounds like wishful thinking but with the way so many of our politicians are pushing Quiverfull ideas and agendas it could be something that happens by government mandate one day.  While motherhood can be a noble thing mandating stay at home motherhood for everyone is an awful idea. Freedom is a good thing. … [Read more...]

by unknown from The Sunshine Thiry Blog - What Would It Look Like For Christians To Honor Husbands And Fathers?Editor's note: Another of Biblical Gender Roles female submission enforcer friends that says what he wants to hear. The scary thing is that at his own site BGR seems to be hinting at moving in the direction of Christian Domestic Discipline aka spanking your wife. Also both he and this lady are pals of MRA promoting blogger Dalrock. BGR is moving closer to the realm of Men's Rights Activists and their harmful ideas of what constitutes a marriage - total slavery of the wife. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Refusing Sex Is Abuse?

by Anonymous at her blog The Girl With The Dragonfly Tattoo - The Ignorant Sexless WifeThis is by one of the culture enforcer type women that the disgusting rape-promoting Biblical Gender Roles holds up to try and promote the idea that his anti-women abusive ideas are normal. She's talking about the anonymous online confessions at the Reddit subthread Dead Bedrooms where people discuss their lack of sex from their partners. She also fails to understand that not all the complaints are men complaining about women, the lack of sex from  a partner can go both ways, and it's not abusive. Sometimes it's just life, commitments, stress, depression or a million other things. Why not just talk to … [Read more...]

It’s In The Bible: Anonymous Evangelical Blogger Says Marital Rape Is Not A Sin

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Life and Times of Bruce GerencserThe Evangelical church is built around one inviolable belief; that the Bible is the inspired, inerrant Word of God. This belief is irrational and intellectually bankrupt, but it is the one belief that binds every corner of Evangelicalism into a cohesive whole. Throw in a healthy dose of literalism and what you have is a recipe for emotional, mental and, at times, physical abuse. … [Read more...]
