Quoting Quiverfull: Because It’s Always Satan If You’re Having A Bad Day/Week/Month?

by Christie Elkins from For Every Mom - This is What Happens When Satan Steals Your MotherhoodEditor's note: Because you cannot just be having a bad day or week, it's always Satan stealing in to take your motherhood or whatever. There is simply too much blaming normal things happening on a deity that may or may not exist. Somehow they never seem to 'get' that if you put this much pressure on yourself to do something perfectly it's bound to go haywire the minute real life intrudes. It's not some devil working when you forget a pair of underwear in the bathroom for a week, it's simply the sign of a mind overburdened worrying about other more important things. Having spilled Lil' Friskies … [Read more...]

by Aletha cross posted from her blog Yllom Mormonpp 48-50Alrighty. I hope everyone is doing well. I'm really excited for this post, because Michael lets us play a game! I'm calling it the Sexist Stereotype Game, because it shows how sexist we really are. Let's jump right in, shall we? Text is in purple.I Need Her Sensitivity I need her companionship, mercy, and grace. The nature of man is found in the husband and wife's combination. God Adam "Male and female", It is as if one body and soul couldn't contain and express the fullness of God, so the Creator divided his attributes, grouping similar traits, putting them into two genders. If we were to make a long list of human … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Daycare Is A Counterfeit Mothering?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Brass Instead of GoldEditor's note: Nancy does the blaming shaming guilting thing she's so good at it leading to her stating that using daycare (and the unspoken shame of working a job) isn't embracing our Biblical roles as mothers. She doesn't answer why she didn't embrace her motherhood role when she adopted those children from Africa. I guess her words only work if you're a white Evangelical Christian women having your own children. … [Read more...]

Behind Compound Walls: Dueling Duggar Stories – Is Josh Duggar ‘Suicidal’?

Everything single morning I can count on a couple of things once I get out of bed. 1) The cats will demand food, 2) I will need copious amounts of coffee and 3) there will be a pile of articles involving the Duggar family landing in my email box. Personally I prefer the cats and coffee. One reason why is became many times the stories of TLC's "19 Kids and Counting" Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar stories are either generated by their PR firm or they all just contradict the hell out each other. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Discipline, Discipline, Discipline But Keep Your Daughters Unmarried?

by former Vision Forum friend Geoffrey Botkin hawking his newest CD/DVD/book on raising children on Ladies Against Feminism - How To Practice Biblical Discipline.Editor's note: The ladies of Ladies Against Feminism didn't even bother to try and write a review or put into their own words why they endorse this particular item by Botkin. They copied and pasted this right from his website. Odd that there's been no updates for over seven months at his single very adult daughters website Visionary Daughters, no online web tutorials about gilding your outside or what to do when there's no real role for you any longer. Most curious how silent they've been. … [Read more...]

NLQ Question of the Week: Why Do Quiverfulls So Tightly Control Who Their Children Marry?

This is a new series we have started running on Thursdays. Examining some of the questions involving long held Quiverfull theology and life.During a recent sweep through the websites which seek to further the Quiverfull agenda I landed on the Botkin sisters page -- Visionary Daughters. There have been fewer and fewer updates there in the last few years as the girls get older and are still unmarried. The only daughters in this family of Quiverfull enforcers are still unmarried at thirty and thirty two years old. Surprising after all the years of propaganda about preparing for marriage at their page. Yet there are no marriages or suitors coming for them that anyone can see. If the aim of … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 5 – Homeschoolers Embracing The World?

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - Jumping ShipEditor's note: Now Michael seems to think that fun, joy and laughter are some sort of bizarre tools of the devil instead of normal human experiences. "True" joy is allowed, but he doesn't explain what makes "true" joy so different than regular joy. Same song, different day.This long series is from 2005 and we're still on only the first point. Will be posting all of the five different articles he wrote on 'Jumping Ship' but will take a several days break between each article. Too much Michael Pearl at the same time can be toxic to your appetite and incompatible with joy. … [Read more...]

Is Spiritual Abuse Biblical?

by Cindy Kunsman cross posted from her blog Under Much GraceEssentially, the most vivid examples of spiritual abuse come from Ezekiel 34 and Zechariah 11, with the consummate example of spiritual abuse embodied in the Pharisees and Sadducees. Though I’ve listed the references for these Scriptures below, I have also displayed the full texts on the Under Much Grace website, and you can LINK HERE to read them (and as of April 2012, they are also noted below).There are also two excellent articles that discuss whether or not spiritual abuse is actually found within Scripture itself. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 4 Homeschoolers Embracing The World?

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - Jumping ShipEditor's note: Gasp! Michael just admitted that even atheists can live a "good life"! But then he goes right back into his toxic blaming shaming speech of referring to public school children as "Sodomites," cancelling out anything good he might say about anyone without his worldview. Followed by some ridiculous twaddle about 'natural life' and 'Jesus life'. Ugh. … [Read more...]
