by Cindy Kunsman cross posted from her blog Under Much (more) GraceEditor's note: While this isn't a traditional NLQ SASBN member posting it bears posting here, if for no other reason than forewarned is forearmed. Even when you leave a harmful theology group the pressure to return and confirm will still be strong. You need to know their tricks. Want to see all these in action so you know what they look like? Try watching the recent HBO documentary on Scientology "Going Clear" … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: If Women Ran The World They’d Just Be Aping Men?

by Elizabeth Scalia from First Things and as quoted by Ladies Against Feminism - First Things: If Women Ran The WorldEditor's note: In which LAF accuse ladies with feminist tendencies of being like men and wanting to replace men. I don't believe that is the goal of feminism but I do know if women ran the world at least women would make the same wages as men for the same job instead of less, like they do now. Plus, they are claiming you shouldn't make an idol of the family? That's exactly what LAF does in most of their postings! … [Read more...]

NLQ Question of the Week: Are Patriarchal Moms Actually Helicopter Parents?

This is a new series we're going to start running on Thursday evening posts. Examining some of the questions involving long held Quiverfull theology and life.Suggested by a dear reader. This week the Washington Post had an article up that questions the whole idea of quality time versus quantity of time in parenting. While it's clear from a chart in the article that the time parents spend with their children has risen since 1965, but has that necessarily been a good thing? For those of us either raised in a patriarchal family or who have parented in a patriarchal quiverfull setting the results aren't as clear. Limiting income and education for women and girls seems to backfire according … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Your Kids Will Be Obese If You Work Outside The Home?

by Laura Keynes from and The Conservative Woman as quoted by Ladies Against Feminism - Stay At Home Mums vs Super Sized KidsEditor's note: You have to hand it to the LAF crew, they know exactly how to take an article that might just have a grain of common sense or be rather sensible advice and twist the content to fear monger to their readers. This is more of that even if the original author is calling for government support so that mothers don't have to go out and work. Having mother at home isn't going to magically lead to better eating choices for the children either. It takes a sustained commitment by the entire family to make that happen. Plus it would help if there … [Read more...]

Sea Legs

by Ellen cross posted from her blog When Church HurtsFor the first several weeks after we were tossed out of our church I felt like I still had sea legs.  I had learned over the years to walk somewhat steadily – or at least with a great deal of familiarity – as the wind and waves of spiritual abuse crashed over and around me.  Though I found myself on solid ground, my body, mind, and spirit continued for a time to lurch and sway as though I were still on board that hulking monstrosity of a church from whence my spiritually abusive treatment had pounded unabatedly. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 6 – Kids Saying ‘F*ck’ and Explaining Bestiality in the Church?

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - SanctuaryEditor's note: Whew, finally the end and it's all Michael doubling down on his message of control everything you expose your children to and homeschool them.  Don't forget to put on the full armor of God too! The question all of this brings up to my mind is has the church really changed that much in the last thirty years beyond the rock and roll worship music, fancy lights and technology? I'm not sure it has. … [Read more...]

Answering ‘Preparing To Be A Help Meet’ – Is Romance In Dating A Sin?

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.

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 5 – Kids Saying ‘F*ck’ and Explaining Bestiality in the Church?

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - SanctuaryEditor's note: So according to Michael anyone you might meet is for you to proselytize to or avoid if they don't line up with your particular flavor of faith? That's too bad because he might have, I don't know, actually learned something from others different than him. I wish I could say this is an April Fool's Day joke but sadly enough Mr. Pearl is serious. … [Read more...]
