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...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 1 – Manipulative Children and Angry Mothers?

by Debi Pearl from No Greater Joy - Emotional ManipulatorsEditor's note: Debi is again blaming mothers and crying children for crying. Where is the compassion of motherhood or the oxytocin Nancy Campbell keeps pushing. This seems mean-spirited to me.  Tell me what you think in the comments below. … [Read more...]

Priming a Child For Victimization or Predatory Behavior Through Poor Regard For Developing Personal Boundaries and Vulnerabilities

by Cindy Kunsman cross posted from her blog Under Much More GraceOriginally published January 2012. This is part of a series on Understanding How Emotional Development in Childhood Affects Adults: Fostering Spiritual Abuse via the “Roots of Victimization” All images originals from Under Much More Grace.Human beings are not omnipotent creatures, and children are definitely not invulnerable. When properly honored and taught to the child, appropriate vulnerability teaches and prepares the child to be appropriately intimate in relationships in their adult life. To achieve emotional intimacy in a healthy way, a person must be emotionally honest with their close friends and in love rel … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: So God Invented Clothing?

by Kristen Clark from Girl Defined - The Bikini is Destroying the Christian Girl's View of ModestyEditor's note: First, it's been considered 'normal' to swim nude by most Europeans for a lot longer than the advent of the bikini. Europeans are much less sexualized or hung up on the idea of unclothed body parts. Also, correct me if I'm wrong but weren't Adam and Eve nude in the Garden of Eden until they ate from the tree of knowledge, which made them feel shame over their nakedness, leading to them donning leaves? God seemed totally cool with the two of them hanging out in their birthday suits in the garden. Their own shame led to the clothing, not God suddenly opening up a ancient Brooks … [Read more...]

Answering ‘Preparing To Be A Help Meet’ – Awful Proposal?

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...]
