Quoting Quiverfull: Wives Cause Affairs?

by Lori Alexander from Always Learning - Can Wives Contribute To Their Husbands Affairs?Editor's note: Lori goes into Biblical Gender Roles territory with this blaming bit of crap. No Lori, not having sex with your husband for any number of reasons legitimate or ridiculous, does not mean that the man is going to automatically cheat. Cheaters cheat because of something deficient in them, not their spouse in most cases. Who wants a man that weak and unable to control his animalistic nature? This type of thinking reduces men to beasts. … [Read more...]

Are Evangelicals Fundamentalists?

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Life and Times of Bruce Gerencser(Editor's note: Since all Quiverfull either self-identify as either 'Fundamentalist' or 'Evangelical' with a great deal of overlap between the two I thought we'd best take a look at what they really are.)Many people think that Evangelicalism and fundamentalism are two different species of conservative Christianity. However, I plan to show in this post that Evangelicals are inherently fundamentalist and that the only issue is to what degree they are fundamentalist.Some of the confusion comes from the fact that there are Evangelicals, such as the Independent Fundamentalist (IFB) church movement, who … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Women Pastors Are ‘Sinning’

by Tim Dukeman as quoted by Lori Alexander at Always Learning - Men Make Better PastorsEditor's note: So not only are women responsible if their husbands abuse them they also cannot be pastors or elders in churches because vagina. Wonder what these people make of the Mother Theresa's of this world? Oh yeah, I forgot, it's okay for women to serve others, but not to tell any man what he should do. All Christians who believe the Bible will affirm that the office of elder {Pastors are simply the elders who labor in preaching and teaching} is limited to men. We affirm this because the Bible says it with greater clarity than almost anything else.However, as we affirm this truth, we often … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Women Overusing ‘Abuse’?

by Lori Alexander from Always Learning - The Overuse of the Word 'Abuse'Editor's note: So if your husband is looking at porn or telling you that you're a piece of garage this is somehow a reaction to something you have done? I don't think so. Abusive takes many subtle forms that are sometimes hard to see when you're in a relationship but someone else making the choice to abuse you is not your fault! She should rename her blog because she's not learning a damn thing except how to silence and shame abuse victims. … [Read more...]

Review Part 2 – “Spanking, Why, When, How” by Roy Lessin

Continued on from yesterday here are the words of others that have been raised using this method from Roy Lessin's books. My life has been full of pain and anguish due to Roy's methods. Your daughter is happy because children will be whatever you ask them to be after hitting them. I would have thought someone strange for telling me my parents were cruel too when I was six, twelve, or even 15 years of age. My parents were my world when I was a kid. The horrible affects of Roy's spankings will probably not show up until it is too late. You will have already made your parental choice and the damage will be done. I was a happy child or so everyone thought. Inside I was torn up and didn't really … [Read more...]

Review Part 1 – “Spanking, Why, When, How” by Roy Lessin

This is a review posted at many different websites including at Amazon for this book on spanking in the Christian home.  One of the reasons I am sharing this is that the Duggar family has linked to several of Roy Lessin's books on child training, like "How to be Parents of Happy and Obedient Children" and stated that they use many of the child rearing tips in the book.Since so many people are in complete denial about what Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar believe in and do when the cameras are not rolling we need to educate them. Particularly since in a mere few weeks TLC will start airing 'Counting On', a series of specials focusing on Jill Duggar Dillard and Jessa Duggar in an attempt for … [Read more...]
