Not Another Driscoll Post

king

by Living Liminal cross posted from her blog Living Liminal Thousands of words have been thrown around the Internet in recent months about Mark Driscoll and the bodies under his bus. And so many of those words have resonated with me because they sound so much like the things I experienced. Which started me thinking…With all the differences between that situation and mine, why did it sound so much the same?This post is part of my answer: … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: The Return of Women’s Sexual Honor?

When I see LAF and others of their ilk putting Elizabeth Bennett on a pedestal as the ideal of Christian womanhood I have to wonder if we actually read the same version of "Pride & Prejudice" as Lizzie is feisty and independent, nothing like a Titus 2 woman.

by Barbara Kay posted both at Ladies Against Feminism, and the Mercator Net - The Slow Return of Women's Lost Sense of Sexual Honor … [Read more...]

Not Quoting Quiverfull: Memories of ‘The Rod’

child

M. Dolon Hickmon, author of 13:24 - A Story of Faith and Obsession, has written a new article about the recent events with NFL player Adrian Peterson. It's a difficult but good read because of the unflinching descriptions of the Christian child discipline suffered by the author at roughly the same age as Peterson's son. People do carry the memories of what happens to them as young children into the rest of their lives as Hickmon proves in his piece. … [Read more...]

“Real Marriage” review: 3-18, “New Marriage, Same Spouse”

bad-dobby

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating the Dragons [content note: sexual violence, emotional abuse] I’m doing something different with Real Marriage than how I reviewed Fascinating Womanhood and Captivating; with the last two books, I’ve read the entire thing before I started and then did one chapter at a time, trying to keep the message of the whole book in mind. After reading the first few chapters of this book, I realized I couldn’t handle that– not spiritually, not emotionally, not psychologically. So, for this review, what you’ll be reading from me will lean in the direction of gut reaction and instinct, since I don’t know where Mark and Grace are taking this. … [Read more...]

Please consider donating to my friend Vyckie Garrison so she and the youngest five children can stay in their home.No Longer Quivering's  founder, Vyckie Garrison, needs (and, in my opinion, *deserves*) our help!

Burning Down The Woodshed

woodshed

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating the Dragons As my partner can attest to, one of the things that have stuck with me from growing up in the Deep South is my reliance on idiomatic Southern expressions. In my area, “trip to the woodshed” was the most commonly used euphemism for corporal punishment, and while the adults who used this term obviously meant it humorously, hearing it made me feel a little sick. “I’m going to take you out back to the woodshed!” conjured images, for me, of lashings and beatings and screaming boys and girls– but in that old-fashioned Disney way, with the too-red cheeks and too-round eyes and deep furrows in the mother’s brow and the animation sequ … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: The Ray Rice NFL Scandal Is A Good Opportunity To ‘Spread The Gospel’?

rayrice

by Voddie Baucham from his Facebook statusesFor those of you who don't follow the news or football or NFL let's summarize this: Ray Rice, running back for the Baltimore Ravens NFL team, beat his then fiancee and was suspended for a couple of games until the website TMZ posted the video of the incident. In the video Rice hits his fiancee so hard she's knocked unconscious in a hotel elevator before he drags her out of frame. After the NFL was chided for their slap on the wrist of Rice they then suspended him indefinitely and the Baltimore Ravens team cut him from their team. … [Read more...]

Command v. Suggestion: “Wives, Submit!” and “Husbands, Love!”

submitlove

by Libby Anne cross posted from her blog Love, Joy, Feminism Any Christian Patriarchy advocate reading my post yesterday would surely have been shaking his or her head and saying “but it’s all about servant leadership, not a dictatorship!” or “women may be commanded to submit to their husbands, but God also commands men to love their wives!” These are the two go-to excuses made by defenders of Christian Patriarchy, who argue that those men who are dictatorial and domineering simply aren’t doing it right. … [Read more...]
