Quoting Quiverfull: Even a Medical Career is Selfish For a Woman?

by Larry Solomon from Biblical Gender Roles - The Sacrifice God Calls Christian Wives toEditor's note: Larry is at it again, this time influencing a fourth year medical student to give up her studies and possible livelihood to stay home and have babies. He calls a woman's medical career selfish. Keep in mind that this young lady is not even married yet, but at this late date in her education and training she's being influenced to toss it all away by the ignorant words of a online Red Pill Christian weak patriarch she does not even know. This is the damage that people like Larry, Nancy Campbell, Lori Alexander, et al do. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Why Can’t Feminists Also Have Meek and Quiet Spirits?

by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife - What Makes a Woman Feminine?Editor's note: Skipping a lot of quotes from the various Biblical commentaries that Lori used to justify her own thoughts on the subject. But here's the rub, there are women in the workforce out there that do fit the Biblical model of meek and quiet spirit, that go about their day peacefully blessing everyone they encounter. Why should the belief that men and women are equal automatically translate to loud boisterous behavior? It doesn't. This is another assumption by those outside of the workforce, like Lori. … [Read more...]

Questioning the Pearls – Babbling in the Night?

For well over a year we’ve been running a second Answering ‘Preparing To Be A Help Meet’ on Sundays, filled with questions by young ladies trying to get ready for marriage. Since we’ve run through many of the questions on their site it’s time to shift Sundays to something else, like perhaps examining the cornucopia of probably fake emails and questions that Michael and Debi Pearl of No Greater Joy post on their website and the possibly poisonous answers they give. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Women Weaken Every Workforce?

by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife - "A Day, No Years, Without Men" in the WorkforceEditor's note: This week I tried not to quote Ms. Alexander much because I did that review of her book and her lack of logic and wisdom temporarily broke my brain. I ranted to anyone who would listen, my husband, Cindy Kunsman and others about how foolish her financial advice was.This is even worse. What does the title even mean? It's not grammatical and it's confusing. This idea that women in the workforce make every workforce weaker has been debunked many times over by studies done by our nation's Department of Labor and many university studies and research. Lori cites no legitimate source … [Read more...]

The Image Rehab of One Josh Duggar

When it was announced late this week that Anna and Josh Duggar were expecting again it immediately started conversation on message boards speculating two things. 1 - How long before Josh re-offends? He had a long history of bad behavior his parents have swept under the rug, starting with his molesting his sisters and the other victim, through the rumors he looked at porn on campaign computers for another politician through his Ashley Madison exposure, hookups and shenanigans. Add in all the sightings of Josh at Arkansas and D.C. area strip clubs and this seems to be a long-established pattern. Unlikely that his six months at a pray the porn away work camp had much of a dent on his desires. … [Read more...]

A Few Things I Wish Christians Understood About ‘The World’

Quoting Quiverfull: Act Kind to Homosexuals But Convert Them!?

by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife - Trying to Justify Christians Watching 'This Is Us"Editor's note: This week's theme for Lori seems to be sinful movies and television shows. She apparently approves of watching shows with dramatic depictions of murders and other 'sins' but not watching a show named 'This Is Us'. I admit I haven't seen this show so I cannot make a judgment call on if it's sinful or not, but for goodness sakes it's just a fictional television show. If you don't like it, don't watch it and don't beat up on your readers that said they liked it. No one is forcing you to participate in watching the show! Personal tastes vary wildly. I had to share this little bit by … [Read more...]

Josh and Anna Duggar Expecting Again

Guessing that all the rumors of a divorce between reprobate Ashley Madison member Josh Duggar and his long-suffering wife Anna aren't so true. It was just reported that the couple announced that Anna is pregnant with another son on one of the official Duggar blogs. Here's a screen cap of the announcement:Here's hoping things go well? That Josh doesn't cheat or treat her poorly?Have to say while this is not unexpected since there have been rumors since Thanksgiving that Anna was pregnant again, this feels so sad. Poor Anna.Anna must have taken the advice posted in Michelle's blog again and again in the aftermath of Josh's exposure to heart. Michelle kept reposting her advice … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Hipster Clothing Threatens Pastor Tim Bayly’s Masculinity?

by Tim Bayly of Bayly Blog - The Emperor Has Hip ClothesEditor's note: For a guy who claims to be uber masculine pastor Bayly seems to spend a disgracefully large amount of time judging others levels of masculinity. Why would that be?Also, hair is coiffed, scarves are not. Scarves are coiled. Coiffing can only happen to hair, careful styling, or donning a headdress.Saint Benedict never called out random people out for being effeminate either. What he did call out was soft living, as there was a hatred of the body and self-punishment among the monks of that time. Softness and soft bedding, being concerned with soft living was described as 'effeminate' in that time, and those … [Read more...]
