Quoting Quiverfull: Feminism and Materialism Behind Low American Birth Rates?

by Biblical Gender Roles at Biblical Gender Roles.com - Lindsey Graham Says We Need to Import Other Country's(SIC) ChildrenEditor's note: We'll no longer be directly linking to BGR because he has been rejoicing over his hit counter exploding the last six months. Better not to improve his search engine rankings while pondering his strange beliefs. Here he's bemoaning the fact that in order to maintain all the people retiring from the Baby Boomer group it looks like we'll have to import workers to keep the economy healthy. I am guessing by some of his subtle digs he's also anti-immigration and pro 'Murica' like many others in the extremes of Christianity. He wants everyone to be … [Read more...]

‘Lies Women Believe’ Review: 115 – 134

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Samantha P Field.ComI hope all my American readers had a happy Labor Day– mine was spent reading Robert Jordan’s Winter’s Heart from the Wheel of Time series instead of reading for the Lies Women Believe review. I appreciated putting it off by a few days. Thankfully, this chapter was short.

Here’s the crux of the section: There is virtually never time in a twenty-four-hour day for me to do everything that is one everyone else’s “t … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Any Suppression of Your Fertility is Wrong?

by Tamara Rajakariar from MercatorNet and as quoted by Ladies Against Feminism - Do Women Need to Have Periods?Editor's note: This bit was said by a fertility 'practitioner' practicing in Australia.  Not a medical doctor. It is my understanding that with issues related to your period one of the first things that physicians tend to try to ease the problems are hormone-based birth control pills. Which is exactly the opposite of what this expert is saying you need to do. How exactly is using birth control to ease problems with your cycle causing women to be more masculine? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Don’t Blame Your Lazy Husband For Not Changing?

by Debi Pearl from No Greater Joy - Rising to the ChallengeEditor's note: Debi loves to call women lazy and berated them, but apparently men get a pass for being lazy. It all boils down to the wife being fully submissive. Yeah, like that's going to work. So what can a woman do if her husband wants her to send their children to public school and go to college? She can become a Proverbs 31 wife. She can study, learn, grow, and become successful. She can win his confidence in her as a teacher of his children. In all my 40 years of ministering to families, I have never seen a husband (no matter how stiff-necked and against homeschooling) who didn’t respond with thanksgiving when his wife b … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Changing Nations By Changing Diapers?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - The Rod of GodEditor's note: The Rod of God sounds like it belongs more on Colin Campbell's porn-sounding named column "Meat For Men" than something for ladies.
