Answer to my Critics: My Childhood Opened My Eyes

JoeSands

by Joe Sands cross posted from his blog Incongruous Circumspection Editor's note: Some translations here. Billy Boy G is Bill Gothard, Swine Beads are Michael and Debi Pearl and Ezzo-kimos are followers of Gary Ezzo. Trigger warnings for descriptions of child abuse.Recently, I was accused of only speaking out against Billy Boy G. and his patriarchal ilk because I have a vendetta against my life as a child.  While I do not disagree that half of my childhood was pure torture, I vehemently disagree with that accusation.Here's a summing up of my childhood: … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: LAF Thinks Boys Should Be Allowed To Develop Neanderthal Ideas About Girls?

quotingquiverfull

by Dan Bell at The Telegraph as quoted at Ladies Against Feminism - We must stop indoctrinating boys in feminist ideologyEditor's note: This is exactly what it looks like when men and women support and promote the long-standing Rape Culture in patriarchal theology. It's the flip side of their purity culture -- Don't wear anything that tempts a man into lust, but if you do he's allowed to rape you. Is it really a bad thing to teach our children from a young age that no one is owed sex from anyone else? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: You ‘Own’ Your Children?

quotingquiverfull

by Biblical Gender Roles from Biblical Gender Roles.com - Does The Bible Teach The Concept Of "Human Property"Editor's note: This is one of the postings where BGR says that it's biblical and a-okay with God if people own other people because slavery is in the Bible. He is particularly enamored of the idea of the father-patriarch owning all the wives and children in their own households while still claiming they aren't slaves. I don't know, his vision of the submission of women and children reads very much like slavery from here. What do you think? … [Read more...]

Spiritual Abuse – Recommended Reading

Undermuchgrace

by Cindy Kunsman cross posted from her blog Under Much GraceAccording to the Spiritual Research Network, “spiritual abuse occurs when a leader, church or belief system – whether well intentioned or not – dominates, manipulates or castigates individuals through fear tactics, mind control or some other psychological or emotional abuse.”I believe that Jesus dealt with a great deal of this phenomenon and that the Pharisees were the spiritual abusers of His day. They are shepherds who use, manipulate or hurt the sheep for their purposes.This is a difficult thing to understand at first, especially if you are in a church and believe that your pastor or church leadership has subjected you … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Constant Child-Rearing Is Rest?

quotingquiverfull

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - God Has A Better Place For YouEditor's note: Doubling down on lack of all understanding of what words actually mean is Nancy Campbell insisting that quivering mothers with broods of children live in rest. Yes, she is talking about a mental/emotional/spiritual rest but it is very different than the realities of serving in a large family. It's easy for Nancy to rest as she has a staff of Above Rubies girl interns doing the hard stuff and before that a pile of African adoptees working, at least before she disappeared them. This is exactly the kind of thinking in quiverfull that will make you lose your mind trying to carry it out another with ten million … [Read more...]

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - Jumping Ship Part 5Editor's note: Whew! Last piece. When I started posting this series I had no idea it was so long and that Michael was hawking a book to go with this series written back in 2006.
