Quoting Quiverfull: Don’t Pick Spouse Based on Sinful Attraction?

by Lori Alexander from Always Learning - Learn to Be Attracted to Good CharacterEditor's note: I'm not entirely sure that controlling your attraction to someone else is something you can effectively control or change entirely by changing your thoughts. This is more of the usual on controlling your thoughts and emotions. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Not Attracted to Your Husband – Fake It?

by Larry Solomon from Biblical Gender Roles - I Was Never Attracted to My Husband Does God Want Me to Fake It? (and as per usual we're not going to link directly to Larry lest we inflate his ego)Editor's note: You can tell it's a summer holiday when the usual pontificators are saying nothing, crickets chirping, with the exception of Steven Anderson and even he is merely ranting that you should not worship Mary or believe in Mormonism, which aren't even that 'out there'. This is an old posting of Larry's where a lady wrote to him about how she married for the wrong reasons before she was a believer and now that she is a Christian and her husband is not that she has zero sexual attraction … [Read more...]

Vaughn Ohlman – Sci Fi Writer?

As many of you know NLQ used to quote Let Them Marry.org patriarch Vaughn Ohlman many times for our Quoting Quiverfull feature. We regularly quoted Von right up until the time the Girls Are Like Apples meme popped up on his website with some toxic ideas about protecting daughters.Shortly after that it came to the attention of the world that Vaughn was planning a 'Get Them Married' retreat in Kansas this Fall. The internet and the world roared out their distaste once they read the words from Mr. Ohlman's own site declaring that fathers were to pick husbands for their daughters and any child developing breasts was old enough for marriage. Ohlman was left with no place to hold his child sex … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Loving Making Hubby’s Lunch Sandwich?

by Peaceful Wife from The Peaceful Wife - I Resented Making Lunch for My HusbandEditor's note: Oh man! I don't even know where to start with this one except to say if you have problems with resenting doing something for your husband it's much healthier to actually TALK to him about that. Is there some compromise you can make, perhaps he does not realize this is somehow burdening you or adding to a time crunch? What is the worst thing you can do is keep simmering resentments, stewing over slights and keeping it in. Handle it like a freaking adult instead of blaming your own emotions or attitudes. Why is everything so much more complex than needs be in Quiverfull world? … [Read more...]

Questioning The Pearls: Hungry Baby Crying?

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: The Internet is Potential Sin?

by Kelly Crawford from Generation Cedar - Why Your Children Annoy You and Homemaking is BoringEditor's note: Surprise! A female cultural enforcer using the internet to tell you that the internet is bad for you! Can you say cognitive dissonance? More blaming, finger pointing and attitude policing. More eating bon-bons on the sofa watching soap opera type assumptions about women from someone else in the movement. If you are discontent with motherhood and homemaking it's a much more emotionally healthy option to at least examine what the core issue is and take POSITIVE action to move towards a solution instead of being condemned and heaped with guilt from some internet stranger. … [Read more...]

In Touch Weekly: Click Baiting Over Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar Split

Several days ago NLQ posted about an upcoming In Touch Weekly article that claimed that Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar's marriage was on the rocks and this reality television duo was splitting up. This claim was also made last year in the wake of Josh Duggar being revealed as a serial adulterer by the magazine. Read the cover and tell me this doesn't make it seem like the Quiverfull couple is divorcing. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Animals Made For People by God?

by Yvonne from My Real Life - What is Your Priority?Editor's note: We've not shared Yvonne before. She's a pastor's wife and looks like another Evangelical child horder using adoption to fill her Quiver. A friend of the Mussers - family to dead Tommy Musser. She's complaining in the wake of zoo gorilla Harambe's death that no one loves the orphans like they do the animals. But her words here indicate a deeper problem in the world of Evangelical Christianity, that assumption that animals are things to be owned and not worthy of the same care and respect that humans are. That type of thinking leads to abused animals, and yes, shelters that insist on animals being treated well, i.e. … [Read more...]

What are you Doing? Chapter 12 Boys Just Wanna Pick Out Cereal?

by Suzanne TitkemeyerTonight's chapter is titled "A Help 'meet'" and I think it's Vaughn Ohlman's attempt to be clever, to make a little play on words, as in not a 'Help Meet' but help meeting members of the opposite sex that you might actually be able to con into marrying you. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Don’t Go Too Nutty Over Homeschooling?

by Steve Anderson of Faithful Word Baptist Church - Overboard on HomeschoolingEditor's note: I believe what we're looking at here is jealous at its finest. Right before this post Anderson wrote one attacking Paul Washer, who he mentions here while attacking Michael Pearl. I cannot believe I am about to say this, but based upon the measure Anderson gives here Pearl almost sounds less toxic with his belief that humans inborn nature is to do right. Too bad I've never actually seen where Michael Pearl has stated that. Is it possible that Anderson didn't actually read much of any of Pearl's writings because I've never seen anything that Pearl has written that didn't order you to beat the … [Read more...]
