Quoting Quiverfull: Kids Aren’t Expensive?

quotingquiverfull

by Anna from House To Home and as quoted at Ladies Against Feminism - Kids Aren't Expensive But Greed IsEditor's note: LAF again are obsessed with people having too many things. While over the top materialism is just so off-putting, I can honestly say I know no one that wanted children who put off child-bearing for things. As to the other thing, that having kids isn't expensive, it isn't expensive in the world of Quiverfull because of home births, no childhood vaccinations or doctors visits, only buy used, school expenses, decent food and other things most of us consider essential to raising healthy, happy, well-adjusted, productive members of society. With LAF it's all or nothing, with … [Read more...]

News: Westboro Baptist Fails At Picketing Leonard Nimoy’s Funeral

news

From Jezebel - Westboro Baptist Wanted to Picket Nimoy's Funeral, But Couldn't Find ItEvery now and then we at NLQ get to see some righteous karma play out. The very fact that WBC could not find out where Nimoy's funeral was and stink up the joint with their disrespectful signs is some sort of divine justice.From Jezebel:It's not quite poetic justice, but we'll take it: the Westboro Baptist Church, a group of litigious trolls with the barest ties to Jesus, were unable to picket Leonard Nimoy's funeral because they don't know where it is. The WBC announced their plans to picket the funeral of the beloved actor earlier this week, as is their wont.This is what the family, … [Read more...]

by Suzanne Titkemeyer cross posted from her blog True Love Doesn't RapeEarlier this week I've had the opportunity to post in parts one of the most horrific pieces ever written by Debi Pearl of No Greater Joy Ministries and author of 'Created To Be A Help Meet' at NLQ. She has written about her early marriage to Michael Pearl and his 'obsession' (translation for normal folks 'hobby') of spending every winter Saturday hunting down those wascally wabbits. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Go To Bed Or Your Husband Might Sexually Stray?

quotingquiverfull

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - The TrendEditor's note: Oh great! Another thing to be fearful about in the CPM/Quiverfull movement. Your poor man cannot be up in the bed sleeping without you there cooing over him. Claiming it brings your husband 'sexual temptation' if you're not up in the bed at the same time as him is really a big stretch. What, does he have his Ipad under the covers with the browsers open to free porn and match making sites? Any man weak enough to stray because he's up in the bed alone while you're answering emails or playing Candy Crush isn't worth having in the first place! … [Read more...]

Idealism, Diplomacy and and the Pale, Blue Dot

quotingquiverfull

by Kaleesha Williams cross posted from her blog The Lost (and Found) Mind of Kaleesha WilliamsEditor's note: A fitting piece for the days following the death of Leonard Nimoy...LLAP Today at lunch I overheard my six year old directing one of the older children in the making of her PB&J sandwich. “Not like that. I want it the way it’s supposed to be.” At six years old, Little already has ideas about the way things are supposed be. Are all children like this or just mine? I don’t know. I suspect it’s more common than not. In my home, all nine of us, right down to four year old Justin, have perfectionist streaks. Natural born idealists. Though the older we are, the more set in our ways … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Labeling Women As ‘Pushy Broads’?

quotingquiverfull

by Doug Wilson of Blog and MaBlog quoted by Tim Fall in response to an article by Jen Wilkins at The Gospel Coalition titled How Men Pastors Can Better Relate To WomenEditor's note: Say what??? Reminds me of that scripture that says out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. He really must hate women if this is what he calls many of them! This is unacceptable language for someone who is supposed to a pastor. It proves that Wilson's brand of Christianity is a very unsafe place for women where they'll eventually be spiritually abused. … [Read more...]

News: CPAC and the Enforcement of Traditional Roles Only for Women

news

Not sure if everyone here has been following the last few days in the news and the coverage of the conservative Christian organization CPAC currently holding meetings in the Washington, DC area. Most of what's been reported in the media is a blender of Evangelical crazy, completely devoid of any common sense or reality. Example: "Duck Dynasty" star Phil Robertson gave a paranoid rambling speech that claimed 'STDs are the revenge of the hippies' and that 'you should only have sex for 30 seconds or less'. Seriously, I'm not making this up - Talking Points Memo - Duck Dynasty Star Rambles About STDs and Nazis in CPAC Speech … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Alecia Pennington Having No Official ID Is ‘True Freedom’?

quotingquiverfull

by David at Nooganomics.com - Homeschooling grad finds liberty stifling; she's 19, says she can't get legal IDEditor's note: This man seems to think that being completely unidentifiable in a legal sense is something to be valued? Original posting has lots of praise for the Pennington parents and digs at the federal government and society in general. Think this guy is hiding in a spider hole near Chattanooga, Tennessee stockpiling weapons and dehydrated foodstuffs? Another self-appointed patriarch trying to tell a girl how to live. How can anyone possibly believe that a lack of a legal birth certificate is an advantage? … [Read more...]
