Bonus Quoting Quiverfull: The Real War on Christmas?

by John Piper of Desiring God - Santa Claus: Harmless Fun or Tragic Distraction?Editor's note: Found this on Derick Dillard's social media. Interesting that since Ben Seewald has been spouting more liberal views that Derick is suddenly now the Duggar's fundamentalist mouthpiece. Keep in mind that this is from the same stupid mindset that believes that Starbucks having a plain red cup is somehow harming Christmas. Also, Pastor John, I can see and touch the roof on my home unlike Jesus. If you are seeing and touching Jesus the same way that you are your roof it may be time to talk to your doctor and a neurologist or psychiatrist!  … [Read more...]

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy magazine – Seven Things I SeeEditor's note: May I be the first to offer up a big old up yours to Mr. Pearl for this bit of blaming and shaming. As someone suffering from a chronic immune system illness from birth I know how toxic this type of thinking is and how pervasive in QF.

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy magazine – Seven Things I SeeEditor's note: Now this one is just plain old bizarre. Is mockery really a problem in most households, Christian or not?

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 3 – 7 Things Michael Pearl Thinks Are Important?

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy magazine – Seven Things I SeeEditor's note: While being thankful is a good thing most of the time it seems that Mr. Pearl has conflated it into a power greater than forgiveness or not taking offense. Spoilers: his list of this essential stuff we should teach our children contains fat shaming and judging others but nowhere on it does it speak of love, mercy or forgiveness.

Questioning the Pearls: No Foster Children With Your Own Children?

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.

You cannot see it but I am flipping birds at Michael Pearl over this piece of fat-shaming and health-blaming. Mothers making bad food choices for their children are not the cause of all chronic health conditions! Wonder what he blamed Debi's neck surgery on? This is one of those super dangerous pieces of misinformation that many in the Fundamentalist or Quiverfull communities embrace hard. Sick? Obviously you are doing something sinful and wrong according to him! Not getting that healing? Clearly you need to repent! This is the type of toxic theology that leads to death f … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part1 – 7 Things Michael Pearl Thinks Are Important?

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy magazine - Seven Things I SeeEditor's note: Michael Pearl and the newest No Greater Joy magazine - January - February 2017 - is curious. This is the sole article and it speaks of getting older and how to end well. The rest of the issue is merely a years worth of calendar pages.
