Quoting Quiverfull: Trump Helping Blacks and Minorities?

by Larry Solomon from Biblical Gender Roles - Working Class Americans Give Trump the PresidencyEditor's note: This would be comical if it were not sweepingly wrong on so many levels. Most of the blog posting is Larry thinking that at last there's a Republican coming into office that is as hardcore conservative as Reagan. He thinks all the Republican presidents since are too liberal! But it's this bit about how blacks, Hispanics and young people, the very people who would be the most harmed by Trump's stated positions, turned out in droves for the man that makes me laugh. That, and the fact that Larry really believes that Trump is about to fulfill all his fundamentalist Christian … [Read more...]

Questioning the Pearls: Never Have Needs!

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: When Pastors Are Jealous of Other Churches?

by Steven Anderson of Faithful Word Baptist Church - The Purpose of the DevilEditor's note: Sounds more like Anderson is jealous of churches with beautiful facilities than a warning about the devil trying to tempt you with fancy geegaws and pretty music. Must be very miserable to be a member of this type of Independent Fundamentalist Baptist Church. Anderson -the Anti Prosperity Pastor. … [Read more...]

The Day After Tomorrow

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Samantha P Field.comI spent last night deliberately avoiding the election results because I knew I wouldn’t be able to handle it. Instead I spent the evening watching Suffragette and season six of The Good Wife. Both Handsome and I had a terrible sense of foreboding watching the story of women fighting and dying for the right to vote. I had high hopes that watching Suffragette would be prophetic, a good omen on the eve of electing our first woman President, that my hope could stave off the fear and dread I felt. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: A Bird’s Eye View?

by Debi Pearl of No Greater Joy on many random postingsEditor's note: While reading through NGJ this morning I found a trove of the most bizarre one paragraph postings by Debi Pearl and a female staffer. Sharing a few here for your entertainment and puzzlement. I know these are meant to be light hearted and funny but they are sort of horrifying. … [Read more...]

The Power of a Transformed Wife – Part One Chapter One – Where is the Love?

by Suzanne TitkemeyerThis chapter is entirely the personal history of author Lori Alexander, and from the way it reads I would venture to guess that perhaps the author has a touch of psychopathy because she seems like she lacks a lot of human emotions in her retelling of her life. There seems like there are lots of red flags for a certain type of disorder in this book. There's sure no love here for anyone and Lori is sharing many stories that reflect as badly on her parents and others as herself. You shouldn't have to keep putting down others to inflate yourself. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Revisionist Spin Post Election?

by Colin Campbell from Meat For Men - The Right to be BornEditor's note: This is interesting because Colin had said some rather harsh things about Donald Trump last year, declaring he was too sinful and demonic to ever be president. But as soon as his choice dropped from the race he shut up about who exactly he was supporting. Now he's praising Trump after not directly supporting the man in public, only through the writing of others. Fair weather friends. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Working Outside the Home is Pure Selfishness?

by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife - Dogmatic Teaching on Keepers of the HomeEditor's note: I think 'dogged' is the operative word here more than 'dogmatic'. It's Lori harping on her constant refrain once again, that women that work outside the home cannot possibly keep it clean or prepare decent meals. I guess she doesn't realize how many different services, devices and different ways you can do things now that makes it entirely possible to work full time, have great meals cooked, a clean home and well-taught children. Her central message isn't even Biblical considering in actual Biblical times women worked along side their men and extended family in family-owned concerns. This … [Read more...]

My Thoughts on the Complicity of Rural America in the Election of Donald Trump

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Life and Times of Bruce GerencserEditor's note: I know we usually have an NLQ Question of the Week on Thursday afternoons but for the next few days I may be skipping regular features to bring you differing views of what just happened this week in our political sphere. So much of what will happen under the new president will affect every facet of our lives, and we know that the Religious Right of Quiverfull is going to try to use this election to turn back many of our freedoms. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Stop Defrauding Men on Facebook!?

by Kenneth Wieske from Reformed Perspective as quoted by The Transformed Wife - The Shame of Public NakednessEditor's note: Lori and the author are defining 'Public Nakedness' by the narrow definition of a woman in a pair of panties and a bra, which could cover a long, long list of possible levels of modesty/immodesty, from three postage stamp sized pieces of cloth with string all the way to sturdy mid-thigh to mid-arm Mormon underwear. There's a lot of room there for the interpretation of immodesty. The gist is that this Christian man is feeling defrauded by someone else's Facebook picture. Real mature. Instead of  just clicking off he's whining about it. … [Read more...]
