Quoting Quiverfull: Dressing ‘Modestly’ Protects You From Creeps?

by Zack Clark from Girl Defined - Smart Dudes Aren't Looking at Your BodyEditor's note: I beg to differ. I don't care if you're covered up from neck to ankle, there are always going to be some men that will look and lust over that exposed inch of ankle skin. Cover that ankle skin and some guys will be drooling over your ear lobes. Plus creepy guys are going to approach you no matter what. Better to teach about sexual consent and how to deal gracefully with pushy guys that will be trying to hit on you uninvited than to claim if you dress modestly enough you'll be protected against those types. … [Read more...]

When Dangerous Fundamentalist Ideas Creep Into Mainstream Society: “War Room” Movie

by Suzanne Titkemeyer cross posted from her blog Every Breaking WaveYesterday morning I had one of the most triggering moments post-fundamentalism I've had in a very long time. It took place at the large mainstream denomination church my husband and I now attend. It involved the movie 'War Room', a recent release from the same folks that did the films, 'Fireproof' and 'Courageous' … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Bill Gothard Cannot Be A Sexual Molester Because He Preaches A Hard Word?

by unnamed Bill Gothard supporter at Discovering Grace.Com - Did He Do It?Editor's note: This site was supposedly put together by supporters of Bill Gothard but has most of the same content that Bill Gothard's ministry site has, word for word. ICANN registry used to show it was registered to Gothard, but now the registry information is private. So what are Bill and his 'supporters' trying to do on this site and in this quote? They are trying to claim that none of the sexual abuse he's being sued for happened. There are over 60 accusers. Think about that for a moment, 60, not 1 or 2. All young women who worked under him at ATI/IBLP. Ridiculous reason for claiming he didn't do what he's … [Read more...]

News: What Could be Revealed in the Discovery Phase of the Josh Duggar Lawsuit

In Touch Weekly had an interesting interview with the lady, Danica Dillon, suing Josh Duggar in their issue on newsstands right now. It's the issue with Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar on the cover with the fake-out, click-baiting headline "Duggars' Nightmare - The Family Therapist Tells All" What is actually inside the magazine cover is not some sort of 'tell all' by any therapist. … [Read more...]

Turning Evil to Good

by Living Liminal cross posted from her blog Living Liminal (An Update on my Story) In the biblical story of Joseph, his brothers hated him so much that they attacked him and then sold him into slavery in a foreign land. Eventually, he rose to a place of incredible power and authority in Egypt and ended up saving their lives (as well as countless others). After their father's death, the brothers feared Joseph would finally take revenge on them for their betrayal. Instead, he said to them, "Even though you planned evil against me, God planned good to come out of it." … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Hey, She Cursed Her Own Family?

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy Magazine - The Church Does Not Replace IsraelEditor's note: Not sharing this story so we can argue over the significance of Israel but to illustrate a point about No Greater Joy. There is definitely no 'Joy' at No Greater Joy but there is a lot of shaming and blaming of others under the guise of supposedly teaching others. If you have to put down others to support yourself there's something fundamentally flawed in your faith. This is one of the clearest illustrations I've seen of Fundamentalist Christians who put others down to build themselves up. And they wonder why numbers of Christians are declining across this nation. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Bless Your Husband When He Hurts You?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Pay Them BackEditor's note: This sounds more like a recipe to set up the perfect environment for spousal abuse. There's nothing wrong will rationally, calmly, logically pointing out to your significant other that you are hurt over something they said and to ask them to please refrain from behaving that way.  Why can't people actually discuss things in the Quiverfull world? Just talk to each other! … [Read more...]

Part 9 Reacting from a Place of Vulernability – Adventures in Ambiguity

by Cindy Kunsman cross posted from her blog Under Much GraceAll images by Cindy Kunsman from Under Much Grace used with permissionBefore developing as fairly functional internal locus of control and as strong sense of worth, and until former members work through how to relate to others with both good internal and external boundaries, things can be very difficult for them. There's so much to do immediately. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Judging Others Reproductive Choices Meanly?

by Kelly Crawford from Generation Cedar - 7 Misconceptions About Moms of Large FamiliesEditor's note: Do people actually walk up to moms of many and say these things to their faces? I have a hard time believing that they do, except I do know that Quiverfull moms have no trouble telling people in the church with small families, either by choice or because of fertility issues, any number of very ugly judgmental things about their lack of children. Here's a thought, perhaps no one on either side needs to publicly say stupid things to each other about the number of children they have. Oh yeah, that would mean that the QF crowd would have to shut their mouths about the infertile too. … [Read more...]
