Quoting Quiverfull: So Eve Was the First Feminist?

quotingquiverfull

by an anonymous writer/editor at Ladies Against Feminism - Empowerment vs. GraceEditor's note: Word salad ahead - the usual blathering about non-believer females being the fount of all evil that tears down Good Christian (tm) families and society. I guess they skipped the parts of the New Testament where Jesus treated the females he encountered as equals. … [Read more...]

Trusting Birth – Another View of Duggar Home Birthing?

Dr. Amy Tuteur is at it again. This time she's explaining in a blog post all the things that could have caused the type of bleeding that sent Jessa Duggar Seewald to the hospital post home birth. She also has an interesting view of the birth stories of other Duggar women that ended up in the hospital. Birthing odds of 200 years ago would have surely killed not only Jessa, Jill and Israel, but likely Michelle Duggar too. Josh was a forceps baby and her twins, Jana and John David were born by cesarean after Michelle developed preeclampsia. … [Read more...]

Answering ‘Preparing To Be A Help Meet’ – Should I Confront Him About This?

Answering

Another installment of giving better answers to the questions asked at Debi Pearl’s site message board for the book ‘Preparing To Be A Help Meet’. Many young ladies ask questions on all sorts of different subjects brought up by the book. There was just one big problem, many of the answers stray into either the outright bad and emotionally unhealthy to dangerous. Yes, typical Debi Pearl borderline abusive. Here’s what we’re going to be doing here at NLQ. Every week, once or twice a week, I’ll be posting up one of the questions from the message board and ask you, our readers, to answer that poor soul’s question in a way that is logical, rational and the best possible solution, in other words 18 … [Read more...]

On ‘Different’ Churches: You’re Actually Not

samantha

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Samantha P Field.ComA little while ago I reached out to my followers on Twitter to ask if they’d stopped attending church and why. I was flooded with replies over the next few days, and many of the answers I received were heart-shattering. In the midst of that conversation, the Twitter account for Highlands Fellowship church jumped in, inviting me and another woman to their church because they were “different,” and linking both of us to a promotional video. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: No Birth Control Leads To Growing Instead Of Crisis Management?

quotingquiverfull

by Zsuzsanna Anderson from her blog Are They All Yours?Editor's note: The great comedy of this bit by Zsu is that in a previous entry she was complaining that church nursery was dangerous to children because of the adult to child ratio. Yet here she is saying that passing on the tradition of no birth control teaches you to grow from being stretched to your limits. So which is it? There must be so many children to adult for safety or not? She also was claiming that a nursery at a former church she attended was responsible for the deaths of  babies in the nursery. Surely if an alarming number of babies were dying at a certain church's nursery wouldn't we hear about that in the news? Would … [Read more...]

Do Tell!

WhenChurchHurts

by Ellen cross posted from her blog When Church HurtsI receive many messages thanking me for sharing my story of spiritual abuse via this blog.  People ask if they may use what I have written in their book project, as part of a spiritual abuse presentation or seminar.  People applaud my “courage” and often express their personal fear that, were they to tell their own story, they would suffer serious consequences.The desire to tell their story is framed in several ways.  Some know that telling will help them to heal.  Some want to warn others, or, at the very least, open the eyes of those who cannot see.  They hope that by telling, their friends, family members, church comrades, even … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Sex Slavery Instead of Welfare?

quotingquiverfull

by Kevin Swanson as quoted by Raw Story from his radio program Generations With Vision - Sex Slavery Better Than WelfareEditor's note: Whenever I see quotes like this by Swanson I always wonder what the heck he's doing down in his basement. Whatever it is it sounds like it's time for him to emerge and go out into the real world. This is pretty vile. For all his criticisms of welfare I don't see him rushing out to help defeat the problems of long term poverty in inner city families.Keep in mine this is the same guy hosting three of the presidential candidates, Ted Cruz, Mike Huckabee and Bobby Jindal, this weekend in Iowa at a conference that looks like it will be filled with Biblical … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Belt Your Children?

quotingquiverfull

by Lori Alexander from Always Learning - Children Need a Bible and a BeltEditor's note: This is a seriously toxic piece of garbage posting by Ms. Alexander. She's blaming shootings at schools and a pile of things on the fact that less and less people in America beat their children with a belt!?! Then she tops this off by linking directly to Michael Pearl's ritual child abuse manual disguised as parenting advice 'To Train Up A Child" So glad her children are grown and have left home after reading this. … [Read more...]

Jessa Duggar Seewald Birth Drama

news

Because People magazine has an exclusive on the birth of Jessa Duggar Seewald's baby boy there's not been a lot of information available. TMZ just published a report that Jessa tried to have a home birth but something didn't go right and she was taken from the Duggar compound to a local hospital.  That baby boy weighed an impressive 9 pounds 11 ounces and was over 21 inches long. Might be that he was just too big to come naturally at home. That is a huge first baby! … [Read more...]
