Quoting Quiverfull: Sheeple?

sheep

Revisiting Steadfast Daughters in a Quivering World Part 5 – Confessions of a Quiverfull Hero

quivering-daughters

[Note: this series is dedicated to Quivering Daughters by the former-Quiverfull moms at No Longer Quivering.]by Daisy I was only 19 when I arrived at Christianity’s door, bruised and highly impressionable and, because of my family situation, determined to do a better job of sorting out my life than my parents had done. Victims of abuse in their own homes, my parents had learned very early to dissociate from their emotions. Our home was an emotionally sterile one and, although I know now that this is not true, as as child I believed my parents did not love me. I decided that when *I* had kids, if they grew up knowing nothing else, they would know for sure that I loved them more than bre … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Egg Freezing Enslaving Women To Bad Maternal Outcomes?

frozenbabies

by Miriam Zoll from Ladies Against Feminism and Mercator Net - Will egg freezing liberate women?Apparently the fact that Apple and Facebook pay for egg freezing for their employees is making LAF foam at the mouth with warnings over the evils of egg freezing, not examining the realities of a woman of a certain age not being married yet wanting to prolong her chances for having a child if she does marry later or choses to have a baby on her own. What would they say if this was one of the unmarried starting to grow long in the reproductive tooth Botkin sisters they were discussing re: egg freezing? … [Read more...]

Mark Driscoll’s Resignation Letter

letters

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating the Dragons You might have heard the news that broke just a little while ago– Mark Driscoll has officially resigned from being a pastor and elder of Mars Hill. This is exceedingly good news, and while I was not exactly joyful to hear it, I am hopeful that those who have been abused by Mark and the Mars Hill leadership can gain some hope and comfort from this. Mark Driscoll wasn’t the only problem at Mars Hill– no one becomes a spiritual abuser of thousands all by themselves– but he was the most visible example of misogynistic, abusive Christianity and I’m glad he’s gone. … [Read more...]
