Quoting Quiverfull: Part 4 – Silly Women Use Prozac?

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy – Drug AddictsEditor's note: I leave you with this very toxic last little bit that is entirely without merit. Michael gives medical advice and then doubles down on blaming mother for any health problems as 'sins'. Sorry, but it's not always that easy of a fix if you have a disease. Medicine might be required and decent legitimate medical care from a professional be the difference between struggling along sickly, or dying and living a full life. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 3 – Silly Women Use Prozac?

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy – Drug AddictsEditor's note: Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't Michael straying into the illegal area of giving medical advice without a license in his article? First time I've heard of the 'lined bowels' claim about white sugar. Paging Mel, what's the real scientific truth behind his claims? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 2 – Silly Women Use Prozac?

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - Drug AddictsEditor's note: Michael really ramps up the blaming and shaming of mothers who aren't 100% happy and overjoyed every minute of every single freaking day. One of the laughable things about this screed, and there aren't many, is that it was written in 1998 and by that time Prozac was no longer the most prescribed drug for depression, a flood of other SSRI had taken the lead. Plus substitute the word 'Valium' for 'Prozac' and this screed would fit well back in the 1960s. The Rolling Stones did a song about stressed out mothers and their drugs. This is neither a new problem or an uncommon one of mothers feeling stressed out, overwhelmed and … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 1 – Silly Women Use Prozac?

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - Drug AddictsEditor's note: This article started out as a rant against boys taking Ritalin, but very swiftly morphed into Michael telling mothers exactly what was wrong with them. It's pretty sick and fits with our recent discussions in the comments on the lack of all compassion and disdain that Michael holds everyone but himself and Jesus. This is going to take a couple of days to unpack. Where does it say in the Bible that taking medicine for a problem is a sin? … [Read more...]

Happy Halloween!

Found this on Facebook this morning. No idea who the originator is but was reminded of that recent discussion where The Transformed Wife's Lori Alexander talked about giving out organic lollipops attached to scripture for Halloween. Your child is much more likely to bring home a religious tract or candy with scripture attached than any candy that has been tampered with or filled with drugs. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Love is Overrated?

by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife -When We Love Someone, We Want Them to Go to HeavenEditor's note: It's time to visit opposite world again, Lori Alexander and her claims that you have to preach sin, hell fire, and damnation or you are wrong, wrong, wrong. This seems more like another attempt to pile on any others attempting to teach just so her book and website are the only ones available. … [Read more...]
