Quoting Quiverfull: Fawn All Over Your Husband or Else?

quotingquiverfull

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Who Is Your Best Friend?Editor's note: Instead of fear-shaming women into being the BEST MOMS EVER!!! this bit tries to fear-shame you into not having a best friend that isn't your husband. Sorry, Nancy, not buying it. Having friends not in the family is an emotionally healthy thing and doesn't mean you don't love or respect your husband. … [Read more...]

Christian Cliches “Don’t Cause Your Brother to Stumble”

Image from Wordgazer's Words

by Kristen Rosser cross posted from her blog Wordgazer's WordsThis is the beginning of a series on various catchwords and cliches that Christians (particularly evangelical ones) are fond of using.  Like most oversimplifications, however, they usually give an inaccurate or one-sided view of the particular issue they purport to be about-- and often, they are based on misunderstandings of the Bible text(s) they are taken from. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Dinosaurs Lies From the Pit of Hell?

quotingquiverfull

by Christians Against Dinosaurs at Guff.com and Christians Against Dinosaurs site and Facebook pageEditor's note: Most of us are well aware of Ken Ham and his whole schtick about Adam and Eve riding dinosaurs. Thought that Ham was the ultimate in science-denying in Christianity. At least until I stumbled across this group that think dinosaurs are a lie dreamed up by non-believers to corrupt their children and it somehow linked to bestiality. Do not know enough about this group to know if they are QF, but everything you can infer about their group seems to indicate they are some sort of far right Evangelical group. … [Read more...]

Not Quoting Quiverfull: Faith Healing & Child Welfare – Who Decides?

Image NLQ original

by Leah Sottile from Aljazeera America - Idaho's Faith-Healing Debate Pits Child Welfare Against Parental RightsEditor's note: Interesting debate on who gets to decide if a child gets conventional medical treatment which goes back to the old assertion by HSLDA that parents 'own' their children. But when children start dying from preventable causes due to a parent's religious beliefs at what point does the government step in to save the life of the child? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: What To Say To Depressed Women?

quotingquiverfull

by Jessica from Smartter Each Day as cross posted at The Humbled Housewife - To the Mom Who Feels DepressedEditor's note: While this is the rare Christian woman urging others to get medical treatment for depression and that's good, having someone else tell you how 'selfish' you are being because you are depressed is really discouraging. I'm glad it jolted the original author into seeking help, but in the world of Quiverfull Evangelical Fundamentalism it's a message that is repeated again and again, 'You have no reason to be depressed because you are blessed, so suck it up and be joyful'. It's a toxic message that's led to tragedies, such as mothers in the movement who have killed their … [Read more...]

Kink 101 For Purity Culture Survivors

Image from Samantha Field - Defeating The Dragons

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating The Dragons [note: links may include NSFW material] There are many amazing resources out there for people who think they might be kinky or into BDSM, and I’ll link to some at the bottom of this post. However, if you’re anything like me … a lot of what’s out there seems conflicting and confusing, and because I grew up on the rather strict end of purity culture I didn’t have the tools to start sorting any of it out. I didn’t know anything about sex, and many of us don’t. Someone I met in college thought that semen was green because of a joke they’d heard about grass stains, and I thought that “going through the back door” meant doggy. An … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Get Married So You Won’t Have A Heart Attack?

quotingquiverfull

by Nicole M. King originally posted at Mercantor Net as 'Marriage protects from heart disease' before being quoted and renamed by  Ladies Against Feminism - Feminism is Bad For Your Heart HealthEditor's note - LAF is still bloviating over '50 Shades of Grey' mostly, right down to posting articles opposing the movie by people like Vision Forum's Geoffrey Botkin. They have taken time out from that theme to proclaim that feminists have heart attacks, twisting the research that shows married folks, feminism supporters or not, have fewer fatal heart attacks. Disingeniousness at its finest.Here's what LAF had to say about the article and study: … [Read more...]
