Not Quoting Quiverfull: The Evangelical Standard of Womanhood is Fundamentally Flawed

Notquoting

Original author unknown - this is a Facebook posting quoted by Kelly Crawford at her blog Generation Cedar in her post To the Lady Who Used Guilt to Undermine Homemaking and the Titus 2 Woman.  Crawford is in high dungeon in her offended state over the words of this unidentified woman. Reposting it here because the original author has some valid points, it's not all shaming and blaming like Crawford likes to pretend that it is. … [Read more...]

Part 1 – A Crash Course in Sex, Gender and Gender Identity

WhenCowsKidsCollide

by Mel cross posted from her blog When Cows and Kids CollideEditor's note: While this has little to do with evangelicals or quiverfulls it does speak to the misinformation and downright lies that are taught about sexuality in the quiverfull movement and much of Christianity. Knowledge is power, so the next time a Zsuzanna Anderson type starts ranting about alternate sexuality in a hateful way you'll have the knowledge to know they don't know what the heck they are really talking about.The recent furor (in some circles) over Chris Jenner has clarified for me some of the main misconceptions about transgender identity. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Christians Are Called To Judge Others?

quotingquiverfull

by Zsuzsanna Anderson from her blog Are They All Yours? - On Judging, Hating and Name CallingEditor's note: So apparently Nancy Campbell is not the only Quiverfull Evangelical that will admit to judging people and claiming it's Biblical and what God designed them to do. Steven L. Anderson's wife Zsuzsanna thinks the exact same way. Not surprised because it seems like the ones that are the most judgmental usually find Bible verses to support their own not so nice behaviors. Zsuzsanna also thinks it's okay to openly hate others and call them names. … [Read more...]

Pastor Bob Gray Sr. Pines for the 1950s

bruce gerencser 2014

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Life and Times of Bruce GerencserLast year, Bob Gray Sr., retired pastor of Longview Baptist Temple in Longview, Texas, took to his blog pulpit to whine and complain about church women no longer obeying Deuteronomy 22:5: The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the Lord thy God. That’s right, Brother Bob is upset about Independent Fundamentalist Baptist (IFB) church women wearing pants. Of all the things a pastor could or should be worried about, Gray is concerned about women wearing what he perceives to be men’s clothing. Gray write … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: God Loves Emily Post?

quotingquiverfull

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - What's Their Answer?Editor's note: Sometimes I get the feeling that Nancy is out of things to talk about and starts scraping the bottom of the 'make others feel guilty and inadequate' barrel and posts like this one are the result. Why should one word answers not be enough? Does God worship all things polite and mannerly? Hey, at least the kid answered the question. I suppose one word answers might be considered rude but is this really the thing you want to focus on in parenting? Manners can be important but this is sort of over the top on many levels. … [Read more...]

Preparing To Be A Help Meet: Part 1 – Fleas

WhenCowsKidsCollide

by Mel cross posted from her blog When Kids and Cows CollideI made a blogger decision to skip Chapter 14.  It's a story about how Sheila and Shad Williams saved their marriage through Jesus.  The problem?  First, their marriage wasn't in (much) trouble.  Second, they were married at some point before 1975.Yup.  Debi has started padding the book with stories from her contemporaries rather than using her shaky creative writing skills. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: So God Visits Women Also During Rape and Incest?

quotingquiverfull

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Would You Like God to Visit You?Editor's note: Clearly Nancy is only referring to conception of a baby during marriage. But what about all the women who get pregnant from forced sex, date rape, violent sexual assaults or from being sexually abused by a family member? Where is God when those types of conceptions are happening. Following her reasoning either God isn't involved directly in conception or He is all about forced sex as well as marital sanctioned sex. Which is it? … [Read more...]

News: Christians Upset Over White Republican Christian Bruce Jenner Coming Out As Transgendered

news

This doesn't exactly fit in the Quoting Quiverful or News section but after some of what I've read on "Christian" sites/blogs, including several here on Patheos, it's obvious that many folks Quiverfull, Evangelical, Religious or Atheist are hotly debating gold medal Olympian Bruce Jenner's Friday night televised interview. Diane Sawyer interviewed Bruce for two hours in which he explained his gender identity journey along with snippets from the medical community and others who identify as transgendered in  a way that came across as enlightening and respectful, not at all what I expected. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Apply the Rod or Your Child Ends Up in Prison?

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - In Defense of Biblical ChastisementEditor's note: Michael seems to think that those that do not get beaten by the plumbing line end up in jail. The problem of criminal actions and behaviors is not as simplistic as he thinks it is. … [Read more...]
