Quoting Quiverfull: Your Entire Identity Is As A Mother?

quotingquiverfull

by Steven L Anderson of Faithful Word Baptist Church - The Effects of Birth ControlEditor's note: So much ignorance and fear mongering in a few short paragraphs. That bit at the end about green plasma caused by birth control pills is especially ridiculous considering there are also other circumstances that cause green plasma - the coloration is completely harmless.  It's not 'poisoning' like Anderson claims. He doesn't seem to realize that not every woman is cut to be a stay at home mother. It does speak to the fear of everything outside the canon of fundamentalism that drives churches like the IFB. … [Read more...]

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.

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...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Birth Control Steals Your Joy?

quotingquiverfull

by Steven L. Anderson of Faithful Word Baptist Church - The Effects of Birth ControlEditor's note: That sermon transcript archive at Faithful Word Baptist Church is like Christian in July, a treasure trove of misspelled, grammar-mangling, bad ideas, bad Bible translations pile of crazy. There's nothing that exposes the under-educated belief system of a Independent  Fundamentalist Baptist Church. Another pastor doubling down on the message of no birth control ever, have as many kids as possible and women should always stay home. It's a good thing that the Marie Curies of this world didn't follow that advice or we'd have been deprived of many useful things, theories and science. … [Read more...]

“Lies Women Believe” Review: 215 – 242

lies-women-believe

by Samantha Field cross posted from Samantha P Field.comIf there’s one thing that doing all these reviews have taught me about writing non-fiction books, it’s to avoid getting repetitive in the last two chapters. A lot of what Nancy covers in this last part of Lies Women Believe she’s already been over in different ways before. However she’s not completely unoriginal, so let’s dive in. IF MY CIRCUMSTANCES WERE DIFFERENT, I WOULD BE DIFFERENT … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Your Wife Should Fear You?

Image from Facebook used with permission

by Biblical Gender Roles from Biblical Gender Roles - Reverencing, Ravishing and RolloEditor's note: Last BGR for a while. His writings just infuriate me even worse than Michael Pearl's. Here he's answering the criticism of a Men's Rights Activist (MRA) over his last piece we quoted here on how to enjoy sex with a wife that will not cooperate the way you like. The MRA man said that BGR and other Christian Beta Men (his words, not mine) failed to use appropriate 'dread' in getting sex from their wives. BGR goes on to explain that dread shouldn't be used, but straight up fear should be used. … [Read more...]

News: Bill Gothard’s IBLP Sued

news

This is a trending topic today on Facebook and finally receiving the attention it deserves in the main stream media.

Five of them have filed a law suit against the board of IBLP. You know who sits on the board for IBLP? Duggar friend and reality television patriarch Gil Bates.

Quoting Quiverfull: Lying is A-Okay Biblical?

quotingquiverfull

by InsanityBytes22 (one of Biblical Gender Roles many honeybadgers: ie one of the female commenters that pops up in his comments approving of every female-hating idea he posts) at her blog Insanity Bytes 2 -It's Okay to Fake it (Do Not Link linked)Editor's note: I will agree with her that good manners should happen, but if you've contemplated smothering your husband in the middle of the night perhaps being mannerly is not what needs to happen. Perhaps you should consider why you're feeling homicidal towards your spouse and work through that, or leave for his safety. Covering your feel with mouthing polite words merely wallpapers over dangerous volcanic feelings. Get help. … [Read more...]

Finding the Strength to Give Yourself Permission to Leave

Image from Facebook used with permission from Real Life Bad Guy 485

by Suzanne Titkemeyer cross posted from her blog Every Breaking WaveI remember the last two years before I walked away from my old church. Every Saturday night or early Sunday morning I would have a nightmare involving church. They always involved church. It might be something like the pastor calling me out for some imagined sin from the pulpit and he and I fighting in the sanctuary. One time I dreamed that my home was filled with an abundance, a crazy wild abundance of things, like opening the bread box to have three fresh loaves leaping out instead of one, or opening the silverware drawer and finding set after set of silver in the drawer. That dream was terrifying because I was … [Read more...]
