quotingquiverfull

by Biblical Gender Roles from Biblical Gender Roles.com - How a Husband Can Enjoy Sex That is Grudgingly Give by His WifeEditor's note: This alone may be one of the worst pieces of marital advice given by this man. Of course you should talk about these things if something isn't going right in the bedroom instead of faking that it's wonderful. Eventually the fakee is going to be fed up and explode on the one insisting she fake it. Recipe for disaster like so much marriage advice given in the world of Evangelical Quiverfull. If you are doing it wrong and your wife tells you this you should listen! … [Read more...]

The Fruit of the Spirit

Image from The Life and Times of Bruce Gerencser

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from The Life and Times of Bruce GerencserBut the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. (Galatians 5:22,23)I spent the first 50 years of my life in the Christian church and I spent 25 years pastoring churches in Ohio, Texas, and Michigan. I have met thousands of Christians in my lifetime. Even now, seven years removed from the last time I attended a Christian church, I continue to meet Christians and interact with them on this blog, through email, and on Facebook. My exposure to the personal lives of hundreds of Christians allows me to draw some … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Force Your Body To Turn On, Or Just Fake That Orgasm?

quotingquiverfull

by Biblical Gender Roles at Biblical Gender Roles.com - How Can a Husband Enjoy Sex That is Grudgingly Given by His Wife?Editor's note: As always we're linking to Dood Obsessed With His Penis through Do Not Link.com. No need to inflate his ego any larger by increasing his Google rankings, which he's crowed about several times in his blog. Okay, this is getting even weirder than usual, first he says that women need to focus on their bodies being ready for sex and follows that by saying she should fake her orgasm if she's not turned on. Translation: he does not care if she enjoys it as long as Mr. Happy gets off. … [Read more...]

Created To Need A Help Meet – Part 8 Mr. Steady (You’re Valuable, But Nobody Cares or Notices)

Createdtoneed

by Aletha cross posted from her blog Yllom Mormonp 99-101I've made mention of this earlier, but this section is more pronounced. It seems that Michael has very little respect for a Mr. Steady. Possibly because he views himself as Command/Visionary? I'm not sure, but the more I read in this chapter, the stronger that feeling gets. Let me know if you agree/disagree.Text is in purple … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Michael Pearl Invented ‘Healthy’ Patriarchy?

quotingquiverfull

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - The Balanced PatriarchEditor's note: Even as far back as 2009 Michael was throwing shade at Bill Gothard and Doug Phillips over their patriarchal teachings, well before the news that both men are sexual predators emerged. The original article has a longer version of the history of patriarchy and society's problems, but we're picking up the history at the time that the Pearls claim they started practicing it. Lots of blaming others per usual.  … [Read more...]

“Lies Women Believe” Review: 193 – 214

lies-women-believe

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Samantha P FieldI didn’t think it would be possible to be happy about writing another segment of my Lies Women Believe review, but it is 100x better than dealing with being hacked. I’m pretty sure we’re all good for now, and I am crossing my fingers that never happens again.This week is Nancy’s chapter on emotions, and part of me just wants to refer you to the How to Win Over Depression review, because it covers a lot of the same ground. But, she throws in her own twists, so let’s tackle them.The first problem is the gender segregation: … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Characteristics of ‘Bad’ Patriarchs?

quotingquiverfull

by Michael Peal of No Greater Joy - The Balanced PatriarchEditor's note: I wish I had a graphic of a full coffee cup smashing to the ground and splattering because that was my personal reaction to this list of characteristics of 'bad' patriarchs written by Michael Pearl. His list includes many things that he has espoused in his writings through the years. This is from 2009 answering a letter from someone claiming his book and article series that we featured early in the year 'Jumping Ship' only teaches children rebellion. Next up: the characteristics of a 'Good' patriarch. How deluded can one man possibly be? … [Read more...]

First Look at Jessa and Jill Duggar on TLC’s ‘Counting On’

About an hour ago The Learning Channel shared the first look video on the new Duggar television show 'Counting On'. The show will be focusing on missionary wanna-bes, Jill Duggar Dillard and her husband Derick Dillard and her sister Jessa Duggar Seawald and her husband and all around Jim Bob Duggar go-fer Ben Seawald.What struck me the most about this video snippet, besides the fact that Jill is crying again over the actions of her brother Josh, is Jessa Duggar Seawald's lips. I kept staring and rewatching in horrified fascination because it looks to me like someone has had lip filler injections. Please, someone tell me this is just my imagination, pretty pretty please? … [Read more...]
