Revisiting Generation Gaps and the Moral Imperative of Totalitarian Niceness

by Cindy Kunsman cross posted from Under Much GraceThe following list describes the desired traits that non-Christian young people desire to see in Christians, particularly among their elders as compiled by the authors of “unChristian: What A New Generation Really Thinks About Christianity....And Why It Matters.” When I presented quotes from this book on my blog last year, I suggested that we as believers should extend the same considerations to those who follow patriarchy as well as to young unbelievers. I would like to use this list (from pp 194-5 of the book) as a point of departure for relating to young adults in general. Those interviewed suggested that these considerations would imp … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Your Taxes Pay For ‘Lazy Whores’?

by Zsuzsanna Anderson from Are They All Yours? - April 15, Tax Day - The Day We Are Reminded We Are All Slaves To The Global Banking Elite!Editor's note: This is a short posting that's not so sweet by Steven L. Anderson's wife letting the world know that she thinks taxes are a scam for other women to lay around watching television. In very ugly words. Would Jesus approve of calling other women whores? That's some Olympic-level blaming and shaming going on there. … [Read more...]

News: New Charges Brought Against Bill Gothard

The details of this are getting increasingly worse, with allegations of being sold into human trafficking and charges of molestation by others at IBLP.  Apparently several of Gothard's victims went to law enforcement and law enforcement declined to prosecute. From the Washington Post: … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: So Now All Law Enforcement Officers Are Evil?

by Zsuzsanna Anderson from Are They All Yours? - Another Worthless CopEditor's note: I was and wasn't surprised to run into this rant on Zsuzsanna Anderson's blog after her husband Steven L. Anderson's incidents with law enforcement in their area. Zsu doesn't come out and say this is why you have to be armed to the teeth, but it is implied in her words. Does anyone really want people as hateful and paranoid as the Andersons armed? Granted, there have been more cases in the media of bad cops, but that does not mean all of them are awful. … [Read more...]

NLQ in 2016 – Some Housekeeping For 2016

by Suzanne TitkemeyerIt's a New Year and with the New Year there are always changes. We have a few changes happening in 2016.Last New Year I started to shift the focus of the site to the mothers and older women leaving the Quiverfull moment, and stopped publishing as many pieces by the second generation young adults. This was for several reasons, but the decision was mostly because there wasn't a need to keep featuring the young adults here. When Vyckie Garrison started No Longer Quivering there was no place for the young adults and teenagers that had been raised in the quiverfull movement to go. They were an integral part of the early version of NLQ. … [Read more...]

SkullDUGGARy: An Effect Gothard’s ATI Movement Won’t Own

by Cindy Foster cross posted from her blog Finding Fundamental I realize that I am the ‘Johnny-come-lately’ to this subject   BUT....   After poring over the many disturbing facts surrounding Josh Duggar’s  molestations, I want to extend the focus from Josh’s deviance and his parents’ learned, willful  ignorance and denial to what I believe to be at the root of their troublesome response... which would be: … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Unmarried Men Cannot Fully Minister to Others?

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - Created To NEED A Help MeetEditor's note: Ad ad written by Michael as to why a man must marry and have a help meet of his own or be incomplete. Not a very convincing argument from here. … [Read more...]

Answering ‘PreparingTo Be A Help Meet’ – How To Build Trust

 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. There was just one big problem, many of the answers stray into either the outright bad and emotionally unhealthy to dangerous. Yes, typical Debi Pearl borderline abusive. Here’s what we’re going to be doing here at NLQ. 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 1 … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: If You Expose a Nipple It’s Okay For a Man to Grab it?

by Josh Moore from Dead State - 'Family Values' Conservative: If Woman Can Breastfeed in Public, I Can Grab Their BreastsEditor's note: Moore is a legislator in New Hampshire that is trying to make any exposure of a woman's breast in public a misdemeanor offensive, even if the woman in question is breastfeeding her baby. Do not know if Moore is quiverfull, but he is a 'family values conservative', which is usually a political coded phrase for evangelical quiverfull. … [Read more...]

Learning to Be Human Again After a Lifetime of Self-Denial

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Life and Times of Bruce GerencserOriginally written in 2009. Edited for grammar and clarity.Evangelical Christianity teaches that followers of Jesus must practice lives of self-denial. Self is the problem — the flesh wars against the spirit, the spirit wars against the flesh. Far too many Christians, thanks to this teaching, live guilt-ridden lives. Guilt over giving in to the flesh, guilt over letting self have control.It goes something like this… … [Read more...]
