A Movement Much Bigger Than My Parents

Lana

by Lana Hope cross posted from her blog Wide Open Ground originally posted May 2013Heather of Becoming Worldly put together a post today that gave me physical tears and a knot in my stomach. The post centers on the 2009 a men’s leadership summit, and a speech given by Doug Philips. Doug Philips of Vision Forum was also previously an attorney at HSLDA. Its worth mentioning, as Heather notes, that most of the famous [Christian] homeschool leaders have connections with each other, and together they built up the Christian homeschool movement. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Tolerance is Faithlessness?

quotingquiverfull

by Ken Ham from Answers In Genesis and as quoted by Ladies Against Feminism - Is Religious Freedom Only Limited to Belief?Editor's note: The ladies of LAF and Ken Ham seem to be upset that the laws upholding freedom of religion in the USA do not allow them unlimited freedom to do whatever they wish in the name of their own personal savior. Those laws protect us from them and their hatred as much as they allow the extreme Christian right to believe whatever they chose. Religious freedom doesn't extent to allowing people to behave in a hateful manner. Your right to express your religion ends when it impinges on the freedom of someone else, as well it should. LAF have proven yet again that … [Read more...]

How I Left My Parent’s Home

Sarahhenderson

by Sarah Henderson cross posted from her blog Feminist in Spite of ThemSeveral people have asked me about actually leaving my parents. It's kind of hard to explain exactly what happened, because there was not one day when I decided to leave.When I was 16, I was still attending a conservative church with my parents. In my family we were still expected to wear head coverings all the time, but the church we attended only expected them in churches. So in December of 2004 (when I was 16) I decided to stop wearing one at all - to me you either follow that verse 100% or not at all, and I wasn't going to be the only one. I also secretly purchased jeans and changed into them on rare occasions … [Read more...]

Answering “Preparing To Be A Help Meet” – What About Earrings and Makeup?

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. 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 18 … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Help! I’m Falling In Love With ‘GASP’! An Atheist!?

quotingquiverfull

by Paula Hendricks from Lies Young Women Believe - I'm Falling in Love with an AtheistEditor's note: Oh no! Because it's just not possible that two people could ever possibly respect and love one another if they don't agree on faith? I'm sure that will come as a huge surprise to the many inter faith couples out there that have been successfully married for many years. If your faith is so shallow that it's challenged by anyone not of the same faith then perhaps you need to examine exactly why that is. … [Read more...]

quotingquiverfull

by Paula Hendricks from Lies Young Women Believe - Christ or Crush (Mysterious)Editor's note: Don't know if I  should laugh or throw up. She has some seriously bad analogies.

If you wanna talk about mysterious . . .QUOTING QUIVERFULL is a regular feature of NLQ – we present the actual words of noted Quiverfull leaders, cultural enforcers and those that seek to keep women submitted to men and ask our readers: What do you think?

Not Quoting Quiverfull: What To Say To Someone Suffering

Notquoting

by Nancy Guthrie from John Piper's Desiring God blog - What Not to Ask Someone SufferingEditor's note: Most of the time when I read Desiring God I have to say 'ugh' at the terrible Evangelical Quiverfull ideas it contains. This is different, this is something I think all of us in recovery can learn from. It's a good list of what to say to someone suffering. Guess even places with bad ideas will occasionally stumble over something that isn't so bad after all. … [Read more...]

I Am A Publican And A Heathen Part 3

Image by Bruce Gerencser

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Life and Times of Bruce GerencserIn March of 1994, our family packed everything up and moved from Somerset, Ohio to Elmendorf, Texas, a small rural spot along the road outside of San Antonio. Community Baptist Church had asked me to come to Texas to co-pastor the church along with Pat Horner, the founder of the church. This move was supposed to be what pastors like to call a once in a lifetime opportunity. The church was a young, growing Sovereign Grace church. (the church is much smaller today, and many of the members I pastored are no longer there) The church wanted me to jump-start their evangelistic efforts and help them start a … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Don’t Get In A Rut In Your Marriage?

quotingquiverfull

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Outdo One AnotherEditor's note: Wow, that's some advice. Not necessarily bad advice, but advice from Nancy's generation that has nothing to do with living as a committed, submitted Quiverfull wife. The thing is with this advice is it can rebound in two bad ways, 1 - if you really don't 'feel' the feelings of overwhelming love towards your spouse he's going on pick up on the fact that you're doing this out of rout obedience and not genuine affection Let's be real here, in a marriage there are going to be those days when you don't feel that over the top love sensation you felt in the beginning, there are seasons and there's nothing wrong with that. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Throwing Shade on Korea, ISIS and Abortion Because Jesus?

quotingquiverfull

by Colin Campbell from Meat For Men - Mourning Over What Grieves ChristEditor's note: Colin is in rare form in this post. He manages to order others to mourn for things, claims to know what makes Jesus mourn and manages to be racist, paranoid anti-government and blaming of others in four short paragraphs. That takes talent! (/sarcasm). Seriously, there a whole lot of judging, blaming and shaming in his words. Is it really necessary to say those things to ask others to do more intercessory prayer? … [Read more...]
