Quoting Quiverfull: Be Quiverfull to Spread God’s Image?

by Colin Campbell from Meat For Men - Wouldn't This Make a Difference To This World?Editor's note: Have to say this is one of the strangest reasonings I've seen to justify militant fecundity. If all people bear the image of God then how is Christians rampantly breeding thinking they are the only ones spreading God's image? Playing a game of theology twister are we Colin? … [Read more...]

An Open Letter to Lori Alexander

by AnonymousDear Lori, I happened upon your blog following a link from a different one. Your writings are something I would have lapped up when I first got married nearly fourteen years ago, so this letter is basically me trying to protect that very young, naive, just married me from the harm your writings would have caused. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Does This Sound Like a Proverbs 31 Woman?

by Lori Alexander of The Transformed Wife - She Does Him Good and Not Evil: 31:12Editor's note: Lori's extrapolating out her own thoughts again and trying to make them 'Biblical'. While some of these are what a good wife will do regardless of what religion, if any, they practice she's really stretching hard on many of them. Example: Lori claims you stay home and keep the house immaculate unlike the words in Proverbs 31 indicating that the lady of the house had servants to do those things while she was about her business. What do you think is the most toxic bit here? … [Read more...]

Questioning the Pearls – Spy On Your Child?

Publishing this today instead of Sunday due to the holidays.For well over a year we’ve been running a second Answering ‘Preparing To Be A Help Meet’ on Sundays, filled with questions by young ladies trying to get ready for marriage. Since we’ve run through many of the questions on their site it’s time to shift Sundays to something else, like perhaps examining the cornucopia of probably fake emails and questions that Michael and Debi Pearl of No Greater Joy post on their website and the possibly poisonous answers they give. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Never Miss an Opportunity to Gay-Bash?

by Tim Bayly of Bayly Blog - "Gay Icon" George Michael Dies...Editor's note: I was wondering on Christmas night how long it would take the usual homophobic pastors of Quiverfull to somehow make the tragic passing of George Michael into all about their religion. Didn't take long at all. No Mr. Bayly, the essence of manhood is not responsibility! … [Read more...]

A CranioRectal Inversion as Both Nemesis and Insightful Tool

by Cindy Kunsman cross posted from her blog Under Much GraceAll images by Cindy Kunsman and Under Much Grace and used with permission Just a reminder that the purpose of this discussion aims at stimulating thought and self awareness as tools to help those in recovery from trauma learn how to make safer choices. To make the discussion more jocular, we've defined Cognitive Biases as “CranioRectal Inversions” (CRI).The False Consensus Bias refers to a tendency to overestimate the number of people who share our views, beliefs, values, and behaviors. I tend to think of Descartes' “I think therefore I am.” If I start with myself at the center of my understanding, it seems to naturally foll … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: All Hail the Womb?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - God Chose a WombEditor's note: No womb at the inn? A womb with a view? Nancy has uteri on the brain and is still imbuing them with magical powers. … [Read more...]

Then she leavens that message with toxic nuggets of 'shut up and smile!' … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Yoga Pants Are a Nihilistic Threat?

by Lori Alexander of The Transformed Wife - Yoga Pants - A New Kind of Modern VanityEditor's note: Lori's favorite hobby horse - Yoga pants. A couple of things, while the author of the original article makes a few good points that sometimes people do dress too informally Lori makes it a giant leap to the sin of vanity. The author is not even going near the idea of the pants being some how indecently revealing and defrauding. Secondly, is dressing for comfort really a bad thing? Read the original article in the Washington Post (not the Washington Times as Lori claims). Notice that Lori also says that one of the problems with yoga pants is that they are 'classless', not as in saying they … [Read more...]
