Answering ‘Preparing To Be A Help Meet – What To Do?

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: Part 1 – Jezebel Women Compete With Men?

by Eliset Igat and Todd from Safeguard Your Soul - The Godly Woman vs JezebelEditor's note: The amused part of me is laughing over the made up words in this like 'Jezebellian', but it's not funny at all when you realize what they are pushing here is a complete slavery via fundamentalist submission to men with no outs for abuse or allowances for a person's basic needs. When did having needs and taking steps to assure they are met become 'demonic'? … [Read more...]

Christian Porn: Kevin Sorbo’s Atheist Salvation Fantasy

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Life and Times of Bruce GerencserIn recent years, several movies marketed to Evangelicals have featured erotic scenes of Evangelical revivalism ravishing atheism. Movies such as God is Not Dead are built around the notion that the Christian gospel has the power to brings atheists to their knees. Never mind the fact that these Evangelical fantasies are about as real as the scenes found in countless porn movies. While I can point to countless Evangelicals who are now atheists, rare are atheists who become Christians. When people tell me that they were atheists before they embraced the wonderful, matchless grace of Jesus, I question them as t … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: No Television Keeps You Thinner?

by Zsuzsanna Anderson of Are They All Yours? - Financial Reasons to Turn Off Your TelevisionEditor's note: What is with the Quiverfull obsession with everyone else's waistlines? We had a series of posts from Lori Alexander and one of the Pearl daughters on the unGodliness of fat children recently. While it's a great idea to make sure your children are active and eat right the rising obesity levels in America aren't due only to television! Is this just part of the whole telling everyone what to do cultural enforcer part of QF, or is it a symptom of fat-shaming being one of the last acceptable forms of putting others down publicly? What's driving this none of their business bus? … [Read more...]

by Suzanne TitkemeyerIn the last three years or so both NLQ and NLQ SASBN member Bruce Gerencser have written about the disappearance of Carol Ann Cole, her eventual identification as the Louisiana murder victim known only as Bossier Doe and the possible links between Carol Ann and troubled teen home New Bethany. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Fungible Marital Sex?

by Larry Solomon of Biblical Gender Roles as found on FacebookEditor's note: This is so shockingly vile and demeaning. It paints much of the marriage relationship into a series of trade-offs, exchanges, not too differently than a man going to a prostitute might make. Because make no mistake about it, what Larry is talking about here is cooperation with his wife in exchange for sexual favors. i.e. - want him to do something around the house that's going to require a handjob whenever demanded. HEALTHY marriage relationships do not work that way! It's not tit for tat! Interactions with a sex worker do. Larry holds wives as being the same as sex workers. … [Read more...]

Do Christians Love Like Narcissus?

So entranced was he by the sight, he could not bear to draw himself away. So eventually he died... gazing longingly at the river's image of himself. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Don’t Pick Spouse Based on Sinful Attraction?

by Lori Alexander from Always Learning - Learn to Be Attracted to Good CharacterEditor's note: I'm not entirely sure that controlling your attraction to someone else is something you can effectively control or change entirely by changing your thoughts. This is more of the usual on controlling your thoughts and emotions. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Not Attracted to Your Husband – Fake It?

by Larry Solomon from Biblical Gender Roles - I Was Never Attracted to My Husband Does God Want Me to Fake It? (and as per usual we're not going to link directly to Larry lest we inflate his ego)Editor's note: You can tell it's a summer holiday when the usual pontificators are saying nothing, crickets chirping, with the exception of Steven Anderson and even he is merely ranting that you should not worship Mary or believe in Mormonism, which aren't even that 'out there'. This is an old posting of Larry's where a lady wrote to him about how she married for the wrong reasons before she was a believer and now that she is a Christian and her husband is not that she has zero sexual attraction … [Read more...]

Vaughn Ohlman – Sci Fi Writer?

As many of you know NLQ used to quote Let Them patriarch Vaughn Ohlman many times for our Quoting Quiverfull feature. We regularly quoted Von right up until the time the Girls Are Like Apples meme popped up on his website with some toxic ideas about protecting daughters.Shortly after that it came to the attention of the world that Vaughn was planning a 'Get Them Married' retreat in Kansas this Fall. The internet and the world roared out their distaste once they read the words from Mr. Ohlman's own site declaring that fathers were to pick husbands for their daughters and any child developing breasts was old enough for marriage. Ohlman was left with no place to hold his child sex … [Read more...]
