Quoting Quiverfull: Women Today Do Not Know Their Place?

by Lori Alexander from her new blog The Transformed Wife - The Power of a Transformed WifeEditor's note: This is the evil core of what Ms. Alexander is assuming about other women in our society today. Apparently this new blog is where Lori's going to keep telling them what to do... plus it looks like Lori has a book coming out by the same name. At least we now know what all that complaining and whining she was doing about the 'Jesus Calling' books and community was about. It was sheer jealousy! … [Read more...]

It’s Not That Complicated: Part 3 Chapter 10

by Mel cross posted from her blog When Cows and Kids CollideAll quotes from the book in blue text.This is the section where the Botkin Sisters decide to act as the arbitrators of how girls should interact with each other.  You might expect that they would have some personal experience in this area.  After reading this chunk, I don't think they have much more experience with female friends than they do with male friends. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Atheists Are Just People Who Hate How God is Running Things?

by Lori Alexander from Always Learning - Divorced Parents Raise Less Religious Children?Editor's note: Ignoring the fact that many divorced women, men and children fall away from religious communities because the members of those communities behave like judgmental unloving jerks to them and concentrating on the most mind-blowing part of Lori's daily drivel. Atheist are people who are mad at God?!?! How can you be mad at someone you don't believe exists? This is illustrative of the fact that those still in the high pressure faith communities have zero understanding of anyone outside their koolaid zone echo chambers and make things up with no basis in reality. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: If Your Wife is Voting For Clinton Punish Her With No Sex?

by Pat Robertson from 'The 700 Club' - Husbands Need to Boycott Intercourse With Their Wives If They're Planning on Voting For HillaryEditor's note: It's been all over Facebook that Pat Robertson said all the sniffing presidential candidate Donald Trump did during that recent debate was merely 'the Holy Spirit'. Is that what they are calling cocaine these days? I kid. But this? Telling men to cut off the sex if your wife votes for Hillary Clinton is pretty extreme. Disney now owns the channel that airs his show but even the fantasies that they push are more believable than what is coming out of his mouth lately. Time to retire. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Parents Are Supposed to Fight Over Discipline?

by Tim Bayly of the Bayly Blog - The Good Father: Fight the Good Fight Part 1Editor's note: Does Bayly have a point here? I can only speak from personal experience and say that there were no fights ever in my family over disciplining the children because this is something we'd agreed upon well before we had children or even get married. I don't remember there being arguments or any whispering over family fights on this subject in my old church either. Money? Oh yeah, popular fight topic for everyone. Discipline? Nope. Not even tearful prayer requests to learn to accept a husband's will for his children. … [Read more...]

Questioning the Pearls: Playstation Taking Over My Sons Lives?

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: Is Racism a Feature of Fundamentalist Christianity?

by Doug Wilson from Blog and Mablog - How BLM is BecomingEditor's note: You should see the piece I didn't use, where Wilson is claiming that Hillary Clinton will get  sex change between the time she's elected and she's sworn in. This is pretty bad and the whole piece is imbued with white privilege and racism. Why can't these 'Good Christian Patriarchs' (tm) understand that people of color are profiled, stopped, arrested and yes, murdered at much higher rates than whites? You'd think if he was really Christian he'd be in favor of everyone receiving equal treatment by the police and justice for all. I have bolded some of the worst bits. Get the feeling from this it would not take much to … [Read more...]

The new primary message is be happy no matter what, no negative thoughts or emotions allowed ever. If ever there was a recipe for becoming mentally ill it is this insistence on no negative emotions ever allowed! … [Read more...]
