Quoting Quiverfull: Controlling Your Tongue Yet Again?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - A New Vision For Your HomeEditor's note: One thing is surprising about Nancy Campbell - her ability to repackage the message of 'control your thoughts and words' and 'no negative emotions or thoughts allowed' into a myriad of messages that boil down to that simple 'control yourself and BE HAPPY or ELSE!' This is more of that. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Raising Boys Equal Messy House?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Mother's BoysEditor's note: Welcome to another episode of 'Cognitive Dissonance with Nancy Campbell'. Remember all that recent lecturing and hectoring by Nancy that you must keep your house immaculate while smiling and controlling your thoughts?

Plus generalizations about the sexes don't help anyone. … [Read more...]

What are you Doing? Chapter 8 Part 3 – Sakal Still Just Wants to be Right

by Suzanne TitkemeyerPreparing to read the rest of this chapter again makes me feel like I need to run away to a place of lollipops, lemon drop martinis and lagoons, peaceful and calm. There's nothing more disturbing than a 'Good Christian Patriarch' that thinks he's the only one who is right. Except maybe that ongoing televised goat rodeo that is the Republican National Convention. I think Vaughn Ohlman and Donald Trump might have some crazy ideas in common. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 1 – Adrenaline Rush Staves Off Sexual Impurity?

Too bad that does not usually work out well for anyone. … [Read more...]
