News – Calvary Temple Church Spiritual Warfare

news

 Was asked to post this to get the word out about Calvary Chapel in Sterling, Virginia. This isn't too far from where I live and my poisonous old church had a few of the walk aways from Calvary Temple. In this area of Northern Virginia there have been whispers of dangerous wrong doing for many years.  Calvary has been in the Washington D.C. news a lot lately over allegations of abuse, both sexual and physical, not to mention the many years of rumors here in Virginia over the spiritual abuse endemic at Calvary. … [Read more...]

news

So I know this news is several days old but this is the first moment I haven't been traveling and could update NLQ. What does everyone think about this? The news that Jessa and Ben wanted to adopt seemed to indicate that they weren't going to be doing the typical Quiverfull life. … [Read more...]

Survivors Guilt

lanahope

by Lana Hope cross posted from her blog Wide Open Ground originally posted June 2013Daily I tremble in memory of friends left behind. As a Daughter of Patriarchy and fundamentalism, I am left to remember all the faces of those who didn’t make it out. I suffer from survivors guilt.  I don’t suffer from the spiritual abuse so much. I can accept that I will always be a foreigner in my own land. But gosh I hurt that so many friends have been left behind.This happened two days ago when I thought about my best friend from childhood (particularly high school), and I remembered that I was not invited to her wedding (she invited everyone else in childhood). It hurts not just that my friend rej … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Marriage Only For One Man & One Woman?

quotingquiverfull

by Ken Ham from Answers in Genesis and as quoted by Ladies Against Feminism - Why is Marriage Just For Two?Editor's note: It always amuses me when Ham and LAF start banging away about one man and one woman being the Biblical standard for marriage when there was incest, polygamy, marriage after rape, wives and concubines and all sorts of suspicious couplings apparently approved of by God in the Old Testament. There's no evidence in the Bible to support what they are saying is the one true marriage. I love how comedian Betty Bowers outlines all the different types of Biblical marriages. … [Read more...]

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

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.

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?
