Quoting Quiverfull: Have You Trained Your Children’s Ears?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Self DeceptionEditor's note: Nancy seems to be confused about self-deception. Hearing yet not acting is not necessarily being deceived and training your kids to listen and obey has nothing to do with deception.  The only deception I see here is in her awkward segue from reading the Bible to making your kids listen. Word salad. … [Read more...]

Cries of 'Keep Our Boys PURE!' are not just uttered in the movie 'The Music Man' but from every internet bully pulpit. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Watch Your Mouth?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - What Are You Releasing Into Your Home Today?Editor's note: Something has changed over at Above Rubies. While many of the messages that Nancy is busy spewing out are the same old thing like this one of watch what you say, she's starting to post more and more short one or two paragraph messages and they are starting to sound somewhat less than rational. She has even posted in Colin's 'Meat For Men'. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Woman Don’t Tell ME What to Do?

by Kirk Cameron at Christian Today - Kirk Cameron Shares Secret to Happy MarriageEditor's note: This has been blowing up all over the internet and entertainment websites for the last week. Initially I wasn't even going to share this because it's just such a milder version of the complementarian theology pushed by the Quiverfull movement. It feels almost 'liberal' to say that husbands should not tell their wives to submit. It's far less shocking and disturbing than anything we've seen from the Campbells or the Pearls. But here it is. What do you think? … [Read more...]

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.

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: Viewing Porn Makes You a Sexual Victim?

by Claudine Gallacher at Protect Young Minds! - The Secret Life of a Young Girl Abused by PornographyEditor's note: While I agree with the writer that it's a good idea to try and keep children from viewing things like pornography I cannot help but think her tale of the girl whose life was wreck by viewing semi-porn at a young age is fake. Just like those of Debi and Michael Pearl, belabored and false to make a point that could have been arrived at in a more reasonable way. Fear mongering Christianity at its most ridiculous false way. Is not lying a sin in the Bible? … [Read more...]
