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: Common Sense For Once?

by Steven Anderson of Faithful Word Baptist Church - Balance in the Christian LifeEditor's note: They say even a stopped watch is right twice a day, and so it is with Steven Anderson. This is actually decent advice for a change. Balance in life is important. But I'm guessing he disapproves of any reading material that isn't the Bible or Biblical commentaries. … [Read more...]

Post Election: Where Do We Go From Here?

by Suzanne TitkemeyerIt was with great dismay I awoke this morning and discovered that the sky has fallen. Donald J. Trump, darling of the Evangelical Christian world who does not hold true to any of their stated views, has somehow managed to capture enough of the popular vote and electoral college votes to be the next president of the United States. … [Read more...]

A Call For “The Church” To Repent

by Living Liminal cross posted from her blog Living LiminalAround this time last year, a policeman came knocking on my door, summoning me to a court conference two days hence. My eldest son, who was home at the time, thought it was a some sort of joke at first. But it was anything but funny! The couple who had been part of the leadership crisis at my ex-church three years previously, were now alleging that I was a violent threat to the personal safety of both themselves and their children. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Practicing Medicine Without a License Again?

by Shoshanna Pearl Easling from No Greater Joy - You've Got WormsEditor's note: Paging Mel again. Is there any legitimate science behind these claims? After seeing last week that Michael Pearl thinks that depression and other 'womans complaints' are problems with the bowels we can see where his daughter gets her bent for telling people what's physically wrong with them. We're not saying here at NLQ that parasites are a real problem, because clearly they are in underdeveloped parts of the world. Just look at the work done by the Carter Center to reduce River Blindness due to parasites in drinking water in third world countries. But here in America this is not such a problem like … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Never Allow Sleepovers Because Sexual Predators Lurk?

by Tim Challies from Challies.com - Children and SleepoversEditor's note: This is a theme we keep seeing repeated over and over again in Quiverfull - no autonomy or non-parental controlled interaction with others and the excuse is almost always 'sexual predators'. Is this realistic or good parenting, or is it more about control and less about protection from predators? … [Read more...]
