Quoting Quiverfull: Talking Too Much & Homeless Shaming?

quotingquiverfull

by Steven L. Anderson from Faithful Word Baptist Church - Vain JanglingEditor's note: Another jaw drop point from this awful sermon about not talking too much and letting only the learned pastor speak from the pulpit. He manages to be scornful of the homeless, junk food and his own followers at the same time. This is also the part that had the most 'Amens' type sermon interruptions coming right from the crowd. He doesn't seem to take into consideration that a homeless man isn't going to have a place to fix cheap and nutritious food, a way to get to a super market to buy the ingredients or any of the other factors that go into healthy eating. This man is doing sheer survival eating and … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Just Read Your Bible?

quotingquiverfull

by Steven L. Anderson from Faithful Word Baptist Church - Vain JanglingEditor's note: God or Fate or whatever you chose to call it has been kind to NLQ and put up an entire transcript library of Anderson's sermons. This one is a lengthy word salad where he's basically claiming only someone who has read the Bible cover to cover many times, like himself, is qualified to preach. He knocks down the idea of anyone else there preaching. This little bit about reading on the internet is not the same as reading paper books and the Bible is interesting. There's a part also in the beginning of the sermon where Anderson states he doesn't believe in every word of the Bible, that some of the stories, … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Education Leads to No Sexual Morals?

quotingquiverfull

by Fire Breathing Christian as quoted by Ladies Against Feminism and at Fire Breathing Christian.com - Giving Our Daughters 'The College Experience'Editor's note: What is it about higher education not as a Bible college that extreme elements of the Christian fold, like Quiverfulls, find so incredibly threatening? Is it that their children will be completely out from under their smothering controlling influence and might just start thinking for themselves. Or is it something darker and more twisted? … [Read more...]

NLQ Question of the Week: Why is Higher Education Considered ‘Evil’?

Questionoftheweek

This is a new series we have started running on Thursdays. Examining some of the questions involving long held Quiverfull theology and life.One of the recurring themes in fundamentalist and some evangelical quiverfull Christian circles is the idea that any education that is not obtained either through some sort of post-homeschooling online training or at an approved Bible college is somehow wrong, flawed or evil. One blogger, Fire Breathing Christian, has taken the idea even farther, claiming that it's part of Satan's plan to destroy Christianity. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Rape Victim Blaming at LAF?

quotingquiverfull

by an unnamed editor at Ladies Against Feminism - Family Edge: You Can' Say That! Feminists Enraged at Rape VictimEditor's note: I know this is several weeks old but... as usual LAF takes every opportunity to slut shame rape victims. This time they used the outrage over The Pretenders Chrissy Hynde's words about her rape in her recent autobiography to drive home the point that they think if you weren't sober and dressed like a nun that you got what you deserved while bashing the feminist movement. I've refrained from bringing up Ms. Hydne's thoughts about her rape here because it always struck me more as the words of someone that has never emotionally dealt with or healed from what … [Read more...]

Stop ‘Knowing’ What Anna Duggar Will Do

lanawideopenground

by Lana Hope cross posted from her blog Wide Open GroundThe downside of the cute, quiet  ATI-patriarchal-quiverfull life of the Duggar family is now all over mainstream media. While it’s somewhat of a relief to see the public realize that conservative homeschooling is not as innocent as it seems, as an ATi alum myself, it’s also gets very triggering and downright weary to hear the media mock my childhood leaders as if it’s nothing but a good story for them. Likewise, seeing the Duggar kids pictures on the front page of the tabloids makes me sad. The Duggars aren’t a juicy story to devour. They are a broken, hurting family. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: It’s Our Jobs As Wives To Keep Husbands ‘Christ-Like’?

quotingquiverfull

by Elizabeth Wann from John Piper's Desiring God - Helpers for Unfinished HusbandsEditor's note: More of that 'control your thoughts and attitudes' from another female cultural enforcer. However I think Debi Pearl would massively disagree with this woman over what a helper's role is in a marriage. This lady says that we can graciously confront and is implying that good patriarchs are imperfect! Imagine that! … [Read more...]
