Quoting Quiverfull: Offending Others For Jesus?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Stir Up the PotEditor's note: Nancy is now saying you must offend others for Jesus. You have to get out there and tell everyone else they are doing it wrong. This is something of a switch from Nancy's usual focus on militant maternity and home. Nice jab at the government too. … [Read more...]

NLQ Question of the Week: Why Are Evangelical Christians the Only Ones Allowed to Criticize Others?

This is a series we run every Thursday. The questions are things that people who may not know much about the Quiverfull movement or even Fundamentalist or Evangelical Christianity ask about the lifestyle. Examining some of the questions involving Quiverfull theology and life can only shine a light on the toxic nature of this lifestyle choice.One thing has held true in the Quiverfull - Evangelical - Fundamentalist Christian world.  Through the years they feel that only they should have the ability to criticize, correct or teach others. Just check out tonight's Quoting Quiverfull by Steven Anderson and tomorrow morning's with Nancy Campbell. Both are classic examples. Look at the way our … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Be Patient Only With Non-Christians?

by Steven Anderson of Faithful Word Baptist Church - Be Patient With OthersEditor's note: This was sandwiched between a pile of hateful screeds calling out other pastors for fake words from God or the unforgivable sin of making a giant pile of money preaching the gospels. He is speaking of having patience only for non-Christians.The first unquoted part is not bad advice, advice I need to remind myself of on a daily basis, to be patient with others when out and about. It's not easy, but it's important in these times when the American people are so divided and we're coming up on the stress-provoking season of the holidays. Then Steven goes on to explain how that does not apply from the … [Read more...]

The Sin of Yoga Pants?

by Suzanne Titkemeyer cross posted from her blog True Love Doesn't RapeEditor's note: Written in Oct. 2016 around the time of the launch of Lori Alexander's new book 'The Power of the Transformed Wife'This morning as I was preparing upcoming posts for No Longer Quivering I ended up using a quote from always unpleasant and constantly blaming in a shameful way Lori Alexander.If you don't know who Lori is consider yourself lucky. Lori was once affiliated with Ladies Against Feminism, although it's been a while since I've seen her finger prints on anything at their site. She used to have a blog called 'Always Learning' that truthfully should have been labeled 'Always Closed Minded … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Happy Marriages Mean Wives Change to Suit Husbands?

by Larry Solomon from Biblical Gender Roles - Why Unity in Marriage Has More to do With the Wife Than the HusbandEditor's note: Larry starts his piece by returning to his most familiar of themes - wives must give sex upon demand, wives must submit, wives must treat husbands kindly and now this: change to suit your husband? So in Larry's village in Fundytown wives should be all the time changed or changing to be the perfect fit. What if the husband does not know what he wants? What if he is abusive? What if he likes the person he married just the way they are? Larry sounds like he's describing marriage as some sort of 'Westwood' situation or a partnership with a walking talking sex robot. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 8 – Infant Manifesto?

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy – Infant ManifestoEditor's note: Last little bit. What I'm not quoting is Momma reading the book "To Train Up A Child" and sharing it with Daddy followed by a tantrum the next morning at the breakfast table when the child got unsweetened oatmeal instead of the desired breakfast of cold sugary cereal. So it's a two-fer, child beating combined with Pearl dietary preferences. All this is followed with this supposed child saying they learned that whining and demanding only brought the switch and to cooperate. I cannot imagine beating a child for not liking what you served for breakfast. What type of monster does that? … [Read more...]

Can Atheists Celebrate Christmas?

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Life and Times of Bruce GerencserGrowing up in an Evangelical home, I knew that Christmas was all about the birth of our Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ. Gifts were sparse, often just two or three packages, but never far from view was the most wondrous gift of all, salvation through the atoning work of Christ on the cross. The churches I attended spent significant time each holiday season reminding congregants that Jesus was the reason for the season. Sermons against Santa Claus, consumerism, and idolatry were common, as were pleas for money to help the poor and disadvantaged. … [Read more...]

The Suspects – Is Justice Delayed Justice At All For Carol Ann Cole?

by Suzanne TitkemeyerLast week we looked at the rules and reality of trouble teen home New Bethany Home for Girls in Arcadia, Louisiana. A place where Carol Ann might have been that possibly figures into her murder. Today I was going to talk about the cruelty and abuse handed down at New Bethany by IFB pastor Mack Ford. But several things have popped up on Facebook groups involving finding Carol Ann's murderer that we must talk about.Initially I was going to delay discussing the suspects until the very end, but I think in light of the Facebook postings we need to address the list of suspects now. … [Read more...]
