The Power of a Transformed Wife – Part One Chapter One – Where is the Love?

by Suzanne TitkemeyerThis chapter is entirely the personal history of author Lori Alexander, and from the way it reads I would venture to guess that perhaps the author has a touch of psychopathy because she seems like she lacks a lot of human emotions in her retelling of her life. There seems like there are lots of red flags for a certain type of disorder in this book. There's sure no love here for anyone and Lori is sharing many stories that reflect as badly on her parents and others as herself. You shouldn't have to keep putting down others to inflate yourself. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Revisionist Spin Post Election?

by Colin Campbell from Meat For Men - The Right to be BornEditor's note: This is interesting because Colin had said some rather harsh things about Donald Trump last year, declaring he was too sinful and demonic to ever be president. But as soon as his choice dropped from the race he shut up about who exactly he was supporting. Now he's praising Trump after not directly supporting the man in public, only through the writing of others. Fair weather friends. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Working Outside the Home is Pure Selfishness?

by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife - Dogmatic Teaching on Keepers of the HomeEditor's note: I think 'dogged' is the operative word here more than 'dogmatic'. It's Lori harping on her constant refrain once again, that women that work outside the home cannot possibly keep it clean or prepare decent meals. I guess she doesn't realize how many different services, devices and different ways you can do things now that makes it entirely possible to work full time, have great meals cooked, a clean home and well-taught children. Her central message isn't even Biblical considering in actual Biblical times women worked along side their men and extended family in family-owned concerns. This … [Read more...]

My Thoughts on the Complicity of Rural America in the Election of Donald Trump

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Life and Times of Bruce GerencserEditor's note: I know we usually have an NLQ Question of the Week on Thursday afternoons but for the next few days I may be skipping regular features to bring you differing views of what just happened this week in our political sphere. So much of what will happen under the new president will affect every facet of our lives, and we know that the Religious Right of Quiverfull is going to try to use this election to turn back many of our freedoms. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Stop Defrauding Men on Facebook!?

by Kenneth Wieske from Reformed Perspective as quoted by The Transformed Wife - The Shame of Public NakednessEditor's note: Lori and the author are defining 'Public Nakedness' by the narrow definition of a woman in a pair of panties and a bra, which could cover a long, long list of possible levels of modesty/immodesty, from three postage stamp sized pieces of cloth with string all the way to sturdy mid-thigh to mid-arm Mormon underwear. There's a lot of room there for the interpretation of immodesty. The gist is that this Christian man is feeling defrauded by someone else's Facebook picture. Real mature. Instead of  just clicking off he's whining about it. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Being Effeminate Worst Thing Ever?

by Tim Bayly of the Bayly Blog - On the Election: A Prophet in Our MidstEditor's note: Picked this curious bit out of a standard Evangelical ranting about how they must band together and vote in Donald Trump as the Christian savior of American politics. This piece starts the article and it seems curious and bizarre to be this obsessional about what is effeminate. Which begs the question: What are all these manly men so afraid of here? … [Read more...]

Answering ‘Preparing To Be A Help Meet’ – Men’s Food Preferences?

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. 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...]
