Quoting Quiverfull: Prophets Can Be Recognized By Their Jerk Behavior?

by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife - What is the Gift of Prophecy?Editor's note: We've quoted Lori Alexander many times this week and we've done it because she's been spouting some particularly abusive nonsense lately. There is nothing I'd like better than to not quote her. But when you throw rocks at other female cultural enforcers, and try to promote other ministries like the doings of Michael "Let's Beat The Children" Pearl and Bill "Let's Grope The Teenaged Girls -Grabby Hands" Gothard you've gone pretty far away from the teachings of Jesus. Notice this entire article is about two main points a) women trying to be prophetic is wrong, and b) prophets are allowed to act like … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Eve Woke Up to Her Home So Should You?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Do You Love Home?Editor's note: Do you think that Nancy ever really reads her Bible, or does she simply cherry pick only those verses that support her warped view? Most everyone, male or female, loves their home and it has nothing to do with the Bible. And Eve opened her eyes to her home? What. The. Guacamole? Didn't Adam and Eve live in the Garden of Eden first and later out in the world? None of this blathering is Biblical or true. … [Read more...]

How to Encourage Your Husband: Part 3 – Verbalize

This is a series looking at the marriage advice given in Nancy Campbell’s book ‘How to Encourage Your Husband’.While packing for a move I have turned up are books, terrible idiotic books filled with toxic advice. One of those books is by Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies ‘How to Encourage Your Husband’. I think I ended up with this book in the aftermath of leaving my old church, given to me by one of my former friends that thought it would ‘help’ my marriage since in her eyes my husband leaving our old church meant that I wasn’t doing my job of wife well enough. Reading through this book now I cannot help but laugh at some of the suggestions. The book is entirely written by commenters and co … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Pink Dyed Hair is the Devil?

by Doug Wilson from Blog and Mablog - When You Paint the BarnEditor's note: When did pink dyed hair start to represent such a threat to Christianity? Doug is riding/screwing one of his favorite hobby horses in this piece by saying that any tattoos, hair dye, clothing or accessory that makes a woman stand out is a sin. Oh, but doesn't everyone want to take fashion advice from a guy that looks like a cut-rate department store Santa on a bender? Sorry, that was mean, but whenever I see people that aren't so attractive trying to police the choices of others it makes me so angry. He treats women like sinful children instead of fully functioning adults with a right to wear whatever makes them … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Justifying Judging Others?

by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife - Righteous Judgment Versus Hypocritical JudgmentEditor's note: Yes, I know two Alexander posts on the same day is a bit much, but I could not let this laugh riot of a post justifying all the merde Lori talks about more famous Christian teachers go without a commentary. If I'm reading Lori's word salad right on her site she seems to be in defensive mode over her right to judge other women merely because they don't do it the way she thinks is right. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Don’t Spend Your Husband’s Money?

by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife - Dissipating Her Husband's SubstanceEditor's Note: Oh my! Lori is beating this dead horse/straw woman again. But we all know that she has no real idea how to manage family finances, real savings and investing. But the big point I think she's missing here is that many women have their own money and earn their own money. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Homeschooling the Wrong Way Leads to Porn and Other Issues

by Debi Pearl from No Greater Joy Magazine - The PuristsEditor's note: Get your forks and salad dressing out as this is some of the craziest sounding word salad I've seen in quite some time from the poison pen of Debi Pearl. To boil the entire thing down it seems to be saying that allowing structure, rules and laws into the homeschooling movement has lead to unmarried adult daughters at home and whole families becoming involved in pornography. Random selections from the article are below. Of course Debi never explains how they fell into porn or dope smoking, she just accuses them of doing so. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Are You Afraid of Your Husband?

by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife - Wives Are Commanded to Fear Their HusbandsEditor's note: There's not much here or in the original post that speaks to 'fearing' your husband. Everyone fears something, usually things like nuclear war, or perhaps losing a relationship or financial problems. Husbands? Not so much. Fear and love should not go hand in hand no matter what Bible commentary Lori consults.And for that matter Lori loves to claim that all marriages where the husband and wife do not practice the same version of Christianity as her are filled with discord and fighting. Not true. Most people strive mightily to have peace and harmony in their homes. It's not just a … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Jesus Should Be Your Only Tattoo?

by Doug Wilson from Blog and Mablog - No Baptismal ScarEditor's note: Doug Wilson says that the shame of abuse drives women get to tattoos, piercings and participate in cutting themselves. According to Doug because Jesus was pierced and cut on the cross you should not do any of those three things because you just need to 'come to Jesus'. So much of this series Doug wrote on the aftermath of sexual abuse is just disgusting and wrong! … [Read more...]
