quotingquiverfull

by Debi Pearl from No Greater Joy - Obsessions Editor's note: We'll be sharing this article in bits and pieces over the next few days since so much of it is so sheerly awful. It's one of the clearest examples of an over bearing husband's crummy behavior in the world of Christian Patriarch Movement and is rife with abusive behavior and explaining/minimizing that same behavior. Today Debi explains about Michael's hunting of those wascally wabbits. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: When is it ‘Intentionally Available’ and When is it ‘Stalking’?

quotingquiverfull

by Kristen Clark from Girl Defined - How to be Intentionally Available Without Chasing BoysEditor's note: Remember all those screeds by the Botkin sisters, Von Ohlman and others in the Quiverfull Evangelical Christian movement about girls keeping their hearts pure waiting for courtship?  This is a bit different. The author started out by pointing out that Ruth pursued Boaz in a serious way to indicate she wanted him for her husband and she goes on to explain how a 'mature' Christian girl is allowed to do the same. The problem being is that some of this advice comes across like something someone obsessed might do instead of  a 'mature' person. Life is so much simpler outside the E … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Single Girls Get To Be ‘Holy’?

quotingquiverfull

by Anna at Young Keepers of the Home - How Should We View Being Single?Editor's note: Whenever I run across ladies that say use your single years to be holy and once you marry you must be serving and pleasing your husbands and children I just want to ask them why they limit themselves to such teeny tiny little boxes for their life plans. Many of the women in the Bible held up as examples didn't lead such scripted lives in a limited sphere so why do that to yourself? Quiverfull theology sets you up for this life of being less than your talents and desires. … [Read more...]

Sociopathic Leaders

by Ellen cross posted from her blog When Church HurtsI read an interesting post at pimppreacher.com this weekend.  You can find the full article here: http://pimppreacher.com/post/111132531195/is-your-pastor-or-pastors-wife-a-sociopath.In it, the author lists seven “patterns of behavior” for sociopathic pastors and/or their wives.  As my husband and I read through this list together, we were astonished, once again, at the parallels to our own experience.“#1 Sociopaths Never Apologize and Are Incapable of Feeling Shame, Guilt or Remorse.”  Those of you who have read my story know that there was never an apology, and ultimately, it was my husband’s demand that they apologize to me t … [Read more...]

Excessive Modesty Makes Me Feel Objectified

Permissiontolivemelissa

by Melissa cross posted from her blog Permission To Live This last weekend we went to a large park with the kids and as we piled out of the van I noticed a Mennonite family was there. A teenage girl followed a toddler around the park, both of them wearing the long plain dresses that hid every shape of their young bodies. The mother sat on a park bench quietly watching while the husband and brother stood nearby arms folded, grimly surveying the area. I watched a young girl about age 9 climbing quietly up and down the play structures, her ankle-length dress billowing around her, her hair tucked into a small bonnet. … [Read more...]

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Who Is Your Best Friend?Editor's note: Instead of fear-shaming women into being the BEST MOMS EVER!!! this bit tries to fear-shame you into not having a best friend that isn't your husband. Sorry, Nancy, not buying it. Having friends not in the family is an emotionally healthy thing and doesn't mean you don't love or respect your husband. … [Read more...]
