Sea Legs

Ellen

by Ellen cross posted from her blog When Church HurtsFor the first several weeks after we were tossed out of our church I felt like I still had sea legs.  I had learned over the years to walk somewhat steadily – or at least with a great deal of familiarity – as the wind and waves of spiritual abuse crashed over and around me.  Though I found myself on solid ground, my body, mind, and spirit continued for a time to lurch and sway as though I were still on board that hulking monstrosity of a church from whence my spiritually abusive treatment had pounded unabatedly. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 6 – Kids Saying ‘F*ck’ and Explaining Bestiality in the Church?

quotingquiverfull

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - SanctuaryEditor's note: Whew, finally the end and it's all Michael doubling down on his message of control everything you expose your children to and homeschool them.  Don't forget to put on the full armor of God too! The question all of this brings up to my mind is has the church really changed that much in the last thirty years beyond the rock and roll worship music, fancy lights and technology? I'm not sure it has. … [Read more...]

Answering ‘Preparing To Be A Help Meet’ – Is Romance In Dating A Sin?

Answering

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 18 … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 5 – Kids Saying ‘F*ck’ and Explaining Bestiality in the Church?

quotingquiverfull

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - SanctuaryEditor's note: So according to Michael anyone you might meet is for you to proselytize to or avoid if they don't line up with your particular flavor of faith? That's too bad because he might have, I don't know, actually learned something from others different than him. I wish I could say this is an April Fool's Day joke but sadly enough Mr. Pearl is serious. … [Read more...]

Fundamentalist Patriarch Dave Buehner Objects To Vyckie Garrison’s 2014 Speech

Youtube screen grab of Vyckie Garrison speaking at the American Atheist Conference 2014

Remember last year, right around this time, when NLQ founder Vyckie Garrison spoke at the American Atheist convention in Salt Lake City, Utah on Easter weekend? Her speech was shared internet wide and articles written about it. It was titled "How Playing The Good Christian Wife Almost Killed Me."Apparently it took nearly a year for the news of Vyckie's speech and the articles to reach Kevin Swanson's radio sidekick, boot licker and all around enabler Dave Buehner. Okay, so I know Swanson is always carrying on during his show about how they're hiding in a basement bunker style but you'd think they'd occasionally leave the bunker for the outside world. At least for a Chik Fil A run once in … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 4 – Kids Saying ‘F*ck’ and Explaining Bestiality in Church?

quotingquiverfull

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - SanctuaryEditor's note: Now Michael aims for the trite cliched Christian answer. Not only control every moment of those childrens lives, you must put on the imaginary armor of God. Followed by parent-blaming if the children don't turn out as obedient little moral robots. Michael, like Debi, never misses any opportunity to belittle or shame others. … [Read more...]

Dolon Hickmon has written a review of Patheos blogger Wendy Thomas Russell's new book "Relax, It's Just God" for The Humanist.Com.

It cites research data from a large group of secular parents positing when and what to teach your children, or if you should bother teaching your children any knowledge of faith or belief. … [Read more...]

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - SanctuaryEditor's note: So who controls Daddy's sin urges if Michael is claiming that children are naturally sinful and flesh and blood just like him? Go to the bathroom with your child? No outside contact at all? Sounds like prison to me. … [Read more...]

Male Blame Shifting Over Immodest Dress

suzannetitkemeyer

by Suzanne Titkemeyer cross posted from her blog What Would Roger Sterling Do?So a couple of weeks ago I mentioned I have my alarm clock set to American Family Radio for the purposes of jolting my butt out of bed quickly on those days I must be somewhere in a timely fashion.This week I kept waking up to a man being interviewed by a ministry about his slide down the slippery slope of lust and fornication. He copped to a long list of sexual peccadilloes over the course of a few days time. It seemed like the second he left his home and homeschooling for a 'worldly' university he went from chaste to trying to insert his naughty bits into any open hole attached to a woman. … [Read more...]
