Quoting Quiverfull: Women Working Outside the House Create Jerkish Husbands?

by Lori Alexander from Always Learning - Unloved and Insecure HusbandsEditor's note: While I agree loving your husband deeply when he's struggling is a good response I think that Lori is missing the best solutions of all, that have nothing to do with divorce - MARRIAGE COUNSELING - MENTAL HEALTH PROFESSIONALS - even things like men's accountability groups or right type pastoral counseling. As usual Lori advises suffering in silence and submitting harder instead of trying to figure what the real underlining problem is and taking legitimate proven steps to solve it. In fundamental quiverfull town is all or nothing, submit/suffer/smile/pray or get a divorce. … [Read more...]

Shackled Girl: Part 11 – It’s a Conspiracy!

Quoting Quiverfull: Legalized Female Rebellion?

by Larry Solomon of Biblical Gender Roles - The American Idol of EqualityEditor's note: Why is it I hear Larry speaking all of this in a super whiny voice, like a man begging his betters for something?

At Dawn, Look to the East

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog SamanthaPField.comOne of my favorite scenes from almost any film is at the end of the Battle of Helm’s Deep, from The Two Towers. They’ve retreated from the walls, and you can feel the hope fading. You feel the same shocked horror as Eowyn when she realizes the end is coming, and coming quickly. When everything seems to be at its most dark and desperate, King Théoden looks at Aragorn, frozen, shocked, despairing. … [Read more...]

Smoking weed? Drinking booze? Masturbating? Copping a feel on the back of the church bus? Making out with the preacher’s daughter? Running through the third base coach’s stop sign and sliding into home? Hanging out with “worldly” school friends? Going to the dance? Going to the prom? Such behaviors are sins against the thrice holy God, says the preacher down at First Baptist Church. Hoping that good old-fashioned Evangelical guilt and fear wi … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: The Role of Women?

by Steven Anderson from Faithful Word Baptist Church - The Duties of a Pastor's WifeEditor's note: Alright, so I know I've featured Anderson a great deal in the recent past, but he's been a fount of weird since the shootings in Orlando. His pulpit poundings from his blog lately read more like him answering critical church members more than anything else. Here he defends what his wife's role should be in the church. What do you think is really going on at Faithful Word behind the scenes? Is it starting to rattle apart? Also, this is the first time I've ever seen anyone suggest that the pastor's wife clean the church or design the bulletin. That's always been the responsibility of others … [Read more...]
