Quoting Quiverfull: Caring What Others Do In Their Bedrooms?

quotingquiverfull

by Vaughn Ohlman from True Love Doesn't Wait - Of Sodomy and MarriageEditor's note: Von is speaking here for the decision by the Supreme Court of the United State's ruling that all forms of civil marriage between two consenting adults of any sex are legal. For years many Christians have denied that they want to control every single minor aspect of others lives, but Mr. Ohlman outs that lie by claiming that they do want to control even what you do in the privacy of your bedroom with your significant other. Where in the Bible does it say to police the sexual antics of others? It doesn't. … [Read more...]

“Lies Women Believe” Review: 45 – 62

lies-women-believe

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Samantha P Field.comThis chapter of Lies Women Believe (lies we believe “About God”) illustrates rather perfectly what I was talking about in my last post– how Christians taught me that my own heart can’t be trusted because it’s hell-bent on deceiving me. Nancy spends a lot of time laying the groundwork for the rest of the book, which is primarily the idea that your life experience cannot be trusted.But, before we get to that, let’s begin with something I agree with her on: … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Is It Ever Appropriate To Hand Out Tracts?

quotingquiverfull

by Trish Ramos of Fish With Trish - The Righteous Aren't Always As Bold As A Lion LOLEditor's note: You remember Trish, don't you? She's the one that said that when you see another woman wearing something you think is immodest you should go up to her and point at the immodest display part and say 'uh oh' before handing them a tract on modesty. She's also a big supporter and friend to the guy we posted yesterday who thinks he's Christianity's answer to Jon Stewart - Todd Friel. Here's my question between his show and her tracts - are there appropriate times and places to hand out tracts? What about at a restaurant when people are just trying to get their meal on? Where is the line between … [Read more...]

Duggar News in the Aftermath of Josh Duggar’s Confession

image by Suzanne Titkemeyer

by Suzanne TitkemeyerOne of the silliest things about the Duggar-verse is the fact that People Magazine cannot stop promoting this family in a positive light, even when there's nothing positive to say. On the day the news broke of Josh Duggar's memberships at Ashley Madison and OkCupid earlier that same day People published and released theirr latest issue that was seeking to promote the Duggars as the super righteous Christian family they've been pretending to be. Mere hours. It illustrated that clearly People magazine has some sort of big financial stake in the Duggars remaining on television. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Stop Nagging and Your Husband Will Stop Watching Porn?

quotingquiverfull

by Todd Friel from Wretched TV - A man stops watching porn after his wife stops nagging himEditor's note: This guy claims he's like the Christian version of Jon Stewart and seems to think his online show is the Christian equivalent of 'The Daily Show'. Not even close. What he is seems to be a snarky-esque hipster version of Pat Robertson. Here he's claiming that the way to get your man to stop with the porn is by your kindness and submission. Has that ever really worked for anyone you're known? Or is it just a piece of Christian mythology? … [Read more...]
