Quoting Quiverfull: Part 1 – Silly Women Use Prozac?

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - Drug AddictsEditor's note: This article started out as a rant against boys taking Ritalin, but very swiftly morphed into Michael telling mothers exactly what was wrong with them. It's pretty sick and fits with our recent discussions in the comments on the lack of all compassion and disdain that Michael holds everyone but himself and Jesus. This is going to take a couple of days to unpack. Where does it say in the Bible that taking medicine for a problem is a sin? … [Read more...]

Happy Halloween!

Found this on Facebook this morning. No idea who the originator is but was reminded of that recent discussion where The Transformed Wife's Lori Alexander talked about giving out organic lollipops attached to scripture for Halloween. Your child is much more likely to bring home a religious tract or candy with scripture attached than any candy that has been tampered with or filled with drugs. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Love is Overrated?

by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife -When We Love Someone, We Want Them to Go to HeavenEditor's note: It's time to visit opposite world again, Lori Alexander and her claims that you have to preach sin, hell fire, and damnation or you are wrong, wrong, wrong. This seems more like another attempt to pile on any others attempting to teach just so her book and website are the only ones available. … [Read more...]

Questioning the Pearls: How Do I Stop the Lying?

For well over a year we’ve been running a second Answering ‘Preparing To Be A Help Meet’ on Sundays, filled with questions by young ladies trying to get ready for marriage. Since we’ve run through many of the questions on their site it’s time to shift Sundays to something else, like perhaps examining the cornucopia of probably fake emails and questions that Michael and Debi Pearl of No Greater Joy post on their website and the possibly poisonous answers they give. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Loving Someone is Hating Them?

by Matt Walsh of the Matt Walsh Blog as a quoted comment from his Facebook page.Editor's note: Found this on Lori Alexander's blog. The discussion is how if you really have God's love for people who are sinning you have to attack or put them down, or harass them into heaven. Apparently in this version of Christianity if you don't agree with the behavior of others you cannot just love and accept them, you have to keep shouting your disapproval as 'love'. … [Read more...]

Do Hurt People, Hurt People?

by Living Liminal cross posted from her blog Living LiminalThere is an old saying, "Hurt people, hurt people."The idea is that people who have been hurt will lash out and hurt others in their pain. Sounds reasonable... sort of...Except for the fact that some of the kindest, gentlest people I know are those who have been hurt deeply. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Allowing Your Husband to be Humbled is a Good Thing?

by Debi Pearl from No Greater Joy - Tying Strings and BowsEditor's note: This strange story and the small quoted part below illustrates something very troubling in Quiverfull marriage - the idea that you are happy when your husband is publicly humiliated in some small way. In the rest of the piece Debi joyfully giggles about Michael being laughed at and pointed at while he was out in public and how she never bothered to tell him before he left that his hair was filled with pink and yellow barrettes from his daughters grooming him while he napped. The very fact that Debi would not tell him to remove the barrettes … [Read more...]

Even being forced to read about Miss Haversham and Pip in 'Great Expectations' wasn't this bad.Last week we covered how the town IFB pastor George … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Men Quit Your Job To Be Home?

by Gabriel Pearl of No Greater Joy - Men of ActionEditor's note: Gab is claiming he's not telling men to quit their jobs and stay home grubbing out a subsistence living, but yes, that's exactly what he said in the unquoted part of this article. He's pushing a life style like the Pearls, with daddy hunting/fishing/whatever and momma homeschooling the brood without worldly outside influences. … [Read more...]
