Quoting Quiverfull: Spiritual Eunuchs?

by Steven Anderson from Faithful Word Baptist Church - Born That Way Ministries ExposedEditor's note: The entire notion that some IFB pastors are starting to accept the idea that sexuality is hardwired within us by birth is at least a little encouraging. But then Anderson decides the best reaction to this shift is to use his personal blog to doxx all the pastors lining up with that particular theological shift.Here's the ministry he's upset with - Born That Way Ministries … [Read more...]

Answering ‘Preparing To Be A Help Meet’ – Can You Like a Man Without Knowing it?

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: Rod of Motherhood?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Your Humble, But Miraculous RodEditor's note: Notice how Nancy is always promising a down through the generations victory if you just do motherhood her way? She manages to put down working mothers, modern society and anyone that does not do it her way. Failures are always blamed on some small deviation of the rules. Why not just be content to raise your children to be good people without worrying about the influence they will have on the world and future generations? … [Read more...]

Crimson (Butt) and Clover

by Suzanne Titkemeyer cross posted from her blog Every Breaking WaveThis could also have been titled "How I Got Spanked For Dancing to a Tommy James and the Shondells Song"One of the few benefits of having been sidelined with my various ailments lately as I've been able to indulge in one of my past times in a huge way. I am a voracious reader. I love books and my Kindle is always loaded with a crazy variety of reads, from biographies to history to straight up fiction to things from university presses. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Feminism is Satanic?

by Lori Alexander of The Transformed Wife - Feminism During the Roman EmpireEditor's note: Word salad by Lori explaining why feminism is Satan's plan for destroying the world. Did not quote the piece before this that involved Roman culture and head coverings but it is a spectacular illogical leap from that to this, just like the crazy non sequitur leaps from topic to topic in her book 'The Power of the Transformed Wife' She needs an editor badly. … [Read more...]

Celebrate Yourself! Part 2

by AJ cross posted from her blog I Am Phoenix I love music. I play the piano and just started learning to play guitar. Animals. I am drawn towards them. I feel more comfortable around them than I do around most people. I feel like I am grounded around them, and I draw energy and peace from being around them. I like to think that I bounce that energy and those good vibes back to them. I was holding my nephew's bunny Alfie the other night. I was at a dinner party and I was on the verge of passing out and feeling sick. But if I concentrated on Alfie, I could re-center myself and not go as deep into a crash as I otherwise would have.  Alfie's nose just kept wiggling and his whiskers kept time wi … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: No Technology, Only Outdoor Play Time?

by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife - Children Are Bored, Impatient, Easily Upset and FriendlessEditor's note: Luckily for Lori she lives in a part of the country where you can surf year round and the weather is nice enough to sent the kids out into the backyard. Not everyone has that option. Sometimes the weather interferes with outdoor time and it might not be inappropriate to allow the substitution of screen time or quiet indoor play. In the winter I used to take my children to the indoor skateboard park, or over to an indoor trampoline place or other activity that didn't always involve playing outside. That's the problem with broad sweeping generalizations, they don't always … [Read more...]

Celebrate Yourself! Part 1

by AJ cross posted from her blog I Am Phoenix So I have been comparing my old beliefs and new beliefs a good bit lately.  I guess there was one old and new habit that I haven't explored much yet. Maybe I haven't explored it because I haven't settled comfortably into the new habit even as of now? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Work Ethic Keeps People Out of Jail?

by Michael Pearl as quoted by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife - Children are Bored, Impatient, Easily Upset and FriendlessEditor's note: Interesting little bit of fear-mongering Lori's using to scare people into teaching their children to be hard workers. I'm not sure work ethic is one of those things that can be necessarily taught so much as modeled and encouraged. This is the third piece quoted from Lori's posting on children yet there's nothing in her article to support her assertion that kids are easily upset and friendless. … [Read more...]

Banging the Buttons

by Virginia Knowles cross posted from her blog Watch the ShepherdWith a malevolent yet gleeful grin, a young man strode up and rapidly banged the button on the right: VERY POOR. Like ten times. Huh? What's with that? … [Read more...]
