It’s Not That Complicated: Part 1 Chapter 11

by Mel cross posted from her blog When Cows and Kids CollideAll quotes from the book are in blue.Ahh.  Now we launch into all the fun of reading about how Anna Sofia and Elizabeth have judging all their  friends failed (or not so failed) relationships.I'm sure I'm going to say this a lot, but I find it crass that two young women who have had a grand total of a single rumored courtship between the two of them expect us to listen to them about how to have a healthy relationship with men. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Female Cultural Enforcers Coming Out Against Hillary Clinton?

by Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies and Lori Alexander from The Transformed WifeEditor's note: Remember the other day Bruce Gerencser wrote about those short-sided one-issue voters? The Quiverfull crowd is exposing themselves as exactly a one-issue voter. They don't care about children that are already here, goodness no! Only that no woman in the country have access to any sort of abortion or birth control. Who cares that funding for children's health care, food stamps, education and other things that show that they value the children who are here have been gutted? Who cares that Donald Trump clearly is a scary guy with no idea how to run the country, has said he would use nukes and has … [Read more...]

by Debi Pearl from No Greater Joy Magazine - The Great Grandma CaperEditor's note: Elements of this story strike me as pure fantasy knowing all the times both Debi and Michael have mentioned disciplining and switching even their own grandchildren. What do you think? … [Read more...]

Shackled Girl: Part 14 – People Give Up, Ask Dog to Comfort Victims

by PropinquaEditor’s note: It’s not a man-bites-dog story. It’s a man-begs-dog-to-take-control story.Prosecuting attorneys in the horrific Ciboro case are just hoping against hope that the judge will let a dog named Anna into the courtroom to comfort two alleged victims of child rape. This is a genuinely great idea—and an admission that the humans in the case are not up to the task.And who would be? One victim is under ten, and the other is 13. Here’s a statement of the obvious: … [Read more...]

Questioning the Pearls: Should I Out My Husband?

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: Doug Wilson Thinks Triggers Are a Lie?

by Doug Wilson from Blog and Mablog - Triggered SchmiggeredEditor's note: Keep in mind that this man is the same guy that had no problem marrying a sex offender pedophile or allowing him access to children in the Reformed IFB church Wilson pastors. He thinks that anyone having any problem with things he personally disapproves of is not a valid option. In a time when so many women have been triggered by the words of presidential candidate Donald Trump and a host of other things Wilson thinks that being triggered is not a real thing. … [Read more...]

The Women Fighting Back

NLQ Founder Vyckie Garrison and NLQ Admin Suzanne Titkemeyer were recently interviewed by Dylan Brethour for Vice.com about their time in the Quiverfull movement: Former member Suzanne explains: "Quiverfull families believe that they have to trust the Lord with their family planning... It's based off the idea that God intends to fill your quiver and blessed is the man whose quiver is full of arrows." Another ex-member, Vyckie Garrison, calls Quiverfull "pro-life rhetoric on steroids". I spoke to both women about why they joined, life as a true believer, and what finally pushed them to leave. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 2 – Husbands Should Control Wives?

 by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife - Husbands Using My Posts to Convict Their WivesEditor's note: Still not entirely sure what's so evil and wrong with a working wife asking a working husband to help out with the chores and running of the household. If the working hours are evenly split between the two should not also the parenting tasks and housework be too? What about splitting according to who is skilled at what task?  Lori spends a lot of her posting in the unquoted parts telling working women how to pray for under employed husbands so that they can squeeze a buck and stay home instead of meeting the financial needs of the family. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 1 – Husbands Should Control Wives?

by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife - Husbands Using My Posts to Convict Their WivesEditor's note: Notice that Lori uses the word 'convict' as in to find someone guilty of some offense, instead of 'convince' which would likely be the more proper usage. Actually on second thought, it should more be 'bludgeon' as in using Lori's post as a weapon to force their will on the wife. She means 'convict' as in 'batter the woman into accepting she is wrong.' What a way to live your life, constantly calling for the belittlement of women everywhere. … [Read more...]
