Answering ‘Preparing To Be A Help Meet’ – He’s Nice, But Should That Be A Determining Point?

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: Use Biblical Principles To Run Your Home Or Have Chaos?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - One Law (thanks to Bruce Gerencser for sharing this bit on Facebook)Editor's note: This bit by Nancy is about making others follow your rules in your house and then awkwardly proclaiming this is how God's rules work too. Oddly I think that God would probably be way more relaxed about you jumping on the beds than Nancy would ever be. … [Read more...]

Is This Your Pastor?

by Ellen cross posted from her blog When Church HurtsHere is another interesting article on Covert Narcissism – specifically in the pastorate.  As I read the indicators, I was again nodding my head in agreement.Link to pdfThe bullet point list in the article talks about “one-upping you in conversation.”  I hadn’t thought much about this until I saw this point, but, yes, that happened in my very limited conversations with the pastor. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Your Husband Doesn’t Love You Anymore Until You Give Him Your Whole Body?

by Larry Solomon from Biblical Gender Roles - Why Doesn't My Husband Love Me Anymore? and as usual linked through Do Not Link to keep Larry's overweening ego in check. Red highlighting and bolding from the original by Larry.Editor's note: This long post of Larry's is a rationalization as to why guys like him don't hold hands, or shower you with flowers and compliments or treat you the same way after they marry you. Larry is chock full of wretchedly vile advice that you could do to get a little better treatment again, without putting any onus or responsibility on the husband. … [Read more...]

Beware of Church Planting Networks

by Emily Nielson Jones of Christian Patriarchal Watch List For Parents "For every 1 church plant by a mainline denomination, there are 9 church plants by an evangelical group, and most evangelical denominations were more open to women's leadership 100 years ago than they are today - for example, Evangelical Free, Baptist General Conference, Assemblies of God, various Holiness denominations, and the Wesleyan church.” ~ Dave Olson, Church Planter, Evangelical Covenant Church (which has a gender-balanced leadership) http://www.christianitytoday.com/gifted-for-leadership/2009/april/final-church-barrier-for-women-church-planter.html … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: What the Heck is ‘Nuisance Lust’?

by Doug Wilson of Blog and Mablog - Pastor Doug Wilson on Rape, Submission, Feminists and BoobsEditor's note: There is just so much completely wrong in Wilson's entire article, starting with the title. Why not use the word 'breasts' instead of the casual word 'boobs'? The way he speaks about women that do not line up with his ideas on good women, like 'herpes on heels' or 'pop up twinkie' is merely denigrating and disgusting, something no pastor or man should say. Seems to me that the entire articles main thrust is to put down women for not conforming to his personal standards. … [Read more...]

Feelings Are Fundamental

by Cindy Foster at Finding FundamentalThere is an insidious, mostly unrecognized ethic prevalent among hard-core fundamentalist Baptists (as I am sure exists among other rigid belief systems),   that emotions are largely the tool of the devil. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 7 – Michael Pearl Defending His Strawman?

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy – Spank and Save a ChildEditor's note: Finally this load of copswallop is at an end. More blaming and shaming while claiming quite falsely that the movement's children will be hiring our poor undisciplined loser children (in his mind). Tell me again who's children are living in abject poverty yet claiming they are successful? He's doubling down on a lie. … [Read more...]

Created To Need A Help Meet – Part 3 Contrasting The Types (Psychic Michael Knows All)

by Aletha cross posted from her blog Yllom Mormonp 130-131Last time we read a story about Debi going to a doctor's office, and applying the "foolproof" techniques of identifying type to relate to two different doctors. Today, we're continuing this story. Well, I say continuing this story, but really, Michael starts extrapolating about the docs. This has to be the most blatant use of his prophetic powers yet. In fact, I would say this rivals some of Debi's famous knowing-everything-about-everyone judgments. I hope you're excited. I know I am! … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 6 – Michael Pearl Defending His Strawman?

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy – Spank and Save a ChildEditor's note: Now Mr. Pearl is claiming he has five million people who have read his child training advice on beating your kids with plumbing line and only one family has taken it too far. That's so inaccurate. I can think of at least five dead children where his book was in their home according to law enforcement and the media. That's not even counting the many that didn't die where the book was found in the home. … [Read more...]
