Quoting Quiverfull: Part 2 – A Woman’s Submission Determines Her Husband’s Success?

quotingquiverfull

by Lori Alexander of Always Learning - Are You Preventing Your Husband's Success?Editor's note: I'm afraid this isn't any better than yesterday's bit. She's still venturing into legal territory she has no business in. You cannot refuse to hire someone merely based on how their marriage appears to you from the outside. Interviewing people who know the family is pretty extreme and invasive. They might check the applicant's social media accounts, but not everyone in the family. She claims this is what large corporations does. No, no they do not. They may run psychological testing, such as a personality test to determine your honesty levels or to make sure you are emotionally stable. Some … [Read more...]

Justin Harris is going to be receiving an award tonight from the Family Council Action Committee at a fundraising dinner for Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz.

Answering

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: Part 1 – A Woman’s Submission Determines Her Husband’s Success?

quotingquiverfull

by Lori Alexander of Always Learning - Are You Preventing Your Husband's Success?Editor's note: I believe what Mrs. Alexander is saying here about rejecting possible employees based upon how submissive their wives are violates national labor law. Seems like this would fall under the protections in place to keep employers discriminating against potential employees based on religion and/or sex. She should be careful not to post her reasoning for rejecting candidates online like this where anyone can see it and use it against her in court. Either way, the idea of a wife's submission being key to the success or failure of his career is laughable at best.  There are careers where the ability … [Read more...]

A Few Thoughts on Abortion and Planned Parenthood Videos

Three day old human embyro. Image from The Life and Times of Bruce Gerencser

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Life and Times of Bruce GerencserI’ve been asked to give my take on the Planned Parenthood videos.When it comes to Planned Parenthood’s mission, to provide healthcare to women, I am 100% in their corner. Providing abortions is a small part of Planned Parenthood’s services, and defunding Planned Parenthood would have a deleterious effect on the health of poor women. Attempts to defund Planned Parenthood are driven by religious belief and bad science. We live in a secular state, one that supposedly separates church and state and one that values science; yet, when it comes to abortion, the debate is framed by religious claims that result … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Fathers Matter Little In Raising Godly Children?

quotingquiverfull

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Your Powerful InfluenceEditor's note: Nancy seems to be dismissing the important of a father in the lives of children, denying all that patriarchy blathering she's done for years now. So, which is it? Fathers and husbands are all powerful and must be obeyed, or it's alright to not bow to them if they aren't being what you would consider a 'Good Christian Man'? I am confused. … [Read more...]

“Lies Women Believe” Review: 27 – 44

lies-women-believe

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Samantha Field.ComThis chapter introduces us to the methodology that Nancy will be using through the rest of Lies Women Believe. If you’ve read the book before you’re probably familiar with “Eve’s diary,” where Nancy fictionalizes an autobiographical telling of Eve’s life, starting with the day she’s exiled from the Garden. The first time I read this in college, I actually skipped these sections because I found them boring– Nancy’s strength isn’t narrative writing. … [Read more...]

by Steven L. Anderson from Faithful Word Baptist Church - You are the reason people hate Christians!Editor's note: Perfect illustration of what Christian Martyrbating looks like. If his goal is to get people to hate him I'd say he's well accomplished that. Anderson is coming to DC in September to do another 'soul winning' on the streets. … [Read more...]

News: Gloriavale – New Zealand Patriarchal Quiverfull Cult

news

by Suzanne TitkemeyerOne of the British newspapers, the Daily Mail, recently ran an article about a religious group in New Zealand that lives entirely by the New Testament in isolation from society. They call themselves "Gloriavale"Their version of Christianity seems to have more in common with some of the Fundamentalist Ladder Day Saints than most Fundamentalist Christian groups. One of the big distinctions that runs through Gloriavale and FLDS is that a group of 12 men, all church elders, decide who will marry who. No choice is given to the potential brides and grooms. Many times the matched are based mostly on how distantly related they are to avoid birth defects from inbreeding. … [Read more...]

by Shoshon Tama-Sweet cross posted from Christian Patriarchal Watch List For ParentsEditor's  note: This post is written as a Christian response to the Michael Pearls and Biblical Gender Roles guys of this world. Yes, it's from a Christian perspective.thoughts by a Christian guy working around the world on global gender issues..."As men, and men who are Christ followers, we have a LOT of work to do to understand what our Godly calling is, how we understand ourselves, and how we treat women. At its heart, this work is a work of the imagination: we must re-imagine who we are, and who God intends us to be, as men, and as men in relationship to women. Doing this work is very very … [Read more...]
