Not Quoting Quiverfull: Unbreakable Kimmy Schmitt

Notquoting

NLQ SASBN member Boze Herrington has written a review of the new Netflix show "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmitt" for The Guardian newspaper. If you've not seen this new television show you might want to watch a few episodes. It's a comedy and yes, it is somewhat silly at times, but the draw for anyone in the former Quiverfull movement is that the show tackles the difficult issue of what it is like when you leave a cult and your entire frame of reference on life is what you learned within the cult. It manages to capture that perfect awkwardness in readjusting or adjusting for the first time to the outside world. … [Read more...]

News: Adoption Rehomer Justin Harris Does Not Want Raped Minors Having Abortions

news

You would think that Arkansas Representative Justin Harris, who has been in the news lately for rehoming his two adopted daughters with a rapist, would at least allow that scandal to die down before embarking in another controversial action. Now he's sponsoring a bill that will make it illegal for minors to receive abortions. … [Read more...]

Tightening of the Bible Belt

by Kaleesha Williams cross posted from her blog The Lost (and Found) Mind of Kaleesha WilliamsMy parents visited us the other day. They live only 30 mins away but we don’t get together very often. No particular reason, just life things. And we’re each 15 minutes from town, in opposite directions, so there’s no just stopping by on your way somewhere. It was a nice visit. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Young Girls Going to ISIS Because of ‘Feminism’?

quotingquiverfull

by Mrs. Jessi L. from Ladies Against Feminism - Western Culture, ISIS and the Longings of the HeartWARNING!!! If you go to Ladies Against Feminism and click on their link to ISIS. NSA, Homeland Security and law enforcement routinely monitor visitors to sites linked with terrorist ties!Editor's note: One of the most awkward segues from 'ISIS Evil Muslim Terrorists' to 'They just need Jesus' seen in a long time. Reads like the author feels compelled to point out things in Islam that are considered good in Quiverfull and Fundamentalist Christianity, yet condemns the girls for not doing it for Christ. Everyone does need to feel as though they have a purpose in life, but who is to say … [Read more...]

But Jesus Never Mentioned Gay People

Image from Defeating The Dragons - Samantha Field

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating The Dragons A few years ago, a friend of mine put up a link on Facebook with the a title something like “Every Verse Where Jesus Talks about Homosexuality.” Puzzled, I clicked through … only to get a completely blank page, with nothing but the title. And some ads, because, y’know, capitalism. I laughed, especially when I saw a number of confused people commenting on the facebook post, wondering why the page wouldn’t load. I think it’s one of the few click-bait articles I’ve ever enjoyed, mostly because I enjoy pointed humor. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Biblical Spanking?

quotingquiverfull

by Chip Ingram of Living On The Edge.Org and Focus On The Family - The Biblical Approach to Spanking Editor's note: While Chip's seven steps in the process to spanking are mostly good parenting I have to question if adding spanking to the rest of it is really necessary. Aren't there better ways to punish that hitting your child? Very surprised to hear Ingram approve of spanking as he seems in the sermons I've heard to be a bit more progressive than the average Fundi-Gelical pastor. … [Read more...]

News: Jana Duggar Leaves ’19 Kids & Counting’ For Real Life

news

If this is factual then - Run, Jana RUN!First, let me say I do not know for certain if this is real news or manufactured Duggar drama merely meant to drive eyeballs to the television show. It's popping up only in places such as Ok! Magazine, various television reality blogs and some internet news sources not well known for their veracity, such as the Examiner and Radar Online. It's also one of those articles that quotes an anonymous Duggar insider. Some of those 'insider' articles have turned out not to be true. … [Read more...]

Oh Daughters of Fundamentalism, Take Upon Yourselves the Cloak of Self-Deception

NLQ original image

by Sarah Henderson cross posted from her blog Feminist in Spite of Them I recently witnessed a young girl who is struggling a bit who expressed that she was a bit unhappy with her life, being told that she just needs to take it one day at a time, and be happy with it. To me it is shameful to express to a child or a teenager that their discomfort or unhappiness with a difficult situation stems from their own inability to cope. What message is being given to girls when they are told that although they are not the creators of the bad situation, they must be the authors of the solution, but the solution must only be to swallow their feelings and smile. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 3 – Don’t Backstab in Front of the Children, Just do it in Your Books?

quotingquiverfull

by Debi Pearl from No Greater Joy - Go, and Sneer No MoreEditor's note: In this final piece from the Sneerer In Chief Debi Pearl she busts out one of her patented stories that sounds like she's invented the story out of thing air. Nice touch adding in the fear to mothers that if they criticize anyone then the sin will be carried on by their children. This is what Debi does, invents something to fear, adds in a made up story to support her claims and then ends it by turning the responsibility and guilt onto the mother.  That's some good Christian love there.. (yes, yes, I know I'm sneering) … [Read more...]
