CTBHHM: Praying Women and “Spiritual Masturbation”

created

by Libby Anne cross posted from her blog Love, Joy, FeminismCreated To Be His Help Meet, pp. 180—182So, Debi gets mail. Or rather, Michael does, but whatever, it made into Debi’s book. Dear Mr. Pearl,I am a busy mother whose children go to a Christian school. I am realizing that without another close female in my life who could share house duties, it is harder on me than it should be. Do you by any chance have a husband? Because believe it or not, they can help out with things like housework and childcare. I know, right? It’s crazy! … [Read more...]

Cults and Cult Behaviors

cult

by Suzanne TitkemeyerYesterday over on Reddit someone submitted the question: [Serious] Former cult members or friends of cult members of Reddit, what is you creepiest, scariest or most disturbing story and is that what made you leave? ...and the answers poured in. There was even talk of some cult activity in the Islamic realm, Jehovah Witness', Moonies,Hari Krishna, Catholicism  and Scientology along with a great deal of scary postings about fundamental evangelical Christianity.

watermelonmakeout

Celebitchy is speculating that Jill Duggar Dillard and her new husband Derick might just be vying for their own reality show. From Celebitchy - Are Jill Duggar and her new husband, Derick Dillard, gunning for their own reality show?  Now that they’re back home, Jill has Instagrammed photos with Derick in which they’re kissing, doing couples stuff like making dinner and going to breakfast, and one where she’s cutting Derick’s hair. They’re somewhat personal photos, is what I’m saying. A lot of people share things like that on their Facebook, but this is on an open Instagram page. These people are somewhat famous and Jill knows that everything she posts will be picked up by the media. … [Read more...]

This is What Happens When a “Good Christian” Replies….

goodchristian

by Suzanne Titkemeyer Most of you have been following SJ Reidhead's series Christian Reconstruction, ATI, Abuse and Submission: Modesty and Lust, here and at her blog The Pink Flamingo , that sprang out of NLQ's posting in Quoting Quiverfull of the take of modesty of one Stephanus Blignaut. It's been an interesting read because it's pretty clear that SJ is better educated and knowledgeable on the history of fashion and modesty than Mr. Blignaut. Stephanus Blignaut has no historical basis for his thoughts, only---you guessed it---The Bible!! … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Rape is ‘Natural’?

rape

by Doug Wilson from his blog  originally. Since Doug Wilson removed the original blog posting because of blow back by others this is from Sierra's blog - The Phoenix and the Olive Branch It is important to revisit what it is conservative evangelicals actually believe, even if they've publicly backpedaled from it. Because we have forgotten the biblical concepts of true authority and submission, or more accurately, have rebelled against them, we have created a climate in which caricatures of authority and submission intrude upon our lives with violence. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: So TV is a Sin Now? Even JSTAR?

by Ronald E. Williams as posted on Stephaus Blignaut's website Go Tell My People - The Christian's PET SIN Christians do not indulge in Hollywood cesspool movies, rock music, drug parties, wife-swapping, sodomite steam baths, mixed swimming, nude shows, prostitutes, etc. They shun these wicked pleasures of the world, nor would they allow their children to participate in this wickedness. Yet in the privacy of Christian homes all of the above evil practices are on TV in full color, extolled; held up as proper and acceptable behavior and encouraged. … [Read more...]

The Destiny of a Virtuous Daughter: Part 6

starfury

by StarfuryMy depression grew over the months we were without contact. I had begun to build much of my life around Anthony, and my/our intent to marry. I assumed what I was doing was how it was supposed to  be--I didn’t have anything to compare it to, but, if I was supposed to marry my first beau? I dropped out of college and transferred to a state school in another state, where some friends lived. I made up half-hearted excuses to any who asked, and did my best to throw myself into my studies, despite the lack of challenge they presented. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Who Decides What is ‘Normal’?

define-normal1

by the Duggar girls in their book "Growing Up Duggar" page 114 This doesn't mean we're to ignore the fact that God has created us to have a natural physical desire toward men. When these feelings arise, we thank God of making us 'normal.' Withing a godly marriage, this kind of desire can be a wonderful blessing that bonds the husband and wife together in the way God intended. But during our single years, this physical attract, if not carefully controlled, can also be one of the biggest sources of temptation and struggles. What is the definition of 'normal' in that paragraph? Is it coded language for 'not a lesbian'? … [Read more...]

Patriarchal Ideas in Modern Culture: Please Your Man or Lose Him!

susan patton

No, for a change this isn't Debi Pearl advising you to bend over backwards, sideways and upside down to keep pleasing your man. This came from Fox News a few days ago. Think Progress did a story on the "Princeton Mom" Susan Patton and her recent appearance on Fox News - Husband Appreciation - Sage Advice For Wives.  “If you are in your mid-30s or older the idea that you’re going to find yourself another husband, almost impossible,” Patton predicted. “And if you don’t believe me ask your maiden aunt, she will tell you when she’s done feeding the cats.” … [Read more...]
