Quoting Quiverfull: Alecia Pennington Having No Official ID Is ‘True Freedom’?

quotingquiverfull

by David at Nooganomics.com - Homeschooling grad finds liberty stifling; she's 19, says she can't get legal IDEditor's note: This man seems to think that being completely unidentifiable in a legal sense is something to be valued? Original posting has lots of praise for the Pennington parents and digs at the federal government and society in general. Think this guy is hiding in a spider hole near Chattanooga, Tennessee stockpiling weapons and dehydrated foodstuffs? Another self-appointed patriarch trying to tell a girl how to live. How can anyone possibly believe that a lack of a legal birth certificate is an advantage? … [Read more...]

One Million Moms Outraged Over Women Not Wearing Underwear

From Cottonelle's Facebook page

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Life and Times of Bruce GerencserEditor's note: Posting this because it seems to be representative of the silly things that really do not matter in the long run that the world of Quiverfull Evangelical Fundamentalist Christianity seems to be most concerned with. There are real pressing problems and injustice happening in this world that demand outrage, attention and change. Why be outraged over silly things like not wearing underwear. They cannot be bothered to focus on real problem. Why is that? Humor and snark ahead … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 4 – Your Husband’s Obsessions?

quotingquiverfull

by Debi Pearl from No Greater Joy - ObsessionsEditor's note: So one of  Nancy's early solutions is to try and change a man? Baawwhahahahahah! There is nothing more frustrating and useless than trying to change someone else. You can only change yourself. At least she realized that wasn't going to work with Michael pretty quickly. But her message of suck it up, be joyful and find something to do while he's obsessing (or just merely practicing his hobby) is not any healthier. … [Read more...]

Screen cap from Facebook

by Living Liminal cross posted from her blog Living LiminalI came across this Facebook post from Kris Vallotton last week. As of today, it has received over 1,500 responses. And as far as I can see scrolling down the first few hundred, they are all messages of thanks and applause.But I have spent the last week struggling with it - feeling like I must inhabit an alternate universe. Because when I read this post, I didn't feel like applauding.I was distressed! … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 3 – Your Husband’s Obsessions?

quotingquiverfull

by Debi Pearl from No Greater Joy - ObsessionsEditor's note: It seems what Debi is describing here is more 'hobby' than 'obsession' for most men who aren't Michael Pearl. The difference she doesn't understand it level of emotional commitment. Most guys I've known that like to hunt don't plan all week and spent a good portion of the family money on hunting before abandoning the family to hunt. Takes a special kind of indifference to others needs combined with caring only for your own desires to become as obsessed over a normally harmless hobby to be labeled 'Obsessional' … [Read more...]

The Curse of Being Bound to an Image

Image NLQ original

by Sarah Henderson cross posted from her blog Feminist in Spite of ThemIt's been over nine years since I left my parents and over time my perception of how much progress I've made in my life has changed many times, fluctuating between sometimes thinking I am doing a terrible job at being an adult and sometimes thinking I am doing well. Through some enlightening conversations I've had recently with my friend James, who is in my cohort of ex-fundamentalists, I've come to realize that in spite of everything that I re-evaluated and realized since I left, I missed a very important thing. (I am not going to say that I missed one very important thing because I am sure that there are other t … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 2 – Your Husbands Obsessions?

quotingquiverfull

by Debi Pearl from No Greater Joy - Obsessions Editor's note: We'll be sharing this article in bits and pieces over the next few days since so much of it is so sheerly awful. It's one of the clearest examples of an over bearing husband's crummy behavior in the world of Christian Patriarch Movement and is rife with abusive behavior and explaining/minimizing that same behavior. Today Debi explains about Michael's hunting of those wascally wabbits and what happened in the aftermath of his hunting she had to deal with. … [Read more...]
