Quoting Quiverfull: Part 1 – Made Up Assumptions About Families?

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy magazine - This I Have ObservedEditor's note: This piece is very word-salady and meanders along without much of a cohesive thought other than Michael saying he has seen a zillion families and the non-Christian ones are usually an epic fail. For some reason when the Pearls published their July/August issue of their magazine they aren't promoting it on the front page of the website. Very curious. … [Read more...]

Anti-Gay Preacher Barred From Fundraising Now Wants Death Penalty For Adultery

by Vyckie Garrison NLQ Founder at Raw Story When someone says that homosexuality is worthy of death according to the Bible, people inevitably will bring up other sins that were also punishable by death in the Old Testament. They think they are somehow catching us in hypocrisy, but the truth is, Bible believing Christians DO agree with those other Old Testament penalties as well. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Submit to Your Husband Even if He Orders You to Sin?

by Larry Solomon from Biblical Gender Roles - Does a Christian Wife Have to Submit to a Sinful Request From Her Husband?Editor's note: All the emphasis in the bits below come from Larry himself. This type of hair splitting in the world of weak immature Christian Patriarchy is particularly chafing as the Bible orders you to avoid sin, yet Larry is claiming if you are to sin because your husband orders it then you have to do it. So which is it? Avoid sin or do what the petty dictator claims because penis? … [Read more...]

Answering ‘Preparing To Be A Help Meet’ – Getting Over a Broken Heart?

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 … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Oppressive Patriarchy or Good Submission?

by Larry Solomon from Biblical Gender Roles - Are Women Who Want to Submit to and Serve Their Husbands Mentally Ill? (not directly linking to this post)Editor's note: Normal love makes you want to submit to your man? Somehow I don't think that's at all how it works. But Larry doesn't seem to care, he just wants to be worshiped, him and his penis, and he's not able to achieve high enough status on his own merits, he has to put down women to raise himself. … [Read more...]

Shackled Girl: Part 9 – Open Questions and Remaining Concerns

by PropinquaEditor’s note: The three children in the Ciboro house were isolated from family and neighbors. Now they are in foster care, hidden by confidentiality laws. They need privacy and time to heal, and no decent person wants to pry. On the other hand, public attention facilitated the 13-year-old girl’s escape, and public attention is probably needed to protect her and bring about justice. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Let’s Kill All the Adulterers?

by Steven Anderson of Faithful Word Baptist Church - The Death Penalty For AdulteryEditor's note: Sometimes I get the feeling that Anderson purposely pulls the most controversial topics out of his rear end just to start people fighting with him. He seems to do this to fuel his massive Christian Martyr complex. This is one of those times. Yes, adultery is wrong, but death penalty wrong is a huge stretch! … [Read more...]

Created To Need A Help Meet: Part 7 Obey Indeed? (4 Different Types of Submission)

by Aletha cross posted from her blog Yllom MormonEditor's note: This is the last bit that Aletha has written from the book and may be the last bit published here. She's done a masterful job with the odious material in the book. Thank you Aletha for braving this book for us!The last section I covered was Michael explaining the difference between obey and submit. Obeying is an action; he uses the example of horses obeying. Submission is obedience with a full heart. Basically being happy about obeying.  Today is more on that subject, in case there are any questions. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Gays Are Coming to Rape Our Mothers?

by Steven Anderson of Faithful Word Baptist Church - A Time to HateEditor's note: You'd think after Paypal, Apple Pay and most other online payment systems have decided to not allow Anderson to use their services because of his hateful statements that he'd maybe either examine his words - a little self reflection is good for everyone - or he'd lay low till people started to forget he was spewing hate speech against a group protected by federal law. Nope, not Steven, he's claiming that those he was demonizing are martyring him and his pals. That's some true Christian love he's demonstrating there... … [Read more...]

Bonus Quoting Quiverfull: Saeed Abedini Hates Hillary Clinton and Women?

by Saeed Abedini on Facebook today:Editor's note: First of all, NLQ is neither for or against Hillary Clinton as a presidential candidate. What we are sharing this for is the complete misogynistic views of known wife abuser former prisoner Saeed Abedini. This is a guy that runs around pretending to be some sort of Uber-Pastor all the while he was abusing his wife. Now he's doubling down on hateful anti-women rhetoric? Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. So many of these 'Good Patriarchs' really hate women, while hiding behind the Bible. This is a guy that ordered his wife to support him, not say a word about the abuse yet refused to go to any type of marriage counseling … [Read more...]
