Quoting Quiverfull: Don’t Blame Your Lazy Husband For Not Changing?

by Debi Pearl from No Greater Joy - Rising to the ChallengeEditor's note: Debi loves to call women lazy and berated them, but apparently men get a pass for being lazy. It all boils down to the wife being fully submissive. Yeah, like that's going to work. So what can a woman do if her husband wants her to send their children to public school and go to college? She can become a Proverbs 31 wife. She can study, learn, grow, and become successful. She can win his confidence in her as a teacher of his children. In all my 40 years of ministering to families, I have never seen a husband (no matter how stiff-necked and against homeschooling) who didn’t respond with thanksgiving when his wife b … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Changing Nations By Changing Diapers?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - The Rod of GodEditor's note: The Rod of God sounds like it belongs more on Colin Campbell's porn-sounding named column "Meat For Men" than something for ladies.

Answering “Preparing To Be A Help Meet” – What Do I Do Now?

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.

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: Good Christian Family Living and Singing Gives You Oxytocin?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Living Stress Free in a Stressful WorldEditor's note: Clearly Nancy needs a refresher course in the sciences and basic biology based upon the claims she's making in this posting. The only thing I've heard of that puts you in this much of a 'blissful stressless' state involves a handful of Klonopin washed down with a bottle of tequila, at least seems to work for temporarily. Or so some people say.  See how many logic fails and lame claims Nancy makes in this piece. Why she doesn't suggest real proven destressors, like yoga, meditation and indulging in a hobby you love, like reading or running or gardening or gaming is puzzling. She does mention … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Talking Too Much & Homeless Shaming?

by Steven L. Anderson from Faithful Word Baptist Church - Vain JanglingEditor's note: Another jaw drop point from this awful sermon about not talking too much and letting only the learned pastor speak from the pulpit. He manages to be scornful of the homeless, junk food and his own followers at the same time. This is also the part that had the most 'Amens' type sermon interruptions coming right from the crowd. He doesn't seem to take into consideration that a homeless man isn't going to have a place to fix cheap and nutritious food, a way to get to a super market to buy the ingredients or any of the other factors that go into healthy eating. This man is doing sheer survival eating and … [Read more...]
