Quoting Quiverfull: Homosexual Agenda to End Marriage by Gaining the Right to Marry?

quotingquiverfull

by Micah Clark from Illinois Family Institute as quoting by Ladies Against Feminism - Homosexual Battle Plans Revealed: Destroy MarriageEditor's note: It's amazing how LAF takes statements completely out of context and creates something quite different than what the quoted person actually said. They have turned things around to always push their own agenda of no rights for women. Is not that a form of lying, which is forbidden by the Ten Commandments? The original source for the quotation is an ABC radio program from Australia. Context is important. … [Read more...]

Awkwardness

by Mari cross posted from her blog Mari's MusesI went to Bible Study tonight. We were supposed to get into groups and answer this question:As a child, how did you adapt in order to be accepted or in order to fit in?I didn’t answer the question.I fully intended to go home and think about it, but my friend’s 3-year old threw herself at me the second I suggested going home, so I held her, hugged her, and prayed that she would never, ever have the same answer to that question that I have. … [Read more...]

Cinderella; a Beautiful Girlhood

Image by Nora Woodhouse used with permission

by Nora Woodhouse cross posted from her blog A Heart Like MineI started my excursion into fairy tale princesses, and romance stories with a post about why those things still resonated with me. I want to continue with other aspects of those stories that are relevant and real for me as a woman in our culture but specifically the culture I was brought up in with its very heavy influences of patriarchy, gender ideals, and fundamentalist beliefs. Cinderella captures all the classic elements of a fairy tale princess romance and because there is context and parallels between it and my own story I will be using it for illustration and discussion. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Does A Foreign Country’s President Have The ‘Right’ To Deny Religious Foreign Adoptions That Take Advantage Of That Region’s Poverty?

quotingquiverfull

by Rachel Pehl from her blog Break My Heart For What Breaks Yours - D.R.C. (Democratic Republic of Congo) Adoptions - We Need A MiracleEditor's note: A few days ago Astrin Ymris put a link in the comments here concerning a certain Fundigelical adoption blogger who refused to take on any debt for one of those borderline squishy foreign adoptions. Rachel Pehl will not take on debt because it's not 'Biblical' but is willing to beg for the funds to adopt, which should be a huge red flag to any legitimate adoption agency that perhaps finances are not adequate in that family to justify adoption. Here's that bit: … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Seductive Women Are As Bad As Male Rapists?

quotingquiverfull

Good catch by Calvinist Janeway! She posted this on her blog Explorations in Egalitarianism - John Piper, Rape, Seduction, and Sin Leveling The quote is something that was tweeted by John Piper of  Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood.Editor's note: Piper deleted this shortly after posting it on Twitter. He must have gotten some well-deserved fundigelical push back over this idea that somehow female seducers and male rapists are the same thing. A seducer can be resisted, but a rapist takes violently what he wants. … [Read more...]

Peace in Life and Death

kaleesha

by Kaleesha Williams cross posted from her blog The Lost (And Found) Mind of Kaleesha WilliamsToday Denny laid to rest one of his closest friends, his little dog, Talula, who has been with him since he rescued her as a pup about fifteen years ago.He posted a picture to Facebook, of Talula on her last day, and the condolences began to roll in. Among them, however, there was a comment from a local chap with whom we are nominally acquainted, a Christian who never comments unless he sees an opportunity to witness to us. Why we have remained friends online is a mystery even to me. Maybe I’m reluctant to shut anyone out. He’s not been unkind, just pushy about his faith. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: No Anger Towards God?

quotingquiverfull

by Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies - Are You Angry At God? Let Him Quiet Your SpiritEditor's note: Obviously in Nancy's world God is some sort of fragile being that cannot handle any push back so you must control your emotions and never get angry at God. Does anyone really want to follow a God so petty and weak that you cannot get angry at Him occasionally?  … [Read more...]

Part 1 – Is It Possible To Be A Sex-Positive Christian?

Image from Samantha Field - Defeating The Dragons

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating The Dragons If you’ve spent any time in feminist circles, you’ve probably bumped into the termsex-positive. It gets thrown around a bit, and one thing I’ve noticed is that it can occasionally be difficult to nail down what the writer/speaker means when they use it, so I’m going to offer a definition for what I mean when I use it. … [Read more...]
