Quoting Quiverfull: No Flirting But Attract Him With Old Fashioned Way Rules?

quotingquiverfull

by Lisa Hallahan from A Lovely Calling - Being Outgoing With Guys Without Being A FlirtEditor's Note: Some of these ideas aren't bad but seriously, some of this is just really ridiculous like 'Don't laugh loudly' or 'Don't overdo your makeup' yet you are being told to 'Be unique'. How about just simply being yourself. It's not a game or a competition. Like much of fundamentalism this makes what should be simple and natural into something difficult and imbued with odd meaning. … [Read more...]

NLQ Question of the Week: Why Do Fundamentalists Obsess About Modesty?

Questionoftheweek

This is a new series we have started running on Thursdays. Examining some of the questions involving long held Quiverfull theology and life.First we have many different ladies and ministries calling modesty anything from floor length skirts to blending with the crowd in such a way that doesn't draw attention to yourself. Of course, in some Muslim countries modesty is defined by the burqa, but in fundamentalist Christianity modesty is a sliding scale, whatever your pastor decrees. Knee to collar bone covered with no short sleeves? Mennonite caped dresses disguising the shape of the breasts and bottom? Denim skirts and loose tees? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Even Completely Covering Up Can Be Immodest?

quotingquiverfull

by Christy Peterson from A Lovely Calling - ModestyEditor's note: So now extremist Christianity and Quiverfull are seeking to move the goalposts yet again on modesty? It's not enough to cover up almost completely, you now cannot wear anything that makes you stand out or draws attention to you. But isn't that what many of the adherents to the Christian modesty people do, stand out from the crowd as oddly dressed? So confusing. … [Read more...]

News – Race, Homeschooling and Domestic Terrorism

news

This first news isn't precisely Quiverfull or Fundamentalist Christian related but it is awful. A young man by the name of Dylann Roof is a suspect in the shooting deaths of nine people in a prayer meeting in Charleston, South Carolina. This took place at a historic African American church that has been a cornerstone of the community since 1816. Our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone affected by this senseless killing spree.More from CNN - Charleston church shooting: '9 killed because they were black,' official says … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 3 – Christian Economic Abuse is A-Okay With Jesus?

quotingquiverfull

by Biblical Gender Roles from his blog Biblical Gender Roles – Can a Christian husband deny his wife equal access to his income?Editor's note: Now Mr. BGR is trying to claim that how a man handles the family finances has nothing to do with economic abuse when it clearly is economic abuse he's advocating to use as leverage to get sex anytime he wants it. Sounds like the flawed logic a super sexually frustrated teenage boy would come up with. He'd be better off with a prostitute, someone who does have to do as he says or he can withhold payment. … [Read more...]

Random Thoughts

Ellen

by Ellen cross posted from her blog When Church HurtsI am a teacher.  Of 6th graders.  Music.  I often say that I teach so that I can rest up from my summer.  I’ve been on summer break for 10 days and I’m ready for some rest.  Taking care of an acre of yard, flower and vegetable gardens, various repairs that a 112-year-old house needs, and watching my 8-month-old granddaughter a couple of days a week keeps me on the run.  I’m also committed to helping both my son’s with their home projects – flower beds, flooring, new basement steps, refinishing woodwork.  Yeah.  Busy.  So not writing much lately.But here’s what I am thinking: … [Read more...]

Answering “Preparing To Be A Help Meet” – How Do I Wait And Honor The Lord Through My Waiting?

Answering

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 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: Part 2 – Christian Economic Abuse is A-Okay With Jesus?

quotingquiverfull

by Biblical Gender Roles from his blog Biblical Gender Roles – Can a Christian husband deny his wife equal access to his income?Editor's note: According to this guy the pastor is the judge, jury and almost executioner in all matters involving marital disputes. This isn't very fair to either spouse or even the pastor. Most pastors have better things to do than verbally spank people with the Bible for behaving badly. Why does a woman need the pastor's permission to leave someone that is clearly participating in economic abuse against her? … [Read more...]

Your Weekly Duggar Scandal News

19lies

by Suzanne Titkemeyer Oddly enough there are no new legal documents or scandals involving TLC's "19 Kids & Counting" Duggar family coming out of In Touch magazine. Which really surprises me considering the several interviews I saw with the editor handling the Duggar content said things that indicated that what they'd released already was just the tip of the iceberg. … [Read more...]

Jill and Jessa as Quivering Daughters: Hillary McFarland’s Book is Available Again!

Undermuchgrace

by Cindy Kunsman cross posted from her blog Under Much Grace The previous post explains the plight of Second Generation Adults of Patriarchy (SGAs) — those who suffer in the confinement of thought and in the circumstances in life created by Christians who sought to help their families.  The SGA describes adults who grew up in a family that followed high demand religion — a process that has profound effects for those who endure it.  Quivering Daughters by Hillary McFarland seeks to help those who have lived a “Duggar-like lifestyle” but found that it worked to destroy that which it was meant to create.  Rather than a nurturing environment of safety and love, many of its daughters and sons wer … [Read more...]
