The Man as “Prophet, Priest and King” of Wife and Children

kristenrosser

by Kristen Rosser cross posted from her blog Wordgazer's WordsThe teaching that a man is the "prophet, priest and king" of his home isn't new.  I've certainly heard it before.  In fact, the fundamentalist website National Center for Family-Integrated Churches recently reprinted a piece written in the 1600s by a Puritan named William Gurnall.  Here's a sample: … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Oh No, We’re Not Quiverfull?

quotingquiverfull

by Kelly Crawford of Generation Cedar - Why I Agreed to Do a National Interview About Not Being QuiverfullEditor's note: Kelly is trying to back pedal from being Quiverfull even while she will not use birth control and has as many children as possible for the glory of God, which is actually the main definition of the Quiverfull movement, or as some folks in denial call it, the Replenishment Movement. Her immediate jump is to claim again and again that she is not Quiverfull and labels are the problem, not the twisted practices and dangerously bad theology. My Cajun great grandmother used to have a saying for times like these, "You can polish a turd, but it's still a turd." Same thing with … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Looking at Kaitlyn Jenner’s Vanity Fair Photo Warps Childrens Minds?

quotingquiverfull

by Steven L. Anderson  in a recent sermon posted on Youtube and at Raw Story - Arizona Pastor Prays For God To Rip Out Caitlyn Jenner's Heart: "I Hate Him With A Perfect Hatred"Editor's note: If there is one thing we can be thankful for about the Duggarbacle (thank you Mrs. Grizzley for coining this) it's that it's kept many who would normally be frothing at the mouth about transgendered people and gay folks too occupied to chime in on the Bruce to Caitlyn Jenner transition story. That can only be a good thing. I'm not sure how little kids looking at the cover of Vanity Fair are going to have their minds perverted since they are likely to think they are looking at another pretty lady. If … [Read more...]

Is Child Sexual Abuse Rampant in Evangelical Quiverfull Type Christianity?

Molesters

by Suzanne TitkemeyerI am starting to believe that the situation in the Duggar family is far more widespread than everyone seems to think.  Much of the secular world reacted in horror at first. But now evidence is starting to emerge that seems to indicate this is an epidemic, not a isolated incident. Exactly how many connected to the Duggar family will be exposed as having sexually abused a child?Yesterday it was announced that Mike Huckabee's co-writer on two of his books, John Perry, has been accused of child sexual abuse in two separate law suits. Perry's ex wife has alleged that Perry admitted to the molestation in her divorce legal filing.This begs the question of why? Why … [Read more...]

Redeeming Dinah: The Errors of Ron Williams, the IFB, and Gothard’s Esteem of Rabbinical Writing as Holy Writ

Undermuchgrace

by Cindy Kunsman cross posted from Under Much GraceEditor's note: In light of everything that has come out about the Duggar family and Josh Duggar's molestation of his sisters it might be a good thing to revisit what Bill Gothard and others connected with the IFB think about defiled females. This was originally published in 2011.On April 8th, only twelve days ago, ABC's 20/20 aired an episode entitled, Shattered Faith, which focused on the physical and sexual abuse of young women within the Independent Fundamental Baptist affiliated churches (IFB). It also mentioned the powers attributed to the use of the rod of discipline found in Proverbs and the literal translation about the … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Your Body Is Only For Your Future Husband’s Eyes?

quotingquiverfull

by Beecher Proch from Girl Defined - Guy Thoughts: Come on Girl, Keep it Modest (thanks to Bruce Gerencser for posting about Beecher Good catch!)Editor's note: Lots and lots of slut-shaming/women-blaming at the original link even if the author admits that men at 100% responsible for where they put their gaze. Guessing he has no one around to yell 'Nike' for him to look at his shoes when some half-dressed temptress crosses his path. He fails to realize that no matter how much a pretty girl, or any girl, covers up there's always going to be a squad of guys sitting in the pews popping pocket rockets when they go by. It's NORMAL!!! … [Read more...]

Answering “Preparing To Be A Help Meet” – Practical Skills an Evangelist is Looking For in a Wife?

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.

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: Not Being Married Is Perverting God’s Will?

quotingquiverfull

by Vaughn Ohlman from True Love Doesn't Rape - Fruitless CelibacyEditor's note: Correct me if I'm wrong but didn't Paul also say it was better to remain unmarried unless you could not keep yourself from committing sexual sin? That's a far piece from trying to claim that Paul wanted all young women married and having lots of kids. Typical fundamentalist quiverfull cherry picking of scripture. … [Read more...]
