Quoting Quiverfull: God Is At Your Table?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Whose Table?Editor's note: Another place that Nancy is claiming that you have to be perfect at because God is there in your home. Your table. So how does that work when your table is piled high with homeschooling supplies or is the catch all for the things you don't have time to handle? Or perhaps you never eat at your pristine table? It seems that more and more Nancy is grappling for more ways to keep women fearful and anxious over every aspect of their home or lives not being 'good enough' She really loves to come up with strange notions to fear-monger with. … [Read more...]

Answering ‘Preparing To Be A Help Meet’ – How To Handle A Command Man?

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: Having A Job Is Restful?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Don't Give Up Halfway Through!Editor's note: Has Nancy ever worked outside of the home? Even before she had kids? If she had she would have realized just how wrong she is about work. It's not 'restful', unless perhaps you work in a sleep lab as a guinea pig. People usually do not get jobs to get the heck away from their children. It's usually because they need the extra money coming in, not for some ridiculous reason that Nancy likes to invent. What silly ideas she has. … [Read more...]

News: Dillards Refunding Donations

According to the website Raw Story Jill Duggar Dillard and her husband Derick Dillard have come up with a response to the hordes of angry people who feel ripped off. Many fans of the Duggar family from TLC's '19 Kids & Counting' television show gave charitable donations for the Dillard family to be missionaries in Central America, only to discover that the Dillards were likely using the funds to vacation and fly back and forth to Arkansas for family visits instead of helping the poor of El Salvador. … [Read more...]

News: How Many More Dead Homeschooled Children Will It Take?

by Suzanne TitkemeyerI've avoided this story, avoided reading it, avoided posting it here at NLQ. Why? Because of the many disturbing implications of this incident, because I know too many churches too well that this could have happened in from my former faith life.  It makes me sick thinking about this boy's last hours.This week the New Hartford Word of Life Christian Church beat a member to death. Beat him to death in an attempt to get this nineteen year old young man who expressed a wish to leave the church into confessing some imaginary litany of sins. They just about killed his 17 year old brother too. But Christopher Leonard was lucky. He's alive and currently in serious … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: So the Problem When Looking is Really Judgmentalism Not Lust?

Found on Ladies Against Feminism but written by Tim Challies from Challies.com - It's Not Just a Guy ThingEditor's note: The part quoted by Ladies Against Feminism is very odd, just the beginning of the post, without going into the scary-blame-y meat of this thing. The first part was the standard yapping about men looking at women with lust.  According to Tim Challies it is not so much an issue of men ogling random women, but women also looking at folks and judging them. Way to take a Christians-mostly problem in the church and make it all about blaming women. Most people not in the church do not care if others are looking at them and secretly lusting. Very creepy. … [Read more...]

Created To Need A Help Meet: Part 7 Mr Steady (Give Your Ornamental Wife A Purpose)

by Aletha cross posted from her blog Yllom Mormonpp 98-99This section is interesting to me. In fact, I think it is one of the more intriguing sections I've read. Mostly because Michael comes dangerously close to saying women have needs and desires of their own. Yeah, I was shocked, too. Read on! … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: What The Duggars and Dillards Are Really Doing in Central America Besides Living On Donors Money?

Found on the Facebook group Duggar Family News: Life is not all pickles and hairspray by Carissa from the blog Windsong Imagery - God's Work in El SalvadorEditor's note: All that speculation over what the Duggars and the Dillards do on their SOS Mission trips beyond hand out Dollar Tree trinkets to the locals has been answered by someone that has been on a few trips with them. Are they helping build homes, or feeding people, or doing anything of any practical use? Nope, it's straight up Catholic-bashing and trying to convert Catholics to be evangelicals. All those folks that gave generously to Jill and Derick Dillard didn't just pay for their travel back and forth and back and forth … [Read more...]

Follow Up To My Post On Anna Duggar

by Lana Hope cross posted from her blog Wide Open Ground(This a follow up to Stop 'Knowing' What Anna Duggar Will Do)I’m just a small blog, so don’t normally get that much disagreements voiced to my posts.But my post on Anna Duggar, not surprisingly, created a lot of controversial (for the controversial comments, check the cross-post comment sections on Homeschoolers Anonymous and No Longer Quivering).  In that post, I argued that we should leave Anna Duggar alone, and I maintained that we should stop calling her brainwashed. I asserted that she is a victim, and contended that we need to let her own her story. Several readers disagreed with me, arguing that she is famous, has hurt … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Women Whine Too Much?

by Tim Bayly from The Bayly Blog - Evangelical Feminists: Wanna talk about me?Editor's note: Tim Bayly is still having his ongoing hissy fit over the idea that Christian women like Patheos writers Rachel Miller and Valerie Hobbs of Jesus Creed talk about toxic patriarchy, like that practiced by Doug Wilson and John Piper. This time he is reacting with predictable and boring hostility to a report by women researchers at Gordon College on the gender disparity in the church. This is at least his third, maybe fourth piece about evil unsilent women where he's stomping his feet and behaving like a toddler instead of what he claims to be, a man. What is it about these Good Christian (tm) Men … [Read more...]
