Answering “Preparing To Be A Help Meet” – Questions To Ask Yourself

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: Birth Control Is The Biggest Sin?

quotingquiverfull

by Dale Ahlquist from Crisis Magazine and as quoted by Ladies Against Feminism - G. K. Chesterton: It's Not Gay, and it's Not MarriageEditor's note: Interesting how in the world of Evangelical Quiverfull the Catholics as a group are considered not even Christians or saved. They are despised, looked down upon, treated like dirt, but let one of them state something that lines up with Quiverfull theology and they are quoted as if they were also part of the Evangelical Quiverfull movement instead of despised persons. They hold their nose and quote the Catholic. Quiverfull is filled with dangerous contradictions like this. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Blaming Political Losses on You Not Having Enough Babies?

quotingquiverfull

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - God Does Not Change His Eternal PlansEditor's note: So it sounds like Nancy is blaming the lack of people being Quiverfull for the fact that very few Teaparty types get elected to office. Get busy cranking out those Godly children so the Quiverfull bunch can easily overwhelm the evul liburuls in the voting booths. Remind me again where it says that Christians are supposed to hijack the political system in order to have their way? … [Read more...]
