Not Quoting Quiverfull: Why Don’t Christians Protest Divorce Like They Do Gay Marriage?

Notquoting

by Tim Fall from his blog Tim's Blog - Just One Train Wreck After Another - Marriage Equality and No Fault Divorce - how do you rank them?Editor's note: This is actually a good question to ask of those out protesting or threatening to set themselves on fire over marriage equality. Jesus condemned divorce but they don't seem to care about that. Where are the lines? Why are so many so hypocritical on other issues? Why can't they see that treated homosexuals the same way you treat a divorced person is the right thing to do? … [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...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Game of Porn – “Game of Thrones” Is Mind-Rotting Pornography?

quotingquiverfull

 by Matt Walsh from The Matt Walsh Blog (linked through Do No Link: No need to give him any clicks towards the overwhelming flood of advertising on his site - beware the zillion popups! ) - Christians, Now Is Probably A Good Time To Stop Watching "Game of Thrones"Editor's note: Matt tries to make the case that "Game of Thrones"  watching is the same as watching pornography, that is is pornography. Clearly he has the same problems keeping away from porn as Michael Pearl seems to have in this week's article by Bruce Gerencser "Are You A Porno Freak?" What gives Walsh or Pearl the authority to determine for anyone else what we should or should not do? Did anyone really think … [Read more...]

Part 2 – A Crash Course in Sex, Gender and Sexual Orientation

WhenCowsKidsCollide

by Mel cross posted from her blog When Cows and Kids CollideAlrighty.  Let's start with a quick refresher course from the previous post:Physical sex refers to which secondary sex characteristics a person has.  The binary nature of the system creates problems when someone has a reproductive system that is not fully female or male. Genetic sex refers to the compliment of sex chromosomes (X and Y) present in a person.  Usually, a someone with a female physical sex is XX and a male physical sex is XY - but this cannot be determined without medical testing AND is not always true. Our sexual characteristics are determined by hormonal cascades during early embryonic development.  These … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Poor Christians Being Persecuted For Intolerance?

quotingquiverfull

by R.C. Sproul Jr as quoted by Ladies Against Feminism - Surrendering the Culture WarEditor's note: As best as I can tell Sproul and the ladies of LAF are claiming that they are being persecuted because of gay marriage becoming accepted by many Americans. Sproul goes on to say on his site that they now have to be willing to 'love' their neighbors and martyr themselves for truth.  That's some Olympic-style martyrbating mixed with a call for hatred disguised as love there buddy. … [Read more...]

Part 1 – A Crash Course in Sex, Gender and Gender Identity

WhenCowsKidsCollide

by Mel cross posted from her blog When Cows and Kids CollideEditor's note: While this has little to do with evangelicals or quiverfulls it does speak to the misinformation and downright lies that are taught about sexuality in the quiverfull movement and much of Christianity. Knowledge is power, so the next time a Zsuzanna Anderson type starts ranting about alternate sexuality in a hateful way you'll have the knowledge to know they don't know what the heck they are really talking about.The recent furor (in some circles) over Chris Jenner has clarified for me some of the main misconceptions about transgender identity. … [Read more...]

News: Christians Upset Over White Republican Christian Bruce Jenner Coming Out As Transgendered

news

This doesn't exactly fit in the Quoting Quiverful or News section but after some of what I've read on "Christian" sites/blogs, including several here on Patheos, it's obvious that many folks Quiverfull, Evangelical, Religious or Atheist are hotly debating gold medal Olympian Bruce Jenner's Friday night televised interview. Diane Sawyer interviewed Bruce for two hours in which he explained his gender identity journey along with snippets from the medical community and others who identify as transgendered in  a way that came across as enlightening and respectful, not at all what I expected. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Ladies Against Feminism Loves Dolce & Gabbana Homophobic Parenting Views??

quotingquiverfull

by Catholic News Agency on a recent article in Italian magazine Panorama  interviewing designers Dolce & Gabbana as quoted by Ladies Against Feminism - Homosexual Designers Back Traditional MarriageEditor's note: Part one of LAF using the words of Dolce & Gabbana to try and further their 'No Gay Parents' and 'No Gay Marriage' agenda. I guess we fear that which we do not understand. Nice shaming/blaming of D & G by the ladies of LAF. Second part of this tomorrow morning dealing with who exactly should be, in their opinion, using reproductive technologies. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: God Hates R Rated Movies?

quotingquiverfull

by Kristen Clark from Girl Defined - Why Watching People Make Out Should Be AwkwardEditor's note: One thing you can count on from the Quiverfull/CPM/Fundamentalist movement is that they will keep moving the bar, changing the rules, until everything except reading your Bible and praying is 'sinful' This piece basically says if you are not uncomfortable watching a movie scene of people deeply kissing, much less having sex, then there is something 'wrong' with you in your spiritual life. Yeah, keep moving that line and telling yourself you are hole-y, err, holy. It really is all about sex in that world. Seems like the author is coming very close to calling passionate kissing pornography. … [Read more...]
