Quoting Quiverfull: If You Aren’t Perfectly Obedient Your Kids Will Rebel?

quotingquiverfull

by Anonymous in No Greater Joy Magazine - To Obey is BetterEditor's note: This is pretty sad and self shaming. The author wanted her own study Bible early on in her marriage and her husband refused to buy it for her. She's blaming her reactions to that and accompanying attitudes as the thing that has caused her children to start rebelling. Quiverfull always finds a way to twist normal emotions and project them in a very bad way that layers a mother with unearned guilt. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 1 – Sodom and Gomorrah Are In Your Families?

quotingquiverfull

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy Magazine - This Is the Last Righteous GenerationEditor's note: So it looks like the Pearls completely bypassed a magazine for May/June and plunged straight into June/July. Interesting. Wondering what happened? On to the article, apparently Michael Pearl has gone beyond the standard Quiverfull Evangelical fear-mongering to straight up blaming and shaming. It sounds like he is whining...err.. winding up to blame the internet. And yes, there's another sketchy letter asking for advice in Part 2. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Look ‘Hot’ But Not Too ‘Hot’?

quotingquiverfull

by Bethany Baird at Lies Young Women Believe - When Looking Hot Gets You More AttentionEditor's note: So many times we've discussed the dangerous implications of the whole modesty culture that surrounds Quiverfull and Evangelical Christianity, the shaming and blaming that's done in the name of modesty, how it all plays into the purity culture/rape culture dichotomy and how destroying it can be to your inner self. Now they've come up with a different angle, the hot selfie, that thing many do on social media, they're making it all about your relationship with Jesus. Gah, just wear what you feel comfortable and confident wearing and leave poor Jesus out of it. Life is a much happier place … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Are “Sexual Immorality” and “Lust” the Same Thing?

quotingquiverfull

by Kristen Clark from Girl Defined - Lust: A Christian Girl's ProblemEditor's note: This entire piece makes me sad because it seems that Evangelical Quiverfull Christianity has made the idea of any thought even slightly romantic or erotic into something sinful and dirty. What an insanely impossible standard that goes against everything in our own biology. Kristen quotes 1 Thessalonians 4:3 to justify never having any thoughts related to the opposite sex "that you abstain from sexual immorality; that each one of you know how to control his own body in holiness and honor.” yet doesn't seem to realize that 'Sexual immorality' and 'Lust' may not even be the same thing in this passage. What d … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: How Not Voting Is Actually Voting?

quotingquiverfull

by Zsuzsanna Anderson from Are They All Yours?!?! - Okay, I VotedEditor's note: This is Pastor Steven L. Anderson's wife's response to another piece quoted here where she explained all the reasons why women should not vote. She got push back on that issue from her own group of supporters. Here's how she claims she votes. Lots of shaming and blaming as usual. Emphasis below mine on something she claims others do when it's obvious she too wastes time online. I would check to see if her pants were on fire, but she thinks wearing pants is a sin. Is her skirt scorched and smoking yet? … [Read more...]

NLQ Question of the Week: Why Do So Many Believe Natural Disasters Are ‘God’s Judgment’?

Questionoftheweek

This is a new series we’re going to start running on Thursdays. Examining some of the questions involving long held Quiverfull theology and life.It seems lately that every time you look at the news there's some fundamentalist or evangelical leader either blaming a natural disaster on God's wrath or claiming that doing x,y, or z will be bringing God's wrath, judgment and punishment down on the heads of various people. Remember how 9/11 was blamed on abortion and gays? Last week Pat Robertson said that Americans mocking fundamentalists would bring down God's wrath and punishment on the nation. He also said this at Right Wing Watch: … [Read more...]
