Quoting Quiverfull: Your House MUST Stay Full?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - A Full HouseEditor's note: Wow, so it's not enough that you stay home, keep your house spotless, perfectly decorated and raise the kids. Now you must pack your house with others and keep them fed and entertained in the name of Jesus. That bar just keeps getting higher and higher, doesn't is? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Eat Dinner at the Table Because God?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Where is Your Family?Editor's note: Nancy has circled back around to one of her favorite straw man arguments - the need of the family to eat every meal, but most especially dinner at the table with each other. She's not worried about if the family can put food on that table or if that family is filled with abuse, just that they eat together. At least this time she's not insisting on fine china, tablecloths and spices. … [Read more...]

Answering ‘Preparing To Be A Help Meet’ – Any Help Finding Time and Privacy For Bible Study?

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: The Pretty-fication of Sports?

by Tim Bayly of Bayly Blog - Premier League Done With "Hard Men"....Editor's note: This is the last time for awhile I'll entertain Pastor Tim Bayly's obsession with homosexuality and ridiculous focus on masculinity. It's repetitive. It's boring. But exposing the sad reality of this pastor's thoughts on what is the definition of manhood is something we need to look at in Quiverfull. Look at the latest flap by Mike Pence and the world reaction to his 'Emo Pure' words on why he can never be alone with women. So much of the world of Fundamentalism, Evangelical and Quiverfull is focused and oriented around sex.  … [Read more...]

Missing Out on Life When Jesus Owns You

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Life and Times of Bruce GerencserYe are bought with a price; be not ye the servants of men. (1 Corinthians 7:23)Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ. (Philippians 3:8) … [Read more...]

Bruce, You Were No Good as a Pastor and You Hurt Our Family

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Life and Times of Bruce GerencserEditor's note: Sharing this because it's healing to see someone who held a position of spiritual authority who is actually open to saying how sorry they are for the damage they caused, either directly or inadvertently. Most of us will never receive that 'Sorry' that we're owed by the one person that was charged with being out shepherd and with our care. Kudos to you. Bruce!Today, a man who says his name is Andrew Beltz, left a troubling comment on the Why I Hate Jesus post. Beltz wrote: … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Treat Women Like Guns?

by Sundance at I Want You To Be Andrew Breitbart - Yes Hillary, and Democrats, Our Children Are Watching....Editor's note: Found this when I was taking a look at disgusting semi-perv Minthegap's various sites. Remember Min, the man that had all those revealing photos of teenage girls at his site IsThisModest.com? No idea if this guy he's quoted is QF or not, but this is exactly the type of thinking rife in the Christian Patriarch Movement. Worth a reminder of what they want of women. He's riffing on a sign carried by one of the women at the Woman's March that calls for women to have as many rights as guns. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Act Kind to Homosexuals But Convert Them!?

by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife - Trying to Justify Christians Watching 'This Is Us"Editor's note: This week's theme for Lori seems to be sinful movies and television shows. She apparently approves of watching shows with dramatic depictions of murders and other 'sins' but not watching a show named 'This Is Us'. I admit I haven't seen this show so I cannot make a judgment call on if it's sinful or not, but for goodness sakes it's just a fictional television show. If you don't like it, don't watch it and don't beat up on your readers that said they liked it. No one is forcing you to participate in watching the show! Personal tastes vary wildly. I had to share this little bit by … [Read more...]
