Go Ahead, Donald Trump Supporters, Defend Your Man

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Life and Times of Bruce GerencserEditor's note: I think this last press conference of our president bears some scrutiny. If he falls apart and leaves office we will be stuck with the scary fundamentalist-quiverfull policies of his vice president - Mike Pence. As long as Pence is a mere heartbeat away from the highest office in the land we will be discussing politics occasionally here. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Men Always Dump Women After Unmarried Sex?

by Unknown at Girl Defined - La La Land: A Conflicting Message for Christian GirlsEditor's note: The emphasis bolding below is mine. I would love to ask these two rather immature young women that run the Girl Defined blog why they think it is that you can sleep with someone you married and they don't immediately lose interest now that they've had sex. Having sex with someone you're not married to does not automatically get you dumped. It's shame-based thinking like that which harms women. I haven't seen this movie so I'm not sure how accurately they are describing the film. … [Read more...]

Parents Spying on Their Adult Children

by Joe Sand cross posted from his blog Incongruous CircumspectionThis post is going to be a bit different from what I have done in the past.  I’m going to write my thoughts, and then open it up to my readers to give their input.  Please don’t hesitate to chime in, even if you disagree with what I have to say.  I want all different perspectives.  Thanks in advance!*****The Chauvinistic Authority Doctrine (CAD) requires a father to monitor and control their children’s every movement and even their every thought.  If their nose hairs so much as twitch out of line, this doctrine states that there is rebellion in the son’s or daughter’s soul.  This also goes for that man’s wife.   Noth … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Sinful Television?

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - Channel 23Editor's note: One of the dumbest attempts at parody and derision attempted by Pearl yet. He's giving television way too much power of him and his family in this piece. There's this wonderful button on the television that he clearly does not understand he has the power to push..... and turn the television off. … [Read more...]
