Quoting Quiverfull: Viewing Porn Makes You a Sexual Victim?

by Claudine Gallacher at Protect Young Minds! - The Secret Life of a Young Girl Abused by PornographyEditor's note: While I agree with the writer that it's a good idea to try and keep children from viewing things like pornography I cannot help but think her tale of the girl whose life was wreck by viewing semi-porn at a young age is fake. Just like those of Debi and Michael Pearl, belabored and false to make a point that could have been arrived at in a more reasonable way. Fear mongering Christianity at its most ridiculous false way. Is not lying a sin in the Bible? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Flirting and Teasing are the Secret to Keeping Marriages Alive?

by Shoshanna Pearl Easling from No Greater Joy magazine - How Do You Keep Marriage Alive?Editor's note: Shoshanna is answering a reader's question in this bit. While none of the things she's saying are necessarily bad advice I find it revealing and interesting that there's nothing on that list involving communication or discussion or being truthful and real with each other. It sounds more like a list to seduce someone else. What do you think? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 5 – Homeschooling? Who Needs Stinkin’ Edumakashun?

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy – Homeschooling High SchoolersEditor's note: Michael finally gets around to answering the original letter writer's question and it's a mere one sentence dealing with how much time should be study time. Great. He never explains what he means by 'work' but I think it's safe to assume that it means work for daddy for free around the farm/business. And ugh, actually a big UGH because mindset is NOT more important that mind content in education. Attitude can only carry you so far, you need to acquire the knowledge of the subject you are studying too. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Public Bathrooms and Evangelical Fears?

by Cates from Mary From Martha - My Thoughts on Unmonitored Transgendered Bathroom AccessEditor's note: This is such a hot button issue right now in the religious world. Like everything they protest and fear monger over it all boils down to sex. They fear that transgendered people are sexual predators instead of just like everyone else. Do they not realize they have been already sharing restrooms with the transgendered and not be molested? This is the same argument that Michelle Duggar made in her transphobic robocalls. What do you think about this issue? … [Read more...]

Vulnerable

by Cindy Foster cross posted from her blog Finding Fundamental We wander through this life together in a semi-darkness in which none of us can distinguish exactly the features of his neighbor. Only from time to time, through some experience that we have of our companion, or through some remark that he passes, he stands for a moment close to us, as though illuminated by a flash of lightning. Then we see him as he really is.- Albert Schweitzer We all need somebody to talk to. It would be good if we talked ... not just pitter-patter, but real talk. We shouldn't be so afraid, because most people really like this contact; that you show you are vulnerable makes them free to be … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 2 – Motherhood is a Battlefield?

by Julie Neils from Ungrind – Warrior MamaEditor's note: More bad battle metaphors and self-congratulatory words. Yes, there's nothing wrong with choosing to be a stay at home mom, but don't deny others that option to choose and don't pretend you being a stay at home mother is some sort of culture warrior stance. It's just a choice, your choice. … [Read more...]
