Quoting Quiverfull: Donald Trump – From Demonic to Angelic?

by Dutch Sheets as quoted by Colin Campbell at Meat For Men - Another Good Article by Dutch Sheets on the ElectionEditor's note: This is almost pure comedy considering less than a year ago, during the primary season both of these guys, Dutch Sheets and Colin Campbell, had taken to their bully pulpits to call Trump all sorts of nasty names and to promote Ted Cruz as the only 'Godly' choice. I wish they would just admit their real objection to Hillary Clinton, or even Jill Stein, is the fact that they are women. The misogyny runs deep. You get the feeling that Satan himself could run on the Republican ticket and these guys would rush to support him. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Who is Allowed to be Judgemental?

by Steven Anderson of Faithful Word Baptist Church - Judge Not!Editor's note: Snipped out the scripture that is the words of Jesus saying we should not judge others - Matthew 7:1. Steven is extrapolating out from those words and twisting it to make it seem like we're all supposed to judge each other all of the time before he goes on to act like only pastors are the ones allowed to judge. Very word salad. … [Read more...]

Shackled Girl: Part 14 – People Give Up, Ask Dog to Comfort Victims

by PropinquaEditor’s note: It’s not a man-bites-dog story. It’s a man-begs-dog-to-take-control story.Prosecuting attorneys in the horrific Ciboro case are just hoping against hope that the judge will let a dog named Anna into the courtroom to comfort two alleged victims of child rape. This is a genuinely great idea—and an admission that the humans in the case are not up to the task.And who would be? One victim is under ten, and the other is 13. Here’s a statement of the obvious: … [Read more...]

The Women Fighting Back

NLQ Founder Vyckie Garrison and NLQ Admin Suzanne Titkemeyer were recently interviewed by Dylan Brethour for Vice.com about their time in the Quiverfull movement: Former member Suzanne explains: "Quiverfull families believe that they have to trust the Lord with their family planning... It's based off the idea that God intends to fill your quiver and blessed is the man whose quiver is full of arrows." Another ex-member, Vyckie Garrison, calls Quiverfull "pro-life rhetoric on steroids". I spoke to both women about why they joined, life as a true believer, and what finally pushed them to leave. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Quiverfull Christians Want to Protect Children’s Rights?

by Trevaris Tutt of The American Vision and Ladies Against Feminism - The Blasphemous Attack on Unalienable Rights of ChildrenEditor's note: Does no one in the entire Quiverfull movement not understand how saying one thing while doing another opposite thing is the very definition of hypocrisy, cognitive dissonance and not something that mentally healthy people do?  For all their talk of the intrinsic rights of children they do have the tendency of do things such as hold onto a child they consider rebellious identity documents, keep young adults at home under educated and under employed and a thousand other small repressions of rights. … [Read more...]
