Quoting Quiverfull: Even a Medical Career is Selfish For a Woman?

by Larry Solomon from Biblical Gender Roles - The Sacrifice God Calls Christian Wives toEditor's note: Larry is at it again, this time influencing a fourth year medical student to give up her studies and possible livelihood to stay home and have babies. He calls a woman's medical career selfish. Keep in mind that this young lady is not even married yet, but at this late date in her education and training she's being influenced to toss it all away by the ignorant words of a online Red Pill Christian weak patriarch she does not even know. This is the damage that people like Larry, Nancy Campbell, Lori Alexander, et al do. … [Read more...]

Banning Movies – Parody That Sounds Too Real

There's of a lot of films out right now that are upsetting the Evangelical Quiverfull world right now, from 'The Shack' with it's depiction of God as a LGBQT black woman to 'Beauty and the Beast' and it's brief depiction of a gay Lefou. They are ignoring the disturbing themes of kidnapping and holding someone against their will, Stockholm Syndrome and the vaguely bestiality theme of a girl in love with a buffalo-bear-pig being.Right now even Duggar son-in-law Ben Seewald is ranting in long videos about the evils of 'The Shack'. This is sort of a parody of that.The Try Guys of Buzz Feed, whom I usually love and adore, decided to poke fun at the religious right's banning of all sorts … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Satan Tricks Women Using Their Emotions?

by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife - Satan Preys on the Vulnerability of WomenEditor's note: So if I'm reading Lori's fan girl's letter here she's saying that women getting together to pray or study the Bible are just gossiping and ignoring their mandate to be home silently raising their children? Why is it always all or nothing? Lori talks in her book about getting together in groups to teach other women but this makes it sound like for everyone else but Lori it is a sin. Isolationism at it's finest. Yes, yes, it's much easier to control and manipulate isolated people. … [Read more...]

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.

The Superbowl, Wooden Dildos and Peaceful Resistance

by Suzanne TitkemeyerFor the last few weeks I've been out of the country, on a trip to Costa Rica to find a place to retire. I've missed a lot of the political commentary and the actions of our new president. Which was a good thing it turns out. The constant drum beat of news we experience here in the United States has been making me anxious. There was none of that during my weeks in this tropical nation, I slept peacefully and the anxiety dreams I've been plagued with for months disappeared. My suddenly high blood pressure normalized. I know I'm not the only one feeling like this right now either.What little that did filter through to me in Central America was largely horrifying. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Christianity Ended Effeminate Men?

by Tim Bayly from the Bayly Blog - On the Occasion of Michael Ferris Leaving HSLDAEditor's note: This pile of nonsensical word salad without dressing has too many bizarre parts to just pick one. I think that Bayly might be grappling around trying to say that the country is going to h-e-double hockey sticks in that decorated hand basket. Of course, I could be wrong, but the leap of Ferris from HSLDA to another organization is his proof. Snipped off the part at the end where Bayly is picking his pastor school as the solution to these evils. … [Read more...]

Franklin Graham Uses Celebrity Deaths to Threaten Sinners With Hell

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Life and Times of Bruce GerencserLeave it to Fundamentalist Franklin Graham to use several of the recent celebrity deaths as evangelistic props for warning sinners of the certainty of death and eternal torture in hell by God if they fail to make a decision for Christ. You might be the nicest person in the world, but without Jesus you are headed for hell when you die. But, you can be a pussy-grabbing, misogynistic billionaire and still make it to heaven IF you pray the sinner’s prayer and really, really, really mean it. (Graham will be one of five clergymen at Donald Trump’s coronation.)Since Graham does not mention whether any of the … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Eyes Reveal Heart?

by Colin Campbell from Meat For Men - Revealed Through Your Eyes Continued: Signs of a Turned HeartEditor's note: While much of this series of Colin's is better than the usual pap he churns out. The series is about fathers and how they should behave. This bit about being able to judge others by their eyes is dangerous. No, you cannot always read the emotions of others in their eyes, winking is not trickery or flirting and you cannot see lust in eyes! … [Read more...]
