NLQ Question of the Week: Why is a Man’s Infidelity Always The Wife’s Fault?

Questionoftheweek

This is a new series we have started running on Thursdays. Examining some of the questions involving long held Quiverfull theology and life.One of the sadder things that has happened after Josh Duggar's infidelity was exposed is the number of Christians expressing the idea that a wife is always responsible when the husband has sex with someone else during their marriage. It's an idea that has been mentioned even in the mainstream media, that poor heartbroken betrayed Anna Duggar is going to be blaming herself and it's likely the entire family will blame her. Like she doesn't have enough trauma and pain in her life this unBiblical theology point is going to add to that. It's already … [Read more...]

What You Need To Know About Quiverfull And The Duggars

Vyckie

by Vyckie Garrison NLQ FounderFrom her Facebook page answering this Craigslist rant:to the people and supporters of the Quiverfull Cult (United States)You incestuous brainwashed bastards should all be taken out and beaten within an inch of your lives! The sickest part is that you get away with the shit you do because of your so called "christian" values. Personally, I believe all pedophiles should be shot or hung! People had better wake up before these "christian" nutbags get ahold of your children!Someone in Seattle is super pissed ... the outrage is understandable, but also misguided. I'm going to keep saying this until somebody actually hears me: … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 1 – Children Are Foolish?

quotingquiverfull

by Debi Pearl from No Greater Joy Magazine - Foolishness or WisdomEditor's note: Jaw dropped reading this first paragraph. Debi's calling kids names again, this time the child that needs to be treated with a little loving care is suddenly the 'whining sissy'?  This piece is so full of name calling, blaming and shaming that I'm breaking it into parts for NLQ. Isn't fooling around doing the things Debi describes something all children do sometimes and a normal part of childhood play? When did it become a sin to be a normal child? … [Read more...]

Christians Taught Me I Can’t Trust My Deceitful Heart

samantha

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Samantha P Field.comThe heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it? Jeremiah 17:9 That verse got quoted at me … well, a lot. Looking back, it seems to be one of the most common refrains of my childhood, right along with “foolishness is bound in the heart of a child.” Looking back, I’m unsure how these concepts got tied to things like honor your father and mother and in the multitude of councilors there is wisdom and your word is a lamp unto my feet but somehow, they did. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Caring What Others Do In Their Bedrooms?

quotingquiverfull

by Vaughn Ohlman from True Love Doesn't Wait - Of Sodomy and MarriageEditor's note: Von is speaking here for the decision by the Supreme Court of the United State's ruling that all forms of civil marriage between two consenting adults of any sex are legal. For years many Christians have denied that they want to control every single minor aspect of others lives, but Mr. Ohlman outs that lie by claiming that they do want to control even what you do in the privacy of your bedroom with your significant other. Where in the Bible does it say to police the sexual antics of others? It doesn't. … [Read more...]

NLQ Question of the Week: Why Are Fundamentalists So Quick To Claim They Are Being Persecuted?

Questionoftheweek

This is a new series we have started running on Thursdays. Examining some of the questions involving long held Quiverfull theology and life.We keep seeing this in the world of quiverfull/evangelical/fundamentalist Christianity that if things do not go according to their plan then they start to loudly protest that they are being persecuted. This is what the Duggars still claim over the legal release of the police report of about Josh's molestation of five young girls. … [Read more...]

“I Am Oswin Oswald. I Fought The Daleks And I Am Human. Remember Me.”

nora

by Nora Woodhouse cross posted from her blog A Heart Like MineWhen dealing with FOO (family of origin) that is dysfunctional; any encounter can feel like you have stepped into a strange world in which you've encountered Daleks and they promptly set about their agenda of exterminating you. In real life i is not an encounter with physical harm (though sometimes) but one where your spirit gets exterminated even when you put up a good fight. And just like with the Daleks a dysfunctional FOO will try to get at you anyway they can, whether it's "extermination" or like with Oswin Oswald- assimilation. Either way you feel like you lose pieces of yourself and have gotten mired in toxic muck. It … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 2 – A Woman’s Submission Determines Her Husband’s Success?

quotingquiverfull

by Lori Alexander of Always Learning - Are You Preventing Your Husband's Success?Editor's note: I'm afraid this isn't any better than yesterday's bit. She's still venturing into legal territory she has no business in. You cannot refuse to hire someone merely based on how their marriage appears to you from the outside. Interviewing people who know the family is pretty extreme and invasive. They might check the applicant's social media accounts, but not everyone in the family. She claims this is what large corporations does. No, no they do not. They may run psychological testing, such as a personality test to determine your honesty levels or to make sure you are emotionally stable. Some … [Read more...]
