Landon Schott Says Millions of People Celebrated Homosexual ‘Love’ by Watching the Super Bowl

gay-pride-flag

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Life and Times of Bruce GerencserEditor's note: Just had to post this in the aftermath of the big game. It's a prime example of what goes on in Quiverful,l Fundamentalist and Evangelical theology, simple entertainment or things imbued with imaginary Satanic overtones designed to trip up Good Christians. If the God of the CPM world is so weak as to not be able to have you resist Satan or temptation then what in the heck are they doing worshiping him?Along with tens of millions of Americans, I watched the Super Bowl on Sunday. The Gerencser family has a Super Bowl tradition of gathering at the home of our second-oldest son and … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Submit To Your Husband To Win Him To Jesus?

quotingquiverfull

by Stephane Singletary of Purposeful and Meaningful - What To Do When You Are Married To An Unbelieving HusbandEditor's note: This is another one of those incredibly toxic beliefs in Evangelical Quiverfull, 'Submit enough in the right way and your husband will be changed enough to treat you the way you long to be treated.' It never works, it just creates an environment for weak men to become even weaker and to abuse their wives mentally, emotionally, financially and physically. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Taking Every Thought Captive?

quotingquiverfull

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Take Them CaptiveEditor's note: If I were to write a list of the more toxic ideas in Evangelical Christianity this one would be top of the list. In Quiverfull you are never allowed to feel your own emotions or think anything even slightly critical or counter to any idea presented as the truth. Can it be helpful to organize your thoughts or focus on other things when your thoughts go into some dark spaces? Yes, but the world of Quiverfull takes it all too far into suppressing your thoughts and feelings to the detriment of your own emotional health. Yes, Nancy, you CAN help others when you are experiencing negative thoughts or emotions. You aren't … [Read more...]

A Brief Visit to ‘The War Room’ – (Shut Up and Get in the Closet)

warroom

by Cindy Kunsman cross posted from her blog Under Much Grace Does anyone remember old Doug Phillips' San Antonio Independent Christian Film Festival, back before the demise of Vision Forum? Well, Vision Forum may have dissolved but its acolytes didn't. It seems that they continue to produce sappy, schmaltzy films which seem wholesome and virtuous. Those of us who are familiar with the religion and the lifestyle quickly recognize that the films like Fireproof and Courageous aren't just sugar and schmaltz. … [Read more...]

When Reality Collides With Earnest Expectations

CindyFoster

by Cindy Foster cross posted from her blog Finding FundamentalI’ve never been much good at New Year’s Resolutions.I tend to over-think everything including all the areas in which I need to improve... so much... that instead of getting motivated and energized by the practice, I end up defeated and discouraged. I just can not seem to make it work for me.I know what the problem is. My resolutions are entirely unrealistic and being that ‘resolutions‘ are supposed to be made for the long haul, it is necessary to evaluate them for their importance and edit out the trivial if one has any hope of keeping them. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Dressing ‘Modestly’ Protects You From Creeps?

quotingquiverfull

by Zack Clark from Girl Defined - Smart Dudes Aren't Looking at Your BodyEditor's note: I beg to differ. I don't care if you're covered up from neck to ankle, there are always going to be some men that will look and lust over that exposed inch of ankle skin. Cover that ankle skin and some guys will be drooling over your ear lobes. Plus creepy guys are going to approach you no matter what. Better to teach about sexual consent and how to deal gracefully with pushy guys that will be trying to hit on you uninvited than to claim if you dress modestly enough you'll be protected against those types. … [Read more...]

NLQ Question of the Week: Why is Every Marital Problem the Wives Responsibility?

Questionoftheweek

This is a new series we have started running on Thursdays. Examining some of the questions involving long held Quiverfull theology and life.This very afternoon the photo below of Anna Duggar and her cheating husband Josh Duggar appeared on my Facebook feed with that horrible quote on it - "If your husband runs astray, it is no one's fault but your own. I wasn't capable of being the wife I needed to be for Josh. Looking back on it now, I think it made us both stronger. It made us who we are today, enriching our commitment to one another' - Anna Renee Duggar. Did Anna Duggar actually speak those words on a recent "Counting On" special or post it on social media? I don't know. There's no … [Read more...]
