Another installment of giving better answers to the questions asked at Debi Pearl’s site message board for the book ‘Preparing To Be A Help Meet’. Many young ladies ask questions on all sorts of different subjects brought up by the book.

Here’s what we’re going to be doing here at NLQ. Every week, once or twice a week, I’ll be posting up one of the questions from the message board and ask you, our readers, to answer that poor soul’s question in a way that is logical,  rational and the best possible solution, in other words 1 … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Fundamentalist Sex Ed?

by Steven Brooks from No Greater Joy - Burning CoalsEditor's note: Sharing this because it's one of the rare times that someone in that world tries to teach/scare one of their children about the dangers of sex. Is it appropriate in your opinion to use passages of the Bible to try and frighten a child into sexual purity? Would it not have been better to also give some knowledge about sex along with this warning? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 2 – Change Your Mindset or Lose Your Husband?

by Alexis Rowe from No Greater Joy Magazine - Managing vs. LeadershipEditor's note: Don't you dare stress out your poor weak Christian man in any way. It's okay to get up at the crack of dawn to do your chores so you don't stress out your big man. How is that joyful living at all? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 1 – Change Your Mindset or Lose Your Husband?

by Alexis Rowe at No Greater Joy Magazine - Managing vs. LeadershipEditor's note: Another version of 'Control your emotions or else' fear-mongering that so many in the Quiverfull movement labor under. It always revolves around be cheerful or lose your family and/or salvation. What a sad scary way to live your life. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: A Devil in Every Coloring Book?

by Anonymous posted at The Last Hiker - Adult Coloring Books and Mandalas: A Warning for ChristiansEditor's note:While there's no evidence that this particular blogger is Quiverfull she/he has managed to write something very common in both the world of Quiverfull and Fundamentalist/Evangelical Christian in general - fear mongering over so many common things in life. Though the years we've seen so many things decried as tools of the devil, simple things like pogs, children's trading cards, cartoons, you-name-it. Fear mongering isn't healthy and is it not the importance you give to things that determines if they are good or evil? Besides, if mandalas make you uncomfortable (and this … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Fear That Everyone Around Your Children Are Molesters?

by Michael Pearl/'Tommy' in the March/April 2016 No Greater Joy magazine - Tommy's StoryEditor's note: Another handcrafted 'letter' from the Pearl's correspondence that seems to perfectly support his suppositions that you cannot trust anyone around your children; not pastors, not friends, not teachers. What do you think? Is this a real letter or one made up by the Pearls to frighten their audience into not thinking? Michael has some pretty vehement warnings posted all over this piece insisting that kids get permission from their parents before reading. If it's true then I'm immensely sorry for 'Tommy', but it seems a little too pat to be a real letter. If nothing else it shows how … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: So Now All Law Enforcement Officers Are Evil?

by Zsuzsanna Anderson from Are They All Yours? - Another Worthless CopEditor's note: I was and wasn't surprised to run into this rant on Zsuzsanna Anderson's blog after her husband Steven L. Anderson's incidents with law enforcement in their area. Zsu doesn't come out and say this is why you have to be armed to the teeth, but it is implied in her words. Does anyone really want people as hateful and paranoid as the Andersons armed? Granted, there have been more cases in the media of bad cops, but that does not mean all of them are awful. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Fear Mongering in the New Year?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Wake UpEditor's note: Sounds like Nancy is taking over from the old fear mongering predictions of 'The 700 Club" Pat Robertson, or at least trying her best to sow fear. Just be glad I didn't share her awful poetry about not allowing the children to play in the house. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Keep Your ‘Gift’ Wrapped by Not Having Sex?

by Jessie Minassian from Lies Young Women Believe - Christmas Eve Doesn't Cut ItEditor's note: This young woman tells a tale of the time she and her sister unwrapped all of their Christmas presents on Christmas Eve and how it totally ruined Christmas before going into a ham-fisted comparison of having sex before the wedding. … [Read more...]

Two Ways Modern Republicans Are Anti-Christian

by Samantha Field cross posted from Samantha P Field.comI was seven when I saw the original Star Wars trilogy, and eleven when The Phantom Menace came out. To say that Star Wars had an impact on me would be one hell of an understatement. I was obsessed. Completely and utterly obsessed. I loved everything about those stories, and almost everything I wrote for over a decade was Star Wars fanfiction. … [Read more...]
