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...]

Quoting Quiverfull: The HPV Vaccine Gives Girls Permission to Have Sex?

by Steven L. Anderson from Faithful Word Baptist Church - Physicians of No ValueEditor's note: Regardless of how you line up on the to vaccinate or not vaccinate debate it's a stretch at best to say that vaccinating a child against a possible future STD is giving them carte blanche to go out and start having piles of promiscuous sexual activity with anything or anyone. He misses the point that the reason Gardasil is given is to protect girls against an STD that leads to high rates of uterine cancer later. There is a long term goal benefit.Most of Anderson's sermon can also be distilled down to don't go to the doctor except as a last resort and the Bible holds all the medical wisdom … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Daycare Has Caused All of Society’s Ills?

by Kevin Swanson as quoted by Raw Story - Kevin Swanson Worries Day Care Will Turn Kids GayEditor's note: Kevin has blamed all sorts of things for turning children gay: Girl Scout Cookies, the Disney movie "Frozen", the children's movie "How To Train Your Dragon" and more. Now he's blaming that and many other things he doesn't agree with on putting children in daycare? I think it sounds like he should be a daycare because no real life genuine adult could possibly be as childish and tantrum-throwing toddler-like. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Keeping Your Eyes on God Stops Masturbation?

by Fred Rochester from Prevailing Word - Oops, I Did it AgainEditor's note: I found this pastor while tooling around the internet. Don't know if he's quiverfull or not, but he's clearly as obsessed with sexual matters as someone we quote here a lot - Biblical Gender Roles. I suspect BGR would not approve of anything Pastor Fred is saying. Why is sex such a shameful problem in Evangelicalism and Fundamentalism. Lots and lots of hangups. When I read that Scripture, Paul issued a warning that if you do not pay attention to your surroundings, you will fall.As long as you pay attention to your surroundings, you will not fall.The moment you take your eyes off of the Lord, fail to put … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Cover Up You Temptress?

by Lisa Jacobson as reposted by Daughters of the King - Avert Your EyesEditor's note: We've shared this piece of shaming and blaming before, but it bears revisiting in light of the sexual scandals in many churches and the budding rape culture in the worlds of fundamentalism, evangelical and quiverfull Christianity.  What about teaching young men to not think of women's bodies as pieces of meat meant for sex or sexual temptation, and to treat them like genuine people? Do you think that might end this sort of torment for this poor kid if he wasn't hyper-sexualized by purity culture? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Women Aren’t Educated Today Because of ‘Mental Laziness’?

by Anna Sophia and Elizabeth Botkin of Visionary Daughters - The History of Womanhood That Feminists Don't Want You to KnowEditor's note: This is the last bit I'll be quoting from this poisonously stupid article. Women aren't educated today because of 'mental laziness'? I dare those young ladies to come to the college language classes I'm taking and tell the young women there that they are mentally lazy. Plus the class ratios seem to be five females for every male in those classes. From every ridiculous statement made by the Botkin sisters in their article I'd have to say that mental laziness seems to be more of a problem in their society rather than in society at large. Emphasis in the … [Read more...]
