CTBHHM: David’ Sin Was All Bathsheba’s Fault

Bathsheba

by Libby Anne cross posted from her blog Love, Joy, FeminismCreated To Be His Help Meet, p. 207I have written so often about the tendency of what I call “the purity culture” to blame women for men’s sexual actions. Even rape is too often blamed on the woman doing something to deserve it, inciting his lust with her clothing or her actions. Modesty is preached as the solution, and women are told to cover up. Women become responsible for men’s sexual actions. In this, the last section of Debi’s chapter on being “chaste,” we see this idea taken to a horrific extreme. … [Read more...]

birthcontrolabortions

by Libby Anne cross posted from her blog Love, Joy, FeminismEditor's note: This has been previously posted here at NLQ almost two years ago. In light of the recent piece on what some Christian Fundamentalist Evangelicals such as the Duggars and Steven L Anderson erroneously  believe about female anatomy, birth control and biology this seems like a perfect time to revisit this piece. Libby Anne did an excellent job researching and numbers crunching to refute the Christian Mythology of birth control!The spring of my sophomore year of college I was president of my university’s Students for Life chapter. The fall of my junior year of college I cut my ties with the pro-life movement. Five … [Read more...]

by Bambi in her blog In The Nursery of the Nation - When There is No Joy to be Found in MotherhoodSome hints of No Greater Joy's Debi Pearl, her letters and her truly abusive advice is echoed by Bambi here.The letter she received at her blog: I prayed for 2 years to be able to stay home with my daughter and son I was then pregnant with.

Morning-After-Pill

Quoting Quiverfull: No Rights or Choice of Your Own?

choosing

by Oswald Chambers from his book "My Utmost For His Highest"Found in the Above Rubies archive in an article 'Can God Provide? My Best Investment' used as rationalization to not use 9 years of college outside of the home. The writer sacrificed her education to be a stay at home homeschooling mother most of the time. "...if you are living the life of faith you will exercise your right to waive your rights, and let God choose for you." Is choosing to do something else after investing that much time, effort and money in your education letting God choose for you or are you choosing? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Never Tell Others Anything ‘Not Nice’ About Your Husband?

shutyourmouth

by Erin Harrison from No Greater Joy magazine - Virtuous ConversationTalking bad about our husbands to others can spoil his reputation among the brethren. When a wife unloads to friends about how unreasonable or controlling he is, it may make her feel better for the moment, but it will spoil his good name for a long time to come. I have had two sisters in Christ continually cry to me about how horrible their husbands treated them. One wife would call me in desperation, telling me that she could not take his controlling nature any longer. She felt she was not allowed to go anywhere or do anything but serve him. It did not matter that she had talents and dreams. She was forced to set her … [Read more...]

CTBHHM: Wear a Sack

wearasack1

by Libby Anne cross posted from her blog Love, Joy, FeminismCreated To Be His Help Meet, pp. 201—202We’re in Debi’s chapter on being “chaste,” and not surprisingly, we’re discussing modesty. I actually found this passage really interesting myself, because there are several times when Debi departs from the conventional evangelical script—though not in good ways.A chaste woman is a modest woman. God speaks of a woman maintaining her chastity and purity by the clothes she wears. “In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array; But (which becometh women professing godlines … [Read more...]
