Let’s Out the Poisonous Ideas/Scriptures in the Quiverfull & Patriarchal Movements?

by Suzanne TitkemeyerGreetings! I am currently on the road, driving down in the deep south to see relatives and being exposed to a capacious amount of ridiculously bad ideas Fundamentalist Christianity has to offer. This morning I was telling Vyckie Garrison of driving through rural Mississippi, hitting search on my car radio and coming up with ten different Christian radio stations in a row. I was stuck listening to them for a few hours and was struck by some of the ideas put forward and flouted as 'The Truth' that are just dangerous to a person. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Unmarried Stay Poor?

Ladies Against Feminism has republished a piece from the Mercador by Nicole King called Marriage linked to income increase. If I'm reading this right it sounds like LAF and the original author are saying that a) get married to the first living breathing man with prospects or education to avoid poverty and b) dooming non-white women to poverty by the statistics used by the Pew Research Center and the New York Times. Classy, LAF, so so classy.. … [Read more...]

“Men Need Respect, Women Need Love” – Really?

by Kristen Rosser cross posted from her blog Wordgazer's WordsAn anonymous commenter on my last blog post told me this: God, in His wisdom, made man the head of the union between man and his wife. He has created a desire in the woman to be loved, and in the man to be respected, and there is no amount of social re-engineering that can change that. This seems to me to be a good opportunity to address the whole love-vs-respect idea that most male-headship proponents espouse.  Where does this idea come from, that God made women to need love more than respect, and men to need respect more than love-- and that this is a basis for belief in male headship?The chief source of this idea … [Read more...]

When Church Hurts: Part 2

by Ellen cross posted from her blog When Church HurtsSpeaking out against wrongs being perpetrated in the church . . . that was my most egregious sin.  And because of it, I had lies told about me, people eavesdropped on my conversations, and I received hate mail from a group of people telling me that I was a terrible person.My only response was to continue talking occasionally to the lay leader of the church, Denise, and to send Elliot  my questions and thoughts in emails – often asking if we could meet to talk, but never getting a response. At one point (perhaps more than one but only one I know about), Elliot shared my emails with the consistory and they wrote a letter telling me th … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Protecting Your Courting Daughter in a Pornified (not real word!) World

by RVD from the blog The Christian Pundit - Of Course Courtship is Fundamentally FlawedWonder if the admin at The Christian Pundit realizes that the definition of 'Pundit' is "an expert in a particular subject or field who is frequently called on to give opinions about it to the public." Experts usually do not make up words or misspell others. Who exactly is calling on these 'experts'for their opinions? The name of the site is deceptive. … [Read more...]
