Quoting Quiverfull: Bite Your Tongue?

Quotes1-300x250

From Ladies Against Feminism - Godly Speech People say,” I always say what I think,” as if that is a good quality, that is a terrible quality. I wouldn’t admit it to anybody. In fact, I would confess it before God. And also, somebody who always speaks what is on his mind and on his emotions is somebody who is a slave to his emotions. I feel sorry for the poor person.

Commenting Policy

comments

by Calulu We've never really spelled out any rules on people commenting on NLQ before but the majority of the posters have been respectful of each other, posted insightful words and even when disagreeing with the author or admin stuck to the issue instead of using it as an opportunity to bash any person. That's how it should be in a civilized society. Our two rules of commenting are - No personal attacks/name calling on authors or other commenters. Be respectful please. (Spelling this out out for the fundamentalist Christians that arrive a year or two late on the Duggar family postings and go ballistic. Don't do that!) We will not allow conspiracy theories or drama from other … [Read more...]

by Libby Anne cross posted from her blog Love Joy Feminism Created To Be His Help Meet, pp. 94-98 Debi starts off this section by discussing the 1989 movie Dad.

Basically, a busy young executive is called home to help his ailing parents, and he ends up helping his dad, who had been growing senile, live more fully and learns to live more fully himself in the process. Upon waking up from a coma, the father suffers delusions that he spent his life on a dairy farm, rather than as an aerospace industry worker, and keeps speaking of people who never existed. … [Read more...]
