Quoting Quiverfull: That Dreaded ‘P’ Word?

patriarchy

by James McDonald from Your Sacred Calling - The "P" WordThis was written back in April 2014 when the Bill Gothard and Doug Phillips sexual scandals were fresh and on everyone's mind. Remember how many Evangelicals backpedaled furiously from the idea of the word "Patriarch"? … [Read more...]

Food and Religion – Its Ugly Shadow

On 'Mad Men' Betty Draper Francis was thin-heavy-thin and it had more to do with her emotions than anything else. Like it does for many of us.

by Stephanie - a guest post at Lana Hope's Wide Open Ground. Please be sure to visit Stephanie at her blog - Stephanie Hoffpauir(Editors Note: In the wake of Thanksgiving and the build up to Christmas I think it is important to think about how much stress and unhappiness play a role in keeping us bound to some not so healthy habits. No fat shaming here, lawdy I'm the last person to be throwing fat-rocks, but just have to point out the hypocrisy in the church over weight. Where I attended we were told that being overweight was a huge sin, the sin of gluttony, which only made everyone feel guilty and eat even more. It added to the stress and seemed cruel considering the high percentage of … [Read more...]

What is That Sorry Worth?

sorrybart

by Living Liminal cross posted from her blog Living LiminalSince my own devastating 'church' experience, I've been reading and learning all I can about abuse. What it looks like. How it manifests.

Not Quoting Quiverfull: When Even Conservative Christians Think Quiverfull is Wrong

missingmark

by Wade Burleson from Ethics Daily - Missing The Mark: Eight Flaws in Quiverfull TheologyFound this gem through Von Ohlman's True Love Doesn't Wait - Eight Leaps of Illogic where he attempts to take down this piece by Burleson. Obviously this is written from a conservative Christian point of view, but it looks like even the more conservative branches of religion are starting to realize what a dangerous theological bend Quiverfull is. … [Read more...]

Not Quoting Quiverfull: The Dones?

boxinggloves

by Mark Sandlin from the Patheos blog The God Article - The Rise of 'The Dones' as the Church Kills Spiritual Community Mark is also the founder of The Christian LeftExcellent article and observations. Many of us from the former Quiverfull community are now part of 'The Dones', being told we were never 'real' Christians or we would have never walked away in the first place.  Predictably there are a few True Believers in the comments slinging Bible verses and hate. How about you, dear readers? Are you a SBNR, The Nones or part of The Dones? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: If You Get Sick From “Doing It All” Then God Has Other Plans?

sickmomma

by Jenny Erwin from United Christian Homeschoolers Upstate - Wednesdays Words of Encouragement: May 'He' Get All The GloryFound this through Ladies Against Feminism and Be Not Weary websites. This sounds so very much like the stories of many of us Quiverfull walk-away moms that it's frightening. The difference is that she's still at that place where she cannot admit her own chosen religious lifestyle is causing her great physical harm. I hope she makes the connection soon and does what she needs to do to heal her body. Any life style that is destroying your body cannot be healthy for anyone, it sure doesn't benefit  anyone in the family, it makes it nearly impossible to do the things … [Read more...]

“Real Marriage” review: 107-122, ‘Sex: God, Gross or Gift?’

marriage-bed

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating The Dragons This chapter seems to be Mark and Grace’s attempt at establishing a historical context for arguments they’ll make later; it’s basically nothing more than an extremely truncated and condensed version of how sex has been viewed in Ancient Near Eastern (“biblical”) and Christian cultures. The unfortunate thing is that their history lesson is … [Read more...]
